Was the embed tag really that hard? I'd really prefer the browser defer to plugins that I could choose to NOT INSTALL at all, or defer to the OS.
Bloating up the browser is dumb. It's all the bad of plugins, loaded all the time, without the option to rip them out. How many security updates does Chrome or Firefox or IE have every year?

There is no such thing as criminal speech. Speech is never illegal. You and a lot of lawyers, congressmen, and judges need to go and fucking read.

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

There can be no law that abridges the freedom of speech. Plain as fucking day. Anyone trying to "interpret" it any other way is trying to illegally strip citizens of their rights.

MS won't release SPs anymore because all of their shit in place says SPs add to the support length of the OS.
That's why Windows 8.1 happened instead of Windows 8 SP 1.
That's why 7 had only 1 SP despite desperately needing another. It's so bad Windows Update doesn't work on a fresh Windows 7 install until it crashes twice over 36 hours. The third time usually works after another 8-12 hours.

Welcome to modern "liberals". They employ toddler-level tactics - screaming, lying, refusing to believe the plain and obvious truths presented to them, sticking their fingers in their ears and pretending they don't hear you, attacking anyone that doesn't agree with them, demanding others share with them but never sharing with others, shitting their pants and crying at the first hint of confrontation or hardship, etc.

I consider myself liberal on very many topics, but I would never label myself a "liberal" because of all the fucking shit this generation of twats is pulling.
And yes, this generation is far fucking worse than previous generations.

Of course I do.

Confidential or privileged information is withheld or redacted by the owner during discovery and the court is notified what was withheld or redacted and why. Unrelated information is also withheld.

In situations where lawyers for one party have direct access to the other party's data, they're expected to be ethical and not go diving for shit unrelated to the case at hand. In instances where parties can't agree about what should be turned over, what or how much should be redacted, etc. the court steps in, often assigning a third party to make those determinations.

Try harder, troll.
