Facebook users can post and their posts will get to everyone who has not muted them
False. Facebook filters individual pages too. If you make a post, only about 15-20% of your friends will see it on their News Feed if they have their settings for you set at the default (How many updates? "Most Updates"). For friends that have you set to the most visible setting ("All Updates"), you will still only reach about 50-75% of those people.
Now, FB tends to be pretty good about knowing which 50-75% of your friends are most likely to notice that they're missing your posts (the people who are labeled as 'family', those who most often show up in photos with you, and those who are all more active are MUCH more likely to find themselves in the % that SEE your post). But they are NOT transparently passing your message along to all of your friends. And you are not necessarily seeing 100% of the posts that your friends make, even if you have your settings made for "All Updates" for a specific friend.
increased warrentless wiretapping of Americans, by giving retroactive immunity to telcos who aided in breaking the law, by fighting for punitive laws that would cripple the internet, by negotiating lousy treaties that would reduce freedom, by sending the FBI to foreign countries to seize property
There, that ought to satisfy the g^Hmods out there...
I would kill to work at a place like Apple.
You're willing to kill for a specific job, and you're calling other people morally bankrupt?
>>>That sort of economy is achievable with a ten year old petrol VW Polo, *without* all the heavy complex hybrid stuff
Unfortunately it would fail the updated U.S. LEV-II standards (too much NOx). The reason MPGs have been dropping in newer cars is because the engine is being tuned to run richer to pass emissions tests.
The best petrol car right now that can pass these tough regs is the Civic HF at 45mpg. And the Chevy CruzeEco at 44. That's very close to what the Civic and Prius hybrids do.
>>>>>Considering emissions on automobiles have been reduced by 99+% (CO, NOx, HC) since the 1970's
>>CO2 emissions from cars have been reduced? Highly doubtful.
Somebody can't read. He never once listed CO2.
As for sources one only needs to look at the EPA which had very lenient standards in the 70s but gradually strengthened them over time. The current standards only allow 1/100th as much pollution as a car built in 1975. (1/1000th in the case of NOx.)
Pohl's law: Nothing is so good that somebody, somewhere, will not hate it.
