Comment: This is so Republican (Score -1, Troll) 129

Their kind shits on the truth and lies lies lies. They lie to promote and help their kind and their ways. That is what they do. They even often lie when it just doesn't matter. They just lie for fun. Now Linus wants every Linux user to lie. That is what this is about. He wants to turn us into liars where lying as a daily thing we do for fun becomes normal. This Republican-created crap has destroyed this country and is infecting the world. For them, it's all about the lies.

No, we should tell the truth. If we are better than Windows, then we should tell the truth. This demand we lie and say we're down at their level is morally wrong.

He is a Hollywood reporter and editorialist. That is stupid of your to compare him to someone that was supposed to have been a real journalist. Being a Hollywood reporter in no way compares to leading the news organization at one of the three networks. It's disingenuous for you Republicans to do that. You're are lying to try to make Faux Knews look like a news organization. It is not. Hollywood Bill's lies in no way compare to Brian Williams. You are giving him, his job, and the entertainment organization he works for too much. We see through your agenda of promoting Faux Knews. We know better.

Wow, there are so many Republican trolls here now.

Confirmed that this is still a serious bug on an updated CentOS 7 system:

# cat /etc/redhat-release
CentOS Linux release 7.0.1406 (Core)
# sed -i s#/usr/sbin/named#"/usr/sbin/named -broken"#g /usr/lib/systemd/system/named.service
# systemctl daemon-reload ; echo $?
# journalctl -r -u named
# sed -i s#"/usr/sbin/named -broken"#/usr/sbin/named#g /usr/lib/systemd/system/named.service

Notice the exit status of 0. systemd doesn't return the correct exit status. Also, when viewing the journal, you'd expect to see the error:

usage: named [-4|-6] [-c conffile] [-d debuglevel] [-E engine] [-f|-g]
                          [-n number_of_cpus] [-p port] [-s] [-t chrootdir] [-u username]
                          [-m {usage|trace|record|size|mctx}]
named: unknown option '-b'

but it is not in the journal. systemd swallows the stderr output and reports the incorrect exit status. This makes it very difficult to troubleshoot start-up problems. I've wasted many hours because of this systemd bug.

It used to be great. It did exactly what you needed it to do and no more. Now it is a bloated mess like Azureus/Vuse. Now when I load UTorrent, my Windows machine slows down so much it is unusable. It loads gigabytes of ads per day. I have ISDN at home right now, and if you let it run 24/7, you can still download a surprising amount of files. That is except with the new version of uTorrent. It makes the ads a higher priority than BitTorrent so your files take days or weeks longer than they should.

Bullshit. You just hate Bono because he supports freedom. The IRA has been fighting against your kind for decades. You people forced them to resort to bombings of innocent people. You are responsible for the death of children. You and your kind. Bono is right to support violence when fighting against this sort of horrific opression.

> site passed UAT

And that is the crux of the issue! The Democratic governor appointed a group to manage the user acceptance testing (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Acceptance_testing#User_acceptance_testing). The site passed. At that point, Oracle is not responsible for any flaws. It was reviewed and tested by the customer and accepted. Also, a group of subject matter experts (SME) picked by the governor were involved in every step of the process and approved every step. That proves the governor is a DINO. He is not a Democrat. He might be a fake member of the party, but he is really a Republican. He didn't want his subjects to be able to get health care. Just last week he and 15 other state employees resigned for stealing money. The IRS is no investigating them. Republicans are a cancer.

They had a working web site that Oregon had signed off on. Anything that didn't work wasn't Oracle's fault at that point. Because Oregon was ruled by a DINO at the time, every problem is the fault of the Republicans. The Republicans that rule that shithole of a state are responsible.

> actually supposed to go on dates with these people

No. That isn't how it works. That isn't how it works at all. I've been on half a dozen different sites and received thousands of messages, but never actually met someone in person from a dating site. They're a great ego booster.

If you can't understand it, it is intuitively obvious.
