Aereo To SCOTUS: Shut Us Down and You Shut Down Cloud Storage

WillyWanker Re:Over the air (342 comments)

The problem is that if they don't complain about this and try to shut it down what's to stop cable companies from doing to same thing and stop paying billions a year in retransmission fees? The TV industry makes a shitload of money from cable TV providers. They certainly do not want to see that revenue stream dry up.

Aereo To SCOTUS: Shut Us Down and You Shut Down Cloud Storage

WillyWanker Re:Not sure how I feel about this one (342 comments)

Unlikely to happen, despite them saying it's something they might do. There are millions of people that use antennas to watch broadcast TV. Killing the OTA feeds would be cutting off their noses to spite their faces, especially if they think doing so is going to drive people to start paying for cable TV.

No, because you're dealing with 30 generations. You don't need to do it all at once.

Instead of trying to move 40,000 people 5 light years away you move 100 along with 39,900 sperm and egg samples.

Some Mozilla Employees Demand New CEO Step Down

WillyWanker Re:Would we... (824 comments)

He's a bad person for supporting prop 8 because prop 8 discriminates against gay people. Period.

Some Mozilla Employees Demand New CEO Step Down

WillyWanker Re:Would we... (824 comments)

No, the implication was that a comparison between prop 8 and the KKK is invalid because the KKK has routinely partaken in the deaths of black people while prop 8 has not. I rejected this assertion because the reality is that gay people are murdered for being gay, and while prop 8 may not be directly responsible for these actions, anything that promotes discrimination also fosters the attitude that it's ok to beat up or kill someone you perceive to be gay. It's not.

But nice try on the strawman argument. Better luck next time.

Well scientifically there are 3 races of humans, but I'm not going to argue the point with you.

Discrimination is discrimination, no matter who the target minority group is. And it's not like gay people aren't beaten and killed simply for being gay.

Which, mind you, is perfectly legal in most states, for a boss to fire you due to your personal beliefs -- or any reason really that doesn't put you into a protected class.
