"In the absence of agreement about its meaning, the term "social" is regarded as a fuzzy concept -Wikipedia. IMO though, "social" is now just a meaningless word that is used by corporations/ad agencies/old people who are just now jumping on the interweb bandwagon."
i find this really ignorant. and when did people start using wikipedia as a dictionary?
A loaded question is a question which contains a controversial or unjustified assumption, e.g., a presumption of guilt.
Aside from being a logical fallacy, such questions may be used as a rhetorical tool: the question attempts to limit direct replies to be those that serve the questioner's agenda.
This fallacy should be distinguished from that of begging the question, which offers a premise the plausibility of which depends on the truth of the proposition asked about, and which is often an implicit restatement of the proposition.
The term "loaded question" is sometimes used to refer to...
The problem with Facebook is that there are no limits. People just click like on anything that their friends support or gets advertised to them because they want to "support the cause" and rarely ever follow through on any sort of commitment.
as the world grows, and as technology becomes greater and greater, we will be able to develop this concept more strongly.
i know many other people feel the same way--this should be the focus of the internet right now. every generation has something it's known for--let this one be known for revolutionizing education as a whole.
that's my goal. i'm only 14 but i've spent most of my teen life, and expect to spend a great majority of my entire one, revolutionizing the realm of education and globalizing it in such ways I've described today.
This is a duplicate to it-shows-old-question-in-newest-tab (which was closed).
It happened yesterday for me too the same time as it did for the poster of that question.
After a few minutes it was working again. Now it happens again.
In newest quesions tab, questions from yesterday are displayed...
Since you wanted to know, I voted to close as not constructive because this is, at best, beating a dead horse: a cursory search would've answered your question, but you seem to reject previous discussions about this in what appears to be a thinly-veiled attempt to pimp your TEDx talk about your own answer to the question. — Mark Trapp3 hours ago
I feel he's trying to accuse me of promoting myself.
But I need confirmation of what exactly he's saying.
you can often see what action a moderator took (deletion/close being the most obvious), but often it might be an edit/comment (or a private message/suspension and a few other things but that's less obvious)
What can I do when getting “Sorry, we are no longer accepting questions/answers from this account”? (the answer is here, in this post)
I know this question may be asked before , but honestly i read the previous posts about the same topic.
And i don't k...
Hi guys. With regards to the question on the flag queue (meta.stackoverflow.com/q/133394/161198) I commented that it might be worth looking at adjusting the threshold for the ability to participate. Does any of you know whether this has been discussed to death? Would it be worth making it an actual suggestion? I couldn't find anything with regards to it.
@PopularDemand As I said in the comment, I have no clue what effect it would have (I don't know how many extra hands to help that would results in). But recently there have been quite a few comments here and there about the amount of flags. I might just suggest it if I think it out a bit more later on.
I guess someone could post hate speech, cover it up with an edit and then roll the edit back, just to eliminate valid flags? But rolling back bumps, so new users should then theoretically see the stuff and cast new flags. Or, possibly, nobody will see the slurs after this clever trickery, and therefore they won't flag, but then what was the point of putting it there in the first place?
It's been a while since I thought about the flag - rollback behavior; originally that was intended to prevent automatic deletion in response to vandalism. But flags have changed a lot since then; I'm not sure quite how it works now.
One of my coworkers was walking by my desk. They stopped, picked up my desk phone, and moved it about 2-3 feet out of my reach (to an adjoining empty desk). They looked at me, smiled, and said "Now you have more room on your desk!" Then they walked away.
I don't want to have to stand up to answer my phone =(
