    1. oicing can alsoentail publicly calling ‘bullshit on bullshit’ orseeking help from an outside agency, such as aunion or government office.

Such conditions are necessary foreffectively confronting bullshit. A principle knownas Brandolini’s Law states that the amount of en-ergy needed to refute bullshit is an order ofmagnitude larger than is needed to produce it(“Brandolini’s Law,” 2014).

    1. Progress is made of compromises, this implies that we have to consider not only disadvantages, but also the advantages. Advantages do very clearly outweigh disadvantages.

This is an opportunity to fix a bug: if you're on a page that redirects to a login page if there's no user object, or otherwise preloads data specific to that user, then logging out won't automatically update the page — you could easily end up with a page like HOME ABOUT LOG IN ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Secret, user-specific data that shouldn't be visible alongside a 'log in' button:

    1. The epub:type attribute [ContentDocs32] is REQUIRED

      Discerning the available values of epub:type is a tangle... The referenced epub:type related section in the ContentDocs32 document references the Vocabulary Association paragraph which in turn references the Vocabulary Association Mechanisms section within this current document. From that section the default vocabulary can/may be found, but there is no reference there (or in any of these other sections) to the available epub:type values nor to their "meaning"/value to the author or implementer.

      However, just below this in the example (and above in relation to pagebreak there is a link directly to the defining defaults in the EPUB-SSV.

      It would be helpful for authors and implementers to know first about the SSV list, and then about the ability to extend the vocabulary.

    2. The page-list nav element SHOULD contain only a single ol descendant (i.e., no nested sublists).

      If this SHOULD is not heeded...what happens? How is the page list calculated if there is a hierarchy present?

    3. Each list item

      Reference the li element here for consistency.
