Appears to be limited to 10 results. The same searches for other users have at most 10 results. Perhaps there is intended to be some paging feature.

By adding &count={number} , i can get a broken "prev" button to show on the page, for n>0 https://saidit.net/s/programming/search?q=author%3Afschmidt&restrict_sr=on&sort=new&t=all&count=1 , but cannot get more than 10 results. Clicking the "prev" button gives an idea to try.

I can add &after=t5_{id} , for some id returned in the search results, and get fewer results, but can't get it to actually show anything not in the original 10 results https://saidit.net/s/programming/search?q=author%3Afschmidt&restrict_sr=on&sort=new&t=all&after=t5_8cdb

In summary, yes, this seems to be broken. The code for Saidit is open source. From a link at the bottom of Saidit: https://github.com/libertysoft3/saidit .

You are thinking of the question "have you stopped beating your wife", which is quite a neat example because if answered accurately with the word "no" by someone who has never beat their wife, is interpreted by the casual listener as an admission of wife beating.

I'm not sure to what extent her question qualifies as a leading question. Certainly it implies an opinion on the part of an asker, and failing to answer it at all conveys something to the listener!

It's probably true that the circle back lady was leaving already, rather than leaving in response to that question, as the title might lead people to believe. However, it seems like a valid question, and one which wouldn't get through official vetting. The state's pretence of being open to questions , put forth by an honest media who attempt to convey what's on the mind of the general public, is highly objectionable. This kind of clickbait is also objectionable, but since they can't actually get an answer from the state, seems relatable.

Tactically, a parade is a pointless, worthless thing - a waste of time and money. The purpose of a parade is for show, for morale, pride etc - both that of the troops and the civillians watching. Looking cool helps towards that goal. Admittedly, fancy uniforms might seem a bit silly unless you know to expect them. Having the tanks painted gold would look silly to me, and it's the same kind of idea. They do paint planes fancy colours for air shows though. Do you object to that?

I think that you may have been misled by the picture on that article, which I expect shows training for the parade. I imagine the intention is that the actual parade involves full dress uniform, but wearing full dress uniform for practice means things getting dirty and requiring cleaning, ironing etc. It's important to practice in the shoes that will be used on parade day to check people aren't going to get blisters, fall over etc, and polishing shoes is relatively straightforward.

Ha ha, but you really should add in curly braces and a semi colon. Maybe not strictly necessary, but if someone else comes along and puts another line on there, it's more obvious whether or not it's inside the loop.

Looking good in uniform is part of the appeal of becoming a soldier. Why take that away from people? It would be great if they got the boffins who invent weapons to invest some time in the problem. A lot of human effort has been invested in making trainers and hiking boots etc performant, and a lot of effort has gone into optimising the appearance of high heels, to great effect. I wonder what kind of performance could be acheived within certain aesthetic constraints?

I'm no expert. I have watched some internet videos about female bodybuilders. I understand they are sort of morphs of eachother, similar to how a bird is like a dinosaur, or how a human fingernail is like a horse's hoof. Whether they are "the same thing" is semantics.

AFAICT, Peter is an "old school" kind of liberal person who believes in free expression, open exchange of ideas, sunlight is the best disenfectant etcetera. Modern types who suspect that their ideas might get disinfected don't like that.

Just turn Alice into Bob, and Bob into Alice. Any criticism of Alice and Bob convention can then be punished by the full force of the state, payment providers, corporate media etc.
