Submission + - Disappearing stuff from the internet (nakedcapitalism.com) 1

inode_buddha writes: Its well-known that removing something from the internet is nearly impossible, like taking the pee out of the pool. That said, somebody or something is doing a credible job of trying lately. First there was the UCDavis pepper-spray video. Now its a Bernie Sanders ad. Nobody seems to know who or why but it was on the net for a few hours and it is rapdly being pulled and scrubbed. Any one got ideas?

I'd say that's a max. Class representatives Lieff Cabraser thankfully has a history of this kind of defendant-friendly incompetence. Note their role in the settlement in the California Hospital Price Gouging case, where the class received about $1,000 apiece in what should have also involved criminal charges.

Black people in the US can never transcend abuse, due to what Paul Mooney termed "the nigger wake up call," which is the observation that no matter what an African American achieves in America, they can still be treated "like a nigger," if the system wants to do so.

Martha Stewart was convicted of bullshit charges and Bernie Madoff only got busted because he ripped off people richer than him.

Ah, the "Well, you should have bought supported hardware" response. You can put that next to the "Well, why don't you code it yourself?" response in the library of catch-all catty answers to any criticism of OSS.

Sure, but your point here appears to boil down to, "Well, why doesn't CyanogenMod code it for me?" You know, if CM is so great and everything.

Kind of a "catty calling the cattle black" situation, if you ask me.
