    Has editing died ?

    how about ugly and laboriously inane? as in the punctuation of this headline from The New Yorker: "Donald Trump, Jr.,’s Love for Russian Dirt" one americanisation that shits me to tears is the habit of placing punctuation extraneous to an original quote inside the bounds of the quotation marks. this is a perversion of the very idea of what a quote should be — an absolutely bloody verbatim testament! "Blib Blob Blab," she said, "is talking the world by storm." now, i ask you, what is the full stop doing inside the quote? why is the symbol for the end of a sentence, not at the end of the sentence? aaarrrggghh! and this habit is even more egregious in the age of computers. because now, if i want to highlight that fucking bullshit to google search it, i end up searching for "Blib Blob Blab," <--- look at it! just look at that gormless fucking freeloading comma FFS!

    What's on your mind?

    hmm... i'd never heard of this browser extension: AdNauseum "Built atop uBlock Origin, AdNauseam quietly clicks on every blocked ad, registering a visit on ad networks' databases. As the collected data gathered shows an omnivorous click-stream, user tracking, targeting and surveillance become futile." article: AdNauseam: Friend or Foe For Advertisers ?

    geez ppl, not a "mistake" — beyond being a throw away joke about medical-sounding acronyms.

    how crap is this government ?

    hehe that would be a nice bonus. but just inferring the fact of the moment the penny finally dropped is pretty sweet.

    keyboard shortcuts for 'select All' and 'Copy to clipboard', respectively. you can even just hold Ctrl while you quickly tap 'a' then 'c' (just make sure the cursor is inside the post first). sometimes, i'll make a temp copy of my post in this way, then continue to make a royal mess of it, and then just Ctrl+A and Ctrl+V (ie. paste) to revert to my "save"

    did he know that she is half black? because she's just your garden variety dark skinned English royal, right? the whole country is very aware of it. media coverage has largely been devoid of the veiled racism you might have seen a couple of decades ago, and furthermore has been vocal in hailing the marriage as a celebration of diversity. (and theyre probably extra incentivised to do so given the xenophobia brexit has stirred up). he knew it as a citizen, plus he worked for the beeb. "did he know"... 0_o i couldnt be bothered searching myriad examples, so here's just two recent stories reported in our country: 2 May Meghan Markle's baby a symbol of hope for diverse Britain and a target for racist trolls 5 may British Royals launch social media protocols after trolling of Meghan Markle and Kate both preceding Danny's monkey moment

    can you tease this out a bit? i am obviously not getting it. the channel partner is a reseller of their hardware? if the cost they pay is low, why is their margin so small?
