That's one of the most retarded statements I've seen on /. in a while. And this is /., so that's saying an awful lot!

Why would Genesis mention any celestial objects other than those visible and understandable to the original recipients of the Bible? Talking about the creation of the planet we live on is a perfectly acceptable thing to do when space flight of any kind would not occur for another 3-4000 years.

Mailing list software is not the author of any email it distributes on behalf of a list user.

That is only true in the sense that the list-serv isn't creative in the Human sense, and did not author the words contained in the message. From a technical standpoint, however, it is perfectly valid to state that list-serv software is authoring the message. It just happens to be quoting verbatim from some random message it received.

It's a lot safer if a random thief breaking and entering your home does't know for certain if you have a gun. For one, he won't be going specifically to steal your gun. And he won't necessarily pack any heat of his own if he doesn't expect that level of violence.

And of course there are plenty of people who would like to lynch gun owners as a matter of policy. A bit ironic, but that's the kind of hysteria the U.S. experiences every time someone goes on a rampage.

Any app can do that on any device. If you don't want software on a mobile device to have access to the 'net, don't install it. It's not an inherent insecurity to have network access.

(On iOS 7, you can disable access over cellular on a per-app basis to cut down your data usage.)
