Catch Oil Polluters With Open Source Tools Using the Homebrew Oil Testing Kit

Rujiel Re: Paid oil trolls are censoring posts like this (52 comments)

First you said they don't pay people to trawl through sites, and now the line in the sand has been moved to "they don't troll slashdot". The government does, and as i've shown, oil companies have the resources to do so as well. Be sure to keep telling yourself that every time you have to scroll through a wall of meaningless shaggy dog story filler text, "fuck beta", "blah blah dice.com" and ACs calling each other niggerfaggots or something of the like. Read the comments section on more mainstream articles about the oil industry elsewhere and you'll begin to have a scope of what's really going on here.

US Revamping Its Nuclear Arsenal

Rujiel Re:You sound awfully concerned about (341 comments)

I asked for examples in the US over the last two decades, which you did not provide (because there are none). The last test known in the US was over 20 years ago. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/L...

Would that be horrible? Yes, from the point of view of most humans, but if you take the long view, meh

Guess that's the fundamental difference here--I'm bothered by the notion of nuclear holocaust, and you're not. This sole line explained your entire argument supporting nukes. Getting nuked to death might be ok for you, but I'm not down, so why should you assume it's good enough for everyone else? That's self-importance in a nutshell.

Catch Oil Polluters With Open Source Tools Using the Homebrew Oil Testing Kit

Rujiel Re: Paid oil trolls are censoring posts like this (52 comments)

Because the inadmissable sample is a much cheaper lead that can be done before spending money on the real thing.

Alright buddy, I look forward to your response to this. Occam's razor is a funny thing--it bends every which way depending on how uninformed the user is. After the Deepwater Horizon spill, BP launched a $200 million whitewashing campaign, including a now-defunct youtube channel full of propaganda videos--
http://www.prwatch.org/news/20...
--but there's no way any of that would go towards paid trolls! Oh wait, there totally is.
http://tech.slashdot.org/story...

The slashdot summary doesn't even mention the death threats sent by BP agents in the original article.
http://www.aljazeera.com/indep...
"Billie Garde, BP's deputy ombudsman, in a letter to the Government Accountability Project dated December 18, 2012, stated clearly that "BP America contracts management of its Facebook page to Ogilvy Public Relations" and added, "Ogilvy manages all of BP America's social media matters". According to BP America, Ogilvy has a group of 10 individuals in different time zones that perform comment screening of the page," wrote Garde.

In spite of this, you want to tell me that, even though Samsung pays trolls:
http://www.techmtaa.com/2013/1...
http://www.valuewalk.com/2013/...

Even though telecoms pay trolls:
http://www.vice.com/read/troll...
Even though non-domestic propaganda contractors like Leonie Industries pay trolls to troll domestically:
http://www.npr.org/blogs/thetw...
"USA Today reports that in his campaign against the reporters, Chidiac created "fan sites" with URLs matching the names of the reporter and editor who worked on the stories and then filled those sites with content that criticized the journalist's past reporting."

...even despite all this, you somehow think that Exxon-Mobil, the second richest corporation in the world, wouldn't pay trolls for the purpose of PR cleanup?
If you don't think opinion here makes a difference, then ask yourself why every topic about the NSA is full of endless "fuck beta" comments and huge blobs of meaningless text with bolded sections telling you how to configure your router. Maybe it doesn't make a difference, but it seems like there are many with deep pockets who do not agree with you.

Regardless, you have a lot of reading to do before you're fit to tell anyone about occam's razor re: paid shills.

A low UID? So what? cold fjord, Taco Cowboy, Jeremiah Cornelius: these guys have all been around awhile, and they're some of the most obvious shills of the lot.

And why would someone collecting a an "inadmissable" sample prevent them from collecting another from the exact same area?

Wouldn't be surprised if the guy you're responding to is getting paid to troll as well. Why is he so pissed off about a well-meaning product like this?

US Revamping Its Nuclear Arsenal

Rujiel Re:You sound awfully concerned about (341 comments)

1000 nukes detonated? Please give me some examples of any of the US' warheads being detonated in the last two decades--I really doubt that "over 1000" number. It also goes without saying that nukes in recent times make nukes from WWII look like blips. Good for you, though, being so rosy on nuclear warfare and all.

US Revamping Its Nuclear Arsenal

Rujiel You sound awfully concerned about (341 comments)

the fact that we are capable of destroying the world a lesser numbet of times over due to decaying warheads, yet you seem unconcerned at all by the danger of being so armed. But regardless, you don't seem to see what an enormous waste of money this is, spent on toys that will nullify the very meaning of money if used.

Say Goodbye To That Unwanted U2 Album

Rujiel Re:Perspective (323 comments)

So the problem wasn't that people were killing themselves at Foxconn factories due to their terrible treatment (over a dozen in a year)--the problem was the lack of nets around the perimeter of the building ("unsafe working conditions")? You exemplify first-world hubris.

Rujiel Wow, i kan reed trolling on behalf of apple now? (323 comments)

Labor for sixteen hours because the workers are paid so little that they can't afford food otherwise.. is fucking slavery. Other examples of slavery don't diminish this one.

Treasure Map: NSA, GCHQ Work On Real-Time "Google Earth" Internet Observation

Is that why you trolls are here in full force? Because your handlers think no-one cares? Yet here you paid fucks are here shilling lies, just like always. Fuck you, you lose. Collect your paycheck and kill yourself. You'll be doing a favor to anyone who values the truth.

Web Trolls Winning As Incivility Increases

Rujiel Re:Bullshit (457 comments)

You're demonstrably wrong. The government has been sending paid trolls over the last couple years more than ever. Domestic propaganda was made legal again last year for the first time since the cold war. http://thecable.foreignpolicy....

Who's sending the trolls? Probably not the NSA itself, but the talking points the trolls use are certainly those of the NSA.
