Speak for yourself, Mr. Hippo. This morning I woke up next to a woman who I even happened to meet online.

Don't mind if I do. I also woke up next to a woman. The same woman I've woken up next to for well over a decade. The same woman I'll wake up to in the future as long as God keeps us in this world.

I do in fact think it's immoral to facilitate the destruction of men and their families. Unlike a gun or a knife which has many uses outside of killing, there is no other purpose to Ashley Madison than the wholesale destruction of men's lives as well as the destruction of the lives of others around them.

Comment Re:Married people are dodging taxes (Score 1) 161

I think he's talking about the fact that you can claim your spouse as a dependent.

That being said... if you earn enough, you run into the marriage penalty. That is, someone making a little over 400k by themselves will pay the same tax rate as two people making a little over 400k together rather than 800k as one would expect.

Comment Re:Port it away from Java... (Score 1) 56

Are those feelings or do you have data to back that sentiment up? Yes the Java jre has a few ethical problems (I'm looking at you, planned yahoo toolbar), however, the language itself isn't bad. It has one of the most mature development communities out there. With the addition of Streams and Lambdas, I think it's finally hit a nice balance between complexity and features.

Leveraging always beats prototyping.
