Official "Firefox With Bing" Released

DJLuc1d Re:Whats this "instead of Google" shit? (274 comments)

Oh, ok. So it wasn't the bing search engine taking the results of a google search and putting it into the bing search engine! It was the bing toolbar! How silly to accuse bing of blatant search result theft. They aren't stealing Google's results.... they are just tracking what users click on when they get google results, and putting it into their own search results. Crazy to call that theft, huh? Taking someone else's work, putting it into yours, and then calling it your own.

I can attest that all Catholics are indoctrinated this way.

I can attest that not all Catholics are indoctrinated this way. I can however attest that people with a narrow mindset will say things like this.

European Users Overwhelm Facebook With Data Requests

DJLuc1d Re:they could agree to send by non-CD (214 comments)

I'm pretty sure they do it this way for the same reason most rebates are still mail-in. They don't expect the user to actually do it out of inconvenience. If it was as simple as clicking a button on the internet, more people would be aware of how much data they actually collect.

Ask Slashdot: Do We Need Pseudonymous Social Networking?

DJLuc1d Re:Yes, No (213 comments)

I agree. On one hand you have google plus and facebook - real names encourage responsible behavior. On the other end of the spectrum you get places like 4chan - and nothing beats that in irresponsible behavior. We have more and more anonymous places on the internets every single day - every forum, blogger site, places like reddit and digg, the list goes on. Just once I would like somewhere where I know the name of the person I am talking to and vice versa.

Whoa there killer. He said "I have never had a problem caused by..." He did not say "No one ever, in the entire history of human experience, ever, had had a problem caused by..."

Just take it as personal experience and try not to read into it so much.

GoDaddy Sells To Investor Group

DJLuc1d Re:Silver Lake? (96 comments)

I will actually be glad when silver lake strips the company, fires everyone, takes their 'vested' options, and sells the ravaged carapace of a once awful company to some sucker.

Facebook To Launch In-Browser Video Chat With Skype

DJLuc1d Re:Okay, so if Facebook's biggest competitor (89 comments)

and maybe even use Facebook's search instead of Google.

Stopped reading right there... Either troll or so painfully ignorant that logic would do little good.

Facebook To Launch In-Browser Video Chat With Skype

DJLuc1d Re:Oh great. (89 comments)

Take it from someone who has actually used the service instead of just saw an ad for it. The video chat is not in the way, and in fact is pretty amazing.

Wow. Learn what "communism" is supposed to be. For most people, it is the picture of utopia.

Same could be said of democracy, and look how that keeps turning out. Not trying to trash democracy here, just noting that people keep fucking it up.

Arizona Governor Proposes Flab Tax

DJLuc1d Re:Revenge of the smokers (978 comments)

Most obese people never made a choice to be obese, their lifestyle made them that way.

Really ? Because sitting around watching TV and eating larger portions and junkier food isn't a choice ? Well according to your statement, it's their lifestyle which IS a choice - or at least that aspect is. I also made a choice to go to the gym more and eat healthier - why can't obese people make the same one ? Doesn't even have to be the gym, try talking a walk outside twice a week or skipping the mid afternoon soda.

UN Intervention Begins In Libya

DJLuc1d Re:What's the goal of it? (688 comments)

They're looking to achieve a no fly zone so the guy doesn't keep bombing his own people. We can speculate all we want about how this is another example of the US meddling in other nation's affairs, but the fact of the matter is this guy WAS BOMBING HIS OWN PEOPLE. Even after his 'cease-fire'... you know the one he agreed to right before he began shelling, and sent the tanks to, Benghazi.
