The Chase case is a terrible example for several reasons laid out here: https://www.documentcloud.org/documents/24396727-kermit-roosevelt-amicus?responsive=1&title=1

That's an amicus brief for this case, filed with the Supreme Court by the great-great-grandson of Teddy Roosevelt, a historian who spends a great deal of time explaining the full context of the fourteenth from actual historical record and case law, including (and excoriating) Chase.

A lawyer and commentator for Lawfare declared it the best of the briefs he's seen, and he cited other excellent ones as well that do not rely on Chase.

It's 54 pages, so not for the timid, but I found it a fascinating read and anyone wanting to know the actual history will as well.

binaryphile,

I'm just calling it American History X from now on.

This is amazing. Cryptography is truly the sorcery of our age.

FIFA suspends Spain soccer federation president Luis Rubiales for 90 days after World Cup win kiss (apnews.com)

GENEVA (AP) — FIFA suspended Spanish soccer federation president Luis Rubiales on Saturday while its disciplinary committee investigates his conduct at the Women’s World Cup final, which included kissing player Jenni Hermoso on the lips after Spain’s victory.

binaryphile,

A slap on the wrist just confirms FIFA's complicity.

Let's be real, in the US there's only an enforcement system, not a justice system.

Don't have experience with this but saw it recently -- it's open source, but not activitypub: https://codidact.com/

binaryphile,

This conveniently ignores that Trump's situation is predicated on actual behavior during an actual honest-to-goodness insurrection (yes, it has been adjudicated an insurrection many times at this point, see Jan 6 convictions). He publicly and directly addressed the terrorist group Proud Boys in televised remarks, the group at the heart of the insurrection, whose leaders are now jailed for it, calling them to attention to "stand by". No one doubts he failed his constitutional duty to protect the transfer of power. He disavows it to this day! When they invaded the capitol in an insurrection, that made it a lot harder for some other presidential candidate to come to the table with the same resume for being barred from the ballot. If I were any candidate in the future and the bar were this high, I'd rest easy every day of the week.

GTFO with this slippery slope bullshit.

binaryphile,

I would suggest camping out on https://www.boardgamegeek.com/ and seeing whether anything tickles your fancy in the suitable genre and weight category. Advanced search, or the genre-specific rankings are very helpful.

Many folks make geeklists that address questions such as yours as well.

binaryphile,

Musk fighting at-will employment now. How socialist of him. /s

A person is lucky to do one thing that affects a huge number of people's lives for the better, and even luckier if they know what it was and have been appreciated for it. Well done, Bram.

Threads is rolling out its Following feed (www.theverge.com)

Threads, Instagram’s messaging app, has added a new Following feed that shows posts only from accounts that a user follows. This was a highly requested feature from users. To access the Following feed, users tap the home icon or Threads logo at the top of the app. However, when reopening the app, it reverts back to the default...

Elon announced he was changing Twitters name to better reflect the core values of the company. Twitter is now to become "X Æ A-1488".

binaryphile,

If you have a Mastodon account as well, it has the bookmark feature, so in a pinch I can bookmark by boosting and then switching to my Masto account and bookmarking it there. You just need to follow your kbin account from your Masto account.

Trump Promotes Threatening Video: 'We Are Going to Do Things to You That Have Never Been Done Before' (www.thenewcivilrightsmovement.com)

Overnight Donald Trump promoted a video featuring an extreme close-up photo of his face in black and white, and audio of him making an obvious threat: “If you f— around with us, if you do something bad to us, we are going to do things to you that have never been done before.” Trump “retruthed” […]

binaryphile,

I'm of the opinion that any rapist should have that permanently affixed to their name whenever mentioned: "Rapist Donald Trump".

binaryphile,

That's incorrect. AA is explicitly spiritual, not affiliated with any religion. Everyone gets to choose their own path, there is no endorsed religion.

binaryphile,

Any dictionary will help you with the difference between the two.

binaryphile,

Rest assured, it'll be a slew of LLM output tweaked by unpaid interns this time. That's what this is about.

binaryphile,

To be fair, they've got the killed-or-injured-by-a-software-driven-vehicle market virtually cornered.

binaryphile,

That really doesn't need to be known, we could tell just from average daily active user counts. If those weren't provided, that's a big red flag on the rest of their numbers because there's no reason not to include those numbers. Active users is the most accurate measure. They might reasonably choose to hype the signups number, but if everyone wants to know actives and it's not provided, that's Meta choosing to hide the information. Not a confident move.
