FAA Scans the Internet For Drone Users; Sends Cease and Desist Letters

Quasimodem Re:Suggested response (222 comments)

You don't understand how the government works. As the FAA's work load increases, so does the FAA's workforce, they present statistics on the number of lawbreakers they are trying to bring to justice and the FAA's budget increases, your taxes go up, and eventually you go to jail -- not because you did not operate an unauthorized UAC, but because you fell afoul of the new law against operating an unauthorized UAC simulation on the Internet.

Who Is Liable When a Self-Driving Car Crashes?

Quasimodem Re:Efficiency. (937 comments)

.... There is already a well-established protocol for such behavior. It involves tailgating, 5-25 second bursts of the horn, and (if the weather is warm enough) shouting out the window and some emphatic hand-gestures

Unfortunately, this already well-established protocol has an equally well-known and well-established propensity to induce emphatic hand-gestures, stubbornness, bellicosity and road rage in the receivers of these behavioral protocols.
