Guess who's going to be getting a lot more business headed their way? If tumblr was smart they'd follow Automattic's lead, otherwise they risk losing a fair amount of business, I'd think. I know if I had a small blog, I'd be heading to WordPress.
Late to the party here, I know, but wanted to be one of the "silly" people with a "stupid argument" (nice job there attacking anyone who might disagree with you and painting them as a racist for doing so right from the start, btw, Tim).
So every time a term changes from "socially acceptible" to "offensive to a minority of a minority" anyone who had been using said term, no matter how long they've been using it, needs to be pressured through the government revoking their trademark registration into changing it? And you, Tim, think that's a good policy? Wow. What could go wrong there? But since I think that's a pretty short sighted way to use trademark law and could easily lead to censorship, I must be stupid and silly according to Tim.
I wish someone in the TD office, like, I don't know, and editor, would read some of Tim's screeds before they are posted and maybe tone down the sarcasm and self rightousness a tad before putting them on the site. It doesn't make TD as a whole look very good, IMO. And I'm a loyal reader, even though I don't post as much as I used to. Just a thought.
There's no question Feinstein has been caught in a lie. The only question is did she lie when she said "There have been 16 individuals arrest just this year alone. Let me quickly just review what these plots were. And some of them come right from this program. The counterterrorism come and the information came right from this program," or is she lying now when she says essentially, "yeah that's what I said, but that's not what I meant"? Either way, does she not realize how bad this makes her look?
Four months. And that's with Snowden comming forward and announcing that he was responsible. Imaging how screwed the NSA would be if they didn't even know who was leaking this info. So the fact that others could be doing the same thing, but just selling the info to other countries, should be a wake up call to Clapper and the rest of these unscrupulous morons.
