Since many of the users of Slashdot are not native users of English language. Maybe there should be additional functionality enabling all grammar and punctuation Nazis to vent steam.
They could point out in a separate manner the errors in one's post. Those comments would be only visible to the original poster and other people who have enabled feature "show grammar nazis". So that specific individual would be given the opportunity to have his errors shown without disrupting the thread with 'off topic' remarks. I would appreciate such feature as I am not a native speaker, and I've learned English mostly by... ummm... It's hard to describe but an analogy came to me, like the 13th Viking (played by Banderas) in the movie.
Anyways I for one would welcome our^H^H^H such comments especially the more constructive ones like: "Listen chap you gotta work on your past perfect reported speech inter punctuation".
Nokia is probably focusing right now on the Linux implementation because they want to use it in Linux.
So you know, implementations doesn't just happen by them selves, they need man-hours. So Man-Up and give it to them. But don't whine.
I am from a country which in it's relative short history of 20 years or so had about oh shit and some political parties manned by mostly the same people who switch parties when their colleagues fell from public grace. No party has ever secured reelection, and really no one was feeling accountable.
That I think shows in our example at least that there are no added benefits for having more parties. And for 'outsiders' like yours favourite Ron Paul, yeah we had that too, and they formed their own parties and guess what, they were not elected.
Non mainstream ideas not backed by MSM don't have a fscking chance of election.
My short life has thought me that in civilized world there are no room for revolution only evolution. So if ya want to see real change, go for mainstream, and push it in the direction you want it to be.
It's like Richard Dawkins books and lectures, I have yet to see religious person converted to atheism by it. But it's a seed with a label on it which only us can read, label states: you have rights, express them, water the seed and don't be shy and spread it.
It really is just genetically engineered meme, designed to combat older vicious complex emergent meme.
World is a bell curve, get used to it. Only top is visible, but sides can influence also, but it's a really really small influence and it's never instantaneous.
Another thing to remember I think is that there are no fucking recipes for fucking success.
Uh where was I... so many thoughts, sorry, I had to vent them. Anyway, many thinkers here on
I see history repeat it self as it happened with Digg, the only difference - Digg started from level which slashdot is currently at.
I think it might be a good time for me too look for new web 2.0 news source which has for instance some kind of IQ level discrimination. Or drop this unproductive habit of mine whatsoever.
PS I hardly ever LoL'ed at any +5 Funny post here.
PS/2 I really just don't get the culture of lol, a fucking smirk is not laughing out loud goddammit.
A man has died, and you fucking joke about it because he had a friend named Robert E Lee. Well if it wasn't for your stupid American movies I wouldn't even have any idea who Lee was.
