APK, scroll up and read through my posts again. Notice how they don't contain any personal attacks against you. Still, you respond like a child to anyone who questions anything you say.

I'll leave it at this: if you continue to spam Slashdot with your advertisements for software that blocks advertisements, then I'll put together a contact list that others can use to reach out to all of the people that you cite so that those people can hear from everyone who has to wade through your spam in order to find the discussions they're looking for on Slashdot. Those people deserve to hear how you're using their reputations. Your posts to others such as myself are obviously abusive in nature, you admit that you are willing to have your posts down-modded only to post the same content again, you demonstrably try to pick fights with anyone who questions any of your claims or asks you to stop spamming, and the people that you depend on for endorsements deserve to know how their endorsements are being used. You're welcome to call me whatever names you want, I can handle that, but at some point your ridiculous behavior has to stop.

There's a conspicuous lack of replies from APK, so hopefully Steve got through to him. I suppose there's something to learn here. If he continues to spam his application then the best course of action is to probably contact the people he's citing and let them know how their reputation is being used.

You didn't address any of my questions, just more trolling flamebait.

APK, don't you see the irony? You developed a piece of security software, yeah? And how have you chosen to market your security software? By making yourself a spammer. Surely you can see the irony.

Steven Burn sees the irony, because he already removed the forum thread that you're spamming. Keep up the same behavior and I think you'll find that he no longer sees it worthwhile to host the software of an abusive spammer. He would be correct also.

Face facts: Nothing you trolling worms can do can affect me - get it?

I'll be happy to email Steven Burn again. He already removed your thread, what happens if 100 people from Slashdot send him a message complaining about your abuse? Should I write up a post describing how to contact him and follow you around when you post your spam 9 times in a comment thread? Is that seriously what needs to happen for you to decide that maybe you shouldn't be a spammer?

I'll just burn you out of your modpoints (I've done so literally 175++ @ a time, lol) - so keep it up! I figure it this way - I can easily repost as much as I like & when you're all spent?

Awesome, APK. A threat to abuse the moderation system of Slashdot so that you can continue spamming. That is totally going to help your cause.

Mr. Steven Burn of Malwarebytes

Speaking of Mr. Steven Burn of Malwarebytes, he also said this in that same thread:

Thanks for letting me know. I'll have a word with him.

That's in regard to you spamming Slashdot comments, and he posted that in February. How did that conversation go? Because in this story from yesterday, you posted this exact text 9 different times in those comments, and since it's the end of the day before a holiday and no one is getting anything done anyway, I went ahead and found no less than 39 comments from you in that one story alone. There are only 101 comments total, 39 of them are yours, and 9 of those are that same wall of text advertising your software. That is the very definition of spam. You also posted this text, the one referencing Steven Burn, 4 different times in that comment thread. You are spamming a Slashdot comment thread with a link to a guy saying that he's going to talk to you about spamming Slashdot comment threads. What's going on here? Why is it necessary to go into the comments for certain stories and see tens of posts by you with either the exact same text or you arguing with other people about spamming? Why do we have to endure that on Slashdot? More importantly, do you think that makes you look good? Do you think it makes people want to try your software? What's the point? Why isn't it enough to post a single ad for your software, even though that would still be considered spam? Why do you need to do it 9 times? Can you give it a rest for the sake of everyone else?

U.S. District Judge Liam O'Grady just declared himself a traitor to the USA...hopefully he'll be treated appropriately.

You think so? Let's see what Article 3 of the Constitution says about that:

Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court.

Congress created the offense in 18 USC section 2381:

Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.

So, what's an enemy:

ENEMY, international law. By this term is understood the whole body of a nation at war with another. It also signifies a citizen or subject of such a nation, as when we say an alien enemy. In a still more extended sense, the word includes any of the subjects or citizens of a state in amity with the United States, who, have commenced, or have made preparations for commencing hostilities against the United States; and also the citizens or subjects of a state in amity with the United States, who are in the service of a state at war with them.

You could also look to the Bush-era definition of "enemy combatant", to include non-state actors:

'Enemy combatant' shall mean an individual who was part of or supporting Taliban or al Qaeda forces, or associated forces that are engaged in hostilities against the United States or its coalition partners. This includes any person who has committed belligerent act or has directly supported hostilities in aid of enemy armed forces.

So, noted law scholar MitchDev, how is the judge in this case a traitor to the US?

Great stuff, nice hobby.

I'm sorry, but I still maintain that Jeff Bezos' rocketry hobby is just that, the inconsequential hobby of a very rich man that will never really contribute much at all to the space "industry" other than having what essentially is a very expense drone for a guy that likes expensive toys.

Nobody said computers were going to be polite.
