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".

    I think you should stop calling SN a technology based website.

    At some point, new management needs to step up and clarify our purpose. I don't think it needs to be a front page story... a document with submission guidelines could serve the purpose.

    At the very least, it would end the debate...

    ...but you HAVE heard of me.

    And our current rules and understanding allow just that. It doesn't have to even be a current issue, it can be something dredged up from the past, (we've had several of these already). It can be anything. The categories to select from, are just suggestions, and Dev Random is always available.

    We have a pretty good variety, with perhaps too much concentration on CURRENT issues. But that might just be because people don't tend to read old stuff on the web, and we gravitate to newer stories.

    "Management" seems to be taking a hands off approach. and I think that's be design. As far as I'm concerned there is no debate. I just don't think we need people insisting it always needs to be tech.

    No, you are mistaken. I've always had this sig.
