It's all part of the long march toward fascism. Make every stupid little thing illegal so the government always has some surface justification to bother any person at any time.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
Yes, even cyanide.
I have, and if you haven't, then I dare you to take one. Bring snacks and a helmet.
The idea behind methadone is that you're not supposed to keep using it. You use it when detoxing to gradually step down, but surprise surprise, heroin addicts don't use it as intended.
Everything in moderation, including our excesses.
As a non-idiot I knew this was possible. I fight Chase regularly on this, they send a new card with the stupid chip, I call and roast em, they mail me a new one without the chip. But they tell me at the time that it is a one time only deal and sure enough they send another later in the year on a different card. Yes, because of mergermania I now have three credit cards but they are all Chase. They simply refuse to allow you to permanently opt out of this madness.
Stop! Hammer time!
Just be aware that there are ups and downs to every country. I've never been to the USA, but I suspect the political correctness is much worse here. You're expected to fit in, be polite and avoid open conflicts, and that includes the workplace.
In other words, JWSmythe should probably avoid Sweden.
Seriously, you have no idea.. I know JW, and the bloodpressure thing doesn't surprise me at all =]
Question: How does MailWasher work?
Answer: MailWasher works directly with your email server, exactly like your email program does. But there is one important difference: you can tell MailWasher to delete a message at the server, without downloading it - or you can bounce an email back to the sender so that it looks as though your address is not valid.
I haven't used it in years, but it seems to still work how I remember.
I think culturally this idea has a few things working for it. For one, I would hope that btards and anonidiots would have better things to do than hack nickjr's front page to put up some boobs or something, but I've given up trying to predict what the less mature black hat script kiddies think is funny. Maybe it would lead to a new crop of white hats who strive to find and report vulnerabilities. And if you report it to the site owner and they don't care, you'd have the option of reporting to the govt who could then threaten to revoke their license (kicking them off the new port but leaving 80 intact of course). Maybe Youtube could implement something like the moderation algorithm that has been kicked around on here.. you upload a video, you think it's kid safe so you flag it.. if 95% of random voters agree, then your video is made available on the "clean version" of Youtube.
I could go on, but you get the idea.. 1, set up a new thing, 2, block foreign servers (establish enforceable jurisdiction), 3, content providers provide content, 4, consumers have a choice, 5, uses mostly existing technology, 6, not too big a pain in any one person's ass.
