Funny. Slashdot now follows the lead of Private Eye as well...
That simply isn't true. Racists do not have to promote their own race above all others. Racism is the unfair treatment of people by race, essentially. You can wiggle about on that definition but it is close enough.
You have, somewhat amusingly, made my point for me. Congratulations.
Yeah, I've read it. It's a pile of racist crap. Trolls love it because it gives them a nice little platform to be provocative.
How on Earth did you manage to come to the conclusion that Englebart's 1968 demo was somehow related to the Internet? The Internet has a number of key players to thank for its development, both technical and legislative, but Doug Englebart is not one of them. His influence was elsewhere.
You are right, but the comment you are replying to was not talking about Chrome or web standards.
Nice idea. However I am working with code that can't escape the office network. And anyway we also have Crucible if we want to do proper code review.
Yes, but vanity seems to overcome this. The whole simplistic notion of a single score to describe a mental ability that is as broad as "intelligence" is lacking in scientific rigour. But apparently clever people are too clever to need rigour.
Emailing python is unusual. I tend to er, commit to Git and let people pull my changes.
Emailing Perl can be hard too because so few people know how to write decent Perl that you end up reading rubbish.
You fed the troll. Whoops.
Obviously he wouldn't enjoy it so he doesn't do it. The reason the strip was great was because the quality threshold was so high. Reading through the books gives constant laughs. If it carried on without much love then it would be a very differeny matter.
I am glad he stopped.
Wow, I never knew there was an anti-Calvin and Hobbes troll possible but you have found it!
Genuinely, I am impressed. You should use this one in other places.
Ah yes. I forgot how easy it was to sneak a laptop and a VR headset onto a rollercoaster. This is almost certainly planned by a PR agency. It probably happened but quite deliberately to get us to pay attention to their VR tech.
They are not in a perpetual state of religious fervour though. So there must be some element of conscious decision involved.
Sorry, you have drastically over-simplified this, and you're wrong. There is still choice.
It is much more helpful for you to say that they have made a decision to choose this religion and not to go looking for others. Of course you can also point out that some people feel coerced into it, but I wasn't referring to people for whom that was the case. I was only referring to people I know who I am pretty damn certain can go exploring whatever religions they feel like.
It's a different discussion to talk about the general choices of religion throughout the world.
