The summary is fine. Pepe the Frog is a beloved meme, check. Pepe has been recently adopted by the far right, check. The only thing wrong is the headline, which can easily be misread as meaning the ADL has made a blanket "All uses of Pepe are examples of Hate".

The biggest thing that's wrong is... well, Slashdot's readers. Give them something you can easily misunderstand, and they'll launch half cocked, often with an interpretation even more stupid than the obvious misinterpretation.

And, BTW, to the OP of this thread: the ADL is one of the oldest surviving and famous groups that fights anti-semitism. It's hardly obscure, and a quick Google search would have given you the answer.

That is exactly how I intended it to work. >:-)

And exactly my current attitude. I've conserved quite a bit for my life, it makes sense to do so since energy costs money and a penny saved is a penny earned. If this is such a dire emergency- then it's time for those gulfstream liberals to stop flying.

More like- if the drought is real, then no bathing should be justified under any circumstances. Bathing can only be justified if the drought is false (that is, if we have the water necessary to bathe).

In other words, more a matter of conservation in time of emergency. If the emergency does not exist, then continue as normal.

In Android at least, only one application can be running at the same time (no background processing unless you program a service for your app)

Bollocks.

And the rest of what you say has nothing to do with Android or ChromeOS. You can have access to root in both. Android devices generally have it disabled but it can be enabled - of course, even CyanogenMod discourages root access these days, as it shouldn't be necessary. ChromeOS? Off by default, but every ChromeBook let's you reconfigure ChromeOS to allow root if you desperately want it. As for "Spyware", it's entirely up to you whether you use Google's services or not.

And none of your objections have anything to do with the original point. You're complaining about the UI disabling certain features. The underlying operating system has those features. And, frankly, easy access to root was something that Windows 95 gave you by default that NT made a little harder to get...
