So, let's look at this another way out.

By making this statement, the German government is informing the population of people they are legally/politically responsible for, the German people.

So, the German government can release themselves of any responsibility for what happens to you or your information if you're a German using Windows 8.

Does the headline read, "German government bans Windows 8 in Germany"? No.

So, this is similar to the President of the American Psychiatric Association stating to the press that the field of Psychiatry has no idea how psych meds work or what they really "do", that it's all theoretical. Though he stated this in context of an academic rebuttle on a loosely related subject, it was still a statement. And didn't the rate of class action lawsuits against the drug companies over the side effects of psych meds decline to the point where it's been awhile but new drugs are still coming out all the time? Or are we to believe the art was also, coincidentally, perfected at around the same time?

Now the German government is released from responsibility of what happens to you or your computer while you're using Windows 8.

But wait, there's more!

Not only could you no longer hold the German government responsible for protecting you while you use Windows 8 as a German citizen ... *gasp*!

You can't hold the German government responsible for what the German government does to or with your computer as a citizen of *any* country while you're using Windows 8, especially not if you dare to contact a server or client located somewhere in Germany!

Depending on who you ask, you seem to have a different "answer" to your question.

Damn if it wasn't several days ago I'd say mod parent up.

The whole part about publicly/semi-publicly (might as well be the same thing in many situations, and oh look there was Krebs himself sitting in the balcony) soliciting blackmail funds really is stupid when you put it plainly.

I was more floored by the fact that Krebs was allowed to tamper with the heroin that was delivered and take those pictures. I can't imagine a single sheriff's department anywhere in America that would find that Kosher. Funny, Krebs' article didn't mention charges of Tampering with evidence. Or, if real drugs were spilled by Krebs while waiting for the Sheriff to arrive, funny no mention of reprimands for Pollution.

If the heroin wasn't even real, Krebs wouldn't have any reason to include that detail in his story. Which, also coincidentally, is tidied up by the Sheriff's missing Herion Durg Testre Kit.

"Hi I'm the Sheriff. What's that? Got Heroin? Hold on! I'll zoom right on out there and NOT BRING MY HERION DURG TESTRE KIT."

"Oh LET ME CHECK MY COLLECTION OF DRUG TESTING KITS. ... HMMMMM ... I DID NOT BRING HERION TEST. Hmm.. what did I come out here for, again? Oh, yeah. THE HEROIN YOU WARNED US MIGHT BE COMING LIKE TWO WEEKS AGO. THAT'S COOL I'LL JUST TAKE THIS WHITE POWDER BACK WITH ME. BYE BYE!"

Lolz. I wonder how much of the entire story is true, at this point...

And I have to wonder who decides these things.

If you're looking for "processor", Google decides you are also explicitly searching for "motherboard". If you're looking for "broken" Google also explicitly searches for "repair".

Then there's Google explicitly adding in search terms with an assumption might have mis-spelled something. I dunno when they started that but it annoyed the hell out of me on my cell phone the other day. Instead of the usual "did you mean this? I'm searching for this. Click here to search for what you actually asked me to," what it did was search for what I asked and *also* for what it thought I meant, both terms, explicitly.
