They call themselves the 'intelligence' community, but even that is a lie.
I really wish you kids would stop discovering Mitnick and worshiping him like a hero.
Lets get some facts about Mitnick straight.
You would do well to follow your own advice.
Nobody here is idolizing him, we are merely pointing out that he is perhaps the best example of a geek being punished out of all proportion to their actual criminality, and deliberately hounded by prosecutors and law officials who were behaving no better than the lowest sort of playground bully.
That's all; the fact we keep mentioning him is not because we think he was a uberhacker; quite the reverse. The people bullying him were the ones claiming that.
Get off your fucking high horse and learn to read!
guy is charged with breaking into the Danish Police central servers *and* one of the biggest Danish banks.
And if those charges against him fail he will be further charged with 'treading on the cracks in the pavement' and 'looking at me in a funny way'.
You do get the difference between 'charged' and 'convicted'; yes/no? Or did you not learn that in your reading class.
Warg + cell phone + solitary = somebody's missiles will launch.
then your current
We need a -1 [Contains FUD] option
Hummm.. We certainly do.
In the real world, solitary confinement is often used as extrajudicial punishment by unaccountable authorities.
Watch 'Cool Hand Luke' or 'The Great Escape' if you want to see powerful examples of how it is used to try and control 'troublemakers'.
.. common knowledge for quite a long time
If I had asserted it in public prior to the Snowdon leaks, anonymous apologists would have popped up saying: 'Where is your proof'.
Now we have that proof the same anonymous apologists are saying it was: 'Common knowledge'.
.. makes it look like nothing more than a money grab.
No; it's a rent.
So long as you do not charge for bags that are strong when sold but soon decay once exposed to free air and UV then this is not a land grab, since the market (which only cares about polluting when it is expensive) will rapidly move to the least damaging option and your 'grab' will shrink to nothing.
Of course. This is actually a land grab, since the market will maximize profit anyway and once we are all used to paying for bags the charge will remain, The only way to prevent this would be legislation, which is commie and apparently evil.
pots and kettles etc.
Sigh.. 'Wrong in what way?
This was the archive of speeches, not just the parliamentary ones; but all the ones at election rallies and conferences too.
For instance; ToryBoy recently sat in a big gold chair and ate a 4 course meal along with all his rich chums in the Guildhall, London. He then stood in front of an gilded podium and made a speech in which he told all the little people that they had not worked hard enough and that austerity is now here to stay.
This speech is exactly the sort of one that will never appear on Hansard, and in a few years may well be the sort of thing Tory spinsters will hope to make 'disappear'.
And taking said picture violates the naked person's expectation of privacy
Errr.. I would hope said photo would be the #1 piece of evidence in court that someone is a pervert who willfully exposes their genitalia to old ladies and little children walking in the street.
Shhhhh... Googles competitors and their pet nutters are here in force, you might make them upset by pointing out that their neighbours kid has the ability to monitor their wifi permanently (instead of for a few seconds on a couple of random occasions).
Meanwhile, since I'm not american, that bunch or right-wing loons and sociopaths they laughingly call a Government is systematically and far, far, more comprehensively spying on everything I do.
Interesting to see the BBC arse-licking their cause by trying to deflect peoples anger from the worst offenders to the least.
My thoughts exactly. I'm sure there has been something in the news about this recently. But in that case the BBC almost totally failed to mention it.. I wonder why?
I doubt it, Bankers rule, HSBC probably dictated all the terms and their directors probably think the US owes them an apology, or something.
If any list did go over it probably looked like:
Mr D.Duck. PO Box 11198745.3, Caymen Islands. 10Million
Mrs O.Oil, PO Box 7645332, Dubai. 12Million.
And has mysteriously disappeared, or fallen behind the sofa, anyway.
I think his original comment made it clear he knows the difference; that's why he called the Tiltrotor a 'rotor equivalent to' the Harrier.
You have obviously never seen the ME in operation; I have, it was not pretty. I especially liked the skill with which on of the mounted leant really low in the saddle to beat his stick on the heads of two women treating an unconscious man.
