Even May himself is delighted by the eye-catching progress he is making. While his scorching effort against New Zealand at Twickenham in 2014 is still among his favourite tries, he now has many more strings to his bow. “I am a different player to what I was,” he acknowledges, quick to stress his good fortune to be on the end of an increasingly dangerous attacking backline. “I have scored a lot in my last 12 Tests, more than in my first 30.

‘It will be a change when the garden is not knee-deep in weeds’ It has been walks with the dog and the vegetable garden for me.

What all the white-power racist-sexist neckbeards don’t understand is that with her at the head of the company, the company would be immune to accusations of promoting sexism and racism: she is literally Silicon Valley’s #1 Feminist Hero, so any “SJWs” would have a hard time attacking the company for intentionally creating a bastion (heh) of sexist/racist content. She probably would have tolerated your existence so long as you didn’t cause any problems - I know that her long-term strategies were to find ways to surface and publicize reddit’s good parts - allowing the bad parts to exist but keeping them out of the spotlight. It would have been very principled - the CEO of reddit, who once sued her previous employer for sexual discrimination, upholds free speech and tolerates the ugly … [Read more...] about What Really Caused the Reddit Revolt?
