and if we don't count gangland violence

And if you don't count death, we all live forever.

Why the hell wouldn't you count "gangland" violence? We've got more people in prison than any other country in the world, so when I hear people talk about how there is really little violent crime (except for the violent crime) in the US, it's kind of a joke.

Uhhh...did everybody forget that Nokia still exists as a company? And that as part of the sale they are only barred from selling mobile devices for 3 years? Why in the hell would they want to build positive rep for a brand they will be most likely competing against in a few years?

Frankly the whole argument is moot anyway because you go into mobile stores and folks don't call it the "Nokia Lumia" anymore than they call it the "Samsung Galaxy" or "HTC Evo" its just the Lumia, Galaxy, and Evo. Working retail I deal with folks and phones all damned day (one of the new services I offer is loading Android ROMs,becoming quite popular here) and I can tell you nobody calls them the full name, they just call it by the model.

I'd like to see some examples of colonial judges enacting new laws.

Also, I'd like to point out that your response is non sequitur to the point - Constitutionally, only the legislative branch can legally create laws; the only legitimate argument would be to point out somewhere in the Constitution that says otherwise.

A womans contribution requires 9 months, during which time any distraction, disruption or stress can cause the "person creation" process to fail catastrophically.

If that were true, the human race would have become extinct long ago. Pregnant women are actually pretty robust and remain capable of just about anything (except becoming pregnant again) for the great majority of the 9 months.

At the end of the day, the problem is people like you...

That's not the best way to start a sentence in which you care to make a point.

its not about "some punk ass talking shit", its about anonymous rape and death threats against a person and/or their family. I couldn't give a shit about trolls talking shit because i don't know and therefore i don;t care about their opinion, but physically threatening my family is a different thing altogether

Then call the police and have them arrested, rather than take the law into your own hands and commit a crime yourself by physically assaulting someone.

A point which, BTW, I clearly pointed out in my last post. Apparently what i said made you too mad to actually bother reading it... Please don't hit me.

Make headway at work. Continue to let things deteriorate at home.
