Shitposts Weekly (2019/01/05)

Medium articles neither rare nor well-done for the week ending 05 January 2019.

What exactly is Node.js?: A webshit shits webshit at length to try to explain the worst software to ever disgrace the internet.

Keep it Simple with the Strategy Design Pattern: A webshit shits webshit about objectionably-oriented programming. This webshit explains how to produce modular components badly. I will leave it up to the reader to determine whether the modular components are produced badly or the explanation itself is shit.

Holding a Grudge Can Be Good for You: A self-help booklet claims that holding a grudge can be a good thing, not realising that they’re talking about memories and not actual grudges.

Rare articles which are well-done.

The Lifespan of a Lie: A writer and doctor explores the Stanford prison experiment, and how it had the effect of normalizing and excusing shitty behaviour. “It’s just human nature to be sadistic sacks of shit to people in captivity,” my fucking ass.

Why Reply-All Emails Are Always the Wrong Move: A professional shitposter takes aim at the worst UX decision ever made: defaulting to ‘reply all’ on emails with multiple recipients.

The Return of Handwriting: A journalist takes a look at a recent rebirth of fancy-ass unreadable garbage writing techniques. Please let cursive die, people. Please. Its only real purpose is teaching people how to develop a signature, and that doesn’t require encouraging people to write shittily in the name of ‘style’.

How Sexual Assault Survivors Are Redefining Pleasurable Sex: A journalist and sexual assault survivor looks at how survivors take charge once more and reclaim an activity that was tarnished by shitheads.
