And? You said absolutely anything to counter his argument. But keep attacking your straw men, it really looks like you have a firm grasp on things, anonymous fucktard.
As much as I want to disagree with you, I can't.
Looks like a good counterpoint, until you consider:
Pays to do better research before trying to post gotcha comments.

Downloading is certainly illegal, unless you have a license for the copy then it is a grey area. Put down the crack pipe, seriously, you are only making yourself dumber.
Good thing you posted this anonymously, so people don't know who the fucktard is.
To my mind, what you experience is just confirming what the article is talking about. Logical folks with the means to use taxi services would have used their local system if it had been as convenient and affordable as uber and lyft. There is nothing unique to lyft or uber to truly differentiate themselves from taxi services in terms of reducing drunk driving, if taxi services chose to implement their features.
You are not the impaired driver this article is talking about.
This is talking about the people who have all the convenience, but STILL choose to drive themselves to avoid the hassle of not having their precious car with them.
I guess its all well and good to hate on everything, except your guys right?
The Clayton Act made both substantive and procedural modifications to federal antitrust law. Substantively, the act seeks to capture anticompetitive practices in their incipiency by prohibiting particular types of conduct, not deemed in the best interest of a competitive market. There are 4 sections of the bill that proposed substantive changes in the antitrust laws by way of supplementing the Sherman Antitrust Act of 1890. In those sections, the Act thoroughly discusses the following four principles of economic trade and business:
price discrimination between different purchasers if such a discrimination substantially lessens competition or tends to create a monopoly in any line of commerce (Act Section 2, codified at 15 U.S.C. 13);
sales on the condition that (A) the buyer or lessee not deal with the competitors of the seller or lessor ("exclusive dealings") or (B) the buyer also purchase another different product ("tying") but only when these acts substantially lessen competition (Act Section 3, codified at 15 U.S.C. 14);
mergers and acquisitions where the effect may substantially lessen competition (Act Section 7, codified at 15 U.S.C. 18) or where the voting securities and assets threshold is met (Act Section 7a, codified at 15 U.S.C. 18a);
any person from being a director of two or more competing corporations, if those corporations would violate the anti-trust criteria by merging (Act Section 8; codified 1200 at 15 U.S.C. 19).
Specifically product trying (Act Section 3, codified at 15 U.S.C. 14).

Really the FTC needs to step in and annihilate this behavior, if they can't play fairly, then they don't deserve to play at all.
There is not much possibility of our signals being heard due to the inverse-square law.
Most of our signals will be indistinguishable from the CMB, and if we generate a massive focused beam, we are going to have to be so precise, that it is most likely not feasible. 2 completely unrelated points traveling in 3 dimensional space, and we would somehow have to send and receive a beam (because sending one way is useless) when there is no way to guarantee where the other point will be due to all the exotic forces in the universe. Sounds like magic.
This stuff doesn't work like geostationary satellites, you can just point it in one direction and expect in a million years when you get the reply that they will be in the same spot. Honestly the radio search for ET life is pointless, you would think a bunch of scientists and mathematicians would avoid spending their careers playing the lottery.
