FBI Warns Industry of Chinese Cyber Campaign

Rujiel FBI planted child porn (105 comments)

This is easy. See: Freedom Hosting.
http://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/2013/09/fbi-admits-what-we-all-suspected-it-compromised-freedom-hostings-tor-servers/
The FBI had compromised this guy's servers for months, and then viola, there's child porn on there. The fact that the dudes you know from the business seem like right ol' chaps is no reflection on the nature of the FBI or its sordid, filthy history.
You realize the FBI is constantly arming and training wannabe terrorists to the brink of action, right? http://occupywallst.org/forum/...

FBI Warns Industry of Chinese Cyber Campaign

Rujiel More to fear from the FBI than the chinese (105 comments)

The chinese might break into your secure email server, but they won't plant child porn on it in an attempt to incriminate you. The FBI, on the other hand..

Wind Power Is Cheaper Than Coal, Leaked Report Shows

Rujiel Re:XFD @ wind subsidies costly cf. oil (608 comments)

Volume is crucial in measuring how much taxpayer money goes to which entity. The total subsidies obtained by some of the richest entities in the world make solar and wind subsidies look like peanuts

Wind Power Is Cheaper Than Coal, Leaked Report Shows

Rujiel Re:XFD @ wind subsidies costly cf. oil (608 comments)

Per KWh.. but not per total volume, which is what OP was arguing. It's also worth noting that we're largely comparing ridiculous freebies given to companies for simply existing or manufacturing in the US--funds that are never obligated to go towards any R&D--to tax breaks given in part to individuals for developing renewables on their own property.

Rujiel XFD @ wind subsidies costly cf. oil (608 comments)

Wind energy subsidies amd tax breaks are miniscule compared to those provided to fossil fuels. What fox news incubation tank did you climb out of?

Why the Trolls Will Always Win

Rujiel Paid guvment trolls clogging thiss thread (717 comments)

True fact: paid shills are filling this thread with nonsense in the hopes that they themselves won't be discussed. And they're not even good it it! This happens every time paid trolls are discussed. It would be ironic if it weren't deliberate.

No Nobel For Nick Holonyak Jr, Father of the LED

Rujiel BTW--why are paid trolls all over this thread (276 comments)

Or maybe they're unpaid interns? Given your apparent propensity to take stereotypical heartless machiavellian establishment positions, I figured you'd be able to inform me.

No Nobel For Nick Holonyak Jr, Father of the LED

Rujiel Re: Backing brutal dictators--not a bad idea? (276 comments)

"Death squads were a great idea!" Thanks for outing yourself as a wretch. Hopefully in your lifetime, you and your family can be victims to someone else's twisted ideology, just as you've deemed those civilians to be worthy of torture-death according to your own. If it's good enough for the third world, it's absolutely good enough for you.

Rujiel Kissinger fanboys censoring the truth? (276 comments)

Who the fuck would vote this down? I find it hard to believe that anyone in this day and age is so ignorant about the Nixon administration's murderous involvement in south america.

Rujiel Backing brutal dictators--not a bad idea? (276 comments)

Backing corporate dictators in their use of state terror and death squads "isn't a bad idea'? 30,000+ Argentinian activists, unionists and political prisoners tortured to death--not a bad idea? Brazilian death squads--not a bad idea? Backing Pinochet as he disappears thousands of people--not a bad idea?

Seems like either you're entirely ignorant about Operation Condor or you're a compassionless wretch. You're saying that to fight Lenin's ghost, we should have broken a few eggs. What a perfect example of first world hubris and thoughtlessness.

Chrome 38 Released: New APIs and 159 Security Fixes

Rujiel Chrome is crap now. Switched to opera. (55 comments)

Around when they added the recent device emulation options in developer tools, the beta channel experience has been terrible. A search bug in devtools renders 0 results for virtually everything, and a new tab takes several seconds to open. Oh how the mighty have fallen.

The Secret Goldman Sachs Tapes

Rujiel Re: Sweet troll bro (201 comments)

I can smell bullshit, and thorium is a common panacea touted by pro-nuclear trolls who won't accept an energy alternative that is not completely centralized. It's a phony solution. if you want an example, see: anthony watts, and the sockpuppets that fill his blog comments section

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 (342 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?
