I didn't. In addition, while being Russian myself, I do not see anything specifically Russian or American about the different ways of thinking exposed here. And yet what he says is valid. You should have a choice to say "it's my problem if my stuff is damaged or the driver disappears with it." And the danger of goods falling out etc., while real in some cases, is just an excuse for a government money grab here, because it's applied generally and does not exclude e.g. small items moved inside passenger cars. Taxes are also a different problem altogether.
Can't you have some sort of aliases in PS? A genuine question.
this case of a russian stabbing himself 7 times
Of course, purely by conincidence, this "self-stabbing" occured in the context of a potential conflict with people from a certain Southern region of Russia who are known not to be very peaceful-minded and especially love knives.

If you cannot successfully use some argument in a state court, it doesn't mean that the argument is invalid. If accepting some argument, however valid, can have disastrous consequences for the government, the latter just creates a framework where it can pretend that that argument is invalid.
(I'm not saying that there cannot be other, better arguments for income tax. It's just that the "social contract" is utter bullshit.)
Ex SSL engineers are making Linux only processing plugins.
I guess not anymore, if you mean LinuxDSP. Linux only didn't work out for them. But I got a nice Linux plugin bundle on sale from them for only $10.
Are you Russian? Asking because of that word you used.
At least the Troll, Redundant, and Offtopic ratings have nothing to do with whether your points are right or wrong per se. So your spam gets rightly downmodded for what it is. I guess it's indeed hard to stop within the existing rules when somebody has no life and devotes all his time to spamming the comments with the same shit in the same obnoxious manner. But, as I said, I don't even need that now - you can feel free to continue your heroic but pointless fight, and it won't inconvenience me as all I'll ever see will be a single line with a small grey-colored bit of your boring diatribe. Still a waste of a line, of course, but the world is not perfect. Which apparently you have trouble getting over.
Nobody actually needs to prove APK wrong. Spamming is wrong - that's a given and doesn't require any proof.
Where it comes to modding, I personally rarely do it if at all, because it's too much hassle. (Though one of the Troll, Redundant, and Offtopic ratings is always justified for APK, depending on the situation.) I can maybe report spam, because that's what APK's posts are. But now I don't need to do that, either, because... I have to thank APK for one thing: I've recently discovered the joy of reading at a higher compound threshold. This optimal mode allows me to skip his multi-line drivel easily and readily see if some low-scored post is potentially interesting for me.
So have a nice day!
Hehe, In APK's world, one can fail at something one didn't do.
I don't care whether APK is "right" about his hosts file thing, I just know for a fact that he's a flooder/spammer, and that's what's totally wrong about him. He just makes reading Slashdot at a low comment threshold much worse for people who aren't interested in his project or product. (And for those who are - I guess, one or two posts under an on-topic article is quite enough for them, too.)
OTOH, he seems to normally use subject line, so that's probably one way to spot and avoid his spam when reading at a higher threshold.
While you're at it, can you make a script to filter out hosts file spam? It makes reading at -1 more uncomfortable than it should be.
Better a more generic regexp-based one. But with an APK preset, that's for sure.
Communication skills are hardly offtopic when you want to convince somebody of something. Or at least to get them to read your message.
He has a problem with delivering his messageâ"if that's his actual goal, which I'm not sure about. The form in which he tries to do it puts off from reading whatever he has to say, even though he may be perfectly right (I don't really care about his favorite topic).
Wow, and they are also into fisting now. I hope it won't be mandatory.
