Comment Re:Cross Obamacare (Score 1) 245

Wouldn't the free market just take care of this? You can't really do price gouging if you can get the product at a fraction of the price somewhere else - or are the alternatives not available as widely? "As of September 2015, Daraprim imported directly from GSK UK is available for less than US$7 per tablet" and "On October 22, 2015, Imprimis Pharmaceuticals announced it has made available a formulation of Pyrimethamine and Leucovorin in oral capsules starting as low as $99.00 for a 100 count bottle."

Comment Re:Or, you know, just pay for the fucking movie. (Score 1) 147

Or download the movie from the Internet which is easier, not to mention no more illegal in some countries. No rocket surgery should be needed to lawfully view the DVD you bought in your own home according to the terms of the EULA. If it's needed, the product's quality is inferior and the main argument for buying the thing in the first place is weakened.

Any effect on the genetical probably varies between none to microscopic.

Comment Fake reviews (Score 1) 126

Interesting, how would you prove a review is fake, written with no experience of the product? Even more interesting is the question that is for example audiophile magazines have been known to do fake reviews sometimes (I guess the amount of proven cases is like 1 or something) how does that relate to this case?

Comment Re:BitTorrent Trackers don't infringe copyright (Score 2) 85

Heh, you can block Youtube on exactly the same grounds as you block torrent sites, in fact you have stronger grounds since Google actually hosts the content. I wonder who needs to make the complaint to get a site blocked. Getting Youtube blocked would raise awaresness for sure.
