Let me sum the whole argument up. The 2nd amendment is often misinterpreted to mean that a militia is required for gun ownership. In fact, it is the opposite. Guns are required in order to have a militia. Put into simplified modern language, the amendment reads "Because we need a well regulated militia, we must ensure that the people have a right to carry weapons".

In other words, the militia is not a condition for gun ownership. Gun ownership is a condition for having a militia.

Yes, mine does . When they implemented this, they openly informed everyone and held a Q&A session. Certificates were provided along with setup instructions for browsers. I don't have an issue with it for 3 reasons.

1) They were open about it from day 1.
2) They do not intercept and inspect connections with certain types of sites(banking, healthcare, etc.) and YES I have verified this.
3) They have obviously limited the ports being intercepted(kind of pointless) because I can establish HTTPS connections to servers using non-standard ports without the normally required certificate. This also means that I can tunnel all of my internet activity via SSH through my home server when I choose to.

What was loved about Slashdot does not appear in the new design — those creating the latter, please fire yourself and go work for a commercial consumer site (which we never read, and never will). OUR site should work without JavaScript, and JavaScript that IS used should to do something actually desired by a reader or commenter, not waste our bandwidth and CPU, and electricity, sending CRAP onto our computers. Improvements/ plugins, http://userstyles.org/styles/9..., won't be enough."

There, fixed that for ya.

People like that will use any "argument" to justify what they are doing, no matter how illogical. They will not care whether they worked for what they have. The only goal is to pull everyone down to their level, because they know they are too lazy too succeed on their own.

The non-techies in most families who actually use computers and smart phones are typically already accustomed to a particular OS/device. It's much easier to support their occasional need than to spend countless hours explaining how to make this new thing do what the old thing did. Now, if the FSF membership came with tech support for FSF supported items, I'd buy them one of those in a heartbeat.

You are an insult to my intelligence! I demand that you log off immediately.
