in thread My favorite hoax was:

Hoaxes are only insulting if a) you are taken in by them and b) if you are vain enough to think they are explicitly aimed at injuring you personally.

How arrogantly fascist

They help us to question what we are told, not to take things at face value. If you still think that is a waste of time, well, life's a waste of time.

Sure, and the holocaust was really helpful to the jews.

      fascist, unusually opressive

      arrogantly, with undue pride or self-importance

      deciding for others why hoaxes are insulting, or why life is worth living, arrogantly fascist, like the holocaust

[Corion]: On the upside, I spend a lot of time thinking this weekend about how to actually implement rate limiting for futures, and if things work out, maybe even loading a configuration from an external file makes sense
[Corion]: I've also found some interesting invariants that I have to think/write about more. A simple rate limiter will never change the order of the input, while a limiter that allows for parallel execution will change the order. But my API currently allows for bo
[Corion]: ... for both, and I'm not sure if I want to add the cruft from the parallel API (a token that you need to hold on to while you hold the lock) to the rate limiting API too, to allow seamless up/downgrades, or not.
[Corion]: Also, rate limiting will look great with await: my $token = await $limiter-> limit($hostname); instead of my $f = $limiter->limit( $hostname )->then(sub { my( $token)=@_; ... });
