Hoi,
Humans are overrated. I saw this answer on Facebook [1] and [2] compare the
two and tell me why we accept the bias in our editors. Why are we satisfied
with what we write about when there is more to inform about. Remember what
we aim to achieve. It does not say text, it says share the sum of all
knowledge.
Thanks,
        GerardM
