Comment Battlestar... (Score 1) 470

came pretty close to getting it right. Among more mainstream SciFi space content, they got it as close to right as I've seen. Constant thruster usage, projectiles, no such thing as "up", silence outside of the vehicles.

Let me sum the whole argument up. The 2nd amendment is often misinterpreted to mean that a militia is required for gun ownership. In fact, it is the opposite. Guns are required in order to have a militia. Put into simplified modern language, the amendment reads "Because we need a well regulated militia, we must ensure that the people have a right to carry weapons".

In other words, the militia is not a condition for gun ownership. Gun ownership is a condition for having a militia.

Yes, mine does . When they implemented this, they openly informed everyone and held a Q&A session. Certificates were provided along with setup instructions for browsers. I don't have an issue with it for 3 reasons.

1) They were open about it from day 1.
2) They do not intercept and inspect connections with certain types of sites(banking, healthcare, etc.) and YES I have verified this.
3) They have obviously limited the ports being intercepted(kind of pointless) because I can establish HTTPS connections to servers using non-standard ports without the normally required certificate. This also means that I can tunnel all of my internet activity via SSH through my home server when I choose to.
