Illinois Students Suspected of Cyberbullying Must Provide Social Media Passwords

damicatz Re:This will work great.. (323 comments)

They will simply reinterpret the law to allow them to do whatever they do. The Supreme Court has being doing that for over 200 years. That is the fatal flaw of the Constitution; the people it is supposed to limit are those who are in charge of interpreting those limits.

Steam Broadcasting Now Open To Everyone

damicatz Pointless (93 comments)

It isn't open to everyone. It doesn't support any web browsers other than Chrome and Windows 8Internet Explorer. They won't be competing with Twitch anytime soon with those restrictions.

Gunmen Kill 12, Wound 7 At French Magazine HQ

damicatz Re:islam (1350 comments)

The crusades happened hundreds of years ago. It is no longer relevant today. Islamist violence, on the other hand, has been going on since the founding of that religion and continues to this day. More people are beaten, maimed, mutilated, raped, and murdered in the name of allah every single day than all other religions combined.

Manga Images Depicting Children Lead to Conviction in UK

damicatz Re: Moral Imperialism (475 comments)

The bill of rights is a myth. The very people who they are supposed to limit are the ones in charge of interpreting said limits. As soon as the supreme court gave itself the power of judicial review (despite no such power existing in the constitution), it was over. The US constitution was an interesting experiment, but it failed.

damicatz Moral Imperialism (475 comments)

Similarity to child pornography? Is there really someone so stupid that they cannot tell the difference between a cartoon drawing and a real child?

2015 Corvette Valet Mode Recorder Illegal In Some States

damicatz Re:If I own the car (269 comments)

It depends on the contract I enter with the hotel. If I book a hotel room without a contractual guarantee of privacy, then I have no expectation of privacy because it is not my property. If I book with a contractual guarantee of privacy and they violate that, then they have committed fraud by taking my money and not fulfilling their end of the contract.

damicatz If I own the car (269 comments)

I'll record whomever I want while they are inside it. There is no natural law obligation to get consent from someone who is driving *my* car.

Torvalds: No Opinion On Systemd

damicatz This is why I no longer use Linux (385 comments)

I switched to BSD a while back and I couldn't be happier. All three are written by people who actually know how to program as opposed to amateur primadonnas like Lennart Poettering.

Combating Recent, Ugly Incidents of Misogyny In Gamer Culture

damicatz Liberal Thought-Police (1134 comments)

I'm getting tired of these indie hipsters and their SJW bullshit infiltrating the video game world. Anita Sarkeesian is not a video gamer. Zoe Quinn is not a game designer (no, a point-and-click webpage is not a damn video game). There is no "rampant" misogyny (which is defined as dislike for, or contempt for, women). There however, is rampant misandry coming from outsiders.

I'm also getting tired of video game websites and so called "journalists" who are more interested in spouting off moon-battery then actually reviewing games (e.g. Rock Paper Gloria Steinem with resident moonbat John Walker, Kotaku with resident moonbat Patricia Hernandez (http://kotaku.com/a-game-that-wants-to-teach-women-how-to-masturbate-511971045)).

The Next Unreal Tournament: Totally Free, Developed By Public

damicatz UWindows (122 comments)

I hope they bring back UWindows. That, IMHO, was the pinnacle of interfaces for games and the consolized interfaces of the later versions are crap by comparison.

IRS Can Now Seize Your Tax Refund To Pay a Relative's Debt

damicatz Taxation (632 comments)

I always make sure I never have a refund and that I "owe" taxes because the thieves that run the federal government simply cannot be trusted. All it takes is some pencil-pushing bureaucrat to decide that you were "overpaid" and they can steal your refund without so much as a trial, a hearing, or a chance to defend yourself.

damicatz Transcription (80 comments)

Why do they need real time transcription screens? Courts have operated for thousands of years without such devices just fine. They can always view the transcription later.

Tesla's Fight With Car Dealers Could Help Decide the Next Presidential Election

damicatz There is no irony (282 comments)

To anyone who actually understands how the Republican party operates, there is no irony because they are little more than two-faced hypocrites. They preach limited government but then try to regulate the bedroom, who can get abortions, who can get married and birth control. They preach freedom but use eminent domain to steal people's property (the Keystone Pipeline they are so fond of is built on stolen land) and funnel trillions of dollars into the military industrial complex so that more people can be bombed. They preach lower taxes but then raise taxes on everyone except the super-rich.

They (along with the Democrat party, which is the same shit but different rhetoric) are little more than corporate prostitutes who are available to the highest bidder. The stealerships in this case have more money combined than Tesla. So no, there is no irony because I expected nothing less from the Republican party than cronyist statism.

$30K Worth of Multimeters Must Be Destroyed Because They're Yellow

damicatz Thugs (653 comments)

The Department of Homeland Security is nothing but a bunch of thugs. Having dealt with them before on customs, this is basically some government employee flexing their muscles because they like the power and have nothing better to do. The appropriate amount of boot-licking and obsequiousness (and tribute payment) is required in order to get it through.

Mozilla Is Investigating Why Dell Is Charging To Install Firefox

damicatz Firefox (306 comments)

If the UK is anything like the US, there is no case for trademark infringement merely because someone is selling a service and refers to the product they service. Nominative use of a trademark is generally considered fair use (e.g. it is generally legal for someone who is selling parts for Ford cards to say we sell Ford parts in their advertisements even if they aren't officially affiliated with Ford) provided you don't give the impression that you are officially sanctioned or affiliated with whoever owns the trademark.
