We did it, slashdot!

And 3 seconds later there'd be 50 more apps just like it. Prank your friends with an alert that the phone is going to explode! Use your phone on an airplane with this app that claims the battery is fine!
How do you know if you have an unsafe phone if you don't read slashdot and don't know your battery indicator is supposed to turn green if you're OK?
Seriously, if they're going to push out an alert, it needs to go to the people with explodey batteries, and leave people with OK batteries out of it. A nice big popup reading "This device has been recalled due to exploding. Please return it to the store you purchased it from" that cycles through a few dozen languages and cannot be dismissed except to use the phone.
No, that's just you putting words in my mouth. I explicitly said the opposite earlier in this threat.
Well, she's dead now. She reached a point where the suffering had gone on so long that she felt putting a rope around her neck and strangling herself until her vision went black and she shit her own pants.
But hey, at least you know the shameful history of a woman you have never met on the other side of the world.
People have feelings. They make mistakes, then change in response to those mistakes. The horrible thing about this is, she was actively prevented from growth by people who wanted to freeze her identity at a moment in her development which caused her pain, and force her to writhe there, suffering, for the rest of her life.
You can make all the comments you want about openness and transparency and accountability, and they may have merit, but that doesn't change the fact that this woman genuinely grew past the point where these videos accurately reflected her as a human being, she tried to communicate that, no one would listen, so she killed herself. The people didn't have a greater understanding, they had a misunderstanding which could not be corrected, and we lost her and everything she had to offer as a consequence.
I can relate. I wish I'd hung myself instead of trying to overdose, I might be enjoying her peace.
So wait, now slashdot is filtering for content on the front end? I mean, the lameness filter always (except before it did) did basic checks for ascii art and all caps, but now they're checking for insulting people?
This is a "spectacularly brain-damaged suggestion" and "drug-fueled".
I never really counted them before...
I mean, vague enough that it acknowledges there are circumstances under which the dependents should be left to die.
If they didn't want it on facebook, they'd have put a naked kid on front.
And some people forget that fly ash is made by burning coal. It would be interesting to see if they simply wasted the heat from the coal though.
When all your personal needs have been met, compassion is practical. When you are weakening your ability to be productive by not meeting your own needs, compassion is impractial. Pretty straightforward.
