What if someone makes malware to make the phone dial premium-rate telephone numbers? Is this the return of the autodialler-type-virus?

Larry Sanger Tells FBI Wikipedia Distributes "Child Pornography"

CommunistHamster Re:Not in this case (572 comments)

I do acknowledge, though, that there is a real problem with today image processing software such as Photoshop. It is possible to edit a photo of a real child so that it is impossible to know its origin - a real photo depicting someone or an original drawing.

If it's that hard to tell, the point of making any original photos is moot. Unless these edited pictures are just a form of encryption, and the pedos then reverse the photoshop filters on their end... but still, that's no different from distributing encrypted CP, so what's the issue?

Larry Sanger Tells FBI Wikipedia Distributes "Child Pornography"

CommunistHamster Re:No conflict of interest there (572 comments)

I see two problems with your analogy. Crashing a car is far more expensive than producing CP, so much so that it would be hard to justify ever doing it intentionally.

I don't know, I imagine all the underworld stuff involved with CP production is pretty expensive.

In addition, people don't make money off car crash photos; they do make money from CP.

But what if people made money off car crash photos, what would you think of the analogy then? With respect to the supposed implausibility of a car crash fetish.... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crash_(1996_film)

Survival-Horror Genre Going Extinct?

CommunistHamster Re:Left4Dead?! (166 comments)

FEAR wasn't scary, really. Overdone, scripted, japanese little girls with super-gore effects just don't phase me, I guess. The ending was well done, but still not scary. Now STALKER, there's a scary game.

Command & Conquer FPS Canceled

CommunistHamster Re:Aww. (83 comments)

The genre was called Action-Strategy. It is dead now, sadly. A remake of Battlezone with modern technology would be pretty cool.

Organizers said the rocket and the individual capsules containing the ashes were in good condition and would be mounted on plaques and returned to the families.
Reuters story here. Does this bode well for future missions of its type? Would you choose a suborbital memorial after this incident?"
