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."
