Comment They need more censorship (Score 4, Funny) 82

Twitter is obviously failing because they have refused to make Twitter a safe space from fascist Nazis like:
1. Trump.
2. Anybody who doesn't support Hillary (with the exception of Bernie supporters who converted by the deadline set forth in form 402-33R6).
3. White racists... oh wait, I should have just said "all white people with the exception of those we approve of".
4. Non-atheists*
5. Homophobes (e.g. anyone not gay).
6. Cisgendered
7. Gay people aren't really gay because they don't think what we tell them to think (looking at you Milo & Thiel!)
8. Any racist sports figures that don't flip the bird or at least kneel during the National Anthem.

* MUSLIMS ARE AN EXCEPTION (assuming you are violent that is).

I think that after these impure hate-mongers have been burned off from Twitter that the safe space will flourish and all problems will be solved.

Comment Re:So says every SJW attacking Peter Thiel (Score 1, Troll) 427

"Thiel gave $1.25M to a candidate who'd just had it revealed he has serious problems with women (to put a politically correct spin on it),"

Sure sounds like Hillary/Bill to me.

" who is/was telling people he wouldn't accept the results of the election if he loses,"

Maybe you have a point there. After all, it sounds like Trump is agreeing with Al Gore and that's not a good look.

" and who previously has supported violence against his opponents,"

Yeah, Hillary supports violence right now and violated campaign finance laws to coordinate the violence. Ever seen Project Veritas?

" who is threatening legal sanctions against his opponents and the press,"

Sounds like Clinton to me too.

" and who has engaged in racial scapegoating and in dehumanizing minorities."

Basket of Deplorables. Not to mention the racist lynch mob waiting for any "minority" who gets uppity and doesn't lick Massa Hilary's boots like a good little house slave.

Comment Re:Sorry - whose car is this? (Score 2) 305

All the major auto manufacturers have abused the DMCA when it comes to their computers, and I vehemently oppose that (but good luck finding a car that doesn't apply to)...

But this? This moves us into a whole different ballpark of abuse.

Fourth'ing the GGGP - I had fully planned to buy a Tesla as my next car (probably five-ish years from now). If this policy stands, despite having no intention of ever actually renting my car out, fuck Tesla.

Comment Live by the media hype die by the media hype. (Score 5, Insightful) 269

So Elon's panties are all up in a bunch over supposedly overblown negative media coverage?

How about all the overblown positive media coverage he's been lapping up for years while running an unprofitable business that caters to wealthy customers getting taxpayer funded bonuses to buy his cars?

Isn't it fair that all of that media coverage should be withdrawn too?

Comment Why? (Score 1) 39

blindingly fast peak download speeds of around 5Gbps.

And why, exactly, would I want that? So I can hit my monthly data cap in a mere 16 seconds?

Oh, but the carriers will increase caps accordingly? Bullshit. My cap went from "nonexistent" before 3G, to "10GB EVDO throttled down to unlimited 1xRTT" with 3G, to "10GB +$10/GB" with 4G. I don't see the carriers as likely to give up easy money just because new tech means we can rack up overage charges even faster.

Comment Re:Uh, the name... (Score 2) 275

I appreciate the lesson in pronunciation (sincerely, I don't mean that as sarcasm); but TFA didn't pull that particular transliteration out of their asses - The Western world has used "Asgard" as the standard spelling for at least a century.

Sometimes, we don't get it right - Tao Te Ching. Bane Sidhe. The entire Welsh language... This "project" has sooo much more wrong with it than the name, no need to resort to picking nits. :)

Comment Obvious reason (Score 1) 310

I fall into this group, and while the reason definitely involves "frustration", it has nothing to do with stupidity or difficulty learning the new system. Instead, I use my tablet for navigation in my car for one very, very trivial reason:

It doesn't lock me out of using it while moving!
