I would hazard a guess that it was a Win10 install. MS is all about the cloud & accounts in the cloud and make it hard to create an account that isn't web based, its like 4 almost hidden tiny print clicks to make one.
"The prosecutor's office still refuses to comment"
Well that should go on their exit survey. It isn't nice to think about, and we all like to assume they are doing a heck of a job... but perhaps it is time to actually pay attention to what these people are doing.
The citizens should demand answers from the DA, ask why the ADA was given authority to threaten compliance or else, and how much money has been wasted in having them reviewing all of these things.
Perhaps it was an hugely ignorant step trying to avoid placing administrators in a position where they might have to use their own judgement and avoid upset parents... seems that worked out well.
"Superintendent Scott Oswald estimated that on some occasions over the last month, officers may have been called to as many as five incidents per day in the district of 1,875 students."
So a parent looking to be offended by a word, matters more to them because they can imagine hundreds of parents forming a MillionMoms and threatening a boycott.
Look at the people they target, those they don't think anyone will care about. Brown people are thrown off of planes by racists mentioning how uncomfortable they are being made... and expect the world to make THEM more comfortable. Imagine if corp policy became to offer them the later flight, rather than parade the brown person off the plane to waiting police?
Because they fear the USG more than they fear their customers. The USG loves to play the everyone has to help stop terrorism card and enjoy mentioning how secret messages are being passed in online games with words written in bullets on walls. They can now hold up this awesome story about how they stopped terrorism, rather than fending off a random story about how they support terrorism because random guy had a name some wingnut was offended by.
If it was such a horrible word, why was he allowed to make the account? Preemptively banning the word would seem to make more sense then screwing a paying customer well after the fact.
"when a report was submitted the decision to ban your account was taken" So some idiot, who more than likely was beaten in a game and most likely used wonderful words files a complaint and wins.
So a SINGLE report about a name being offensive is enough to lock someone out of the content they paid for? Or your CSR overreacted and had a meltdown over the name, and you are trying to save face after screwing a customer that harshly over his name.
Sony - we can fuck you without lube and you dumb mfers keep coming back.
Because society is much more eager to accept those owning a penis of being the secret pervs who would download pornography. Threats of informing the world you download & enjoy porn seem to keep the dollars rolling in.
It is so very nice that technology consumers want is being crippled by a legacy industry that gets laws than benefit an outdated business model because they refuse to adapt to consumer demand.
Once upon a time businesses thrived when they gave consumers what they wanted, why do we keep allowing them to hold us hostage? Why do we have to accept less than the best because they refuse to notice time keeps marching on? Rather than admit their models don't make sense in todays market, they sue to try and roll things back to the early days of television when you have to watch what they programmed when it was programmed to air.
What would Comcast do to someone who owed them that much money for so long and kept playing the check will show up?
One wonders how many times they can screw up on peoples accounts, before there are like some sort of industry watchdogs who would I dunno bar them from access peoples accounts until they get their shit together.
They have access to withdraw money and do so without any rhyme or reason... how is this different than theft? As someone known to randomly steal from customers, one would think someone might cut off their access until its fixed. The behavior is unacceptable, and to finally condescend saying make the bank fix it shows that they shouldn't have this sort of access if they are going to demand customers & banks expend resources to fix Comcast being unable to handle its own affairs correctly.
I do hope that the Governor is ready to point out to the first lawmaker to claim she hates the children or something, that wasting efforts with blatantly unconstitutional laws to score points in the media is someone who shouldn't represent people. That soundbite legislation might make people feel better, but almost never leads to actually making things better and often hurt them more as they waste money on legal fights that never should have happened.
Imagine a system that when a lawyer did something stupid, and then tried baseless legal bluster to cover it up would send the lawyer back to classes explaining the law & then after successful completion they could reapply to the bar.
Far to often these things get overlooked in what seems to be an idiotic effort to protect the image of the system by protecting a broken piece (seems familiar) rather than bitchslapping them down for overreach. How many more of these stories do there need to be before they understand that the system of looking away draws more mocking of the system and damages the image of the system even further?
