I have a 40 year old dildo with old-school vibrator tech. Top that sonny.
Impressive! I only bought my Yoda doll in late 1980.
When was slashdot not for the lulz? Nerdbait + random quirky interest stories was always the formula. The quirky story selection left with CmdrTaco (heard the tragic news on the radio this morning, sad for one so young and gifted).
Just because there is more noise, and the ratio to the amount of signal has changed, does not mean that there is less signal. Hackers always were a rare breed. They still are.
it already does, so I'm not sure what you're arguing here.
No, it doesn't. Read more carefully, including adjectives, and I think you'll get it.
spilled his bong in the pool again...
Which is nice. Made me think "Tank, I need a pilot program for a V-212 helicopter."
It's 90% of the total vehicle days they included in the study (cars only - they did not mention freight?). And there is no information about the 10% that is not covered is distributed. So there is no information on whether:
* 10% of people could not use EVs.
* 100% of people could not use EVs 10% of the time.
* Somewhere inbetween.
So you are just speculating, yet you are trying to state it as fact. Do you have more information than what was available in the abstract or are you just projected your beliefs onto the story?
You do have a right to stop someone from saying things that a reasonable person would perceive as threatening.
And there's very little that someone hundreds of miles away from you can say over the internet that a reasonable person would perceive as threatening.
Someone in the same room with me, or standing in front of my house, saying "I'm going to punch you in the face for what you said!" is a true threat, the person has the imminent means and opportunity to carry it out. Someone in a different city tweeting "@tom_swiss I'm going to punch you in the face for what you said!" is not a threat. Their arms just aren't that long.
Can somebody tell me why motivation makes a difference?
Because intent matters.
Intent is a very different thing than motive. Motive, in your example is the reason why the first guy planned his murder: for gain, for the lulz, ethnic or religious or political hatred, whatever. The act is still one of deliberate intent, regardless of motive. Your second guy had no intent to kill.
Motive may matter when we turn to the question of how to rehabilitate a criminal. But it can play no rightful role in defining a crime.
