No, the problem is women simply don't make as good of soldiers as men. They are smaller and have less strength, speed, and endurance. There's no way around it. If we replaced male soldiers with female ones, the army would be less effective. It's not always sexism when there's inequality.

Why should I have to live on a carbon budget? Just because Al Gore or some other liberal nutcases (with an agenda to promote green products, of course) tell me so? No way. If I make enough money to live an extravagant lifestyle, you can bet your bottom dollar I'm gonna do it! Global warming is happening regardless of what we do , and there's nothing we cab do to stop it. The best we can do is mitigate its effects. It's largely a natural cycle that has happened time and time again in the earth's past, and we just have to adjust to it. And as humans, the most intelligent creature on this rock, we sure as hell will find a way to do so. Long story short, we should focus our energies on adapting rather than running around in circles screaming that the sky is falling.

Amen to this. I know it's a controversial position to take,but women have equality (if not superiority) to males. The only reason women don't run the world is because they choose not to. They choose to have children instead. Fair enough, but you can't have it both ways, ladies. And as for the lack of equality in gaming, IT, tec., women simply have different interests. We hate to admit things are biological these days (seems to upset the PC liberals), but women naturally are drawn to more childcare type positions (nursing, teaching). Big deal. And right now, the law is so stacked against men it's not even funny. Domestic abuse? The woman wins by default. Child support, child custody, alimony? Again, men get screwed big time. All of this is in addition to chivalry by males (paying dinners, etc.) and of course, biologically, women still have mate choice, so they can (and many do) use their bodies to have power over men in morally repulsive ways. And I feel really sorry for young men growing up right now, especially those being raised ny single mothers. They are so feminized, by their parents and the school system, which favors women by punishing men for being active and forces them into a more passive feminized role. Sorry this seems to have turned into a rant, but this really needs to be said, because you almost never hear the opposite point of view (at least not in the mainstream).

Ubuntu phones don't have to battle with anybody, just like Linux doesn't need to conquer the desktop. All it needs to provide is an open source Linux based phone that respects users' privacy (Android is spyware so it doesn't count) and sells just enough to give them reason to produce future phones.

Stallman is batshit insane though, and doesn't even come close to representing the average FOSS user. That would be like thinking all liberals are like Michael Moore or all conservatives are like Rush Limbaugh. The average FOSS advocate just wants his software to work. He prefers FOSS because it is more secure and has the user's interests in mind, unlike software like iTunes that tries to sell users stuff or Chrome that tracks you and sells your data to the highest bidder. The average FOSS user doesn't care if there are binary blobs and doesn't mind using Adobe's Flash because it's way better than any of the open alternatives. This is also the reason Ubuntu and Mint are so popular, not GNUSense or whatever other totally free alternative he recommends. Tl;dr, Stallman shouldn't and represent the FOSS community, and although his ideas might be good in principle, the average user just wants his software to work on par or better than what he used to use on Windows.

How can you assure the people and peers on the darknet aren't government agents? It's the same way government brings down pedophile and identity theft rings - pose as a member, gain trust, gather information, and then act on it (which could be, depending on what government we are talking about, anything from arrest to making you disappear).

Facebook probably has some way of knowing if a message has been read, even if the "message read" flag has been set back to unread. If so, I'm sure a court order could force them to produce this information. Of course it's a bit more difficult to know if they read the message title or the partial message that gets sent with an email when you have a new message, but in both these cases it could be easy to prove the message hasn't been seen (there was no email and messages weren't checked since the message was sent). Regardless though, if you saw a summary of a message that mentioned legal action (or even just saw the message was from someone you knew was taking legal action), I think it's pretty easy to conclude, beyond reasonable doubt, that the message was viewed. There's no good reason to not view it if it potentially is that important.
