>I just don't think that's necessarily the primary reason it has been upvoted.

So do you always assume bad faith on the part of others or..?

Good or bad faith doesn't enter into it.

Being biologically biased is not "bad faith", is just a well known human trait.

This seems to imply it can't be fixed (if it can, why do you assume the worst now?). If it is something that can't be fixed, what's the point of your bringing it up?

Biologically biased doesn't mean it can be changed; for example we are biologically biased to be polygamous just like most mammals; but we are socially configured to be monogamous so most of us are.

So how do you know that the majority of people who voted this article up aren't already there? I have to be honest, your post strikes me as karma fishing.

How do I know the most upvoted article of the year holds that position because the sexual nature of its content? What a tought question.

You don't know. Period. It could be. Isn't it also remotely possible that this was a hardware hack and a pretty inventive and effective one?
