Replying to a tweet from @jaffathecake

Right. Those are some URLs. Some URLs aren’t easy to understand (sometimes by design, deceptively). We’re in agreement.

But I would never say “humans can’t read URLs” because they can’t read some URLs.

Right, but if I’m asking “can users use URLs to make safety decisions?”, and your answer is “yes! Unless the URL is trying to trick them”, then the actual answer is “no”

Jake, like I said, I really like your proposal. But the way you’re framing it here on Twitter (as opposed to in your video) is reductive and polarising. (Here we are arguing when we agree about the bit that matters—the proposal.) adactio.com/notes/17022
