top Boo! The House Majority PAC Is Watching You
Whoop-tee shit! It's a stupid and desperate strategy precisely because most people will react as you did but nobody is trying to threaten or intimidate you, though they may be trying to shame or coerce you into engaging with your friends and neighbours in order to encourage them to engage in the political system. I think they are frustrated and grasping at straws because political discourse in the US has deteriorated to such an extent that the process has become mostly dysfunctional.

top College Grads Create Fake Tesla Commercial That Elon Musk Loves
'Self made' is a myth, all of them had to first develop strong and binding connections with sources of capital, influence and discreet knowledge not their own. It is as much, and more in most cases, the cultivation of these relationships as it is their talents and vision that make for success.

top Slashdot Tries Something New; Audience Responds!
For me better implies an increase in utility. Current /. has a very high utility quotient indicating that a complete redesign is unnecessary and a few tweaks here and there would suffice. So why do it? Because some people are trying to justify their existence and insure their own niche by pandering to the money bags with a 'vision' to attract an greater more diverse audience and redefining the environment in which they exist. OR The money bags gave them the directive to increase the views and they are just responding to the pressure the only way they know how.
