Godfrey Elfwick (who was banned from Twitter) welcomes her back. (I suspect that the same person is behind both satire accounts.)
Reflections from Titania xirself:
Indeed, Twitter’s modus operandi appears to involve routinely silencing those who defend social justice and enabling those who spread hate. In my short time on the platform, I have regularly come across hate speech from the sort of unreconstructed bigots who believe that there are only two genders, or that Islam is not a race. It’s got to the point where if someone doesn’t have “anti-fascist” in their bio, it’s safest to assume that they’re a fascist.
The permanent suspension only lasted for a day, but the experience was traumatic and lasting. I now understand how Nelson Mandela felt. If anything, my ordeal was even more damaging. Mandela may have had to endure 27 years of incarceration, but at least his male privilege protected him from ever having to put up with mansplaining, or being subject to wolf-whistling by grubby proles on a building site.
She is a true martyr.
Teaching techniques on patients who can actually provide feedback.
What a concept. I’m continually amazed at the stupid things the medical profession does, just because “that’s how we’ve always done it.” I also think there remains a lot of rampant sexism in the profession, with deleterious effects on womens’ health.
Good riddance to it.
I disagree about pre-existing conditions, though. That requirement completely screws up the insurance markets. We need a different solution for that issue.
Thoughts from Tim Ball on ad homimem and ad verecundiam.
Will Gavin Newsom finally put an end to the not-so-high-speed madness?
It’s shutting down, after twenty-three years. Probably a victim of its anti-Trump behavior.
Here are the three pieces that I wrote for it, the most recent being my obituary of Jerry Pournelle. When I read my criticism of SLS from 2011, it seems prescient.
There’s a lot of talent there, from Steve Hayes to Adam Keiper and Jonathan Last, and Haley Byrd. Hopefully they’ll land on their feet.
Thoughts from Rod Dreher.
I suspect that if we settle space, we’ll see a lot of this sort of thing in some of the environments.
Yes. Asymmetric? Not so much.

Looks like Mueller and Weismann may be up to some hanky panky: The case of the missing/altered 302s.
[Update a couple minutes later]
And Mueller destroyed the Strzok-Page texts before the IG could review them. How convenient.
Maybe I should start taking it:
“If we consider our results and then we also consider what results have been achieved in clinical trials with cystic fibrosis patients, we are probably looking at the same mechanism(s), whereby antibiotics are removing inflammatory senescent cells and boosting healthy ones.
“Undoubtedly, our results have significant implications for potentially alleviating or reversing tissue dysfunction and slowing the development of many ageing-associated diseases,” explains Professor Federica Sotgia, a co-lead of this study.
…pled guilty to something that is not a crime.
Despite all of the jean creaming among the Democrats and other Never Trumpers over this, it’s pretty weak tea, and has nothing to do with Russian collusion. I find Trump despicable, but if he were on trial for this, I’d vote to acquit.
