You get modded down because you use misleading information and outright lies to push your painfully obvious agenda. Everybody that reads Slashdot with any kind of frequency came into this article knowing full well you would be here spin-spin-spinning.
If ever there is any support given to one of the United States' "enemies" or anything bad said about the NSA you are on that like white on rice. You set off everybody's bullshit detector because you make defending the party-line your Slashdot persona.
How often is that? How often do you contribute from such an environment? And most importantly- why? Do you really think the amount of money and effort required to support ancient and now esoteric browsers is worth it?
I'm genuinely curious here. I see way more people on slashdot making these claims than I would ever expect.
Oh please- using Slashdot trolls as evidence of anything other than people being morons is just stupid. They're god damn trolls! The reason that type of troll is so common is because you all feed them.
Bieber has no real virtues over others you would call his "peers". He's not more talented and he's not better looking. He won the fame lottery and capitalised on it.
Carlsen got to where he is by beating his peers. That is why people here respect him more.
