is this literally Dunning-Kruger: the community?
>>
>>61427149
it's the community where autists talk sanely for the first time after a miserable long day of work
>>
This is commercial technology forum, what do you expect? You think tech 'journalists' are actually smart? They are monkeys that only know BIG NUMBER GOOD, LITTLE NUMBER BAD.

You need to go elsewhere to find anyone that knows how to program or engineer.

You can learn a lot of things reading the comments here. It's the second coming of Slashdot in a lot of ways.

On the other hand, you have to watch yourself since any challenge to the leftist narrative on gender or race, explicit or implied, is grounds for immediate hellban.

That shouldn't matter too much since you're going there to talk about tech, not women and niggers.

I'm starting to think that everyone who namedrops the Dunning-Kruger effect is functionally retarded and worst affected by it.

Not sure but they're obnoxious as fuck. I remember reading the comments on a TempleOS article once and it was just 80% shitting on Terry.

>>61427149
It used to be better but now it's basically full of "idea" guys. None of them can program and they've never been successful at anything in their entire lives but they've read a bunch of management books and consider themselves the next Steve Jobs.

Hopefully the VC bubble bursts and they all starve.

That might have been true several years ago but it sure as fuck isn't now.

Piss poor bait mate.

They are mostly entry-level web developers that went through boot camps or are "self-taught" and spend their days working for the loose change their uber meets pet grooming startup could wrangle out of VCs.

The community there is changing rapidly and its quickly becoming neo-reddit.

There are LOTS of non-technical posts there now, most of which are SJW. They hell ban anyone who doesn't endorse the desired narrative.

I think the value of HN has died down a lot. A lot of the comments are reactionary and out right stupid. The web devs there are fucking morons, the managers and business types are fucking morons, etc. Show HN is still okay.

Someone should make an tech news site where the requirement is to have a project on github/bitbucket/whatever that isn't a complete joke. People can apply to join the community by submitting their project and existing members would decide on whether or not to extend an invitation.

All non-tech topics including pro or anti SJW garbage, women in tech, minorities in tech, h1b visas, CEO sexcapades etc are deleted and abuse gets you banned

I just want one legit place online where I don't have to worry about political garbage and I can talk with others about technology. The irony of this is of course is that I want a tech safe space.
>>
>>61429122
Wanting to discuss technical topics rather than fashionable politics is not safe-spacing.

>where the requirement is to have a project on github/bitbucket/whatever that isn't a complete joke

There are several sites kind of like this already. They're not public though and most of them are very difficult to get into if you're not living in the SF/SV area or are a well known open source contributor. Post quality is way above HN and far more technical.

They are so fucking insufferable

I got banned for my first post which wasn't even that edgy. Not I just spread hate even though nobody can see my fucking comments. I do it out of pure spite.

I have nothing but disdain for the plebs on that website. None of them are worth saving. Most of them get pegged on a daily base. I'm praying for tidal waves.
>>
The "community" writes garbage comments but is refreshingly effective at voting up the most important news and topics.

Not that it isn't already happening anyway, but I'll keep enjoying that until marketers and other corporate interests implement full voting manipulation. At least until then it seems more value-driven than any part of Plebbit.

You're reading too much into an election by assuming that people actually do want what's on offer. Then again, that induction of cognitive dissonance is part and parcel of the whole game of single-winner elections.
You're making the follow-on mistake of assuming that the 40% of people who don't align with one of the two corporate parties don't want you all dead.
You're also making the shipost-tier error(?) of assuming that the Democrat Party is "left" in any frame outside of the owners of the two corporate parties.
Your assumptions are the sorts of assumptions that someone who actually believes in the corporate two-party system would make, and therefore you're no friend of Trump either.

HN has never been just for technical content. It started out as Startup News and has always had business stories. The SJWs are a separate matter. Remove them and the nontechnical content will revert to business, history and science fiction.
>>
>>61429122
the funny thing about hacker news and even present day slashdot is the readers still call out the SJW shit, but only when it's the immediate danger of "women in STEM" or "H1B visas are the best thing ever"
The editors still try to peddle those stories but time and time again they get called out in the comments

>>61427149
>is this literally Dunning-Kruger: the community?

The only thing worthwhile about HN is reading the comments of some old users that still have something interesting to say. Animats, for example.

The site itself is useless to debate anything. It's ridiculously puerile in its passive-aggressiveness: the graying-out moderation, the random hellbans, the moderators that unashamedly cut threads they don't like (usually for going against The Narrative), etc.
>>
They are a VC company, so they try to direct all this tech talk
Of course, that means they HAVE to virtue signal
All those funded companies are shit, even the ones that make money, they have dotcom thinking
The way they can censor posts is pretty amazing, detaching it from the thread and making it hard to read
The ads look exactly like normal posts except they can't be upvoted
i think r/LateStageCapitalism (a SJW cancer) could farm content from there
