hmmm... what about slashdot?
and i feel vindicated
reddit needs to pay its mods (say, a cut of ad revenue from their sub)
if they work for free, they have no real power over them. which is unstable as current developments indicate
also, if they pay them, they can fire them
you can say paying mods will change the tenor of reddit but this is bullshit: what motivates someone to mod for free is a sort of pathetic need for power, which is actually worse than any nefariousness due to filthy lucre as their motivation
bye bye reddit, you were fun. but you have a fatal flaw in your power structure:
uncaring admins and abusive mods
so what's the next site to rise?
Ingress does have moderation controls. Every single submitted portal has to be approved by Niantic. It often takes 9-12 months before new portals are approved/denied. Basically, Niantic staff approved these portals.
But, really, there has to be a degree of cognitive dissonance between the hope you'll do well and be super rich
The difference between con-man and entrepreneur can be a thin line.
I've known a few people who fancied themselves the latter, but had worked themselves into such a feverish pitch trying to get there ended up as the former.
Sometimes people convince themselves things really are going to work out OK, even when completely unfounded. The human brain doesn't always like lying to itself.
If they can stay up for 80 hours, they should be able to do a "round-the-world" flight too.
It's going to take several days to fly from Japan to Hawaii. In the process he's beaten the record for longest solo flight ever.
P.S. Are you 12?
Are you asshole? Or do you just play one on the internet?
It's a single person aircraft, travelling at an average speed of 50 to 100 km/h (31 to 62 mph).
Yes, it's not a continuous flight. But it will, nonetheless, be the first time a solar powered aircraft will do it, and every leg is pretty much an epic task.
It's still circumnavigation.
So, boo hoo, you disagree with the terminology. Nobody else gives a damn.
I don't care about a plane making a series of relatively short flights under optimal conditions (daylight), and I don't see why anyone else does either.
Well, that doesn't seem to be what is happening:
Solar Impulse 2 took off from Nagoya, Japan on Sunday for its audacious five-day flight across the Pacific Ocean to Hawaii with Swiss pilot and Solar Impulse co-founder Andre Borschberg at the helm. It has since stayed in the air for three days and nights without using a single drop of fuel, grabbing the distance and duration records, 5,663 km (3,518 mi) and 80 hours respectively, in the process.
This isn't some jet engine which does this in a few hours.
You can whine all you want, but the records are real.
They're for solar aviation, which means it's a lot harder and a lot slower.
Call us back when you've done better.
your alternative method is inferior as the specific request is tech *skills*, which you find on resumes, people speaking to their merits to get hired
not "tech appearing together on message boards," which indicated a whole host of relationships, relationship by skillset being far down the list
the simple fact is there is no perfect methodology so criticizing the methodology for being imperfect is without merit. and in articulating a yet even more inferior methodology in your latest comment i have to assume you're just arguing for the sake of arguing, you're barely trying, you're not serious, and so this useless thread is over
Well, should that happen, then all the people who have been demanding their 2nd amendment rights be recognized will know what to do.
Yup, if we showed you the level of abuse we'll be doing you'd get scared off and not use our service, and our IPO could be in jeopardy.
For now they're trying to pretend they won't start acting like assholes as soon as they can.
i was joking!
are you joking?
Can't tell you how many times a day I hear or say "The 9".
You mean the Nazgul??
I always thought IBM was evil, but I never expected that.
the arnold schwarzenegger move "terminator genisys" is in theatres and hollywood wanted a really effective advertising stunt
I have no idea if it was the government or not.
I'm just no longer willing to dismiss out of hand that it was, and no longer wiling to accept the dismissal of the government being involved as crackpot.
As I said, stuff which used to be tinfoil-hat-crazy is now pretty much a daily reality.
Do I think they're beyond sowing some fear to be allowed to declare it under their control? Not even a little.
In fact, given everything else we know has actually happened, it's disturbingly plausible.
You simply can't be paranoid enough these days, because reality keeps trumping fantasy. And what used to sounds ridiculous is now pretty much established as fact.
are you saying there exists some implementation that analyzes every resume in existence perfectly? it's "incomplete" in the sense that any such effort is incomplete and imperfect by nature of the problem. your criticism is invalid, you don't understand the task if you expect completeness is possible
Honestly, things which 10 years ago would have been the domain of crackpots is now 100% fact.
These days it seems like no matter how paranoid you are, what is really happening is even crazier.
When law enforcement commits perjury in the form of parallel construction, when they withhold knowledge of their surveillance technology, when they lie about what they're doing without a warrant, when they lie about how many times a technology has led to an arrest
You can't make up stuff anymore which is as crazy as reality.
And given that these guys have cut into everybody else's telecomms
It really is hard to dismiss "crackpot" these days, because the reality is shit like that is actually happening.
