Comment Re:Parents should be liable (Score 1) 254

It's hilarious that you've deluded yourself into believing that your desperate little attempts at changing the topic might actually have some sort of significance.

Here, have a reality check: unlike you with your pitiable fixation on selective quoting, most of the rest of the page is actually managing to talk about about the topic of TFA, the literally life-and-death issue of the recent rise in entirely preventable diseases killing people, traceable to the equally the recent impact of antivaxxer lunacy on public health.

*yawns again* I suppose this is what I get for feeding a troll. No more food for you from me. Toddle off back under your bridge and starve.

Do you have any evidence that shows that 'can't' is less dangerous than 'refusal?'

Easy, what are the numbers of anti-vaxxer morons vs. the numbers of people who have actual medical reasons not to vaccinate? Dimes to dollars the former is more numerous than the latter.

Even if anti-vaxxers aren't more numerous, they have already had demonstrable negative impact on public health, as shown by the obvious fact that infectious diseases were not recurring in the population prior to the recent rise of anti-vaxxer lunacy.

*yawn* All of which is why I said almost every other case. Do at least try to keep up.

Since you obviously need these things spelled out, none of your three Ever-So-Significant points are the direct causes of otherwise perfectly preventable deaths.

Since you seem to need this spelled out too, we weren't discussing people who can't get vaccinated, we were discussing people who can get vaccinated but who are idiotic enough to refuse.

Got any other nits to pick, or would you like to try staying vaguely on-topic for once, instead of these pathetic attempts at derailing?

Since you're obviously an antivaxxer moron, I'll spell it out.

In almost every other case, the bad effects of bad parenting stop with the kids.

But in this case, their precious little walking sacks of infection can toddle off outside of home septic home and spread their diseases far and wide.

And if you don't think that's a problem that needs solving, you don't think at all.

...I would've thought that fact alone would be enough to discourage anyone (who's not actually suicidal) from stuffing around with onboard systems.

After all, if you win air miles, aren't you and/or friends & family that much more likely to be onboard when a hacked system goes titsup?

Or am I giving the average hacker too much credit for common sense?
