Comment: Re:Your pro-censorship stance (Score 1) 127 127

I have been a member of Fark (and most of the time a paying member of Total Fark) for almost 12 years now, and apparently I was "shadowbanned" recently. I have been banned for a day or two once before, for good reason. This time, I have no idea why this happened. Last week I tried repeatedly to post comments and they quit showing up. No reason given. I sent feedback, and never got a response. I agree with and can verify personally most of the negative comments on here about the site. Fortunately, my TF subscription ran out a couple of days ago, and I'm never going back. You, Mr. Curtis, are a fucking piece of shit asshole. Sincerely, show me, former TFer.

Also, you have to be careful with the algorithms you use for a thermostat. As an example, you don't want something that will allow switching off your A/C and then switching it back on in 10 seconds. You can ruin a compressor (relatively expensive hardware) like that.
