I've been followed by 20 different "tech" news pages today on Google+, and blocked every single one of them. Is anyone else getting this follow-spam garbage?

I haven't gotten any for awhile, spammers have been quiet. It seems related to the number of public posts I'm making.

"I must confess that over the past few years I have been gravely disappointed with the white moderate. I have almost reached the regrettable conclusion that the Negro's great stumbling block in his stride toward freedom is not the White Citizen's Counciler or the Ku Klux Klanner, but the white moderate, who is more devoted to 'order' than to justice; who prefers a negative peace which is the absence of tension to a positive peace which is the presence of justice; who constantly says: 'I agree with you in the goal you seek, but I cannot agree with your methods of direct action'; who paternalistically believes he can set the timetable for another man's freedom; who lives by a mythical concept of time and who constantly advises the Negro to wait for a 'more convenient season.' Shallow understanding from people of good will is more frustrating than absolute misunderstanding from people of ill will. Lukewarm acceptance is much more bewildering than outright rejection."
— Martin Luther King, Jr., 1963

So, like we've all been saying for decades now, vaccinate your &$#%ing children
Despite over a decades’ worth of research that have found no association between the measles vaccine and autism, some parents still refuse to immunize their children. Well, here’s a new study from the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) that says, again, there’s no link. And this time, they looked at insurance claims for more than 95,000 children, some of whom have older siblings with autism spectrum disorders (ASD).

Horrible UX on Apple keyboards, and it’s gone on for years. These symbols mean “fast forward” and “rewind”, not “skip track” (which is precisely what they do). I hope they fix it one day, but I won’t hold my breath.

A $9 MINIMUM?! Are you kidding me? That's ridiculous! This is a taco place, not some fine dining establishment! Would rather go to another local businesses open at this hour, one that isn't trying to rape my wallet.

When it comes to clothing for guys who usually wear a "small" it's honestly some really nice clothing, fits well, but very overpriced. Would not buy from them unless there was a sale, or you really Really REALLY liked a piece of clothing in their collection. Not entirely worth the exorbitant prices, but if you DO get something from them you like, it's likely that you really like it!

Good accommodations and nice location, but outside security staff for events are less-than-ideal. Hotel needs to do a better job training off-site staff for large-scale events so that guests feel comfortable and welcomed in their establishment rather than like outcasts being looked down upon by overbearing parents.

Great food, though slightly overpriced for the portions and service. Tries to push itself off as "fine dining" but it's really a mid-fare dining establishment with mid-fare menu items. Can get the same meal elsewhere (Flat Top Grill, for instance) for much cheaper and with the same quality of service. Visit if you want to spend more money then it's worth, and you like the atmosphere.
