Open Thread: Complaints & Grievances

Just a quick note: In the past few days, I’ve had several complaints about the auto-playing video ads on the right sidebar. Rest assured, I find them just as annoying as you all do. I’ve written to the management at Big Think, and I’ve had assurances that they’ve already been changed so that the sound is muted by default. If you find that this isn’t the case, please let me know.

On a somewhat related note, if you’ve been following the saga of Edwina Rogers, you’ll probably want to read Greta Christina’s latest post, summing up her personal thoughts on her two interviews with Rogers and with Roy Speckhardt of the SCA board. Let’s just say you don’t want to incur Greta’s displeasure! Personally, I’d like most of all to see an official response to this controversy from the SCA board; their silence so far has been stark.

Consider this an open thread. What else has been bothering you that you’d like to complain, gripe, grouse, vent spleen, or otherwise raise well-founded objections to?
