"Giving more power to someone whose ascension and behavior strike fear into so many people is unacceptable."
This statement equally applies to Hillary Clinton.
Both are absolutely unacceptable, and I can not in good conscience vote for either of them, and won't.
I'm currently wavering between voting for Johnson, or writing in Cthulhu.
But this witch-hunt going after anyone who expresses support for Trump is outright fascism.
The only time I was in a vehicle with built in navigation it was a rental and the system would lock the GPS system while it was in drive - and I was the passenger, not the driver, trying to punch stuff in. Truly annoying, and indeed, caused me to just use my phone.
This. The built-in navigation on many cars locks the whole dang thing into read-only mode whenever the car is moving. My phone doesn't have this nonsense limitation. Yet another reason I will never by a built-in navigation system ever again. (That $300 map update thing is another.)
Neither my wife nor I answer the phone if the Caller-ID isn't one we recognize, so I've just seen these things in the voicemail transcripts that get emailed to me, but they're relentless high-volume callers. Or (past-tense, I hope) were. The few I listened to did sound computer generated.
One of the major things that needs to be fixed is to put an end to IP address spoofing. Generally, the worst of these attacks are some sort of amplification attack, where the attacker sends requests to some legitimate service that comes back with a large amount of data, and spoofs his IP address to the target of the DDoS. The first thing every ISP router should check on any packet is "Is it reasonable for a packet from this IP address to come in on this wire?" and if not, drop it. And at some point, "If you allow packets with spoofed IP addresses out of your network, we won't talk to you. At all."
Yeah, there may be some legitimate uses of spoofed IP addresses for diagnostic purposes, but as has been said elsewhere, "This is why we can't have nice things."
Kill files based on keywords and users would be a boon. It's not so much about being "offended", it's more about killing a lot of crap.
This. I want to kill file , for starters, any mention of Trump, Clinton, anyone associated however remotely with the Kardumassians, football, and celebrity gossip.
Maybe some of the outer walls would fall off, but there would be a central core at least 1/2 to 1/3 of the height of the building sticking up.
I don't know why I'm attempting the hopeless task of trying to educate a "loose change" type person, but this shows you don't know how the Twin Towers were constructed. The outer walls were the structure. It was not hanging off of a central core. And before you do the tired old "fire can not soften steel" thing, google "Sherman's Neckties".
Beats me why many people think one of these is a great thing and the other is a problem.
One reason: Compulsion. "You are not permitted to have a job unless you join the union, submit to all our rules, work based on strict seniority as if everyone in each particular job were identical interchangeable worker-units, and activities rigidly controlled by job description, including requiring you to call a Union Electrician when you want to unplug your desk lamp and plug it in on the other side of your desk, you must walk off the job and bad-mouth the employer when and how we tell you to, and pay us a substantial percentage of your pay for the privilege, much of which goes to political candidates you despise. And if you don't like it, tough cookies, you don't get to have a job unless we say so."
Remove the compulsion, and I don't have a problem with them. Cue shrieks of outrage about "freeloaders" from all the totalitarians at this point.
Optimization hinders evolution.
