Peppers Seem To Protect Against Parkinson's

dontgetshocked Re:Paging Mr. Fox (161 comments)

Your right, it is in very bad taste. You should be ashamed of yourself and why Slashdot awards you points is beyond me. Having a Neurological disease myself, it is very offensive. You are the kind of person who laughs at others misfortunes. Sad!

Possible Cure For MS Turns Common Skin Cells Into Working Brain Cells

dontgetshocked Multiple Sclerosis (87 comments)

Multiple Sclerosis Damage Washed Away By Stream of Young Blood

dontgetshocked Real MS Person (216 comments)

I have MS and of course I would love to see this cured but this procedure is not acceptable.Not all people go along with this stem cell thing and I am one of them.For those people who do,that is their choice.I also am an ordained minister and on the point of living forever,this is simply not possible since man has inherited sin and the wages of sin is death.Not meant to start a debate but the above statement is simply a fact and above that statement is my opinion.

Linux Security Proactive or Reactive

dontgetshocked dontgetshocked writes  |  more than 3 years ago

dontgetshocked (1073678) writes "It is obvious to me that with the increasing popularity of Linux,where do we stand on security? Are we ready now or will we wait until it is an issue to address the problem? By security in this instance I mean virus/malware protection and yes I am aware of the proof of concept theory."
