Excellent tips for doing so:

On the other hand, it's often advised to not hold too much of your employer's stock in your 401k. You already "invest" your future earnings in the company so it is better to diversify into, for example, an index fund. It's also a gamble that your employer will outperform the market during your entire career.
And then you find a site that tabs out to invisible fields and you curse the developer and all his ancestors. Worst if it happens between username and password, but also bad if it happens from address bar to the first useful field.
Sidenote: the fact that F6 on most modern browsers selects the entire address field is probably the most life-changing thing I learned in the past 5 years.
I agree with the sentiment, but you have to fix the underlying cause first. Record holders for this type of thing are disproportionately male because they historically had more opportunities. If this is fixed and women are given the same opportunities to break records and pass milestones, then the distinction becomes unnecessary. Until then, women deserve recognition for making these achievements despite the odds stacked against them. No one would write/publish/read an article titled "person fails to break longest spaceflight record".
The point of the article isn't that we shouldn't use it, it's that we have to be careful with it.
Current (dumb) AI is so good at finding garbage that we risk spending more time debunking its findings than developing new and actually useful methods of finding alien life.
"As I was making a 90-degree turn to park, your record would certainly show that I pressed the breaks [sic] during the turn. The only way I could have put the car in the high acceleration - that my wife and I noticed - would be that I lifted my feet[sic? I only use one foot at a time on a given pedal] from the break [sic] and instantly pressed very hard on the accelerated [sic] paddle[sic]. I cant[sic] understand how that be[sic] feasible. If the record does not show this precise pattern, than[sic] it points to a potential software flaw."
I'd send it to corrections, but it's mainly mocking the petitioner.
> They do appear to have actively and vociferously announced that they utterly refuse to use preferred pronouns, after also repeatedly calling someone by a pronoun they really didn't like, despite being asked not to.
I'm curious to know where you got that idea. The mod was fired for asking for clarifications about the new policy. Namely: is it OK to avoid pronouns altogether, to use examples gender neutral examples while not referring to the "asker" at all. She didn't say she would misgender people purposefully, she asked if omitting gender altogether was acceptable.
For once it would be the salesman claiming:
"'E's not pinin'! 'E's passed on! This parrot is no more! He has ceased to be! 'E's expired and gone to meet 'is maker! 'E's a stiff! Bereft of life, 'e rests in peace! If you hadn't nailed 'im to the perch 'e'd be pushing up the daisies! 'Is metabolic processes are now 'istory! 'E's off the twig! 'E's kicked the bucket, 'e's shuffled off 'is mortal coil, run down the curtain and joined the bleedin' choir invisible!! THIS IS AN EX-PARROT!!"
You should have seen the month where I started downloading VR... uh... documentaries. Those things are like 10Gb/20 mins. And when downloading... documentaries... you always get more than you can reasonably watch (soreness from all the learning, of course).
