Comment Re:Scottish independence (Score 2) 488

Without England, Scotland has nothing to offer the EU except liability.

Scotland is small ,but it has a higher per capita GDP than England, or the entire UK for that matter -- if you count North Sea energy. Scotland as an independent country would be the twelfth largest economy in Europe and almost exactly in the middle of the pack for size in the EU.

Now logically speaking Scottish independence from an independent UK does not necessarily equate to EU membership. Scots could choose independence from the UK on the basis that union with a UK that is not in the EU is not as attractive as union with a UK that is in the EU.

Yes. And you will notice that all of them without fail are companies where "the boss" is either the founder of the company, the direct heir of the founder or he actually IS the company, plus maybe a worker or two, but he himself is very much hands-on with the actual product and not some C-Level-title floating aloof above the peasants working for him.

That's why I try to do business with smaller companies rather than corporations when I can. They DO usually care about their name and reputation.

This is pretty much the point. There is a huge difference between trying to incite people to commit violence against people and stating an opinion. The question is whether that difference will be considered. "Kill all infidels!" must not be on the same level as "I disagree with what you said and here is why I think you're wrong".

Judging by the development in other social media I cannot say with good faith that I can trust this to be the case.

Comment Re:Real Question: Consensual or Non-Consensual? (Score 1) 634

True, but in the end, the difference remains. When it's simply prostitution, what matters is money changes hands and one person, the person giving the money, will have his or her satisfaction. The satisfaction of the person receiving the money does not enter the equation. If anything, it's a bonus.

In a role play situation, the key element is that the recipient of the money is more interested in personal satisfaction than the monetary compensation.
