"Some people claim also to have blocked cut holes by carefully placing a 'chad' (the cut out rectangle of card) into a hole to 'edit' a card, but I'm a bit sceptical myself."
It's true - we used to do it occasionally (but only for single use decks). Put the chad back in and then go over it with pencil - compressed the card slightly to get a nice tight fit and supposedly filled in any gaps with graphite - Oh the things we used to do in the 70s.
While I agree with the thrust of your comment, it must be pointed out that greens in general believe
1) Nuclear power is much too dangerous and the waste problem will kill us all. Therefore it has no place on a green grid
2) Hydro requires dams which will (a) flood wilderness areas inhabited by endangered species and (b) regulate the downstream flow, removing the 'natural' flooding and drought, again endangering the ecology.
So, while it makes sense to use nuclear and hydro, all the while the Australian government is in the pocket of the Watermelon party (green on the outside, red in the middle) it will never happen.
"and their interest is not having to send 2,000 letters, hear 2,000 people and investigate 2,000 computers,”
So, why don't APACOR just start 2000 civil copyright infringement lawsuits against 2000 account holders and send out 2000 'settlement' letters? Or can't they be bothered either?
Add to that that you get one 'porn' hit for the front page and another 'porn' hit for every story that you go to - and yet another when you leave that story and return to the home page.
At that rate I'd have about 40 from work today just going through the tech sections in various news.com publications.
