I do believe that there have been numerous tapes from bin Laden confessing to being behind so many atrocities. His guilt was certified by his own words. If there is any doubt in your mind that bin Laden was behind the 9/11 bombing, several embassy bombings, the Cole bombing and many other terrorist attacks, then you are sadly deluded. He claimed these attacks as his own handiwork.

He was guilty of some of the most heinous crimes and did deserve to be summarily executed.

Comment Ugh! (Score 1) 7

Looks slightly better, but then you look a lil closer and you see that it is even more broken than the old layout. Why do I get Edit/Delete JE links for everyone's journal entries? Why are these links coming up as nasty-assed text links instead of a small icon? Why does the topic icon obscure part of the JE? Why do I have to scroll all the way down the page to find the "Write in journal" link?

Bah! It's like putting lipstick on a pig.

I thought it was just another spammy article that made its way onto the Slashdot front page. I'm especially wary of "anonymous" contributions here - I wouldn't be surprised if this wasn't submitted by Connectify just to get traffic and once they got anough traffic, swap out the original article for some more ads. 8^/

The idea is to make you believe that someone is registering domains similar to ones you already own, then offer you the "opportunity" to register them yourself at an inflated fee. If you do nothing, no domains get registered. All they want is for you to believe that someone is planning to squat on your names so you will buy them. Ignore them. Tell them to FOAD. But never believe that they are in any way, shape or form genuine about anything they say. No (legitimate) registrar will contact you to let you know that someone is registering a name similar to your own. None. They all operate in a reactive manner - they will only act *if* a rights holder notices and decides to take action. They never act proactively.
