You go to the second argument. I needed to cross the first one, before opening the second.
Bullshit. You're a pissant.
There's no reason I can't or shouldn't provide remote access to my files for my use, and those of people I chose, on a host of my choice, on my uplink.
There's no reason I can't or shouldn't run my personal mail server - as long as I am able to prevent relaying or other abuse.
This is the purpose and tradition of the best-effort, edge-service, peer-to-peer design of IP packet-switched, interconnected networks. PERIOD.
Driving me to GMail's business model, or Dropbox's or anybody else's is abuse. Corporations don't acquire special rights through monetising service offerings. DIY for home/limited scale is the point - or you can go back to TV and Radio.
I always pointed out on slashdot, just HOW MUCH trust was being put in Google, with how little understanding of their operation as a publicly traded company.
The fanbois for Google - which have a huge intersection with slashdot readership - nearly always mod-bomb these observations as flamebait or trolling. Contrariness is only rewarded when it chooses a popular target.
Google's hand-waving of good will always gets trumped by their desire to control revenue. But like a stage magician, those who want to believe continue their suspension of reality.
Google's real motivations afford them selling out customers for the value of their "private" information. You can now see, in this one, more obvious way, how principle is secondary to business and profit - through the artificial tiering of "business class" service. There is no "business class" IP.
Outside of a court, an oath means nothing
If there's an independent witness then it's a solid verbal contract in most legal systems around the world. In this case we're talking about the military who have their own oaths, laws, courts, police, judges, and jails. A soldiers "pinky swear" is taken very seriously by that system, especially when it's broken. I've never been a soldier but the fact that you appear to believe a (wo)man's word means nothing outside a court of law indicates the principle of "integrity" is too expensive for your particular personality.
That means the envelope Google sends to the NSA will be twice as heavy.
Life there is pretty good. And it's beautiful, right time of year.
There IS a structural problem with that sentence.
I think it is missing an article.
That is a slavery and coercion issue. Not will and independent volition.
You cannot say that trafficking and child-marriage is an issue that emerges from an abundance of supporting women's personal choices or empowerment.
Or maybe you can, if you wish to change fact or context to suit your ideology.
In fact, your PJ media article seeks to control women's behavior through shaming and humiliation - but is more aligned with the Taliban, and control of women, rather than the individual autonomy of conscience familiar to Jean Jacques Rousseau or Henry David Thoreau.
You figure out what should be done with it, how, and for whom.
Can I get a SCSI I interface kit, to update the spindle on my B&W NeXT Cube?
Why are they required to read "Diary of Ann Frank", but not "Black Like Me"?
Which one is really relevant to the actual understanding of social, civil and human rights in the society that they are a part of?
Which one do they have a daily context for approaching and doing something about?
