Comment: Disproportion (Score -1, Flamebait) 230

So a smarmy guy makes a website to host homemade pornos of questionable provenance, then tries to charge prudes to have their videos removed. Pretty unsavory and undesirable, but it didn't physically harm anyone. In response the Kangaroo Kourt sentenced him to nearly two decades of daily rape and torture. I fear our legal apparatus has abandoned all sense of proportion in its mad rush to satisfy a lust for revenge.

How can we even speak of reform, when the hands of every judge in the Empire are soaked and dripping with blood?

What job titles and keywords are used in ads for troll operator positions? I would love to read some of their job postings.

Reading job ads is a good way to see what the Empire is actually working on. For instance, if you work on databases, the job ads in Northern Virginia are just fascinating. Read them for a while if you wish to be disabused of the silly notion that we live in a free republic. Similarly, I suspect job ads for troll operators would give some insight into the ideologies and memes promulgated by the financialist cybernetic police state.

I wouldn't say DICSS is a particularly useful piece of software, and I doubt it's gonna get very wide adoption. But it's a real Javascript library released under the MIT license. IMHO both the README and the parts of the source code are hilarious. YMMV.

The author of DICSS seems like a pretty good comedian. If lewd humor gets your knickers in a twist, you might prefer his Artisanal Javascript page instead.

Just exactly WHEN are you, you lazy fucking little sheep of a wussy man sitting on your couch reading this, going to GET UP OFF YOUR ASS, and call / write / visit your lawmaker and DEMAND that this shit be stopped?

Right after I finish shouting into the wind and shaking my fist at the sky.
