I thought about moderating your comments, but instead I'll post my analysis of your "analysis":

For an article that was about things your kids may never know about, that was a heck of a lot of blather about how the article was wrong because you do all this stuff.

Lucky for you, I didn't need to post two enormous, useless comments just to point this out.

This may come as a surprise to you... but if you can put the number into a webpage... so can that person in authority. Whether it's a receipt you keep with the vote readable, or a number you put into a webpage.

Any time that you can verify after you leave the polling place which way your vote was recorded ... so can someone else. And that can lead to very serious consequences. Loss of job, family, the stakes are endless.

All that is required for you to verify your vote is a human-readable paper record that will be kept separate from the electronic record, but doesn't leave the polling place. That way you can verify it after you vote electronically, and if a recount is done, the paper trail box can be unlocked and counted.

That's funny... I submitted it, and I thought it was an interesting thing to read/see, even if it was a bit PR-ish.

That's the way these things work. What you see as just a press release could be what I see as an interesting art show.

All generalizations are a bad thing.


Submission + - Holiday Art in Google Documents...

CyberKnet writes: "Some enterprising folks over at Google have collaborated via Google Documents to create holiday art using cells in a spreadsheet as the pixels. A time delay video was taken and is available over at YouTube and the result is pretty spectacular. More info on how they did this is available behind the scenes. They're inviting people to share their own masterpieces or post a video response over on YouTube."

If you think that you misunderstood him then the appropriate thing to do is to apologize, not to attempt to further insult him. And then you should probably think longer about whether you understand what people are saying before you post online about something.

It's great that you take initiative to learn a lot of languages, I applaud you for that. However, the effort you have expended in this endeavor does not entitle you to behave as badly as you have.

You should really consider apologizing.
