I suffer from, among others, light sensitivity.

So if you don't like dark UIs you're not getting any sympathy from me.
In fact, if you like joking about dark UIs/themes being awful/barbaric/whatever I'll likely just mute you because F off.

A more precise example of this would be thinking that currency is the result of capitalism.
Somehow, despite coins existing well before capitalism itself was a thing.

Bonus "nope" points if they also complain about how people complaining about capitalism are using too loose a definition.

Because while, sure, not inaccurate. But the only way their Glorious Capitalism claim could be true if at least as loose a definition was used.

Ugh. As much as I enjoy it when people make it clear I won't miss anything and will be better of muting them just in case it's always a little bit draining when I ran into a subtle tell.

I.e. Something mild like sharing wank about how great capitalism is for [creating/offering/whatever] X. Where X is something that's at best an answer to BS caused by capitalism, but usually not related to it in any meaningful way.

Just realised the Monster Hunter Rise demo doesn't (and kinda can't) show off the UX update I most desperately want over MHGU:
Seeing what my actual equipment options for crafting/updating are.

For MHGU I have to go online to check what equipment I can make and what I can update to what.
And while there's a sense of discovery there, the amount of effort required to collect the resources to explore a dead-end can be a lot.

Apparently some more clarification is needed here. I don't even mean to bash on Bitcoin. As I've said in this thread and many times before: it's an amazing and successful technology. By all means, go ahead and use it for whatever you like! It's great.

But please, just don't pretend and keep pushing it as the revolution that will be replacing our entire finance system. It just won't.

Just to put this into perspective:

The average value of a Bitcoin transaction is currently $119 and requires energy worth roughly $100 (the world average price is $0.14 per kWh).
