I am glad that you are "thinking" and feeling confident. Of course, the people actually in place to Know those things have not agreed with your position. In fact, in a few cases they have even come out on the negative.
And then you go on to quickly add "but there was nothing really important in the leaks anyhow, so its not like Assange is a Real whistleblower anyhow, despite all these things i think he was somehow responsible for."
Weird mixed message, and i have been seeing it a lot.
"Leaks Kill Babies And Puppies!"
"Leaks Contain Nothing Of Any Interest! Its Not Like Real News"
Anonymous Coward is a term applied within some online communities to describe users who post without a screen name; it is a dummy name attributed to anonymous posts used by some weblogs that allow posting by people without registering for accounts.
The practice, which had its roots in BBS and USENET culture, was made especially popular on Slashdot, where the mildly derogatory term is meant to chide anonymous contributors into logging in. Some weblog engines such as Scoop use the term "Anonymous Hero" instead.
Variations on the name "Anonymous Coward" are also sometimes used by trolls to mock the dummy name and/or confuse other users into thinking that they are posting as Anonymous Coward.
Gee, its like you are taking a common internet phenomenon and twisting and squirming your hardest until you can use it as a half-witted attack against someone you have decided not to like. Should i applaud your acting ability in this role as "anonymous fool" or simply call you dumb and walk away?
Anyone who disagrees with me is a child!
They Must be living in mommies house, because grownups like Me! Me! Me~! all know that I am totally smart and right.
Keep the comedy flowing, anonymous coward who also also calls people "slimeballs" when they protest a lying political and claims this entire article is fabrication (but at the time of this post, has not replied to the evidence of how wrong they are)
your "direct experience", lets hear it.
Who stole. Literally stole, not invented separately, not had a competing product on the market that was eventually argued to sorta kinda infringe on some level, but stole. Who stole what patent and why, and how was it resolved?
Without details "direct experience" is a claim that anyone can throw out. sound and fury, but no substance.
You make it sound like making minor changes in the shape of next-year's truck involved tearing down the factory or replacing all the equipment. Car and truck plants around the world manage to do a changeover, many of them yearly, without somehow selling off "the tooling" to a knockoff company.
So instead of a raging legal fight across borders and continents, with millions in lawyer fees across years, we have a few hours overall of work by a salaried manager (Mr Harborn) and one or two sketch artists, also probably salaried or doing these pieces at no great cost in time or money. This is a success story for everyone but lawyers.
And where is the harm? you have still failed to come through with that.
Ok, some people may believe a rumor for a short time that a celebrity is dead. The source of this rumor will experience a lot of negative notoriety when this is confirmed false. Anyone who repeats it will also have egg on their face for believing the internet without doing minimal fact checking. Tome Cruise is not harmed.
Second example, Someone is spreading false statements. The reactions could be to.. a) overreact like you suggest or b) ignore it. The source full of negative and/or misleading falsehoods will be recognized for being outrageous or at least as unreliable as a tabloid. People who want to believe these rumors will not be swayed one way or another by taking action at the source, making it pointless. Just like your "masnick is a weenie" statement is just noise.
Mike is not somehow harmed.
Welcome to the internet.
People do not always tell the truth here.
Liars eventually get called liars, Other things are recognized as being more useful and therefor rise to the top.
Its money that got Many more cycles through the economy.
That 4 dollars i saved on a purchase did not magically disappear. It went into food from the locally-texan-owned (and taxed) bakery at the corner. It went into my rent. It went into a any number of things, moving around the state economy and being taxed as appropriate.
I Am cycling the money. If there is a short gap on when Rick Perry and his friends get to play with it, too bad for them.
One time, i visited Wikileaks and poked my head through a door marked "Employees Only", and what i saw was amazing!
The entire site was all made of cardboard and plywood and little bits of tape! Sure, they painted a nice site on the front, but if you start wiggling it at the edge you see where the 'roof' starts to flop around. Maybe it is a fake site, and all the residents of the real site are up the hill waiting for Taggart and his posse to whup and holler their way in before blowin' the whole thing down!
That's right, i wasn't doing anything with those rights anyhow.
And if you have nothing to hide, you have nothing to fear!
I wouldn't want a world where the police can't shut down a crack-house without first having to apprehend the owner.
The comparison you are looking for is
"I wouldn't want a world where the police have to follow due process to enforce the law. I think they should be able to shut down that crack house, my neighbor's house, even my house as long as they promise that they are 'helping the children' or 'fighting terrorists'. I am sure they will never Use all of these powers, right?"
Justice is now decided on the idea that "We are more or less certain you might be part of this group of people and have therefore tried you (not Actually you, simply some person we also think is in the group) in your absence. You are declared guilty due to our choice to compare you with these other people and your inability or lack of notification to choose not to be part of this class"
Some amazing justice there, joe. It is amazing that you are hungering to be a part of it.
rather then a milling output, i would suggest an automated mixer that can accept pre-measured dough components, then tip the completed material onto the pizza tray moving through the line. This could be replaced with a system that retrieves a pre-made dough ball, or even a pick-and-thaw dispenser that thaws par-cooked dough.
For shaping i would suggest a press-style mold. Lock the pizza pan into place on the line, apply pressure with a properly shaped disc to stamp an optimum shape. Automated application of non-stick oil before pressing would help.
Printbed sauce application system would be interesting. Even more if it could handle 2 or 3 input lines, allowing artistic swirls of marinara, alfredo sauce and/or peppery olive oil or pesto. Imagine an evolutionary algorithm slowly developing the perfect flavor! Cheese application might be possible with the same system, though odd pelletizing or compounding might ruin.
A delta-robot with a vac' gripper might be a better choice, allowing rapid placement of items like sliced cheeses, discs of pepperoni and/or sausage. Optional is a low-power CO2 laser and aiming array in conjunction with the feed-tube for the pepperoni, allowing the addition of monogrammed meat product.
Final is a pass-through oven, and i think developments in the pizza industry are pushing these to be smaller and faster all the time..
So.. um.. where was i..
It is good that the judge eventually retracted this demand.
And .torrent = .pizza
All those provisions seem to spell out that Twitter is the one with the license to display (use) any content you give them. There is nothing that says anyone without a connection or business relationship with twitter can freely use your content.
The point is that a huge portion of an interconnected web of systems all tied to a single spot that could be shut down.
Its like never realizing that all of the traffic in your town routes around to a single intersection, and one day a single small fender-bender (or road-cones, the analogy is getting stretched a bit) serves to shut down everything.
And i am certain that the concept of "internet disconnect" came up somewhere.
politically connected manager: We have to find a we to shut down all internet traffic!
reluctant IT tech: well, in theory if you simply shut down This data-switch here, it will shut down all the data flow between here and everywhere, but i don't suggest..
politically connected manager: Brilliant! Throw The Switch!
joe: If you really didn't think it was OK, you would say so. But you don't.
That's right folks, joe has officially stopped reading. You would think this would put a crimp in that career in law, but it is largely built around ignoring statements that you would like to ignore as well.
