The Inevitable Death of the Internet Troll

durrr Re:Automated hate? (570 comments)

No, the bot should be liable: we need to re-instate trials and executions against non-humans again.

The Inevitable Death of the Internet Troll

durrr Hypocrisy (570 comments)

Lets censor and police the internet not because of bomb and drugmaking tutorials and terrorism forums.
Lets do it because someone might insult females online.

Every single person that have spent any extended time online in an environment where you communicate anonymously with strangers have been insulted, harassed and so on. It happens because you eventually end up in a competitive situation(games or arguments).

But of course when xXxPonyWarrior2002xXx calls me a 'shit-eathing motherfucking fag-whore' and wishes me death from cancer and fire simultaneously it's friendly banter between two men. But when he calls GamurGrrl99 a slut it's suddenly a confirmation that all men are misgyonistic pigs and that we can't have such a thing as a free internet anymore because it's full of heartless trolls.

NPR: '80s Ads Are Responsible For the Lack of Women Coders

durrr Re:All the movies had women in business (780 comments)

Women are the reason there's no women coders. I'm getting really tired of females being allowed to externalize all their problems while males are not.

Then wait until the boys hit puberty.
Of course it would lose all value due to the overabundance so the investment will never pay off.

Flight Attendants Want Stricter Gadget Rules Reinstated

durrr Re:That's not the reason you're being ignored. (406 comments)

"The miraculous landing on a wheat field had only a single death among the 250 passengers on board. An anonymous passenger said some smug looking asshole that didn't brace had his skull cracked on the seat in front of him as the plane made a hard touchdown."

They never say anything about floating seats in the EU.
Maybe they assume all the corpses floating around will suffice?

Wind Power Is Cheaper Than Coal, Leaked Report Shows

durrr Re:Too bad... (610 comments)

"This project was carried out and authored by Ecofys. "
"Ecofys is a leading knowledge and innovation company in the field of renewable energy, energy efficiency and climate change."

How surprising that a report written by a renewable energy company found out that renewable energy is best energy.

Why the Trolls Will Always Win

durrr Re:More feminist bullshit (728 comments)

This is not a problem exclusive to women.
As a man you can also get your life disrupted by death threats, unordered pizzas/taxis/products and doxxing.

It's probably easier to get singled out for it as a women, but if you are subject to it as a man you'll get much less support to cope with it. This is reflected in the offline world too as a MUCH higher suicide rate for men compared to women. Trying to construct this as some purely misgyonistic issue is just reinforcing the gender bias of men as some disposable soldier caste and is likely to aggrevate misgyonistic tendencies overall in society.

If you insist that this is just about females then you're a proponent for gender privlege and not equality.

It's hard to admit that you could've been wrong isn't it?
Especially after you've been gloating over your high horse position and have insulted everyone that disagreed.

Past Measurements May Have Missed Massive Ocean Warming

durrr Re:please no (423 comments)

I have a model that reproduces past winning lottery numbers, for only a million USD: far less than what I predict you to win, you are allowed to use it forescast the future ones too.

Hindcasting is easy. Forecasting is hard. And the climate models fail miserably at the latter.

Energy Utilities Trying To Stifle Growth of Solar Power

durrr Re:So? (488 comments)

Investing in intermittent power sources further cuts into their profit and viability. They can't really run their solar panels at night to compensate for all the other ones dumping energy at day.

This is of course true for everoyne else too, which means off-peak energy will grow more expensive or run at loss eventually.

South Australia Hits 33% Renewal Energy Target 6 Years Early

durrr Re:Works particularly well in SA/Victoria (169 comments)

Large scale grid storage doesn't exist in a cheap and efficient manner. That's one of the core problems with wind and solar. It's great for shaving off peak demand but after a certain point it will be investments into useless overcapacity(it's also a great way to make renewables competitive with grid prices though as grid inefficiency costs are offloaded to end users)

Friendly Reminder: Do Not Place Your iPhone In a Microwave

At least the new iPhone is waterproof to 2 meters for 30 minutes so the last hoax where people ruined it by putting it under the tap doesn't work anymore.

durrr Re:Largest Climate march in history (200 comments)

Like and share" and get big enviro pick it up and you'll have it disseminated globally soon enough, with several hundreds or thousands of environmentally minded people jetting in form all over the place to participate in your political-religious activist parade.
