I would like every software developer making a social or consumer product to think about the use case of escaping from domestic violence. This is a clear, moving example of how scary and difficult that process can be. Let's not make it harder or more dangerous!

TFW some sad dude anxious about his status in the manosphere is attempting to suggest you're not really a man, but is in fact pointing out how fucking awesome the peer group you get to hang with is

Companies that have commitments to accessibility cannot turn on shadow dom under these circumstances. As I have mentioned elsewhere, there are other reasons to use web components (with shadow off). But shadow dom is a nonstarter.

Have a closer look at that grid - and notice it is not filled with green checkmarks. SOME accessibility working, but lots broken, is still an unacceptable step down.

Because right now, when shadow dom is on, assistive technology is broken. This is unacceptable to any org with a commitment to accessibility (which, given the dominos decision, should be all of them).

How do you propose that assistive technology work, then, in the years between now & when the AOM is ready?

got the best, AKA worst, hackerone report ever. someone reported that an attacker website can figure out a person's IP address by *gaining local access to the person's machine*, installing a NodeJS webserver, and using the IP npm package to get the IP.

We both know that to fix it will require getting rid of most of their prolific editors. If they really wanted to, they could have done that years ago. They haven’t, which indicates it’s not really a priority.

It’s too bad they don’t find that diversity useful among their contributors.

Creativity is perhaps the most useful emergent property of well-managed diverse groups. Monocultures lead to narrow thinking.

Agreed. But an organization so hostile to women simply cannot be creative enough to do well here. They made their bed ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Mocking neurodivergent people for having scripts that help with social interactions and/or navigating complex things like setting boundaries is -3,725 points.

I just saw the news about Kamala Harris withdrawing and all I can think is I would love to live in a country where extremely qualified, brilliant black women could go further in presidential politics than otherwise mediocre white men with a pile of money.

Fuck you! Put all your analysis into the many way white supremacy and all its institutional power and privilege, including main stream media, targeted a Black woman, while elevating whiteness at every turn Classic and right out the playbook

Never ever tell yourself “my idea isn’t good enough.” The entire premise of Marmaduke is “what if a dog was big” and that shit has been going for 60 goddamn years

you’re not a bored gifted kid you’re someone who derives self worth from accomplishing clearly defined tasks under a hierarchical power structure and you’re struggling because you’ve been asked to self direct
