logical_failure Re:Timing (7 comments)

The biggest account farming, obsessive compulsive, sock puppetting troll here is damn_registrars Steven. He's behind it all. He also knows about the MRI Cannon, as he worked on it. Email him at damn.registrars@gmail.com

Post his response, if he sends one, and I'll help you deconstruct it if he starts lying. He'll probably deny it all.

logical_failure Re:odd (7 comments)

Yes, the slashdot user who uses the nick damn_registrars is an obsessive compulsive troll, who uses AC postings and sock puppet accounts to further his means.

This account is a sock puppet as well, though I don't really log in as red4man these days.

I point out damn_registrars sock puppet accounts because 1. he won't admit it 2. he's an asshole to people.

I'm a troll, I'll admit that... but my shenanigans are harmless. His shenanigans are cruel and sadistic, and shouldn't even be called shenanigans.

Lately, damn_registrars has been posting replies to *every* single one of my posts again, trying to discredit me by making the claim that this account is one of his.

So... I set a trap. A while ago I got him and APK to feud, and the beautiful thing is... while they were engaged in a several day flame war - everyone else was left the hell alone. It was beautiful.

So, I'm trying again. See if I can get Stevie and DR to play.

Yes. I am damn_registrars, and you can email me at damn.registrars@gmail.com .

In fact, while I'm confessing... Steven, you're absolutely right. You're right about the mummy babies, you're right about the debt, you're right about the surveillance seagulls, you're right about the gang stalking. In fact, I, damn_registrars, can prove it all and have all the evidence you need to finally get this resolved to skullduggery.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE contact me at damn.registrars@gmail.com as soon as you can. Let's wrap this up, Steven.

HATIN U 4 UR FREEDUMZ!

logical_failure Re:Civil Disobedience... (8 comments)

No, the government trying to step in and tell me what I can and can't eat and can and can't feed my kids is pretty important.

I'm all for breast feeding. It's what's best for the child, formula isn't even close.

But I don't want some nanny-state jackass like Bloomberg stopping anyone from giving a kid a bottle of formula.

Besides:

+ Not every woman produces enough milk, and some HAVE to supplement with formula
+ Some women have had mastectomies and CAN'T breast feed

So, yeah, telling a nanny state to fuck off is high on my list of priorities.

damn_registrars steps in it again...

logical_failure logical_failure writes  |  about 2 years ago

http://slashdot.org/comments.pl?sid=3026535&cid=40895083

Once again damn_registrars starts following me around with the same tired act claiming that this account is one of his sock puppets. To teach him the error of his ways, I posted a reply, that Stevie will read, and will likely do something about.

Enjoy your fun with the paranoid, psychotic pretend homeless guy. He should be even more fun for you then when I got APK to troll your dumb ass. Me? I'm going to go get some popcorn and watch this. This should be as funny to me as the APK / damn_registrars sissy fight was.

Diablo III sucks

logical_failure logical_failure writes  |  more than 2 years ago I know, you're probably thinking "Gee, Red, that's an uncreative troll..." - but hear me out, and learn that instead of trolling I'm venting some deep disappointment.

Never mind the fact that after picking the game up yesterday morning, the Battle.net servers were down for several hours - while (in my not so humble opinion) it's completely stupid to require an internet connection for a single player game, I get it - they want to stop piracy - but seriously - launch day was a disaster, and Blizzard should be ashamed of themselves.

The game itself, graphically, looks like Warcraft 3 with a slightly higher polygon count. Warcraft 3 was released in June, 2002. So yes, 10 years later and the graphics are marginally improved.

However, I'm an old school gamer - there comes a point where graphics are "good enough" and that's honestly where the graphics in Diablo 3 are - they're good enough.

The art direction, on the other hand, is pathetic.

Think back of the days when you first played Diablo, and entered the Tristram Cathedral the first time. Or, for those of you who have barely hit puberty, Diablo 2 and the Rogue's Monastery - and remember (or go play them to remind yourself) how dark and dank the dungeons were?

In Diablo 3, they look like a cheesy haunted house. The lighting effects look like they propped up from Halloween decorations, bought enough black lights to discover all the hidden semen stains, and invited their goth / emo friends and hipster douchbags over for an ironic rave party.

It's not the slightest bit creepy. Hell, Kindergarten age kids see this and say "Wow, that looks lame. I've seen episodes of Max and Ruby scarier than this shit."

And the storyline thus far.... yawn. It's essentially a retelling of the first game so far, after a (spoiler) fallen star hits Tristram Cathedral and wakes the dead. Oh, I get to fight the Butcher again? King Leoric again?

In Act 2, do I get to fight Belial in Tal Rasha's tomb again? Can I please endure something as annoying as the Flayer Jungle again with all those little bastards and their stupid little blowguns?

If so, why didn't I just fire up Diablo and Diablo 2 and play through them again? At least those games won't quit on me if Battle.Net goes down.

What an utter, complete letdown this game is. It could have, and should have, been so much more.

The Death of Liberalism

logical_failure logical_failure writes  |  more than 2 years ago BRILLIANTLY EPIC WIN

Money Shot:

In other words, these insubstantial explanations for the evanescent era of liberal hegemony after November 2008 seem to have been built to assuage rather than persuade. For those who write and read these arguments, only malign or random forces outside liberalism can account for a liberal epoch that ends a few weeks after it begins. It's not that liberals would rather be lucky than good, exactly. Rather, believing liberalism inherently good, they are left with bad luck, principally in the form of inadequate champions and egregious adversaries, as the only possible explanation for its setbacks. There's no need, in other words, to entertain the possibility that liberalism itself has defects that vitiate its political appeal and governmental efficacy.

Look, pal, traffic is down 75%, the site is dying - and remarkably, the last several releases made to the back end code has made the site progressively WORSE, not better.

Maybe you're not cut out for this.

So, we're going to allow you to save face and resign. If you don't, we'll fire you. Clearly someone else needs to run the site and hopefully inject some quality and stability into the code base.

Logical Failure on the Front Page

logical_failure logical_failure writes  |  more than 2 years ago Link

I am not interested in a religious discussion, but the comment about a high mutation rate is a logical failure.

There are 23 chromosome pairs in the human genome. If Adam's pairings were entirely dominant (DD) and Eve's were recessive (dd), then there is enough genetic diversity for the current human diversity.

But since Eve was created from Adam's rib, there is another scenario where the genetic math works out:

Every gene had a dominant and recessive pair (Dd). Since their kids were intermarrying, the current scrambling of traits would have occurred in a few short generations, since the Dd + Dd can split and yield all 3 possible patterns - DD, Dd, dd. Given enough children, and if Adam and Eve lived (and were fertile) hundreds of years, then the modern genetic diversity is a mathematical certainty, and a mutation rate is not necessary.

But more likely is that Noah's family had enough genetic diversity to create the current diverse world we live in, as everyone else would have been smited by the flood...

So their argument, at least on that particular point, is a logical failure.

In other news, I wish I was as awesome of an ombudsman as this guy.

I, too, apologize for nothing.
