Comment Trust, but verify (Score 0) 388

If you'll never use the passcode, there is no reason to have it. Asking for it is, ipso facto, reason not to trust you with it. The best solution is for the child to lie to you about the passcode. If you can be trusted, you will never find out about the lie. If you ever do find out they lied, you've proven they were justified.

You don't get to decide things you don't pay for. The people that pay for things gets to decide them.

If you ever feel the need to install an ad blocker, you're doing it wrong.

Hence why CNN doesn't get to decide whether their ads display on the computer I paid for or not.

Comment If a thing is dangerous with drones... (Score 1) 200

It's that thing that is dangerous, not the drones. Drones are never going to get any more expensive than they are now. They're only going to get cheaper, more disposable, and harder to trace back to their pilot.

People are going to do whatever they please with them. If some other activity isn't compatible, then it's that activity we'll have to restrict.
