Let's encrypt (LE) runs some kind of agent that does some voodoo to automatically renew certs on a quarterly basis.... If certs want to be free why not just let them be free without requiring these weird agents and piecemeal expiry periods? What's the point in that?
Stray thought: if they renew every 3 months as you describe, I wonder if that's intended to be a substitute for the cert-revocation abilities that come with CAs?
Trump will soon have the power and authority to launch a Preemptive Nuclear Strike and you are worried about the misuse of the WEA's Text Messages?!
Trump will soon have the power to incarcerate you at a whim, and you are worried that he might try to fuck your wife?!?
And with all this HTTPS everywhere malarkey
I call bullshit on you. The EFF's HTTPS-Everywhere is not "malarkey".
I don't know if you're trying to imply that HTTPS-Everywhere forces people to use HTTPS (it doesn't) and that therefor more people are self-signing certs which is would somehow be bad (it isn't)... I can only guess, because your post reads like buzzword bingo, and seems quite intent on undermining confidence in encrypting.
bull SHIT, brother.
Not only are carbon and silicon both extremely abundant in Earth's crust - they're also very similar in their chemical make-up.
But for a cosmic flip of the coin, we could all be silicon-based beings, and our women could have carbon implants.
In a second, more technical, blogpost published that same day, Facebook's Martin Luis Gomez and Andrew Cox acknowledged the failure in passing. "Our first flight lasted three times longer than the minimum mission length, so we were able to gather data on how the structure and autopilot responded under a range of real-world conditions to help verify these predictions," they wrote.
I read that three times trying to figure out whether the "in passing" mention of failure was so subtle that I was missing it. Nope, the editors simply left out the actually relevant quote:
“We are still analysing the results of the extended test, including a structural failure we experienced just before landing. We hope to share more details on this and other structural tests in the future,” Cox and Gomez added.
If everybody took the approach that [they make their] own decisions about these issues, then it would be very hard to have an organized government or any kind of national security system.
The "if I let everyone do xyz then it wouldn't work, and I'm therefor never allowing ANY xyz" argument is a classic strawman.
If everybody in the world became mayor of a town then we'd starve to death because nobody would be producing food... YET we selectively allow people to become mayor all the time.
Snowden did not make arbitrary decisions about something mundane to make a buck... he made a very careful, thoughtful decision, expressly for the public good and NOT for any kind of personal profit (in fact it has cost him dearly, even if he were to get pardoned today, which apparently he won't). Shame on Obama for sound-biting it as though pardoning Snowden would lead to a public clamor for all people who make any decision about anything.
Well, I don't see too many Ammonites or Moabites around, so no worries!
yeah, the questions could get harder as you go up...

"It was formerly supposed that the working of the laws of supply and demand would naturally regulate or eliminate that evil.

Elon Musk's Mars Colony Would Have a Horde of Mining Robots
Good, because it sure as hell won't have any humans.
Negative Media Coverage of Autonomous Vehicles Could be 'Killing people'
Whereas sending people to Mars, that won't kill anyone. If anything it will result in a baby surplus.
