Skeptics Would Like Media To Stop Calling Science Deniers 'Skeptics'
Yes constant questioning is at the heart of scientific inquiry however deliberate obfuscation of established science for political and economic objectives is not scepticism but subterfuge.
At 40, a person is ...
...the woman cutting what is left of your hair leans in and says, 'Hold still Dear, I'm going to do your ears now."
Ask Slashdot: Paying For Linux Support vs. Rolling Your Own?
Tis question is not exactly but largely analogous to the question : 'Do we self insure or purchase insurance'? The risk evaluation is complex and the answer is dependant on the a number of weighty factors not least of which is the amount of liquid assets available to address a catastrophic failure. Hire a risk analyst.
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.
Ask Slashdot: Dealing With an Unresponsive Manufacturer Who Doesn't Fix Bugs?
This is America! Be a good patriot/consumer and STFU! Corporation Banks and hedge funds are your betters and should be deferred to in all circumstances.
Did you use technology to get into mischief as a child?

Why the Moon's New Birthday Means the Earth Is Older Than We Thought
It's not hatred mate... It's pity mixed with dismay about the state of education and social disfucntion engendered in such beliefs all expressed as what would be seen as good natured ribbing if the mistake being pointed at was hmm lets say mistaking Paris, Texas for Paris, France.

Band Releases Album As Linux Kernel Module
We can only, for your sake, hope that this is a failed attempt at sarcasm. If not, get a pet, perhaps a low maintenance one.
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.
Darker Arctic Boosting Global Warming
To anyone that has been paying (not even very close) attention this is nothing new.
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.
