Shurat haDin — Israel Law Center finally demonstrated what Jewish Facebook users have felt anecdotally, that Facebooks’s dread of catering to Islamophobia has them underenforcing their own rules of appopriate content when posted by an Arab or Muslim…

Do it yourself: if you have all the right tools. (In which case you’re probably experienced enough a leather worker that this is trivial.)

From +Rory Modena:
I haven't really written about the Sad Puppies 3 campaign on my blog because when it really started to heat up, my two and a half month old son Brandon died of SIDs. After that, I kind of wanted to...

This is required reading for anybody on either side of the cintroversy over the Hugos
On Saturday they announced the finalists for the Hugo Awards. As you are aware by now, Sad Puppies suggested candidates absolutely dominated. I tried to mostly avoid the internet this weekend becau...

A good overview of an important topic. Little of what +Eric Raymond says affords much room for intelligent disagreement (though the outrage monkeys will no doubt be offering their usual insights), but it may be helpful to have this information packaged up for reference.

Everything I need to say about mass shootings has already been said in this post from December 2012. I wrote it in response to Sandy Hook. It went viral and was read by over a million people. I als...

+Entertainment Weekly seems to have changed the headline from “Hugo Award nominations fall victim to misogynistic, racist voting” to “Hugo Awards voting campaign sparks controversy”. But the article’s libel is still there in the lede:

“The Hugo Awards have fallen victim to a campaign in which misogynist groups lobbied to nominate only white males for the science fiction book awards.”

The writer seems to assume nobody will follow the link she herself provided to Brad Torgersen’s blog post with the “Sad Puppies” slate: even a casual glance turns up lots of female names on the list. As it happens, writers and editors of both sexes, and of divers ethnic backgrounds, and of political opinions across the political spectrum, are all represented on this list.

In other words, this entire article is a lie. It ought to be withdrawn with an abject apology for the blatant libel offered to Brad Torgersen.

Chesky... Schneier has come out with some numbers. In the novelette category, for instance: Of 'Puppies', a group I assume includes both Rabids and Sads, half of those who had a majority of Puppy slate nominees on their ballots had no non-Puppy nominees on their ballots. Of non-Puppies, three quarters didn't even have a single Top 5 non-Puppy on their ballot.

In terms of our bet, I think I would say this suggests there is indeed higher variance between Puppies than many suspected, but still much, much higher slate discipline among the Puppies than any group of non-Puppies at all, and absolutely no evidence whatsoever for any kind of prospiracy/conspiracy/liberal CHORF chokehold on the awards.

These look good. Make ’em with pastrami, or lamb or turkey bacon, and they’ll be kosher.
