Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
I would simply argue that it would hurt the show. Male fictional characters should stay male. If you want a show about a strong female- start a NEW show about a strong female character. I don't want the show addressing:
-The whole idea of a man trapped inside a woman's body.
-Is the new doctor attracted to men or women?
Please let the show just be cheap sci-fi and not about social re-engineering.
If you're abandoning a distro because you don't know how to change the default GUI, you probably shouldn't be looking at Linux in the first place.
With that logic, one could argue why have a distribution? Around 2003 I built my own Frankenstien distribution because I wanted to keep certain things the way I wanted them and each distribution just didn't cut it for me. The system worked great but I hated all the work involved to change anything. I then got too busy to care and went over to a distribution. If Linux is for only the hardcore, then it is a poor excuse for a computer system. The goal of any computer system SHOULD be to get things done (whether that is running a business or writing emails to friends and playing games) and NOT for working on the system itself. If a person is spending a lot of time learning how the system works to get what they want, then the system has failed that person.
It didn't say "this is perjury" it gave an analogy of how serious some contexts consider lie of omission (specifically the context of a court of law). The original post was saying the act wasn't the same as lying and the response simply pointed out that in some contexts it is considered equivalent to a lie.
But it is false. Lie by ommision is definately NOT perjury. Perjury is out and out lying. However if anyone ommits to say something in court... well that is built into the court proceedings with map hearings (what district atourney's are and are not allowed to bring up.).
