Comment: What do they mean by anonymous? (Score 1) 219

Let's take Slashdot as an example. I am posting using my account, but there is no automatic way for this account to be linked to me the legal entity. In respect to this proposed law would this count as an anonymous post? If this is a back door to forcing people to link all their online activities to their real life identity, that would be a major problem.

Didn't they just fool the students with odd / non-standard use of symbols?
I presume that 4+3+2=( )+2 is supposed to mean the same as 4+3+2=x+2.
If they had presented the equation with x, surely (almost) everyone would have solved it?
I'm from the UK, is 4+3+2=( )+2 a commonly used / commonly understood way of presenting the problem in the US?

They are using the demand for source code as a barrier to trade to (unfairly) help domestic firms. Not very many overseas firms are going to provide source code, leaving the market open to Chinese firms.

The original report is really badly written. For example, this is a section heading:

"A multidimensional approach to benchmarking helps us separate whose experience is exemplary, and whose is cautionary, along several dimensions of broadband availability and quality"

Why do people write like this?

Your points about companies being reluctant to give bad reference is well taken, but where did the 'black people' rant come from? You seem like one of those people who suddenly butt into a random conversation with lines such as 'What about those blacks eh?'. It just leaves everyone else embarrassed and slightly bemused.

It's the only reasonable way to save our planet, before it is too late.

When you don't know what you are doing, do it neatly.
