I wish we lived in a world where facts mattered.

The only semblance of an argument you can make for not disclosing the full email addresses of anyone that sends you a threat is that email addresses are easy to spoof. That’s as close as you can possibly come to a legitimate argument against it.

if your reporter tells you that they are facing threats online for posting true information, and your response is to tell them to delete the true information and then punish them for posting it in the first place, what are you even doing

the precedent that this sets is so utterly absurd and untenable that it's almost impossible to imagine that the post doesn't walk this back. except, well, they haven't yet, so there's that.

In an effort to convince me they don’t sound like Trump supporters, Sanders supporters are now trying to convince me that the only possible way he could lose the Democratic primary is if it were rigged. Something sounds vaguely familiar about that line of reasoning, though. 🤔

Fun fact for Holocaust Remembrance Day: this was the same tactic used to keep European Jews out of the United States in the 1930s.

So, on Holocaust Remembrance Day, a thread on Jewish religious/philosophical responses to the Shoah. (Before I go into that, I'll again note both that Jews are a people, not simply a religion, AND that you can't divest Jewish identity of elements Christians consider "religious.")

That sounds like a recipe for hate crimes.

Hopefully not. We already subsidize car ownership with free parking and paying for road infrastructure from the general fund, as well as not making people pay for their emissions. Giving people free chargers would be just as bad. Buy buses instead.

There’s no editorial curation on email, though. Facebook and Twitter are doing a deep analysis and making conscious editorial decisions about what appears on their platforms. That doesn’t apply to any of those others. Facebook is closer to a publisher, and they actively harm us.

It still blows my mind that the winning song & record of the year at this year's and winner of the samples the manic beeping sound that the traffic lights make in Sydney.

Tangential, but also remember that people can be idiots. I remember hearing—during the Bush/Kerry race— someone say they were voting for Bush, because unlike Kerry, Bush had actually gone to Vietnam and put himself in danger. People are not tethered to mere facts.

The people in favor of the status quo have always had the mainstream media to show them how popular their ideas are and to reinforce their views and support them emotionally. Now we have a distributed method of connecting people who’re marginalized while alone, but can organize.

I’m loathe to believe the ‘great man’ theory of history, but I could get behind a ‘key actor among sea of ready accomplices’ kind of theory. See also: 1 bad cop + 99 complacent cops = 100 bad cops.

Also it’s millions of times easier to coordinate with other like minded people in the age of social media. You’re not limited to whatever people you can find in your specific neighborhood or classes. It also creates national trends that don’t necessarily start as regional ones.
