Comment The other way around (Score 1) 213

It's really supposed to be the other way around: You post your Superman video to youtube, the owner of modern Superman sues you or tells Youtube to take it down, and then they have to prove that they own the copyright.

Of course, youtube could just look at the law you're showing them also.

Wait wait wait! I had never heard of the Cult of Reason, so I clicked the link you provided. So the Cult of Reason went around and took down crosses (some from graveyards) and converted christian churches into something else. Sure, it's in bad taste to mess with someone's gravestone, but as soon as the Christians got back in power they killed by guillotine the leaders of the Cult of Reason.

Who is persecuting who here?

The crazy thing is that slavery didn't actually end after the Civil War. When the Civil War ended, all slaves were to be freed except those that owed a debt for a crime. Guess who then became labeled criminals? If you answered shitloads of blacks in the South, you'd be right. They also passed laws making it a crime to:
Be black and Not be able to prove employment
Be black and raise your voice in front of a white woman
Be black and and be seen past curfew.

I say be black because the laws specifically targeted black people in its language.

Not only that, but what happens if Microsoft actually makes their platform more expensive? Gamers would have the choice of buying the more expensive version or the cheaper Linux version. This assumes that the support is there, which I keep reading more and more about. I run Windows for games, but I absolutely love KDE and Linux and would switch in a heartbeat (on my desktop, I run Linux everywhere else) if the majority of my games ran in my favorite environment.

You've obviously never been good at Starcraft. I'm a skinny guy, but I break out into sweats when I'm playing a fast-paced game! It's not so much about strength, but endurance, concentration, and accuracy. I know people might not understand it, but don't write off progamers just because you don't get it.

"Firefox is open source and free, but they introduced a tiny bit of advertising that can be turned off. Time to jump to a proprietary browser made by an ad company that's already tracking everything I do!"

I don't like this development either, but ditching Firefox for something less free with more advertising is retarded, just like you are.

Whom computers would destroy, they must first drive mad.
