Check out GeoCities on Tumblr. They post a screen shot of a GeoCities home page every 10 minutes or so.
Yes, that may be, but when was the last time he worked there? Old man.
Even Google admits that they are probably in monopoly territory. Monopolies are not illegal though. Abusing your monopoly position to inhibit competition is illegal.
If you don't want to get down-modded perhaps you should point out areas where you think they have abused their monopoly position rather than just say "see, Google is a monopoly!"
Microsoft are convicted monopolists and there are numerous examples of the anti-competitive behavior. Point to Google's ant-competitive behaviors then perhaps there can be a discussion.
So let's get into this. The point you are trying to make is that we either agree with your assessment of the Manning incident or we are teenaged idiots?
We only get those two choices? No adolescent fool, or middle aged buffoon, just teenaged idiots?
I'll just leave this here for you.
People are obviously much more tolerant of human error than machine error. Machines in life safety areas are expected to be perfect.
Also who is liable in a fatal accident caused by a machine? People want a human scapegoat.
That is the problem when you are working in a gatekeeper position or have deal with people in that role.
No one notices the gatekeeper until they screw up. The default answer to any request must be no, because if they say yes and something bad happens it is their fault. No one remembers that they have been keeping the bad stuff out up until this point. Only that they let this one bad thing through so they must be bad at their job and should be replaced.
Here you go. Bible Fight!
You forgot to tell us to get off your lawn.
I suspect that the people who are bragging that they'd shoot someone over trespassing are teenage armchair internet warriors trying to convince themselves that they are tough.
You have obviously never been to Texas.
I'll give you another link to a local paper's editorial decrying the action the man in the earlier link I posted took. Take some time to read through the comments attached to it. You will find that the majority of the comments not only support the man's actions but laud him as a hero and upstanding citizen.
Now don't take my posts as an argument that it is proper to shoot someone just for trespassing or even burglarizing your neighbors property. I personally would never kill someone over anything as trivial as property. I was merely pointing out that you may be a little naive about many peoples' attitudes as to when deadly force is acceptable.
While this may only apply to Texas, It appears that some juries are in fact buying.
As to the point about calling your bluff when you brandish your firearm, I think you could make an argument that they were assaulting you if they tried to make a grab for your weapon. Plus if you didn't really want to shoot them guns are quite effective as a bludgeoning device. Mmmmmm Pistol Whip.
I disagree, there was a time during Bush's presidency where to criticize or question Bush's policy was equated to being an unpatriotic traitor. I'm pretty sure the Dixie Chicks experienced a lot of the vitriol, public shunning and public crucifixion you don't seem to remember anymore.
Hit Obama and the Democrats where they will feel it the most, the pocketbook. The dems and Obama benefited hugely from their grass roots campaign to get donations in. Their is another election in less than two years that they are going to need our money for again. Don't give it to them and encourage other people to with hold as well. Just make it clear why you aren't helping. When they put out the call for volunteers show up and discourage people from helping by pointing out the fact that they aren't delivering on their end of the bargain.
We need to stand together and send the dems a message that if they won't deliver on their promises, we won't help them anymore. They are answerable to all of us who worked to put them in office, it's our job to make sure they never forget that.
They are trying to make an example of this company, IMHO. Pure speculation on my part but the overboard manner in which this was executed makes me think they wanted to send a message to this company and other data center operators. I'm guessing that perhaps Core IP may not have been as cooperative as the FBI would have liked them to be in past inquiries. So they used whatever excuse they have currently to get an over broad warrant and shut the whole operation down. That's just my straight out of my ass feeling though.
I hope this backfires horribly on the FBI. I hope that the affected completely innocent companies get some lawyers and go to town on the FBI for this.
