Any hacker group that relies on the same malware code on their hacking, for 6 year straight, deserves no respect

Any victim that keeps getting hacked by the same malware code for 6 years straight, deserves no sympathy.

Jedi-ism Becomes a Serious Religion

ayesnymous Re:Wonder what brand is best now... Intel? (101 comments)

This gets me wondering what brand of SSDs is best these days. I've read a lot of good about Intel brand drives, but wonder what is decent these days.

I've heard good things about the Crucial MX100 drives.

Despite Patent Settlement, Apple Pulls Bose Merchandise From Its Stores

ayesnymous Re:Bose is overpriced crap and always has been (328 comments)

It's funny. I used to read audiophile forums and no one would ever agree on anything, except for one thing. They always agreed that Bose sold crap products and made up for it with a great marketing department.

Could Maroney Be Prosecuted For Her Own Hacked Pictures?

ayesnymous Re:Story title needs a warning! (274 comments)

Nudity isn't pornography so I wouldn't sweat it. It's pretty absurd though that the article talks about teenage girls being charged with a felony for taking pictures of themselves. What a world we live in.

According to the summary, non-nudity might even be pornography, since it says some girls who took photos of themselves in bras were threatened criminal charges.

eBay To Spin Off PayPal

ayesnymous Since when do eBay and Paypal compete? (76 comments)

"investors are worried that eBay and PayPal together are too big to compete effectively." Ebay and Paypal don't compete. Ebay doesn't have any payment services (BillMeLater is also owned by Paypal). Paypal doesn't let people post items for sale.

FBI Chief: Apple, Google Phone Encryption Perilous

ayesnymous Re:Think of the children (354 comments)

Dear Retard,

The purpose of mod points is to affect the visibility of certain posts for the benefit of Slashdot readership. Whether they are anonymous or not is irrelevant to that stated goal. Mod points are NOT intended to reward or punish user IDs, except for ass masters like you.


Whether a post is anonymous *is* relevant to its visibility. Anonymous posts start with a score of 0, and the default ./ visibility filter is set to 1.
