Comment From TFA (Score 5, Insightful) 303

Since I've unexpectedly RTFA, just a heads up, the headline is even more biased than usual. On the total number of active websites, there are still about 10x as many apache websites than IIS. Same picture for the top million busiest sites. There's almost no yearly change, and the server gaining the most marketshare is NGINX.

I'm starting to believe the hearsay: Slashdot has really been totally overrun by astroturfers (in this case paid by Microsoft). Maybe dice sells a number of "promotional posts" on a biased article to various companies, one of them being Microsoft?

So they were obligated to switch from oats to corn starch and sugar in order to free themselves of GMOs?
No non-GMO oats possible!! 1!11 WTF?
This WTF piece of news really lacks respect to its readers!

Are you a biologist with a specialization in system ecology? And even then, it's impossible to predict the total short-, mid- and longterm effect of a genetic modification/combination. Non-GMO organsims have been tested for safety for 1000 of years in the biggest lab know to man: the planet earth itself. GMO organisms must carry a huge benefit to make me even consider them as a wise choice.

Unbelievable, all these shortsighted and dare I say dumb replies really make the GP's point for him. Of course it is better to operate as a group because it gives you an advantage, and you can bet that the exploiters around got the memo and are operating as a group. Even if you think you're "among the best" you lose a whole lot of bargaining power by going solo just out of some sick kind of narcissism. That you've been brainwashed to this point by propaganda instilled into you since your youth is a truly scary thought.
