    it hardly seems unreasonable to demand a user-aimed taser mounted to every pc for, um, for crowd control...
    not unreasonable at all...

    entrapment doesn't matter anymore...
    real crime rate is down so much, they have to make up thought crimes and fake crimes to jack up the people they protect and serve...

    Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re:The evidence is that intellectual property is THEIR STUFF, not yours.

    1. thank you for pointing out the self-evident to anti-dirt, which is *always* a necessary predicate...

    2. *IF* 'creators' (read: korporations who own individual peoples' creative output) are so jealous and protective of their precious "IP", then let it stay locked up in their file cabinets... see how much 'benefit' they get from that... their precious "IP" will be 100% safe...

    3. *BUT* *IF* they want to release it to the world TO MAKE MONEY (which is their total motivation), then expect it will be copied/transformed... you can't have it both ways: skim off all the cream and have none of the sour milk...
    you literally profit from the public at large choosing your craptastic junk over *their* craptastic junk, but then go on to say the public -who MADE YOU- can't benefit in any further manner ? ? ?
    (which was *purportedly* the *other* -ignored- part of the copyright/patent 'deal' )

    the other poster nailed anti-dirt's posting style, i vacillate between him being a twue bewiever authoritarian, and a paid stooge of one stripe or another...
    *someone* has to be the paid shills that are known to exist...

    prima facie evidence of incipient insanity...

    do not try and bend the google. that's impossible. instead only try to realize the truth. there is no google. then you will see it is not the google that bends, it is yourself...

    their word means nothing...

    1. have ZERO doubt, were UK to 'streamline', 'improve' their snooping laws, nearly all the protections would be jettisoned, and nearly all the immoral ("illegal" means NOTHING when rights and laws are broken ALL THE TIME by gummint actors, with NO consequences) bits that give them unlimited surveillance with NO repercussions for abuse, would get in...

    2. DO.
    NOT.
    BELIEVE.
    THEM.

    *just like* i have ZERO faith in any bullshit oversight of various gummint institutions by various gummint institutions to uncover anything of consequence...

    nine one one is the new godwin, but here it goes: do ANY kampers realize that nearly ALL the PRE-APPROVED members on the original nine one one (purposefully limited) commission have called for re-opening that investigation (which wasn't an investigation) ? ? ?
    no ?
    huh, funny that: THE most important terrorist attack which was the crowning impetus for implementing this police state, and nearly all the commish's are saying they were lied to and handcuffed and absolutely believe there should be a thorough investigation re-opened...
    funny, you'd think that would be headline news...

    3. of course, this doesn't even begin to address the end run ALL these spooks have done in getting you guys to spy on our guys we can't 'legally' (whatever, means nothing) do; and our guys will spy on your guys you can't 'legally' do...
    wtf ? ? ?
    WHO lets their KIDS get away with sophistry like this: oh, noes, mommy, *I* didn't get the cookies out of the cookie jar, li'l timmy did, i just put him up to it, gave him the stepstool to get the cookie jar, and ate all the cookies, but *I* didn't do it...
    AND, they get away with horseshit like that ? ? ?
    not in my moral universe they don't...

    @ anon cow-
    1. i propose this to you: what if (and it isn't an 'if', it is a definite), 'our' computer-based voting systems are NOT secure (they are not) ?
    then the ONLY method we have for 'holding them accountable' is borked...

    2. but, let's be stupid and assume the voting systems are valid: when the two hydra heads of the SAME korporate money party have the system on lock down, HOW in dog's name do we EFFECTIVELY get any other 3rd party candidates any traction ? we don't...

    3. HOW do we actually DO our due diligence and oversight when it is kept super duper top secret EVEN FROM OUR DULY ELECTED officials *supposedly* providing oversight ? how can WE "OWNERS" of democracy provide any oversight of things kept (PURPOSEFULLY/ILLEGALLY) out of sight that we have NO knowledge of being done in our names with our monies ? ? ?

