It was never signed into law as it never made it out of committee. That link you so nicely offer up also offres this:

How about this one. Its currently alive. S. 2588: Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act of 2014

To be clear this means president Bush never signed it into law. It also means, that as it isn't a law the other person is right unless you can find one that was. As for SonyOnline.net the best thing would be a redirect to Piratebay.se
Wrong. The issue is that publishing is considered sufficient.
It should be publish or die. How do you know they're doing anything if they don't publish? they could be watching tv all day for all you know otherwise.
But as is made clear here, simply publishing and getting it through peer review is clearly not good enough. We need to increase what they have to do to avoid this situation.
For example... maybe one scientist pays another scientist to reproduce his work.
Maybe you have big collections of graduate students that as part of their process of getting a degree get assigned some random papers submitted by scientists in their field and they have to reproduce the work.
Obviously this isn't always possible... but whenever it isn't possible that needs to be put as a giant red asterisk on the paper saying "this work has not been reproduced"...
Do that and you're not going to get as much fraud or laziness.
I agree with this for one reason. It would finally dispense with the climate change insanity. Since its actually near impossible to get data that is verifiable about climate older than 50yrs that isn't tainted or limited and subject to interpretation(like core samples or tree rings), we could finally put al gore were he belongs. Out of sight and mind. Each day passing I am more thankful that the supreme court gave the victory to Bush. I only wish it could have happened in 2012 for Romney.
Peter holds a very high standard for himself, I'm sure.
The standard practice is to form a unspoken agreement between several reviewers that they will all favorably review each others papers.
Peter couldn't find his circle and created a self-circle.
Otherwise known as a circle jerk.
No, you fucking moron.
Corporations are "persons" not "people" and moreover, only "Citizens" can vote. Corporations are not now, have never been and shall never be "citizens".
Yet. Give it time and they will be.
