as someone who saw Carcass and Obituary in Nov, and who is about to see Napalm Death (and Voivod, and Black Crown Initiate, and Ringworm, and ...)... WTF does your post have to do with anything?

OH!

You're saying that these intense, but short, broadcasts are examples of interstellar speed metal; a-la Napalm Death's sub-second song "You Suffer" ... ?

then say so!

don't be a hater; it's a solid "B" effort from the parent-post. You can argue it down to a "C", but that's as far as you'll get. Lulling the reader into submission (your complaint about it taking too long) is an actual STRATEGY. Are you familiar with how certain readers can gloss over typos? That's what our beheaderaswp is using as a trapping action. Now you can also argue that the barb "never going to give" isn't worth burying with the lead-up, but while humor bursts from the unexpected there is also a joy in the familiar. I'm sorry if this attempt isn't up to your standards, but it hits the standard.

Spoke with a friend in NJ, and apparently they used to get on the order of $700 an SREC! Highest I've ever seen was $180? something like that. And as part of the estimate for ROI when I had my 7.2kw array installed, they modeled SRECs as falling off completely in the next year or so (*I'd have to dig that document out... and that sounds like effort).

specifically with regards to accidentally freezing types. You've got to declare stuff with similar signatures to get your instances all nice and defined. But if you put something on the wrong line or do things in a different order... YOU'VE BROKEN IT!

as a long time Farker*, what will constitute sexism will be the sniff test.

It's basically "if you aren't in the clique and know the moderators, your post will be scrutinized for context. If you're in the clique, you'll get a pass unless you are actively harassing someone in a thread."

So the enforcement will be like all enforcement; subjective and prone to favoritism, But, to be fair, this is their club so they can make the rules.
