There's no reason to believe that if you haven't paid attention to their previous bullshit.
The other day a conspiracy nut tried to tell me that Kill Bill wasn't a documentary and that they filmed the whole thing on a sound stage somewhere in Los Angeles.
In case you're still looking, pipe dot seems to be doing a good job, although the amount of community involvement isn't that high yet.
Wishing the banking industry on the world reveals your ignorance or malice.
The last time I was in Shenzhen, it was perfectly sunny and in fact too hot outside. Neither did I notice any haze when I was in Hong Kong last month. Maybe you picked a bad time to go.

I'd like SN to succeed and viable competition should force Slashdot to improve, but it's going to take some real effort.
Sorry, but it sounds like you don't know how pervasive monocultures are in modern agriculture. Thanks to globalization, even peasants living largely without the benefit of industrialization grow whichever crop will earn them the most money. Just as an example, in Laos, one of the least developed countries in the world, state-owned Chinese corporations are creating huge rubber plantations at the expense of huge swaths of native ecosystems. The chicken exists because of its commoditization, and it will take just one commodity that's more profitable to wipe it out entirely. Don't underestimate the degree to which economics has already shaped most--if not all--of the modern world.
The actual solution to unfair property taxes is to adjust property taxes.

I'm glad there are a few people here who recognize this. Mathematics requires computation, but since its inception in Greek geometry that has never been the focus of the subject. Writing proofs is almost exactly like writing code, and it's not a coincidence.
