Since today is Net Neutrality Day and all that, I'm just going to repost this link to one of the first posts I made about Net Neutrality, seven years ago. My stance has not changed between then and now, except maybe to say that I feel like regulations to keep big corporations from shitting all over Net Neutrality are even more vital today.

A pretty good read.

(EDIT)

Again, the perpetual quandary: Is it worse to actually be a racist, misogynist, homophobic, antisemitic, anti-Muslim, idiotic shitsmear on the underwear of humanity? Or is it worse to merely pretend to be a racist, misogynist, homophobic, antisemitic, anti-Muslim, idiotic shitsmear on the underwear of humanity to the extent that nobody can tell the difference at all?

I still don't have an adequate answer for this, except for "it doesn't really matter which is the case, because it's abominable in either case."

"Your Friend Hana"

(EDIT) And once again, the refund went through within a couple of hours. Good. (/EDIT)

For the second time now, I have requested a refund for a game on Steam. This time it was for a game (if you can even call it a "game") that only cost a dollar, but I still decided I would rather have my dollar back than to keep this thing.

So, because I pretty much loathe Steam reviews and find them nigh useless (and you can just look at the reviews for the game I linked to above, for examples of why I feel this way), I'll just post a mini-review here, instead.

"Your Friend Hana" is apparently a chatbot. I deduced this from the description and screenshots. It's why I bought it for a mere dollar. However, what the description and screenshots don't tell you is that Hana is apparently a very stupid chatbot. You can find smarter, more sophisticated chatbots for free via a simple <insert search engine of choice here> search. See, my problem was that I was typing complete sentences, and she just kept responding with "What did you say?" I found out later, via the forums, after I had already uninstalled it and requested the refund, that she apparently only responds to single key words. Except that even when I'd tried a single word "Hello," she still replied with "What did you say?" Oh well. I don't think I'm missing anything at all of value here, except for that dollar that I hope Steam gives back to me within a reasonable amount of time.
