coming from an anti vaxxer I take that as a compliment. fuckwits like yourself need to be put on an island that is fenced off from the rest of humanity where you are free to get yourselves killed by whatever method you choose. Arseholes like you get innocent people killed when mixed in with society.

what the fuck are you on about. You still hve those freedoms in Australia. What you don't have is the right to claim you are a medical practitioner and provide advise to people that goes completely against those qualifications. If you want to support Anti Vaxxers that is fine, but don't try and claim you are doing it as a doctor or Nurse etc. Doctors, Nurses, midwives etc have a duty of care and telling people to not get vaccinations is in breach of that duty of care.

The serious injustice is what is done to those that seek a licensed medical practitioner only to receive advise that goes against medical ethics and science. To get their licenses they went through training and education, they have chosen to ignore that education so I don't believe permanent cancelation/suspension is an injustice, they are risking the lives of people who have come to them for help and advise and are therefore in breach of the basic tenets of their profession and hence should be stripped of any qualifications that allow them to practise that profession..

the spokeswoman for the Australian College of Midwives, worries the crackdown may push people with anti-vaccination views further underground

good, they have no right to be practising medicine, fuckwits like those should be dead and buried like those that suffer under their idiotic advise.

Comment Re:He's also charged with money laundering. (Score 2) 75

have to disagree on the money laundering part. The creation of money laundering laws was pretty much essential to prevent organised crime from hiding ill gotten gains by pumping them through shop fronts, casinos and international exchanges and then labelling their proceeds of crime as legitimate profits or winnings. Casinos, banks etc were more than happy to be complicit in these transactions as they got a healthy cut, you can't just ask nicely for them to not do this.

Not sure I see the need for reinvention here. TV is not about the newest coolest gadgets every month, it is about entertainment, the user interface makes for a tiny fraction of the time someone spends with their TV. Netflix as well as various TV boxes have reinvented the VCR about as much as is required at this point. Portable media players, Smart Phones and tablets needed reinvention, you could make the most awesome perfect interface for a TV and it still won't be (or shouldn't be) the primary selling point.

I have no problems with him releasing information when he gets it. What he is doing is collecting and hording the information in order to use it for his own benefit and political agenda rather than trying to ensure people are informed. That stinks and is exactly the sort of dirty act Clinton or Trump would do. When you sink to their level you are as bad as they are.

Both candidates are corrupt scum. BUT, Assange's actions in this are deployable, he has gone from someone fighting for open and honest government to someone that is using information he has access too in a manner to influence an election. timing the releases of information to the political happenings in order to influence people makes him no better than those he is supposedly against, actually it probably makes him worse as he "was" supposedly fighting for something better.

Full redundancy does not provide 5 9's, it takes a lot more than that, going from 4 9's to 5 9's is an insanely expensive task for just specific infrastructure, to do it for an entire network of a large enterprise would make a serious dent in Apples bank balance for very little return.

banking/financial services don't/shouldn't have the right to discriminate based on political views and certainly should not be using their power to influence such a thing, that is actually far more scary than the government doing it. Not sure about the UK but many countries require banks to not discriminate based on anything other than financial ability to service debt, operate the account legally etc.
