Yeah I wish slashdot would just remove that whole option, and so put a giant brake on all the gutless passive-aggressive morons and outright trolls.
They should at least add a viewing filter option to hide all the AC posts.
I've already made it a general rule to only respond to posters that have the balls to at least stand behind their own words by not posting as AC.

>> Many cancers cannot be even remotely considered as routinely curable. Prostate cancer happens to be one of them.

Breast cancer also used to not be even remotely considered as routine curable, yet now it is, thanks to the billions that people donate to it. This is EXACTLY why prostate cancer does need more attention and research money.

>> Men are the ones who are deciding NOT to treat prostate cancer.
Thats not what the article says at all. Did you even read it?
It actually says "More Men With Early Prostate Cancer Are Choosing to Avoid Treatment".

>> So no, I'm not furthering any stereotype, you jerk.

Yes you absolutely are. Jerk yourself.

Cortana is better than Google at answering questions. Unfortunately, unless the question is very simple, she dumps you into a Bing search, which is even less helpful than Now always dumping you into a Google search. If you're interacting via voice, you shouldn't have to look at your phone or press links. At least in Google, you can often read the answer (after you stop driving/doing whatever it was that prevented you from typing in the first place, of course); with Bing, you end up copying the search text so you can paste it into Chrome to get useful links to answers.

Gee who knew that sitting too much is only something that affects post-menopausual women?

And since Prostate cancer USUALLY doesn't actually kill you quickly, then men should just suck it up and keep donating to Susan G Komen instead?

Yeah thanks for being part of the problem and further reinforcing the stereotype by just laughing it off with a boob joke. I didn't expect that from you of all people.
