If it's so easy to tell, electronically that these images are the same, even if their graphic signatures are different, and they are from different urls.. perhaps you could write a program that can crawl the internet for them, and alert you when new ones arrive, and have a one click request to remove... I'm sure there will be no chance of other images being detected in error at all.
Like the blackout... just put a notice up saying, "The government is using our data to spy on you." With a details page stating that they can't tell you how much, because they aren't allowed, then link to articles regarding the Snowden links.
I think that working around CAs and allow self-signing via DNSSec is probably the first step... the biggest points keeping out broader SSH are shared hosting (multiple IPs, one IP), and the CAs, which if compromised, may as well be public.
One thing I thought was funny, in an episode of Vegas, the Sheriff had the FBI agents' vehicle towed for illegally parking. It would seem to me, that booting, and towing said vehicles would be a natural step.
Today congressman Alan Grayson has disappeared... when the DoJ was asked if they were responsible, they stated that they cannot comment on the existence or non-existence of an investigation surrounding the congressman that may, or may not be related to the PATRIOT Act.
I'm just curious if this means that the U.S. will go on the next special 301 report... I mean, the U.S. government is actively acting against it's trade interests. Bad U.S. Government... I think it's important that we (the U.S.) enact trade sanctions against this anti-trade regime immediately.
Though I agree with many of your sentiments.. not having government employees regulate industries they worked in would be difficult... You don't ever want a doctor as head of the FDA? Though, there is a lot of cronyism, I think what you propose would have a lot of unintended consequences.
Regarding banking, there are a lot of efforts to restore post great depression banking legislation that worked pretty well for over 40 years, until deregulation started in the late 70's and early 80's.
I'd like to see huge swaths of the central government cut myself. As to any amendments to the constitution, it would be nearly impossible these days... Far easier to pass dismissive legislation and have the courts uphold it.
FISA judges are picked by the Chief Justice, but that pool of judges are already approved Federal Court judges... they are given an "additional" assignment of hearing FISA cases.
I think the trouble is that the FISA courts should probably have been established similar to other "district" courts but with a more narrow purpose. Unfortunately they don't work like a typical Article 3 court.
I think part of it is being able to talk in an adult context like real people. Being able to say "fuck" is part of that, but not the whole.
The cable networks are working for better, original content. The TV networks are far more about the latest low-cost reality TV series with 20+ minutes of commercials per hour of programming, not producing great shows. Game of Thrones, Dexter and Breaking Bad wouldn't take much change at all to be on broadcast TV, certainly not enough to ruin said shows.
Hell, the same studios make a lot of the cable shows that are great, as make shows for broadcast TV... guess what, broadcast TV doesn't want an awesome show that will cost a couple million an episode for acting, when they can come up with yet another reality or contest show where the bulk of the people on the show are unpaid. "You mean we can pay one celebrity, and everyone else on screen gets zip, then we can pay out the winner six figures and call it good? F***ing awesome!"
Considering a topic of discussion is that the FISC (court) actually made a decision that the Gov't violated the 4th Amendment already? Oh, how about targeting journalists? (1st Amendment).
Even just sticking to the 4th Amendment's use of the term "unreasonable" ... being a societal standard, you would be hard pressed to get half the world (because they aren't just looking at domestic emails) to agree that looking into every email and phone call is anything but "unreasonable" ... I doubt even half the U.S. would find it reasonable.
I know this is getting flagged as funny.. but given the number of prisoners at Gitmo for over a decade now without a trial, I'd say it's leaning closer to insightful. Not to mention the actions of our government are clearly heading in this direction.
Here's a relevant question... how is this different from forcing someone to open a wall safe? I don't get why it's being treated any differently... Can they require someone to open a wall safe? If yes, same for decryption... If they can't require someone to open it, but can crack it... same rules... sorry it's got a tougher lock, so sad.
Netflix actually is a Paywall... however, what netflix offers isn't a regurgitation of facts that are widely available, distributed and free elsewhere, which is why newspaper paywalls simply don't work.
In this case, it's a service that offers video material, in an all-you-can-watch fashion, and for a reasonable price. They're funding new/original content, and unlike Hulu and Hulu Prime isn't littered with increasing ads.
I was actually a big fan of Hulu early on, when there were maybe 1-2 ads per show... now it's almost as bad as watching on broadcast tv... I cut the cord a few years ago, and prefer to watch tv without the ads. The experience is much better.
Yes.. 1 email address or a thousand is a lot less than say the banking industry has been fined for several times, with nobody serving jail time.
It's an email address... someone knowing your email is a lot different than say a print publication putting out the physical addresses targeting a segment of the population... Oh yeah.. no fines, no imprisonment there...
There is a scale to a crime... What is the harm done in people knowing an email address?
