I kind of wanted to believe that bizarre paper that scraped Mastodon was just translated from Italian and it actually wasn't the total nonsense that it appeared to be... But no. It's just utter crap.

This is what you get when you let STEM majors believe humanities and social sciences are unimportant and also let them run the world.


Humanities: the semantic meaning of content warnings might be complex, vary depending on context, and may not be apparent on their face.

Social sciences: people use systems in unique and surprising ways, and biases you bring and impose on your research will blind you to them. You should definitely studies carefully to mitigate that effect.

STEM majors: we had a brain genius idea, ran some stolen info through an algorithm, and came to an infallible conclusion. Where's our money?

@lawremipsum English is not your primary language, is it?

Aside: I majored in social studies and political science, then went on to be a software architect and data analyst. So I recognize both sides of that coin in my own behavior. How jarring!
