The drinkable book is its own container. And at a glance the biggest difference would be price, Lifestraw is selling for 20$, they say the book will be worth pennies. Could be lifestraw has a cheaper run for the poor areas but overall the biggest stumbling block for these purifier options (And there are quite a few) is their ability to scale. Its trivial getting a filter option for an individual or family, but when you get to city level or provincial they can't keep up or cost gets prohibitive.
I didn't prove you wrong, as I didn't make any comments on hosts, the program directly, or advocate alternatives. Didn't do any down modding, have that turned off for myself as it tends to be more opinionated.
No, my comment was completely about your character, and as your post shows, It is spot on.
Wouldn't really matter if your Host Engine was magical and did my taxes for me, in addition to all the security claims. The problem is that you, the author of it, come off as crazy. You spam your message across all of slashdot looking for the slightest mentioning of hosts/adblock, you hound anyone that speaks ill of you or the program and post messages in reply trying to pretend to be other people that support your 'message'. And lastly, anyone that you are hounding that starts to ignore you instead of respond you take as if they had finally admitted you were right.
All in all, not a good sign.
No, not a troll. It was pointing out the absurdity of the general statement that rights are for all or none.
Either the original post was, as you seem to be saying, a definition/concept of 'rights' in general then it was a off topic post of its own and served no real purpose.
Or, as I had thought when I read it, it was a statement that corporations should be allowed this right as all are allowed this right. Then my post is no more silly (Which I will state it was quite silly) and no less off topic.
