When I learned that there was a tech hub in California called "Menlo Park", my first thought was that it was obviously named after Menlo Park, New Jersey, where Edison had his laboratory.
But oddly enough, it turns out to be the other way around. Menlo Park, NJ was named after Menlo Park, CA in the 1870s, for no particular reason other than that a real estate developer liked the name.
Pointing out that some rando said something stupid about an issue proves nothing. There are stupid people on every side of every issue. Anything, even things you agree with, can be believed for bad reasons.
It only becomes important if:
- You can show that lots of people agree with the stupid claim, or
- The person making the stupid claim is in a position of power or influence, or is a candidate for such a position
"We’ve been told nonstop throughout this about how we must treat 'consumers' or 'potential customers' a certain way... [T]he people using the terms consumers and potential customers here are doing so specifically because we’ve never actually sold them anything and don’t owe them anything at all... Whenever I’ve mentioned that we, as random people happening to be making a game, don’t owe these other random people anything, they become absolutely enraged."
A reminder: The destruction of the Earth in Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy was audacious and unexpected at the time. Audiences had been thoroughly trained to expect that any attempts by aliens at destroying the Earth would always be thwarted by the protagonists. I think that's kind of gotten lost as other works, from Red Dwarf to Homestuck, have made the demise of the human race into a normal premise for comedy.
Few things will make me distrust your server's security more than imposing an unreasonably small maximum password length, like 16 characters or something.
Not because 16 characters is too short for a secure password, but because the obvious explanation for caring about the length is that you're storing the passwords as plain text instead of salted hashes.
Vague game idea: An adventure game with a crossword puzzle in it, with clues that refer to things elsewhere in the game, and some clues refer to things that you can change. Like, if there's a clue "Resident of the master bedroom", and the words crossing it give you the answer "LLAMA", you have to get a llama into the master bedroom somehow or the answer will be judged as incorrect.
