comment Rate vs Like/Dislike
@supercat Maybe, maybe not. My point was mostly that the answer is based on a very strong assumption (your comment is itself pretty affirmative, yet does not line up very well with the answer I think). Modern psychology does mostly treat liking as a continuous dimensions, incidentally.

comment How many clicks is too few?
If the number of clicks is negative, something is definitely wrong. Other than that, there are things you will want to keep even with 0 clicks (say legal requirements) so you can't just blindly remove things below a certain threshold.

@DavidRicherby “In almost all cases” does not imply that it's impossible, just uncommon.

comment Argument for/against splitting login process into checking username, then ask password?
Online banking at my bank used to work exactly that way (Go to “online banking” -> Enter details and move to next page -> Enter one-time code). Now, they still use two factor verification but it's all in a popover on the home page so it seems that multiple page ID wasn't an absolute requirement.

comment Why do people clear the screen multiple times when using a calculator?
It's quite possible that there are multiple reasons for this behavior but the ones you mention do not seem to explain anything at all. They would just as well apply to pressing any other key or manipulating any other object, yet the question is why do people (seem to) do it more often in this particular situation?

comment Traffic lights: why yellow before green?
Incidentally, in Europe, most of the time, you can't see the cross-street's lights.

comment Traffic lights: why yellow before green?
@jimp Historically, it was really the government advocating a manual start/stop. With a start/stop feature, you don't really need a warning, you just release the brakes and the motor starts.

@Espen No, no, hill start is practice as part of normal driving instruction in France, too… but with the handbrake as it is considered to be the proper method. The other one is for bad drivers who don't know better ;-)

comment Does a country specific top level domain (TLD) affect perception of a (non-US) community site?
I would think it depends a lot on the country, especially considering the fact that ccTLD are also managed differently from country to country.
