    Hacker News is the least ‘hacker’ any webpage has ever been…

      Ah, sorta like how Newsmax has a minimum of actual news?

        Well, I’d actually even go so far as that it’s actively non-hacker. The original meaning of ‘hacker’ is someone who’s good at problem solving, but often especially used in the context of free/open-source software, so always with an air of anti-capitalism.

        Well, Hacker News is hosted by a Venture Capital firm. They also inject their own “news” onto the Hot page.

        Well, and that’s also then reflected in the kind of users that hang out there. As it turns out, they should have called it “Techbro News”…
