Comcast Converting 50,000 Houston Home Routers Into Public WiFi Hotspots

nigelo Re:Converting Turning? (474 comments)

I expect to get topic subject-lines that incorrectly state 'Public WiFi Hotspots' when the article is clearly about 'Comcast Subscriber-only WiFi Hotspots'.

I am surprised that the topic subject line was updated so quickly, frankly, when I pointed it out.

Too bad I didn't mention the other error...

Three big "ifs" there: if you get the speed you are paying for, if done correctly, (if) you have multiple(?) ways to opt out.

White House Pressures Legislators Into Gutting USA FREEDOM Act

nigelo Re:House != White House (284 comments)

Actually, isn't it just the title that is getting it wrong?

" This is quite disappointing given the consensus by the public, Congress, the President, and two independent review groups that ending bulk collection is necessary."

Call Yourself a Hacker, Lose Your 4th Amendment Rights

nigelo Re:Stallman would have something to say about this (488 comments)

'When referred to as "scare quotes", the quotation marks are suggested to imply skepticism or disagreement with the quoted terminology.'

I was curious about the answer, so I did what you should have done instead of just posting the obvious link and followed your link and posted the answer. :P
