The Inevitable Death of the Internet Troll

biek Re: Semantics (571 comments)

It's not ignoring the point at all. It's one thing to have your eyes drawn downward for a moment, it's quite another to keep staring after being asked to stop. She shouldn't have to wear a turtleneck to keep your gaze focused where it should be.

Unintended Consequences: How NSA Revelations May Lead To Even More Surveillance

biek Re:Maybe Usless (207 comments)

The isolated psycopath or sociopath may be the ultimate threat to national security.

They're not, though. While capable of doing horrible things they are a local threat at best. Nothing they do will have national effects beyond "This thing happened so I, a politician, will sign this legislation that saves my face"

NSA Head Asks How To Spy Without Collecting Metadata

biek Re:How about warrants with probable cause? (509 comments)

The NSA's job is to spy on the rest of the world, but leave the US citizens alone. This guy seems unable to accept that one little limit in their charter.

I was under the impression they actually were playing by these rules, but exploiting the loophole of "Hey, THOSE countries are the ones doing the collection of data on US citizens. It just so happened we also had interesting information on their population so we decided to trade."

I don't think the the NSA has enough disk space (or interest) to collect the porn of the average American.

No, just the metadata about every session.

Wrong Fuel Chokes Presidential Limo

biek Re:Um... (612 comments)

Okay, you get funny points, but in case anyone takes you seriously, automatic transmissions pretty much became the norm in the U.S. in the 1950s and from your list only eating and sleeping were available in the car.

Don't forget drinking!
