I was trying to figure out why they were calling a conduct policy that had a section against trans abuse as "hateful". Then I realized it was a bad title to the article. On the actual topic, I have to say that people that use abusive language against anyone don't check the website's written policy before using it. I don't care whether or not it's in writing but rather what they do about it when it happens. As usual, journalists and liberals are focusing attention on the part that doesn't matter.

Because ALL platforms for communication should have an explicit listing of rules and a list of what lines once crossed will get people removed. This act is explicitly stating that they will no longer remove people for harassing trans people. That isn't a 'part that doesn't matter'. It's an intentional step towards normalizing attacks against trans people.

Now if only they'd remove the rest...

Why do you think anyone wants to hang around in a place that hates them, or that advertisers would pay to have their brand next to hate?

One of the defenses from many of the acolytes on why Tesla would reign supreme over all other automakers was that (for the past year or two) Teslas were rated by at least one survey as the most profitable automobiles. The profitability was coming from expensive software upgrades that many Silicon Valley tech workers at the time didn't mind dropping 5-digits on at the time as well as some of the EV incentives. That kind of profitability is transitory and easily eroded from any number of directions (competition, decline in number of tech workers and others feeling insecure about their finances, government changes to incentives, etc.). Compare that to the profitability of Apple that comes from a combination of very refined logistics and manufacturing supported by an ecosystem that Apple has successfully built, defended, and improved to maintain that walled moat. Back on the automobile side, luxury makers like Mercedes also topped the profitability chart - because they've developed and defended a niche rather than claiming to take on the whole automobile industry.
