Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
Also post the list in comment sections for theguardian.com and the BBC (if they have an area for comments). Make sure the ISP's know they'd better block those sites.
And don't forget facebook and twitter.
Hey, some of us may be using a Kaypro II.

The veto is to allow the people who are owed the money to keep the sale price reasonable, not to guarantee that they themselves can buy it for $1.

There was a time when the NRA was willing to compromise and accepted some restrictions.
The problem was, around the mid-to-late 1980's, they found that they would accept a compromise, and then find themselves back a the table six months later with a new "compromise" being proposed. Groups like HCI just kept moving the goalposts, and then publicly accused the NRA of refusing to accept "reasonable legislation" when the NRA balked.
The NRA finally just decided they were going to start refusing offers to compromise as a policy.
