"Report" is all that needs done for this feeble-minded poster
I am so sick of OOTB poisoning every thread on this site that I've taken to not even reading, much less responding, to his non-sensical rants. I just hit the "Report" button. He has more than earned it.
What makes the whole situation even more annoying is that people keep responding to him, like it's gonna make any difference whatsoever. All you're doing is giving him the attention he so clearly and desperately craves and can't get anywhere else.
So, as of today I'm going to start hitting "Report" on everyone who responds to him. It's become clear that just reporting OOTB won't stop him because he's getting what he wants: attention. I'm aiming to cut off that attention.
I have some experience with Wikipedia editors and it left a bad taste in my mouth. A while back I was involved in a Linux distro and I prepared a Wikipedia page about it. A short one, just a few paragraphs. It was entirely 100% true and correct, not promotional in tone (just descriptive) and fully cited.
A few weeks later the page was deleted because one of the editors saw posts from me on that distros forum. You see, I used the same username on both places because I wasn't hiding that I had involvement with the distro. That was the only reason.
I tried to "appeal" but it all fell on deaf ears. I could barely get anyone there to even respond, much less help. A few weeks or months (not really sure) someone else made another page for the distro that was worded differently but had almost exactly the same content (and citations) for that matter. And that one was a-okay.
At that point I let the matter drop, but I do recall feeling pretty pissed off and powerless at the time.
Not sure there's really a point here, just sharing my experience.

while you can fantasize all you want
Why, thank you. I think I shall.

I won't even bother to reply to the rest of your screed. I choose to go have fun.
PS: the boat I am on its a nice, little, perfectly adequate sailboat. Yours, however, looks to be a rusty old oil tanker thats been heading toward an iceberg for a long time and won't change course. Good luck with that!
Really, there are no good options, and third parties don't have a chance
I really hate this attitude, the equivalent of which is saving, "if you vote for a third party you are wasting your vote." I say NO -- if you are voting either Democrat or Republican it is YOU who is wasting your vote since both parties are essentially the same and are only looking to protect themselves.
It is the classic self fulfilling prophecy.
If it weren't for attitudes like yours third parties would have a chance.
Here's a thought: compare your moronic post that was reported into invisibility against the one that was voted repeatedly as Insightful several posts above.
It's the same thing I've said to you over and over and you can't get it through your thick skull: Google et. al. can't put anyone in jail or "murder" them "legally". That's the EXACT difference in what they're doing with your data compared to the gov't.
... if PJ feels she has no privacy who does she post everything on a web page ?
Well. Since you've decided to post to TD, I'm sure you don't mind if we have some info about you. Please answer the following questions:
- What your real name?
- What your address?
- Who is your employer?
- What are your parent's names?
- When is the last time your received (or gave, whatever) a blowjob?
- How often do you masturbate?
Since you're posting to a web page you clearly don't believe you're entitled to any privacy. Therefore, you should have no problem answering those questions.
