By enabling MitM and code injection against users on public networks. That's definitely the right thing to do.

i am serious. a box which is just running nginx and serving funy pages has not "already been hacked and is already serving malware" just because you only occasionally update it rather than actively following security bulletins.

until about two or three years ago i had a fairly popular webserver running debian 6 that somehow managed to not get hacked or spread malware.

Uh if you're saying "my dumb website shouldn't need https" that's one thing but if you're literally saying it's better for a given website to have both http and https rather than ideally just being able to have https (aside from practical reasons websites might not be doing this yet) then lol.

Reading this thread, one of two things must be true.
1. HN commenters simply refuse to read articles.
2. The average HN commenter is extremely stupid.
The idea that Twitter Ads are somehow the right place for scientific peer review to happen is so absurdly stupid that I can't imagine that either 1 or 2 is not blatantly true, if not both. Otherwise, I have no explanation for the comments talking about censorship, problems with academic publishing, etc.

Underlying problem is that Nintendo has a non-viable business model combined with a culture that tolerates things like rigid work hours and low pay. They can't make life better for employees because their business model sucks.
The correct thing is to simply not work for them.

"they can't make life better for employees"

by the context it sounds like he's referring to the infamous japanese constant overwork.

Yeah. And right now, it's easy to lambast Google for having horrible gamed search results, but is it even theoretically possible to create an automated search ranking which can't be gamed? You're trying to outmaneuver the entire tech world.
