Google Blocks 'Innocence of Muslim' Video In Indonesia and India

Nazlfrag It's phenomenally rubbish (484 comments)

Noone would be trying to watch this without the Streisand effect. I can't see how anyone could take such a terrible piece of filmmaking seriously. Hell, it doesn't even make fucking sense most of the time, it's just so disjointed and jarring. Blocking it worldwide would be doing humanity a favour.

The Story Behind Australia's CSIRO Wi-Fi Claims

Nazlfrag Re:Holy Flamebait Batman! (161 comments)

Pity that 'someone else' tried to, failed, and instead agreed to license the CSIRO technology under royalty agreements, then reneged and failed to pay royalties. Now they have to follow through with that agreement and pay what they were due.

GPL, Copyleft Use Declining Fast

Nazlfrag Re:BSD license was always more permissive, so grea (808 comments)

Sure. It's like the grown-ups drive around in real cars while out in the garage the kids argue over who made what on their go-kart whose design they copied from the kid up the street.

Windows 8 Store Will Allow Open Source Apps

Nazlfrag Re:Not GPL (333 comments)

No, one guy has interpreted the MS terms to come to that conclusion without explaining why. I can see nothing in the MS terms that would disallow GPL, but I do see terms that explicitly allow GPL as it is an OSI approved license.

So I ask you, why can GPL not be used?

Iran Shuts Down US Virtual Embassy

Just the one with the most prisoners. And legal bribery of your politicians. And more military than basically the world combined. Yeah, just your average modern utopia.

What is Your position on Climate Change?

Nazlfrag Re:Bah! (695 comments)

It's rising about a foot per century at the moment, so hopefully it wont start rapidly rising. Looks like you'll need to do something though in the next century I guess yet I have no doubt you can rise to the task. Your engineers have risen to every challenge so far, and it's a marvel of the modern age. If any country should give it's trust to science and engineering, and be confident in mitigating any danger it's you guys, you do it so well.

How Can I Justify Using Red Hat When CentOS Exists?

Nazlfrag Re:Support them from your own money (666 comments)

Why get it when CentOS fits the bill perfectly? Apart from the GP's rationale, it's also helping to build the profile and perception of CentOS if a major CIO advocates it. Congratulations are in order to the CentOS team for their great work, the fact it was even considered let alone requested is a testament to their excellence. Bravo.

Inspector General Investigated For Muzzling Inconvenient Science

Nazlfrag Re:Global warming is a lie! (276 comments)

So, pray tell, if physicists can't comment on climate science, why is the APS releasing statements about it in the first place, especially ones with such unscientific terms? Nothing in science is incontrovertible, the scientific method requires that any and all theorems can and should be questioned.

Inspector General Investigated For Muzzling Inconvenient Science

Nazlfrag Re:Global warming is a lie! (276 comments)

Well his other complaint is that somehow the mass of a proton is up for question while climate science is incontrivertable. Either they're both up for grabs, or the scientific method doesn't apply to climate science.

Former Wikileaks Spokesman Destroyed Documents

Nazlfrag Re:Tragic... (469 comments)

When is it ok to kill a human being? When is it ok to kill a dog? When is it ok to kill a rat? When is it ok to kill a spider? When is it ok to kill an ant?

When you are defending yourself or innocent parties from an existential threat to life.

What's the Carbon Footprint of Bicycling?

Nazlfrag Re:seriously..? (542 comments)

Calling carbon a pollutant, well mislabelling CO2 as carbon and then calling it a pollutant is far more disingenious. You may as well call the ecosystem the carbonsystem. To say that addition of carbon dioxide to the environment is bad for life on earth relies entirely on 100 year predictions of temperature and has nothing to do with any biological fact.

What's the Carbon Footprint of Bicycling?

Nazlfrag Re:seriously..? (542 comments)

Well you breath in ~400 ppm CO2 and breath out ~4000ppm CO2, so I guess it's TEN TIMES BACKGROUND LEVELS!!!

It's almost as if every molecule of every living creature contains carbon which was once atmospheric CO2. You - yes YOU - are made of the flesh of the animal made from the fruit of the plant made from the sunlight and CO2. Your entire body is a carbon footprint, a carbon spewing machine. Please turn yourself in to the nearest recycling centre.

What's the Carbon Footprint of Bicycling?

Nazlfrag Re:First! (542 comments)

There's more reason to question clean energy than that strawman though. Alternatives to gas and coal are expensive and difficult. Realistically solar and wind can only ever provide a fraction of what we need, hydro is regional and situational and has its own environmental issues, as does nuclear, and many such as tidal, thorium and geothermal are a long way from being effective. The easiest way for a western economy to reduce their CO2 output today, right now, is to go nuclear or to build modern coal fired plants which are far cleaner burners than the existing installed base. Both of these options are polictically unpalatable to environmentalists though, so don't expect them to happen anytime soon.

Climate Unit Releases Virtually All Remaining Data

Nazlfrag Re:Most of the Data is Freely Available (507 comments)

Yep, even skeptics agree that the world has been in a warming trend over the last 160 years, which is about the limit of the instrumental record in most places around the world. Problem is, 85% of mankinds CO2 contributions have happened in only the last 60 years, leaving 100 years of natural warming. All that is apparent is a natural trend continuing that existed before mankind could have possibly influenced events. In any case, CO2 is just one forcing among hundreds, and is easily eclipsed by H20. What's next, a ban on steam? Demonizing CO2, the giver of life, into pollution was the worst mistake the green movement has ever made.

I'm saddened that slashdot is so empty of a real scientific mindset. Since when was reproducing and verifying others experimentation anti-scientific instead of the very bedrock, the foundation of the scientific method?

If WikiLeaks Suspect Manning Is Legally Guilty, What Punishment?

Nazlfrag Re:Freedom is the price you pay (359 comments)

Yes, I'm saying military service carries with it an obedience to the state as the ultimate contract, and if that contract is broken the harshest penalties must apply. Anything else would create a weak and ineffectual military force, and there would be no more state. What he did to break that contract was moral in one respect yet immoral in his service to the state. Nobody forced him into that contract, but once it's taken and oaths are sworn you must uphold those oaths or face the consequence. There is no other way that I can concieve to retain a strong self-sustaining atate.

If WikiLeaks Suspect Manning Is Legally Guilty, What Punishment?

Nazlfrag Freedom is the price you pay (359 comments)

What I think Manning did was marvellous, heroic, of great benefit to society and noble. I voted life, as I don't believe in the death penalty. He was military personnel, he knew what he was getting into. Anything less than life for treason would be idiotic in a military court. If he were civillian, it would be a different story. I'm still proud of what he did, but he won't be free. I should add I think he's being held inhumanely, and perhaps should be freed on those grounds.

Australian website bans Australians

Nazlfrag Nazlfrag writes  |  more than 4 years ago

Nazlfrag (1035012) writes "Earlier this month the blog and discussion forum ZGeek was sued for $42 million AUD over a users comment. The plaintiffs are aspiring movie producers who claim to have lost a movie deal due to a 9/11 conspiracy discussion thread. Even though the initial lawsuit has been thrown out and the company complied with lawyers demands by taking down the offending posts it is believed the plaintiffs will file suit again. In addition to suing the forum, in an Australian first they have been granted an injunction to force the ISPs to disclose the IP addresses of the two posters involved. Due to the risk of incurring even greater legal costs the company is closing its doors in Australia and will ban their fellow countrymen from posting there again."
