Record Labels To Pay For Copyright Infringement

TCaptain Re:Net loss, still not a profit (235 comments)

Well very few people or companies can pay out 50 million without calling it a loss no matter what they were doing with it. I mean, even if you have it to lose, you DON'T have it to lose, know what I mean?

However, the point stands, that 50 million has been set aside for a few years as I understand it (I could be wrong, but wasn't it set aside well before the class action started?). Even at a conservative rate of interest, that's a lot of cabbage annually.

They lose that "income" and that capital...but for the years they had it sitting there and NOT paying what they owed, they did benefit largely from their illegal conduct and as such should face much more inflated fines than they have thus far.

Internet Astroturfer Fined $300,000

TCaptain Re:What I really want to know (245 comments)

Why do you care ? What difference does it make ?

I think the point that the parent post was trying to make is that originally, the internet could have been a tool for meaningful and intelligent discourse. You know intelligent conversation? It can be enjoyable at times. Beneficial too.

The attitude shown in your post is that the internet is already meaningless and we should not care about it.

It's sad that 99.9% of forums out there are reduced to meaningless trolling, astroturfing and rampant idiocy. I find it ironic that the technological advances that brought about the internet has done more to glorify stupidity than anything in the last hundred years.

Woman Admits Sending $400K To Nigerian Scammer

TCaptain Re:I'm amazed (857 comments)

Working with the public made me lose faith in human nature and the notion that people are generally sane and smart.

It's funny how, since I've changed careers and no longer work with the public, the internet is working to take up that slack.
