I suppose that's better than wallchan...
How is alleging something about his mother's situation in life helping?
Good for you guys! I'm betting this will really improve officer behavior, but only if the penalties for "malfunctions" are severe, e.g. disciplinary actions against the LEO and never pressing charges against anyone during whose arrest a "malfunction" has occurred.
I just love how people who constantly complain about how buggy and unreliable everything is--and justifiably so, by and large--imagine that there's no way to activate a booby trap by mischance or hostility.
Speaking of arrogance, it takes quite a bit of it, that, or paranoia, to imagine that people in a data center know or care what you're doing with your equipment there. They all have jobs to do, and if you're doing something so sensitive that you think the risk of being spied on in the data center is that high, you should probably have your own data center. That, or lay off the meth^Wcoffee.
Everybody was kung-fu fighting.
Your assumption that content people might find--Facebook or elsewhere--that is more harmful to them than a censorship policy just handed down to them--is false. This is your chance to confront the people asking you to implement the policy with a couple of questions:
1. Given all the ways people get uncensored internet even under autocratic regimes where the penalties are brutal, what makes you think any censorship policy could work?
2. Which feasible projects are you willing to divert resources from in order to tilt at this windmill?
Don't let them answer 2. until they've got 1. well in hand.
Yep. Fast. Cheap. Good.
That's actually the optimistic perspective. Given skill, experience and good will, you could pick up to two. Frequently, the most you could have is one, or in sadly common cases, zero.
Um, excuse me, but did it escape your notice that the vast majority of terrorists in this country are white "Christians" on the extreme right?
Complaints, at least ones not issued via Ouija board, would probably decrease
You know someone was going to ask. It's me.
With what AGPL software did you run across this situation?
Here I thought I was fairly late to the party.
I don't think the word, "coercion" means what you think it means. Are you really in a position to force Intel to do anything? Really?
s/no thinking required/thinking actively discouraged/
Actually, this could be pretty significant if it takes some clever machine rather than a host of gigantic centrifuges to do the job.
