Skeptics Would Like Media To Stop Calling Science Deniers 'Skeptics'

Megol Re:News at 11.. (621 comments)

The thing is that most "crackers" are very skilled and as much hackers as those who don't do illegal things.
If one person with a certain level of skills choose to apply those skills on illegal stuff they still have those skills.
A math genius using math to swindle people is still a math genius.
A soldier using his training to murder people still have military training.

Why? Excepting the script kiddies they are in most cases hackers.

What Will Microsoft's "Embrace" of Open Source Actually Achieve?

Megol Re:implicit tone (215 comments)

Like that of promoting the IBM PC compatible from a limited market to be the industrial standard architecture (by making sure they could sell MSDOS to anyone that wanted it)?
Or like that of "forcing" hardware manufacturers to improve their products (by helping to design and standardize misc. enhancements to the ISA)?

Most things aren't black and white unless one is bipolar...

Single Group Dominates Second Round of Anti Net-Neutrality Comment Submissions

Megol Re:I'd expect Fawkes masks to start making stateme (198 comments)

Small town (~15k population):
I pay $14 for 100Mbps up/down via fiber.
Relatives in the same town also have fiber, from a different ISP, (even using a different fiber network(!)) for about the same price.

IIRC there are actually 3 different fiber lines used to connect this small place.

Sony Pictures Leak Reveals Quashed Plan To Upload Phony Torrents

Megol Re:Best idea ever! (130 comments)

Spoken like a true pedophile. Given that you are talking about "sexual partner" of children I think it's safe to say that you either transitioned to rape or is likely to do so soon.
Try to get some help before you ruin the life of innocent children, while most pedophiles can't be helped there are those that actually can learn to control their sadistic urges.

Sony Pictures Leak Reveals Quashed Plan To Upload Phony Torrents

Megol Re:Best idea ever! (130 comments)

Bull. The majority of pedophiles transition between fantasies to actual rapes. The pattern is well known to law enforcement and mental health professionals.
The only realistic alternative for allowing pedophiles to be free is to force them to have absolutely no contact with children.

French Cabbies Say They'll Block Paris Roads On Monday Over Uber

Megol Re:Ah, yes... (295 comments)

That seems to be the standard type of protest in France. It's a popular pastime among the French farmers to block roads with manure as one example.

Don't get me wrong - some things should be protested - but some thinking about _how_ to protest could lead to better results for everyone...

MIT Removes Online Physics Lectures and Courses By Walter Lewin

Megol Re:Sexual Harassment shouldn't cost us knowledge (416 comments)

WTF?!? Are you on some drugs or what? Or maybe you should be on some?

There is no hidden agendas, no "ivory tower" shit and no Nobel prize associated with this. It's just in your head.

MIT doesn't want to be associated with this person due to his conduct. They can't be forced to be.

It's that simple. Your paranoid delusions are just that.

MIT Removes Online Physics Lectures and Courses By Walter Lewin

Megol Re:Just wondering... (416 comments)

Eh... No. Yes many experiments were sadistic but they yielded information that is still used today. One example is how to treat different kinds of bullet wounds*, another how to treat people exposed to cold water** and/or how to increase survival chances if exposed to the same. There are others.

(* the Nazis simply shot people, added different kinds of contamination and then tried to treat the wounds)
(** they forced people into ice baths using different kinds of protection for different lengths of time and then tried to keep them alive)

Node.js Forked By Top Contributors

Megol Re:Joyent unfit to lead them? (254 comments)

So what's wrong? It's one thing to accidentally have (things that can be seen as) sexist texts in a product but the idea that correcting that is somehow wrong is unbelievable idiotic. There is no logical reason to resist the changes which leads to the conclusion that the person in question either is someone that want more control of the project than is reasonable (complaining and blocking edits just to be in control) or that he is indeed sexist.

As for you and your coworkers the only remaining reason to be upset is if you are sexist idiots.
