Readium-css has an iOS testing app that you can download (link to it on their webpage). That’s really about all I could find to be honest.
I’ve only recently started to get into reading books. I know it may sound silly, but the only books I read growing up was required by school (which was a lot and a lot of important books were read). I tend to read more non-fiction since I don’t tend to use reading as escapism as much as I do education.
The other day I read an entire (small) book in a day, and it was a terrible book. It was called The Kingdom of Speech by Tom Wolfe. After reading it I looked at some reviews of it and saw that my sentiment was shared. The author did very little research and just goes about discrediting 150 years of scholarly research to arrive at his own conclusion. Additionally, there’s a strong sense that the author is upset with political correctness because when referring to an indigenous tribe, he will say the following:
“… the nati -er, indigenous - peoples…”
and it just rubbed me the wrong way entirely. He did this so frequently that it was really upsetting my reading. This book review is pretty short, but devastating: https://www.theguardian.com/books/2016/sep/08/the-kingdom-of-speech-by-tom-wolfe-review
I read the book because my spouse bought it on a whim some years ago, and I felt like it. Don’t recommend though haha. My next two books will be Mutual Aid and The Ice People.
Your contradiction was in fact, not a contradiction, but a thinly veiled attempt to feel correct. I think myself and many others agree that this was you overstepping. I reported the post once for violating three rules, and you call that report abuse? You could have just said that it didn’t break rules and atop there but I didn’t “abuse” anything. Its also not against the rules to downvote something I deem to be poor quality content.
Edit: blocked, given your history and other user experiences with you.
Yeah I agree that it’s starting to get a little pitchforky, but mostly, people are just sharing similar experiences with the mod - which is good, because a shared dialogue about a series of bad behavior helps to inform the community. As for using the voting buttons, that’s all well and good, yeah. Always vote.
On a larger scale, stack overflow has moderator elections: https://stackoverflow.com/election/13
Yeah there are a lot of challenges that need to be addressed. I’ve learned that stackoverflow has some form of democratic elections regarding mods which I thought was pretty cool. Also, Trump got elected through an electoral college designed to give fringe groups more power than they should have. Trump would have lost if America voted in a direct democracy model (e.g. popular vote).
Edit: I’m not going to downvote you for your opinions. We’re just discussing here, nothing you said was crazy
This is something that I’ve been echoing for quite a while now. Lots of people completely divided. We need marginal increases in privacy for the masses as opposed to extreme live changes for the few.
