“Nearly 25% of mothers go back to work within two weeks of giving birth. To give you a sense of where human mothers fall on the legal protection hierarchy, it’s illegal to separate a dog from her newborn pups before 8 weeks in several states.” The law protects dogs more than human women. by Orangutan in whatever

So maybe "no one" is forcing them but circumstances are... Not everyone works in a place that offers FMLA. The cost of having a baby can be $50,000 out of pocket in some US locations. They may have a job with no paid vacation time. Personal choice is a privilege for many/most American working people.

Most excellent! Thank you you fine people!

[Meta] Not a whisper has been spoken about this but Reddit Inc. is about to strike a 150 million dollar deal (potentially 300 million) with a Chinese censorship powerhouse... prepare for HEAVY censorship.

But I guess I'm just conditioned for there being a specific place or "sub," for that and not predominantly on the front page.

There is an account with many sockpuppets that keeps spamming the front page with garbage "conspiracy" clickbait. A solution is underway, but it's tricky when a site is doing its darndest not to excercise censorship.

Straight out of the bully/abuser's handbook--accuse others of the things you're doing. It's totally bizarre how they all do that.

The worst of it is, they use real people to do it. I have a not-so-distant connection to this poor man, who they killed in their "standoff": https://wnep.com/2018/12/31/man-dead-after-standoff-in-lycoming-county/

I worry about this being/becoming more datamining to be used later when MI6 take over your username. I'd much rather have block-user, because honestly these shillspam weirdos are pretty easy to spot even without the voter ID.

ETA: Block sub is also an excellent idea IMO, thanks to those who proposed it.

Yes, good point. Phage therapy is really interesting and seems promising. If left in good hands. And if made available to the 99%.

I swear most of the human species is the subject of this same ongoing experiment, via other means than CRISPR thus far.

I have been researching a scam, and the Wayback Machine has been scrubbed of almost all evidence regarding it. If you click the links on the Operation Dormouse entry from OPs list you will see all of them are dead--but one redirects to a page entitled "wayback machine can't be trusted" that constantly reloads so it's hard to read. I'll try to capture it in a mo.

Otherwise here are a couple of links: https://nakedsecurity.sophos.com/2018/05/29/wayback-machine-unarchives-spying-website/

Indeed. But as the community and its presence grows, the chicanery inevitably begins in earnest.
