As Amazon Grows In Seattle, Pay Equity For Women Declines

visualight Re:I bet Amazon would love to hire more women. (495 comments)

Maybe you're offended by the way he put it, but his point is valid. As far as 'anecdotes' go, what do you think all of these social (ahem) "science" theories are based on? A lot of fucking anecdotes that's what. A lot of "the facts don't support that claim" statements that are based on biased "meta-studies" that are in turn based on bullshit. The academics entrenched in our universities have created a vast framework that rivals Scientology, all of it *designed* to justify their own continued existence.

The biggest problem with this entire landscape is that it is NOT a bottom up revolutionary effort to change our society. It is a top-down social engineering effort driven by people in POWER. The rest of us live in the real world where men and women are different, have different preferences and different priorities in life. And MOST of us are okay with that.

As Amazon Grows In Seattle, Pay Equity For Women Declines

visualight Re:TFA is a crappy piece of socialist propaganda (495 comments)

Nope, you got it wrong.
"Women are not paid less if they are doing the same jobs and spending the same time doing them as men do, " -- is NOT demonstrably false.

The underlying statistics show that any differences are insignificant when all factors are accounted for. It's just the truth, sorry if it doesn't help validate your mission to find injustice in the United States.

Handicapping the job market to eliminate differences in assertiveness, aggression, negotiating abilities, et al is what? Socialist? I personally don't care, but call it what it is. The bottom line is, if women on average are not on par with men in these areas then they are not EQUAL. Handicapping the system to make them equal is a kind of socialism.

Debian Votes Against Mandating Non-systemd Compatibility

visualight Re:Another Annoying Dependency? (575 comments)

I remember not caring about sound at all before PA. It just worked, and I never had to fuck with it. I also remember PA being forced on me 3 years before it should have been, and fighting to keep it out of my life the entire time. PA was completely unnecessary , there were already BETTER solutions available.

visualight Re:This is the same community (575 comments)

The people who are in favor of systemd are all internet posers. IRL everyone is against it. My personal experience anyway. Well, I work in data centers and not on a laptop at starbucks, so maybe I really am the minority.

Systemd won all the hipsters who think Gnome devs make good decisions. The working sys admins are still on the other side of the room, admiring BSD.

"Automatic mounting at boot and on other system events is handled by systemd"

It refuses to boot when there is not a valid reason to halt the boot process. It is one of many design flaws in systemd. These problems are REAL and affect REAL people.

Moreover, the bullshit forced dependency and other less than honorable methods that got systemd forced onto the entire fucking planet is a part of this issue that VERY relevant and MATTERS.

You're fucking liars, manipulators, and propagandists, the lot of you. And that, ALL BY ITSELF, is reason enough to reject systemd and POS/Linux

Dude, there isn't *anyone* who doesn't understand the technical 'loophole' you are discussing. If you'd like to learn more about honest discourse, or at least mask you're obvious disingenuous tactics please sign up for a 12 step program at the end of which you just might realize just how fucking transparent you are.

Bounties vs. Extreme Internet Harassment

visualight Re:Yes that is exactly what feminist women want. (716 comments)

Hey, there is no one outside of your cult that will ever buy in to the idea that monsters like Elliot Rogers are somehow the product of the Patriarchy. So just shut the fuck up ok? Also, you are not beta, omega, mangina , white knight or whatever. You're just weak, in all around, gender neutral kind of way.

Did you just say Linux is a culture of broken unreliable systems? What and now you and Poettering are here to save us?

Debate Over Systemd Exposes the Two Factions Tugging At Modern-day Linux

visualight Re:Not true. There's a different division (863 comments)

The shell is never going to be irrelevant (except for idiots) and no one is worried that the month they spent learning bash is wasted now. Seriously your post has got to be the dumbest thing I've heard or read in this whole debate. Seriously, you think 20 year unix->linux veterans are daunted by the idea of "learning systemd"? Christ boy, think about it, these are people that have had to become overnight experts on some thing, like dozens of times, and they still do it on a regular basis.

People that are older, smarter, and wiser than YOU realize that the basic concept of systemd is just fucked.

Are you one of those kids that thinks knowing Puppet is a skill?

Bullshit.

Everyone I know that is either (1)uninterested in the systemd debate, or (2) actually in favor of systemd is (3) a completely incompetent hack in most areas that (4) have mostly bad ideas generally.

The perspective that thought NetworkManager / Avahi should be a default 'on' in a server install is so completely fucked up that it shouldn't be trusted on any topic.

It's not like no one's asking, there's no way Mark Rein isn't aware of all the threads posted, he is clearly avoiding the question. Why not just say yes or no? In either case what's motivating Epic to pretend we're invisible? Can slashdot help force an answer? Would doing so push Epic to drop any Linux plans out of spite? http://utforums.epicgames.com/search.php?searchid= 255245 (search "linux" on epics ut3 forums)"
