Only after the women became aware of each other's relationships with Mr. Assange did they make their allegations against him.
Isn't that the classic feminist definition of rape? It doesn't matter when it became unwanted contact only that it is unwanted.
How do you know they are not there to do bodily harm? Most non-violent criminals won't bother entering an occupied home so you should assume that someone breaking in to an occupied home will do harm to the inhabitants.
Of course, we can always just wait for the police to "protect and serve" us.
So, is this a good development or a bad development? If the finding better ways to identify people leads to better ways to remove that information then it is better?
Or is it better because it will help us not remain anonymous when we donate to our favorite cause and that organization is in some way involved in US politics?
not really as bad
usually means that it sometimes is that bad. Articles from various sources, US and UK. Also from some US citizens living in the UK. Like signs discouraging people from entering certain corridors in hospitals saying stuff like "High crime area - enter at own risk.
We have areas like that in the US (usually whole sections of cities) but we tend not to advertise the fact that we have just given up. Everybody just assumes we have but we don't advertise it that openly.
This story, Germany-To-Grant-Privacy-At-the-Workplace [slashdot.org] was about how great it was that Germany is making great strides towards banning a private business from monitoring the activities of its employees. Now, that same government seems to think that no amount of monitoring those same people is too much, as long as the benevolent government does the monitoring instead of the evil corporation.

Why? You planning to become a terrorist?
Sorry, I couldn't resist.
So, *nix users generally only get their apps from an app-store except we say that we are getting executables from a repository. Who acts as the gatekeeper for the repository? If it is fully open so that anybody can put anything in, then what prevents malware from getting in it. If only a blessed few are allowed to put something in, then how is this really different than Apples app store?
Correct, I haven't used a *nix variant since college nearly 20 years ago.
Wrong, I use Windows at home and work but my wife and daughter own a couple of older iPods.
