Can we have just one thread in HN that doesn't mention Snowden?

Please redirect your shock toward the US government.

And by the way, at the time of writing 27 of the top 30 articles don't mention Snowden in the comments, so...

I'd settle for a top comment that doesn't mention Snowden.

Yes, it's best we forget the whole affair and move on.

It's actually probably best, from the point of view of dealing with the NSA wiretapping, that we forget about Snowden and focus on what the NSA is still doing.

So the comment was both off topic and toxic towards what it wanted to advance.

Snowden: only thing in the world that matters.

There you go! I just used the "up" and "down" arrows, and lo, it came to pass.

I miss when people would submit articles about Erlang to flood out the politics.

Can't have a 2013 HN discussion thread without "Snowden" or "Google Reader". It's a machine-verifiable stamp of authenticity.

I am only upvoting you because I find your comment actually funny!

(Please do not get rid of any Snowden comments/posts on HN until the Police State is dismantled, hopefully by mid-next week.

It's a relevant point.

Feel free to bury your head in the sand.

Just like we cannot have Bootstrap threads without mentioning Foundation.

Bradley Manning!

Isn't this sort of Godwinning the thread? He didn't mention Snowden just for the sake of it, he was making a valid point.
