ionymous makes me sad (287 comments)

to see how much this site has changed. So many commenters sound entitled or fraudsters or thieves.

Fugitive Child Sex Abuser Caught By Face-Recognition Technology

ionymous Re:This Juggler's Only Crime (232 comments)

Yes, but some of us think child abuse is so disturbing that even this word play is not funny.
I'm sure you wouldn't say that joke to the abused child's parents.
How about to some random parents?
Some parents you know?
Your own parents?
Your close friends?
Your spouse?
Yourself?

I draw the line at myself, and even still feel wrong thinking it.

We've got freedom of speech but that doesn't mean you have to say everything that comes to mind. Define a filter for yourself.

Blowing Up a Pointless Job Interview

ionymous stop whining and... (692 comments)

just answer the questions like you're talking to another human, because you are.
You're too elitist if you think someone's question is stupid. Not all people are geniuses, and most employees aren't trained in interviewing.
Plus the question might be weird on purpose to see how you react. Don't be an ass.

ionymous Re:Thou hast angered thy King (260 comments)

After some of these responses I was about to decide never to post on the internet again. Can people really not get that I'm joking? See... dead people can't commit crimes! Ugh.

Then I just saw "Score 5: Funny". (sigh of relief) Thank you. My faith is restored. sheesh!

China Says Serious Polluters Will Get the Death Penalty

ionymous Re:Thou hast angered thy King (260 comments)

Well, I can only speak for myself. If I were executed for a crime, I would definitely think twice before committing that crime again. It's just not worth it.

ionymous Re:How about no (203 comments)

It's not "extra" electricity, it's the amount of electricity you agreed to pay for by signing up for Comcast's services.
They are not forcing you to use their service.

Do Developers Need Free Perks To Thrive?

ionymous pay for what you use (524 comments)

My company took away the free soda. Work continued and it was not a big deal. Why would anyone expect for a company to pay for their groceries anyway? Technically, if the logistics were realistic, I'd have no problem paying for my toilet paper. Paying for what I use makes sense to me.

Microsoft Unveils Xbox One

ionymous Awesome! (782 comments)

It seems like all the comments here are skeptical or negative.

I've never owned an XBox, and I'm not a Microsoft fanboy, though I do own several Windows PC, but this sure sounds like an awesome piece of engineering.
Nice job Microsoft?
