I was going to suggest the same as a few others above: Color code links to sites for varying reasons, including those who block visitors because of an ad blocker or noscript.
What really needs to happen, and possibly users dropping site visit and complain will help magically now with some content providers, the way it generally hasn't almost ever since the 90s, is that these sites need to drop the damn ad providers until they do a better job.
Sites also need to place a few ads judiciously on a page. No problem then, especially if they aren't malware vectors.
People buying ads should be smarter too, about picking ads that don't fucking annoy people.
Flash, other video, and sound ads need to just go away. I'll click through if i want to see it, if not, you aren't selling me something anyway, and i'm going to block you, and maybe stop visiting sites that serve the ads.
It's funny, the only way i use ad blockers is by opting to block ads myself. So if you are cool, amybe only some or none of the ads displayed on your page will be blocked. Assumeing the domain they are served from isn'ty so annoying that it isn't allowed in noscript.
And that is the other thing. You ever try hosting you own dam content and ads? Do you really need to be serving scropts and garbage from 50 other domains? And so that your content isn't even viewable until one allows a chain of several scripts?
Really, and some people pay enough for bandwidth on some devices. And for some people, pages aren't even reasonably accessible if they don't block at least some of ad-heavy pages. Either it is too much for them, or their system. Stop being ridiculous bastards.
I'm even happy to support a site by clicking though, if they aren't obnoxious with what the put on their pages.
If you are running your own DNS server and it is in the VPN pipethen sure it would be used if that is what is configured on the local device. Or you could be served out of the local resolver cache anything that hasn't expired. Or HOSTS, etc. But if you are running your own resolver, requests aren't going to an ISP reolver anyway. If you run a normal corporate DNS server and that is in the VPN tunnel also and it is configured to query an ISP DNS server, well... But your average user of some VPN service is subject to whatever resolver addresses are configured on exit server unless they specifically respect your local and/or router resolver address settings (and probably have a VPN setting to specify that, with default off).
I've seen a lot of this, people complaining that they are not using such and such resolver (especially OpenDNS if they use the domain filtering and suddenly it isn't working) and why is this happening? Turns out they are using a VPN if it isn't the ISP hijacking their requests or they seriously didn't configure things correctly.
Chain of evidence is all about trusting them to not lie and manipulate or manufacture in the first place. It doesn't matter what method they use, any can be suspect. There are definitely best prcitces and such which are better at preserving the integrity of evidence, but mostly that is a benefit to the investigation. (You know, like not changing the damn password like they did, killing the cloud storage.) Sure, some things are more likely to be seen as a clever defense challenge in court, but most are meaningless in terms of fact and more an emotional play. And there is little case here involved. They are looking for intelligence, not a way to convict dead people.
The colloquial usage of the term democracy to describe what is theoretically a democratic republic is completely irrelevant to this and everything else you "it's not a democracy" types harp on about.
When someone makes the never-heard claim that every bit of government business should be handled by a direct vote of all constituents, go ahead and explain this to them, it may have some use then.
It is not and never has been a problem of misunderstanding in any regard.
Democracy has been the key point in how governments are or were theoretically or actually in some cases granted the power to govern, as opposed to republics and other forms of government formed by other means. And that is one of the problems: That the democratic part of the process has been subverted, whther by powered authoritarian interests of by the electorate itself.
Oh dear. Violating due process. By his definition, then, this happens every time the cops leave any case unsolved, or don't really bother (which is often), whether it is murder or fraud or a stolen bicycle. Further, the courts and prosecution also violate due process since they do not seek to expose the full truth, but merely win their case. Also, the entire Earth should be held in contempt for not coughing up anyone or anything that was never found. *Squints really hard in the direction of things like concrete and fire and random holes in the ground.*
He;s demonstrated manipulation and multiple failures in amassing his consecutive fortunes. Still not a good way to run an administration, and he would not be an improvement.
If you think that what he says is stupid/racist/whatever then effectively you are saying that the American public (or at least the segment that votes in republican primaries) is also stupid/racist/whatever.
