Skeptics Would Like Media To Stop Calling Science Deniers 'Skeptics'

BlindRobin Re:Established science CANNOT BE QUESTIONED! (634 comments)

Yes constant questioning is at the heart of scientific inquiry however deliberate obfuscation of established science for political and economic objectives is not scepticism but subterfuge.

Ask Slashdot: Paying For Linux Support vs. Rolling Your Own?

BlindRobin It's pretty much the same as insurance. (118 comments)

Tis question is not exactly but largely analogous to the question : 'Do we self insure or purchase insurance'? The risk evaluation is complex and the answer is dependant on the a number of weighty factors not least of which is the amount of liquid assets available to address a catastrophic failure. Hire a risk analyst.

Boo! The House Majority PAC Is Watching You

BlindRobin Sensitive much? (468 comments)

Whoop-tee shit! It's a stupid and desperate strategy precisely because most people will react as you did but nobody is trying to threaten or intimidate you, though they may be trying to shame or coerce you into engaging with your friends and neighbours in order to encourage them to engage in the political system. I think they are frustrated and grasping at straws because political discourse in the US has deteriorated to such an extent that the process has become mostly dysfunctional.

Did you use technology to get into mischief as a child?

BlindRobin Re:Define technology (231 comments)

My friends and I made a lot of black powder and various other explosives and propellants for rockets, fireworks and kinetic projectile delivery not to mention the the odd petrol bomb just for fun. The authorities were never involved.

Why the Moon's New Birthday Means the Earth Is Older Than We Thought

BlindRobin Re:Earth is 6000 years old (98 comments)

It's not hatred mate... It's pity mixed with dismay about the state of education and social disfucntion engendered in such beliefs all expressed as what would be seen as good natured ribbing if the mistake being pointed at was hmm lets say mistaking Paris, Texas for Paris, France.

College Grads Create Fake Tesla Commercial That Elon Musk Loves

BlindRobin Re:Yes (100 comments)

'Self made' is a myth, all of them had to first develop strong and binding connections with sources of capital, influence and discreet knowledge not their own. It is as much, and more in most cases, the cultivation of these relationships as it is their talents and vision that make for success.

Slashdot Tries Something New; Audience Responds!

BlindRobin Re:And that's exactly what I asked for. (2219 comments)

Define 'better'.
For me better implies an increase in utility. Current /. has a very high utility quotient indicating that a complete redesign is unnecessary and a few tweaks here and there would suffice.
So why do it?
Because some people are trying to justify their existence and insure their own niche by pandering to the money bags with a 'vision' to attract an greater more diverse audience and redefining the environment in which they exist. OR The money bags gave them the directive to increase the views and they are just responding to the pressure the only way they know how.
