And by Homeless hate on reddit you are talking about the people complaining of being assaulted in their own homes

You mean the woman who got punched after she smashed the windows of somebody's van with a hammer while they were in it?

the needles in the parks

Y'all always talk about needles in the parks, but I've yet to see even a single one in three years of living here. I did once see one in a back alley, though.

or the aggressive and sometimes verbally sexual comments that people now have to live with on a daily basis

If you think it's primarily homeless men that are verbally aggressive and sexual to women in the streets, perhaps you haven't ever walked by a bar? I've only been harassed by white guys dressed like they just got off of work.

because of the massive increase of homeless people in Seattle that have flooded here from all over the country.

More than 3/4 of our homeless are from Seattle. 90% are from Washington State.

People say they care about homeless.. you have a home let some homeless people stay there.

Sorry, it's against my lease. Doesn't mean I haven't bent the rules to let someone shower & crash on my couch for a night, but it's kinda cramped with me and my fiancee already.

Then pay your generous (LOL!) 10% tax voluntarily. Nobody is stopping you from doing it except you. Put YOUR money where YOUR mouth is, and shut up about taxing other people who probably need every penny they can get just to keep from being homeless..

("well why don't you donate your money then" - first, I do, and secondly, one person's funds only do so much).

If you believe in liberty and freedom and are against the use of violence to achieve political goals then you should move to New Hampshire to take part in the Free State Project and other liberty oriented organizations that have sprung up.

Sorry, I believe in taxes - no scare quotes necessary. But you have fun in New Hampshire!

Speak for yourself.

I live in Seattle, and I am more than enthusiastic about any plan that will help shelter our homeless neighbors. If I could vote a 10% income tax on myself to pay for making sure that everyone here has a safe place to sleep at night and to leave their belongings, I would.

I believe that mayor Murray's proposed plan announced yesterday is insufficient, but better than the status quo.

You could have shared objects that are just copy-on-write.

However, I'm not convinced that loading 10x copies of a javascript library is the "real memory hog." Even if each library is 10MB, that's only 100MB used. What machine can't afford 100MB? (Mobile devices can use optimization tricks for multiple tabs; as the usage pattern on mobile involves a lot less tab-switching, so it's okay if there's a bit more latency there).

Considering the proximty and time required for a successful hack, the hacker would stand a high risk of being caught and charged with murder or attempted murder.

I'm not sure that's true. I don't see anything in the article saying that it takes very long to carry out, and 25 feet is well within the range of "sitting nearby at a coffee shop."


it is believed these attacks could be performed from one to two kilometers away, if not substantially further, using sufficient elevation and off-the-shelf radio transmission gear available to ham radio hobbyists.
