Comment A bullshit story. (Score 2, Insightful) 294

The two sources are both from the US intelligence -- the same intelligence community that sold us the debunked "Russia hacked the US election" story. The same intelligence community that The Intercept reports as being increasingly powerful political actors and manipulators in the US, and that The Intercept reported as having an interest in undermining the democratically-elected Trump administration, and by extension the democratic process itself.

All the other parties involved -- the US government, the Russian government, Edward Snowden & friends -- deny the story.

There are no other sources other than the US intelligence, and they have a recent history of lying for political reasons. They're not credible sources. Plainly, it's bullshit.

Comment I don't buy it. (Score 2, Insightful) 37

We already know that the US intel community released a report where they lied about Russian hacking of the US elections.

So, why should I believe, again without proof, that the attack was from the Russian state?

It makes no sense. They wanted to bury the stories critical of Putin? Then they wouldn't hack Sundance; Streisand effect. But it makes sense in the continuing context of the US intel community trying to frame Russia to build the case with the public for a later war against them.

It just screams of setup; I have no reason to have confidence in the Hollywood Reporter's claims.

HAHA. Hahaha. Hahahahaha. Ha ha ha... Ha...

Comment Yet another lying Slashdot blurb. (Score 1) 262

From the Slashdot post:

>Under the European Union's new draft plan, Europe's growing army of robot workers could be classed as "electronic persons," with their owners liable to paying social security for them.

From the article:

>The draft motion, drawn up by the European parliament's committee on legal affairs also said organizations should have to declare savings they made in social security contributions by using robotics instead of people, for tax purposes.

Comment What is equality? (Score 1) 274

>Then the freaking women need to start drinking more if they want to be equal.

Men and women are fundamentally equal except for social, cultural, hormonal and genital differences. The other range of differences are individual.

Women, or anyone, don't need to drink more, because they're already fundamentally equal (except for the 4 things I've wrote). The other differences... are individual.

This is an egalitarian view on equality.

Feminism is about women's rights, not people's rights. Men's rights activists are also social justice warriors, except they advocate for men.

They are both enemies of equality. Equality is a third solution.

We're all fundamentally equal, so no race, gender, or whatever, should be privileged over another, and the best individuals should rise to the top, because the differences are individual. Same wise, the enemies of equality can be of any race or gender; they can't be stereotyped. We are tolerant, but not tolerant of intolerance.

Comment The US does the same. (Score 1) 83

Certain IRC channels are being interfered by US professional trolls. They work in teams and create fake discussions to influence and to bait out radicals.

Here is one log of two of them trying to bait with supposedly secret information on drone technology. Notice that the main one mirrors radical ideas as bait, too.

I imagine that this is done to prevent another Snowden.

Comment There is no crisis. (Score 1) 950

Or, there is a simple solution: embrace it.

The "crisis" comes from these pornosexual men feeling guilt for not conforming to outdated masculinity ideals. Now that they're altered, they don't _need_ sex, or _need_ women; porn is more satisfying and can fill all their sexual needs if they educate themselves on masturbation. This is liberating in the sense that sex becomes a choice, that you're in a relationship not because you need sex, but because it benefits both of you to be together.

The same goes for trading the mythical, idealized "having a life" with videogames + Internet. If they "had a life" they would find that it's not what it's cracked up to be; that it's not partying and friendships, but is instead dull and dreary at its best for most people. When compared to what a guy can get from videogames + Internet this "life" is a crappy deal. That they want "a life" is a sign that they don't know what that means, or how it realistically compares to the experience of videogames + Internet.

Life, without quotes, encompasses videogames + Internet; the difference that I'm evangelizing is that the advantages outweigh the disadvantages in giving a much stronger focus to the digital life. It's better.
