Comment Re:Catholicism + Climate Change = Totally Appropri (Score 2) 703

All other plausible non-anthropogenic mechanisms have been investigated and do not explain the observed data. Every aspect has been investigated every which way for decades.

Claiming data and mechanisms are not the same as providing data and mechanism.
You have just claimed, not provided, thus hinting that you are wrong.

Comment Re:Hostile environments (Score 1) 634

Anyway, Slashdot is a perfect example of said hostile environment, from the subtle ("You're joking, there aren't any women on the internet!") to the cesspit that the discussion turns into whenever the topic comes up. I'm sick of it, frankly, and I really should just stop bothering to read the comments on most stories, causing me to lose out on the occasional insightful nugget, but helping my blood pressure. Someday, it might even be bad enough to drive me away.

Which was my point. Telling someone that they are imagining there is a problem is highly offensive, really, and tends to make people not want to be around you.

Your comment is one of the more hostile ones I have seen here.

Comment Stupid corrupt commenters (Score 1) 191

Assange discovers corruption in politics, police, and judiciary, etc.
He then makes some evidence of this public.
Then they attack him, in corrupt ways.
And then he flees into an embassy.

And top commenters here argue he should just bow to corrupt systems,
follow some "laws", as if they were not corrupt.

These commenters are stupid or corrupt, obviously.
