Please address people's concerns about the new web site look or put it off for a long time. I am trying to read very important stories on this web site and it's drowned in protesting (annoying but I understand why). So would the peeps running slashdot please ADRESS THE CONCERNS of people so we can have comments RELATED TO THE STORY. Thanks.
Funny how quick they replied to this study, feeling a bit nervous facebook?
And hear I always though it was savage beatings by police.
There's a difference between expressing what you want done with your "property" and demanding someone give you "property".
Good thing I'm not extremely stupid then.
Wasn't the whole point of this to encourage advertisers to not track and if they do you have a leg to stand on in a court because you specifically made it clear you did not want to be tracked?
Pretty sure they're just copying it not reinventing it.
Thank god it's gone I get SO SICK of people reinventing the wheel.
Department of Unnecessary Services, I think it sums them up quite well.
In rural Australia there is no NBN for you. Enjoy your congestion, I wouldn't be surprised if 50% of the exchanges in Australia have backhaul problems it's pretty appalling. NBN change it? I hope so but I am not exactly expecting a positive result.

Works like a charm, might need to make one for google+ soon. Of course slashdot is going to mash it into one big line > denotes a new line.
A lot of the people commenting here are not really getting the issue, as far as I can tell. The point of worry is control creep, much like the creep that is worried about when they start censoring the "bad things" off the Internet, I'd be all for it if it wasn't so easy to abuse. The problem is in fact, it is easy for the powers that be/status quo to abuse these systems and they have done so before. I've had laptops where I couldn't even switch the SATA mode, there's nothing to stop them making this into the worst possible situation for those who use OSes besides Windows.
