The guys who were just messing around with stuff like "Can't wait to date her!" he responded in kind, and the people who were total shits he took the gloves off with.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
Snowden is guilty of turning over a detailed review of our internal security apparatus to our national enemies
I'm not a great fan of the Guardian either, but "national enemies" is going too far.
Denial of certiorari sets no precedent. They could have rejected this case for any number of reasons, from a full calendar to the suit involving side issues which would make any ruling muddy to not liking the name of the defendant. They denied without comment.
It is when the harassment campaign organizes blacklists, doxxes you, and spreads lies to try and get you fired.
But enough about Randi Harper.
"Cult"? You sound like the CEO of Nestle when he talks about people who don't want water delivery infrastructure privatised as "extremists".
And I'm just sitting here, drinking water delivered via privatized infrastructure.
Many of them don't even understand how computers actually work.
Given that understanding how (modern) computers actually work requires a working knowledge of quantum mechanics (not in any CS curriculum I've ever seen), not surprising.
They get hot from being above an oven.
Patents must be specific enough to describe a particular set of implementations of an idea, rather than just the general idea itself. Despite Slashdot's love of the phrase, "on a computer" does not a patent make.
Not only does "on a computer" make a patent, "on a machine readable medium" (Beauregard claim) is quite sufficient.
On the other hand, that specificity can be problematic when it comes time to actually use the exclusivity a patent provides.
Doctrine of equivalents.
Stop apologizing for the patent system; it's broken.
There's NOTHING I hate worse than a noisy oven.
The Frigidaire slide-in oven has a fan to cool the controls; it's noisy. The Kitchen Aid (as of a couple of years ago) has no such fan. It's quiet. Unfortunately the controls tend to overheat and fail. Also the door glass explodes spontaneously. Still want the quiet one?
The guy running the roofing business, though? He'll have to wait a couple of years or become a pilot and an expert on navigating section 333's paperwork mill
Or he'll just do it. The FAA doesn't have the manpower to catch him... and even if they do catch him once, the fine is $10,000 and thus lots cheaper than doing it legally.
It turns out "Jo Seong-jin" rhymes with "Tonya Harding".
and now trying to make it up on volume? I'll pass on that business plan.
Personally I think the solution is to speak up even when you don't care that much. You can't convince the fringe players that they're wrong, but you can demonstrate to them (and others) that the fringe viewpoint is a minority one.
Well, we know one thing that DOESN'T work -- censoring the "fringe" players, and make agreements with all the other forums you can find to also censor them. All that does is convince them that there's a conspiracy to silence them. (why this should convince them so is left as an exercise)
Probably living in a forest, breathing fresh air, eating natural food and drinking source water is less carcinogenic?
Trees pump out all sorts of carcinogenic crap. The Great Smokey Mountains aren't smokey from man-made pollution or fire, after all. If the canopy isn't too heavy, living outdoors means susceptibility to skin cancer. Natural food, especially plants also contains all sorts of toxins. And water in nature can contain lead and arsenic and kill you too. But if you live like that, your chance of cancer might be cut down by getting bitten by a snake or attacked by a wolf or a bear or something, or just hypothermia.
Everyone over the age of 5 knows a Public Service Announcement is propaganda. Of course the comments were more influential; they didn't have to clear a high bar. Give it a few years and everyone will know the comments are mostly from shills, trolls, and know-nothings, and we'll be back to the healthy status quo of no one with any sense believing anything they read without triple-checking it.
