Another take on the scrolling navigation pattern. However you feel about the implementation details, it’s got to better than the “teenage tidying” method of shoving everything behind a hamburger icon.

Fortune magazine published a list of all the companies who say hate groups can’t use their services anymore:
- Discover Financial Services,
- Discord, and
Digital Ocean aren’t listed in the article but they’ve also cut off the oxygen to hate groups that were using their platform.
There’s another company that I wish were on that list: Shopify. They provide Breitbart with its online store. That’s despite clause three of their Acceptable Usage Policy:
Hateful Content: You may not offer goods or services, or post or upload Materials, that condone or promote violence against people based on race, ethnicity, color, national origin, religion, age, gender, sexual orientation, disability, medical condition or veteran status.
The flimsy free speech defence looks even more spineless in light of the actions of other companies.
I’m incredibly disappointed in Shopify. I’m starting to have misgivings about appearing at events or on podcasts sponsored by Shopify—being two degrees of separation away from the hatefulness of Breitfart doesn’t sit well with me.
I sincerely hope that Shopify will change their stance, enforce their own terms of service, and dropify hate speech.

"The sharp increase has been attributed to smokers keeping themselves occupied as they're forced outdoors and away from their mates. Many are also turning to their phones as a distraction and a way to avoid temptation."
