You make me laugh. I was on the Internet when the BBS was the most happening thing going on. Clearly you do not understand that the rules of polite society do not go out the window just because you are posting something on the Internet, at least not in the eyes of the law and not in the eyes of the vast majority of society. Threats of bodily harm are the same whether made on the Internet, in the newspaper, in a hand written letter, or to your face.

First of all, I was not proposing a categorical imperitive. Obviously everyone matures at different rates. I've met 15 year olds who were more mature than some 40 year olds. In general though, high school aged people in the United States lack the maturity neccessary for serious study of philosophy.

As to the age of the bulk of Aristotle's and Plato's students, interesting. Do you have a source for this? Aristotle did not study with Plato until he was 18, and the Platonic Academy was a highly selective group for discussing philosophical problems. It does not appear to me that it was a place for the young. Either way, different cultures result in different levels of maturity at different ages. My statement is only appropriate to the United States as I do not understand any other culture well enough to claim I know how mature people tend to be at different ages.

No, just lying in bed, working from home at my highly paid job, wondering when it was that slashdot got so lame. Used to be people came back with facts. Or counter arguments. Or opinions of their own. Or experiences of their own.

But it's been reduced to the point where the only opposition I ever get to my statements is from idiots who try to paint me as something I'm not and attack that. It's sad. You're sad.

I'm everything I ever said that I was. My life is stranger than fiction most of the time anyway, I have no need to lie to get people excited.

I agree... there should be a color for this. In between "Free" and "Partly free"; there should be a "Technically Free but de-facto censored" category

Why are you so afraid to call a spade a spade? The USA is NOT a free country. They censor people, they incarcerate more of their population than any other country, they make debt slaves of the people that remain... they are NOT FREE, and they're using war to spread their NOT FREEDOM everywhere they can because they hate OUR freedom.

How on earth does this make him a "scumbag" and why do you want his career to fail, exactly?

Ever heard of something called integrity? This man has none. He crafted a huge lie and operated under false pretenses. Who cares why he did it? He did it. Nothing he says or does can be trusted now. People who spread lies and misinformation like this JUSTIFY censorship.

He who has but four and spends five has no need for a wallet.
