It is pretty clear that the majority view at this point on Slashdot is that sexism is either imaginary, overrated, or just something women should put up with because essentially any measure to correct it is anti-men, or anti-equality, or affirmative action, or quota management, or whatever.

Might have something to do with the frequency of which these kinds of allegations turn out to be imaginary or overrated. In this case so far all we have is an allegation.

The physical risk to the driver, and the driver's skill under pressure are what makes watching motor racing exciting.

I see a lot of people assert that, but I wonder how many of them are racing fans. Personally I'd rather see robots - the race could be a lot more aggressive with nobody's life on the line.

Sure. That's what you do when you want to get something into the headlines you know isn't true. You wait for someone like Buzzfeed to publish it, then you report on the fact that they published it. That's why I called it "laundering".

The purveyors of this "report" shopped it around to all the big media outlets (including CNN), and nobody would touch it. But once Buzzfeed put out a story CNN could use it as a hook to associate Trump with allegations they didn't think were credible enough to publish under its own banner.

Some of my readers ask me what a "Serial Port" is. The answer is: I don't know. Is it some kind of wine you have with breakfast?
