publiclurker by math I take it you mean (69 comments)

all of the money lost by not selling unproven crap to the public for a quick buck. Remember son, you can't just cherry pick a single instance using hindsight to make your case for greed.

Espionage Campaign Targets Corporate Executives Traveling Abroad

publiclurker she's an accountant (101 comments)

and IT did wipe all of the computers with the possible exception of the one that the CFO's kids tried to use as a panini press. the only thing usable from that system was the memory, which I gave to a friend that had a similar system. the ignorance of the executives did have one advantage. Every 6 months they demanded the hottest systems on the market for their critical web surfing and minesweeper games. It would order these systems and take out a lot of the extra memory, etc and give it to the engineers for their CAD systems.

Espionage Campaign Targets Corporate Executives Traveling Abroad

publiclurker and then get fired for not doing your job (101 comments)

Since it is your job to protect them from these risks, not to produce stupid policies that get in the way of their "work". I managed to get a few nice laptops from my wife's former bosses. They were so loaded with malware that the barely functioned. Rather than admit that they were responsible, the point hairs simply bought new laptops and discarded the old ones.

Washington Dancers Sue To Prevent Identity Disclosure

publiclurker so it wasn't a stipper at all. (461 comments)

Too bad your mechanical manhood doesn't do anything about actual threats. Blaming strippers however, lets you transfer everything into women, which you probably have additional problems with, hence the need for your attempts at augmenting your manhood.

Washington Dancers Sue To Prevent Identity Disclosure

publiclurker Re:Yes, but the real problem is being ignored. (461 comments)

It was probably one of you fellow gun nuts that killed him with his and not a stripper. Of course,we wouldn't expect someone like you to be man enough to admit this. Hence the need for compensation.

publiclurker Re:Yes, but the real problem is being ignored. (461 comments)

Last time I checked, the existence of strippers in nearby houses is not a source of danger for my families. this is not the case of a bunch of amo-sexuals. Besides, I thought all those guns and tapes of Rambo part two were supposed to make gun nuts supermen.
