Submitted by: fancylad 2 months ago in Tech

The editors at Norwegian tech site NRKbeta are taking a bold stand at trolls in their article message boards by making its readers answer a question related to the article they just read before they get to comment. Genius or pains in the ass?

 The common rail system prototype was developed in the late 1960s by Robert Huber of Switzerland and the technology further developed by Dr. Marco Ganser at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich, later of Ganser-Hydromag AG (est.1995) in Ober?geri.
 The first successful usage in a production vehicle began in Japan by the mid-1990s. Dr. Shohei Itoh and Masahiko Miyaki of the Denso Corporation, a Japanese automotive parts manufacturer, developed the Common Rail fuel system for heavy duty vehicles and turned it into practical use on their ECD-U2 common-rail system mounted on the Hino Rising Ranger truck and sold for general use in 1995.[3] Denso claims the first commercial high pressure common rail system in 1995.[4]
Modern common rail systems, whilst working on the same principle sensor are governed by an engine control unit (ECU) which opens each injector electronically rather than mechanically. This was extensively prototyped in the 1990s with collaboration between Magneti Marelli,Centro Ricerche Fiat and Elasis. After research and development by the Fiat Group, the design was acquired by the German companyRobert Bosch GmbH for completion of development and refinement for mass-production Common Rail Nozzle . In hindsight, the sale appeared to be a tactical error for Fiat, as the new technology proved to be highly profitable. The Common Rail Injector Valve had little choice but to sell, however, as it was in a poor financial state at the time and lacked the resources to complete development on its own.[5] In 1997 they extended its use for passenger cars Common Rail Injector . The first passenger car that used the common rail system was the 1997 model Alfa Romeo 156 2.4 JTD,[6] and later on that same year Mercedes-Benz C 220 CDI.
Common Rail Shim & Gasket kit have been used in marine and locomotive applications for some time. The Cooper-Bessemer GN-8 (circa 1942) is an example of a hydraulically operated common rail diesel engine, also known as a modified common rail.

This could be used to weed out people that might make a comment that the sight does not like. Smacks of Intellectual elitism.

fuad119  I had an idea similar to this, it came to me while shaving. But it wouldn't be a quiz on the article, just a general knowledge quiz, designed to screen out idiots and 6,000-year-old-Earth people.

A problem I see is if the article contains opinion, the quiz may ask something that can be misconstrued as fact.

I don't see this as a problem at all.

If you read the article fully and really feel the need to refute it you could give the misconstrued answer just so you can place a comment.

Most people wouldn't do that however. They think that by putting in an answer they don't think is true is some how an admission that the writer is correct.

But the joke is on them. Just because the writer wrote and article doesn't give them the right to judge your opinion.

The quiz is doing exactly what it needs to do to keep out the trolls.
Too much effort for them to read, and the ones that do read cannot stand admitting something contrary to what they believe, even if the answers are not actually recorded anywhere and just used as a form of validation :P

Isn't it what the southern states used to do to prevent black people from voting?

Genius, can we have this here too, for post submissions as well.  Then maybe when someone posts an article about Pence's e-mail getting hacked, they will correctly state that it was his Government e-mail, not his AOL e-mail, that got hacked, and not put that misinformation i to MORE posts later.
