There are several good examples of this from 2010/2011 in comments on Liminal States. This was before they changed the behavior to hide how many votes each comment had so it really gives a clear picture of community sentiment. There are examples of gender, ageism, and civil liberties [a place where HN's techno-libertariasm clashes with the "let's not talk about civil liberties here" attitude).
