Why 'Cyber Crime' Should Just Be Called 'Crime'

spleen_blender Re:As soon as they ... (368 comments)

To whom are messages usually sent in organized crime?

Generally I believe it is rivals, not communities of law abiding citizens.

Does that really not make a difference to you?

Why 'Cyber Crime' Should Just Be Called 'Crime'

spleen_blender Re:As soon as they ... (368 comments)

I speak as if it is the only kind that has the INTENT of creating a chilling effect.

But that isn't the only kind, organized crime will often try to dissuade competition and create warnings to rivals and send messages with violence. I'm not really sure what I think of that part of it, but I do know that crimes where the action actively intends to send a message should be punished more than crimes with action and no intended message. We as a society have the ability to make laws to try to form a future society in an image we want.

I want a society where there are no people who have thoughts or beliefs which would be considered "hateful", as in racism, sexism, homophobia, etc. By punishing those more harshly I believe it adds momentum toward reaching that destination.

spleen_blender Re:Don't add complexity (368 comments)

You say "less punishment" where you could easily have said the other person deserves "more punishment".

Why is that?

Yeah, then they just mod you a troll or overrated and keep going on with their ridiculous overinflated egos spouting stupidity as if it is insight.

So depressing... I remember back in the day when... ah fuck it. I don't even care about the nostalgia anymore.

Is premeditated murder thought crime compared to 2nd degree murder?

spleen_blender Re:As soon as they ... (368 comments)

Not you, for sure.

The intent of other crime isn't the chilling effect though. So are you arguing intent doesn't matter and only the consequences of actions matter? Because I can eviscerate you on that topic if you want.

Or are you implying hate crime doesn't intend to create a chilling effect? I find it hard to believe you could be so stupid as to think that and simultaneously be capable of operating a computer.

No, she isn't the goal. The goal is revenge... not to send a message to anyone but to satisfy his twisted perspective of justice, regardless of his state of mind at the time.

I'm blown away he's gotten (5, Insightful). This community is fucking dying if crap like this is thought of as insightful. It is shallow and petulant thinking.

You're also ignoring the fact that hate crime has the intent of causing a chilling effect throughout a community IN ADDITION TO the direct harm caused to their target. It objectively causes more harm than normal non "hate" crime.

You're a fucking brainiac.

Coincidence of differing associations (race, gang, etc) is not the same as motive as you're describing though.

imo hate crime charges should ONLY be pursued when it is clear that the race, sex, etc was the motivating factor and not simply coincidental.

spleen_blender Re:As soon as they ... (368 comments)

Oh come on... you're nitpicking semantics. And love is not the opposite of hate anyway, apathy is. Which is what non- "racism motivated crime" et al. IS.

Normal murder the person killing has apathy for the life of the other person. It is in the way of them obtaining what they want. Burglary, contract killing, gang wars, revenge, etc.

HATE crime is committing the act not because you don't care who they are and they are an obstacle to your goal, but because THEY ARE THE GOAL.

Can you really not see that distinction?

Let's just do away with different degrees of murder and manslaughter too then. Since motive doesn't matter apparently. Accidentally kill a guy in a car accident? Just as bad as plotting and executing your ex wife since the result of their actual actions are the same. DERP.

Mazda Claims 70 mpg For New Engine, No Hybrid Needed

spleen_blender I'm pretty ignorant (576 comments)

But I thought when oil was refined that both diesel and regular as well as a bunch of other products just by the nature of how the hydrocarbons separate.

I guess another way of saying it is after diesel is created in its maximum quantity per unit of oil, can the byproducts be further refined into other fuels including regular gas?
