Google Incorporates Site Speed Into PageRank Calculation

snsr Re:Google Slows My Site Down (202 comments)

my average page load time is 19.5 seconds and slower than 99% of sites

That's a seriously slow load time; I doubt it's due solely to your inclusion of Google-hosted content. Are you using shared hosting?

In summary, Dreamweaver has not got these technologies right

Dreamweaver's WYSIWYG rendering engine is a joke, and it always has been. The app is a text editor with code highlighting, plain and simple.

China To Connect Its High-Speed Rail To Europe

snsr Re:US is in trouble (691 comments)

Unless something major changes pretty soon, the US is totally and completely screwed

You're defining an entire nation based on your interpretation of.. what, exactly? Mass media news? Seriously, the quote above is one of the most uninformed, calloused, and pessimistic things I've read in quote some time. America is a nation of capable, creative, industrious people - we'll make it through this, and hopefully be wiser for it.

EU ACTA Doc Shows Plans For Global DMCA, 3 Strikes

snsr On intellectual property.. (406 comments)

ACTA is a fucking steaming pile of shit. A "trademark treaty" written by corporations, and intended only to protect the "copyrights" of said corporations.

A property right is a positive right: it gives you the freedom to use, sell, etc. something you own. These are rights governments must protect, by preventing activities (such as theft or vandalism) that would endanger them.

A copyright is an entirely negative right: it gives you no new freedoms, merely the ability to prevent others from something they would otherwise be allowed to do. It gives one individual (the copyright holder) full control of a whole market (the sale of their writing). This is a monopoly, something governments must protect us from.

Copyright is not a natural right, but merely an outdated invention from the era of the printing press. To call copyrighted works “intellectual property” corrupts thought, by subjecting those who want to replace the invention with a more effective one to nonsensical claims of “you’re stealing my property”.

snsr Re:What's the big deal? (245 comments)

Indeed - someone needs to post Colin Holder's personal info, history of residence, credit cards, and bank info. I'd pay £10 for that.

40 Million Identities Up For Sale On the Web

snsr Re:Easy lads, not everything is corrupt (245 comments)

Mr. Holder is clearly a criminal. His database is comprised solely of stolen, private information. He is charging for access to this database. He should be prosecuted.
