The question isn't whether WE can tell the difference, but whether those in the COURT SYSTEM can.
Cool, so I can put up a webpage alleging that you are a paedophile then?
Harassment, slander and libel
You just shot your own argument in the foot. As the GP said, existing laws cover the cases.
you're just a barbarian
Oh, like you can speak Greek either.
Yeah, I was a bit confused at that "She still deserves to go" comment as well.
[...] Glenn lifted off for a second space flight on October 29, 1998. He took flight on Space Shuttle Discovery's STS-95. At age 77, Glenn became the oldest person to go into space. Glenn states in his memoir that he had no idea that NASA was willing to send him back into space when NASA announced the decision. According to the New York Times, Glenn "won his seat on the shuttle flight by lobbying NASA for two years to fly as a human guinea pig for geriatric studies", which were named as the main reasons for his participation in the mission.
Glenn's participation in the nine-day mission was criticized by some in the space community as a political favor granted to Glenn by President Clinton. Others noted that Glenn's flight offered valuable research on weightlessness and other aspects of space flight on the same person at two points in life 36 years apart—by far the longest interval between space flights by the same person—providing information on the effects of spaceflight and weightlessness on the elderly, with an ideal control. Shortly before the flight, researchers learned that Glenn had to be disqualified from one of the flight's two main priority human experiments (about the effects of melatonin) because he did not meet one of study's medical conditions; he still participated in two other experiments about sleep monitoring and protein use.
"X violates the fundamental spirit of Y but at least it lets you copy its data to Z to handle it the old way" is not a reason to implement X.
Remiiiiind you of anything??
*cough*beta*cough* Still interested to see how long they wait in the hopes we cool down before they roll it out anyway.

Self-defeating trolls. Huh.
I actually did a "which systemd" on my current Mint XFCE install--which has GIMP installed and up-to-date--and got only silence.
Um...I know apt-get isn't shy about installing all kinds of dependencies when I need them...wat.
If you're talking about Deb & Ian, they apparently got a divorce in 2008 and Ian stepped down from project leader in 1996 anyway.
Then you run into the problem of verifying age to keep *actual* pedophile predators out...which means you need Real ID.
Maybe the answer is this thing we used to have called Real Life instead of communicating with their friends online.
This "third" option is really just the 2nd option.
While I sympathize with your sentiment, wouldn't that mean that free speech societies exist nowhere on earth? I would imagine every jurisdiction at least has a "fire in a crowded theater" clause. In which case, arguing one toe over the line disqualifies it as free speech means that free speech itself doesn't exist as a concept.
It's the same problem as "no true communism has ever existed." Maybe technically true, but just makes conversation more difficult.
If there's one thing I would really like to believe in, it's radically free speech. But as I get older, I have a harder and harder time finding things that I can label with absolutes.
why shouldn't I be liable for wrongdoing of my kid in cyberspace?
People's crazy-loose definition of what constitutes wrongdoing online.
"OtherOS would be OtherOS all over again"
Yeah, and there are plenty of things people stick in there that are labelled as not-bugs by the developers.
