Yeah, I use it a lot. I find it has a better signal-to-noise ratio than things like facebook.
since they have yet to announce that they're completely removing the G+ tentacles from all of their other services.
They have announced that, months ago.
So don't join that community then, if it doesn't suit your tastes.
You're extrapolating on your dislike of a single example to everything. Everyone is terrible at stats and they're not going to get better while they're all using a single anecdote to support their point!
Someone elsewhere commented that it's expensive in terms of maintenance, it costs fuel, it increases the chance of engine failure, things along those lines.
going beyond that would have been tricky, because at the limit of 2.8 million samples per second of I and Q data @ 8 bit, it was pushing the limit of what the hardware could actually do: there were quite a few drop-outs. i'm sure the proprietary driver could handle that data rate, but the reverse-engineered gnu/linux one simply couldn't.
2.8msps is a limit of the hardware in the mode that uses them as an SDR. In DVB-T mode, it works somewhat differently and so can do higher bandwidth, but as an SDR it's in a sort of debug mode, which has limitations.
Really, if you need to go above that your next step is probably a hackrf.
You should read "Command and Control." It's a very good book, but you come away with the feeling that it was more good luck than good management that there were no accidental nuclear detonations. And then you consider that the Soviet side was probably at least as bad, if not worse, and you're surprised there's still a planet here at all.
What is OKR?
Attitudes like this is a large part of what causes us to need a security industry.
You are part of the problem.
Rust is probably harder to get to grips with then C. The difference is that when you screw up in rust, it usually yells at you. When you screw up in C, it blithely goes on doing what it thinks you want.
"We can fix it later" is no excuse for delivering shit to start with.
If you want to exclude people who aren't like you from your own community, that's your prerogative. What is happening is that people are saying that it is not a good way to have the optimal community.
Also, your parasitism point is
Sure, some people are jerks. That happens. But what the result of using "SJW" and "political correctness gone mad!" is, is that it gets thrown the moment someone says "hey, how about we try to be a bit more nice to other people? you know, try it, see what happens." All of a sudden many people go "rah! you can't tell me what to do! You're such a SJW!"
It's reactionary, stupid, and hinders having a good community.
All these so-called SJW people are trying to do is give a voice to people who don't have much of their own to stop them being so excluded. Because being excluded causes them to have less of a voice. You see how there's a feedback loop there, right?
That's just simply not true. At all. Why do you think that?
If all else fails, lower your standards.
