It's all of that, yes. But it's also:
* cost of living/price of housing per foot
* food costs are insane
* the culture is hostile to child rearing (even eg. Facebook offer bereavement leave and adoption assistance... but no on-premises childcare? That's standard for many large companies throughout the country.)
* the tax rate is obscene
* the tech work culture is extremely ageist, and anyone over 30 is going to encounter it
* the SF area IT culture actively encourages career instability (which is problematic if you'd ever like to buy a house).
You can make half as much in another locale and have twice the quality of living, if not more, in many other metro areas in the US, working in IT... if you're going to the bay area, you're likely in it to make a mark and a name, not to raise a family.
None will come to a common ground, there will be no trades or bargaining. It will be either you go along with me or you can just f---off. Lots of luck for a united people.
That describes every president at least during my adult life.
a release in 120 days is immediate (those days are to begin a transition to post-prision life, not punishment)
I am certain that there are many private citizens and organizations that are willing to help Chelsea Manning transition to private life outside of the prison system and can do so better and more humanely than the prison system can. I am sure many people would be willing to donate to such a cause. If a reputable private organization gathering funds for that cause emerges, I will contribute Bitcoin immediately to help out.
And the government wonders why there's a fake news problem?
They don't, of course, but good post.
It's Free Software ("Open Source"). After a project becomes a GNU project (or an IBM project, or a Microsoft project, or whatever), the license allows GNU to continue working on the project whether the original maintainer likes it or not. That's not abusive.
The original maintainer can quit working with GNU, the original maintainer can keep working on the original branch of the software, both sides can claim they are the original and the other is the fork, and there's nothing wrong with any of that. In fact it's beautiful and wonderful and helps us all.
Some they have released (the code was written in Russian, using Russian idioms that non-native speakers are not likely to use)
This is, at best, evidence that Russians were involved in the hacks, not that Russia was behind the hacks.
Given that the current administration is transparently using the situation to undermine the incoming president and deflect attention from the failings in their own party, they have zero credibility until they provide some real evidence.
Petulant? Between Obama and Trump, you tell me who fits that description.
I know this one! It's the one that's having a temper tantrum and picking a fight with Russia because their party lost the election.
Oh, wait a second, I see know that you are simply a shmuck that doesn't have any evidence or reason to disbelieve the police, and simply state that something the government said must be false without any evidence, merely because you don't like that it contradicts your own desires.
The government is claiming that Russia was behind the hacks with no evidence themselves, if you haven't noticed.

So medium is now a small?
No, they've regressed to the mean.
