Can you list all the things the kernel does in one line? coreutils? binutils? bash?
The root cause of all abuse is thinking other people are less important than your self, and as such can be treated worse than you.
Antisemitism comes from feeling of oppression (I guess. I really don't understand this one). Child abuse often justified as for their own good. Honour killings come from need to maintain honour. I am quite sure this is not a complete list. Even if the end result you propose would solve everything, how do we get there? Because just believing everyone is just as important as everyone else doesn't solve the abuse I listed above.
So tell me, how does shit-talking on the Internet reduce violence? What particular form of abuse is it efficient at solving?
Profanities won't solve it, nor am I advocating for them. But sometimes people in these sort of debates are so oblivious of the issues, I can understand why every other word a swear word.
I am sure you meant "All victims are women, all criminals are men"
And you should notice, that root causes for abuse are different. Unless you have an abuse solving fairy grandmother, that can magically solve all abuse, I am all for differential approach for reducing violence.
Why have any conversation about social issues? Since obviously opinions can't change.
Or do you think that whole
So, your friends respect women, jet make sexist jokes. Oh, if only those women could see past sexism and enjoy the laughs. Just like in school, the poor sod, who is being called gay for not acting manly enough, should just laugh with everybody else, because come on, that is just a joke.
At first I thought I should just go with classical "if X says that Y do Z, it means that enough of Y do Z for it to be a problem", like, if for some woman only 20% (made up number) of male colleges make sexist remarks, it is surely not ALL men, but still it can make life unbearable. When I was in school, I was bullied by about 4 of 33 classmates and, believe me, the fact that it was ONLY about 10% didn't help.
BUT reading your comment further I seriously doubt you would even notice if you were misogynist. First, you just disregard their experience with "didn't see it, you must be making this up" and then say they should shut up about it. Then, to prove the point, you engage in sexist activities (at least passively, by accepting sexism) as a revenge (WTF?). And to top it all, you say women should accept hostile workplace environment, because it is just the way it is, when in fact it is YOU, the tech people, who make the tech environment the way it is.
You are just like those, who say "I don't see racism around me, so it doesn't exist".
And electronic voting solve any of these problems?
The article points out that Estionian e-elections increase(!) risk of fraud. You just said, that since there can be fraud with conventional elections, it doesn't matter, how elections are done. It just makes no sense. If there are risks of fraud, they should be minimised, not increased.
> with paper voting, the person can (usually) just take a photo of their ballot with their cell phone to prove who they voted for.
Take picture of one ballot and submit another.
Already solved by not allowing non-voting persons in voting area (not only in voting booth).
Which part of the AGPL prevents you from using it in IMAP?
Since when is RMS considered a troll?
The way of Linux is to have one awesome kernel with no viable competition.
The "mess up your life" translates as "sabojat tavu dzivi". Right now it says "mess up ones own life". And no, slashdot is still not friendly to non-latin alphabets.
I have used Windows 8 only so far as to install it, but in login menu the power and accessibility buttons were just flat.
