+ - You said Canola twice: News aggregator Fark adds misogyny ban->

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "The news aggregator Fark is ancient in dot com terms. Users submit news links to the privately run site and tear it — and each other — to pieces in the discussion threads. (Sound familiar?) While the site isn't as popular as during the early 2000s, the privately run discussion forum has continued and has its champions. "Adam Savage once described to me the problem this way: if the Internet was a dude, we'd all agree that dude has a serious problem with women" site operator Drew Curtis announced today. Gifs, references, jokes and comments involving sexism will be deleted. Give how bare-knucked how Fark can be, is it time? Overdue?"
