After so many years of this shit, it has to be intentional, just so people will post corrections.

Of course it is intentional, and yet no naming and shaming appears to be going on... why is that? Only a small handful of people are responsible for bringing this to our linux distros, and a few more responsible for keeping it there. Those people have lost the trust of the community and should never have any of their code submissions or bug priority lists accepted ever again, otherwise there is just no consequence for nefariously subverting the security of us all.

FBI illegally abuses its power in the worst way to entrap 5 very stupid people and you can suddenly cook up a story to disqualify a movement of hundreds and thousands (or any movement that is politically inconvenient, that is). Intellectually dishonest, much - entrapment is^H^H was illegal for some very good reasons - but hey, that is how you t/roll.

How FBI Entrapment Is Inventing 'Terrorists' - and Letting Bad Guys Off the Hook:

The guy who convinced the plotters to blow up a big bridge, led them to the arms merchant, and drove the team to the bomb site was an FBI informant. The merchant was an FBI agent. The bomb, of course, was a dud. And the arrest was part of a pattern of entrapment by federal law enforcement since September 11, 2001, not of terrorist suspects, but of young men federal agents have had to talk into embracing violence in the first place... In all these law enforcement schemes the alleged terrorists masterminds end up seeming, when the full story comes out, unable to terrorize their way out of a paper bag without law enforcement tutelage."

You forgot some labels: "Who else are we supposed to be afraid of? Certainly animal-rights and environmental radicals."

But don't worry your pretty little heads over the epidemic of far-right insurrectionism that followed the election of Barack Obama: all told, according to a forthcoming data analysis by Neiwert, there have been 55 cases of right-wing extremists being arrested for plotting or committing alleged terrorists acts compared to 26 by Islamic militants during the same period. The right-wing plots include the bombing of a 2011 Martin Luther King Day parade in Spokane and the assassination of abortion doctor George Tiller in 2009. Neither of their perpetrators, it goes without saying, had been arrested before they attempted their vile acts; neither required law enforcement entrapment to conceive and carry them out. It's just too bad for their victims they did not fit the story federal law enforcement seeks to tell.

Yes, you should still want proof that this is malicious or subversive.

Want proof before doing what, exactly? There only needs to be a reasonable doubt about malicious, subversive or incompetent behavior by vendors of security products to justify writing those products off as untrustworthy and shunning them, at least until the doubt can be cleared. In the last year we have had a mountain of doubt dumped down on us thanks to the Snowden revelations.

The Australian government makes the rules and the tax office implements them.

It seems Apple have complied with the rules.

If a majority of Australians are unhappy with what has happened, the correct response is to change the rules.

You are correct, however corporate media will spin this on behalf of the corrupt/immoral politicians that serve large corporations and keep the citizens in the ignorance. Lots of fuzzy warm feel good sound bites like "trade deals allowing tax breaks to foreign companies are good for our farmers", "allow us to grow our export industry" etc etc despite little actual evidence after decades of such deals being in place. Australians are particularly at risk of the corporate media chamber given that Murdoch Media empire has around 70% of the market last I heard, with the runners-up mostly echoing the same spin and propaganda,

Many Australians are big on their "buy Australian"/logo marketing for locally made products. It must be frustrating when your own corrupt politicians go out of their way to offshore as much corporate profit as possible, offsetting any gains that might have been made encouraging local industries...

Media leaks legislation?

When did the US Government become an enemy of freedom?

The moment the political class concerned itself more with the accumulation of,power and money for a few, rather than say running the country in a balanced manner for the greater good of all its citizens. Media leaks mean Informed Citizens, which may threaten corrupt power slightly more than if the citizens were left in the dark.

By doing so, they are promoting a model where an ISP or operator can charge a fee per web site, instead of flat access rates to the entire network. With the recent agreement between Netflix and Comcast where netflix has to pay Comcast to provide proper service to it's already paying subscribers, we're seeing a worrisome future for flat fee data plans emerge."

Various Swedish legal experts have fallen on either side of the debate, for example fairly critical article on Assange quotes Swedish professor emeritus of international law, Ove Bring, as saying: "the evidence is not enough to charge him with a crime". So even the experts disagree. Unless you have some inside knowledge I do not see how you can be so sure as to say "technically the charges would come after". So your remarks smell like trolling to me...

As usual from Cold Fjord: half truths, lies, deception, repeating ad hominem and all your typical moral low ground techniques (just to sum up your posts under this very story). There are no charges against Assange. Yeah yeah save use the "Sweden is different, questioning is the same as charging him" crap you usually retort with about this point. Carry on it is amusing to watch... hehe

...and how many terrible things have been said about Assange by Assange critics (take this "news" for example) - so your point is what, exactly? People say dumb shit all the time - the only important sensible thing is to rise above the Ad Hominem attacks coming from both sides and concentrate on the facts. No wonder this news was posted by "anonymous reader", just more of the same...

If a subordinate asks you a pertinent question, look at him as if he had lost his senses. When he looks down, paraphrase the question back at him.
