The rule of my ID is to prove I really am me. It was issued by the government. It does exactly that. It DOESN'T vouch for me as a human being. The save here. The cert vouches that I am dealing with phishme.paypall.com... it doesn't say that said site is run by a stand up guy you should trust. Never has... Never will... Was never SUPPOSED to. HTH!
You have a basic lack of understanding of the purpose of certs. They guarantee that if you try to connect to phishme.com that you indeed are connecting to phishme.com and not being MITMed. It is NOT the purpose of a cert to say that phishme.com is or is not a safe place to go. The onus of that remains upon you regardless of if you use HTTP or HTTPS.
They Target the audience successfully, unless your claim is that racists don't like Wal Mart. The complaint is that those companies don't like some of their potential and actual customers, not that their ads are wasted on them.
Don't be a moron. This has nothing to do with minimum wage possibly getting set at a reasonable number. They are going to do it either way and you know it, so stop pushing your absurd political agenda.
So you already have a patched version working the way you want without having to involve the vendor at all (you chose to do so after the fact, it isn't a requirement.) So you are saying it ISN'T true then, really, aren't you now?
Many of us here are competent. This means we wouldn't go near SAS or any similar company with a ten foot pole. I have heard of SAS. What I remember about them is another one of those companies that has a business model that relies on customer ignorance. That's all I need to know or remember, and if you are thinking of arguing to the contrary, this article probably isn't the place to do it;-)
I'm really big on getting to know a person before I sleep with them. I know a lot of people think it is weird, but I like to know, for example, if they really exist and if they are a male or female. YMMV of course;-()
