For Now, UK Online Pirates Will Get 4 Warnings -- And That's It

Demena Re:Except... (143 comments)

Stop digging? You are digging fast enough for both of us. I am not and never claimed to be a lawyer. Nor do I need to be. I have access to a sufficiency. Not that I have consulted them over this as I would not trust them as most of them since they have other specialities.

My sentence was meant to be read as your current one does not seem to be that good. Yet you fastened on a less likely alternative and latched on to it with certainty as if it were an absolute truth.

And there is the issue, 'certainty'. The reason I mentioned common law is that common law is flexible and evolves. There seem to be a number of people saying that this all means that the government has given up. Do not be certain about that. I am suspicious, paranoid if you would and consider it sensible to be so. Time will show the truth or falsity of this. Nothing else.

You are quite welcome to the last word.

Demena Re:Except... (143 comments)

Commercial or not it is a legally proscribed act from which you obtain a benefit, I also point out that the UK law is based on common law not constitutional law. If you disagree with me then ask another lawyer. Relying on that reasoning when caught will not work.

Oso Disaster Had Its Roots In Earlier Landslides

Demena Re:Just noticed your earlier comment... (63 comments)

I followed the link you gave me and I am not sure that I agree. Anyone using a female pseudonym for over five years is going to wind up a little gender bent even if they did not start out that way. If it acts like a duck, quacks like a duck, walks like a duck and is treated as a duck then it becomes a duck. Neuroplasticity and all that. But even greater than the number of gender bent is the number of gender confused. Transition is not the objective of all tg people. That would be far from the truth. I think I would like to stand by what I said, i.e.. that by all means maintain and continue your arguments with this person but I would recommend not chastising someone for gender issues or expressed gender issues. No one wants to be tg. Nobody would choose it.

Demena Well. (130 comments)

Snowden gave nothing to Russia or China. Even the head of the NSA has stated that. He gave nothing to any national party. It makes me wonder what you are. But I doubt you will ever be a little star.

But there is a benefit gained (profit is the wrong word). The benefit gained from the supply of the blocks you have already received is getting g the remaining blocks.

When you use a torrent you are also sending data blocks. So even if you leach you are still "supplying" while you are downloading. This make the situation civilly more precarious and becomes criminal too.

Climate Change Skeptic Group Must Pay Damages To UVA, Michael Mann

Demena Re:Modern Day Anti-Evolutionists (497 comments)

Not very. But ecologies had time to adjust and build. This rise is very fast. Slightly different starting conditions can lead to greatly differing outcomes.

Climate Change Skeptic Group Must Pay Damages To UVA, Michael Mann

Demena Re:Jane is Lonny Eachus is a pathological liar (497 comments)

Gender is not binary. There are, I believe, quite a large number of transgender, transexual and gender fluid people in the slashdot community. I do not know about the person you are arguing with but I suspect they should and are losing their arguments. However if you attack them on the basis of expressed gender then you are going to alienate a lot of transgender people if your attitude to them is that they are prima facie liars. I would think it best to drop the gender issue.

Obama Administration Says the World's Servers Are Ours

Demena Re: Well. (749 comments)

I will not argue with you. I am not a US citizen. I thank you for your considered reply. This observation often results in heavy Down rating and accusations of trolling or anti Americanism. Which is not really true. There has been much to admire about the United States but I am not optimistic in the way it is going. Which of your founders said (more or less). ...you have a republic if you can keep it?

Demena Well. (749 comments)

If anyone ever bothered to check the dictionary definition they would have to agree with you. The US has fit the definition of a fascist state for a century now.

Demena Re: Maybe, maybe not. (749 comments)

However, I can not reference but I believe that there are agreements in place that would cover this area. That is my belief although I could be wrong. Trouble is that US law has become self contradictory in many areas. Who knows what overrides what nowadays. US law has become whim and whimsy.
