Yeah this emergent behavior stuff is fascinating. I like watching the dumb bastard fish swim in circles before they get smart.

This is really impressive considering the lines of code. I like the 'F' interface too. And my fish swim way faster on desktop. Also my kid says "that's amazing" and "how cute".

So is the skipping/redrawing I'm seeing happen for each new generation? It's distracting but maybe it needs to be there.

Thanks OP, good suggestions. We'll switch out these "subreddits" for "subs". (magnora I added this to the list).

Cool I guess you hadn't seen this. It's Baphomet bigger than shit with some of the top elites in attendance. It really fuels the "elites are occultist" theory for me.

Branding issue - Saidit cookie: reddit_session. by RavAshi in SaidIt

I have always tried to get the internal tracking going, to make the sub traffic stats page work. I don't think it's working, but none of it is disabled intentionally as of now.

Alright, I'm convinced. You're right, people do go through their cookies.

So we can just change all 3 of those instances (adding the line to development.update), then do 'make ini' right?

Yes, and then a reddit-restart. Also make sure your entry to development.update gets put in the [DEFAULT] section. There's only like 3 or 4 sections but it has to be right.

Also, I think this is going to log everyone out. Writing a cookie migration script is possible, but that kills the 15m approach.

There's no voting tinkering going on. If votes are being lost there's a huge bug somewhere.

Good sleuthing on this one. I'd say that the names of these cookies are not user facing, so this is less of a branding issue and more of a philosophical issue.

We're clearly a reddit clone and give reddit credit, so what's the point of removing all traces of the word "reddit"? Do we also need to rename our database which is named reddit? Another argument against is that changing these cookie names could have unanticipated consequences, like RES and/or the reddit mobile app (which we have no current plans to use) might be looking for these cookies by name.

So I could go either way on this one, but there are never ending mentions of reddit everywhere and I wonder about the practical value of changing them.

If we change this one, we should also change

admin_cookie = reddit_admin

Are High Taxes on Cigarettes Fair? by doubleblog in PublicPolicy

[–]d3rr 2 insightful - 1 funny2 insightful - 0 funny3 insightful - 1 funny -  (0 children)

it's a tax on people that makes bad choices, mostly due to low education and lack of information

Yep, and statistically speaking these folks are overwhelmingly poor/low income

I respect your position but I don't think the government has any responsibility or right to enforce morality/good decision making. Taken to an extreme, the government would also have to ban alcohol and fast food.

Sure cancer is a burden on health care, but so is heart disease.

I believe this got created by installing the Reddit test data very early in our development, since it was created by user "reddit". It might have a special purpose but I'm not aware of it actually being used. Haven't particularly looked into it though, there's a lot of redditisms added through the years. Similarly there's /s/frontpage
