    Such a perfect comment, sad that MuH FrEEEeEzE PeAcH squad is always the shittiest of people complaining about things that do not violate their 1st amendment rights. Almost like they are fascist shit stains that whine when they get kicked out of places for civil society. The idealism of SN has been shown to be a farce and we're left with a flood of garbage by dedicated fascists.

    Women's rights to their own bodies? Nope!

    Live and let live regardless of gender or religious affiliation? Nope!

    Support policies to help fellow citizens? Nope!

    Violent attacks and degradation of society's support systems? Hell ya!

    If Soylent News went away I don't think there's anywhere else on the Intertubes I could do my stupid signalling. It's the one place where I neither know nor care what people look like but I can post questions and sometimes get useful answers.

      Who said anything about shutting it down? Just think there should be better community moderation, crud like https://soylentnews.org/comments.pl?noupdate=1&sid=57977&page=1&cid=1327495 [soylentnews.org] should be kicked out, a site advertising as News for Nerds should have some bare minimum standards for truth and decorum. There are standards, but they are arbitrarily enforced at the whims of staff volunteers.

        If aristardchus can get stories advocating cannibalism accepted, well, I don't know what else can be done. Arbitrary whims of staff? Do not be caught snowed in with chromas. Just saying.

          The article is not advocating cannibalism - it is confirming that it took place in a specific group of people 15,000 years ago, and discussing the implications of this fact.

          You are just about what the story actually said. And I know that aristarchus submitted it - we can see that on IRC. But anyone can submit a story for consideration and, if it meets the site's criteria for submissions, it might be published.

          You posted a submission. If it had been rejected you would have claimed that we are rejecting valid submissions from ACs, which would not be true. However, it was accepted and now you are trying to mock the story selection process that shoots down your expected response in flames. You need to seek psychiatric help.

          Your post is moderated as Spam in accordance with the ban that has been imposed upon you.

            AC has been banned, now? What are you doing, janrinok? Why are you responding?

            And what "group of people" was that? Yes, Englishmen. Fee, fie, foo, fum. And, where? In Gough's Cave, near Cheddar Gorge, I will never be able to eat the cheese again.

            For example, William and his colleagues are now trying to can figure out whether these cannibalized humans were related to one another, or whether they were eating people from outside their immediate groups.

            Sun never sets, etc., etc.

      The last time I did some stupid signalling I caused a train crash. Never again...
