I gave three representative examples, two of which were connected. I could dig up more links but why bother when faced with wilfull ignorance.
Given the current state of psychology research, "when the results have been independently replicated and have been shown not to be statistical artifacts, cherry picking, or outright fraud" would be a good first step.
I guess management is always retarded, even at google.
The issue is the balance between public safety and personal privacy. Denying the citizen of any democracy the right to encryption of their personal communication is not an appropriate response to the perceived threat to public safety that same encryption would bring.
Look at the existing franchise laws and how they are being used. It's not really a question that bribes are occurring, it's what lobbying is by it's very definition.
Absolutely. You know why? Efficient taxation should result in more tax money coming in. If they can't do so, that's a fault of putting out inefficient taxes.
The posix subsystem was usable on NT4. Not so much since then. The latest version is basically a wrapper around the GNU tools and is more about Microsoft checking boxes on government forms when bidding on projects than anything else.
Cygwin is not perfect but I'd say it has far less issues than what MS offers.
Network authentication for UNIX systems relies on the insecure NIS protocol (LDAP- and Kerberos-based authentication require a third-party solution). Microsoft has released several hotfixes for Windows Services for UNIX, and at least one Security Update (KB939778). The GNU Project utilities are several versions older than the latest ones. A separate port of the up-to-date Debian utilities was started in 2007, but apparently abandoned in 2009. Several of the text processing utilities in SUA (e.g. awk) are not compatible with Unicode or wide character text files.
I can't think of one application where Cygwin would not be far more beneficial than MS's half ass attempt at being Unixy.
As if ensuring the survival of the human race isn't "productive". And, personally, I can''t think of anything more important that my wife does than be the awesome mother she is to our children. Now, while she's young and has the energy to go outside and play with them...
You know how everything you said is 100% false?
When the captain says "brace for impact", if someone is deaf and on their phones? How much of a difference is it going to make? Zero. Now apply the same to people who can hear, and guess what? Same impact.
Huh, did not know that but I usually only map inbox so that's probably why. If I get my gmail from anywhere but the web interface it's just to do a quick check. If I have to respond to something new I log into gmail.
As other's have stated using the Report Spam feature should make 99% of spam a thing of the past by putting in the spam folder.
The Original Submitter did not say but based on their description of running their own MX I would guess they are using IMAP (or maybe POP) to pull down their gmail to a local client and thus missing out on the opportunity to mark them as spam...
I occasionally check my gmail from a local client but use the web interface enough to help the spam filter figure me out by marking messages as spam or phishing (or on very rare occasions marking something as Not Spam).
The first example is an MP. The second is an activist who had the strong backing of an MP.
The third one, well maybe karma had something to do with it if you believe in that sort of thing, but the story is thin on details and the death of the troll may or may not be related to the actual trolling.
Show me some articles where regular people, not famous, not extremely rich or connected to a government, were given any attention/positive results by law enforcement after reporting being harassed on line.
Well, they bought Verisign so if you used their SSL services you were switched to Symantec. And it appears that they still have a lot of market share in that area even though I'm sure a lot of existing Verisign customers screamed Nooooooo!! at the top of their lungs when they heard about the buyout and switched to something else as soon as possible*.
