+ - Netflix Stealthy Reduces Service, Keeps Prices the Same

Submitted by Nom du Keyboard
Nom du Keyboard (633989) writes "After seeing a drop in my DVD service from Netflix I got a customer service representative tonight to confirm that Netflix has ceased processing DVD returns on Saturdays nationwide. And that they did this without either notifying their customers, nor reducing prices to compensate for the reduced service. Given that the DVD selection still far outstrips their streaming selection, this may be news to others like myself who don't find streaming an adequate replacement for plastic discs. My experience up until recently, unlike Netflix's promise of a 1-3 day turnaround at their end which gives them lots of wiggle room to degrade service even further, had been of mailing in a DVD on day one, having them receive it and mail out my next selection on day two, and receiving it on day three. Now with them only working 5 days and many US Post Office holidays, they're still getting the same money for significantly less. Is Netflix still the good guy here?"

but no your iPhone is not running a packet sniffer

Not even if you're using a Remote Virtual Interface? If that can only be used by plugging the device into a Mac and running rvictl on the Mac, that's one thing, but if you can also get it to act as a remote pcap daemon over the network, as he claims, that's a different matter.

God forbid somebody who happens to work for or be a Congressperson spread disinfomation by alphabetizing categories...

So, judging by the reaction to the article (the whole thread from this submission),

No, not the whole thread. See below.

each and every single employee of Russian state media responds directly to Putin (even those who, say, use their wifi networks),

In the posting to which you responded, I said "just as somebody working at or for the VGTRK isn't necessarily acting on behalf of the Russian government.", which says that employees of Russian state media are not necessarily acting on behalf of the Russian government". The person who made the edit in question might well have been acting on his or her own; I'm not going to assume that they were acting part of an officially-organized propaganda campaign, or even a propaganda campaign at all, any more than I'm going to assume, at this point, that the Russians had anything to do with the decision to shoot down the plane.

but some edit directly from a political/administrative institution only "alphabetizes categories".

In the posting to which you responded, I said that one particular edit, namely the one referred to here was only "alphabetizing categories", and that one other edit, namely the one referred to here, merely added a serial comma.

If your goal was to demonstrate that people from IP addresses assigned to the US congress edit Wikipedia pages, those edits might be relevant; if your goal was to show edits, from IP addresses assigned to the US congress, that show a pro-US bias, those edits are completely irrelevant - this one might be more relevant.

...or adding serial commas!

You might want to limit yourself to examples where somebody's changing the tone of an article to favor (or mock) some particular view, like the rest of the links.

And, of course, a particular Congressperson or staffer for that Congressperson isn't necessarily acting on behalf of the US Government, just as somebody working at or for the VGTRK isn't necessarily acting on behalf of the Russian government. (Perhaps it'd be more likely in the latter case, but if it were somebody posting from the Duma in that case, or somebody from the Voice of America in the former case, it'd be a closer match.)

Ad hominem synecdoche; fun to say but not very convincing.

We current are using 2/3 of the capacity for air groups on the super carriers so that argument is less convincing. You still need the support ships period.

Dash speed is bullshit, out running a torpedo may be possible but only if it was fired a the stern and the carrier group had totally failed in its job. Find an example of when they have used it ever and I will mea culpa.

With 10 super carriers and 3.5 average currently operational with a 10 year refueling time you are not the least bit convincing. Even if the carrier were 1/2 the cost you could have 7 concurrently operational or even 2 carriers per current group.

You give no data and no examples so I just don't believe you.
