I think it would be better to allow lobbyists to ask their favourite politicians for the legislation they want in return for a campaign donation, much as they already do, but instead of being able to donate directly, the funds go into a pool that's shared out equally to all politicians running for office. That would give all politicians equal standing, no matter what their platforms.
Now: "Welcome to Sputnik, the [redacted] search engine that won't link to [redacted], [redacted] porn, or other such nastiness." Six months later: "Why in the world is Sputnik failing so miserably?" (The redacted words are censored, torrents, and gay, in that order.)
Oh, I get it. Hey, ootb! I'ma do you a favour.
Like children? Then you'll love these stories, images, and movies. Get them fast before the law gets me!
There ya go. I just got Techdirt shut down so you don't have to read anything Mike Masnick has to say here ever again. Or you could just leave and do the online world a favour.
Yes, but without the data roaming, the authorities can't just send me a package and track where it's going, they have to present my network provider with a valid warrant, thus increasing the level of difficulty in tracking me.
Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong because I don't have a Twitter account, but doesn't tagging a tweet with @easyJet basically put it directly into their feed just the same as sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org puts it directly into your inbox (or spam filter)?
From Wikipedia: easyJet plc (styled as easyJet; LSE: EZJ) is a British airline carrier based at London Luton Airport. It is the largest airline of the United Kingdom.
From a page about the Human Rights Act 1998: 1. Right to life
2. Protection from torture and mistreatment
3. Right to liberty and security
4. Protection from slavery and forced labour
5. Right to a fair trial
6. No punishment without law
7. Respect for your private and family life
8. Freedom of thought, belief and religion
9. Freedom of expression
10. Freedom of assembly and association
11. Right to marry
12. Protection from discrimination
13. Protection of property
14. Right to education
15. Right to free elections
Number nine in the list above covers what the guy did by taking to Twitter, and because easyJet is a UK company, they're totally bound by it.
On a side note, the Tories are still wanting to scrap the Human Rights Act, and I suspect number four in the above list is the reason. All that stuff about it stopping them getting Abu Hamza out of the country was a false flag.
"Criminals seeking to hide their identity online will often use fictitious e-mail addresses." Well, yes, but the same is true of people with perfectly legitimate reasons to be anonymous, or those who don't want spam.
Nope, not me. I just create a throwaway on Mailinator. :D
I'm doing my part, I didn't even bother to pirate the game.
Now watch EA claim that only proves the effectiveness of the digital restrictions malware on Sim City, conveniently 'forgetting' the fact that pirates can rip the DRM off anything within days if it's good enough to put the effort into doing so. Swing and a miss, EA. Swing and a miss.
Re: Re: Re: Re: To be blunt, why should they care?
You get the distinct impression the developers ran out of time and hastily threw the most stable beta release they had out the door.
At least that shows EA are willing to learn from other companies. Like Bethsoft...
