Professionally, I work in communication and data-driven decision-making. In January, I start a program called "Leveraging AI for effective decision-making" at the MIT, but virtually from home.
Recently, I exchanged emails with Matthias from Team Liquid. I don't know what position he has, but I asked him a question regarding a browser extension which hides spoilers until the user decides to remove them. Personally, I use two browsers. On Mozilla, I used uBlock Origin to block any areas that could include spoilers and Chrome for logging in and commenting on posts.
What made and makes Starcraft (talking about both games) so special is that it is a place where the absolute best players face off in a game that is better than chess, football (or soccer for you strange people on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean) and possibly even Go. They could earn much more money in less competitive games. And, in a time of war, they come from many different countries, that fight wars and have political tensions or trade wars. Chinese, American, European and Russian players compete peacefully. Not even the Olympics can claim that. And tl.net is still the heart of that scene. This is a place of hope, of competition, and an example the world should notice.
But we have to start somewhere. Starcraft wasn't fully destroyed by money, and the scene is striving. I'm still watching Group B in the round of 8 of the last GSL and if you spoiler me I will dream of unpleasant things I won't do to you but would very much like to do.
You guys are younger and smarter than me. So, is anyone out there with an idea how we could start building a browser extension that prevents spoilers on tl.net without removing the option to log in, browse and comment on tl.net?
