As a Slashdotter since before logins and registrations, this is simply pathetic.

As Dan Luu writes:"I’m amazed at how quickly it’s possible to destroy user trust, and how much easier it is to destroy a brand than to create one."

Indeed.

Since the latest studies indicate that there are 440,000 deaths per year caused by doctors screwing up. (http://www.medicalmalpracticelawyer.center/2014/05/new-study-confirms-440000-deat.html) Add to that the likely unknown millions beyond that that have serious to moderate problems that are short of death caused by medical negligence and maybe you should not trust anything a doctor says blindly.

Kids die from a lot of preventable things. Based on CDC data, more kids commit suicide using suffocation than guns in the US. Does that mean we need to ban all plastic bags? And a lot of the deaths are over-inflated because they consider a 19 year old to be a child for their statistics.

I am sure their password policy is one of those "You have to change your password weekly, cannot use the same password you ever used before, must contain a random assortment of letters, numbers and symbols." kind of policies that makes people write their passwords down on a note under their keyboard.

AFAIK, all the climate projections could be wrong and we could be heading for another ice age that is only being delayed by our production of green house gases. There is really no good way to be 100% sure of the projections either way. That being said, we need to reduce how much we rely on non-renewable resources, and quit pumping garbage into the atmosphere, it stinks and it makes breathing difficult. In my view, the extremists on both sides of the issue are just as stupid. It's kind of like politics, the extremes are where the morons go, the moderates are where smart people go.

And there were amendments made to the Constitution to eliminate slavery and give women the right to vote. Amendments are how the Constitution is a "Living" document. Just ignoring the parts you don't agree with is not how it is done. The right to bear arms was put in place to make sure the people never fell under the boot of the government, which means it was intended for us to have arms capable of standing up for our rights. You may be naive enough to trust the government, that does not mean others are.

Portions of the decline go back much further, some would trace it to right after the US was founded. I tend to think the major portion of decline began with Lincoln, he did a great deal to place the Federal government above the people and the Constitution.

I would have to say I am happy with my U-Verse service at home. I was with TWC before, and they REALLY sucked. I had to reset my internet router multiple times a day, they sent technician after technician out to find the problem, and no luck. I switched to U-Verse and my internet has been down for about 15 minutes in the last 2 years.

I have never seen a death caused by a gun, many caused by humans using guns as a weapon. I have also seem men die because of words, does that mean words kill by your logic? Should freedom of speech and freedom of the press be curtailed because of the damage men cause using them?

The perversity of nature is nowhere better demonstrated by the fact that, when exposed to the same atmosphere, bread becomes hard while crackers become soft.
