Comment: Ok, but you're not in before: ECOLOGICAL FALLACY! (Score 1) 175

Not to mention other cross-level fallacies. See for example: Diez-Roux, A. V. (1998). Bringing context back into epidemiology: variables and fallacies in multilevel analysis. American Journal of Public Health, 88(2):216--222.

The upshot: Even if a causal relationship corresponds to the study's findings, causes of state-level rates of test achievement are fundamentally different things than causes of student-level rates of test achievement.

And you also answer the question by way of spreading FUD about taking control of one's own general purpose computer like a complete jackass.

My question was: given that the researchers identified ways to uninstall/trigger wipes of the malware from one's phone, how does one go about doing so? "Don't jailbreak an iphone." is not an adequate answer to that question.

"I truly think and feel OK cupid is wrong for forcing their agenda those whom do not necessarily agree." Do you mean like Prop 8 supporters forcing their lifestyle choices on same sex couples desiring to marry? Cause, like: it is very difficult to understand how you can mean what you wrote without blatant glaring, bigoted hypocrisy.

Comment: Subcreation (Score 1) 176

The summary puts me in mind of Tolkien's essay How Like a Leaf (and the companion short story "Leaf by Niggle"), wherein he explored the act of "subcreation" (i.e. creating fiction, whether literary, imaginary, visual, etc.) as part of what "in god's image" means: acting in a smaller capacity as a creator was for Tolkien inseparable from his spiritual beliefs as a christian trying to live in the image of god. Caveats: I am not christian, nor am I asserting that "in god's image" is universal among deistic religions, or that it does not have other interpretations, yadda yadda yadda...
