comment Does the hover functionality on Netflix's website break UI best practice?
@plainclothes Netflix is primarily a passive experience - some menus that take you to a video where you don't have to interact with it again at all. It can absolutely, and should be, totally keyboard accessible. Why would anyone think it acceptable for a site like that to discriminate against people with disabilities?

comment Does the hover functionality on Netflix's website break UI best practice?
@plainclothes many people use keyboard. The great thing about technology is that it can be inclusive for anyone. To basically say "I don't care about people unless they are using a mouse" is kind of ignorant.

comment Why do modern keyboards have Scroll Lock?
Also - why Scroll Lock? It doesn't sound like this action has anything to do with locking the scroll. It sounds more like they used the Scroll Lock key for this feature because that keyboard key doesn't have another useful use. That's not really a reason to keep it around.

Do you have a proposal for another way to handle it? Just expire the bounty if you don't want to assign it to something?

comment Should I hide the details of banned users?
There might be legal ramifications to not allowing banned people access to their details. That's something I'd want to confirm if it were me building this.
