Maggie made sure you guy's contribute less than the others and you are still moaning.

Less than France and Germany, perhaps. Oh no, we're only in the top fucking three. Quick, lets celebrate this senseless waste of several billion pounds.

If Britain has so many shortcomings then it'll be no loss to the EU when we leave.

I wrote a letter to my MP. In it I expressly told him that I fear the government more than terrorists, that I don't trust the police (and quoted specific examples why) and drew direct parallels between this legislation and the activities of the Stasi.

He'll fucking ignore it, because he's an arrogant cunt that couldn't give a shit about his constituents, staunchly supports European integration ahead of the interests of the UK and until recently was in thrall to his corporate paymasters. Yes Kenneth Clarke, I mean you, you ugly fuckface.

We're trying. Interesting that as soon as there's serious momentum behind the UK leaving the EU all the other nations are suddenly panicking about it - could be something to do with our net contribution.

Sorry but I'm pissed off with bankrolling the EU. There are better things to spend the money on.
I'm also fucking annoyed that the country is suffering from overpopulation, a significant cause of which is unfettered immigration from within the EU. I like Europeans, it's just that my country doesn't have the room or the infrastructure for them all to live here.

UKIP is full of cocks, twats, idiots and the occasional racist. They are buffoons and have horrific policies. They also recognise that none of this matters while we're subservient to the EU and unable to make decisions in our own best interest.

Terribly sorry if that offends you but tell you what: Invite Turkey, Serbia et al into the EU, force them to switch to the Euro and enjoy the expanded population and feeling of superiority that gives you. Just let the UK rescind into a small nation with a lot of free trade agreements, I'd be quite happy with that.

If I buy a washing machine at Target I don't have to buy it again at Walmart to get the 'cotton' wash cycle, and again at Amazon to get the 'drain water at the end of the cycle' feature.

Gamestop are intentionally causing game content fragmentation that diverts development resource and/or prevents customers cost-effectively acquiring the full game content.

It's stupid, it's malicious and it's why everybody over the age of 30 waits for a steam sale to buy the game and its DLC these days, rather than buying half a game upfront.

It depends what I'm looking for.

If I'm recruiting someone to deliver a single project, with a skillset we don't have in-house, then I'll look for a contractor and I'll focus on skills, delivery and availability.

If I'm recruiting someone to help progress the company, suggest and lead strategic work, fit into and enhance the culture and cope with multiple complex pieces of work at the same time, I'm going to want someone with a track record of working with a large corporation, that understands how they work and how to work effectively within them, and that has the length of service that suggests that at a minimum they could work the system well enough not to get sacked.

It's destructive and expensive employing people that can't fit into a team, or that wont be happy at the company.

No-IP domains are used 93 percent of the time for Bladabindi-Jenxcus infections,

If I set up malware on my home PC and use DynDNS then DynDNS domains are used 100% of the time to serve my malware.

So maybe Microsoft are saying that 93% of infections come via No-IP domains. That might be a tiny fraction of the overall No-IP domains.

What's next, a RICO prosecution for the owners of No-IP?

Or for Microsoft?

Most people are however merely stating that the evidence doesn't support the claims, and that it is only sensible to treat this as a scam without further evidence.

That's a very supportable and legally defensible statement, particularly when there is no attempt to refute it.
