Iceland Considers Internet Porn Ban 684

Onymous Hero writes "With the printing and distribution of pornography already banned in Iceland, further measures to stop internet porn are being considered by Iceland's Interior Minister Ogmundur Jonasson. From the article: "Iceland is taking a very progressive approach that no other democratic country has tried," said Professor Gail Dines, an expert on pornography and speaker at a recent conference at Reykjavik University. "It is looking a pornography from a new position — from the perspective of the harm it does to the women who appear in it and as a violation of their civil rights.""

Well, look at it this way, if a dinosaur stepped in mud and left a print, then a man came along and stepped in the same mud and left a print, it's hard to believe there were millions of years between the two incidents. If what you say is true than the science of determining the passage of time through stratification is just plain false. Even a thousand years or so leaves things buried, that is why we have archaeological digs. I know there are exceptions, but I find it hard to believe that the mud the dinosaur stepped in was uncovered by an earthquake or whatever and still fresh enough that some human could leave a print in it a million years later.

No, and I hope that you are not so stupid just to assume that it is fake just because you don't think it's real. I trust the dude by the Paluxy River more than I trust your sage insight, though not enough to believe it without some form of verification. Hence, I figured this was a great time to get the opinion of a guy who has probably studied the evidence.

and it's all free free free... only the banks pay, tax payers don't pay, bank customers don't pay, the bankers pay and we all know they would never pass their costs on to us!

In the end, nothing is free. It all costs us something. We may not see it (such as corporate taxes) but in the end we all do pay for it.

When a bank is robbed, its customers don't lose money. When a bitcoin repository is robbed... ?

When a bank gets robbed, us citizens pay for the loss either through bank fees and such or through the (in the case of the us) fdic. In either case, the money is gone. Before fdic came along, if a bank was robbed of enough, it went under and everyone lost their money.

Go to school!! That or get ready for many years of having to work harder just to prove yourself over and over again! Another alternative is contract to hire. That may work as well.

On another note,hopefully you have learned about the necessity of Version control. You also hopefully have been learning good CS practices such as only having one source for information (code functionality is information) abstraction etc. There are good reasons for these practices and the sooner you learn them the more valuable you will be.

Also, don't be a information hoarder or a primadona! Be willing to talk and work withouther sharing ideas and concepts. Sometimes the idiot next to you will surprise you with just all that he does really know.

Good luck!

Submission + - Did Apple Reject An App And Copy It In iOS 5?->

dkd903 writes: Apple announced iOS 5 a few days back and they have “copied” a lot of features from others. If a report on The Register is to be believed, Apple has sunk to a new low. They rejected an app called wi-fi sync last year and have incorporated the same in iOS 5 when it was unveiled this week.
