Find myself wishing any Old Ox was available on my side of the country since Redbull has decided to provide the with a national advertising campaign. Maybe with the increased brand recognition they'll be able to expand soon.
Couldn't the bugfix instead of disabling overclocking simply have an opt in massive 'coverage voided, possible risks include flames, death and Gozer' screen and overclocking is disabled unless and until they opt in. Would prevent the 'But I didnt know' crowd while still allowing anyone that felt they knew the risks to play.
The thing they are going to find is they will lose users having disabled comments. I dont speak up all that often here or on ArsTrchnica, but I read the comments on both site regularly because they frequently add to the material. Sites that disable comments lose that additional depth and instantly become less useful. Yes it gets rid of the Anon commentards as well but the one adds far more value than the other costs.
Could you actively discourage people from showing up at the offices of local government location, especially on Friday at 6pm? As long as one is pointing out it is inadvisable as the government frowns on organized protest...
Trying to get them to send takedowns to their own site would be less than useful, they are likely to work that out in house without the public ever noticing. Now having them issue take downs on hordes of legitimately posted music on Youtube/Amazon/Itunes from the companies that pay their way? That has some potential of reaching the wider media.
To me Wikipedia serves the exact same purpose as an Encyclopedia did back in the day. Its a first stop overview on a subject which might possibly point you in the right direction for further reading. No more, no less.
Where you get into issues, and why you need to take wikipedia with a grain of salt, is people can basically own a topic which is where you end up with a climate change denier deleting any reference to the subject on the Hurricane Sandy page at the time despite having no training in the field. One link provided, don't know if its the best one as its been some time since I read the originals. http://www.popsci.com/technology/article/2012-11/wikipedia-sandy
At some point if countries keep rolling out stupid rulings such as this, or some of the French attacks on Google, can these companies simply start blocking said countries? While I'm sure the domain registrar or Google would be unhappy to lose the corresponding business it still seems less painful and I would frankly love to see the reactions of the governments when large portions of the net simply went away.
Generally love the quality of the posts here but could use a hair more editing on this one before the late evening upload. In the fifth paragraph I know you want 'as well as' rather than 'ass well as' and I am pretty certain you want the judge taking apart Riley's lies with disassembles rather than further obscuring it by dissembling his lies.
