Well I guess we owe a great big "thank you" to all those heirs of assassinated Nigerian warlords. By spamming us with their requests to take thier money, they were actually shielding us from the NSA's email dragnet.
You've got to be kidding. Look kid, I'll give you the benefit of the doubt that you might actually be OOTB. I happen to be one of the guys who punches the "report" button after about 90% of his posts. If you read a bunch of them, they all start to sound the same. If it's not some attack that has nothing to do with the article it's posted on, it boils down to bla bla Google sucks, bla bla Mike won't tell me what his stance is bla bla bla. It's tiresome and childish, and many of us are just tired of it. On occasion he has managed to put something out there that's at least thought provoking, and in those cases, I swallow my pride and hit "insightful." He has an opinion or two about taxing the hell out of what he calls "unearned income" (from patent/copyright trolling, etc) that I can certainly agree with, but that's about it.
No one here has ever censured him, nor have they CENSORED him, for that matter. Every single one of his diatribes has always been and continues to be exactly ONE CLICK AWAY, so if that's your thing, go read them. Despite being behind a mouse click, his posts still manage to generate a series of responses that take his points head on, so I challenge you to read those too.
It takes many people clicking "report" to make a post hidden. It shouldn't take a rocket scientist to figure out why it's always him.
"We've Learned Enough?" Yes, if you define "enough" by Clapper's dictionary. Something tells me that statement, like so many of Clapper's, won't stand up to scrutiny. So far the leaks seem very deliberately timed to expose abuses of the Constitution without creating an international panic. My guess is, the process of bringing all the dirt to light is just getting started.
No one other than Ed Snowden and his trusted inner circle has any idea how much dirt he got his hands on. And that's what's making the news so interesting lately--the NSA has no idea either, so the minute they try to put a positive spin on the latest rumor, out comes another leak to debunk it.
The chaos we're seeing in Washington right now is all well and good, but I predict it will pick up steam the closer we get to Election Day.
I'm pretty sure all those passengers already knew what airline they were flying, and have their boarding passes to prove it. No worries though, they'll get compensation for their inconvenience in the form of free tickets.
Since this is evidently their standard operating procedure, you'd think they would keep giant tarps on hand to throw over the wreckage of their planes. That way they can literally cover up accidents, without damaging the paint job.
This kid is an idiot, but I blame everyone who called the police for the brouhaha.
Dear NSA: Here's a tip for you that should save you a ton of money and labor. You don't need to scoop up tons of data on all of us because apparently there are millions of armchair terrorism experts on Twitter who seem perfectly happy to do the work for you. I would assume the "threats" they are uncovering are just as likely as the ones you're uncovering in your massive dragnet.
"As for video's of games, watching a vid of a game is not the same as playing the game, but it sure does make you want to try them."
Exactly. People post their gameplay because they LIKE THE GAME, and they want to show off the cool things they can do. How can anyone see this as anything other than free advertising? I bought Guild Wars 2 based on an Angry Joe video that I bumped into completely by accident. He was so positive about it, I bought it right away.
I'm all for modernizing the guidelines a bit, because times change. I think to a certain extent, networks are recognizing that. You would never have seen shows like Modern Family, Will and Grace, or Two Broke Girls in the 70's.
And no, you don't need obscenity to have a successful show. I don't think there's been a single episode of Big Bang Theory where Sheldon didn't use the word "coitus" at least once, and it's funny every time.
What, they didn't have dictionaries where you went to school?
See the problem here is that we seem to be living in a culture where it's okay to alter the meaning of words to suit nefarious purposes, like trying to make trumped up charges stick. Copying DVD's or what have you is "stealing," pointing out that our government is violating the Constitution is "espionage." Pretty soon, disagreeing with moronic posts like yours is "hate speech"?
Me neither, but I still predict this bill will die. If you have the means to set up shell companies to hide behind, you can afford to make contributions to certain political campaigns, too. A small start-up that's just trying to make an honest buck or two doesn't often have that luxury.
Actually, I have to agree with her on that point. Downloaders ARE the worst kind of thieves imaginable: they download all day and all night, and despite all of their efforts, not one single title has ever gone missing.
