FAA Pressures Coldwell, Other Realtors To Stop Using Drone Footage

glrotate Enough with "drones." R/C planes and copters. (199 comments)

I agree with the FAA. Given the current state of cheap R/C copters with zip-tied Herocams, I don't think the operators should be given carte blanche to do as they please. The FAA needs to start rule-making process that involves all interested parties. But, until such rules are promulgated, I think prohibiting commercial operation is a sensible temporary position. Congress has the ultimate power here, but generally, the less they're involved - the better.

Snowden Queries Putin On Live TV Regarding Russian Internet Surveillance

glrotate Re:Useful Idiot (396 comments)

I asked my senator if he had ever called her about his concerns. She said "no."

I''m going to go out on a limb and say that he never called Ron/Rand Paul, or any other congressman that one would assume would be receptive to the sort of grievances Snowden supposedly has.

Google 'censors its website so anti-Islam searches

glrotate glrotate writes  |  more than 4 years ago

glrotate (300695) writes "The London Daily Mail is reporting that Google is censoring its search to remove "anti-islam" results. For example, if you type in 'Christianity is' in the search bar a whole range of options flash up including controversial suggestions such as 'Christianity is fake' and 'Christianity is a cult'. Such results don't come up for Islam."
