Comment Doesn't fit the SJW agenda (Score 0, Flamebait) 115

I'm not surprised. The fact that the vast majority of the winners were Asians and Whites doesn't fit the SJW agenda so the program had to be cancelled. Intel is more interested in hiring based on skin color rather than merit. Funny how Asians never seem to count as a minority as far as SJWs are concerned despite making up an even lesser amount of the US population than most other minorities.

The US invented the internet. We set the rules, not you.

This is precisely why the UN should never be able to get anywhere near the internet. For all the faults of the US, it has the strongest free speech protections of any country in the world by leaps and bounds. In Europe, free speech doesn't exist because it is illegal to hurt someone's feelings.

This is a perfect example of over-engineering; designing something for flash rather than functionality. It reminds me of the Tesla and people getting locked out of their cars because someone thought it would be a good idea to have retracting door handles (complete with all the moving parts that can break down).

What is wrong with a simple slot for the pen? Why do you need an ejection mechanism? All that does is add unnecessary parts and over complicate the design.

The sole advantage of Firefox over Chrome these days is the fact that it's add-on SDK allows addons to modify just about any part of the browser. Chrome extensions are extremely limited in what they do. How will things like FileZilla work with this new API?

I'm convinced that either the Mozilla Foundation is run by complete mental midgets or plants by Google who are determined to sabotage the browser until the whole foundation shuts down.

As should the entire school district.

Defamation is never a felony. In a handful of states, it *might* be a misdemeanor under very specific circumstances.

In the US, in order to win a defamation case, with the exception of defamation per se (allegations of unchastity, allegations of a loathsome disease, allegations of a crime of moral turpitude, allegations injurious to trade, profession, or business), one has to prove actual damages. Even under the most strict of interpretations, the comment that Reid Sagehorn made could not be construed as defamation.
