The reddit discussion thread with over 1000 comments relating to The Guardian's decent, but still pandering or conservative article about Liam Stacey. Ridiculous that this guy is going to jail in a first world country like the UK. #politics #reddit #outrage #discussion #debate #social #media #twitter #news #stupidity #lemmings #sheeple #democracy #failure #blind #troll #web #vulgar #uk #pub

Comment thread encompasses all that is stupid with people and companies. As one of the comments says, "everyone fancies themselves as a hipster". You can't be using Instagram or Hipstamatic and claim you're too hip for Facebook. #hipstamatic #instagram #Facebook #sheeple #lemmings #reddit #discussion #stupidity #society #acquisition #pub

Ars Technica started this discussion. Of course they turned douchey and less than a week later went with the "whitelist sites you like" as if doing that is somehow morally just. Blocking ads only on sites you don't give two shits about is a good thing or something? Yes, yes, I'm pulling some red herrings and/or straw-manning here :P #discussion #adblock #advertising #web #douche #hypocrisy #elitism #double #standards #tech #ethics #pub

"This article includes one of the most misleading statistics concerning higher education: "People with bachelor's degrees... still earn an average of about $1.2M more than high school graduates over a 40-year career". Yes, there is a correlation between higher education and higher salaries -- no, this does not imply causation!" #discussion #college #formal_education #miconception #statistics #elitism #bullshit #pub

Podcaster says UTM/extra url parameters for tracking are bad. This guy, Brett, says "I did it because adding that extra stuff to the URL lets me track, over time, my conversion rate for that link. Now, I know lots of cranky web nerds recoil in horror at the mere mention of phrases like “conversion rates”, but some of us are running real businesses and have learned not to throw the marketing baby out with the douchebag bathwater." #Hmm #discussion #affiliate_marketing #butthurt #status_quo #crusade #blog_posts #pub
