I buy plenty of stuff from eBay and haven't had very many problems though I agree, buyer beware. The place ain't like it used to be.
there is literally no way they can arrest the 50 people in a circle for possession
I'd suggest taking a long hard look at how the federal conspiracy laws are written and utilized in this country. There are many many people rotting away in prisons across the US for doing a lot less association with "criminal activity" than what you've suggested here. Sucks but it's true.
A quick look at their source suggests that they are using something called BLOX CMS, and their nameservers are run by TownNews, which is apparently the company behind BLOX.
BLOX is advertised as "Cloud-based" with "No hardware or software to install & maintain".
This all suggests that they actually cannot make such a change, by virtue of using an SaaS solution they have no control over.
No transit pays for itself. Not highways, not airlines, not buses, not rail.
Corporate Welfare may be a real thing but I don't think it's quite as extensive and generous as you appear to believe. Buses and rail services may well attract a subsidy but I don't know of many subsidised airlines.* These companies exist to make money.
How do they not 'pay for [themselves]' if they're turning a profit?
* I may simply be ill-informed of course.

Haha. You sound like a teenage girl defending her boyfriend. Did you do the little finger snap thing as you wrote that? I'm sorry. I just had to laugh. Rock on.
So this is what passes for "insightful" on Slashdot these days? Some AC's weak sophistic rant wrapped around his choice of desktop OS? Wow. Thanks, Dice.
You know, the more I read discussion of the changes to the first three movies, the more I'm glad I just watched them at the time and left it at that.
Did someone say the forbidden word three times ?
Oh? I must have missed that memo. What is it, something like "fuckwit, fuckwit, fuckwit"?
P.S.=> I am going to annihilate you publicly for those you reprehensible piece of fucking lying malicious libelous trolling trash... apk
Bwhahahahahaha! Oh, you *go* girl, you *troll* that bad, bad man!
There's nothing more pitifully amusing than watching APK hollering away at everyone and everything with his panties up in a big old bunch.
You've almost become an institution, Slashdot's "Donald Duck" if you like - a highly-strung, pompous twit who explodes into tantrums of quacking and squawking at the slightest hint of provocation.
Keep up that stalking of yours, it's sure to keep winning you hearts and minds!
Don't know why - but I really like that combination.
I've gotten off my schedule of reading Starship Troopers and TMiaHM every year - but I did just reread The Moon is a Harsh Mistress last week-end. My wife was in Ukraine and I was kind of bored but not motivated enough to do something that took effort.
I've outgrown RAH's politics but I still love the story.
I'm totally in on google - drank the kool-aid and all that. We use their products at my work a ton so I've always got chrome open on my desktop, laptop and phone.
