Comment if adds stop being silly, AdBlocking will go away (Score 1) 351

This might be true for some, but it's not for me.

I will keep my adblockers for as long as I can, why shouldn't I. I do not care for your profits. If your site dies because you have no ad revenue, I'm sorry but then you've had the wrong business model all along, and somebody else will take your place.

There's a fundamental difference...

ISIS wants to spread the videos to show how badass they are, and to plant fear into people. We shouldn't distribute it, because then we are doing what they want. You can easily report on this without spreading the actual footage.

A rogue cop killing an innocent wants to hide his crime, and should be exposed. This can also be easily reported on without showing footage, but the footage painfully shows how much the cops don't give a fuck about anybody's life.

So the first should never be shown, the second should be available. But really, it's not mandatory to show any death videos... Especially in this age of social media, I'm casually browsing facebook at work, and suddenly I see dead people coming by.... That isn't helping anybody...

Comment This is not trolling at all (Score 1) 728

death threats and false claims of prostitution is not what I call trolling... this is just criminal behavior.

trolling is harmless, like saying you like apple in a windows post.
saying you will rape OP's mom and kill his dad because he posts about windows, is not trolling.
