I question the assumption that youth requires blinders, but have no problem with self-inflicted censorship. I'm opposed to the idea of any form of filtering that isn't opt-in.

Not that I'm fond of reading a lot of cursing, but at the moment, I don't think there is a lot. When we start seeing a lot in posts, it probably means there are a lot of other problems, where profanity is merely a symptom.

True, one place where there is swearing is in the keyword nodelet. I usually ignore it with the intention of removing it next time I edit my preferences because it just makes pages longer. Re-reading the intention of the nodelet, I think it's failing to fulfil its purpose. I think fixing it is a much better alternative than filtering it. As a temporary measure, people who are bothered by it could always remove it from their nodelets without losing any functionality.

[Corion]: Meh. My bank removed (part of) their CSV download facilities. Now I will either have to implement a full scraper or automate the download using the HBCI interface instead (or just get a new account elsewhere...)
[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)=@_; ... });
