EFF Tells Court That the NSA Knowingly and Illegally Destroyed Evidence

qeveren Re:Destroying evidence should have worse penalty (269 comments)

It's called 'spoilation inference', and actually works kinda like that. Not so much an automatic guilty as "the destroyed evidence shows conscience of guilt and therefore strongly supports the opposing side".

EFF Tells Court That the NSA Knowingly and Illegally Destroyed Evidence

qeveren Re:So... to summarise: (269 comments)

That's... sort of how it works, but not exactly. Depending on the jurisdiction involved, this leads to 'spoilation inference', where the destroyed evidence is considered 'conscience of guilt' and the court will consider the destroyed evidence as strongly against the spoiling party.

Nintendo To Split Ad Revenue With Streaming Gamers

qeveren Re:Sorry, but no. (110 comments)

Why would one WANT people to be interested in Nintento's properties, if this is how they're going to treat their fans? The proper course of action here is to say, "Fuck you Nintento," and stop giving them one's business.

qeveren Re:The FCC has no right to dictate terms (208 comments)

What you need is the gov't to come along as say "Hey our nation's telecommunications infrastructure is critical to the nation's security, so we're nationalizing it," and then they take it away from the telcos and sell access back to them. Job done.
