Former HP CEO Carly Fiorina Considering US Presidential Run

Yunzil Re:Um, what? (418 comments)

It is now well established that Obamacare was brought into existence by threat and fraud.

I see. So being passed by the established legal process is now considered "threat and fraud".

How To End Online Harassment

Yunzil Re:Not this shit again (834 comments)

So it is about Zoe Quinn after all.

Yes, because she's the one that started this whole mess. And it has nothing to do with her being a woman. It has to do with her being a hypocrite, a bad game developer, and an all-around terrible person.

Hope this helps.

Yunzil Re: Reminder of who not to credit (151 comments)

Torvalds: I Made Community-Building Mistakes With Linux

Yunzil Re:Git is an example of Linus Torvalds at his wors (387 comments)

Since this is open-source, and you think the documentation is poor, why don't you fix it?

Good job falling back on the old "Well why don't you just fix it yourself then, smarty man" argument. Congratulations, you are an example of the hostile community we're talking about.

Confidence Shaken In Open Source Security Idealism

Yunzil Re:Speedy fixes and obvious "relay all to Microsof (265 comments)

As ESR famously said (but with context this time):
given enough eyeballs, all bugs are shallow.

Addendum: Of course, it might take 20 years for anyone to notice, because everyone is assuming that someone else is looking at it, but whatever.

Intel Drops Gamasutra Sponsorship Over Controversial Editorials

Yunzil Re:GamerGate is about sex, not corruption (724 comments)

But then again, the whole thing about GamerGate was punishing a game developer for the crimes of game development while female, having sex while female,

No, actually, it was about exposing the hypocrisy of a terrible person (who happens to be female, although that was irrelevant).

What To Expect With Windows 9

Yunzil Re:A few things... (545 comments)

1. Really? I want the exact opposite of that. I don't give a crap what's going on under the hood or what the filesystem is doing. Pull a blanket over it, I don't want to see it.

2. OK

3. If they allow it you'll get people here posting "Windows is so dumb, it let me copy an mp3 to my phone that it couldn't play!"

4. See #3.

5. OK
