I've changed the world several times. One day in 2012 you woke up and didn't even notice what I did that affected you so profoundly. You heard it from every media outlet though during the whole day. :)

Media used to be less biased until Ronald Reagan canceled laws that required fair representation of opinions. Then it all quickly slid downhill. Couple that with the fact that people don't like to pay for credible reporting and we are where we are.

Well, my reduction in time was mainly because of change of job, nothing to do with OT.

Some people have weird trigger reactions, some go crazy when asked about the androsynth, some attack you when you ask why the color of their bridge changed, and some leave a gaming forum because of BS discussions about politics.
We had the same in the SC mailing group in 1999 and then I think we decided not to discuss politics there anymore.

Hey, I've been thinking... maybe Trump won't be such a bad president after all.

Attention interloper, your opinion does not match any known hierarchy identification codes, and is thus deemed to be... independent. This is not permissible. Please remain here. An Ur-Quan liquidation vessel is on its way to censor your thought. Disobedience... will be punished.
