    Using the no-fly list and other such secret "potential terrorist" lists as a means to restrict access to guns is completely the wrong approach to gun control. The people on these lists have not committed any crime, they are "suspected" terrorists, which could mean anything, and you can be absolutely certain that these lists are mostly brown-skinned muslims that fit the mental image of "terrorist", which is a textbook example of systemic racism. If they were criminals or terrorists, well then why not arrest them?

    I remember a time after 9/11 when the no-fly list was seen as Orwellian and reprehensible by the left, and now Murphy's filibuster just cements its legitimacy. You know how many on the no-fly list have committed mass shootings? Zero. Mateen was not on the watchlist at the time he purchased his guns, so it would not have done anything to prevent the tragedy in Orlando.

    If I could offer an alternative, why not ban people convicted of domestic violence from purchasing guns? The correlation there is real, and I guarantee you would see a decrease in gun deaths. Very disappointing to see Congress rally around gun control for once, only to push for such a backward policy solution.

    Exactly! I back out of that faster than if they pulled a gun on me.

    Icons and buttons instead of menus - I get it, okay? I'm sure a million focus groups on retarded monkeys have conclusively shown that we are just meat with eyes and don't like reading actual words, but sweet lord above it is so damn obtuse. Usually it isn't a big deal, I know what a magnifying glass represents, or a house icon, but sometimes it's like I'm trying to read hieroglyphics. Snapchat is the worst offender I've seen so far. A circle with three smaller circles arranged in a triangle inside it? A rectangle with arrows for edges and a smiley face inside? Are you fucking kidding me? What UX asshole comes up with this, the zodiac killer?

    It gets worse with touchscreen apps, because the focus is on being minimalist to the extreme. What will happen when I touch this button? No way to find out until I touch it. Oh you touched too long? That does something else. Woops a daisy, you moved your finger two microns to the left while touching, that counts as a swipe, now you're somewhere else. The cutesy but confusing model makes me feel like I'm trying to decipher the anyikythera mechanism for kindergartners.

    It was a comment thread in /r/truereddit, people were griping about stories being censored on reddit and were talking about alternatives, and someone mentioned snapzu. I'd never heard of it, but then a guy commented with some invite codes so I figured I'd check it out.

    Noticed that as well when I signed up, but didn't really give it a second thought since I'm a dude I guess.
