University of Manchester Students' Union bans clapping

Union officer Sara Khan said traditional clapping can cause issues for students with autism, sensory issues or deafness.


You know, what'll finish humanity off, isn't some epic catastrophe, it's PC limpness like this shit.

Also, those who voted are the product of a system to produce and perpetuate said limpness.

Rush Limbaugh had a point yesterday that the left is becoming a collection of mental disorders.

this is a blatant ableist ploy.

because they're replacing clapping with jazz hands, blind people who used to be able to hear the sound will be excluded.

First it's banning clapping, then it's only a very short hop to full blown Eugenics Wars and attempts at world domination my friend.

I learned about virtue signaling, the word gaslighting (didn't know it had a name), and most recently, intermittent explosive disorder (not to be confused with the roadside bomb). Quite a bit of other stuff too, but those are a few highlights.

I am currently learning that switching from amd64 to ~amd64 was either a brilliant move or a massive PITA.

I tried ~amd64 15 or so years ago. Now I'll only reluctantly allow it on a per package basis. Some claim it is better now, but I can say I have not perceived any problems without system-wide ~amd64 enabled.
