Catholicism believes that the Bible, which they themselves compiled from misc. manuscripts, is second in importance to Catholic tradition itself. The Bible wasn't worded only one way, either; we don't have access to the original manuscripts and we can only rely on translations, and sometimes translations of translations. Whether or not something like this would be morally appropriate would be the decision of those who know the religion inside and out, specifically the Pope and Bishops.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
Ever since the dawn of time, every time there's an article on GNOME here, it's nothing but immature remarks about how absolutely terrible it is left and right. It should be pretty dang obvious by now that some people don't like GNOME. So just live with it! You don't have to spread doom and gloom wherever you do! If you don't like something, just don't use it and leave the comments section for actual constructive discussion! I've seen a few good comments here and there about the actual details of things, legitimate concerns, and rather respectable opinions on either side, but if all you're saying is "I'm leaving GNOME" or "I hate GNOME, XFCE/KDE/some old archaic window manager that nobody ever uses anymore/etc. is so much better", then please, for the love of all that is good, don't even bother saying it. Please try to say something more than an annoying rant. I know that slashdot is infamous for its annoying commenters and hateful mentality towards pretty much everything, but you don't have to uphold that!
What did he do there?
If this is ever stopped, then the article title for it should be... CETA Sings The Blues
Banned Bibles? What in the world? No, you could read them and study them. Heck, the first book ever printed on a printing press was the Vulgate. They had that rule to protect the few Bibles they could make. Do you know how incredibly expensive a Bible was before the printing press? If I had a Bible, I'd chain one down, too! It's like locking your house or keeping you car in a garage.
Star-star-me? Asterisk-asterisk-me? Just "me"?
From the sounds of it, that should work with any other custom style sheets thing, like Stylish, right? That actually sounds rather helpful from an accessibility standpoint (if a little bit annoying to set up). Still, it shouldn't be hard to make good-looking links on a webpage.
Nearly every project I've seen gives you a copy of said product for pledging a certain amount. Also, have you heard of the term "investing" before?
Don't forget Counter Strike: Global Offensive and DOTA 2!
Not just that. Many people don't know that you can get easily infected by a rogue advertisement even being displayed. That alone keeps me using Adblock, even if all of the other factors people name didn't exist.

LOL The reality is he wants to use the internet to normalize DRM one small step at a time. Everyone has seen diablo 3's success and the are CHOMPING AT THE BIT to do the same to every other game. See through the PR matrix.
If you can get modded up to +5 insightful for this comment then I greatly fear for the sake of Slashdot. It's full of idiots now. I'm going to get modded down for saying this, but I really don't care. If this kind of response is really the kind of discussion that Slashdot is supporting now, then goodbye. I really don't care what happens to you all now. This site is a lost cause.
He isn't saying that they're shoehorning multiplayer into every game. He's saying that every game should include an online component of some sort, as he says right here. They're not saying that games should all have multiplayer involved. They're saying that they should involve the internet in some way. There is nothing wrong with this. For example, take optional high score challenges in Mirror's Edge. The Sim City example, where online is required, is a bad example because that's just one game and the game was designed to be multiplayer-centric from the start. There are many, many single player games, like Mass Effect, that don't require the multiplayer or online functionality whatsoever. This is just FUD. EA isn't the best company around, sure, but including online features in single player games is definitely possible and it can't always be a bad thing depending on how it's implemented.
This isn't a discussion about GNOME 3, though. This is about a completely optional distribution for people who already like GNOME 3. That is what the article is about and I just wished people talked about that instead of the exact same rants we get all the time.
You don't seem to see that this a completely optional distribution for people who already like GNOME 3. In no way is it being shoved down your throat.
