Black people in the US can never transcend abuse, due to what Paul Mooney termed "the nigger wake up call," which is the observation that no matter what an African American achieves in America, they can still be treated "like a nigger," if the system wants to do so.

Martha Stewart was convicted of bullshit charges and Bernie Madoff only got busted because he ripped off people richer than him.

Ah, the "Well, you should have bought supported hardware" response. You can put that next to the "Well, why don't you code it yourself?" response in the library of catch-all catty answers to any criticism of OSS.

Sure, but your point here appears to boil down to, "Well, why doesn't CyanogenMod code it for me?" You know, if CM is so great and everything.

Kind of a "catty calling the cattle black" situation, if you ask me.

Bad design for all of your devices!

Slashdot is by far the most difficult website to read and comment on. Read a story you'd like to contribute your voice to? I hope you're logged in, because if you're logged out you may not be able to find the story again once you log in. Have typing skills? "Slow down, cowboy!"

Slashdot has the worst NIH syndrome when it comes to best practices, no wonder they wanted to be sold off. There is nothing here that isn't done better everywhere else, and even the community has suffered thereby. I only keep them in my RSS out of laziness.

Comment: Which Seven Congresspeople? (Score 1) 486

The proponents of this stupid petition are too cowardly to list their names anywhere (and none of the linked stories do either), while the petition itself is a lame, "click to support" type thing, where you can't even see what the petition says without "registering your support." Odious, undemocratic, and obviously a prong in the AIPAC/IDF "social media" campaigns going on now.

I'd be interested to know whether the seven Congresspeople are having the screws put to them in response to only narrowly being (re-) elected this past campaign cycle. Of course we don't know who they are, as above.
