You could try I guess
Also do any cryptos relate to any real world value or are they entirely speculative?
Depends on who you ask. I think they can have real world applications but realistically most of them will never get t .....

It seems rather obvious to me that thinking games attract thinking people... I don't think we need studies to prove that

Re: The Good game attitude

It's like shaking hands. It's like saying "you don't need to walk on eggshells around me because you won". This is important to communicate because, often enough, one does have to walk on eggshells after winning a game. The "gg" relieves tension. For this reason it becomes a bit .....

Re: my rant/whine about team games, stream sniping and more

Fair it does prevent point trading, but I wouldn't go so far as to say ranks "don't matter" in such a system. Point trader accounts are easy to identify and since they don't tend to actually play the game they're easy to ignore. Ranks mattered in that, for actual players, you could tell by .....

Well it wasn't obvious to me, for reasons mentioned. And yeah I wasn't curious enough to find the answer. If I thought simply clicking the link would get me the answer I would have. I thought it needed explanation.

That wasn't my reaction at all. I never thought either you or the tweet were dumb. I meant "randomly" from my perspective. I asked for the relation between the tweet and the fb post specifically because I thought I was missing it due to ignorance about what "giving tuesday" is or .....

Re: 2020 US Elections

My assumption that I was missing the point due to ignorance was certainly wrong in hindsight. But I don't think it was unreasonable to think that twitter embeds contain the entire tweet.

Re: 2020 US Elections

I don't really care, I just thought it made a good point and was a fun read (in a way) so I posted it. The difference though is that when the header of an article gets embedded, no one would think it contains the entire article. Twitter embeds usually do contain the entire tweet.

Re: 2020 US Elections

If it was a link I may have clicked, but when it's embedded like that I (imo reasonably) assume it contains the entire tweet. I didn't know twitter embeds crop images.
