Bullshit. These guys need to read Black Like Me . And then try it out for themselves.
Actually, your way doesn't sound too bad. Might have to give it a try. Can't quite come at gizzards or hearts, though.
Case in point: s/This why/This is why/
Former news reporter here.
This why news outlets sometimes issue updates, corrections, or even retractions--because it's not a perfect world, and the folks who work in the news media are no more omniscient than you are.
No way, José. Dipped in batter and deep-fried is the only way to go.
There was a book about this. It was called Protector.
You're obviously not a marketer. Bully for you.
It doesn't even need to be an exclusive copyright. This worked out pretty well for MySQL. They made sure to get at least shared copyright for all contributed code so they could release and licence commercial versions.
It's an attempt to replace traditional carpooling/ridesharing with something Uber can skim off of. Inserting themselves as a middleman where none is needed.
I think causing harm to others who are doing you none is a definite sign of mental illness.
All religion is false religion. Doesn't alter what I said, though.
It's been said that no man is an island.
The point I was trying to make is that I was apparently being mischaracterised as a spoilt rich kid who'd had everything handed to him on a silver platter, not that I'm some sort of superhero. I'm neither of those.
I've tried to pay back those who've helped me, but I've lost contact with most of them (easy to do after a decade or two, when you've wound up living on the other side of the world), and some of them are no longer around. So now I try to do the same for others.
And I've already admitted that one of the reasons--possibly THE reason--I ended up in the bad state I was in was due to my own mistakes. Quite a lot of them, actually, including doing some shit that was just plain wrong. Some of those things I think I've paid for by now, others maybe not. We'll see.
I'm sorry, am I a Google fanboi or a Google hater today? I keep getting categorised as one and then the other so often that I've grown confused.
Or is it that I'm an idiot because I think users should be treated with a bit of respect?
I can't tell any more.
I do know that where I work--as I said before--we don't consider how many or even IF there are any users of a particular feature or API before we drop it. We have a deprecation process for such things, and AFAICT we stick to it.
So they're just automatically ripping people off and this makes it all better?
In at least one of those cases, Muslim friends had expressed concern that the new "convert" wasn't really a convert because he wasn't in his right mind. Pretty sure I saw this mentioned by the BBC.
