Just watching some videos about feminism and I'm just thinking: "how fucking nutty are these people really?!"

Too drunk right now to write about the recent developments in Mozilla's adoption of "the big bad patriarchy and meritocracy" (and I don't have the password database mirrored on my recently unfucked WanBLowS 10 desktop yet so I've no idea how to authenticate to devRant on it yet) but I'll try to get it out there by tomorrow 🙂

Simply put, Mozilla.. I like you regardless of the whole Mr. Robot crap from earlier, and I'm sure you've got your heart in the right place.. although I'm using Brave nowadays - a creation from the board member you've shunned over this whole PC shit, Brandon Eich. But let me tell you this, Mozilla. Enough is enough. Don't be fucking idiots.

    Did you now about the research hoax on dog rape culture? Trolls got a major research magazine to publish it and praise it. That was absolutely hilarious.

    @JKyll let me see that real quick about H3H3's McDonald's feminism video :3

    @JKyll It wasn't the only hoax paper. There are scientists who published several fake papers to demonstrate that some scientific journals will publish articles with similar ideological base as theirs and will not conduct a research to verify the writers/sources/findings.

    Oooo, someone actually downvoted this!! 🤣
    Fuck, it's even permeated into devRant!!!

    If I found a company or project, I will include in the articles of association a *very* limited list of reasons a founder or senior leader can be removed.
    * Their well-documented death, proved by a death certificate.
    * Their own express, written, witnessed, freely-given, sworn consent.
    * A criminal conviction of fraud or theft against the organisation itself.

    I would intend to protect even Hans Reiser.

    @d4ng3r0u5 that's how it should be.. no ambiguity, just justice based on the impact on the organization itself.

    @Condor doesn't surprise me I've had quite some interactions with she minded people here. Sucks tho, I still advocate for a "snowflake" filter on devrant where if our rant could upset the easily offended they can filter it out, something like a parental control but for bigger children.

    @d4ng3r0u5 well in case of Reiser, it's not probable that he'll ever leave prison alive. Since you don't have internet access in prison, he couldn't fulfill any useful role in a dev project anyway.

    @Fast-Nop that kinda sucks though.. ReiserFS - while it doesn't suit my stack - looks pretty useful. I genuinely find it saddening how crimes can affect merit. Murdering your wife (from my limited memory on the case) is definitely a wrong thing to do.. but the merit that's lost to it is real. The guy's a genius, shouldn't we work to unravel the cause and work towards rehabilitation?

    @Condor I don't think that a file system can make up for murder, and I also think it's a good idea not to unleash convicted murderers onto the general population ever again.

    @Fast-Nop @Condor
    It's a question of ethics. Oddly enough, it reminds me the pardon the Nazi scientists got after WWII and joined the Allied Countries.
    So, do you want a computer genious to work for your cause/company even though he has commited a heinous crime? If so, under what circumstances will you take him? And how will your choice reflect to the rest of the society?

    welcome to devrant!

    I'll take a heaping scoop of elitism, hold the emotional intelligence.

    @Qaldim if politics and looming war come into play, there are no ethics besides "success creates might, and might creates right". The winner will write history anyway.

    @Qaldim @Fast-Nop crimes always have a cause. I can't speak for murder, but years ago I myself have been convicted for death threats. In reality I've gotten enraged over my (at the time) girlfriend getting isolated.. uproar over another girl getting an overdose on some kind of over-the-counter medicine.. can't remember the name of it.

    Allow me to sketch my "violent crime".

    I've been in psychiatric institutions for the majority of my childhood. At the time I got into a crisis unit for a suicide attempt by strangling myself. During that evening, one of the girls attempted suicide with medicine. Girl got escorted to IC, the entire unit got into an uproar. I wanted to run away, only held back by the girl that was at the time my girlfriend. Got back, partially calmed down by her. I can't remember the whole story at this point but one of us got enraged and locked down.. from one thing came the other - love sure is a strange thing... She got locked into her room, and wanted to hang herself. I got enraged and got carried away into an isolation cell.. which I didn't realize at the time would be for 2 weeks.. an inhumane act. The psychiatrist that pushed that verdict, out of a rage I told her that I'd follow her throughout her entire life until she wish she'd never been born. That was the death threat.

    At the time I acted out of rage.. and if it'd just remain like that, I'd have left it. Now I think of that bitch just like my father. I'd kill her on the spot if I were to ever meet her again. Her act of locking me into isolation for 2 weeks, and then sentencing me to youth jail for 2 years over a fucking rage was inhumane. It dehumanized me. That's the reason, the cause. That's the thing that should be resolved in crime cases. Every case has a reason, and sometimes the crime isn't even a crime to begin with.. is acting out of a rage supposed to be a crime?!

    @Condor phew, tough story. But, yes, people who actually do rage kill other people should not get the chance to kill the next one, and locking them up for life achieves that.
  • 3
    @Fast-Nop Who knows? I've got the power to kill many people as we speak, and I get enraged many times over trivial, solvable stuff that nonetheless shouldn't even be problems to begin with. Nonetheless, I don't kill any people, including myself.. because I realize how permanent and vile an act it is. Criminals aren't permanent criminals, and causes don't permeate for lifetime. I could kill my father upon first contact, does that mean that I go out to search for the fucker? Hell no, I've got better things to do.

    @Condor @Fast-Nop You had quite the hardships. People have been detained just for writing "I will kill you" messages over the Internet out of momentarily rage.
    Which puts me to the next point:
    Even a criminal who has served his punishment should be given another chance in life. We are lucky in that regard, since our main requirement is "to code". And this is what it should count in a given "open" organization, along with some basic manners.
  • 0
    @Qaldim Reiser's sentence is "to life". He may get another chance after serving that time, but that won't be in this life.
  • 2
    @Fast-Nop Even a life sentence shouldn't be more than 30 years. Again, someone who killed his wife isn't necessarily a serial killer. Every crime has a cause.. the US is the worst offender in disregarding that.. the incarceration rate in the US is pretty insane. Norway on the other hand.. they're focusing on rehabilitation. And they're definitely doing something right. Thoughty2 has a great video on that.

    @Fast-Nop I am not talking about Reiser specifically. By the time he would be out of jail, he should very very old anyway.
    It is for people who get lesser sentences and then face prejudice for their past sins.

    Also on the subject of PC/free speech, but unrelated to software development, I just read in the paper that the Christian bakers in the "gay cake case" (Belfast, Northern Ireland) have won their appeal.

    The ruling was that the bakers didn't discriminate on the grounds of the activist's own orientation- they would have refused to make a "support gay marriage" cake for any customer.

    @Qaldim prejudice is an issue in itself, but it's different when regularly violating the law earns a sentence that's more towards the upper bound. That's not prejudice, that's the notion that the previous warning shots havn't been impressive enough.

    @Fast-Nop @Condor I think it should be just like art, separate it from the artist. I even enjoy some really SJW'ish movies when they are good.

    @JKyll

    snowflake filter ahahhhaahah!!! def needed everywhere! But those who need it will just turn it off like safe browse then still complain. They should have AI analyze their bitching and enable it permanently if they cross a certain threshold.

    @rsync I know right, I think devrant should give it a shot and add the "snowflake" filter
