Funny how you make all these claims that are impossible to prove since your crapware is CLOSED SOURCE!

So, all we have is your word...the word of a spammer, that you don't use any functions you didn't write yourself. Yet again, silly arguments shot down without the barest effort. Once again, you resort to insults since you know your arguments have failed.

Also, it is rather rich when you call other's offtopic (AmicusNYCL) and troll (me), when you are the biggest offtopic troll of them all, proven by the mods!

"In the four years since the inspectors left, intelligence reports show that Saddam Hussein has worked to rebuild his chemical and biological weapons stock, his missile delivery capability, and his nuclear program. He has also given aid, comfort, and sanctuary to terrorists, including al Qaeda members. It is clear, however, that if left unchecked, Saddam Hussein will continue to increase his capacity to wage biological and chemical warfare, and will keep trying to develop nuclear weapons."

Sen. Hillary Clinton (D, NY), Oct 10, 2002


Seems she was arguing for the war, not sure what quotes you have to offer up, but you didn't offer any, so I am not sure if they exist.

Remember, all quotes must be from before the war started for her to have been speaking out against the war.

Perhaps you should go back to remedial English yourself. You were replying to a comment about people shot by police, mentioned Gray, then named off a bunch of people and completed with everyone else that was shot. You were talking about people shot by cops, Gray wasn't shot by cops, and incidentally, all charges in the case were dropped today. No one was found to have acted in even the barest criminal manner in the case, and the cops were following the guidance they were trained on, which had just been changed 6 days before the incident.

The Gray case was a horrible accident, but it does not belong in a list of people shot by police, when talking about shootings by police.


who knows wtf happened with Gray?

Well, since the medical examiner told everyone who bothered to read the report exactly what happened, I can't imagine how you could NOT know what happened. The base of his skull struck an exposed bolt in the side of the police van, which damaged his spinal cord and caused near instantaneous death. All his pleas to go to medical before that turned out to just be him trying to get away as his injuries were not severe (before the spinal cord injury which would have prevented speech).

medical examiners reported Gray sustained more injuries as a result of slamming into the inside of the transport van, "apparently breaking his neck; a head injury he sustained matches a bolt in the back of the van".

from: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/...


Three officers were acquitted as there was no evidence of malice, and the prosecutor was unable to prove a crime had even occurred, and so now she dropped the charges in the remaining cases as she doesn't think she can prove they did anything wrong either. Then she goes on a rant against police investigating police claiming that is the reason she can't prove the crimes. When she announced the charges originally, it was pretty obvious it was more about her political career than anything the officers did wrong, as they were following department policy as they had been taught.

Funny, how you didn't prove me wrong, just attempted to appeal to authority as if that changes what I said. It is easy, I agree, that is why you lose every time.

Keep it up, this is fun to me; almost as much fun as reading AmicusNYCL tear you apart.

Yes, overload it. Try going to any site not in your hosts file and you will see exactly what I mean. You are abusing a piece of the network stack and slowing your computer at the same time. Just because you are too inexperienced with computers to understand why, does not make me in any way wrong, and your consistent attempts to degrade me just prove me right.

I'm sorry, let me adjust one thing.

I am currently showing according to VZ's site as using >175GB/month on my FiOS connection, not 100GB/Mo. This is considered as "Power User" levels to Verizon, and I don't even do anything like torrenting. Just the minor streaming, and Steam doing game updates.

Verizon advertises:
that 4G LTE is 5-12 Mbit with 50 Mbit peak. I don't see how using 300kb/s sustained is any form of abuse. This isn't even torrent levels. I push more than that through my FiOS connection playing video games and watching Netflix for a few hours a night (along with my two kids video gaming and Youtubing).

Many people bought these unlimited plans to run their internet for their house...this is what they were originally offering. Are you trying to tell me that you think that 100 GB/month is excessive for a home internet connection?

Comment Re:Reaching the limits of the unlimited (Score 1) 421

I would have to read the contract that the people originally signed, but my understanding was that as long as the customer didn't make any plan changes, the plan stayed in effect, which is why they were continuing to honor the original unlimited plans for so long (it has been a long time since they were offered, I remember giving mine up to get to 4G).

I wonder why they suddenly think they can get out of the original contracts, as they won't let other customers out of their contracts anywhere as easily.

I wish they would let me out of mine so I can shift to Google Project Fi, but I am just waiting them out for now.
