Look who's talking.

Let me know how many more church massacres we need to experience before we decide that letting tens of thousands of vitriolic racists congregate on the "front page of the internet" may not be such a good idea.

If they can filter Reddit for pedophiles and intellectual property abuse then I think they can do it for pure HATRED, which, IMO, ranks far closer to the top than the bottom of that short list of what won't be tolerated on Reddit.

Comment Apple & Taylor Swift aside... (Score 1) 368 368

... did the poor artists on Apple's music service sign something which allows Apple to distribute their music for free? Are new artists STILL giving away the rights to their own music? Has nothing been learned in the past 10-20 years? Or can these small labels & artists sue the living shit out of Apple over this?

Legal or not, false scarcity is an abuse of intellectual property rights, as are indefinite terms, lack of refunds, and the spamming of some IP all over the goddamn place while still expecting to 'own' control of it. I'm sure there's more but I still need coffee....
