Comment Happens To Me All The Time (Score 1) 619

I also have a pretty simple, short GMail address and I'm always getting emails for people with a similar name to mine. For regular people, I reply back. For bulk company stuff, I just try to unsubscribe.

In a few really annoying cases where I can't completely unsubscribe, I've reset people's password's, logged into their accounts and changed their email addresses. A couple times I changed their names to something like "Captain Dipshit".


Disputed Island Disappears Into Sea 460

RawJoe writes "India and Bangladesh have argued for almost 30 years over control of a tiny island in the Bay of Bengal. Now rising sea levels have ended the argument for them: the island's gone. From the article: 'New Moore Island, in the Sunderbans, has been completely submerged, said oceanographer Sugata Hazra, a professor at Jadavpur University in Calcutta. Its disappearance has been confirmed by satellite imagery and sea patrols, he said. "What these two countries could not achieve from years of talking, has been resolved by global warming," said Hazra.'"

Comment Census Hypocricy (Score 1) 902

Funny how most of the people who are suddenly concerned about the census invading their privacy by citing examples of WWII Japanese interment camps and Muslim tracking the same people who just a couple years earlier defended WWII Japanese internment camps (see Michelle Malkin) and advocated keeping a closer eye on American Muslims.

Now that a black man is President, they're scared that the government is asking them what race they are.
