Anonymous Claims They Will Release "The Interview" Themselves

aevan Re:Marketing? (228 comments)

Except... we do that. The majority of Americans have not bombed a foreign country, wiretapped, whatever. Cue the cries of that though, whenever almost anything regarding the United States comes up. Reverse that with Muslims and bombings. Humans just love to blame the whole for the actions of a subset of the whole, regardless of their ability to control them, or their relationship with them.

Anyway, it isn't like business don't do separations like that just to sever themselves from the actions of their compartments...it's like bulkheads on a ship. Some accountability should slip up the chain regardless (though not laterally, sure).

FBI Confirms Open Investigation Into Gamergate

aevan Re:did you see that piece (552 comments)

Pretty much this. To be honest, even if someone were was living with and screw and getting supported by the person being reviewed, I wouldn't give a damn as long as was a fair review and it was disclosed. Like that Christian reviewer thing "A 8 for controls, a 7 for graphics, 8 for plot for a technical 8... and a -5 for sacrificing babies to Satan, for a weight score of 5.5"

Amusing how the journo sites suddenly were mostly 'all from promotion team' adverts when forced to disclose.

"Team America" Gets Post-Hack Yanking At Alamo Drafthouse, Too

aevan Re:America! (230 comments)

Unless of course, this is going to be a shitty movie, and they are counting on a combination of Streisand Effect and patriotism to drum up sales.

Apparent Islamic Terrorism Strikes Sydney

aevan Re:No true Scotsman (878 comments)

Maybe, but also was stated to 'get over it, put the rock down, God will deal with it, not you'. Not to take matters in your own hands. Did say to pack a sword in self-defence though, I think. One of the later parts when going out being preachy was on the to-do list.

FBI: Wiper Malware Has Korean Language Packs, Hard Coded Targets

aevan Re:Ha, NORTH Korea? (81 comments)

Not sure about SeeU, but I know a few years ago I got a DMCA from 'Original Creator' with regards to vocaloid videos.

They are part of Crypton Future Media though, the actual Vocaloid maker. Seems they have automated DMCA 'protect their customers from getting copied and denied their due profit'.

Congress Suggests Moat, Electronic Fence To Protect White House

aevan Virtual Fence? (213 comments)

I suppose it makes sense, with laws painting us all as virtually terrorists.

That said, I like Punji stake pits as an idea. Or high-tension trampolines that snap-release and launch plumetters back into the air. Hook it to a live web-stream.

How Alibaba Turned November 11 Into the World's Biggest Online Shopping Day

aevan Re:Good luck in Canada (115 comments)

Sundays? Even Saturday was a crapshot..opening at lunch for a few hours. And weekdays? Good luck if you get off work at 1700h, 'cuz they might as well rolled up the streets while they were at it...things were closed. Go find a 7-11 or something if you need groceries. Not that you had money because, you know, 'banking hours'.

Long-term Study Finds No Link Between Video Game Violence and Real Violence

aevan Re:most studies, obvious common sense. See Iran, N (250 comments)

Been to a dozen countries, and I'll agree that outlook and behaviour is different. Amusingly,most had common shows. More amusing, the one with the MOST violent shows at the time (Japan) was the least violent socially. Culture impacts children heavily, and while entertainment is part of culture, it's not the entirety of culture, and being cognizent that entertainment is simply entertainment, diminishes that impact.

Bounties vs. Extreme Internet Harassment

aevan Re:BULLSHIT.. Gamergate needs a real explanation (716 comments)

If you want fun, read the long Talk page on that wiki article. It's popcorn worthy the antics of the actors. Even Whales chimes in and gets told to back off by the vested interests in presenting a NNPOV while claiming it's a NPOV, while trying to get the other sides banned as wither single-purpose-accounts, zombies, sockpuppets or simply behaving poorly. If were ever an article to display the ugly politics behind the supposedly 'noble' wikipedia, this would be it.

Hungary's Plans For Internet Tax On Hold After Protests

aevan Re:0.62$ per gigabyte? Stone age (48 comments)

My parents hit 62 gig last month on theirs, and it's facebook, skype, youtube and online chess.

Personally I top 100G with online games, online videos, and some torrenting.

Hellfires, I'd top 1 Gig a month easy on dial-up back in the day. Gogo USENET binaries and IRC
