Actually it is a reference to Monty Python satire of silly job interviews..

Just run Procmon and see all the mischief Win10 does, endless churning of registry entries.
Also they don't even trust their own code or delivery system. After every update, windows anti-virus scans all the new files from the update, the logs for the update, and all the related temporary files, bricking your system until it finishes.
I have used Audacity for years. It's a wonderful open ended swissknife type audio editor.
But all good things eventually must come to an end. Take one look a this new owner's other products and the future of Audacity is clear.
The free version will only have a few of the most basic functions. To get the good stuff, one will have to subscribe so the more powerful functions are only available via the cloud.
So I guest I will be using the current version from now on or until a new version of Windows breaks it eventually.
It's only a matter of time before this operation shows their hand on how they intend to monetize Audacity. Their current methods with other "free" products they offer is to sell Pro versions, or subscriptions to better features or abilities, or sample pack sales.
This bunch is out to monetize Audacity for sure, one way or another. So much for further development of free updates and new features that are not premium.
SOP pentagon action when some bit of secret kit gets it's photo/video out in the public eye, feign ignorance, and hint that it was little green men.
As for the real aliens "I want to believe" crowd. In nature the the most advanced species always dominates the less advanced species. In the entirety of history how often does an advanced civilization treat the natives well of land it "discovers" and wants to exploit.
This has been the Pentagons SOP since the 50s to gloss over inadvertent exposure of various secret test craft. Anyone who does not think they are heavily into developing drones now is naïve. Green men is is excuse number 1 when some dolt manages to get a secret test craft observed or recorded publicly, or some idiot officer allows a guncam footage to be seen and duplicated by anyone without a need to know.
The latest ISP scam is that in the last year or so they all have been adding fine print to the extent that they don't guarantee any usable speed for Wi-Fi.
When 80% of internet users use Wi-Fi between their router and their home device, bragging about 100 mps is totally misleading as the Wi-Fi is now throttled down to 25 or less mps.
The FCC needs to count last leg Wi-Fi in it's measurements.
A nano second after publicly funded research (NASA Mars Rover program) finds valuable resources on Mars, Musk and his partially publicly funded space fleet will suddenly be fully operational and will get employees there first to claim the entire planet and establish a puppet sovereign government with Musky pulling the strings.
We need to get past this stupid, morinic idea that internet social media are any different from any other kind of publishing.
It is publishing and it needs to operate under the same laws existing regarding publishing.
Cute kitty pictures is not worth it giving this form of publication a free pass from civic responsibility.
That is a cruel joke. Emergency rooms, after you wait bleeding out in the lobby for 12 hours, will give then patch you up just enough to send you back on the street and you will be on your own to get a primary physician to follow you and actually come up with an ongoing treatment plan.
If you have not been in an ER in the last 10 years, are you in for a surprise.
She does not seem to have any history of sympathy for white supremist/Nazi's, and she seems highly regarded by her peers on LinkedIn, so how/why is she getting the axe for this. Perhaps she was delegating the authority to oversee matters like this to an unqualified and/or inexperienced subordinate who may have been a Nazi sympathizer, or just plain incompetent.
This dip shit's original decision to allow some people but not others to break the rules is what got us here in the first place.
That and the abortion called 230 which unlike every other publishing medium, lets social media platforms publish all forms of libel, fraud, calls for violence, hate, insurrection, calls for lynch parties, organizing terrorist attacks with no liability.
Things will continue to get worse until 230 is abolished.
Good luck with that!
I guess you don't remember public access cable, now a historical curiosity after the right stomped on it.
The right has always fought tooth and nail to prevent any public ownership of media outlets no matter the medium.
To answer your question, flat earthers are always free to express their opinion, it is just if they want to do it globally they need to a) buy their own Internet service provider and b) buy their own social media platform. Social media and the internet are not public commons, they are private property.
In man's/corporation's (thanks to Citizens United) home/property, they have every right to boot you out if you day something that offends them.
If flat earthers can't afford the price of owning a global communications platform that is just too bad for them.
Total BS facesaving political theatre posing.
All these social media platforms have not changed a wit. They collect information on individuals, they continue to fine tune algorithms to identify the gullible and send them any content that the gullible might swallow whole. They of course don't give a rats ass if the content is anti-social, fascist, racist, seditious, or treasonist.
The constitutions give you free speech, not a free printing press, broadcasting station or world internet platform. If you want to speak to more than your neighbor it's on you to come up with the means.
This idiocy will continue, their will be more bombings like Oklahoma City, more Nazi riots, until 230 is history.
The most significant thing about this bill is that most people let it just whoosh right by them, because $600 per person is way more attractive to think about than the facts, which are the payments to individuals is less than 1 tenth of the total spending of the bill, i.e. 90% of it is destined for corporate welfare recipients.
The Founding Fathers also put some pretty strong language in the founding documents against corporate power, but thanks to Repubicans (propped up with idiot Christian anti-abortion dog whistle racists) we now have Citizens United which out to be renamed, "Full citizenship and personhood for Corporations including the right to bribe any government official legallly.
