How Watchmen Killed 'R'-rated Fantasy Movies
What does it mean if you didn't even notice his penis was shown during the movie and only found out it was reading this discussion?
Feds Settle Case of Woman Fired Over Facebook Posts
You might not put anything on there you don't want employers to know, but does that guarantee that someone else won't?
Pub Patrons Down Under Subject To Biometric Datamining
If it is a life-long punishment, I'd say yes.
Not everyone who does a bad thing will continue doing it indefinitely. How many people do you know that have stolen some sweets from a store when they were younger, but wouldn't dream of doing it now?
Obviously, this can be counter-acted by a "lifetime" for the ban (so it expires after a few months on the first incident, few years on the second and never on the third, for example) or some way of getting removed from the list such as showing you have received help in curbing the behaviour.
Abusing HTTP Status Codes To Expose Private Info
I can only get all the comments to display if I don't have the "Classic" interface. When I select it, only the first comment (and the first child of each comment under it) show up.
Perhaps they have the same issue?

peer: a person who is of equal standing with another in a group
So yes, quacks reviewing quacks does count as peer review. Don't dismiss something just because it was said by someone/a group you don't like.
Warner Bros. Accused of Pirating Anti-Pirating Tech
I'm somewhat surprised this is allowed. Making a mistake is one thing, but purposely falsifying information that someone is paying you for (perhaps even specifically for the accuracy!) is another.
Is this one of those things that is actually allowed by law or just unenforceable because they can claim it was a mistake?

Ballmer Says Microsoft Wasted Time On Vista
So you either modify everyone's desktop because you don't want that icon on your desktop (providing you have sufficient privileges) or you have to put up with it in case some other user wants it on their desktop?
Why is it an issue? Isn't there a technique called 'white-out' or something to handle this without having to do either of the above? Like.. creating a hidden file with the same name suffixed with "_DELETE" which tells Windows not to show that icon? Or have it part of desktop.ini
UnionFS (and similar) manage to cater for this scenario..

GM Working On Interactive Windshields
The following transpired during my driving lessons ( about 2/3years ago ) in a Ford Ka.
"When I put my hand on the dash, I want you to do an emergency stop."
*gets up to speed and the hand goes to the dash, brakes are slammed on*
"Did you just skid?"
"Yes, I thought you said this car has ABS?"
So far, my experience of ABS is "it doesn't help".. but it may have simply been broken on that particular car ( I've not had to stop quickly in any other car with ABS that I've driven ).
Pirate Bay Shuts Down Tracker, Switches To Distributed Hash Table
Using something like lessfs ( http://www.lessfs.com/ ) but across the *entire* network?
Is it illegal to download a list of instructions on which chunks to use ( and in what order ) to create a copyrighted work from your family photos? :)

AARON SWARTZ would have known his access was unauthorized because it was with a password that did not belonged to him.
Proof-reading. A valuable tool.
Children's Watch Allows Parents To Track Their Kid
Actually, that raises a good question.
GPS is quite a weak signal, and in my experience, rarely works indoors.
So would this be useless in a mall or other large, high-human-density building?
Children's Watch Allows Parents To Track Their Kid
If I were subjected to this, the first thing I would do would be to figure out how to remove it without setting of the alarm and then tie it to, say, a car exhaust. If only for the challenge!
On another note, the world may not be more safe or unsafe as it has in the past. The difference is that it has becomes easier to hear about what *does* happen with the internet and such.

Out of curiosity, what would you do in the event of breaking down in "the middle of nowhere"?
New York MTA Asserts Copyright Over Schedule
There are parts of Queens where you do not want to be alone on a subway platform at 3AM.
Unless they are notorious for things dropping on your head, I'd imagine you are safest when you are alone :)

No worries, to me it wasn't rude at all, just "matter-of-factly". It's all good :)
