Moot Retires From 4chan

loufoque Re:Probably sold out to CIA a long ago (184 comments)

4chan moves so fast that it would require a disproportionately large team to track what happens on it.
There is also a lot of specific vocabulary and way of communicating on 4chan to be able to understand what's going on, but I suppose that after enough time reading everything you'd grasp it.

Moot Retires From 4chan

loufoque Re:The least welcome news (184 comments)

I myself find 4chan to be one of the few communities where people are not afraid of their tastes and fetishes; it's refreshing to visit something where people have opinions other than the society-sanctioned politically correct ones.

Sure, there is racism, probably some hate speech too, unusual graphic content, and plenty of offensive things, some of which might be illegal. But it's all ephemeral as boards quickly move around to new topics.

Either you're very good at explaining, or those people are content with a very superficial understanding.

There's a Problem In the Silk Road Trial: the Jury Doesn't Get the Internet

loufoque Re:Jurors (303 comments)

I'm a software engineer with significant systems programming experience and I don't really know how Tor works either.
I know enough to know that it's technology based on a specific technique (onion routing), but I never studied this technique enough to really understand how to implement it.

UK Computing Teachers Concerned That Pupils Know More Than Them

loufoque I knew more than my teacher at university level (388 comments)

I still knew more than my teachers even at the postgraduate university level (in certain areas).
That's just a given in a field that is also a passion for the younger generations.

Several European Countries Lay Groundwork For Heavier Internet Censorhip

loufoque Disregards the people completely (319 comments)

Yesterday, in France, more than 3 millions people gathered in Paris, and in smaller cities hundreds of thousands of people gathered as well.
This is something that hasn't happened since the liberation in 1945.

Everyone is gathering to proclaim freedom of speech.
And what's the answer of the government? We're going to restrict freedom of speech...

In France, it is even illegal to contest justice decisions that were classified as crimes against humanity.
This was implemented to help the Jews maintain their honor.

If the Programmer Won't Go To Silicon Valley, Should SV Go To the Programmer?

loufoque Re:No. Reciprocal loyalty is dead. (294 comments)

I get offers on a weekly basis, if not more, but finding a well-paid job in a domain you're interested in, close to your home, and that still leaves you enough free time to spend with your family is not that easy.

I doubt you can really find a good job within a week.
Finding a really good job takes months at best.

2015 Means EU Tax Increase On Cloud Storage, E-books and Smartphone Applications

loufoque Re:should five per cent appear to small (164 comments)

Bear in mind that only part of the social benefit taxes appear on your payslip. In France, the employer contributes 20% of his salary, while the employer also gives 15 to 40% the pay to the social institutions.
Social benefit taxes double the cost of work, which is why salaries are significantly lower in Europe.
