That link doesn't work for me. Besides, I've heard that it's better not to click through a link as HN either rates it lower or flags it as spam. Not sure though, I'm just contributing to cargo cult... :) Ali

Strange because its the same link that was used in the reddit topic. Its just Belgium Youtube link ( owned by Google in the whois, so fairly sure its official :) ).

That worked. Thanks. I recommend others not to click on the link but search for "competitive advantage with d" on the main page instead: https://news.ycombinator.com/news Ali

Posting direct HN links in any forum is a sure way to have the entry classified as spam (HN uses an algorithm that flags as spam many accesses that do not have their own site as referrer). -- Andrei

*uch* What a strange system they use. Good to know for the future. Delete my posts above with the link, so the link is removed. That will solve the issue of people going directly to the article.

Indeed, there is no special thread. I'd say for the more relaxed reddit audience it can be put like this: the GC isn't "running" at all. Not persistently, not at all times, not in any special thread. It is not actively scanning anything. Any allocation on GC heap made by *any* thread *may* cause a collection, which is performed there and then in the same thread that triggered said allocation, and is observed as part of that allocation. All registered threads except the one that triggered the allocation (and thus, collection) are paused for scanning and resumed afterwards. Threads not registered with the runtime or those that were explicitly detached from the runtime are expected to not hold any pointers to the GC heap, and are neither paused nor scanned.
