Re: Women on this board

A risk is the probability of a negative outcome that may be avoided or minimized by preemptive action. No, that's not right. I don't know where you got this idea from. Strip out the last 9 words, and your definition would be fairly accurate. When you buy a lottery ticket, you are accepting a very h...

Re: Women on this board

Assume that you are cutting bread, but you know that you're not very handy with a knife. As in your statistic example, 80% of the time you cut right through the bread. But 20% of the time you cut yourself in the hand. This is no longer a risk that might happen, it's an accepted part of your process...

Re: Spore

I remember Spore as that game that everyone got excited about a few years ago, then quickly lost interest in. Actually, I think it was this forum where I first heard about it, or maybe it was the UQM forum. There were even a couple people trying to recreate Star Control races in it. Never actually p...

Re: Women on this board

In any given situation he has a set percentage chance of misgendering happening, but over an extended time of conversing, it is a given fact that it will happen. Regardless of whether he uses "he", "she" or switches between them, in the long run he is going to be misgendering people. You can't look...

Re: Women on this board

Imagine your leg is stuck in a bear trap. You need to get free, so you're going to have to cut it off. You know that your desired outcome will have a consequence; losing your foot. It's not a risk, something that might happen if things don't play out right. It's a direct effect of you freeing yours...

Re: Women on this board

But since you're aware of this automatic process, can you really call it unintenional? Reflexive sure, instinctual, sure. But unintentional? I can't say I follow your reasoning here. "Unintentional" means "without intent". If you are aware of it after the fact, it doesn't follow that it's what you ...

Re: Age of the account

If by "new board" you mean this one, and not the old one based on SMF, it was launched around 2009/2010, not 2004.

Re: Women on this board

Singular "they" has tradition behind it, but I think some people misplace its traditional prevalence. It's always been common to use it to refer to a non-specific person . For example, in the case of words like "everyone", "someone", or "who". But as far as I can tell, using it to refer to a specifi...
