Matt... I apologise. I commented on yours before reading every other comment and I have to say you're right about Antonia's lack of allowing a debate or someone to have an opinion.
That said, I don't think it's fair to say DN would be a better place without her. There are better ways in which you could have explained your point (like you have done in your response to me). I don't feel it's a reason to say she isn't allowed to voice her view on DN as that would contradict what I have just said about someone being able to have an opinion.
Oh and I agree with your analogy!
It would end up being massively abused. I did once agree with the idea of downvoting, but due voting rings and competition between websites that want to show similar content, you would end up with more issues. I guess the same argument can be said for upvoting?!
This would never be censored. Stories and/or comments are only removed if they don't follow the guidelines (which I'm not too sure a lot of users have seen).
The idea of DN being toxic towards females is absolute nonsense. DN as a community is welcoming of anyone. There are some individuals who disagree with that, but let it be known.. that is not the community's view as a whole.
It's like saying I have a loaf of bread here and one slice has gone mouldy, the whole loaf must therefore be fucked... I'm gonna go find some new bread... rather than just throwing the mouldy piece in the bin!
I would really rather you would stay and help remove these 'slices of mouldy bread'!
To answer you're question about other community sources, I'd recommend using Panda as it gives a list of multiple sources some relevant to design, some not - but that's the beauty of it.
Are you taking the piss? Please say you're joking...
And what a year it was!
Personally, I'm a huge fan of
They seem to be well ahead of their competition and are constantly improving their product!
It's deffo there, just an imgur link issue I think. Now re-saved it, but by all means the joke is now ruined haha!
