New Nicotine Vaccine May Succeed Where Others Have Failed

Jeff Flanagan Re:Why would you want this? (178 comments)

>You will always be an addict. I quit smoking over 3 years ago, and I'm still addicted.

No you won't. It just seems that way because it's only been 3 years. I broke my 1-2 pack a day addiction about 15 years ago, and have been at the point where I can have one or two without getting out of control for about a decade. I don't anymore, since smoking is disgusting and makes you reek.

The Untold Story of the Invention of the Game Cartridge

Jeff Flanagan Re:Obligatory Joke (60 comments)

Here are some more examples of software distributed on flexible records.

http://blog.modernmechanix.com...

It was a pretty good idea, considering that software was loaded from audio cassettes back in the day, and unlike a cassette, a flexible record can easily be distributed in an unpackaged magazine.

Jeff Flanagan Re:Except of course the story was FALSE (418 comments)

A racist group. Don't try to deflect. Normal people refused to have anything to do with the event.

Blogger Who Revealed GOP Leader's KKK Ties Had Home Internet Lines Cut

Jeff Flanagan Re:Steve Scalise did NOT speak to KKK group (418 comments)

His "facts" are wingnut deflection. Speaking to a smaller group of racists did not make what he did any better. Only deranged wingnuts who are caught in the distant past believe that democrats control the KKK. The monsters moved to the Republican party during the civil rights movement, which victims of right-wing media actually believe never happened. Republicans are not reality-based people. It's all about dogma, and fake-news with them.

Slashdot is pretty derpy these days, but not Breitbart-derpy, so no one is going to buy your absurd propaganda.

Blogger Who Revealed GOP Leader's KKK Ties Had Home Internet Lines Cut

Jeff Flanagan Re:nc (418 comments)

They also have a "Grand Dragon." They have some really lofty titles for a bunch of hate-fueled morons. David Duke is considered to be one of the smart ones, so you know the average IQ is below room temperature.

Blogger Who Revealed GOP Leader's KKK Ties Had Home Internet Lines Cut

Jeff Flanagan Re:Christianity is just as bad as Islam (418 comments)

No, by educating superstitious people, and marginalizing would-be theocrats like the Republican clown-show.

People tend to realize that the supernatural is imaginary if we allow them a decent education. Unfortunately a huge regressive subculture wants us to remain ignorant and reactionary, so we make stupid comments like "Just like USSR, China and North Korea does, by jailing people for having a terrorist handbook called ... "the bible"" .

Blogger Who Revealed GOP Leader's KKK Ties Had Home Internet Lines Cut

Jeff Flanagan Re:This is Slashdot, not Politico (418 comments)

Because it paints Klan members in a bad light, and racism has become far too mainstream in the Republican party. Too many Slashdot users are part of the ignorant, reactionary, wingnut subculture, and just can't cope with the fact that America is moving away from our racist, homophobic, just plain stupid past.

User Plea Means EISA Support Not Removed From Linux

Jeff Flanagan Re:Crusty Hardware (188 comments)

Token Ring was fun. You could convince noobs that they'd let the token out of an open connection, and ruined the network.

Facebook Will Let You Flag Content As 'False'

Jeff Flanagan The far-right-wing propagandists hate this (224 comments)

If people that lie for a living are upset about their lies being flagged, that suggests that this is a good idea.

NASA, NOAA: 2014 Was the Warmest Year In the Modern Record

Jeff Flanagan Re:call me skeptical (360 comments)

You seem to have internalized wingnut propaganda. There's no equivalent between scientists and propaganda from polluters, but the right-wing sociopaths want you to believe that all beliefs are equal, because that would make your stupid beliefs valuable instead of foolish and absurd.

NASA, NOAA: 2014 Was the Warmest Year In the Modern Record

Jeff Flanagan Re:call me skeptical (360 comments)

Not data that contradicts his beliefs, I don't think. I think he's referring to crank denier sites.

When people go crazy, they often think their beliefs are data, but really they're just living in a fantasy world.

Right wing sociopaths have put a lot of effort into creating a false narrative, and so many former-conservatives have been turned into frothing-at-the-mouth wingnuts from internalizing far-right-wing propaganda from hate-radio, wingnut blogs, and Fox "News".

Steam For Linux Bug Wipes Out All of a User's Files

Jeff Flanagan Re:Power Tools for Powered Destruction (329 comments)

Clearly doing this is a good idea, rather than just paranoia, but you shouldn't have to do it. It's insane that Valve is so incompetent with Linux that they'd code something like this. I've never seen a system-wiping bug like this in Windows, where it can happen much more easily.

Steam For Linux Bug Wipes Out All of a User's Files

Jeff Flanagan Re:m -rf "$STEAMROOT/"* ??? (329 comments)

It seems like Valve does not take Linux support seriously. Windows is inherently less secure than Linux, but I expect that they dedicate enough resources to their Windows version that something like this would never happen.
