I wish people understood how cheaply Valve is doing all this. They are building a gravity well, a potential, not a single machine. Sony and MS spent orders of magnitude more money to get where Valve is in the console process. WE are seeing a console built from the ground up, using what we have lying around. MS spent more money on their controller than Valve has spent on the entire SteamOS project.

The problem with this argument is the law didnt stand still since its inception. It has been amended and ruled on to handle modern issues. your argument is not honest. Point out SPECIFIC archaic rules that you object to. Last i checked POTS works damn well and has for a century so you are going to need compelling evidence.

WE DONT trust them, thats why we didnt push hard for regulation in the 90s. The latest FCC actions were DECADES in the making. SO to the uninformed like you it might seem like we are championing the FCC, when in reality we are fucking giddy to see our enemy take such a hard strike against them. No informed person thinks this was the best choice, it was the only choice the ISPs left us with.

You are interpreting wrong. 'However' is not necessarily a limiter you think it is. "United States money as identified above are a valid and legal offer of payment for debts when tendered to a creditor. "

stands alone.

"There is, however," is unrelated to the part about debt. Since neither of us are lawyers lets agree its ambiguous at best, instead of claiming early victory.

Lets look at the terms.

Legal tender: when i began my search, i typed in legal tender and the first result was this

"legal tender
noun
coins or banknotes that must be accepted if offered in payment of a debt."

The root meaning of the words themselves are Lawful OFFER. It seems to me that its not just my opinion? Care to counter?

Build a system that even a fool can use and only a fool will want to use it.
