The world is full of hypocrites. This is not new. My Anti-American comment was directed at you because of your use of 'Your government', which I take to mean that you are not a US citizen.
Under that assumption, it's a bit odd to call out the US Government for merely arresting a guy for posting pro-ISIS material when ISIS itself would have killed the guy outright if he had posted US-propaganda. This guy will get his day in court, and if it turns out he is pro-ISIS then he gets what's coming to him. We don't need people like that. It's okay to hold a different point of view unless that point of view means you killing me. That changes things.
I do disagree with them. They are murderers and rapists and all-around shitty guys to hang around, what with the beheadings and all. I have lots of people I don't agree with on many things, and not once have I tried to kill any of them.
I don't want their destruction. I want them to stop. There is a difference. If it turns out the only way to prevent them from killing innocents is to destroy them, then by all means let's destroy them. The world will be a better place without theme and they can all enjoy their 72 virgins in paradise. Win-win.
Anyone is entitled to their political/religious/personal belief system until it comes to the point that it is impacting others in a negative way, like raping children.
So, come out and say it. Are you Pro- or Anti-ISIS? Do you disagree with me because I pointed out the flaw in your anti-American post or do you really support ISIS?
Yes, anyone that is pro-ISIS I do in fact hate. Doesn't mean I'm going to kill him, but yes, I do hate him. See, the difference between me and him is I don't want him dead, just gone where he can't hurt anyone. ISIS wants non believers dead.
You mean like how ISIS kills anyone that doesn't agree with them? Are you really trying to say that The US government is silencing dissent when ISIS is out there killing people that don't agree with Islam?
This isn't dissent. This person has aligned themselves with an openly hostile terrorist organization that is responsible for the killing of tens of thousands of innocent people, including children. They want nothing less than the destruction of anyone that does not agree with them.
It doesn't matter if his speech hurt anyone. He posted names, pictures and locations of private individuals who are in the military and advocated killing them. This isn't free speech, this is hate speech and should be addressed as such.
If he made a general statement or retweeted a general statement like, "the military should die lollll1l1l", then no harm done. Posting private information like this is wrong. Assuming he knows right from wrong (not mentally impaired), this makes him an ISIS sympathizer. He gets what he deserves.
Maybe the student was comfortable with the image and herself until a teacher decided that she didn't fit in and there was something wrong with her. When the teacher selected her picture she passed judgement on the girl.
That article has it wrong. It conveniently left out the fact that the majority of miners have to confirm any blocks found. So if a pool actually attempts this they run the risk of forming their own blockchain fork, which will become utterly useless if the majority finds a block at the same time the minority pool does. Also, with the hashrate and difficulty so high, this method is way too risky to even consider. Miners won't knowingly join a pool if their shares are at risk from being lost or orphaned. The longer the pool 'hides' results, the more they stand to lose.
That is true, however, this was not a lack of market interest. This was extreme market interest (gaming) and when MS saw their financial future they changed course. They ignored every single point brought up by their fanbase and tried to 'position' it away as some kind of benefit.
Remember 'Sweet Billy'? That should have clued them in then, but they didn't listen.
They didn't listen to their customers at all. The feedback provided by the retailers and the dismal preorders is what they listened too. These changes would not have been made if the preorders were anywhere near what Microsoft projected.
And that reason is used games. Used game sales contributed to the success of Xbox and other consoles. It is a fixture on the landscape and EA and MS have hatched up plan to kill used game sales off. EA recently announced no more Online Passes because they weren't working. Well, the other shoe has dropped and it stinks too.
Even though there are plenty of people that hate Gamestop they are thriving. In fact there are over 6600 locations. That's a lot of consumer-level support for used games.
If I get an XBOX One, I will not be using it for any video functionality. I will be using this to motivate me to build my HTPC.
And you would find a clause that says if you put a SIM card in a data-capable device you will be charged for data.
The only way to be consistent here is to charge all smartphones data. There are too many stupid people out there that have no clue how to operate a smartphone and giving people the ability to have a smartphone without a data plan is asking for trouble. As a result, all smartphones get charged data.
Don't forget to blame the manufacturers too. How many Smartphones are available that can only access WiFi? None.
