AdNauseam Browser Extension Quietly Clicks On Blocked Ads

allo Re:Isn't that click fraud? (285 comments)

It does not matter for you as user, as you do not have a contract with the site owner or advertiser. The site owner is not allowed to do so on his ads, you are free to do whatever you like.

Ask Slashdot: Making a 'Wife Friendly' Gaming PC?

allo Re:And... (720 comments)

addendum: You are making it a WOMEN problem. I did not even mention gender. Wouldn't you have the same problem with two men? Think about it ... and stop thinking in stereotypes.

Ask Slashdot: Making a 'Wife Friendly' Gaming PC?

allo Re:And... (720 comments)

you sound a bit sexist. This IS a social problem. You make it a women problem. That's not okay.

"Its too ugly and noisy" is not a technical problem at first, but a social one "i think its too ugly and noisy in my opinion". Now you can accept this (okay, i think it too but i need the power), doubt it (hey, its not that loud) or acknowledge the other opinion (okay, its too loud for you).
Now start thinking about strategies to solve this (still solving the social problem first):
- avoid the problem by changing location or times
- buy another device
- mod the current device
- use long cables, put it in some other room
- talk about it and agree on some compromise
- ...

Now you decided to solve it with one of the technical solutions, you can start discussing if you for example need to buy a silent one and what's the budget. But first you need to decide the social problem, which may result in "we do not have to solve some tech issue, because we solved the main problem (one person disliking the pc of the other person) in some other way".

Ask Slashdot: Making a 'Wife Friendly' Gaming PC?

allo Re:And... (720 comments)

Because that IS the problem. OP is trying to solve a social problem with technology. If his PC is just a normal gaming pc, the whole problem is more like "i do not really like it, don't do it". A solution would be social, like using another room for the pc, having agreements about the gaming times, etc.

Just put it in a room, where you have some quiet time for yourself and your gaming. you are not disturbed, your wife is not disturbed. win-win.

Uber's Android App Caught Reporting Data Back Without Permission

allo Re:Why is Android allowing Uber to access the info (234 comments)

So, they did strip the security?
Just a little reminder: a program on your linux system can read everything the user can read. Android apps need to ask for permissions (of course, they ask for a lot, but they still need to ask).

The problem is on the other hand, that most apps are spyware, as we called it when people still used PCs. And nobody cares anymore. On the PC we did not install programs, which did more than they should. on the mobile phone it's just normal.

How To End Online Harassment

allo Re:Additional... both sides are showing bad behavi (834 comments)

Recently i read an article with some linked tweets, which mentioned death threads, while the tweets read like "go die". I only though, how long have they been on the internet? Stuff like go die, STFU, fuck yourself are just slang.

How To End Online Harassment

allo Re:Additional... both sides are showing bad behavi (834 comments)

Death threats are not okay

Most of these feminists (you need to distinguish) reinterpret personal critic or criticising their point of view as prejudices against all women instead.

How To End Online Harassment

allo Re:Additional... both sides are showing bad behavi (834 comments)

both are just not constructive.

The death threats are just plump and they are anonymous cowards.
The other side actually believes their stuff, but does not use death threat but only arrogant hate speech looking down to the people who are criticising them, saying "the critic not relevant, its just a misogynist, it's not possible (s)he's* attacking the argument, (s)he's or me as asshole person, but (s)he must be attacking the feminist movement"

* sorry for gendering, but i did not want to silently accept the "all critics are straight white men" statement in my own argumentation.

How To End Online Harassment

allo Maybe a really good idea (834 comments)

Someone posting a threat wants to threaten you and is not just doing it. So filter it, you do not even see it, the person does not get any feedback if the message arrived (do not send negative feedback, they can try to evade the filter than) and must assume they are filtered. So they either need to publicize the threat in their own media (being easily traced, standing publicly with their reputation behind it) or just stop it. Or they can escalate it to the reality, which is something well known by police, which can act without thinking about "is this the new cyber thingy". Most people would just be stopped and with me not even noticing it i would have the people of mind.

So? You are born with a religion? Or maybe its more like being indoctrinated* by people with the religion since you're a child?
