Your choice. I offered a valid solution.
You are more than welcome to get a court order and demand IP addresses, then compare them. I'm sure both places log IP+posts.
Nah, its not. But believe what you wish, it is a free country. ( assuming a US citizen here )
See, the problem is i wasn't doing that. You simply failed to impress me enough to deserve the truth. I rarely give anyone that chance, so you should feel special. But its nice to know you performed as expected.
Sorry, not the same person. No "nickname" is overly unique in the online world these days. Its not 1980 anymore.
But i dont want to blow my karma.
It was just a question. It had nothing to do with who I am. Think of it as a quiz to see if you deserve to know who i am.
However, you failed question #1 miserably, by not answering a simple yes/no question, and instead being a smart-ass. Thus not deserving.
Ever hear of VX gas?
Don't need to prove anything to a potty mouthed coward.
Who said i *think* that? I am smarter, which is an actual fact. ( tho to you, not knowing who i really am, I could appear to be a random person so i will give you that )
What kind of handwaving armchair wannabe are you?
One that plans ahead well enough that this would not considered 'news'. Instead it would be just SoP.
Why didn't they plan ahead for this sort of operation in the beginning, making it painless and 'reliable' ( as possible ).
Actually, getting hold of bubonic plague is easier than you think. It's endemic amongst e.g. prairie dogs in the Four-Corners area of the US (where Colorado, Utah, New Mexico and Arizona connect).
Of course, that ubiquity means it'd make a pretty poor bioweapon, since it also means the medical infrastructure is equipped to handle it. Also, it's a bacterium, so it can be treated with antibiotics. (In the 4-Corners area, hantavirus is a more serious concern.)
To answer your original question, I'd say "wishful thinking" -- but the 9/11 attacks probably started out that way too.
Your comment prompted me to try nlzero.com again. My account is still there!
Noise Level Zero (nlzero) is the heir to Byte Magazine's BIX (Byte Information Exchange) system from pre-web days. No official connection, but it uses the same CoSy software and many of the BIX regulars moved over to nlzero when Byte shut down the BIX system.
Still going, with recent messages, though of course nowhere near as active as BIX was in its heyday.
Pfui, you young kids and your screen editors like 'vi'. The 'ed' editor was good enough for Ken Thompson, it should be good enough for you.
Now get off my lawn!
I can guarantee that whatever disease was launched would make its way back to the population that ISIS purports to represent.
And? This isn't a problem for them.
