and here you are, reading and responding
you are what you hate
A huge percentage are frickin' snowflakes demand to be given the same rights and berth as automobiles
Can you imagine someone demanding the same rights as an automobile?
Everyone knows automobiles were endowed by the Creator with inalienable rights to have everyone get out of the fucking way.
good, glad to entertain, that's the right attitude
Most of us are looking forward to the advent of autonomous vehicles.
Are you shitting me? Most of us were looking forward to the advent of flying cars, too.
Earlier this week...
And who do they think is going to be purchasing all these "autonomous vehicles" and with all the twenty-somethings and millennials moving back home with their parents, how do they think they're going to afford them?
Look, I don't mind advertisements on Slashdot, but goddamn, please stop with the press releases from "anonymous" parties.
usually, if someone is not nice to you, you avoid them. are you a masochist? do you crave social contact so badly abuse is acceptable?
if you see a comment of mine, don't read it. and don't respond to it. is this concept too complicated and confusing for you?
I'm starting to wonder if all the loud music when I was younger damaged my ears. Every time I turn on the radio, everything sounds like shit.
It is a private agreement between the French and a corporate entity.
wow! really? did you read the fucking sentence right after the one you quoted genius?
I have no idea what you are talking about with "music sharing" since I never mentioned it once. I'm going to assume you are trolling at this point.
What a laugh. They can certainly do so. All they need to do is ask Google and Google needs to agree to it in order for it to happen. DMCA requests to Google already expunge data from Google IN ALL COUNTRIES, not just the US.
any other help you need today moron?
at this point i have to conclude you're just trolling me
I just gave my sysadmin an eightball of coke and a box full of Raspberry Pi's. He says he's "planning something big".
I'm starting to wonder if I should maybe tell someone.
i'm not a nice person. and this is not couple's therapy
if someone says something stupefyingly dumb (on a "news for nerds" website no less), they deserve to be pilloried
i understand the concept of educating the ignorant patiently. but then there is stupidity so amazing there is no hope
prideful ignorance exists in this world. it resists logic reason and patience. such stupidity needs to be attacked for the cancer it is (irony intended). blind and dumb people actually cause real damage in this world
Um, no. I never said that. Read it again. And use caps.
i understand exactly what you said. and i additionally understand that your comment does not address the actual topic. i will use caps just as soon as you actually try to understand the fucking topic in front of you, and then commenting
furthermore, to actually follow you down your lame red herring topic change, just to completely show your idiocy (as if you confusing music sharing with "right to be forgotten" didn't do that effectively enough):
you don't think that all sorts of countries twist the arms of all sorts of multinationals for all sorts of lame reasons already? that's just corporate life. this isn't new or even noteworthy
the hard line, the important point, is that the sovereignty of a *country*'s laws is not subjugated to the fickle bullshit of another country's ignorant laws
of course governments often go into treaties and agree on limited exceptions to their sovereign laws. these situations are narrow and up for constant review. that's fine too
but i can guarantee you no US government is going to respect French requests to censor based on this useless "right to be forgotten" band aid, ever. the request will be laughed at and waved out of the room, as it should be
finally, if france does kick out google, the usa reciprocates against french companies operating in the usa for the fickle bullshit of a logically incoherent and invalid law. so france won't do it, or they will hear from their influential multinationals
any questions? any other remedial hand holding you need today on this topic?
Patent Office Lottery
it is a moral issue
and france has the wrong understanding of the topic and the immoral position
additionally, if france does kick out google, the usa reciprocates against french companies operating in the usa for the fickle bullshit of a logically incoherent and invalid law
news like this makes me so mad. because it demonstrates something wonderful we as a civilization have achieved time and again. something that should be applauded and celebrated and championed:
1. disease, unfair deaths
2. science, hard work by intelligent people
3. vaccine, innocent lives saved
it's obvious, straightforward, undeniable, a wonderful good
against that we have prideful ignorance, that continues to claim the lives of innocent children and others, simply because of their various paranoid conspiracy theories, lies, and petulant low iq
in a just world, those who don't vaccinate die from ebola
in the real world, those who do vaccinate protect those who do not, and when the herd immunity breaks down, because of the unvaccinated, the vulnerable innocent and the unlucky few who got a vaccine but it didn't take hold, also die
objectively, based on the content of what you just wrote, you are a moron. not a baseless insult, an accurate characterization of the content of your thoughts, to be someone who wrote what you just wrote
