Let me get this straight, in the same post you complain that we won't work together and fix the problem and then also chastise "socialism" - Do you think there is a private company who would be doing this save for the chains of government?

Thats not how argument works - you don't get to make some rediculous unqualified statement and then weasel out of providing support for it - but because its Friday and I'm up for a rabbit chase, start with this one

Second, private and voucher schools have the best special needs education in the world. Their care far surpasses anything you'll find in public school. They also have the best schools for troubled children that have obedience issues.

Oh yes, talking about cloud services on megaupload is the same as talking about large scale enterprise cloud services on AWS or Google - stop with the FUD please, I already had my daily dose of BS. Cloud services are not a panacia, but used in conjustion with on site and other 3rd party back up they can help small and medium business expand quicker than if they were required to purchase everything in house.

Do you realize that TV sitcoms don't portray real life to any meaningful degree of accuracy? I found both worthwhile, and enjoy seeing both friends from high school and friends from college - the subsets don't really intersect at all either.

This is the problem with trying to please Comic book people in a major motion picture ADAPTATION. The script writers have to take short cuts to make the movie film length, and that cuts into the many years of development that exists in Comic book universe. It's absurb to think that the writers need to stay so many degrees away from the comics, as it is a completely different medium to tell a similar story. If you want complex back stories, stick to a medium which can build upon the stories. Feature Films are not your bag, but don't try to ruin it for the rest of us.

The correct solution is for adults to help kids learn how to deal with it, not find ways to make it illegal.

And when the adults are part of the problem? You could have just as easily said:

Being abused/raped/assulted etc... is a part of life. It's GOING to happen. It sucks, but that's how it is.

And it would have sounded just as stupid.

You like to generalize, don't you. Are you discounting and support contracts that would be generated through FOSS support companies. Just because the license is free doesn't mean it doesn't generate jobs, or cost money on the bottom line. Would you feel the same way if any other industry making a move? Are you just irrationally biased against lawyers?

Except people DO treat it like legal advice - and it gives the impression that any will or trust it generates is legally sound. The problem here lies that people who do really on these programs will not have their actual wishes carried out because the software didn't intake properly, or failed to account for X scenario. I don't beleive the best course of action for the profession is to sue on unauthorized practice statutes, but more should be done to protect the public from these types of operations.

Like punning, programming is a play on words.
