Snowden Documents: CSE Tracks Millions of Downloads Daily

lucm Re:ALL bigots are the same (103 comments)

Hell, maybe you'll look at reality and change your views and go out of that box of bigotry and hatred. Who knows.

"Bigotry" and "opinions that are different from yours" are not synonyms. And maybe you keep losing track of the actual conversation because you are too busy finding irrelevant wikipedia or fox news links, or maybe the voices in your head are just too loud, but one way or the other, the only hatred in this thread is your not so subtle antisemitic babbling.

lucm Re:They said they weren't doing it.. (103 comments)

And you just proved you're more interested in being the vigilante than the advocate of peace and tolerance, especially when your opponents don't want peace and tolerance.

I stopped reading after that sentence because people who say things like "you just proved" are the worst possible debaters. Also in my experience those people have a big butt but I guess we'll never know if that's your case.

Amazon Takes On Microsoft, Google With WorkMail For Businesses

lucm Re:Spam filtering, unlimited aliases, search, rule (62 comments)

I gave up on built-in spam filtering a long time ago. Instead I route email thru a cloud antispam provider. It's super cheap and very convenient.

Amazon Takes On Microsoft, Google With WorkMail For Businesses

lucm Re:When is it going to turn profit? (62 comments)

This is actually by design. Their model is not profit, it's growth and innovation. It's a new economy where the balance sheet is becoming less and less a key factor for large corporations, and for the most part shareholders are ok with it because investments are made in the short term and the skyrocketing share price is more attractive than actual equity or dividends.

I'm not saying I agree, just that this is not by mistake that they don't make a profit.

I'm not even religious, but the FUD and crap thrown at Muslims reminds me of shit Nazis threw around at Jews or KKK at non-whites. Fucking disgusting.

Again with the Ben Affleck syndrome. Put anything that has even the most indirect link to islam in a discussion, and suddenly phony liberals get their panties in a bunch and talk about how Muslims are the real victims of everything and everyone.

The bodies at the Charlie Hebdo massacre were not even cool when phonies like you were already going ballistic about those poor non-violent Muslims that idiots were inevitably going to put in the same basket as terrorists. Not a word about the dead people.

If you feel the need to be outraged, why don't you think of those women that are sold in the market in the Islamic State, or those 2-hour fake marriages just pronounced to let "freedom fighters" rape women legally? Why don't you defend people who are real victims?

I'll tell you why people like you never do it. Because it's not convenient. It's not convenient to mention that there are thousands of serial rapists who want to bring back the dark ages in the Middle East (as long as they can keep raping) and that nutjobs all over the world (the "lone wolves") join their cause because they see it as a way out of their pathetic lives. It's a lot more convenient to throw your bile at civilized people because those civilized people won't put a death warrant signed by god on your head and won't run towards you with a pipe bomb in their pocket.

You sir are a fucking coward always aiming for the lowest hanging fruit of self-righteous political correctness, and I hereby invite you to go fuck yourself. You are the least valuable side effect of life in a safe, democratic nation.

The name of that charter is misleading. The purpose of that document is not to protect citizens, it's to give to the federal government the opportunity to override any court decision made in one of the provinces under the pretense of protecting the citizens. It is a huge loophole that gives to federal politicians the power to overrule judges.

That charter is what allowed things like islamic courts to appear in Ontario, and was used to override a Quebec courts decision to forbid Sikh schoolboys from bringing a knife at school.

What about charging a single USB device from 8 adapters? If it would charge 8x faster maybe my Kindle would charge completely overnight...

WhatsApp vs. WhatsApp Plus Fight Gets Ugly For Users

lucm Re: was a warning too much to ask? (192 comments)

Stop and think for a moment before farting out such a childish response.

You managed to put "farting" and "childish" in the same sentence. That's impressive. Did you build up your dialectical skills by exchanging messages using your rip-off (themed) app?

lucm Re:Better Link (192 comments)

Did you read the testimonials from the Airbnb and Dropbox guys?

