Comment Utopia (Score 1) 266

If you need a plumber, you hire a plumber. If liberal arts majors are such savants at everything, why don't they go build a utopia and spend their free time jerking each other off? Sorry doc, I checked your cv and it your liberal arts are weak. Do you maybe have a nurse on staff versed in dead middle eastern languages... otherwise I'll have to take my cancer elsewhere.

I remember how excited people were when this came out. Then those first couple of petitions went through and the response from the government was reliably more or less "Oh, we understand that you want that, and it sure does sounds neat, but we're not going to do that. Really though, super appreciate the input! TTFN!"

We've got enough people in prison. Just make it so that if there is evidence of horrible security that the affected users have a simple recourse. Have some tiered system set up ahead of time that says what compensation you are entitled to for various breaches. Once you have that massive liability insurance firms are going to get involved and most likely require their own security presence.

You are in a maze of UUCP connections, all alike.
