>> I expect Microsoft is going to be like IBM dropping its consumer products

We can only hope. The moment that AAA games developers finally end their windows exclusivity and take Linux seriously I'll be formatting my Windows partition, since I only use it for gaming and already do everything else under Linux. Been saying that for decades now though.

Yeah I wish slashdot would just remove that whole option, and so put a giant brake on all the gutless passive-aggressive morons and outright trolls.
They should at least add a viewing filter option to hide all the AC posts.
I've already made it a general rule to only respond to posters that have the balls to at least stand behind their own words by not posting as AC.

>> Many cancers cannot be even remotely considered as routinely curable. Prostate cancer happens to be one of them.

Breast cancer also used to not be even remotely considered as routine curable, yet now it is, thanks to the billions that people donate to it. This is EXACTLY why prostate cancer does need more attention and research money.

>> Men are the ones who are deciding NOT to treat prostate cancer.
Thats not what the article says at all. Did you even read it?
It actually says "More Men With Early Prostate Cancer Are Choosing to Avoid Treatment".

>> So no, I'm not furthering any stereotype, you jerk.

Yes you absolutely are. Jerk yourself.

Gee who knew that sitting too much is only something that affects post-menopausual women?

And since Prostate cancer USUALLY doesn't actually kill you quickly, then men should just suck it up and keep donating to Susan G Komen instead?

Yeah thanks for being part of the problem and further reinforcing the stereotype by just laughing it off with a boob joke. I didn't expect that from you of all people.

Why did they just study women?
It seems like anything that affects women gets attention, while society doesn't even value men.
Another prime example is the massive amount of attention and funding that breast cancer gets compared to prostate cancer, even though 1 in 7 men get prostate cancer while 1 in 8 women get breast cancer.
