There's a lot of truth to that. I do have to wonder if Jack Thompson got the same ratio of trolls to intelligent counter arguements that Sarkeesian got. "White older male lawyer getting a lot of grief from gamers" just doesn't move as many clicks as "feminist getting attacked by neckboards". So it's kind of hard to say. I'm sure Thompson got his fair share of death threats, probably not rape threats so much.
Couldn't they have worded this petition a little better? It's a very serious issue and it's written a little like a drunken rant.
One! Okay? You guys get one of those stupid ass non stories. Choose wisely.
And happy "The Internet is completely useless Day" everyone.
but why the hell would anyone use Twitter? What's your reasonable best case scenario? You could get a book deal maybe. On the other hand, you're playing Russian Roulette with everything you post. Say something the internet finds offensive at that time and they'll burn you to the ground.
No one in this list were a part of a psychotic death cult...
Yeah, well call me when John Boehner starts burning people alive and posting it to Youtube.
Record a conversation you're having with your friends. We tend to have a way of speaking to our kids that's very different than how we'd speak to our peers. A few recorded conversations with friends, coworkers etc would give your daughter more insight into you as a person and not just as a parent.
Yes it's half the cost of anything else but you'll pay dearly in time trying to fiddle with it. I ended up getting a smartthings hub, twice the price but it's actually usable.
As far as the bulbs, I'm not really sure what the utility of smartifying the bulb is when you have to worry about the switch. Just get a smart switch. You can control it just like a regular switch and you can do things like assign schedules or remote control.
On top of this not being a "stupid" screen, this product is also unsuitable as a pc monitor. It uses 4:2:0 chroma subsampling which makes text look terrible.
I'll see that and raise you that every entity in the world that profits from the freedom of speech should have pick one day out of the year to post the most insane inflammatory depictions of Muhammad they can think up.
This one is classic:
"Please don't support this abuse of technology, Reddit. Oscilloscopes were invented to benefit mankind and save lives by being used for purposes such as monitoring heart rates. It's disgusting seeing a male program it to run a violent video game. This is exactly the same as going to a school for a shootout rather than for education. I hope this travesty is destroyed before a doctor mistakes it as a heart rate monitor and ends up shooting a female patient.

Borderline despicable behavior on Sony's part actually. The movie industry makes an enormous amount of money because of the freedom of speech. But when it comes time to defend that freedom this is how they behave.
Well you have to understand where we're coming from on this. See, humanity in general has a very brutal and violent history. Western Europeans specifically came out ahead and we find it very difficult to reconcile this with our current understanding of morality. So we like to do things like make a list of nouns we're not allowed to use to refer to other groups as and then give people shit if we catch them using it. It doesn't actually solve anything but it makes us feel better.
We need to adhere to Biblical software standards. 10 commandments, that's all you need.
