But you also have an overwhelming majority of young Greeks voting no, on the basis of "it's your fault you loaned it to my parents, you should have known they were lying, and there's no way I can pay it back, anyway."

Older Greeks, I can have a little less sympathy for. But the younger generation, that did nothing to cause this mess, and is expected to live in debt slavery for it? I can't blame them for saying "no." Otherwise they're just perpetuating the system. It'll come back to bite them again 10 years from now, and their children 10 years after that.

I never left. /.'s been my home page for 15+ years. But, it does not encompass everything I want to discuss on the internet, so I want a general purpose discussion forum, too.

Sadly, though, while /. is a shadow of its former self, it's still better than any of the alternatives. And yes, I'm a subscriber at soylent, but there's nobody there.

Who knows. But I hope this turns into something really great for her. She's proven over and over again that she's a dedicated, talented, hard working employee who believed in her job, and earned the trust of the public, politicians, celebrities, everybody. I hope she has job offers pouring in.

And people have loyalty to the mods and the other posters on the sub, not the admins. If the mods of /r/IAmA or /r/AskScience said "fuck it, we're going to voat," lots and lots of people would go with them.
