I spend a lot of time reading HN I don't see much of this at all. Even when such posts do show up, the comments are surprisingly sane, non-inflammatory, and balanced with people from opposing camps engaging in civil discussion. It's rather impressive actually, I don't think I've seen anywhere else on the internet that handles the topic quite as well.
This fucking thread
This is so damn accurate it hurts
C++ to Python Transpiler In Production, or How We Lost $900 Million on a Dumb Idea, and Why We'd Do it Again (Spoiler: It's Because We Have Innate Market Advantages that Allow Us To Maintain Our Circlejerking Ways With Nary a Consequence)
Well, HN sure is more feminist-friendly (or less hostile, if you will) than /g/. Hell, anything is.
That said, I DO see some increase in normie stupidity compared to the earlier years, especially since Graham stepped away (1) and Altman took over.
So all in all, if you're trying to hold middle ground, feminazi would call you and EEEEBIL straightciswhite oppressor, and /g/ would call you an SJW (also >>52680923)
(1) And I wonder if that had to do with Tiku interview and the resulting fallout ("What I didn't say"). It did coincide in terms of time.
Then again, PG himself kinda mellowed IMO. Which is sad, he used to deliver great pieces - don't think we'd see another "Beating the averages from him".
Any up-and-comers that might replace him, to watch?
White men need to stop being so privilaged and taking jobs from hard working woymn and negros.
Also cops are bad and we need to eradicate the niggers and homeless so we can build more high rise condos.
>tfw /g/ has taken the anti-feminism meme so far that they actually think HN is populated by SJWs
>guy worth 17 billion dollars
>lel but he's a cuck
yeah man if i had the choice of having a net worth of 17 billion dollars and having the respect of people on /g/ i would totally pick the latter.

I'm here on a H1B and I deserve to be a US citizen because I raped a white girl last year and she had a kid. Also it's disgusting how immigrants are treated in this country.

Last time I made one of these it got posted on there and a bunch of people on hn got buttblasted by the comments. Reality is hard to cope with when they live in the little sf bubble

i think that headline is accurate though. lisp is nature; it's the natural result of a recursive descent approach to parsing empirical languages. call it 'god' if you want, but if you don't respect the elegance that lisp established in our field, then you don't really deserve to call yourself a programmer.
show HN: how I spent 180 dollars in electricity traning a neural network on a GPU to generate random text when I could have learned my algorithms and have used a markov chain
>Well, HN sure is more feminist-friendly (or less hostile, if you will) than /g/. Hell, anything is.
>Dear /g/, I see you've yet to accept some code of conduct or whatever shit, pls flamewar now.
the only code of conduct, that is acceptable, is
1) contribute useful code
2) see 1
noone *sane* cares if the person that just created a PR, is a man, woman, homo, nigger or whatever else slang that was born on tumblr and probably won't be interested in it ever
the need of those people to say loudly what they (think) are and call for special treatment is just asking for an unnecessary drama that 98% of the community never wants/ignores/..

Yep, the place where you are shadow-banned, downvoted, and IP-shadowbanned for having a differing opinion is less hostile.
HN is also the place that removes posts from the front-page and cherry-picks certain articles to place there.
