Worse, he's now started posting bullshit trying to pretend he's being downmodded by people supporting adblock.

Not only is he stupid enough to spam slashdot, he's stupid enough not to realise that spam gets modded down.

It really has made this whole article a fucking waste of time from a comments front. Slashdot editors really need to blacklist his IP - maybe using their hosts file.

I don't need to prove him wrong. His constant spamming shows that he lacks morals, business ethics or consideration for other people, and that means his software is getting nowhere fucking near my PC.

He's a twat and his spam is obnoxious, irritating and (due to the point above) totally irrelevant. I can't and don't trust him or his software.

You're demonstrating that my use of the word cunt is very appropriate, and also backing up my point about people throwing the word privilege around to push an indefensible agenda.

You still haven't answered my initial questions, because you want to demonize me for challenging you instead of setting out your arguments. It's quite comical.

Using the word 'privilege' is a troll in itself.

What the fuck _is_ privilege? What the fuck do you know about the person to whom you used it as a slur? How the fuck is being surprised that a class of musicians don't prioritise their art any form of fucking alleged privilege anyway?

You were trolling, and flaming the person to whom you responded. The bit that I'm amazed at is that you got any insightful mods.

My colleagues sitting in the same office range in age from 22 to 63. Apart from a strangely consistent interest in photography there's almost no overlap in hobbies, family, work/life balance, etc.

Some have kids at school. Some are planning a family. Some have kids at university. Some don't have kids. Some are single. Some get to work at 7.30am and some work until 8pm. Some get to work at 10am and some go home at 3pm. One is an avid cyclist, one sings in a choir, one manages his local church, one runs his son's football team, one goes away to a European destination almost every weekend, one's doing a distance learning degree.

We all work together, collaborate, socialise within the office, go out for dinner together every few weeks, focus on improving the team, the business, the shareholder value.

Age and outside-of-work-culture just don't really come into it.

I have pulled into a military convoy in the past.
I've walked up to German soldiers while their convoy was stopped and photographed them before. They pulled out an anti-tank weapon, pointed it at me and then posed for the photograph.
I've been in a military convoy before.

I haven't seen anybody rammed off the road because I haven't done any of these things in Norfolk (America) and Quantico, where apparently US soldiers are taught to be brain dead fuckwits that have no fucking regard for the people around them.

I will for a child, a distressed pedestrian, or some old person or something like that though. I am not a monster, just an asshole.

Oh, so you knew the age of everybody in the car you knocked off the road? You fucking hero. I hope you got a medal.

Some people manage by the book, even though they don't know who wrote the book or even what book.
