Should slow typists have full human rights?

A difficult thing to consider, for sure. But if an objective measure like average typing speed across >400 games shows someone is not as good as someone else, it is hard to want that poor typist to be able to do things like vote, have freedom of speech, live among competent typists, etc.

Discuss.

No, if your WPM is below 90, I honestly think sterilization or euthanasia is the best course of action. We really can't afford to have slow typists in the gene pool in this information age.

Seconded, as someone who can't type above 40 wpm and above 80% accuracy I wholeheartedly support this statement. Take my balls away and throw me to the river, I implore you. TAKE MY BALLS.

Long live user coolby, our prophet and messiah. May their wisdom lead us to glory. It was about time for someone to show up and see how much better we are than everyone else. Praise the TTMR (touch typist master race).

Btw, if you still need an executioner I'll gladly cut all the slow typists in pieces.

5705412- interesting take. How many person-hours per day do you think are spent typing? It is easily in the hundreds of millions, possibly billions. Per day. I would say it is very important, indicative of your inherent worth. Now, in response to the the posed question, we have had some great thoughts. They have been generally supportive. I would hate for you to fall on the wrong side of any revolution. Consider ...typing... out your evolution of thoughts on this matter. It might help.

If the people choose me, I will lead them, and I will not need anyone to dictate typed messages to.
