It’s publication day at the cinema, meaning that I will be able to use my brain for non-work things for six weeks until the next set of deadlines comes around.

Question for the internet at large: Do online petitions even do anything? I ask because I want to start a campaign to stop commenting on the CBC’s website. I think that in order to espouse crackpot theories and racist horseshit on the website of a national broadcaster, one should have to write an actual letter and buy a stamp, then be vetted by well-paid humans who will have to arbitrate whether any of that nonsense should be made public. I’d get a million signatures.
