And this:

the area around Chernobyl is uninhabitable. Before the accident, 120,000 people lived there. The Fukushima exclusion zone is currently a 30 km radius where all residents Were evacuated and is also a no-fly zone. The US Embassy subsequently advised Americans to keep a 80 km distance. Radiation induced cancers take decades to play out, and the claim that "no one died from Fukushima other than a few plant workers" is complete hogwash, as it's too soon to tell the longer term effects.

The FBI and NSA knew it was shit years ago.

Just sayin...

So did I. I gave up in Firefox once they moved away from the "less is more" school of design, several years ago. Same reason I gave up on Netscape before that-- creeping featurism. What I want in a browser is lean and mean. REALLY mean. The more complicated a browser is, the bigger the risk of security flaws.

It's probably good that we are regularly reminded that the world is full of assholes, and that walled gardens are not the sum total of reality. It may be that many people are assholes simply BECAUSE they are excluded from some of these gardens-- no doubt many of those within the gardens are assholes too, just of a different type. And if you can't figure how to deal with assholes without becoming one yourself, you deserve what you get...

It doesn't much matter, Google's UI skills really suck. The only reason the original Google search was a success is because they essentially didn't even have a UI, it was just a text entry box. When they try to add UI elements, it's all downhill. Microsoft's Ui often sucks too, but at least with Microsoft, I can at least usually tell what they're trying to do. With Google, I can't even tell what they were trying to do at all, it's pure WTF?

Where've you been? Obviously you didn't get the memo. FBI needs to tech-up. And what do you think the NSA is all about? Tech trumps everything, and makes every job easier and more effective. That's the pitch, anyway. You must not work in the tech industry, or at least not anywhere that makes contact with marketing at any point...

Such sites are the only places people get exposed to widely divergent views anymore. "Homogeneous" (read: "insulated") protected communities are not it. Sure, often such divergent communities meltdown into flamefests, but that doesn't mean we should all be cocooned into safe little worlds where everyone mostly agrees with us. If you can't take the heat, stay inside and remain ignorant.