    4. lastly, the warm and fuzzy anecdote (BASED ON A MOVIE) is sweet and all; but when the media is bought and paid for to NOT do any such investigative reporting, HOW is a mere citizen supposed to put the fear of dog in our 'superiors' ? ? ? not going to happen to any significant degree, just not going to, i don't care how many pairs of rose-colored glasses you have on...

    Re: Re: Re: Re: Say what?

    well, the documentary (from docurama 'channel' ?) i was watching, forget the name, was about a guy going back home from the north to north carolina, and kind of investigating his family his story, which included a great grandfather being a rich tobacco farmer until he was wiped out (apparently from various eee-vil machinations of a rival tobacco farmer), and it was interupted about every 10-12 minutes for A. watching the tailchasing animations, B. 2-3 short-ish commercials for a minute or two, C. more tailchasing animation when the documentary came back on...

    um, not sure how i can 'prove' that, without taking screenshots, whatever... so either i was lucidly hallucinating (which has never happened before, so i'm dismissing that), or they were showing commercials...

    hell, that's half the reason i hate going to freaking movie theaters, the damn commercials, and the endless previews...
    show me a cartoon or two, then start the movie... THAT is the way dog almighty intended movies to be shown...

    (oh, and have the ushers do summary executions of people who leave their cellyphones on in the movies...)

    Re: Re: Say what?

    not big on prime, selection is underwhelming, and the ad model sucks, both as the idea of i PAY for content with cash-money, then i PAY for it AGAIN with them hijacking my eyeballs every 10-15 minutes...

    AND their ads are
    1. a LOT of crappy PSAs, and exxon feelgood propaganda, SOS different day...
    2. i guess they just put them on a timer, because 'normal' teevee *at least* (not saying much) puts ads in natural breaks in the shows (or, rather, the shows are staged for those 'natural' breaks); prime just plops them in any old where... messed up a documentary interview i was watching the other day...
    3. *AND* watching the stupid tail-chasing animation while the ad loads, and then the show reloads, is annoying...
    i give prime 3 mehs...

    Re: Ignorance

    was that some sort of stealth adlet ? ? ?

    speculated to SWMBO the other night, that ads were going to start being location-specific, in that -say- ad is of a couple in front of starsux coffee; depending on where you are, the local starsux coffees shop will be projected as the background to the commercial...

    shit, i should have patented that, and let NO ONE have it...

    Re: Re: Chip Bok

    exactly...
    this guy is an 'expert' ? ? ?

    *AND* he is some kind of adviser to a (whatever else you might think of it, and i generally think of sat night live parodies) mainstream, prominent, major media outlet ? ? ?

    we are fucked...
    if orgs that have the resources and public profile to have competent legal advice are relying on the likes of this parasite, er, lawyer who espouses both wrongheaded 'legal advice', AND evinces an innate bias towards copy maximalism, what chance does your average joe have against such an onslaught of ignorance and FUD ? ? ?

    yes, thank you, annoyed the author glossed over that: on the face of it, it was wrong *then*, and it is wrong *now*, regardless of the 'legality' of it, as far as the original bullying that made a deal that didn't have to be...

    evidently, two wrongs do make a right...

    Re: The viciousness of the IOC

    1. they have been caught in endless bribery schemes, they are not actors with clean hands...
    2. apparently, countries are slowly waking up to the fact that -similar to major sports teams who extort new stadiums, etc- bidding on/getting the olympics is a MONEY LOSING scheme, and only a few insiders, contractors, etc derive much of any benefit on the backs of mere citizens who finance the insane money-eating 'villages' and venues...
    hosting the olympics means you LOSE money, you are STUCK with bonds for decades, and the proposed 'villages' and venues become white elephants that invariably do NOT pay off in any way...

    as digdug so colorfully put it initially, losing a lot of interest in the sham sports, the bullshit propaganda, etc...
    LOVE the idea of the olympics, but the implementation is horrid...
    WHY wouldn't they just have ONE permanent venue for summer olympics, and ONE permanent venue for winter olympics ? ? ?
    what would be wrong with that ? ? ?
    oh, you mean they couldn't fleece new marks every four years, i see your point... *snicker*
