Andrew Auernheimer Case Uncomfortably Similar To Aaron Swartz Case

nstlgc Uncomfortably similar? (400 comments)

Andrew Auernheimer, aka 'weev', former president of the trolling group GNAA, was not doing this out of some kind of altruism. He did not do this to point out the vulnerability. By his own admittance, "[he] did this because [he] despised people [he] think[s] are unjustly wealthy and wanted to embarass them."

If you think Auernheimer is anything like Aaron Swartz, think again.

Australia Attorney General Proposes New Laws To Stop Twitter Trolls

nstlgc Re:People get brave (213 comments)

Trolling is in the eye of the beholder. I'm sure when Chanology was going on, Scientology would have LOVED a law like this.

What you're saying is "I don't need it, so nobody needs it". I hope you know how stupid that sounds.

Hackers Dump Millions of Records From Banks, Politicians

nstlgc Re:Great plan (310 comments)

If kids from Anonymous have the info, you can be sure others were there before them. Anonymous are far from rocket scientists.

As such, it doesn't really matter whether they release this information or not. The information is compromised and should be considered unsafe.

Nintendo 3DS XL Is Out Now

nstlgc Re:Games? (90 comments)

It is called 3D because it's (for the most part) a 3D Mario game (like Super Mario Galaxy, Mario 64, etc) and not a 2D Mario game (like New Super Mario Bros, the classic Mario games, ...). The raccoon suit is from SMB3 indeed, but apart from that it doesn't borrow that much elements that are exclusive to SMB3.

JavaScript Botnet Sheds Light On Criminal Activity

nstlgc Re:uh... only if you run it (50 comments)

I think it is safe to say (read: pull out of my ass) that 99% of all people surfing the web do so with Javascript enabled, all the time.

I am one of them. And I will keep on doing so. Your scaremongering isn't going to trick me into installing NoScript.
