MPAA/RIAA are a far greater danger to freedom than any foreign terrorists. If there was real honesty in our justice system, both organizations and all of their top-level management would be facing RICO convictions.
So now we have a convenient list of spineless idiots who we no longer need to show any respect. These PEN writers who have signed this "protest" are craven cowards who mock the very idea of freedom of speech and are now actively patting the backs of the very terrorists who would murder masses of others because of their words.
"Of course we're weasely lying SOBs with no morals and a total contempt for humanity and rule of law. But, you're not allowed to have that evidence proving we're weasely lying SOBs with no morals and a total contempt for humanity and rule of law." -- MPAA
ITT: people who have absolutely no clue about employment law spouting off erroneous and ludicrous opinions about it. Mike has this correct. The Florida department ruled incorrectly, maybe they're as ignorant as many of the commenters here.
To me, this has been the worst travesty of the Obama administration. We expected this type of crap from Bush. But Obama promised transparency but has been anything but so. If anything, his administration has doubled-down on secrecy and added draconian punishment of anyone daring to blow the whistle on the blatantly illegal activities of the government. All of Obama's positive accomplishments will be overshadowed by his legacy of tyrant-like actions in this regard.
I have a new (less than 2 months old) Keurig 2.0 machine. I can easily bypass the DRM well enough but I've been using genuine K-cups since buying it. After brewing just 3 cups a day for a month/half, the machine stopped working, acted as if clogged somehow. Called tech support, they talked me through sticking a paper clip up into the side of the "needles" and flushing water through the machine by holding the activation button. After a couple of those flushes, the machine now works as it should. This must be such a known issue, the tech lady said she was mailing me an "official cleaning tool" to help with this process and that I should use it monthly. Maybe those design engineers shouldn't have spent so much time agonizing over imaginary exploding cups and instead made a more reliable device.
Cab companies act as if there was no Uber I'd use their service. No, I would find something else. Their service is that bad here in Atlanta, I'd rather do anything than get in a taxi. I'd walk 10 blocks first.
