Depending on the site itself and the type/frequency/brashness of the ads dictate whether I use a blocker. The biggest difference is Flash. If a particular ad provider supports Flash based ads I block the provider itself, not the site. If the site promotes ads that use flash or itself using flash then I simple never go back to the site.
Google bought doubleclick.com. Originally I had them blocked because, regardless of anything else, many pages wouldn't load because they were waiting on them. I unblocked it now as while it was better initially, it degraded.
The rival factions thing has some traction personally. In particular after the two good ol' boys making nice at the CPAC. Steve Bannon slings shit really fast, is noted for off the cuff riffs, on pizzas for for instance. The make nice was clearly staged.
Of course then entire Trump Bunch have no real idea how the government actually works, they just know they want to disable the Executive branch completely, except for Der Groper. And their own job, that goes without lying.
Just running grep on messages and locking accounts is just bad business as well as being a bad script kiddie.
*Never* reviewing until the media picks up the story is a flag. That flag indicates that PayPal.com is run by A: script kiddies, B: people that don't take their job seriously (see A), C: people that want to keep their customers money whenever they want to while refusing to review their fancy scripts (See B).
The story of paypal keeping $300k of Notch's payments from Minecraft users led me to Minecraft and I bought it. They seized the money because nobody could be making that much money on a video game, not and run it through paypal anyway. Well, they were right. Because paypal is run by hamfisted script kiddies, "Yeah, just grep Syrian. That'll work fine and we get to keep the money."
Of course, ever since I keep a close eye on Paypal and their playing loose with morals, choices, scripts and random bullshit.
This changes nothing about how the US has allowed visitors into the country. Indeed, it is about maintaining the status quo and continuing to allow those from seven countries the same access they have had for years and that every other country still has. Once vetted and with a valid visa or greencard then they are welcomed to our country.
Now your confusion is that somehow that process is now missing. That cannot be further from the truth. The decision doesn't change anything, in fact it clearly states that POTUS has violated the constitutional rights of those that were already vetted and in the country.
While the neo-nazis like to conflate non-white to everyone not a US citizen they have always had a lack of understanding regarding the constitutional protections that cover 'persons' in these United States. Much like POTUS doesn't understand this particular protection, most likely because the neo-nazi Steve Bannon is advising him on matters neither are qualified in.
As far as I know, there is nothing in the Constitution or any laws regarding *non-literal* copying of anything. Either it is copied or it is not.
Software itself is mostly an expression of mathematics however trying to explain that to a layperson or a lawyer is nearly impossible. As such what is even copyrightable when the basis of the language itself forces others to use the same exact expressions.
To leave the results of their BS/handwaving/magic analysis is unacceptable.
My own question regarding this result is what is diminus infringement and how can that be worth $50M?
Doubling the length of the vertical component would make a proper 'cross' out of it, leaving behind the plus sign. Now synonymous with greed and the various red cross organizations.
Although the Star of Life is better solution as it avoids both the idiots at RC and religious overtones. Unless you want the religious overtones that go with a red cross. Dripping in blood. Ooh, that's a keeper.
Somehow I doubt if the actual profit for the newspapers are centered on news articles.
Maybe they should take Business 101 again, or finally. Taxing others to ensure Canadians can continue is their tradition, as I recall they still charge different prices for CD/DVD for data or entertainment. Is that still a thing?
