I don't think it was about being christian as much as it was annoying. While the guy who got physical was raised to belive in God, the extent of worship and practice was likely thanking god when he got lucky or something.
I mean the guy sat through it several times before getting physical and warned him to shut up about it. I hang out in some rough bars, even worked at some as a bouncer (although not this one). People get upset over the dumbest things when drinking sometimes. I remember breaking up a fight because someone played rap music on the juke box. I saw a fight over some girl saying she got beat by one of them 15 years prior to the fight. Another time there was an off duty cop who kept trying to buy drugs and several people knew he was a cop and beat his ass. That was interesting because i was a witness at the trial, the defense said they beat him up because he kept interupting him on a date asking for drugs not because he arrested him several years prior. The guy ended up with one year probation and two weeks jail suspended based on the probation.
Like in the example i gave, they don't realize how obnoxious they are. The point of my post was that people don't think they are doing anything wrong or offensive when they are.
Most people i knpw that live on a flood plain do so after the civil engineers and army core of engineers built the dams to control the flooding. For instance in my home town area, they built a series of five resiviors for flood control that allowed industrial lands near the river and old erie canal to be safe for residential use once the canal was closed. Over the years, two of those dams had been removed instead of replaced and urban sprawl has changed the amounts of watershed which has turned areas never considered a flood risk into a flood zone.
It really isn't a matter of someone saying this looks nice, now build a dam and protect me with public money. If that were the case, i would completely agree with you.
Here is why thr tea pot doesn't fit. Not only are you saying you hsvn't convinced me, but it isn't true and you are stupid too.
You see, the second two parts are affirmative asertions outside what you were asked to believe and require just as much weight as you place on the burden of proof yourself. Its like you saying you spilled wine on the carpet a couple of weeks ago and it didn't stain it. You have no way to prove it to me so i can either trust you or not. But when i say you had no wine and you didn't spill anything, i do need to validate that.
This is likely more true than not. Society and even familiy has historically sought to increase its safety in security as well as resources like food and of course labor by increasing its population. Homosexuality would deprive such benifits as so would masterbation that until recently was taboo too.
Whether this dislike of what would defeat population growth and hence the security of the unit is instinctual or learned might be a good question to explore. But it is something that doesn't need religion to flourish.
I don't doubt what he says because i think i know who he is in other posts. He likely walked into a prayer meeting held by some jocks before a football game and started refering to god as a sky fairy then attempted to explain the fiction of religion and how he was too smart to fall for it like those idiots.
You can see people like that all over
. Kind of hard to do with a single piece of equipment though.
The poster you are responding to spoke of blue-ray players in the plural. No risk of a single piece of equipment failing here.
Apparently being without a movie playing for more than 10 seconds is a very frightening thing. He needs multiple players
so that he has no single point of failure.
Trust my ass...
Sounds more like burying them in useless information to justify your high price of maintenance contracts.
People see through this snow job very quickly.
People want summary information, not line by line code change logs.
The OP asks "Can you provide PUBLICLY AVAILABLE REFERENCES on the pros and cons of open and honest communication of changes and bug fixes, especially in commercial environments?"
Well he may have asked for that, but I wager he knows better than to expect Slashdot to do his google work for him.
Instead, he gets a multitude of opinions, which, for someone too lazy to google, is all they deserve.
There are bugs in software. Everyone knows that.
All people want to know is that the big issues are fixed. New functionality is added, or old functionality is made easier to use.
Nobody cares about spelling errors corrected.
That kind of stuff is used to justify your job to your boss (found 17 client facing spelling errors, here is the list......
That isn't the kind of stuff any customer is looking for.
I find the whole topic rather contrived. Does this guy not use software purchased from others?
Does he sit waiting with baited breath for each release, and track down every minor change and spelling correction?
Who does that? Who would care?
Your customers are lucky, they get to know that something changed. If you were making 'cloud' software, they wouldn't know anything changed until they logged in one morning and things are broken.
Not sure you need that much detail to know something is happening and something changed.
Many companies just mention "bug fixes" as a general category that covers typos or potential problems that no one has actually reported.
We just mention things that users have reported, improvements they have asked for, and limitations that were removed and new capabilities added.
We've issued some updates with the single statement "Bug Fixes".
We've issued other updates that require extensive documentation changes as well as conversion steps to get to the new version.
But no one needs to see every t you belatedly cross or every i you finally got around to dotting. People want to see progress in features and functions, and as little disruption to their work flow as possible.
I cannot tell you why people are living in those places. I imagine there are lots of reasons ranging from economics to resorces to preference. I just know that we have the abilities to mitigate the risks should we want to.
