What's an unethical experiment you want done just to see the results? by Gavin_Freedom in AskReddit

[–]_Hopped_ 2 points3 points  (0 children)

SPARTANs were just genetically selected, no in-utero editing. It is unclear if the SPARTAN-II alterations were genetic or chemical in nature.

People using the german flair and pretending to be german on r/Europe and beyond by npjprods in EuropeMeta

trying to surf off germany's current soft power

Wouldn't that be the more worrying thing? Other users judging a poster by their flag rather than their posts

circumvent it

Because it doesn't break any of the rules.

you can expect it to appear in the new queue eventually

And this isn't available for users to see anywhere! That's my frustration with y'all's actions: you're using an invisible rule book we can't see and banning us for breaking rules we can't see.

When we can't see the list of banned words, AM doesn't message us saying it's being held, etc. How are users supposed to interpret the situation?

setting a requirement that all mod stuff must have been dealt with before we are "allowed" to participate in the community is just a ridiculous suggestion

As is setting a requirement that users must wait for mods to get around to reviewing a queue before we are "allowed" to participate in the community is just a ridiculous suggestion

I reposted it because I couldn't see it and assumed it was because of a banned word - hence why I changed the title. Then I thought it was because it was a wikipedia link - hence why I submitted the photo through reddit. I messaged the /r/europe mod team and received no response after over an hour (still no reply FWIW).

I'll stay on my horse so long as there are unjust barriers in our way. Multiple mods are online and posting around the clock - if they can't moderate, then what are they doing as mods?

The Nordic languages with additional minor changes by Rikolan in europe

[–]_Hopped_ 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Not a dumb question at all! Depends what you mean by "Scots".

Some people will speak proper Scots as a language (Doric like I grew up with for example), some people will read Scots poetry (Robert Burns for example), and for some people it'll be more of a dialect of English (just using a few Scots words - lower-class Glaswegians are an example).

Then y'all need to better watch the queue, multiple hours waiting for the privilege of posting is shockingly poor community management.

Yeah, but they don't keep - that's my problem with them.

I'd settle for strawberries which don't go mushy 2 nanoseconds after being picked tbh.

JP Morgan: Brexit has already cost the UK far more than our contribution to the EU budget by chowieuk in ukpolitics

[–]_Hopped_ -12 points-11 points  (0 children)

It's going pretty well - investment is up and there has been no capital flight. JP Morgan made a foolish gamble, and will pay the price in not being in London - it is in their interest to foment dissent and try to screw Brexit up.

A reminder that JP Morgan are a biased party with a vested interest in Brexit not going well.
