Proposed Penalty For UK Hackers Who "Damage National Security": Life

X.25 Re:Don't do the crime (164 comments)

I know this is a radical idea, and I'm just spitballing here, but maybe the part about unauthorized act being done a computer should be a hint. If it's not your computer or your system, don't try to get into it.

Or are we going to use excuses as to why it's acceptable to try and get into someone else's equipment when you're not supposed to then whine about the penalty when you're found out?

How can you people be so shallow?

Did you even read anything about the topic you are commenting on?

U.S. Threatened Massive Fine To Force Yahoo To Release Data

X.25 Re:Yahoo knew fine was a bluff (223 comments)

How can you fine someone for not cooperating in activities that the government refused to even admit existed?

Because people in "free world", over the course of last 40-50 years, allowed governments to heavy regulate every aspect of their lives. That includes companies too, obviously.

So, whether you know it or not, you are breaking laws and regulations every single day. Literally.

All it takes is for them to have a reason to go after you.

This is one of the reasons why "I don't care if government spies on me, I have nothing to hide" attitude is beyond retarded. But people don't understand it until shit happens to them.

Then it's too late.

Ontario Government Wants To Regulate the Internet

X.25 Re:Government doesn't get it. (184 comments)

Government doesn't get it. They don't control

Ermm... you are wrong.

They are controlling it, and they have been working on controlling Internet for years now.

Although many people used to say "They can't win", they actually did win some time ago.

This is a denial phase, I guess.

BBC: ISPs Should Assume VPN Users Are Pirates

X.25 You wanted globalization? You got it. (363 comments)

Also, I do not know a single person that uses VPN in order to access 'content'.

I am wondering when people will start realizing that Internet is dead, and has been for at least 2 years.

The Argument For a Hypersonic Missile Testing Ban

X.25 Re:They will just cheat anyway (322 comments)

Jesus: Russia signed a treaty to not invade Ukraine, in exchange for Ukraine's nuclear disarmament. Ukraine disarmed. First nation to do so in the history of nuclear weapons. Then Russia invaded. You want to trust them with another treaty? Suckers!

I seriously can't figure out what is wrong with you people.

Russia invaded? Do you mind showing some evidence for those claims, or you just like spreading shit that you read in mainstream media?

You know how invasion looks like? If you are not sure, you can always take a look at invasion of Iraq by 'coallition of the willing' to get the idea. Or you can also look at invasion of Kuwait by Iraq to get an idea. There are many examples.

But pretending that civili war (and I've lived through 2 of them, so I kind of know much better than you how it starts/looks like/ends) is an invasion just shows hypocrisy and ignorance.

The Argument For a Hypersonic Missile Testing Ban

X.25 Re:Good timing for this suggestion NOT! (322 comments)

Also what is happening in the Ukraine is a clear message about what happens to countries stupid enough to take Nuclear Disarmament seriously.

What happens in such cases?

Military gets used against civilian population?

Hackers Behind Biggest-Ever Password Theft Begin Attacks

X.25 Hahaha (107 comments)

Of course, it could not been any of thousand brute force attacks that is happening every day.


It was a brute force attack by bad baby eating state sponsored Russian hackers, specifically using the imaginary end-of-the-world password list.

Of course, neither the "1.2 billion passwords" list, nor the "they're using it against Namecheap" events were/are cheap advertising.

Put A Red Cross PSA In Front Of the ISIS Beheading Video

X.25 But it's ok to view videos of drone/air strikes (300 comments)

Or videos of disasters that affected hundreds if not thousands of people.

Or videos of killings in civil (and other) wars.

Or videos of plane crashes.

And list goes on and on and on.

But hey - make sure noone sees the video of beheading done by very same people US government has been supporting.

Because that could make US government look more bad (as if it's even possible anymore).

Hackers Claim PlayStation Network Take-Down

X.25 Re:Should of never got rid of other OS and outsorc (97 comments)

Mainly because I don't see MSN Live players complaining about loss of service, do you? XBox owners don't have any reason to fear losing next weekend services, while PSN users will live the week worrying about.

Yeah, I can assure you that Playstation owners can't sleep properly and all they think during the work hours is whether PSN will be down next weekend.

Are you 12?

"Magic Helmet" For F-35 Ready For Delivery

X.25 Re:Watch the F-35 get blown out of the skies (184 comments)

F-35 + electronic warfare will destroy the russian missile batteries

I certainly hope, for your sake, that your generals are smarter than you.

If you're going to throw around ad hominem attacks coupled with suppositions, you should attack the the Russian leader for hating the Ukraine for its perceived turn towards the power that has warrants out for his son.

Goebbels is proud.
