Some sort of kill list for long-lived trolls. (That term needs to be defined, but a short definition could be "rude and insincere Sophists".) I think a natural approach for slashdot would be an improved "foe" option, but the entire friend/foe thing is so borken (sic) that I wouldn't even donate towards fixing it (unless the proposed project was amazing).
That is a challenge that often splits on partisan beliefs. I can tell you that more than once I have wandered into conservative echo chambers here on slashdot and attempted to have a discussion with them only to have them call me a sophist.
You're probably well aware that while some people use the foes list as a perma-hate list, it does not have to be that way. If you really wanted someone to stop commenting in your JE, you can use the foes list to squelch them for whatever amount of time you want (although functionally some people just that time "forever"). One problem though is it requires you to 1, be a subscriber and 2, set your JE comment setting to something like "no foes". Another problem is that if you foe someone to silence them in the discussion they could just as well set up a new account and come right back in if they felt so inclined.
Please provide examples of this buddy-buddy relationship you're describing, which appears to be exactly the opposite of reality.
Drumpf has praised Putin many times on the campaign trail. This has made the news numerous times. If you don't watch the news and don't know how to use a search engine I don't see how I can help you.
They released the evidence
Not for your claim, they did not. There was not a single shred of evidence for the grandiose claim you levelled just a couple comments ago where you made up the bit about
E-mail server and other links led up to the debacle in Libya.
We both know you have no evidence whatsoever to support that claim.
There is plenty wrong with Candidate Hillary Clinton. You don't need to make shit up or regurgitate tired and fact-free conspiracies; you just make yourself look more absurd in the process.
The implied choice is between MS and Sony
I disagree. The question was "Would You Buy or Recommend One?". I don't see how this makes "none of the above" an invalid choice. For me the WiiU is a vastly superior choice to either, though I still prefer none of the above right now.
So you recomend against all consoles. Then why not lead with that, and leave the rest out.
Because I started by answering the question that was posed by the title of the article.
XBone is for people, especially families
I think you have that confused with the Wii and WiiU. Just because XBOne has a component that allows you to play a dozen or so games without the traditional controller does not mean they are actively trying to get families involved in gaming. Look no further than the game sales volumes and you'll see where their real interests are; the top selling titles for both the Sony and MS consoles are of the same genre, and with the exception of the console-exclusive titles they are the same games.
But picking PS4 because you like
Maybe someone else preferred the PS4 in this thread, but not me. I don't want the MS or Sony consoles, period. No generation of either has ever been in my home, and I can't see a reason to change that.
Science is what happens when preconception meets verification.
