Aussie Government Gives PDF the Thumbs Down

ruf10 Not the format (179 comments)

It's not the format wrong, it's users. We in Poland have the same problem with gov's documents. Those morons write documents in ms word, then print them, then scan the printed document and embed scanned image in PDF. PDF *can* contain and preserve the content as text, with format and layout. the user who choose to misuse it is the problem.

Microsoft Poland Photoshops Black Guy To White One

ruf10 Re:What about the Asian guy? (964 comments)

True, you don't know the streets of Poland. There are many times more Asians, especially Koreans than Black people including Africans and Afroamericans. Showing Black guy in polish ad simply won't work. There are very few of them, we don't really have racist problem against them and we really don't have to be PC on this.
