Not stupid. Just clickbait.

Nobody is going to get charged unless there's evidence that they knew they were hosting child porn and did nothing about it.

In my opinion they would have to know specifics. I'm sure that employees of the the phone company know that abusive and threatening calls are made sometimes, but that shouldn't make them liable.

Ghost town? G+ is no ghost town. My G+ stream is more active than fb feed. I have more friends on fb. I follow more random people on G+. Pro photographers and Techs.

That's what I find. Following technical subjects, etc. is much better on G+. Following friends holidays, birthdays, etc. better on FB

I'd ride to work every day too if it wasn't for the 100m height difference. But geez that was a fast ride home the few times I did.

A work colleague used to do the same regularly the other way round, only he lived 300m higher than the city. He'd come in as fresh as a breeze even in hot weather, but say he got really good exercise on the way home!

The longterm solution to Pakistans terrorism problems is largely structural and political. Increased education funding, crackdowns on government corruption, increased employment, and most of all a more vocal and political opposition to the United States drone war.

Wishful thinking. Its time to realise terrorism is motiveted by Islam, not poverty or lack of education. The BBC let slip this morning that girls going off to become "ISIS brides" were above average intelligence, straight A students and they did not grow up in poverty. The same for the 9/11 bombers.

There are three kinds of people: men, women, and unix.
