Confessions of an Internet "Shock Jock"

tommasz Making things worse (194 comments)

PCs are increasingly complex and there are lots and lots of things that can go wrong with them. Users are desperate for explanations for why their particular machine doesn't seem to run as well as it used to or is supposed to. Snake oil salesman like this doofus make a living selling simple explanations to complex problems that seem logical but are often wrong. Sometimes not just wrong but maliciously wrong. Instead of helping they're just making things worse. And rags like InfoWorld are just as bad, overlooking conflicts of interest and technical correctness in their pathetic quest for pageviews. Don't give them the attention they so desperately crave otherwise you're just playing their game.

Obama Losing Voters Over FISA Support

tommasz A race to the bottom (1489 comments)

Yes, Obama screwed up (and lost my vote). But saying it's sort of okay just because McCain is just as much of a screw up is just plain wrong. They're both on a race to the bottom. Both of them. If we're lucky we'll get the lesser of two evils, but it's still evil.

Surprisingly, Hillary Clinton voted against the FISA bill.
