Crowdfunding campaigns for unproven stem cell treatments exaggerate the benefits and underemphasize the risks, all the while raising considerable funds and generating social media buzz.

@amWhy @XanderHenderson: I have less hope in Math SE than I once did, mainly because it is still part of SE.
 
I am beginning to feel similarly. The "be nice" policy seems to do very little to actually ensure that people being nice, and does quite a lot to protect disruptive and unhealthy behaviour
 
@XanderHenderson It's simply because nice people will hardly try to use the be-nice policy to hit at others, while the other kind of people will use anything they can.
@XanderHenderson: The other problem is that we don't actually have the tools. If we actually use the tools correctly, we will simply be criticized.

@XanderHenderson: I think AOC was excessive in that last action.
 
Yeah...
 
Just too bad.
@Did: Hello! Here you can find plenty of real-world information, though you probably already know much of them.

@user21820 Just discovered it. Seems pretty interesting, thanks. Keep up the good work, here and elsewhere! :-)

@user21820 I understand. I vacillate between no hope and meager hope, and today was certainly a day representing some of the worst aspects of MSE.
The "be nice to me" complainers don't seem to have much insight: i.e., they're habitually not nice to those trying to help, and not nice to those trying to give a great gift that they won't see: honest appraisal.
@user21820 Keep up the good work, as Did encouraged!

Can anyone here educate me as to how a room owner may cancel stars that do not appear on the lower right column? When I click on "show all" on CRUDE, all I get are posts with stars with a link. The only way I seem to have succeeded (be nice to me if this is a silly question) is when clicking on the upside down triangle which appears after starred/pinned posts to the lower right. One then can cancel stars or unpin. In Crude, there are some stars crying out for cancellation!
