That's what happens when you are actually DOING something instead of sitting on your ass behind a desk counting the number of holes in your ceiling (like this professor).
You don't think that's being a bit unfair? This guy's an archaeologist who knows the value of historical sites. They give us a ton of insight into where we've been and thus where we're going. I take the same pragmatic view of the landing site as you - the first footprint has been destroyed already, etc. etc. - but let's not turn this into an ad hominem fight.
Thing is, a lot of slashdotters have the "luxury" of ignoring this fact. I cut my web app teeth working for a public university, so this stuff has been seriously ingrained into our policies. We still have a ton of legacy stuff to bring into the 21st century, but I don't know of a shop on campus that thinks tables are an okay way to do layout. And when you do use them, you use them with properly scoped <th>s, etc.
I wish more people did work for the government or maybe accessibility-related NGOs. It was a good way to go - learn how to do it the "hard" way, and the "easy" way looks awful.
Speaking of axes to grind, until you can produce evidence, the answer to all your questions may as well be "no." Seriously, how is this modded Informative or Insightful? There's not a single link to evidence for these claims. In a quick Google search, I found nothing about Yee being picked up for being a john - though lots to suggest he has fought against prostitution for years - and the only thing about shoplifting was this article referencing a 1992 incident that appears to have been a big, dumb mistake.
Mods, honestly, why did you mod this up? Do you know something I don't?
Doesn't seem too likely. TFA was written "Yesterday," and it likely references this article, which was written March 30.
Sorry to disappoint.
it's probably time to put some ramen on your Visa and start making stuff up for your LinkedIn page.
Can anyone explain what the hell this means?
I gotta say this - I'm tired of you and people like you putting logout links in your signature. It's not funny. It's not a moron test. It's rude, and you're an ass hole for thinking it's a good idea.
For the record, this isn't personal revenge: I've never been caught by something like this. But you're a dick, and you need to be reprimanded by the community - modded down on every post until you shape up.
No amount of genius can overcome a preoccupation with detail.
