Comment Re:Expectation of anonymity? (Score -1) 476

ou really don't have the slightest fucking idea what is being discussed here do you?

Hint: It has exactly fuck all to do with the crap you're discussing.

At first i thought you were just poorly informed, now I realize, you just don't understand what "anonymity" is and how it relates to the current discussion.

And as an aside, Mark Felt outed himself, he was never discovered by anyone. Seems to prove that your point is totally false, apart from NOT HAVING ANYTHING TO DO WITH THIS DISCUSSION.

God, it's like you don't know you're demonstrating your stupidity with every post.

Read that so you realize why you're still wrong.

"Imagine a graffiti artist" breaking the law and thus forfeiting his right to anonymity?

WTF does that have to do with anything?

Oh right, it's yet ANOTHER stupid fucking straw man because you don't have the intellectual ability to debate intelligently.

You're WRONG. You keep posting the same stupid shit, and you're STILL WRONG.

All the stupid logical fallacies in the world won't change that.


Submission + - 1,000 London CCTV cameras 'solve one crime' (

SpuriousLogic writes: Only one crime was solved by each 1,000 CCTV cameras in London last year, a report into the city's surveillance network has claimed. The internal police report found the million-plus cameras in London rarely help catch criminals. In one month CCTV helped capture just eight out of 269 suspected robbers. David Davis MP, the former shadow home secretary, said: "It should provoke a long overdue rethink on where the crime prevention budget is being spent." He added: "CCTV leads to massive expense and minimum effectiveness. "It creates a huge intrusion on privacy, yet provides little or no improvement in security. "The Metropolitan Police has been extraordinarily slow to act to deal with the ineffectiveness of CCTV."

"We (in the US) have a right to free speech. We do not have a right to anonymous free speech."



the judge quoted a Virginia court that ruled in a similar case that nameless online taunters should be held accountable when their derision crosses a line. 'The protection of the right to communicate anonymously must be balanced against the need to assure that those persons who choose to abuse the opportunities presented by this medium can be made to answer for such transgressions

Do you see that part where a judge quoted the Virginia court as recognizing the right to COMMUNICATE ANONYMOUSLY?

Yeah, that part where the right is established as clearly legally recognized?

It proves you irrefutably wrong.

Of course, you can try to argue that a legally recognized right is not a right, it's the kind of ridiculous crap people who have been totally proven wrong try every day, but I suspect you're feeling dumb enough about being wrong already.

"An ad hominem argument, also known as argumentum ad hominem (Latin: "argument to the man" or "argument against the man") consists of replying to an argument or factual claim by attacking or appealing to a characteristic or belief of the person making the argument or claim, rather than by addressing the substance of the argument or producing evidence against the claim."

Now you know why your way of thinking is worthless, as was your post which showed it off.

Hopefully the moderator who wasted a point modding up a 3rd grade "argument" realizes it too now.

It is the systematic promotion of one group of people and oppression of a different group of people.

FT racism FY, please try to avoid lying about definitions in order to forward your racist agenda.

"racism [rey-siz-uhm] Show IPA
noun 1. a belief or doctrine that inherent differences among the various human races determine cultural or individual achievement, usually involving the idea that one's own race is superior and has the right to rule others.
2. a policy, system of government, etc., based upon or fostering such a doctrine; discrimination.
3. hatred or intolerance of another race or other races."

All three of those definitions prove you're a lying racist.

And to rephrase *my* point, I am aware of this lack of a death penalty in the UK already and posted with that in mind and mentioned that situation specifically, which is why that point being made & re-made as if I had left it out is redundant.

I know I suffered a bit of Typonese, but am I writing with invisible ink too? :|

No, what you actually did was prove you know fuck all about UK law, and make an ass of yourself trying to backpedal once you realized it.

STFU now, you've embarrassed yourself enough already.

I'm getting real tired of this attitude. My generation isn't stupid. They know what they're doing -- they're creating a transparent society where we can all be a bit more polite to one another because everyone has dirt on everyone else, and because we want to put ourselves out there and make friends, rather than dying alone in some castle with all our toys like the boomers are right now, because they wanted their precious privacy.

No, they don't.

But I like your rationalizations, they sound like the kind of stupidity that would go over well in a smoke filled dorm room.

Don't bother, it won't make you missing the entire point any less painful.

In short, while what you say there may be true, it is irrelevant to the point.
