dunno about that. many people want to APPEAR good and decent there. TOO FUCKING BAD LYNCH MOBS AND DENYING TRIAL is pretty fucking far from being decent. yet statistics and probabilities say that some people in the lynch mob were rapists too. so yeah, they got a lot of work ahead of them in being viewed as fair and civilized society.

Yeah, why don't the fuckers just follow your shining personal example?

agreed, ddg is my default as well. i also like the bangs feature, so I can type into my browser's search bar "alexander hamilton !w" and it takes me immediately to the wikipedia page for alexander hamilton without needing to deal with any annoying click throughs.

I don't need ddg for that, firefox keywords work just fine. Dunno about other browsers, though.

No. Children are underdeveloped and require a considerable amount of investment before they create value. Compared to adults where the investment has already been made and who now cannot pay it back, children are worth less.

So unless a child holds the promise of creating 'value' in the future, it is worthless to you? How about children with disabilities? Or old people who have spent all their 'value'? Or adults without any particular skill?
It is a great misfortune of modern Western civilization that power is concentrated in the hands of people like you - those who think economic value is the only value.
