    Leaks, Leaks, Leaks.

    When I first read HBO "Leaks..." I could only think 'White House'. Bannon just got the boot from the WH, maybe HBO can pull in a General Kelly of their own, and only until 18 days of lies, insults, Constitutional crises, and all of the WH' own enabling,realize the problem is really them.

    And, of course, they'll definitely rake in cabbage like asteriod "Florence" is really going to hit our planet this time.

    It's bullshit, and they are trying to garner sympathy for something that is / was entirely their fault.

    Well, I for one, hear their cries, and I reply, "MERP".

    Re: Re: Excuses are like assholes...

    Ms. Wendy Cockcroft,

    It is a simile. Simple enough. I could also use the "Patent Applied For" on Banana boxes. But that would be slightly weaker with its intended comparison, as not alot of citizens have looked at a Banana box lately. The boxes are out there, Patent status is non sequitur...

    Excuses are like assholes...

    citing its pending patent

    Sounds very much like, "[] can't release my Taxes because I am under audit" bullshit act that D.J. Trump espouses everytime he is asked for a date on when his taxes will be released. AND, don't give me some more bullshit lame-ass defence that "He doesn't have to release his taxes if he doesn't want to."

    Do you hear that??? That's HMS TRUMP getting its ass sunk by a Russian Iceberg...

    Deliberately Ignoring Facts

    []"... no policing of the police during the Trump Years"

    I'm sure Months was actually the intended tense. Regardless, anyone who has an inkling of Sessions previous Political history, well knows this man was going to be one of the larger fails in this "so-called President's" Administration.

    The USD is the real Victim here...

    "Hooo boy. Where to start?"

    You've got a good start. No Child Left Behind about sums it up...

    This is a tragic start to a career that hasn't started. Where does Dehen (Die Hen) get her figures from? I suspect it is the same Self-Entitled, Inflated sense of worth, and Ego - on all levels - that routinely pisses me off every time I leave my House, and has led her into this morass wherein she is about to ghost any future, and future earnings. I would also like to add that this sounds like something @realDonaldTrump would have posted to his own Twitter at three o'clock in the morning... while taking a dump...

    Dehen is a Moron plain and simple. If anyone (remember Corporations are People too - also Trump's words), the U of San Diego is the victim here. They have obviously convocated a student whom hasn't a basic grasp of the English language.

    jus' sayin'

    Application of "what you wrote up there"

    So, does this apply to most things, If, one used the event, any event, precisely as explained above?

    ie. Grey Cup/World Cup/a World Famous Marathon/Davis Cup/Wimbledon/PGA???

    And, if so, why don't more businesses and companies use this knowledge to their advantage? It seems like they're sitting in El Dorado and they don't even realize it.

    Just sayin'

    Great Game of Wits.

    This is kinda exciting! I would really like a comment from both the winners and losers as I'd like to know if *Denuvo* has been resting on their laurels, or have they simply reached the evolutionary end of the "*unbreakable*"code they created? or, are the Hackers getting really freakin' smart at their game?

    I think this is fun and exciting. I realize there are tens if a hundred and tens of millions of dollars at stake, but these are the things I need to know.

    I don't know about the rest of you'z... :)

    Re: I think you should go to Emergency 'No-Name'

    I think you should go to Emergency 'No-Name'... you invertebrate chest-pounding tard!

    Tillerson; Sessions; DeVos; Price; Mnuchin; Ross; Mattis; Carson; Kelly; Zinke; Perry; Priebus; Haley; McMahon; Pruitt; Flynn; Pompeo... most of these nutters won't get past the exams - that' means not graduating you dill-pickle fuck.

    No-Name, have you ever looked in the mirror and said to yourself, "Man, I am really fucked up..." 'cuz couz, you are really fucked up. Do you seriously believe that everything that has been fact checked ten thousand times over is Propaganda/Fake News/Outright Lies???

    I have spoke with Alt-Right members, and I was wondering what your alt-right defenders are saying. Do your Alt-Right buddies talk about No Wall? Immigration proposals that will never take effect? Fuck Obama Care? Talk about a time when Women just stayed in the Kitchen and spoke when spoken to? Grabbed Beers when told to grab Beers? Talk on War like there is no consequences? Pretty much everything President Elect Trump has promised to the Alt-Right is never, NEVER going to happen. What do you think will happen when thirty-million people... Citizens find themselves suddenly with out Health Care?? How about that Pussy Grabbin' game? You know, reduce Women's Rights to the level that the Greeks were using?

    Greek women had virtually no political rights of any kind and were controlled by men at nearly every stage of their lives

    The President Elect is, to be honest, a Sociopathic Sexual Predatory Misogynist who is a tool of the Russian President.

    Trump will get next to nothing accomplished in his First Hundred Days (bank on it), and all those promises made and broken to your Alt-Right friends have really pissed them off, and they're prolly talkin' 'bout a Second Amendment Resolution for the that lying, insane prick as well.

    They even talk about that ^ solution on Radio, and television, and I'm pretty sure they mean business, 'cuz they're obviously not afraid to say it... dwell on that one.


    And, again to be honest, You're sounding as close to nuts as they get.

