Doxing Victim Zoe Quinn Launches Online "Anti-harassment Task Force"

Karganeth Re:Slashdot stance on #gamergate (686 comments)

Not really. Much like how calling someone a "keyboard warrior" doesn't imply keyboards are bad, calling someone a "social justice warrior" isn't meant to imply that social justice is bad.

Researchers "Solve" Texas Hold'Em, Create Perfect Robotic Player

Karganeth Not Solved (340 comments)

http://forumserver.twoplustwo.... The author admits that the nemesis (perfect enemy) of this bot would have a win rate of 0.05bb/100 (this is extremely small). So it is not technically solved, but it's close enough.

Researchers "Solve" Texas Hold'Em, Create Perfect Robotic Player

Karganeth Re:Perfect? Really? (340 comments)

It will never work like you think it does. It will never fold 100% to a bet in any scenario. It will fold a probability between 0 and 100. Maybe 30% maybe 70%. It is the perfect strategy in the sense that even though you know the strategy entirely you can still lose. I can tell you my entire tic tac toe strategy. And yet you will still be unable to defeat me, though you may lose if you make mistakes. This is how the bot is. You can only hope to draw with it.

Why the Trolls Will Always Win

Karganeth Re:WHY are men trying to scare women away from gam (728 comments)

They aren't. Some women see people attacking them and assume "They're attacking me because I'm a woman". And the media loves to play this narrative. The real reason people get harassed isn't because of their gender, it's because they're idiots.

Protesters Blockade Microsoft's Seattle Headquarters Over Tax Breaks

Karganeth Re:Voliunteer workers for the IRS? (246 comments)

I'm tired of hearing this "companies exist only to maximize profits" garbage. Companies are controlled by people. People do not exist to maximize how much money they can make, therefore they are free to choose to control a company in a way such that it does something less profitable but more moral. There's never any proof that it's why companies exist anyway. It's just an 'edgy' way to look at society ('companies don't care about you, they only want profits'), but where is the proof that companies must maximize profits at all costs? It's just always asserted without any evidence or reasoning. It is a net loss to society if all companies exploited loopholes and so forth.

Bill Gates Wants To Remake the Way History Is Taught. Should We Let Him?

Karganeth Re:So long as it is consential (363 comments)

Why do you have such a problem with the state compelling you to pay for something you might not like? That's the entire basis of the tax system. From what you've written it seems to follow that you're against all taxes.

Anita Sarkeesian, Creator of "Tropes vs. Women," Driven From Home By Trolls

Karganeth Re:Slashdot comments indicative of the problem (1262 comments)

Why is it, when faced with stories like this, is your first instinct to claim that the woman lied or made it up?

Because that woman's name is Anita Sarkeesian. And fwiw I don't think she made it up but I do realize that she THRIVES off conflict like this. She WANTS this shit to happen to her to justify her bullshit. She creates unrest then profits off the conflict.

Karganeth Re:Slashdot comments indicative of the problem (1262 comments)

Why is it, when faced with stories like this, is your first instinct to claim that the woman lied or made it up?

Iti s not because a woman wrote it, its because SARKEESIAN wrote it. FYI she's a fucking professional flamebaiter. She riles people up by creating the most offensive and inflammtry, and MISLEADING videos then cries to the press "help, people are being mean to me". She asked for it and she got it. She WANTS this publicity because it further helps her continue this cycle of bullshit. Do your homework on her before being a SJW (ending your 'people be being mean to her because she woman' ) and you will quickly understand the hatred for her.

1080p is not meaningless. Turn your screen to 3/4ths of its native resolution and see how meaningless that is to you.

Kids With Wheels: Should the Unlicensed Be Allowed To 'Drive' Autonomous Cars?

Karganeth Re:Well, of course. (437 comments)

What a great argument. Something going potentially wrong is a great reason to ban that thing outright. That's why they banned six year olds from walking around - they could potentially fall down and serverely harm themselves in the process. LEARN WHEN PRINCIPLES MATTER. You need statistics. Not principles to win your argument.

Not instantly. Monkeys don't type infinitely fast. It would still take time for each monkey's key press.

Michael Abrash Joins Oculus, Calls Facebook 'Final Piece of the Puzzle'

Karganeth Facebook is written in php (232 comments)

Keep that in mind. Facebook is not a company of technological excellence (Apple) or software excellence (Google), but simply got lucky for being the social site that everyone went to.
