Eh. I finally joined after hearing about this place over the years on They’ve gotten absurd with their rules, not to mention that the company itself is a husk of its former self.
This place seems more mature, but not as active?

Tribalism. Political Bias. Political convenience.
Plus, I think a lot more people are outraged about it than can be seen.  Hollywood and the mainstream media went bonkers during the MeToo movement and during the Kavanaugh situation, but have hardly made a peep in regards to Biden. Since the media isn’t covering it, you aren’t seeing as much of a response on social media either.

It’s like attorneys in a court case
Each are asserting competing narratives
Draw attention to and emphasize the facts, ideas, questions, timeline, etc that promote the validity of your story.
Ignore and downplay those that contradict or conflict with the story you’re promoting.

Serious / Re: Self taught education vs Academia

I would recommend getting into a trade. Depending on the trade, you can usually find one that gives you on the job training and paid education. And you tend to start making “big boy” money a lot sooner.

Then after that, i would recommend pursuing a degree for sheer interest and personal achievement... you know, like they used to. That or just get one according to whatever helps you in your fields of interest.

I don’t know if it exists (it should and may in some fields) but I have heard of aptitude or competency tests that you can take that help reveal how well you know the accredited/acceptable information and skills.

I feel that the value of Academia has become inflated and politicized, however there is some merit in some fields as they adhere to important industry and safety standards, for example.  But then again, degrees that move further and further away from hard application tend to be more nebulous and subjective.

I’d be down for a self-taught type of program that competes with Academia that promotes competency and adherence to same standards as academia, while offering a cheap and more efficient alternative.

They’re hit or miss, like regular American shows.
But the ones i take a liking to are more story/character driven and aren’t as sitcommy as American shows.
