I found myself in a similar questionable situation once, and afraid.org helped me block/undo that subdomain when I explained my suspicion. They're responsive. Also, I dunno if it's default but you can be notified of each subdomain request and require explicit approval; that is how I learned of the questionable one in the first place.
Been using afraid.org for years after dyndns.org cancelled my account because I bitched at them about something stupid/selfish they did. Apparently stupid/selfish is par for the course with those people, so I'm glad I was an early emigre.
... to the task of trying to rescue or repopulate species right here on planet Earth, and then use that as the most objective argument ever for why they should never become "endangered" in the first place.
It's funny to me that you used the same map to support my argument that another guy last night had used to try to discredit it! My response is regrettably also similar: it's a map of PERCEIVED corruption, which does not always correlate with actual corruption.
And as you imply this is precisely why using an "educational" video that includes Apple product placement - however accidental - to instruct jurors in a legal case where Apple is a litigant is just WRONG.
No, I wasn't talking theory. I was talking about what actually happens and has happened. It's just a demonstrable as your "practice". And yes, I called you stupid because you were being stupid, and I explained why in a fashion that should be obvious to anyone with a passing grasp of history and human psychology. The fact that you refuse to be critical enough to recognize it reaffirms that you're being stupid. Stop it and perhaps you'll no longer be stupid.

My god, what a psychological retard you are.
Do you honestly believe that makes American sociopaths "more corrupt" than the sociopaths confined inside any other arbitrary national border? It's a matter of OPPORTUNITY, stupid, not a demonstration of a greater degree of corruption than anyone/anywhere else. Do you honestly believe that sociopaths in any other nation, given the same situational opportunity that American sociopaths enjoy now, would refrain from doing exactly what their American brothers are doing now?
The AC's comment was not so narrowly confined, was it? He took a specific narrow example of stupidity/greed/corruption and made a homeopathic attempt to generalize it.
If this video were the ONLY possible means of educating the jurors about the patent system, you might have a constructive point. It's nevertheless "leading" or whatever to portray any Apple product in a positive light with respect to patents, in the process of a trial having specifically to do with a patent dispute involving Apple products. Are you really this ignorant of how the (average) human mind actually works and processes stimuli, to think that such portrayal of any same-branded products could not possibly have an adverse effect on how people judge the matter at hand? Samsung's objection is very relevant. Another means to educate the jurors - one that does not include any references at all to either litigant's products - should be chosen.
I like the way you single out North Americans, as if they indeed are somehow more corrupt than Europeans or Africans or South Americans or Asians or Australians. Time for a reality check, dude.
The problem with your suggestion is that, like every other American, you have no fucking idea what true network neutrality looks like or how to implement it. What you would ask for, and if you got it what the rest of us would then have to endure, would NOT be network neutrality. One election cycle is all it would take to whisk away the facade and return us to business as usual.
Yes. If he steps outta line there, the parents in attendance will dismember and eat him alive. That's if the kids don't sic their robots on him first (pun intended).
John McAfee, is that you? I know you like to watch, so you have an open invitation to watch me fuck myself.
... with another 68-year-old guy I know who lives well-off in Palo Alto. Instead of indulging himself like this circus freak, he volunteers at children's FIRST robotics competitions and such. I don't know how he made his successful living before he retired; he could have been a drug lord for all I know, but if so he's certainly atoning for it now. This useless meat sack by comparison is still taking while giving nothing back.
