Why is "Recent activity" replacing "Recent reviews"? I want to see the Recent reviews from those I've subscribed to, not every single like, which I could already see if I wanted to under "Recently rated".
This is a really bad move. You are removing functionality, for no good reason. Why do sites like Stumbleupon feel compelled to mess with their core functionality like this? Muppets.
"The online encyclopedia, knowledge base, social networking site, essay repository, blog, search engine, news aggregator, dessert wax and floor topping Wikipedia has reached its three millionth article and ceased all editing.
Palo Alto Research Center reported that only 1% of edits by random users were kept. "They were all unspeakable shit," said burnt-out administrator WikiFiddler451. "All of them. No, I'm not exaggerating. Go to Special:Newpages and read a day's entries some time. You'll start by deleting the whole database, before you get onto plotting the doom of humanity. Christ, why go on?""
"This is a tribute to the nice guys. The nice guys that finish last, that never become more than friends, that endure hours of whining and bitching about what assholes guys are, while disproving the very point. This is dedicated to those guys who always provide a shoulder to lean on but restrain themselves to tentative hugs."
"Nice Guys"(TM) are the bane of internet dating sites, and should be shot on sight to put them out of their misery.
Piss off, Xobni.
"The geniuses who wrote Texas' gay marriage ban may have accidentally banned all marriage in the state, according to one Houston lawyer. Subsection B of the ban, a constitutional amendment ratified in 2005, states, "This state...may not create or recognize any legal status identical or similar to marriage." The intent was to prevent even civil unions for gay couples--but it doesn't actually specify the "gay" part."
Rupert Murdoch's News Corp wants to 'deindex' its material from Google and charge Microsoft's Bing to include it. Bad idea for all but Microsoft, and especially bad for web users. Is this another step away from Net Neutrality towards a fragmented internet?
I've seen a tree being set on fire by electric power lines, but the tree was damp from rain so didn't go up as dramatically as this.
The fire department turned up after 10 minutes, stood around and looked at it for 5 minutes, then drove away.
"Today in my psychology class, we were playing Jeopardy to prepare for our test. One of the answers that came up was "Observes children playing on a playground." Without missing a beat some kid shouted out "What is a registered sex offender!" "
MLIA is great.
20% VAT rate? No thanks, Davey. VAT is a horrible regressive tax and is already far too high.
Nice leaflet. I suspect it's not exactly pitched right for a Christian audience, but it made me smile nonetheless.
"A New York-based anarchist has been arrested by the FBI and charged with hindering prosecution after he allegedly used the social networking site Twitter to help protesters at the G20 summit in Pittsburgh evade the police... They said they also took away anarchist books and pictures of Marx and Lenin."
Yeaah!!! Stop those evil communists protesting! Confiscate those pictures of Marx!
""Roman Polanski raped a child. Let's just start right there, because that's the detail that tends to get neglected," wrote feminist and author Kate Harding in an impassioned column in Salon. That article then went viral across the internet, gaining tens of thousands of page views and seeming to herald the reaction to come."
"You see, wire telegraph is a kind of a very, very long cat. You pull his tail in New York and his head is meowing in Los Angeles. And radio operates exactly the same way: you send signals here, they receive them there. The only difference is that there is no cat."
Albert Einstein, when asked to describe radio
America didn't get the Olympics. How sad.
Google launches a direct competitor to Stumbleupon.
Interesting ranty lefty feminist.
Wtf is this shit doing on Stumbleupon?
