In the last few months:
- Tumblr purged adult content (and a bunch of stuff it misindentified).
- Flickr purged free storage above a limit of 1000 photos/account.
- Myspace deleted 12 years' worth of music.
And Google+ only has two weeks left before Google pulls its plug.

Islamophobia Show more
Islamophobes have a weird tendency to insist on archaic spellings/transliterations like "moslem" and "Mahomet".
Is that because elderly people used to those spellings are overrepresented in bigots or it it just a petty potshot along the lines of "you're not even worth transliterating according to contemporary convention".
Imagine a full datacenter rack cabinet. Mostly the machines have been mounted neatly on rails with cable management arms and velcro, systematically placing the IEC power leads on alternating sides.
The top 3U or so of the rack is a clusterfuck of fibers, UTP, and mains cables hanging out in a kinky ball of loops.
Now think, my dear disciples, in which part of the rack are you going to be replacing a switch today?

The number of tolerable ones asymptotically approaches 0 over time and it's gotten to the point I can't think of a single one right now.
