if i have to read one more fucking post about going back to the good old days of when websites were slow, clunky, barren, boring pages with black text on a white background that auto-refreshed with fucking meta tags, used iframes to divide content, and had zero javascript, i swear to fuck

what's that? you need proof that the internet would be better off if every website looked like craigslist? look at the massive gopher community. look how many people are using gopher:// links every single day. HTTPS is completely eclipsed by the enormous userbase. this is what we want. HTML5 isn't accessible with its "semantic markup" and "aria descriptive captions". that's a bunch of bullshit. you know what IS accessible? raw text. if you can get your screen reader to tell you whether somethin's a quote or a sentence or a navbar, guess what? it's fucking spyware and NOT accessible

@BestGirlGrace i can blow up a lot of twitter servers too, that's just a distributed system

@chr didn't your mother ever tell you not to use single-letter variable names

@chr @roll i will write the code if you point me in the right direction

@roll @chr (can you change k* so that it shows the non-kept dice as well? a lot of dice pool games have special consequences for if you happen to roll a 1 or a 6)
