    Just quit it, anon. Put it and hn algolia into your device's blocklist. Unsubscribe from hackernewsletters. Use the anti-procrastination setting on HN that limits your time.
    I used to be like you. But I realized
    1. Too many larpers. As I attained more expertise in my field, I realized a lot of people over there don't know what they're talking about. They just know how to write their BS in such a way to attract upvotes.
    2. You can't even argue or correct people. Because quite a few of them abuse the flag feature. I just said frick it after I got flagged the last time.

      Absolutely fricking horrible idea is actually a very good idea. There's nothing inherently wrong with living in a pod and being fed liquid food via an umbilical tube, in fact this could be a great service offering. With all the time freed up on cooking and having a life a 10x developer could create even more Javascript frameworks.

    Everyone automatically adapts their communication to fit the audience, place, time, and medium.
    I could communicate the same idea in each of these ways:
    >one-on-one in-person conversation
    >in-person presentation to a group
    >zoom call with many people
    >zoom call with one person
    >phone call
    >voice note

    >text message
    >slack message
    >forum post
    >hacker news

      It's called code switching and it's a normal thing everyone does in some form.

        Yep, it's over. A lot of the active users now are just morons spamming the same low-effort anti-capitalist comments everywhere they can and not submitting anything interesting about technology. You can actually see the influx on the HN user count graph, though I don't know what triggered it. And you can tell they come from Reddit by their phrasing (plus the fact that some of them think that green username = mod).

    Unironically, but because a lot redditors migrated to HN and bring with them their culture there. It's like illegal immigrants and semi-legal migrants who don't try to assimilate and enforce their way on natives. Literally nobody bothered to gatekeep them or at least bully into a proper behavior. If someone would try to correct their behavior, mods would then [deleted] them. Now it's just basically Reddit 2.0.

    Formally, ordinals start at zero [0]. We owe their latest definition to Von Neumann, but former (technical) definitions were similar.

    --

    [0] This is meta-meta-contrarianism.

    - The layman counts from one

    - The uptight programmer counts from zero, because he thinks Dijkstra said so [1].

    - The meta-contrarian (which I used to be) says frick it, ordinals start at one [0].

    - The meta-meta-contrarian reads Von Neumann[1], realizes he was formally wrong, and goes one step further in pedanticity, back to zero [0].

      Parodies are usually funny because they're true. The citations in HN comments are some of the most valuable contributions to the site.

      This whole post is depressing. Far from lighthearted fun, these comments all have an undercurrent of hostility ("wannabe-academic"). The mosaic formed by these comments imply pg has harmed the world by creating HN. But that couldn't be further from the truth.

      Imagine where you'd be forced to go if HN didn't exist, for example.

      I don't even comment, I just hate how confident they are when spewing bullshit they know nothing about, especially when it concerns anything that isn't programming. I also hate their fricking obnoxious way of expressing their shitty opinions. Every sentence needs to have the word zeitgeist, or onerous, or insidious, or je ne sais quoi. They talk like absolute snobs who love huffing their own farts, all while being completely clueless about the subject they're babbling about.

    Professional "hacker" and "programmer" mindsets tend to align with sociopatic/autistic part of the spectrum. So they often less social and more rational which results in what you see. Just bear with it and go for technical discussions instead of emotional ones. It'll go way better.

    HN is a cult to shill shitty startups. This helps the ~~*VCs*~~ steal billions of fake dollars from the economy with their ponzi schemes and rent seeking.

    The majority of commenters on HN cannot actually code, and the small percent who can code are not creating anything interesting or worthwhile, such as leading open source projects.
    But how can someone who can't code, who wants to suck up to the ~~*VCs*~~ and get into the rich boys club (or believe they are grinding leetcode enough to do it)?

    They mimic the same passive aggressive tone, and the same herd-mentality libtard mindset and parrot the stupidest political safe opinions of the Founder Elites whom they worship, and gush praise on the most moronic and flawed and myopic tech fads. "Pick me, pick me, let me join your Founders Club and get some crumbs from the table of the VCs."
