    1. Are you two serious? Instead of advocating to fix this bug you go out of your way to post another bug report to advocate the devs to dig in their heels?! How about standardizing some devastating needed questions in the technology industry: 1. How does this help productive members of society? 2. Does this serve a useful purpose? 3. Should I be doing this? 4. Have I had a full, non-interrupted, rational conversation with multiple people who disagrees to help determine if I have objectively determined my answers to the first three questions?

    1. But the last question, What of it?, requires considerable restraint on the part of the reader. It is here that the situationwe described earlier may occur-namely, the situation in whichthe reader says, "I cannot fault the author's conclusions, butI nevertheless disagree with them." This comes about, of course,because of the prejudgments that the reader is likely to haveconcerning the author's approach and his conclusions.

      How to protect against these sorts of outcomes? Relation to identity and cognitive biases?

    1. In essentials, unity; in non-essentials, liberty; in all things, charity (kindness). Now we may not even agree about what the essentials are, but the key, I think, is that last bit – in all things, charity. Hold a generous heart for all, whether they agree with you or disagree with you.

    1. I fail to understand how this is such a low priority. Code review is one of the most basic and critical portions of development lifecycle, and prior to discovery of this ticket I literally had to roll an entire other repository manager just to perform that correctly when I discovered entire directories of changes had been omitted from the Gitlab generated MR. We actually found that in order to get the change set fix to apply reliably, that it is required to add "?w=1" to the url even after updating the white space setting.

    1. In addition to specifying functions, programmers need to provide comments in the body of the functions. In fact, programmers usually do not write enough comments in their code.

      Programmers need to provide comments where the information one would write in a comment can't be conveyed in the code.

    1. Health Nerd. (2021, December 13). Accusing everyone you disagree with of being a shill for pharmaceutical companies is a very simple way to tell anyone with even the slightest insight that you have absolutely no idea what you’re talking about and no desire to do simple things to educate yourself [Tweet]. @GidMK. https://twitter.com/GidMK/status/1470287869168152576

    1. It can be hard to say what Punic art did ordid not do, for so much is lost. But the lack of evidence to the contrary impliesthat illustrating one’s persona as military in funerary and votive images anddedicated goods was rare in the West Phoenician diaspora

      Considering the Romans destroyed the city, they might have targeted military art especially. They might have wanted to show complete dominance by erasing all of Cathage's victories and key aspects.

    1. Do you prefer a different email validation gem? If so, open an issue with a brief explanation of how it differs from this gem. I'll add a link to it in this README.

    1. Q: can I use this speeder for peat Mose A: .noScriptDisplayLongText { display : none; } <style> .noScriptNotDisplayExpander { display : none; } .noScriptDisplayLongText { display : block; } </style> No, it will not do peat moss. There is no weight to that material. By David K. on September 4, 2018 See other answers Q: Can this drop spreader be used to spread peat moss? A: .noScriptDisplayLongText { display : none; } <style> .noScriptNotDisplayExpander { display : none; } .noScriptDisplayLongText { display : block; } </style> I think the opening is too small for peat.

A: .noScriptDisplayLongText { display : none; } <style> .noScriptNotDisplayExpander { display : none; } .noScriptDisplayLongText { display : block; } </style> I could not get it to.

      Strange. https://10bestranked.com/peat-moss-spreaders/ actually recommends this product for peat moss. Who is right?

    1. The reason we've avoided registering "Cinnamon" as a desktop name is that it opens up issues with many upstream apps that currently OnlyShowIn=Gnome or Gnome;Unity or just Unity. The relationship Mint has with Gnome and Ubuntu isn't genial enough that we could get them to add Cinnamon to their desktop files, so we would have to distribute and maintain separate duplicate .desktop files just for Cinnamon for these upstream packages.
    1. The question, 'What is library and information science?' does not elicit responses of the same internal conceptual coherence as similar inquiries as to the nature of other fields, e.g., 'What is chemistry?', 'What is economics?', 'What is medicine?' Each of those fields, though broad in scope, has clear ties to basic concerns of their field. [...] Neither LIS theory nor practice is perceived to be monolithic nor unified by a common literature or set of professional skills. Occasionally, LIS scholars (many of whom do not self-identify as members of an interreading LIS community, or prefer names other than LIS), attempt, but are unable, to find core concepts in common

    1. About #validate which fill attributes of the form, I think it's a problem of architecture and clarity. If you respect the Single Responsabilty Principle, you must to have two methods. This is wrong. SRP means your class does exactly one thing, which is reflected in a single public method. The more methods you expose, the less SRP you go.

    1. Where these systems most notably differ is in their units of volume. A US fluid ounce (fl oz), about 29.6 millilitres (ml), is slightly larger than the imperial fluid ounce (about 28.4 ml). However, as there are 16 US fl oz to a US pint and 20 imp fl oz per imperial pint, the imperial pint is about 20% larger. The same is true of quarts, gallons, etc.; six US gallons are a little less than five imperial gallons.

    1. Take a look at the slogans of some of the popular companies.

      Hmm, are these taglines or slogans? According to https://yourbusiness.azcentral.com/slogan-vs-tagline-12643.html:

      A tagline should represent your business, while a slogan represents a single product or is part of an advertising campaign

      it seems that these are more taglines than slogans.

    1. Specifically, it looks like the Iubenda Wordpress plugin has AddThis classified under Measurement (id 4). As a result, even though Iubenda itself classifies it under Experience enhancement (and shows it under that category in your cookie policy), if you give consent for that category (id 3), it will not enable the AddThis scripts

      Iubenda doesn't even always agree with itself about which category certain services should go under, further evidence that there's no single right way to classify it, supporting the idea that there should be a way to change it from the default, since every site has different needs.

    1. I enjoy dissent and debate among commenters, and criticism of my views is also always welcome; you are even free to call me an assclown, a dupe, a partisan ignoramus — whatever you like, as long as you don't insult other commenters.

    1. Stalling and friction are linked: efforts stalled when friction accumulated or when the fear of criticism led to no activity. Likewise, avoiding stalling by making a decision could result in friction when others disagreed.

    1. Given that marginalized groups frequently lack protection during disagreements, we often try to understand how to scaffold conflicts in a way that best protects these groups.

      scaffold conflicts in a way that best protects these groups.

    2. Though the presence of conflict in socially just design may seem like an impediment, it is actually a healthy sign that a project is tackling topics worthy of debate. This is especially true for marginalized people, who have “interests in asking questions [about power, oppression, and inequality], and dominant groups have interests in not hearing them” [3].

      conflict is a healthy sign that project is tackling topics worthy of debate.

    1. Normal aging is described as aging not accompanied by behavioral or cognitive dysfunctions associated with the cholinergic basal forebrain system

      I don't think that aging can be defined purely in terms of the cholinergic system.

    1. "science" which can teach us to do under all circumstances the things which will insure our happiness and success.

      Happiness has far too much variability to be considered scientific, in my opinion. It's all a matter of opinion and personal experience. Hence my disagreement with his "judgment not knowledge" bit.

    1. POLUS: What sort of an art is cookery? SOCRATES: Not an art at all, Polus.

      So maths is an art until it comes to the use of cooking? Not sure I agree, Socrates.
