Comment: Silly citizen, only government can evidence (Score 1) 764

This is the same mentality of those people who are scared of Google Glass and go all Internet tough guy about what they'd do to people wearing one.

People who believe in pecking orders, ie. bullies, identify with authority, even if they rebel against it, and those in authority believe in pecking orders, and so see bullying as enforcing the natural order.

The unifying attribute of all people like this is that they are ashamed of themselves. Not in any way that might modify their beliefs or actions, but in a way that they blame others for their faults and react belligerently to anyone who might capture evidence of them. So of course they're going to punish the kid for recording.

Ted Unangst wrote a good article called "analysis of openssl freelist reuse"

His analysis:

This bug would have been utterly trivial to detect when introduced had the OpenSSL developers bothered testing with a normal malloc (not even a security focused malloc, just one that frees memory every now and again). Instead, it lay dormant for years until I went looking for a way to disable their Heartbleed accelerating custom allocator.

it's a very good read.

The average person shouldn't need to buy some complicated piece of software or hire a witchdoctor to determine their financial obligations to the state. The system is a pitiful mess, and vested interests are working hard to keep it that way. When you appoint me emperor, you can bet I'll fix that up right good.

Money is the root of all wealth.
