Open Letter to Steve Huffman and the Board of Directors of Reddit, Inc – If you believe in standing up to hate and supporting black lives, you need to act
On June 1, you shared a letter on Reddit’s blog “Remember the Human – Black Lives Matter”. In this letter, you claim “as Snoos, we do not tolerate hate, racism, and violence, and while we have work to do to fight these on our platform, our values are clear.”
As of today, neither you nor any other Reddit admins have shared this letter anywhere on reddit.com. However, the response to this message was swift on Twitter, where you were rightfully labeled as hypocritical based on your long and well-recorded history of defending racism and white supremacy on this site.
Among the many responses was this message from former CEO of Reddit, Ellen Pao.

Spider-Man: Into The Spider-verse (2018) opens with Miles trying to sing along to “Sunflower.” He conveniently gets one of the lines wrong, saying “she wanna drive me-“ instead of the recorded lyric “she wanna ride me like a cruise,” narrowly eliminating a sexual double entendre in this PG film.
ELI5: How did they fit open world games like Zelda and the original Final Fantasy into NES cartridges
With some basic Googling It looks like that the max size was around 512 KB. How is this even possible to fit games of this size onto such little memory? What is this magic?
Edit: Wow, this absolutely blew up. Thank you everyone for the detailed answers. Several people have linked the Morphcat Games video which I will share here. It is very informative.
Edit 2: I also did some more of my own research and found this video very informative about 8 bit graphics and processing:

DOOM Eternal OST Open Letter
An open letter to the incredible DOOM community.
Over the past couple weeks, I’ve seen lots of discussion centered around the release of the DOOM Eternal Original Game Soundtrack (OST). While many fans like the OST, there is speculation and criticism around the fact that the game’s talented and popular composer, Mick Gordon, edited and “mixed” only 12 of the 59 tracks on the OST - the remainder being edited by our Lead Audio Designer here at id.
Some have suggested that we’ve been careless with or disrespectful of the game music. Others have speculated that Mick wasn’t given the time or creative freedom to deliver something different or better. The fact is – none of that is true.
What has become unacceptable to me are the direct and personal attacks on our Lead Audio Designer - particularly considering his outstanding contributions to the game – as well as the damage this mischaracterization is doing to the many talented people who have contributed to the game and continue to sup

WCGW if I open my restaurant against state orders?
"Men are like keys and women are like locks. A lock that can be opened by different keys isn’t worth anything, but a key that can open many locks is." This analogy is horrible and I'm sad it's still repeated. What do you say to this?
For those who have had this said to their face or in discussion around the double standards men and women deal with wrt sex, what did you say?
Edit: No one is asking for an explanation of the analogy. It's understood. No one needs a mansplainer, thanks. It's a sexist comparison.
Edit 2: Some seem really fixated on the use of the informal term "mansplain." Does the definition need to be explained to you or are you just offended because it's something you've been told you do/have done?"
Edit 3: A fellow redditor shared something about "mansplain" that got me thinking:
>I'm not saying what the term describes doesn't happen. I'm saying the term shouldn't be used
Like imagine if when you got overemotional a guy was like "she's just on her period". Like it's true that it happens. It might be true that that is part of the cause in that exact moment. But he still shouldn't have said it.
Similarly it might be partly due to the guy's gender that he's being condescending. And

Dear Jagex: If You Don’t Have Time to Open a Formal Investigation in to Frontline’s recorded harassment and alleged DOXing/Hacking, the Cambridge police can do it for you.
We did it lads. Huge shoutout to /u/JagexSween for communicating and taking action on this. Frontline recently posted their "Official Response" video on Twitter where they show a screenshot of Sween's post, say they're not sorry, call us pussies, and act like they're untouchable. Frontline, since you're apparently reading this, I just want to say that your response may be the worst response to a controversy in recent history, and you're in for a reality check. Link to their video here: https://twitter.com/Frontline_RS/status/1262462777723170818
*The clan needs to be DQ’d
*Every player in that video should be suspended. Not perma’d but suspended until it’s investigated. That’s why I said “allegedly”.
*Jagex needs to open an investigation in to the incident
*Information should be passed to law enforcement If their Legal team decides there’s reason to do so.
What the Frontline members did in the clip posted goes beyond “banter” and “lol oh clans are so toxic”.

If you chew with your mouth open, i immediately have no respect for you
I have sensory issues, so im biased because chewing sounds give me panic attacks, but either way, it is the most annoying habit anyone can have.
It is such an easy thing to correct too, so if you do it even into your adulthood, and you don't have any underlying issues that cause it, i already have no respect for you. I cant help it, I just cannot make myself be nice to people like that.