We're really excited about Presto. We're planning on using it to quickly gain insight about the different ways our users use Dropbox

It's like those book reviews on Amazon where people say: "I've only read the first two pages so far but I'm excited about this book". Very convincing.

Why don't you design one and get your project funded on kickstarter? You would get the exact mouse you want, plus money.

Let them release the source for their clients and servers ... then we'll see. Ditto for Facebook.

I would be curious so see Facebook's source code. I'm sure it's elegant and sophisticated.

Barrett Brown, Formerly of Anonymous, Sentenced To 63 Months

lucm Re: There is no anonymity (110 comments)

You are an unattractive girl, mid 20s, who has glowing stars on the ceiling of her bedroom and who goes to hot yoga class without realizing that yoga pants are not for everyone. You are lazy and significantly overestimate your intelligence. Your father is a fat guy who works in an unionized organization and prepares tax returns for $20 cash during tax season. You have a small pet, probably a semi-exotic bird, and there's a faint rancid smell in your bathroom that you can't explain. Your front teeth are ok but the side ones are yellow. You put the underwear that has no stain on the left side of your top drawer, and when you clean the lint from a dryer you tend to throw it behind the machine if no one is looking. You have vague notions of a foreign language, probably Spanish, but you always try to let other people think that you are fluent in that language. One time in middle school you did something wrong, like stealing booze, and when the theft was discovered you planted evidence to have someone else take the blame. When you masturbate, you think about the following: the young teenage girl next door (20% of the time), being raped by two old bums behind a dumpster (30%), doing a striptease for Steve Martin while he's drinking a can of lukewarm Diet Pepsi (50%).

That's who you truly are. Your name or address is just paperwork.

Dish Network Violated Do-Not-Call 57 Million Times

lucm Re:Suitable Penalties Need To Be Given (247 comments)

Nah. If you look at the numbers, the p/e ratio of this stock is more than 2x the p/e ratio of Apple. It would take an insanely huge fine to scare away investors, especially those institutional investors who own 95% of the company. This is not a corporation that will bend over for legislators, especially pencil-pushers like the FTC.

Also it makes no sense to adapt a fine to the market cap of a corporation. As an example, Google has 10x the market cap of Dish, but only 4x their annual revenue. Dish also has a profit that is 4x bigger than Amazon, with a market cap 5x lower. The market cap is meaningless.

Doxing Victim Zoe Quinn Launches Online "Anti-harassment Task Force"

lucm Down with haters (687 comments)

taunting her "haterz"

I'm getting fed up with the "haterz" thing. It's a self-serving and simplistic conversation stopper, like "homophobic" or "patriarchal".

I don't "hate" Justin Bieber, Zoe Quinn or Jar Jar Binks. I just consider that those persons have nothing of value to contribute and are not helping to improve the signal-to-noise ratio in their respective sphere of influence. I would have to care about them to qualify as a hater.

Doxing Victim Zoe Quinn Launches Online "Anti-harassment Task Force"

lucm wat. (687 comments)

I tried to read that page but this is like listening to teenage girls arguing about who saw that pair of jeans first at wal-mart the week before homecoming. The level of mental confusion and social ineptitude displayed in those messages is mind-blowing.

Doxing Victim Zoe Quinn Launches Online "Anti-harassment Task Force"

lucm Busted (687 comments)

I have a theory about the secret agenda of Slashdot editors. It's actually a clever endless loop of business:

1) Slashdot reader is angry (or bored) because of the editors, so he decides to start a blog to bitch about gamergate, feminazis and other hot issues

2) reader goes to the Deals page to buy the $49 Wordpress bundle (93% off!)

3) reader puts link to a Slashdot discussion on his responsive and mobile-ready blog

4) reader's reader clicks (or taps) on the link

5) goto 1

Flawless. It is basically a money printing scheme.
