Guilty until proven innocent, then?

But it's a common misconception that the cards are the problem, when really it's the database plans that need scuppering. I got pasta and mud on my last No2ID hoodie, so I will soon be buying more merchandise to wear proudly around Bristol and hopefully swell their coffers a little. Think about doing the same! I don't think I'm exaggerating when I say that they are a hugely important cause and need all the help they can get to help safeguard the future of democracy in this country.

I see your game, Lester!
Totally correct, my man. The military industrial complex is definitely to blame for all these animals and people turning homo. But also, it seems to be the only way to get rid of 'em! I have to say, that last step of yours took application of some serious friggin logical genius. That turns me on and I am totally hot for you and bat bugs, right now. Smoochies?
This is naught but an vile anachronistic bedevilrie, I prithee! Such individuall as aforespoke hath not one place in this time of heathen rationalry. Mark these words and return their wicked sowells back from whence they hath arrived, to the century of playgue, fylth and Shaykespyr. Or, at the verrie least, By The Lord's Dyvyne Hand, removeth of their besmyrcked fayces their 3G moabyl telyphoans and of their desk the broad-banded inter webbe for of this madjick, they have not an atomme of apprecyation.
Curseth they awl! And a pox on their festivities and diseased halls, both!
"Such deals can also enable more innovation by juicing manufacturers' R&D budgets."
Yeah, bollocks. The negative-impact-on-product-quality ruse is a classic defence for imminent-wing-clip multinationals making huge stacks of money for shareholders at the expense of their locked-in customer base. Multinational execs never spend money on R&D at the expense of shareholder profit as they must maintain the confidence of their funders in order to keep drawing their pork.
Some persons less charitable than I may suggest that the gentleman featured in this story deserves to have his house knocked down for his complete failure to understand the proper contextual usage of the word "incredulous".
I, however, laugh in the face of semantics (but not angry workmen in JCBs).

I have spotted a lady commentors on here and, of course, dear Ms. Bee must also count as a reader of this publication but I will eat my space suit helmet/left moon boot/own head if 50% of the Reg's readership is female.

I just went and checked out their website. Their manifesto is unchanged from 2004. Their September 2008 update has been printed on paper, scanned and then uploaded as a PDF. I think that pretty much says everything about their commitment to the Internet.
People like this really do make me wonder about their motives. I have a hunch they want to shout about something, anything, then pick whatever seems to be the one which will generate the most publicity. Why don't they pick a topic that actually matters, say... nuclear arms, HIV, corporate crime, government restrictions of freedom, overfishing, atmospheric pollution, etc. etc. etc. instead of one that offends their petty moral sensibilities? The cynic in me wants to believe it is because it will generate column inches and get their names in the media. But that would be just TOO ironic.
Small minded, useless idiot.
I think this is probably well intentioned, but by God, there are some dumb f*cks running this country. This is the kind of sh*t that was poured int he ears of my Russian ex whilst she was still at school. You know, before the Iron Curtain came down. You know, when Stalin was in power. She still calls him The Devil.
When we start fearing our own children and neighbours, we will surrender the last vestiges of freedom we currently possess.
Resist these idiots. Spend the money on some f*cking history lessons instead, please.
