You think that is bad I know someone who is still running Aol.
In May 2014, Cyrus Farivar reported on his efforts to learn what the feds know about me whenever I enter and exit the country. In particular, he wanted my Passenger Name Records (PNR), data created by airlines, hotels, and cruise ships whenever travel is booked.
ASK ARS: CAN I SEE WHAT INFORMATION THE FEDS HAVE ON MY TRAVEL?
One Ars editor tries to FOIA travel documents on himself.
But instead of providing what he had requested, the United States Customs and Border Protection (CBP) turned over only basic information about my travel going back to 1994. So he appealed—and without explanation, the government recently turned over the actual PNRs I had requested the first time.
The 76 new pages of data, covering 2005 through 2013, show that CBP retains massive amounts of data on us when we travel internationally. His own PNRs include not just every mailing address, e-mail, and phone number I've ever used; some of them also contain:
The IP address that I used to buy the ticket
His credit card number (in full)
The language he used
Notes on his phone calls to airlines, even for something as minor as a seat change
The breadth of long-term data retention illustrates yet another way that the federal government enforces its post-September 11 "collect it all" mentality."

The announcement was posted on the ICANN website earlier this evening and will probably be welcomed in many circles."

What happens when two multiverse theories collide?
We call Walter Bishop and he gives agent Olivia Dunum LSD and puts her in the total immersion tank again...
I invite you to consider what would happen if we make them legal. The government would tax them to an absurd level, a black market would still exist (look at tax-free cigarettes and their role in criminal revenue),
so like the untaxed cigarettes people would simply drive out to the nearest Indian reservation to buy a months supply?
The science is undebatable. Politicians and idiots are the only ones debating, but I guess that is redundant.
So falsifying data and results make the science undebatable? I don't recall the pulling numbers out of your ass step in the scientific method.
Seriously, try to imagine describing a lot of the things people do professionally now to someone 30 years ago.
Prostitution . . . the world's oldest profession will be around . . . well, as long as humans are still around.

The networks want to be paid every time a consumer watches a program, live, recorded, restreamed, or whatever. I am surprised that they do not insert a screen before every show reading something along the lines of 'I agree not to redirect the following content.' If the user does not agree with that, they are instructed to stop the program at that point.
Well if the show is being piped into my dvr and I only watch it latter then the eula would not apply as i "agreed" to it after I had recorded it.
Personally I wish its death would be fast and painful. that way i don't have to deal with it as long.
Apparently it isn't stuff that matters...
because unfortunately our dice overlords don't view slashdot itself as stuff that matters...
Well, that's the problem with Death Stars, they're not exactly the most "accurate" of instruments. If you want to nuke Washington, you have to wipe out the planet.
Hey, I don't say that it ain't worth it!
maybe he could just graze the surface of the planet firing tangentially to the earth?
Snowden has documents showing GCHQ was also behind those page widening posts in the early days of Slashdot as well as posting countless goatse and tubgirl links and other assorted crapflooding.
I would like to call you troll but unfortunately they were caught Man In The Middling slashdot.
Assuming we are talking about the same botnet, if i remember reading about it correctly it used a list of defualt passwords. If you are using a defualt password on any system you are going to get pwned hard.
