Is one of the biggest fucking scams the world over.
Seriously, you can pay assloads of cash for an EV Cert and for fucking nothing more than a few bits of encryption.
The idea that a 3rd party should be default trusted on any computing platform is the same as pulling your fucking pants down every time a rapist walks by. You are just fucking begging to be rapped! Every commercial CA has spies in them, and for very fucking damn good reasons!
Beyond the alleged backing of Trump, there's more to be gained than simply pointing out the media's transparent disdain for the Republican candidate. There are also leaked -- but unreleased -- documents stored on agencies' servers.
Wasn't the NYT one of the news organizations which received the Snowden documents? Most of which, reportedly, have not been released.
"Your beloved Jefferson and the Dem party has a horrible history of treatment of people of color."
This is certainly true, as the Democratic Party prior to the realignment in the 50s-60s were as or more hardline anti-civil rights than the Republicans. On the other hand, the opposite has been the case since that realignement. So, shall we focus on what these parties had done in the first half of this century, or shall we focus on what they've done more recently and at present?
And, while Jefferson certainly had among the worst flaws imaginable in being a slave owner, I would stand by the statement that his work has brought more freedom to the world than any other person in the history of the planet.
"Not to mention your Darwinist friends in the communist party that have put many millions in the ground."
When is this canard about Darwin=Communist going to end? It's not accurate, it's barely correlative, and the term "Darwinist" doesn't even make sense....
What I cannot fathom, is how a corporation whose executive leadership says "we see our market moving away from our product, we see the direction they are headed, and we have tools to easily position ourselves there, buuuuuut ... we feel that we should stay the course." can reasonably retain that leadership. Seriously, the board should just wipe it's O-level ass.
I tried to do it legitly for these Olympics. We went through the NBC streaming, only to be blocked by cable requirements. A friend that was over put in his info to be able to watch, only to be sick of it within an hour of watching due to the insufferable amounts of commercials.
At this point, I just said fuck it, pulled up my list of VPNs and tunneled over to London to get the BBC streams. These were amazing with little to no commercials during events, though we were still a bit limited on what we could watch events wise.
Then I pulled out a fresh list of IPTV streams and was able to watch all the channels I wanted at 1080p from all over the world and we were able to catch all kinds of events that we didn't even know about since NBC pretty much only streamed events that the US was competing in.
Moral of the story? When your viewers find it easier to go through hoops and break the law to view your content, you're doing something wrong.
"A clearer example of gender discrimination is women only gyms, which have a clear gender discrimination that cannot be routed around as they actively deny participation by males, and as far as I know there are no dude only gyms. There's reasons for their existence, but I don't agree with them."
Exercise facilities have historically been single sex only, and only became co-ed in the USA somewhat gradually a few decades ago (depending on the region of the country). Then many of these gyms (especially the larger ones) re-instituted a female-only exercise section -without any corresponding all-male section- so women would have a "safe space" free from unwanted attention -- at least in theory.
My local mega-gym had a substantial women-only section (behind frosted glass) but for some strange reason women preferred to use the treadmills in the main section (which were ALWAYS fully occupied during peak hours) while the treadmills in the women-only section went largely unused, basically acting as a overflow section when the main floor got full.
