Comment Re: So what should we do? (Score 2) 430

Reading the article (I know..), this is a very odd shifter lever. It isn't a manual gear shift, it is P R N D/S (the newfangled automatic manual selection transmission), but it always returns to center, it doesn't stay at the park position. Also, if they car isn't in park, it doesn't shut off the engine, which is an odd design choice as well. I am not entirely sure how you actually put it in park, it sounds like you hold the button and push it all the way forward, but that seems like it would just work and not be weird enough to put people off. I'm really not sure what is going on here.

You do realize that you are responding to someone who was responding to someone else right?


Why not 3D print the blades directly? I was told, in no uncertain terms, that 3D printing is the future, and anything else is just Luddite.

I was told 3D printed houses, 3D printed cars,3D printed airplanes,3D printed Mars colonies,3D printed rockets,3D printed food,3D printed organs.

Now all you have is a big mold? So what?

But, I know thats a bit much to ask, actually comprehending what you read..

Perhaps you should remove the log in your eye first...

So, APK, how does it feel to Troll on an article about trolling? If Slashdot worked the way that Twitter is trying to setup, you wouldn't be able to post anymore. How would that make you feel?

You are essentially giving an example of exactly what Twitter doesn't want any more of. People who post all about how awesome they are, and how terrible the other person is, just because they can't win an argument. It is like exactly what the definition of a troll is. You must live under a bridge.

Why all the sexism? Are you saying that women can't possibly be the trolls? Or is it agism, that trolling people is somehow a 12 year old thing? Perhaps you should expand your horizons and realize that ANYONE can troll, including the ones making up these rules!

Comment Re:can't the state do something about this? (Score 1) 212

My understanding is that the state department wasn't the original classification authority, so they did not have the authority to declassify something that did not originate in the state department, so whoever did it is in big trouble.

It is kind of off topic as the topic is some power company using H1B's illegally, but if it wasn't for offtopic conversations, would Slashdot even have a comment section?

will work to ensure a safe and secure platform for users to express themselves freely and safely.

Unless you have an opinion that differs from someone else's. Or if we think you are a troll, because restricting free speech is the quickest way to allowing people to express themselves freely.
