a hosting platform for your company's secret patent and financial data, you store it on my servers, i sell it off to your competitors, the company is closed and i go retire... since it's a american corporation i won't be held liable for my subterfuge, worse case i blame it on "hackers".

Life is fair. to paraphrase that one movie "everything in nature tries to find a natural equilibrium with the surrounding environment", like how water tries to find it's level. the thing that makes life seem unfair are the actions of people who try to pervert this natural equality but fucking over their fellow man.

so Life is fair, people are not.
to quote that other movie

"i always thought life was what we make of it."

and in that line of reasoning i have always felt that we should strive to be fair and make the world a better, fairer place than give up and tote the line that somehow existence is naturally unfair (which is usually what is given as an explanation by those who are fucking you over to justify their actions).

"may actually have been worse in days gone by."

and they may not.

seriously, what's the point of making a statement that uses the word "may" when trying to frame a discussion. (although after trying to read your post a few times, i think the problem is either your frantic haste in writing the message or a lack of basic understand when it comes to sentence structure/english)

i've found that if i specify what i think im worth by giving them a number i feel is high for the position, most recruiters will tell you they can't pay that much and give you the opportunity to see what their max range is... then accept it or try to finagle a couple of bucks an hour/10k-year.

i typically go with current or past salary +20%-25%.

there was a thread about this last time dark-net markets were discussed on /., there is a law against drug sniffing or any other type of detection method against US postal items, it relates to an unlawful search, i.e. each parcel is the same as a car or home search, unlawful unless probable cause or a warrant.

"It is no more wrong to call piracy theft than it is to call it the same if you tap into your neighbor's cable so that you can get cable without paying for it. "

if i steal cable from my neighbor then his service is degraded and i am depriving him of something, if i copy a movie i make no degradation to the original and thus no harm.

esp since i'm never gonna pay to see the expendables 3, i might watch it for free tho... like when it plays on tv 4000x

""Blaming the victim" is telling a rape victim they shouldn't have been wearing a mini-skirt - they were asking for it. Telling guys to get out from behind the computer screen and talk to women as if they were people isn't victim blaming. It's telling them to take responsibility for their choices in how they interact with the world at large."

HAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHA omg are you serious... this has to be tongue in cheek no?

you don't see any similarity in telling a woman to be aware of her surroundings and how she presents herself to the world and telling me to take responsibility for their choices in how they interact with the world at large is the same exact thing?

All the simple programs have been written.
