My children won't have to carry small amounts of cash, won't be allowed to buy snacks, and won't be allowed to buy food they already know they're allergic to? And in return they can spend their formative years being indoctrinated that being fingerprinted by the authorities every single day of their lives is the way we should all live our lives? Where do I sign up?

Let me get this straight: "It's just our genetic make-up" - the genetic makeup of normal, healthy human beings - to be "driven to breed well below the age of consent" and to have "natural urges [to] look at a child with feelings of lust".

Furthermore, one of the two types of child molester - specifically, the type that isn't mentally ill - "are just normal, otherwise healthy people who have a natural attraction to pubescent children below the age of consent" - just like everybody else!

But unlike other normal, healthy people, who are somehow able to "restrain themselves", the non mentally ill type of child molester just is not very good at repressing those "natural urges". Sadly, this leads to them being "incorrectly labelled paedophiles".

I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say that you're the other type.

Love it! Understand about the layout, that stuff is hard to get right. It might possibly help to go to a 2-line layout. Maybe upsize the star / flag and use as background. You might consider adding an All-Seeing Eye logo for visual balance and as an attention-getter. Anyway, it's cool that you're taking the time to make these. It may not be an actual campaign, but it's important to get the word out.

I didn't know it was possible to stuff that many conservative hot-button phrases into such a small amount of text. "I don't care if the world's getting hotter, just end the subsidies and get the government out of my way so I can get rich, you damned Oreos, I mean Watermelons." Beautiful. *Slow clap*.

Thanks for that link. It was quite informative after a little additional Googling.

So, Mozilla's CTO / VP for Mobile says that the reason they're implementing DRM in Firefox is that the W3C has enshrined it in a standard, Google and Microsoft are already shipping it, and "not implementing the W3C EME specification means that Firefox users have to switch to other browsers to watch content restricted by DRM" like Netflix, Amazon Video, and Hulu.

In completely unrelated news, Mozilla's business partner Telefonica (TEF) of Spain, which makes FirefoxOS cell phones and either owns or partners with Brazil's iMusica DRM / content streaming business, requested that Open Mobile Alliance Forward Lock DRM be included in FirefoxOS, because their users can't download OMA DRM Forward Lock-protected ringtones, music, and wallpapers without it. The implementation for this is basically in approvals now.

Some people might find this relevant to the discussion. Now, this is evidently both a different technology (OMA DRM Forward Link vs W3C EME) and a different product (FirefoxOS vs Firefox Web browser). But it's the same company (Mozilla), and a group that has no issues with adding DRM to one product may have fewer issues about adding it to another.
