Is Setting Up an Offshore IT Help Desk Ethical?

cryophan castrate and hang outsourcing traitors (826 comments)

a public castration, public hanging and left to rot. That is the cure for those who facilitate outsourcing. ESPECIALLY for politicians who facilitate outsourcing. Until we do this, we will continue to bleed jobs. This is war, and those who facilitate outsourcing are traitors and therefore should be publicly castrated, publicly hung, and their corpses left on the rope to rot

Cryogenic afterlife isn't all it's cracked up to b

cryophan cryopreservation is not a funeral (2 comments)

it is more like an medical operation. so therefore the patient is not treated as a dead body. also, it looks like the author is just trying to make some money off ted wiliams. So he has no credibility.

Why Our "Amazing" Science Fiction Future Fizzled

cryophan political change is stopped via constitution (499 comments)

No, it is not that we WANTED change only by technology, it is that our Federal Constitution was designed by the rich aristocrats to STIFLE political change and to DISEMPOWER the voters. Americans have no option to change america politically because our Founding Fiends illegally installed a federal constitution that would thwart political change. To quote James Madison, "the father of the constitution, the constitution would not allow the voters to "unite and discover their common interest." Madison et al did this by creating a governmental structure that would increase the number of factions in the political districts by enlarging the political districts.

Yet another political post unfairly rated as "troll"

cryophan cryophan writes  |  more than 10 years ago This excellent and insighful post was rated unfairly as "troll". It was attached to this thread:

Electric Armor Tested For Light Armored Vehicles"

I think it is OUTRAGEOUS that valid and thoughtful posts such as this one (copied and pasted in full below) are modded as troll. Unbelievable! Something is wrong with the slashdot moderation system when this post get the same fucking rating as a GNAA post or a "BSD is dead" post. WTF is going on!?

We need to do something about this, people. Political censorship like this on the world's largest tech forum cannot be tolerated.

Here is the post itself:

interesting concept by - on Saturday June 12, @04:50PM (#9408491) I wonder if there are any non military useages of the idea. Perhaps in a storm shelter? Not sure. Anyway, here is my translation from a couple of paragraphs in the story,as if the story was written from some poor peasants point of view, as opposed to joe stockbroker sipping latte and reading the latest mil industrial complex conglomerate quotes at his local "axis of profits, nothing personal it's just business" coffee house "With the easy availability of RPG-7 rocket launchers-thank god we have at least something to defend our village with- "it only takes one individual on, say, a rooftop in a village to cause major damage or destroy passing armoured vehicles", he said.-Man, those tanks and soldiers from BigNation.Com, Inc. suck the big one. They come in here, invade, kill the people, every one of us is called a terrorist, they drive their tanks over our crops causing famine, smash our huts down, shoot all the men they can find, rape our wives and daughters then sit around and torture the remnants for sport. This is dismal. Glad I scraped up enough dough to get me an RPG. It's not much but it might stop them. Why don't they stay in their own country anyway? Oh ya, I forgot, we have oil/tin/gold/diamonds/whatever, and they want it, and they say our current dictator is worse than their dictator, so that makes us all terrorists. Silly me, how could I forget.... "But the use of electric armour, which will protect against all shaped-charge warheads including artillery and tank shells, would reduce the threat to zero."--Oh crap! Now, we have nothing to stop those invaders with! I guess we lose, might as well get out the black boot polish and rags and beg for some pennies from the nice soldier guys, when they get done with our wives and daughters that is. In the mean time I'll get back to whittling a wooden leg for one of my kids who was unfortunately a "collateral damage" statistic. I hope the new dictator the soldiers appoint to be our ruler will be better than the last one they appointed 10 years ago. Original Discussion: Electric Armor Tested For Light Armored Vehicles Rating: Troll.

Pro-Free Trade, Pro-Outsourcing ModBombing Squads on /.

cryophan cryophan writes  |  more than 10 years ago Those of you who have been worried about outsourcing and other unsavory aspects of free trade may have noticed that moderators on Slashdot are overwhelmingly in favor of free trade and outsourcing. If you have posted anti-free trade comments or posted against outsourcing, you yourself may have even been modded dowm for speaking your opinion. Thus, Slashdot is becoming a forum for the propagation of pro-outsourcing, pro-globalization propaganda. If you want to do something about it, we need to act together. One possible way to counteract the pro-outsourcing moderator goon squads on slashdot, is to join in force to counter-moderate. By counter-moderating, we may be able to balance out the pro-outsourcing, pro-globalization propaganda. I encourage you to post your comments here in order to organize anti-outsourcing, anti-globalization activity here on Slashdot. Thank you.
