The religious and cultural tensions the West faces are "payback" for slavery and colonialism, a Chinese state-run newspaper said Tuesday in the wake of the Islamist attack on Charlie Hebdo magazine.

The editorial in the Global Times newspaper — which often takes a nationalistic tone — dismissed the weekend's huge marches in Paris and elsewhere as "painkillers" that cannot halt the intensifying "clash of civilizations".

    They are the icons that we use to describe the story content.

    I'm not sure of the point that you are trying to make but, if you are implying that the icons indicate that we are a tech-only site, then I will draw your attention to 'random', news, career and education, reviews and 'Answers' - all of which can be applied to non-technical subjects. But, I'm not sure that this is the point that you were making.....

    We are a predominantly technical site but we will cover any news item submitted if we feel that there will be sufficient interest in the community to justify it. Just because an item doesn't meet everyone's idea of a good story it doesn't follow that nobody is interested. Of course, if you do prefer more technical stories then submit them rather than complain that everyone else is submitting stories that you don't like. We chose the stories from those submitted by the community.
