Ask Slashdot: Do You Still Trust Bitcoin?

Bennett Haselton's Response To That "Don't Talk to Cops" Video

Raven42rac I thought the point was pretty clear. (871 comments)

Don't talk to the police if you believe yourself to be the target of an investigation because it is your right and you're a rank amateur in the law, police and DA's are not. If it progresses past a certain point of trying to get you to catch yourself in a lie, hire a lawyer/PD.

Yahoo CEO Says It Would Be Treason To Decline To Cooperate With the NSA

Raven42rac Re:Treason.. or... (524 comments)

I feel like this is kind of misleading, I get the impression Ms. Meyer is matter of factly stating the opinions the courts have come to and the ways the laws currently exist, and not providing a personal opinion. /. isn't journalism, it's a blog, but misleading sensationalist titles are pretty good clickbait. Worked on me.
