The Linux Foundation Releases Annual Linux Development Report

specific Re:Yes but... (101 comments)

Or you could just take note that Linus is becoming more of a manager than a raw code producer.

Of course, this is completely normal and part of the process a developer goes through in their lives as they progress through their stages.

Its just something to note, no need to get all offended, especially since we're not even talking about you, Fanboy. Linus will eventually stop writing code for Linux all together for any number of reasons, including the inevitable death.

Pull your panties out of your crack and move on. No one is insulting your God.

Do you always blow a tampon when someone expresses their discontent with an author's presumed attitude? Did I effectively express that you are a bitch for being so insulting?

Proposed Posting of Clients List In Prostitution Case Raises Privacy Concerns

specific Re:Has there been a trial? (533 comments)

There was a photo of this slag sucking off a dog. She blew Lassie. Here's a comment I found by someone who claimed to have visited her studio twice, but only for Zumba, not the happy ending.

"Charges that she will be facing are not only prostitution but drugs, tax evasion, coercion, child welfare and a host of others. When it finally goes public it is going to be a juggernaut. Based on what I was told, her clients (since the investigation had started) may be bummed out to hear that Alexis wasn't the only one filming them. Good luck with that one fellas if the DA wants to pursue a larger case...and this is one that could be termed a "career maker"."

If you're so concerned about the presumption of innocence maybe you should focus your energies on the Zimmerman fiasco.

Einstein Letter Critical of Religion To Be Auctioned On EBay

specific Re:Church and Einstein (414 comments)

I would disagree with the idea that conquest is dead. These days it's less about land boundaries and physical occupation than it is about psychological subversion. Conquest is very much alive.

Einstein Letter Critical of Religion To Be Auctioned On EBay

specific Re:Church and Einstein (414 comments)

For the most part, religion is not about being pressured to do good deeds. It's about being pressured to not commit heinous acts against one another, under the threat of suffering consequences in the afterlife. It's entirely possible to live and let live without performing a list of "good deeds".

Obama Blocks Chinese Wind Farms In Oregon Over National Security

specific Re:Obligated to point out another security concern (226 comments)

I so wish I had mod points for you. I bet money borrowed at negative interest that h4rr4r, like all moonbats, will pretend you didn't point out the fallacy of his/her remarks. Slashdot seems to be going the way of Digg & Reddit. Infested by rabid progressives.

Does Grammar Matter Anymore?

specific Re:It's like this. (878 comments)

In fact, "wrong" grammar could be a part of a subculture where the proper one is bad.

Poppycock! Please provide one example, in English, where grammatical ground-rules collide with colloquial confluence in a manner which offends one's sense of "right & wrong" or "good & bad".

Microsoft's 'Cannibalistic Culture'

There's one number that isn't bigger than last time: the amount Microsoft is charging to upgrade to the new version of Windows.

What does that tell you?

FDA Approves HIV Home-Use Test Kit

specific Re:It's only 92% accurate ... (186 comments)

No test is 100% accurate.

However, the 99% will accept it & our market research has shown strong possibilities for the 99% dollar. BIG dollar! They're very smart to go after that dollar.

AT&T Clarifies Data Limitations On "Unlimited" Data Plans

specific Re:So why offer an unlimited plan in the first pla (247 comments)

anyone still with AT&T at this point is already a certified masochist.

Guilty as charged, although I'm planning to port my number to a VOIP service soon & discontinue cell service almost completely. My VOIP provider has an app, so I can still use my old cell phone number as long as I have a decent wifi connection. I'll pick up a pay-as-you-go cell for those few times when I just can't wait for said wifi connection. I'm finding that I use my cell phone for actual phone calls less and less anyway.
