Probably doing any kind of automated mass filtering is going to get screwed up. But it's hard to imagine things being more screwed up than what's described for Facebook's internal censor/don't censor protocols: https://www.propublica.org/article/facebook-hate-speech-censorship-internal-documents-algorithms
@thor There's also a pretty simple supply-side market incentive to keep people eating more calories, whereas the number of calories humans need per day is fixed.

I reposted a piece about the Nestle CEO claiming that people don't have a right to water. But I noticed that I didn't know or trust the news source so I did some more digging.

Here's a hidden gem for video game authors: Dr Petter's sfxr. http://www.drpetter.se/project_sfxr.html
8 bit video game sound effect generator! And it's free software. Also an interesting article about sound effect synthesis http://www.drpetter.se/article_sound.html
Please boost 🍍 and give it a go!
srfi-34 and srfi-35 condition system stuff is a nice way to handle errors. I like the combination of single inheritance and composite types, especially being able to define a composite type at raise-time. A good fit for exceptions.
It can export to a variety of formats usable in game engines or other 3D #modelling tools, and can also be used just for the sake a producing nice pictures :)
