Russia Wants To Establish a Permanent Moon Base

Pseudonym Authority Re:The Moon is a Harsh Mistress comes to reality.. (311 comments)

Because you are the guy always going on about the `space nutters', and I didn't get to insult you last time you posted, so I figured now would be a good time.

Some Mozilla Employees Demand New CEO Step Down

Pseudonym Authority Re:It wasn't just private opinion. (824 comments)

Of course not, but how does that matter? Corporations are evil. CEOs are evil. We need communism NOW so that we can disappear anyone who disagrees and finally have a free society. You need to go read your Das Kapital and take a good hard look at your life before it's too late.

Some Mozilla Employees Demand New CEO Step Down

Pseudonym Authority Re:And then there is reality... (824 comments)

Yeah, that's fucking terrible and all, but I can't imagine how that might be relevant to the discussion at hand. Was it just your way of saying `Down with all corporation!' or what?

Creationists Demand Equal Airtime With 'Cosmos'

Pseudonym Authority Re:Creationists Demand Equal Airtime With 'Cosmos' (667 comments)

No. I'm going to give you the benefit of the doubt and assume that you aren't a religious idiot who wants creation `scientists' on the show. This is not a university lecture where it is his job to spoon fed you every last detail. It is an introduction to various topics, and if you are interested, you can go learn more on your own. It functions well (or at least the original did) in enabling people, particularly children, to know that concepts even exist and be able to ask questions about them.

Actual education is not something so low effort that you can get if from a one-hour show with thirteen episodes.

He does not have a valid point and his post is flamebait.

Sons of Anarchy Creator On Google Copyright Anarchy

Pseudonym Authority Re:Is Kim Dotcom a Convicted Felon? (381 comments)

He was convicted of insider trading and embezzlement, and some computer crime I don't really remember. Whatever it was, it was not relevant and used dishonestly by the crybaby idiot in TFA to imply that it was in the context of copyright. Reading this emotion-appealing hyperbole collection makes me kinda regret trying to defend copyright just yesterday.... I hate both sides of this `debate'.

Transhumanist Children's Book Argues, "Death Is Wrong"

Pseudonym Authority Re:Overpopulation? (334 comments)

Fuck evolution and fuck nature. I don't give a shit how species development works or if it will continue to work at all. Intelligence has made evolution obsolete. If you think it's so important, then feel free to line yourself up to die.

Pseudonym Authority Re:Moved to opera (207 comments)

The new Opera is just a butchered Chrome with less features. Please don't use crappy knock-offs made by sellouts.

You refuse to pay what the asker wants and download it without paying anyway, and somehow the RIAA is the glutton. Riiiiiiight~

So what you want is instant gratification because you are unable to wait patiently for six months. Okay, fair enough.

Controversial Torrent Streaming App 'Popcorn Time' Shuts Down, Then Gets Reborn

Pseudonym Authority Re:Entitled Asshole Mentality (199 comments)

Why is it wrong to for them to make a profit? I understand and sympathize with the criticisms of the entertainment industries which constantly pushing for harsher laws, but the other major side of this fight expects it to be a charity. I don't see (very many) people seriously demanding car companies start selling cars at cost.

I don't know about these `artists' of which you speak, but I personally have never gotten any nutrition or shelter from the bubbly feeling I get when I do something nice on the internet.

Controversial Torrent Streaming App 'Popcorn Time' Shuts Down, Then Gets Reborn

Pseudonym Authority Re:Entitled Asshole Mentality (199 comments)

Scientists that give their work away for free are almost invariably funded by the government. May I assume that you have no objection to supporting movie studios by taxes? Of course, to match this completely, the government should also have some say in what gets funded, just as with scientific research.

Tim Cook: If You Don't Like Our Energy Policies, Don't Buy Apple Stock

Pseudonym Authority Re:Unlimited personal liability? Insanity (348 comments)

Stockholders do not manage the company. They vote for the board of directors, which manages the rest. Only in special circumstances, like an offer to privatize the company, do the votes have any direct effect.

Then they aren't held accountable for what they told the company to do.

Should citizen voters be liable for prison time if they elect a senator who turns out to be corrupt?

Ask Slashdot: How Do You To Tell Your Client That His "Expert" Is an Idiot?

Pseudonym Authority Re:Its Easy (384 comments)

Ah, so it is; looks like I won't be putting my /. profile and excellent karma on my resume after all.... I got so caught up getting my <s and my >s right on the first try that I completely forgot that it wasn't the same as a regular closing tag. I've also decided to learn HTML past the XHTML that I picked up long ago. To anyone who was looking at my post for insight into the inner workings of web technologies: please forgive me -- I have failed you.

Ask Slashdot: How Do You To Tell Your Client That His "Expert" Is an Idiot?

Pseudonym Authority Re:Its Easy (384 comments)

Yeah, I realized that after I hit submit. I wrote the first scenario after the second, then realized that `contractor' would be ambiguous and changed it to `carpenter' without thinking about it. It was wrong.

I am sorry.

Also, I was forced to use non-compliant markup (<br> rather than </br>) because SlashCode is shit, I forgot to use `TeX Quotes', and I left out an example of a shitty contractor that I had been planning on including.

I apologize for this as well.

Ask Slashdot: How Do You To Tell Your Client That His "Expert" Is an Idiot?

Pseudonym Authority Re:Its Easy (384 comments)

I'm not saying to write unfair contracts, just one that says "contractor will work with the client to implement X in exchange for Y$ per hour". Then, when they hire a consultant that gives them a 5000 page report detailing why they'll get 1000% better performance if they prefix all their classes with the client companies name, don't argue with them; just do it. If you were a carpenter and the homeowners changed their minds from White #001042051 to White #001042052, you wouldn't argue back that the difference is physically imperceivable to the human eye, you'd add a molecule of black to ten gallons of white and charge for it.

I'm not arguing that you should be out to do a shitty job and suck money from customers, just that if they want to piss money away, let them piss some on you.

Youtube Blocks Parts of Youtube from Corea

Pseudonym Authority Pseudonym Authority writes  |  more than 2 years ago

Pseudonym Authority writes "Google has disabled user uploads and comments on the Korean version of its YouTube video portal in reaction to a new law that requires the real name of a contributor be listed along each contribution they make.

The rules, part of a Cyber Defamation Law, came into effect on April 1 for all sites with over 100,000 unique visitors per day. It requires that users provide their real name and national ID card number."
