After repeated warnings Facebook bans Britain First for 'inciting hatred'

Max Jalil

Re: Facebook bans Britain First

You have a point but "limited emigration" - you can't really stop stop people leaving! Also perhaps we should judge the Church of England on how it it is in Uganda as Islam is judged by it's extremists. You can be the above and not a racist, but are you?

Re: the white working class children in Rotherham, Telford and Rochdale

I bet there are plenty of white, non Muslim child rapists in Rotherham, just not in this gang. Cyril Smith?

Trojan horse school thing was mostly a convenient myth for the papers "Five senior school leaders accused of involvement in the Trojan horse controversy in Birmingham are free to return to the classroom, after the government’s case against them was found to involve an “abuse of justice” by government lawyers." https://www.theguardian.com/education/2017/may/30/trojan-horse-tribunal-five-birmingham-teachers-islam

And kids in care and the white working class are certainly an oppressed minority but who really are the oppressors?

How are sharia courts any different to any other non-legal forms of dispute mediation (i.e. ACAS) that we are encouraged to use before resorting to clogging up the courts?

Giant planet pileups in far-flung star systems: Computer says yes

Max Jalil

Not quite...

I believe the planets fall inwards whilst they are orbiting within the gas field (due to drag) then when they enter the clear area they continue orbiting in this area as there is no drag!

GiffGaff goes titsup again in 'leccy cable gaffe

If I didn't know any better

I'd think Giffgaff was a masterstroke by O2 to ditch all their non profitable data hungry users and move them onto a second class service. It is odd that the O2 infrastructure was unaffected during this outage and GiffGaff didn't even have a spare pc!

EU halts carbon trading after 'concerted' hack attacks

Max Jalil

Almost as pointless as winning

$10,000 in iTunes vouchers

'Climategate' university to open up data

Max Jalil

What a waste of £600,000

for " exploring ways of making data and methods more openly available" - information that should be in the public domain anyway for peer review and transparency, and is unlikely to be any less accessible or the culture to be any less secretive after some pointless guilt money has been thrown at it.

The money would be better spent on the hackers.

US women protest for the right to bare

Max Jalil

For equality and freedom!

Absolutely - imposing dress rules on women that don't apply to men based on modesty is no different to requiring women to wear a burka in those countries with higher morals - can't criticise both!

NotW bosses fight back over hacking claims

Max Jalil


If I am not mistaken the mobile phone "hacking" in question is merely the accessing of mobile phone voice mail messages by the guessing of the PIN or USING THE DEFAULT PIN which is the equivalent to say a paranoid partner listening to your voicemails (wrong I know - but hacking?). The real crime is the ignorance of people who really should know better leaving sensitive information on COMPLETELY INSECURE systems which they then do not protect at all by even changing the PIN. Talk about laeving the door wide open.

What a missed opportunity to educate people about basic information security instead of scaring them witless.

Nothing is secret or uncopyable anymore anyway.

US gov asked Twitter to stay up for Iran protests

So who controls the truth 2.0?

I wonder if that is the ONLY influence the US gov has on the new media given their history in this region. Censorship is not the only way to alter perceptions.


Half of Brits abuse apostrophe's

Max Jalil

Let's ban the apostrophe

It only causes SQL inline code issues, and while weare at it what is the point of upper and lower case other than to cause duplicate key issues?

New no-advertising domain will deter some cybersquatters

Max Jalil

So, it's another big 'phone book

But I I already use google or yell or scoot or 192... and what is to stop cybersquatters registering the common missspellings as now, and I'm sure that most net users have been shocked out of hopefully typeing in company names or acronyms into the address bar on the off chance that the correct site will appear (Symbian 'phone user).

Just another big scam.

The DNA database and you

Have they not heard of deduplication?

RE: Total number of subject profiles v Estimated total number of individuals

I am concerned that if they have to estimate the number of individuals their samples are taken from the process of matching one individual to the database is not as precise as is made out.

The estimate could be due to uncertainty in the number of identicat twins or other clones in the system!

BMW unwraps electric Mini

Max Jalil

How green?

As grid electricity is mostly generated from burning stuff, and allowing for transmission losses through the grid, inneficiancies in the car, including lugging around an extra 1/3 of a tonne I wonder how many miles per gallon equivalent of gas or coal burned at the powerstation this mini is?
