id say its probably a bit low and also doesnt cover people like me.
the girlfriend pays for the broadcast part of the bill and we split the internet part because i dont watch cable tv. we have one converter which is in her office and i only make use is online/OTA.
because of her insistence on having the broadcast service, i cant be counted as a cord-cutter.... now think for a moment how many people are in my situation? how many kids are in households that only touch the TV for their game console and/or media center and never watch the broadcast side from their provider? there is actually a lot of them out there and none of them get counted as cord-cutters.
i did not read this very stupid response to a long article. but from the fact that it was already hidden, i take it you said some stupid things, and then were slammed on quite a bit while others made some comments that were either smart or funny.
well done, you must feel.... well im not really sure you feel anything at all so...whatever....
while its true that schools in fact are looking for more and more tuition, it is not a completely different issue. they are tied together and to try and separate them from eachother merely re-enforces the comment that jeff lead with.
you cannot simply ignore the fact that that what bob said is true, no more than you can just ignore the parts about *WHY* bobs simplistic statement, while being purposefully misleading, is still true.
if, in shouting so loud you create a problem for a company doing business, or annoy neighbors because of the volume or exceed any number of ordinances that limit the max decibels in a given area, then yes...shouting *can* be illegal just like a sit-in.
and 1000 people trying to get into walmart at black friday opening is not the same as 1000 people showing up and blocking the door so no one else can get in.... and you know it.... there is a huge difference and you are being disingenuous by trying to use that analogy.
while i agree that ddos can be used as a form of protest, but not legal in the same manner as sit ins and spouting your preferred rhetoric at 150dB at midnight from your window can also not be legal.
while i agree 100% that jailing someone over insulting tweets is not only bad, but incredibly stupid, i think without knowing what the actual insulting content is means we are missing a large part of the picture.
neither should be punishable by jail time (especially two years) but there is a large difference between:
the emir is a blathering idiot who does not know the first thing about running his country
and the emir is a stupid poopy-head that smells like bad feta cheese
after all, if it were in this country, i could be punished (civilly at least) for going on a complete rant denigrating people if in fact, they do not actually smell of rancid feta cheese.
again with the chasing of your own tail. if you make it available for a reasonable price, people will pay for it.
if you refuse to make it available or even refuse to make it available at a reasonable price, people will find a way to get it in a format they want it in. its very very simple...
