Submission + - Google Shopping Censors Confederate Flag->

Plugh writes: Go to Google Shopping and enter "Confederate flag"
Google shopping shows results for many unpopular flags, like "North Koran" and "Syrian". It shows results for revolutionary-war era US flags, like "Gadsden" and "Minuteman". But it shows ZERO results for "Confederate flag". Yet, with a little Googling, we find many online merchants selling confederate flags.

Submission + - FBI shuts down Silk Road 2.0->

Plugh writes: On Thursday international law enforcement agencies including the FBI, the Department of Homeland Security and Europol took down the Silk Road 2 and arrested its alleged operator 26-year-old Blake Benthall in San Francisco.
Come on, Slashdotters, help me understand how they managed to do this? Another careless operator? Another JavaScript injection? What?!?

Comment Why would any healthy person do this? (Score 1) 644

The poor slobs now have to sell you health care EVEN IF YOU ALREADY HAVE AN EXPENSIVE CONDITION

Now why, why would any more or less healthy person who is not expecting a baby sign up for health care? Pay the small fine, it's cheaper. Pay out-of-pocket for the one or two times you need to see a doctor or get a flu shot this year. It's still cheaper.

And if you find out that you have cancer, a heart condition, or (like myself) a chronic condition like ulcerative colitis which is going to require tens of thousands of dollars' worth of health care every year to manage... well, THEN sign up, and get the Gold option, and laugh at the clueless corporate fucks in the insurance industry who thought that getting into bed with the government and forcing everyone to buy their product, would actually result in moar profit...

If it ever did come to a point where an overthrow of the government was brewing, I suspect that recruiting would not be via posts on Slashdot.

You say this,. but it was a post on Slashdot 10 years ago that led me to move to New Hampshire. Now I pay no income or sales tax, am not legally required to buckle myself up in the car, can own any knife I damn well please, don't need a "permit" for a gun, can marry another man if I wanted to, and soon will have access to medicinal marijuana.

Go down and click my sig. Real shit happens in the real world, and you bet your ass it sometimes happens as a result of a slashdot post.

Just because he's dead is no reason to lay off work.
