I generally agree. I'd rather have more stories available, and then just ignore the ones I don't care about, than limit the selection. I even like the occasional borderline offtopic controversy, just because the discussions are generally interesting. It may be mostly unproductive, but even political flamefests are at least better argued here than most other places I visit on the web, and occasionally I learn a little something.

From TFA:

...we are committed to making it easy for our Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 customers to upgrade to Windows 10.

In other words they're making it as difficult as possible to avoid upgrading.

Yeah, at this point I think lots of until-recently customers would like to make it easy for Microsoft's executives to walk into a moving baseball bat.

Comment Typical federal government tactic (Score 1) 246

Step 1) Take money from states' citizens under threat of violence.

Step 2) Only give it back if those states promise to use it in the manner demanded by the federal government.

And because the SCOTUS doesn't admit any limitations on the reasons or extent of federal taxation, the feds can get whatever they want via taxation.

In college, my speech teacher said "tell them what you're going to tell them, tell them, then tell them what you told them".

Your speech teacher was a hypocrite then. He should have said, "I'm going to tell you to tell them what you're going to tell them, and then I'm going to tell you to tell them, and then I'm going to tell you to tell them what you told them. Okay, with that out of the way, tell them what you're going to tell them, tell them, then tell them what you told them. In summary, I have told you to tell them what you're going to tell them, I have told you to tell them, and then I have told you to tell them what you told them."
