"if a couple 'nice' ones got tossed in by mistake, well, they don't lose too much sleep over us 99% getting fucked over, i won't lost too much over a couple rich pukes being sacrificed for the good of 99%.."
It's this kind of thinking that causes the crap you rally against. Being so willing to sacrifice the innocent to get back at the guilty. We must stop terrorists so we put up with sexual harassment at the airports. We want to stop overeating so we must ban all large soda. We have been slighted by the rich so kill them all.
Isn't it this kind of thinking that caused the Dark Ages, the Spanish Inquisition, the Salem Witch Trials, and the Holocaust? Someone must be punished and to hell with the collateral damage.
Why should anyone look up scientific research or get expert opinions on the subject? The Supreme Court says that fining cable channels for fleeting expletives is a violation of the First Amendment. End of story. No need to give the other side equal time. They're wrong and they need to be told in no uncertain terms.
Blue, you are a raving lunatic. I think that's all that needs to be said. Everyone else can easily see the problems in your arguments, and since you're willfully blind to your own flaws, there's no point in me arguing them.
There are plenty of legitimate reasons to leave WiFi open. Sharing the connection with friends without having to worry about remembering the key. Older technology compatibility (don't know if it's just me, but my new access point won't let me use WEP and my old tech won't use WPA). There's also the fact that WEP and WPA can be cracked easily and it's probably better to focus on internal security.
So, you're saying that if this foreign national caused this one incident then we need to start treating all foreign nationals like criminals. Yet if this foreign national didn't do it, then we don't? I don't think that can sound any more stupid.
That's like saying if this person (who happens to be foreign) did it, then you're prejudice against all foreign people, but if he didn't then you're not.
If I was ever asked for a social media password and my answer of "hell no" wasn't the correct answer to a test, I'd be perfectly fine not getting hired there. Granted, I'm a network administrator and a company like that would probably blame me for their inevitable security issues.
Wait, you think that the graph needs to be 99% white space? That 405 at the top left of the graph isn't 405 people, it's 405,000. Extending the graph from 345,000 to 0 would make the change look like nothing at all.
Or is that what you're saying? Comparing it from 405,000 to 0 would make it seem like piracy has done diddly squat to harm jobs.
