Yet another weird SF fan


I'm a mathematician, a libertarian, and a science-fiction fan. Common sense? What's that?

Uniformity Is in the Eye of the Beholder

Sarah Hoyt is complaining about the apparent uniform leftism among SF writers (seen via Transterrestrial Musings). I have also seen a complaint on Usenet about the apparent uniform libertarianism among SF fans. Apparently, uniformity is in the eye of the beholder.

By the way, I have a couple of complaints.

A complaint about Google

At first, I tried inserting a link by going to Google groups Advanced Search and looking up the Message ID: 9adbr3$2jj$1@panix6.panix.com only to get the following error message:

We're sorry, but we were unable to find the topic you were looking for. Perhaps the URL you clicked on is out of date or broken?
I had to search through the thread page by page to find the message.

A complaint about WordPress

I tried posting a comment about the Usenet thread at Transterrestrial Musings only to find it was rejected by WordPress on the grounds it looked “spammy.” I had to post the comment without a link.
