J-dawg on May 4, Why do posts like this get flagged so often?
It seems like perfectly valid HN content. Do flagged posts get reviewed by moderators, or does HN allow a minority of users to flag whatever they want out of existence? With even more flags the story may be killed. The mods usually take a look at the stream of post, specialy the flagged ones, but there are too many posts and in case you find something classified too fdom you can them hn ycombinator.
My guess here is that some users flagged it because the incel angle. It looks like a exaggeration, but I'm still not sure. So I'm not hitting any buttons here [no upvote, no flag, no to the mods].
Now they have been acquired and they must pose as a frmo business, so they delete the old posts that are too polemic or politically incorrect, so I'm not sure that there is a connection or not. They could have made it an interactive data exploration site to compare this to attractiveness! Just get off of these awful sites and programs.
They profit off the worst traits of humanity and it seems their blog as well. There is nothing scientific or useful that can come from their data or supposed insights. The first step in the right direction was to delete the post.
Can you imagine how lazy, distracted and confused are the users of these apps are in real life? Just stick to the real-world, screen the square root of as many people as you could ever meet in your remaining life-expectancy and pick the best one that comes along next. No Paradox of Choice.
Just action. Hence they turn to dating sites to try to make connections. I grew up in the s and 90s.
There were no dating apps, just classified 'want to meets' in the newspaper and they were expensive and fruitless. I didn't have a first date until I was 30, it took that long to find someone who was interested.
Even if they don't find a life partner, just getting one or two dates can be a huge boost to esteem. Because one is desirable and receives okcupie on dating apps.
Because one is a young digital native nerd with a lack of social skills. Or both.
