Comment Re: America hates Hillary Clinton (Score 1) 1069

The US does not hold a nationwide popular presidential election. Period. Each state chooses its Electors as it pleases. It just happens that right now all the states are popularly electing their Electors. If even one state did it differently, propagandists would not get away with trotting out this mythical nationwide popular vote.

Comment Re: There was no sign (Score 1) 130

Your problem is use of the house/doorway metaphor where it does not fit. Even if you could make a case (which I'll not address here) that allowing someone to log into a server does not automatically grant the right to download files to which they have been given read access, you certainly cannot make such a case for an FTP server, which is dedicated to allowing downloads and/or uploads of accessible files. The fact of its being an FTP server that allows the user access counts as the "Please download" sign.
