@joeyh I consider HN to be actively harmful. So much groupthink, so little experience. Latest example: someone posted my article https://changelog.complete.org/archives/10053-the-incredible-disaster-of-python-3 there and I got a ton of uninformed comments. So I wrote https://changelog.complete.org/archives/10063-the-fundamental-problem-in-python-3 to elaborate and got more uninformed hate from HN. But it is far from just me. @ngate 's hilarious and sadly on-point "webshit weekly" from http://n-gate.com/hackernews/ is a fun and sad read.
