For a few months I am consulting in San Jose and driving from Berkeley. I can't wait for all of those folks to move to the cities and get off the roads! Typical commute is 1.5 hours to drive no more than 49 miles. Even getting on the road at 6 AM doesn't beat the traffic.
I am no authority on homosexuality. All I really know is that I meet a lot of gay folks here in Berkeley, and they are every bit as nice as anyone else.
Nor am I a genetics expert. But I know enough to hold a discussion.
You are right that there may be no genetic connection with homosexuality, because it doesn't seem to be inherited in general. But there are intriguing differences such as digit ratio, and we know that many developmental differences can have a genetic factor. Who knows what we will find?
I think the flaw with your argument is that you are assuming that homosexuals don't breed. Not true, and there may also be factors increasing the success of their offspring such as small, educated and relatively affluent families.
Next, do not assume that direct reproductive success is the only possible pro-survival factor. The contribution of homosexuals to the reproductive success of their close genetic relatives or even their community may be a pro-survival factor for genes like their own.
There are others whose opinions are far more principal to that question than yours.
Those who ignore history are bound to make really big fools of themselves on Slashdot.
Go away, troll.
Evi has been my closest contact at CU over the years. She was always a good friend and administered the scholarship I set up there. I am very sad but hoping to hear good news from my NZ friends. Evi was a very important person when it comes to Unix and Internet routing.

that's all business name one that doesn't depend on some 3rd party.
"Do you see where I am coming from here...?"
That you are obtuse?
Since google is aware it can't be perfect, and has a history of adjusting filters to try and narrow it in, i'm not worried about it.
Clearly you lack the ability to think about things and prefer to jump to meaningless hyperbole and non relevant examples.
It's sad really.
One involves sex, one involves killing people. yeah, I can see how you would mix that up.
I wasn't saying that all of the Red Hat Enterprise Linux users would install it immediately in their mission critical systems on Wall Street, either.
But we can give you a significant number of users of a real kernel for your experiment.
The OS is mostly replaced about every 5-10 years.
That's why we have Linux. You can get a real OS implementation in users hands immediately. You only need these poor half measures for the Microsoft version.
IT's not racist by any reasonable stretch of the imagination. Stop forcing things to fit into you narrow, preconceived, notions.
Speak for yourself.
