This is the wrong place to ask those questions... email support@slashdot.org

We been sending mail to that address for years now complaining about your stupid interface updates. We keep getting responses back saying we won't answer because we're too busy happily coding your favorite minimalist website presentation into a clown festival of pop culture! Can we take you to german court for it?

Great dad, in my opinion. My kids grew up involved in hunting, fishing, and shooting sports - but a trip to a refugee camp would probably have cured them of the FPS BS faster than anything.

Fortunately, they were never really into videogames.

And everyone who thinks he was wrong is an idiot, who lives in a fantasy world where making sure children are never exposed to violence will produce a world where there is never violence. The only way to stop violence is to be sure that everyone can defend themselves, educate everyone regarding why violence shouldn't be done, and the effect it has on others, and by removing the reasons to do violence in our society, eg scarcity.

Im not sure the male gender has much to feel insulted about considering what it as done. I cannot think of an insult that is worse than that history. Or, a man can choose to not identify with that stereotype and strike out on their own and try to be a good person. To do that, they must keep an open mind, and herein lies the problem.

So, what you're saying here is you're running a cat pornography site and you don't want regulations to stipulate that only cats of age can view said material and therefore will require a login and identity verification which will raise development costs and put you out of business? I think a warrant is in order sir...

First of all, lets look at some maps. Go on. Click on some maps. What continent is Nicaragua in folks? Central America, a bit north of Panama. Look at all the green. That country has tons of nature preserves! Look at it all. Find yourself a nice easy route through that country as if you're planning a canal from one coast to the other. Compare it to the length of the Panama Canal which is easily seen by the roads marked beside it. Any way you slice it the distance is like 3-4x as long! And it crosses thru a big lake or a a huge animal sanctuary! This is going to mess up the landscape a bit folks, and between my thoughts of "unnecessary" and "crazy capitalist pigs" I can't come up with a reason for doing any of it. The Panama Canal is important. Saves journeys around the whole of South America or North America, each of which reach toward the poles and icy passages and dangerous sailing. Why do we need two? What military advantage could it possibly serve if the enemies of America had this canal at the start of the war? It won't last long. If the US can't control it with their military and use it for themselves, they'll just drop a couple nukes at either end and watch all those farmlands flood with salt water. I think this is a huge undertaking with little to no real gain.

The description in the OP is pretty harsh in saying he's claiming he was harmed by this. I doubt that very much, but indeed this is false advertising and we won't put up with it.

Of course, have you noticed that we all take issues with our video games ultra seriously, like it's a super big deal man, but if shit goes totally sideways for some people locked in their country with bombs raining from overhead, or starving to death, or having acid sprayed at them for wanting to *LEARN*, or cutting themselves picking up sharp metal objects out of trash at age 6 for a meal every day, well that's unfortunate and maybe we should go play some video games to make ourselves feel better.

Don't think we've seen one of those in a good long while. How many people reading this right now have a good diet? Do you exercise enough? How's your digestion? Immune system? Do you have any infections that won't go away/you don't know about? How's the ratio of bacteria in your intestines? Define a healthy human being.... no one knows what that is. Doctors certainly don't because there's no profit in it.

Stop fragmenting wildlife habitat? Crack down on superstitious morons who think that tiger bones will do more to cure their insomnia than over the counter sleeping pills? Don't buy a 500 hp pickup for one person to drive to work when you can use mass transit? Stop packaging absolutely everything in Plastic which causes the oceans to clog up with plastic waste? Replace old fossil fueled power plants? Slap massive import duty on products from countries who are major polluters to pay for the damage their total lack of regard for the rest of the planet causes? Buy more electric cars and put some effort into making them affordable? Expand Economic Exclusion Zones, set up an international naval task-force and crack down on pirate fishing fleets? Try to situate food production facilities as close to the consumer as possible to cut down on carbon emissions? Promote energy efficiency? Provide incentives for people to upgrade old buildings to reduce their energy consumption? Try to plan cities and infrastructure to create continuous habitat for wildlife and modify existing infrastructure similarly? Stop listing to ignorant and corrupt politicians who label common sense stuff like this as communism?

Um. no. No. These are all terrible ideas and they must be banned from all forms of publication and transmission immediately. Don't let anyone hear about how to do any of these things or that they exist at all. Ever.
Thanks, signed, the capitalist regime.

Yes. And I've seen it from other companies as well. Case in point was the local insurance company (mandatory monopoly) for my province known as ICBC. It's not hard to set up a group of filters on the global feeds of various public social media sites and bring forward the ones that have to do with certain brands. I'm sure it's even less hard to sell such a service to various owners of such brands so they can meet their dissatisfied customers head on, and prevent more bad publicity.

Nestle is bottling water out of the very basin being talked about in the OP, and no one cares. It's not even mentioned in the article. They have a huge factory drawing cubic meters at a time out of there, and it's at the height of a drought, yet no one moves to stop them, or even says anything to relate it to the problem. Just fucking perfect.

Just because he's dead is no reason to lay off work.
