Manga Images Depicting Children Lead to Conviction in UK

x0ra Re:Distasteful stuff, but should not be illegal (462 comments)

The UK (and most modern "democracy") abuses its people just the same way "totalitarian" regime do, but "our way" is just more subtle, relying not on sheer dominance, but through psychological means, in a way to manufacture consent, in the most despicable way. We are being manipulated, we know we are, but we still continue give the system our consent. North Korean have nothing to lose, and have to be controlled by force. We, however, have so much to lose that we do not have any other choice than continue to give our milk to the system, resistance being futile.

Manga Images Depicting Children Lead to Conviction in UK

x0ra Re:I do not approve of child pornography but (462 comments)

It is not about "justice", it's about getting moms comfortable enough to vote for you in the next election, ie. bending over while you unzip your pants to fuck them bareback for the next mandate. Once you convince the moms, you got the husbands convinced as well (they wouldn't have their wives mad at them and deny them sex), and you got the kids, which are raised by the moms. CP is just the same as 9/11, terrorist, or whatever the daily boogeyman is.

Because moral and ethics are relative concepts. A family member of mine hates jews and pederasts, but her values are not mine.

Manga Images Depicting Children Lead to Conviction in UK

x0ra Re: Good (462 comments)

is it ? The thought police is just getting there one item at a time. SJW are as morally corrupt than gun-trafficking gun-control democrat nuts (Obama (via Operation Fast and Furious), Clinton, Senator Lee...), or other "big shots". Individual freedom is their enemy. Covers like Virgin Killer, Nevermind, Blind Faith are just unthinkable today...

You seem to miss the point. I want the latest software to speed up sorting/filtering/tagging/editing of a 250-to-multi-1000 shoot. And yes, I'm not a casual photographer.

Torvalds: I Made Community-Building Mistakes With Linux

x0ra Re:Society hypocrisy.... (387 comments)

And that's the core of the issue. Linus has better things to do than trying to convince random Red Hat developers he just don't want their crap in his kernel.

Torvalds: I Made Community-Building Mistakes With Linux

x0ra Re:Society hypocrisy.... (387 comments)

It does, because we are not talking about technical comments, technical comments, as good as they are, are not gut feeling. Gut feeling are of the emotional realm. You can't describe that synthetically.

Look at the review of Dave from youtube's eevblog, and you will find the same gut telling, and the same swearing, when it comes down to Chinese piece of shit gizmo cheapo crappy gadget he reviews sometimes. We are in the realm of an electric engineer who has spent many years in the field and has developed a quasi-emotional response to shitty design. He gives the same follow-up on technical stuff, but I have nowhere near the experience and knowledge to follow everything he comments on. He might be full of bs, but the emotional response is a key part of the review. Just the same with LInus.

The world you are praising is a world where everybody has a stick in the arse and is unable to show any emotion, that's not what I want, or praise for. I praise for a world where people SHOW their emotions.

Feel free not to use it, but you have no right to try to remove/truncate it from people enjoying it. Start your OS, feel free to use it, I'm sticking with Linux. See you in 20 years...

Torvalds: I Made Community-Building Mistakes With Linux

x0ra Re:Bitch-ass whiners got their feelings hurt (387 comments)

Current US system is an oligarchy which calls itself a democracy, more hypocrisy along the line. True democracy at the scale of a 300 millions inhabitant country is just bare impossible, AND unsustainable.

x0ra Re:Bitch-ass whiners got their feelings hurt (387 comments)

I'm still waiting for a kick-ass "revolution" from Apple... Look at the BSD, the only one having a bit of visibility is OpenBSD, who is ran by a asshole, just like Linux. FreeBSD, the only other significant BSD is ran by the same assholes old-guards. Also, everybody criticize Pottering, but his software is a core of most distros. To be successful, no matter what, you got to assume having to leave cadavers on the road...

Torvalds: I Made Community-Building Mistakes With Linux

x0ra Re:Society hypocrisy.... (387 comments)

No, Linus gives us his gut feeling. I know I can trust him when he says something is bad, just the same, I know I seriously fucked up, or were unable to make my case when he goes ballistic. I prefer, and value, that behavior over someone who would not answer because he is afraid to say something negative. As I have experience with...

Do you mean he was being non-violent when he said to women to have "Faith That the System Will Actually Give You the Right Raises" ?

Torvalds: I Made Community-Building Mistakes With Linux

x0ra Re:Society hypocrisy.... (387 comments)

I tried this approach. I was nothing but continuously stepped on. I have never been given more respect than after I started to stand my ground and be arrogant. Go figure. The society does not seem to actually work as you would like. If Linus was never arrogant with anybody, Linux would not be as successful as it is now. Linus and Pottering are no different than De Raadt or Stallman.

x0ra Re:Society hypocrisy.... (387 comments)

If you are referring to Linus' 'Guys, this is not a d*#@-sucking contest. If you want to parse PE binaries, go right ahead. If Red Hat wants to deep-throat Microsoft, that's *your* issue.' from http://linux-beta.slashdot.org..., then it is a fully technical criticize of Red Hat policy choices. I don't see anything personal in that. If you have any other quote, please provide information on their context.

You are fantasizing the actual wild west. I guess you also believe CCW laws lead to blood continuously flow down the streets, and more gun laws reduce crime... Whereas a society is just as violent as its culture, mainly created by lieberal MSM...
