Consequences? Those are for poor people.
I still don't see how your edge case changes that pushing all that current knowledge into a massive wiki instead of millions of individual papers in journals wouldn't help for almost all other cases.
Good job on the thesis though.
Last I checked, a simple threat of violence isn't a reason enough to take away someone's liberty this long.
So is prison rape. Does that make it okay too?
In fact this is precisely why I wish there were something like a comp.sci wiki. A lot of this knowledge should be easier to access for people who didn't need a full degree to get where they are but realize they have a problem to solve and need a better way to do it than posting their current code on stackexchange.
Yes, the possibility of doing wrong is obvious but that root CA installation is very common when dealing with 802.1x authentication with Windows clients. Its a side-effect of how stupid Windows' handling of certificates is.
cf. this vendor's suggestion https://kb.meraki.com/knowledg... to disable certificate checking altogether to make it work instead.
The number of slashdotters that bleat about "teh evil corporations that break teh law!"
But support bypassing copyright law and getting their content for free because "information must be free".
It may be the same thing, but it isn't necessary the same people. We aren't a borg collective who all think alike. Some people defend Free Software, which requires copyright law in order to exist. Some people download all the torrents. There may be a cross-section that does both, which is as you say hypocritical. But the existence of that cross-section does not invalidate the opinions of those who consistently hold one position or the other.
Also, not all laws are created equal. Some people may support political measures such as export controls and sanctions, while not supporting copyright. If you broke the speed limit last year, does that mean that you are not entitled to justice if someone assaults you today?
If the USians want to cast it in a bad light, they call it "British Petroleum". It makes it sound sinister and evil.
BS. There's no such guarantee on any open source software. Last I checked, even Microsoft uses foreign workers.
A lot of encryption software comes from Canada because we're friendly to both sides
No, your statements may simply be phrased such that they do not clarify on which side of an argument you stand.
