The point is that we don't want duplicate content, even if it's at slightly different URLs.

I think the counter-point was that it may actually be different content. How often that is the case, I don't know, but assuming it will never happen doesn't necessarily seem like a great idea.

-----


Maybe the system should actually check what's at each page.

And you should read more carefully. I did not suggest the thing you say is a bad idea.

First they'd need to have an idea of what intelligence is. At which point they could probably write a simple AI anyway.

I hope no one is shot.

Don't feed the trolls, especially not with long posts.

Lists are for authors who can't figure out what's important and emphasize it. It's just a long, monotone drawl that abdicates some thinking.

-----


That's why lists are coming from sites like Lifehack and Cracked, which are really sorta second-rate sites to begin with.

Yeah. Guess posting the entire thing on one page got around that system.

-----


An accident. I saw it on proggit, and the first thing I did was check the front page to see if it was already here so I could read the comments and maybe add my 2c. I assumed it would already have been posted, I just failed to assume it would have been posted 171 days ago!

As for the one page thing, isn't that the "standard?" If not, please post the printable versions or one page versions of stories like this. Why page through an article just to cause exaggerated page views and ad impressions for someone with an old-school magazine business model???

-----


No, I agree. I much prefer one-page posts. The the OP didn't, and that's why the system let it through.

-----


The article gives you the option of seeing it all in one page, right next to the links to other pages.

Free trade.

Just don't eat when not hungry.

Most people eat large quantities of food all at once. Stop half way and wait 20 minutes and you might not be hungry anymore. If you eat too quickly then you don't know at what point you'd eaten enough to satisfy your hunger.

-----


This only works for people who have their "hunger point" properly calibrated to when they should actually stop eating.

Some folks don't stop feeling hungry until well after they should have stopped eating, leading them to eat way too many calories.

John Walker explains this concept in his "The Eat Watch" chapter here: http://www.fourmilab.ch/hackdiet/e4/eatwatch.html

So how do you move it down? Fast for a few days?

-----


You don't change your hunger point.

You change your behavior, taking into account that your hunger point is lying to you.

You stop eating before you feel full.

You look up how many calories you should be eating and how much you want to lose. (3500 calories = 1 pound of fat; if you maintain a 500 calorie deficit every day, you'll lose a pound a week).

You weigh yourself every day, using signal processing techniques to remove random variations in your weight caused by water and reveal the trendline of where your weight is headed.

You then adjust your consumption based on where your weight is headed. Trendline sloping upwards? Eat fewer calories.

If you do this for a long time, your hunger point may change. It may not. But you don't care about your hunger point, you care about eating the right amount of food. The key insight is to realize that your hunger point may be lying to you, so you need to get an accurate hunger point. Walker describes how to do this in his book, combining signal processing with dieting.

Why do you close outlook...?

To save resources?

Wrong question.
