Verizon Sued After Tech Punches Customer In Face

Cocoshimmy Re:So.... (493 comments)

I think we all have the right to ask anybody for their ID before we let a stranger into our house. I don't doubt that a white, asian or latino tech would also be asked for their ID on numerous occasions. Just because they don't like it and there is a small chance they did it because of their race, does not give them a right to get violent.

Verizon Sued After Tech Punches Customer In Face

Cocoshimmy Re:So.... (493 comments)

W....T....F....? "Well he hasn't beat any other customers so we're not going to do anything" Verizon said

This is not as bad as it sounds. Ok ok, just hear me out: IANAL but it appears that given the fact that verizon DIDNT fire him DESPITE his actions would mean an almost certain victory for the victim against Verizon in any civil suit along with hefty punitive damages. It would be even worse if the tech ends up hitting someone else and the second victim sued too.

Hosting a Highly Inflammatory Document?

Cocoshimmy Re:I know where . . . (471 comments)

I have to agree with you on this one. But if they're super paranoid, buy a flash drive and copy the document there, in plain text format or one that does not store metadata if possible. If there is a way to trace that back to the copier I'd be surprised.

Cocoshimmy Re:Sudden Peace? (1067 comments)

I agree that Hamas is not exactly tolerant, but I completely disagree with you that Israel is prepared to "live and let live". If that were the case, there would be no Israeli occupations, no illegal Israeli settlements in occupied territories, no invasion of neighboring countries like lebanon (and im not just talkin about the 2006 invasion, also the 20 year occuption from the 1980's) and there would be a Palestinean state.

Jerry Seinfeld Will Plug Vista

Cocoshimmy Re:Using a comic makes perfect sense (776 comments)

Strangely enough, Jerry cannot keep a straight face. Don't get me wrong, Seinfeld was one of the best shows ever made (if not the very best), but Jerry was probably the worst actor of the bunch. He always looked like he was trying to stop himself from laughing.

State directs sex victims to sex chat

Cocoshimmy Cocoshimmy writes  |  more than 7 years ago

Cocoshimmy (933014) writes "It seems as though the Florida attorney general has been redirecting sex assault victims to a sex chat line. Apparently the government victim helpline number was changed but they didn't update their website and the old number was bought by an adult entertainment company. They finally discovered this when an 8 year old girl came to her mother crying after calling the number."

Cocoshimmy (933014) writes "Nvidia is facing a class action lawsuit for false advertising by not providing stable working drivers for Vista. Nvidia has been quoted here and here as stating that they are closing threads on Nvidia's forum and banning users that: request a response from Nvidia, post that their Nvidia hardware does not work under Vista, post that Nvidia software does not work under Vista, post that Nvidia is guilty of false advertising, or threaten to sue Nvidia. Several disgruntled users have set up their own site for discussing their legal options."
