It's even worse than it appears.

  • I’m with Andrew Yang. We’re destroying people’s lives. You feel powerful, then you move on. The people whose lives you destroyed are still destroyed. Sometimes the punishment fits the crime, but (key point) this is not how our system works, for good reason. #
  • We have laws and courts and juries and processes.#
  • And the “crimes” are getting increasingly meta.#
  • And there’s no provision for rehab.#
  • Or wrong verdicts.#
  • This is hell. #
  • PS: So you know -- I know how it feels to seek revenge on people whose ideas are abhorrent. I was a fan of Mel Gibson's movies until it came out that he was an anti-semite. Now I'm appalled that he's working in Hollywood again, they've decided to accept him back. I don't like it, but abhorrent ideas are not a crime in the US. #

You know those obnoxious sites that pop up dialogs when they think you're about to leave, asking you to subscribe to their email newsletter? Well that won't do for Scripting News readers who are a discerning lot, very loyal, but that wouldn't last long if I did rude stuff like that. So here I am at the bottom of the page quietly encouraging you to sign up for the nightly email. It's got everything from the previous day on Scripting, plus the contents of the linkblog and who knows what else we'll get in there. People really love it. I wish I had done it sooner. And every email has an unsub link so if you want to get out, you can, easily -- no questions asked, and no follow-ups. Go ahead and do it, you won't be sorry! :-)
