because Hindley-Milner rocks
Gadzukes! I’ve seen quite a hit to my rep, not that it was much to brag about anyways. At first I thought something had happened to my account. Perhaps some post I had made wound up with -50 bazillion down votes. Instead, they’ve done a total recalculation, see here. To make matters worse all up-votes are +5 instead of +10 but on the bright side you can’t gain rep if the score is negative.
I’ve been so busy at work that I haven’t had time to answer as many SO questions as I had wanted. I used to remove my answers (up-voted included) if there was a better answer. I don’t think I’ll be doing that anymore. Back to the ol’ struggle to 3k. This time, it’s only getting harder.
