Given their marketing: wtf is up with Pringles cans having plastic lids?

All these "most expensive drug ever" headlines about the new SMA drug should say:

1. Amazing scientific breakthrough - 1st systemic viral vectored gene replacement therapy

2. One-time treatment for a formerly fatal disease

3. Lower lifetime cost than standard of care

Just some things that would never work without the EU. RoHS outlawed dangerous chemicals & world has followed us. GDPR is the world's most advanced privacy regime. And practically: FREE ROAMING & FREE MOVEMENT!

Just had an email telling me about BAE’s new CSR report... weirdly can’t see a section about selling machines of death to oppressive regimes. Must have missed a bit.

CVE-2019-7780: Simply thinking about the contents of a specially-crafted PDF allows remote code execution.

The conversation with Todd from Purism was completely unproductive in my mind. In his view, there are only two possible options for moderation:

β€’ Become a complete censorship machine with a slippery slope of who can or cannot speak

β€’ Go by the jurisdiction users are in, hiding content illegal in certain jurisdictions and then removing content illegal in the poster's jurisdiction, for example a Chinese user's dissent against the Chinese gov't would be removed.

There are two problems that I brought up that, being that:

β€’ Purism would be participating in the injustices of those countries

β€’ Legal but harmful content would still be allowed, thus spreading harm.

I felt completely ignored when trying to get this across to him, especially that last bit. I also tried explaining to him that a slippery slope does not exist when you have set principles that you stick to within rules, but that completely flew over his head. It also ended with him basically telling me to solve the problem with a solution that works for every country everywhere and then get back to him. So, the block & boycott of Purism continues.
