I hope thought that he wins. Also DOTCOM is a dumb ass for asking for so little. If he was suing somebody in America he would be asking for 100-1000 times actual damage. So in his case asking for the paltry sum near actual cost and damages is just plain bad legal strategy.
Thinking that virtual reality is not really reality and that by doing something that could not possibly cause any harm to anyone to express your frustration is OK and legal.
I mean where do they get these ideas. That it is OK to be upset or even GOD FORBID angry because someone treated you unpleasantly.
Next time you just need to write in your diary is only the most vague terms that people are upsetting you and that you are sad by this, otherwise you will be upset by the amount of time you spend in jail.
Much easier to ask for forgiveness than permission
I am so sad that more people are just not that upset by all these revelations. Why is there not protests in the streets all over the world about this but they feel the world should stop because one dumb ass police officer arrested a person of race in a questionable situation.
The NSA (aka Big Brother) is aware of this. They know that if they can feed enough BS to obfuscate the whole situation to the American people it will all just go away, in time.
We are fools to believe that the greatest monopoly ever allowed and then re-allowed (by consolidation and mergers) by government was without agreements that the government found favorable.
AT&T is and always will be to some extent an extension of the pursuit to monitor each individual by entities that allowed it to act as it did and does. AT&T is the largest phone, cell service provider not because it is the best but because it is the foundation for those that control access to services and data bandwidth. And to provide to the government the access needed to do what the government wants to do in the name of power, and secondarily control. AT&T gets the room to re-consolidate and the government gets the ability via a near universal access to what they want.
Thanks. I really wanted to provide the same type of standard modern definition. Decimate means f**k all else: To destroy or utterly remove from existence. To in other words affect to the point that a thing or person is counted as barely surviving.
Right! But even if they ask you still don't spell it out in too much detail. You give them enough detail to make them understand how much work you did. Unless of course you are trying to impress them with all the hard work it took.
Re: Snowden "was bothered by technology companies"
Been meaning to comment on an OOTB rant for a while but it always seemed pointless, but this time I just decided to do it.
OOTB you confuse me. You hate corporations so much and wear your tin-foil hat with a strange pride. Yet you rant against the person that is exposing a lot of the corporations cooperation with the government.
You have every right to speak your mind!! And I have never once voted your posts to be hidden as everyone should see how an insane person can make articulate arguments to the world with inarticulate information.
But really your mind seems to be a place of conflicting rants and one of very little substance.
I can see that this can viewed as trying to hide stuff and it more than likely has some of that going on. But really it is SOP for the letter orgs. I bet if you looked at the internal documents from any of them, FBI, CIA, NSA, NASA, DOE, DOI, and any other one you can think of they would pretty much read close to the above documents.
They don't want oversight. They don't like oversight. They like to do what they think they need to do and only subject themselves to providing the overseers with the legally required information. And not one single thing more.
And as much as I hate to admit it, that is actually logical. The people in Congress are largely elected based on some knowledge and a lot of personality. So 90% of time they really don't know what the heck they are looking at.
For example: Let's say you are computer tech. You fix a customer's computer. Do you explain to them all the steps you had to do to remove the 5000 pieces of spyware and viruses from there computer and why it was causing all the issues they were seeing? Or do you give them the simple break down. "Everything is fixed and your computer is running great now."
As bad as American is at math this is not about math but laziness. The NSA knows very few people will actually look in to the BS they are spouting because they are just to lazy to actually do some simple research.
