Re: gender-neutral languages
What's worse about this is that Chinese doesn't have gender-neutral pronouns. When spoken, there's no differentiation between He, She and They/It - but when written, the characters used are different for each. That means that whatever research they did on this was either based on a false premise or not explained correctly.

As long as people have the ability to record audio going through their PC soundcard, it will be impossible to prevent streamripping. Adding DRM doesn't stop the ability to run a sound recording application to record the track as it plays back. This is why I dislike DRM, because it just prevents one aspect of illegally sharing and distributing music and video - and yet so much effort and money is put into running and supporting it. Dum dum.
