As an outsider to Reddit, it seems odd that it wasn't previously recognized that hosted content could be altered by the hosts. It's surprising and concerning that the CEO flubbed about like he did but the response seems...disproportionate.

And with people like Xenographic talking about "investigations" and using other grand terms to describe what sounds like a bunch of twerds scoping for victims, it sounds like Reddit may be making a move in the right direction.

While that may be true, the compromises appear to have been made with good intentions. I mean, the guy apparently built it to share with his family, so some accommodations to comfort would be necessary. Anyway, can you really fault the guy for wanting a love-seat instead of those cock-blocker seats?

I really, really dislike the whole "from the foo dept." thing, such as this:

Also, the mobile interface displays something along the lines of "this post is hidden due to filtering preferences" or something wherever a filtered post would have appeared. Oftentimes there's more space taken up in the thread by these notifications than by comments. Please turn the filtered post notifications off :)

Well, you're wrong about the constancy of isotope ratios. There're plenty of processes, chemical, biological, and physical that lead to isotopic fractionation. The question is whether bananas enrich the radioactive isotope of potassium in the fruit. I don't know whether that is the case for bananas, but it is so for other fruit.

Wikipedia often provides an incomplete picture. You might want to read other sources before using all that bold text on uninformed shit.