    SO FUCK OFF Go play your games on your Laptop...

    I gotta see a Man about a Horse :D

    Do you have a specific donation page for funding?

    I Know. Go on and ridicule, but I say Get on Kickstarter. It's not as silly or useless as, perhaps, you Mike, might think. TD is not the only rodeo. There are hundreds of sites that people visit with the same reporting. Once They hear about a fight for First Amendment Rights, and a Life and Death struggle involving TechDirt, they'll be on board.

    AND, get the trial etc. re-located to your state! Loser Pays! SLAPP the lunatic down...

    Monsan who???

    Try to enforce this law. Monsanto is trying to re-colonize Africa - Tanzania in this instance - through the Tanzanian Legal System, and because Tanzanian Villagers have lived this Seed Co-operative existence for so, so many generations, you might just see revolution in some degree, if a Farmer is ever charged with an offense.

    I'm just saying...

    Apple has been making some bad bets lately. This will be another one.

    WHY? you ask.

    A "fan" will buy the White Album or Dark Side Of The Moon only so many times.

    Re: Socialist Begginings - Hidden Future

    It is a bit of a stretch, reaching an analogous conclusion, but it works at a deep level.

    I'll answer a couple of other posts while I'm getting to you. Both Companies have seemed to have melted into the Sofa; VW has never been ostracized let alone punished for their offenses - sneaky Germans right? :D Micro$oft has absolutely tefloned themselves past the 900 million Android fiasco. Unless, unless you actually make a concerted effort to find the news on this, nobody is talking about - is going to talk about it.

    What would happen to any one private individual - I am hypothesizing as Companies and Corporations are viewed as People, don't forget - if they brought a Virus to light, from the climes of some deep, dark African or South American jungle, and it was one hundred percent lethal, and was going to kill millions - Volkswagen - or a billion people - Micro$oft - Do we honestly think that this wouldn't be front page news for the rest of our natural lives? That is what a backdoor to encryption is. It is a virus with one hundred percent lethality, and it cannot be stopped, or cured with an apology. Much like Nature in its own way with every "backdoor" to the Human Immune System - Nature, that Company, is untouchable, and unapologetic.

    The French Revolution was a battle for Freedom, Liberty, Equality, and Property - it was a very bloody end to a regime that didn't "[make] them eat cake", but preferred to have them labour in conditions that were so inhospitable and alien, a human body could not exist - physically, let alone mentally, in Grotesque (I use the Italian noun form). They demanded rights...

    We have our rights! Let us all use them. BUT, and this I definitely have no answer for, how does anyone or anything get a billion people united?

    If M$ Windows had a backdoor that could be exploited where it absolutely made one billion computers dead, would that get our intentions and inclinations on the right path? What is the right path? I started University thirsty and hungry for knowledge, I graduated - I owed a hundred grand... there was no Google and Wikipedia, I expected to be constantly tested, nevertheless prepared , for whatever was thrown at me.

    How does someone WIN, and ever have to be argued with again over encryption?

    Memories are not what they used to be. They are days long, as compared to the decades that used to exist. Hiroshima and Nagasaki have just passed us. I did what I could to remind people of those two horror shows - experiments with a new concept of industrialized death - Wikipedia the whole process that led to the creation of atomic weapons, but nobody remembered. I was re-tweeted a dozen times - not the thousands of outraged voices that should have been singing. People just don't remember, or they just don't care - that is what makes a Trump Presidency so scary. Trump's a backdoor to a world of hurt - FOR EVERY ONE LIVING... it's as simple as that.

    A Politician wants backdoors, for information gathering purposes, don't wash this any other way, and VW and M$ are prime examples of what happens with any backdoor, exploited on an industrialized level.

    Re: GOOD CALL!!!

    Way to pick up on that...

    Data Colection

    The French blaming ISIL has been a standard ploy the United States has used for years - starting with Iraq circa 2001. Terrorism is the first best scariest tactic in any developed country's arsenal of Data Collection.

    Never-mind the War On Terror is actually showing tangible results. ISIL is fifteen thousand fighters strong at the moment. And, they possess thread-like holds on their past conquests. 15k down from an estimated 55k to 70k active fighters by previous accounts, and the press release by US gov this week.

    Open Access for more security nationally, or internationally, is a red-herring. The GOP is reconsidering its stands on encryption because of the DNC Hack.

    I thought the French would have become more involved in the Coalition, but there doesn't seem to be any serious military reaction from that Government.

    But, encryption is the topic, and ISIL doesn't use it, and if they do, the Governments are not telling us - they would be showing us the cards they're holding.

    Encryption, anonymity, or anything tool that prevents collecting data is not good for Business - the Governments intruding into private citizens business.

    This is afterthought concerning French Domestic policy. They have had more than their fair share of assaults on their security, but half of these attacks are not actually attributable to ISIL. It is an after-the-fact claims made by the terror organization - an awful lot of their attacks seem to share the same motus of Mental Health issues. The flags were there. The people just were not educated enough, or willing to play the roll of armchair Psychologist - although both the Armchair Doc and the educated Doc cannot write prescriptions.
