Comment Re: Less politics (Score -1, Flamebait) 110

You've become such a far left schill that you don't even realize just how stupid you sound. Being a CEO does not negate one's rights on their own time with their own money. You just don't like his stance and since you're not intelligent enough nor tolerant enough to address the topics in open civilized debate you resort to name calling, banning and censoring.

I'm done with you. You've always been a fucking joke Bruce but now you're a parody of the open source "freedom" advocate you once were.

It falls under participation in politics. Forcing out CEOs who publicly support policies repugnant to the organizations own membership and supporters is good politics. You have freedom of speech, but we have freedom to decline to be associated with you and your speech.

So Mozilla is a safe space? Or is it an echo chamber? Please help me, I can't keep up with the hypocrisy.

Android is shit. Complete and total garbage. You're either stuck with insecure software with it or stuck with Google spyware.

iOS is at least secure but you're stuck in a walled fucking garden with Apple spying on you instead.

Just give me something with the apps I want, without the spying and with security updates, please for the love of God.

It's hard to say it's unregulated.

First of all, certain things are required on the packaging. Those are regulations.

The ingredients list is one of those things. It's supposed to reflect what is inside. If it doesn't, that's fraud.

If you want to ensure that every container accurately reflects its ingredients, you'll have to have FDA inspectors present at every production facility, just like USDA inspectors are present at every slaughterhouse.

You'll be sure there's aloe in the aloe gel. The only problem is, it will cost so much to manufacture that only megacorps will be able to sell any. Small businesses will be shut out. And the products will probably cost twice as much.

What we need are more studies like these, to catch the fraudsters-- not more regulations.
