comment Should Scots language questions be considered in the English language community?
@zwol: «Randolph Quirk adapted the definition to "A language is a dialect with an army and a flag" (adding a defense policy and a national airline)» Hah - love it!

comment Should we fix backticks?
@CandiedOrange: Yes, and it is a textbook lesson in why you shouldn't use "incorrect" formatting markup for the task at hand. Those posts are already broken. This does not make them more broken!

comment WTH is up with the 'beyond 300' review queue?
I think it's more important to get closures right than to process them quickly. Lowering the vote threshold just to rush through the queue faster seems like a dangerous proposition and a slippery slope. Kind of like saying we can reduce the workload and waiting period during a general election if we start letting only those living in the capital city actually vote.

@GregLee: wtf are you talking about? The solution to "somebody is violating my rights" is not "so I shall simply forfeit them", and as for the rest of your comment I have literally no idea what you're going on about.

Greg, this is ridiculous. The website in question is violating the licence and plagiarising, which is wrong on both an ethical and legal level. You can't just take it upon yourself to hand-wave that away, calling it "selfish"; what total nonsense.
