You crApple loving faggots can't tell the difference between "their" and "there" so it makes all your "points" null and void except for one, you are a cock-sucking crApple fanboi sheep and a fucktard.

Troll posting as AC asshole complains about language usage, and uses idiot language to express displeasure with spelling meanings. Duh.

Comment Re:Millennials and "codes of conduct". (Score 1) 247

To many Millennials, a "code of conduct" isn't something to help keep social interaction civil. It's actually a weapon that they use against those whom they dislike.

Power corrupts. It's always been true, and it's still true. That's why a focus on personal and consensual choice, "your right to swing stops at my face", and liberty in general is needed to keep the error rate down to a dull roar -- just about every committee or action of a legislature is an act of exerting power. Far too often, that power is inappropriately construed, far too often that power is inappropriately applied. Classing is another wielding of power that consistently proves to be used as a means of harm and revenge. I can think of numerous examples in the technical realm, from ridiculous and irrelevant "certifications" to college degree requirements regardless of your knowledge and experience, to portions of the GPL.

As for millennials, this didn't start with them, not even close. As a 60-year old fellow, I could go on for pages with accurate stories about social codes of conduct that were (and in many cases still are) used as attempts to bludgeon people into compliance with everything from superstition (by which I primarily mean various aspects of religion), to the red scare, to the 'Murica mindset, to the ridiculously exaggerated "sex trafficking" nonsense, to drug use and the drug war, slut shaming, gangsterism, terrorism, and so on. Seems to me that you're probably just finding the millennials more annoying because for whatever reason, their behavior has clashed with your outlook -- which is not to say anyone is right or wrong, just that there's an up-front conflict.

Too true. +10

The guy who posts "the purpose of updates is to slow your machine down" is cool, but the guy who posts a factual statement (El Cap has a lot faster UI rendering due to the use of the new Metal frameworks, big improvements in app launch times, etc.) is a shill.

Uh huh.

Mod up as informative and true as hell!
