the gist of it:
Q: These guys were not trying not to offend, and that’s what an American media-conditioned mind cannot understand. The idea that yes, you offend those who abuse power.
A: [Laughs.] No, they can’t.
What's ironic for me is that the articles over the last couple of days have been a lot more interesting to me than in recent weeks, while I fully support the FUCK BETA protest, it's a real shame that we're missing out on some interesting discussion.
That's the price you have to pay for revolting against the overlords. I, for one, do not welcome our new beta.
As far as I know there was never a Austrian presence in either Rome or Greece. Well, okay, the Holy Roman Empire, but that was German right? Anyway, take a trip around Vienna and you will see wall to wall neo-classical architecture.
It's called culture. When people see something somewhere else that they like, they either steal it (if it isn't nailed down) or go home and copy it.
For about 400 years most of today's Austria was part of the Roman Empire. So it's the other way round. Noricum (a celtic kingdom - roughly Austria) was incorporated into the Roman Empire in 16 BC and supplied Roman Armies with weaponry (Noric Steel). Apart of that 'detail' I think your point stands.

Seriously, is SOCA known for taking down sites? On there website they have
Have you received correspondence purporting to be from SOCA and want to verify its authenticity?
It kinda sounds fishy to me.. Anyway now they're collecting tons of IP-addresses of Slashdotters who can't resist to click on links.
"One who believes as I do, that free intellect is the chief engine of human progress, cannot but be fundamentally opposed to Bolshevism as much as to the Church of Rome. The hopes which inspire communism are, in the main, as admirable as those instilled by the Sermon on the Mount, but they are held as fanatically and are as likely to do as much harm."
Bertrand Russel, The Practice and Theory of Bolshevism (1920)
"One strength of the communist system of the East is that it has some of the character of a religion and inspires the emotions of a religion. Unless the concept of peace based on law gathers behind it the force and zeal of a religion, it can hardly hope to succeed."
Albert Einstein, "Atomic War or Peace" part II (1947)
Wow, that's a compelling argument. I'd put it a step above "You are a doody head" and a step below "Nuh uh".
I suggest you go to Sweden and preach how you find homosexuality to be abhorrent and against "God's" will.
So here's your example about homosexuality and "God's" will. Those damn Britains are against free speech!
Or maybe go to Germany and say really love Hitler.
The German penal code (Strafgesetzbuch) establishes that someone is guilty of Volksverhetzung if the person
in a manner that is capable of disturbing the public peace
- incites hatred against segments of the population or calls for violent or arbitrary measures against them; or
- assaults the human dignity of others by insulting, maliciously maligning, or defaming segments of the population
So yes, if you are saying I love Hitler and let's kill some Arabs in Berlin, you are in conflict with the law, which - in liberal/western european democraties - tries to protect his citizens against organised attempts to commit mass murder.
What TFA describes as the reason for detention would be protected in the UK and Germany.
Do you see the difference in the reasoning in countries like UK or Germany compared to Saudi-Arabia? They are fundamentally opposed in terms where your freedom is limited. A concept of human rights and secular law on one side and a concept of religious law / God's law on the other.
The full-year data place Germany as the world's number two exporter behind China which posted exports worth a total €1.43 billion and a trade surplus of €117 billion in 2011.
Correlation does not show causation.
Having skimmed over the document, it tries to connect an assumption with linguistic terms and formulas in order prove this assumption. It's a work of one who excels at cocktail parties or executive meetings without real scientific value.
