Should your google queries be put in a slow lane with 10k ms ping because they didn't fork over $100 mil for premium service?
Should netflix pay premium for every mb because they're a "high bandwidth user" or face throttling to speeds where compression drops to 120p?

Should ISPs be allowed to have an even more oppressive position than they already have?

a) What about the hiatus?
b) instrumental data from the layers of the atmosphere does not agree with the proposed mechanisms of stratospheric heating or whatever was suggested.
c) human CO2 emissions are naturally absorbed, just not as fast as we emit it. but given a) and b) and the fact that CO2 is non toxic and improves plant growth I see no reason why we should care about that as opposed to particulate pollutions and toxic emissions.

Why would you need luck to survive the escape vehicle separation? It's obviously designed to accelerate at sublethal G forces.
Regarding the challenger disaster: it had no escape possibilities AND the crew telemetry from the challenger showed them as alive until the remnant they were seated in hit the sea.

Current climate models are useless and needs to be reworked, observations have contradicted their predictions and the fundamental assumption that "CO2 = main thermostat, everything else is irrelevant, lets make a wildly increasing graph and alarmist claims" have been wrong from day 1 and very much not scientific at all.

This paper doesn't change anything at all. It's just a restatement of a year old apologist paper.

It's not actually work related. It's about their opinions.

The author of the article isn't getting shit because she's a lead developer, she's getting shit because she writes articles on gender equality in gaming. Her example persons are also having some female-centric activities.

If I write a gaming opinion piece called "Mens world: why game devs should ignore all whining women and focus on their main demographic" I'd also get a lot of angry mail and spiteful messages. If I write a followup article after such hatemail called "Ruling elite: how a small minority of females with an interest in games try to hijack the industry and suppress dissident opinon" I'd get even more shit heaped onto me.

Is this a sign that I'm harassed because my gender? Is it a sign that the gaming demographic is full of bad persons? Or is it a sign that inflammatory opinion pieces will always result in hatemail?

Anyone prone to willfull abuse will use CWE and get rid of the acetaminophen. Some elderly person getting addicted will instead kill itself.
Drug prescription rules and opinions about drugs are hyped the fuck up and retarded, there's several completely safe drugs that's prescription only and some pretty awful ones that's free for everyone.

To the systems programmer, users and applications serve only to provide a test load.
