You can not stop the ignorant from promoting ignorance.
It depends on the alternate viewpoints? Some topics don't have much in the way of alternate viewpoints. There isn't "common" ground on a lot of topics it either is or it is not.
Climate change... Everyone agrees that it is science. Everyeone agrees that it is obvious. Of course WHAT is obvious depends on which camp you are in, and you only see news that supports that camp.
This begs the question of why someone would want to get alternative viewpoints. Most people don't want to be regularly exposed to ideas, beliefs, culture, etc., that conflicts with their own. It creates anxiety, anger, and/or dissociation.
This is the point. You never hear the news that you do not want to hear. You never hear about how bad high fructose corn syrup is because you do not know people who know how bad high fructose corn syrup is. You never hear about the Obama encroachments on civil rights because... Or you never hear about republican assults on women because...
iOS 7 is ugly as fuck.
Millions of people love it.
But you, personally, hate it.
So... it must suck.
Millions of people love the Kardashians, Honey BooBoo and Jersey Shore. Your point is irrelevant.
Why doesn't fastmail also use servers that suppress duplicates?
"This is legal IMAP, so our server proceeds to create a new copy of each message in the folder."

Why should anybody go to the U.S., the land of unfreedom that will detain you without due process indefinitely, grope you at airports, shoot at sight, has no democratic control and is rules by secret cabals without accountability?
As much as I hate it, this should be modded +5 Insightfull.
Nothing to see here, move along.
Plenty to see here. Mainly, that businesses now have yet another reason to offshore.
I wonder if "open source tea party" members know more about computer science than non open source tea party members.
their current position: a rabid, economically-ignorant (yet politically-involved) group
I guess you didn't read Slashdot today. http://news.slashdot.org/story/13/10/19/0021208/a-ray-of-hope-for-americans-and-scientific-literacy
I'm SO happy that I pay for software. I don't have to deal with all of this open source drama bullshit, and have to worry about when somebody's temper tantrum decides to end or radically change some software that I rely on for my business. My eyes glazed over halfway through the story summary, and I really don't care.
I agree with you in concept, but how does Windows 8 fit in with that world view?
I think we'd (the Linux community) be a lot farther ahead if they got together and implemented a single solution that solved all the known requirements.
I agree. As long as it is mine, Mine, MINE, MINE DAMNIT!!!!!!!!!
The picking of that solution is the hard part.
The UK if anything has been best of all in this regard, as it involves absolutely no payment when you are treated, which takes a large chunk of stress out of the situation.
Ironic that you post this in an article about NHS potentially discontinuing free care...
After the last of 16 mounting screws has been removed from an access cover, it will be discovered that the wrong access cover has been removed.
