... RNA misspellings originally discovered in the white blood cells were also in the skin cells. And the misspellings aren’t just rare, random mistakes. “When DNA and RNA differ from each other it happens in nearly every RNA” copy, Li says.

Yes, that's the right thing to do. As I said the first time, "Ambulances in the US will take you to the nearest hospital with appropriate facilities for your condition." Since the hospital that was a bit further was a facility more appropriate for your grandmother's condition, it was right to take her there.

Did you read the rest of my post (the part that you didn't quote) where I addressed the actions that they should take, instead of just turning off autoreply?

Regardless of the information density of his post, I disagree with his assertion that Hotmail should flip the 'autoreply' bit on these accounts. I do not think Hotmail wants to get involved in guessing whether or not someone intended to set any particular auto-reply message: "Surely, Mr. Jones, you didn't intend to drop an F-bomb in your auto-reply."

More to the point, these are hacked accounts. If you were going to take any action, *disabling* (even temporarily) the accounts and flagging them for forensic follow-up would strike me as more appropriate.

It hurts like hell, but if you have the willpower, its completely doable. There is a difference between pain and impairment. The worst impairment is loss of visual acuity.

That sounds fine at first glance, but remember that Apple is the one who eagerly states they are ready to fight for their patents.

Si modifying a bit your scenario, the method of turning lead into gold is actually quite straightforward and obvious, with Nokia also arriving at it. But then the small company starts to bark; this Nokia sees as an entity not willing to "Reasonable and Nondiscriminatory" relations (remember any relations involves two entities, works both ways...)
