Comment Yes Possibly That (Score 0) 388

But whether or not Democracy falls is a small issue in comparison to the real worry, a potential future dystopia humanity faces as the machines rise and data compilation rise and a truely free press falls. Person's like Warrnen Buffet should be leaving their fortunes to the establishment of a global, non profit press outlet beholden to humanity, not governments and corporations. Voting machines? Hell we got bigger worries.

Obviously NOT because not even the poster RTFA - or at least did not comprehend what is says because the title of this post is 100% inaccurate. The court sided with the government, she will have to decrypt - the court refuses to hear any arguments until either a conviction or aquittal is made in the case.

Forget what I said. the f'ing /. site was f'ing up as usual and the link when I clicked it went to a completely different page which had nothing to do with the current link, it was about some woman, not a suspected child pornographer.

Comment A Groupon pitfall (Score 3, Interesting) 129

There's a local Indian eatery my wife and I enjoy from time to time. The service was always excellent until the time when our visit happened to coincide with a Groupon special. We walked in and noticed right away that the place as far busier than usual. Unfortunately that had a detrimental effect on the service, which stank and we were pissed off once we learned it was a Groupon night, as we paid full price for crap service and we are regulars.

Too bad for the restaurants in large cities which get sucked into trying Groupon. You place gets filled for one night with cheapskates, who then move on to the next Groupon deal restaurant the following night, and so on... You f'd over regular customers for a bunch of 20-somthing cheapskates - we have not returned and may not.

The whole point of coupons and specials is to get people to try your restaurant and then come back if the person likes it. However with Groupon I doubt very much this works as the only people using Groupon are the types that are eating at the next local Groupon special as all they care about is the deal.

Comment Let's not forget Celebrity (Score 1) 547

Jenny McCarthy. Need I say more? Even Randi has taken issue with her espousing her uneducated opinion about child vaccinations in a huge public forum because of her celebrity. It may not yet be an epidemic, but the resurgence of whooping cough in the United States is in part due to her and her bubble-headed bleach-blond talking head. She has done a real disservice to mankind and has done nothing to try and reach those influenced by her words now that science has unequivocally refuted her witch doctor claims.

Sorry but in the modern world Celebrity trumps everything, even religion. That is part of the problem.

Comment 100% FUD (Score 1) 244

Those that benefit from suckling at the tits of the bloated pig called the military industrial complex have now found a new and fatter pig from which to suckle. Cyber War is a bunch of BS propaganda to feed to the mindless politicians who only care about lining their pockets with greenbacks. Another way to waste American taxpayer money and prevent it from being used for something that would actually help society, such as Universal Health Care.
