Re: NAD v. Netflix: "This is a bad ruling. Really terrible."

I read that post. That is disgusting. The fact that the title is what it
is shows an incredibly callous attitude. It's a weird situation. If that
guy saw a blind man who needed help to cross the street, he'd help - but
when he thinks about "Blind People" in the abstract, helping them is seen
as nothing but an unfair burden. The move from singular to plural seems to
create a mental gap in empathy.

There are such strange people in this world.
