Comment: Re:Notify CTO, CFO & CEO offices (Score 2) 230 230

This should not have been modded "Funny"; it's actually a very good strategy. I got taken off a corporate spam list (HP) by contacting "Office of the President". Nothing else I tried would work. Got a similar result with my ban when I couldn't get the payout amount for my mortgage. It was a reasonable request, but I was stonewalled - so I contacted the Pres. Got called back the same day with all the info I needed.

OK so violence at many levels is down. Someone has already mentioned economic inequality, and that's certainly a trend in the wrong direction. And power is increasingly in the hands of a few who are increasingly entrenched. Climate change, pollution, loss of habitat and loss of species are at crisis levels. Recovery will take hundreds of thousands of years! The oceans are becoming a sterile garbage dump. The very concept of privacy is being pushed aside.

Not to mention that violent crime and rape are at their lowest level since the 70's. The world is an awesome place now

That's a very narrow assessment.

Getting the job done is no excuse for not following the rules. Corollary: Following the rules will not get the job done.
