German twitter, in a nutshell:
Person A: You know, studies show that a speed limit of 130 km/h on the Autobahn would cause fewer people per year to die from accidents, and it would also be better for the environment! We should institute a speed limit, like every other European country.
Person B: No! Banning things is never the answer. If you really feel that driving slower would help, then you can choose to do that yourself.
@typeoff his first question almost implies that, but that’s not what he is saying. And it really has nothing to do with his age.
@atilla … (few printers or typesetters in the late ’80s were in favor of the DTP tools he championed in PAGE, to name one example). I do think that he has become more reactionary over time. I should have listened to @kupfers and unfollowed him years ago, but this was the straw that broke my back, so to speak.
