Facebook, distributor of deceptive political ads, sues registrar Namecheap over deceptive domain names


Only in England the source of the Skripal fantasy would this title fly

So who gets to decide what is "deceptive" ?

I would say that anyone saying your broken down health care system in England is good is being extremely deceptive but you English keep bleating about it.

Appears you are a government toady who says what he is instructed to say.

Australia's Dick finally drops off


Re: dropped off a *long* time ago

Why does anyone who makes some money become a douche bag environmentalist?

So everyone will think they are great? I admire real people. Not plastic fruit.

It's all hog wash. These hyped up charges meant to tarnish by their very utterance.

Donald Trump promises 'such trouble' for Jeff Bezos and Amazon


Re: Inherited Wealth

So obviously clueless it makes me think you are a 35 year old virgin. Trump had been thinking about this for years. He finally saw the opportunity was right.

You Brits should probably refrain from comment. You're hopelessly uninformed on this topic.


Re: Inherited Wealth

Not sure what anyone's gripe here is. What Trump said was so obviously true I'm not sure why you argue as it only makes you look dishonest or dumb.

Point Blank: Bezos bought the Washington Post for political influence. DUH!

That is even worthy of a "no shist Sherlock" or a "Thank you Captain Obvious!"

It dismays me that you can't see the obvious.

Louisville says yes to Google Fiber. Funny story: AT&T, TWC didn't want that to happen

How ( literally ) can you leave ComCast? I mean that's impossible right?

Computer Science grads still finding it hard to get a job


Re: The point is not to match skills

In the USA the government is essentially replacing citizens with cheap Indian replacements. We're going to elect Trump and shut this down.

All this hubub about ....competition with the illegal drug cartels. Which of course only helps........the illegal drug cartels. The politicians are on the take.

Google grand fromage Eric Schmidt: Backing climate denier lobby a 'mistake'


Re: A tabloid, yes, but still a shameful title

Glo-bull warming is a scam and not science. We all know it.

The Ruling Class Oligarchy keeps trying to sell it though!

The last time Earth was this hot hippos lived in Britain (that’s 130,000 years ago)


ManBearPig! run away! Glo-bull Warming!

Please you guys are nuts if you think we are going to fall for the glo-bull warming scam. It's a power grab and people know it. Please don't be a Ruling Class Oligarchy(tm) shill.

Ex-IT staff claim Disney fired them then gave their jobs H-1B peeps


H1-B exists for a reason? What would that be?

I've been an engineer for a while and I have not seen any skills you cant find domestically. It was essentially set up for what it is being used for by our back stabbing politicians.

Who's right on crypto: An American prosecutor or a Lebanese coder?


Re: Nope, don't care

It all comes down to if the state is more important than the individual. It is not. Thus strong encryption.

Blocking out the Sun won't fix climate change – but it could buy us time


Re: INSANE....there is NO Carbon climate forcing....

There is no man made "Glo-bull" warming. It is crank science for the sake of money and power.

I know you fanbois believe in this crazy chicken little story because it makes you feel like you are part of technology that you don't really understand nor have the power to ever understand it.

Those of us with high technical abilities wrote off glo-bull warming as a huge political scam long ago.

Devs: Barack Obama's gunning for your job!


Re: Typical...

This guy does NOTHING for himself. Not to mention he's a member of the 85 IQ club so he's probably not able to code. His only skill is as a gum runner.


Doubt he did anything. He has never worked a real job in his life. All handed to him because he is the magic one.

Accused Goldman Sachs code pilferer sues FBI for 'wrongful arrest'


Re: Maybe the guy...

Goldman Sachs has ties to the highest level of government. It is pretty obvious to me they are using their connections to prosecute possible competitors in the software space. That's the real background story here.

'Revenge p0rn' kingpin Kevin Bollaert faces 20 years in jail



England is much more screwed up than the USA. And that is saying something in Obamao's America.


The problem is here is your emotions are not what is important. Freedom of speech on the internet IS IMPORTANT.

This guy should be covered by safe harbor. Also the pictures were willingly allowed taken and for that there really can't be any legal remedy.

The remedy is not letting the photos being taken. But here we go again treating women like they are goddesses on a pedestal when most of them are really not the meritorious.

I suspect there will be an appeal and at some point they have to acquit.

UKIP website TAKES A KIP, but for why?


Re: Major update cockup?

Farage is the only person that makes any sense over there in Europe.

Course you pansy socialist types over there will disagree. To that I respond "Isn't it time you come out of the closet?"

Russians hear Tim Cook is gay, pull dead Steve Jobs' enormous erection


Re: Cheap dig

I have to agree. Tim was not in the closet and that is fine. But then someone got the idea it might pay one way another whether in increase sales at able or in political points. So then Tim whipped it out and sausage slapped the world across the face.

I don't put you guys out with talk of my rampant heterosexuality. Why do I have to hear about Mr Gay and his sausage smoking habits? But NO. It's all well and good when the left forces gaybees on us. But NO NO NO....don't disagree! When the left pontificates from on high horse we are not to offend their moral vanity by any means!

Heck I bet you liberals can even see Russia from up on your high horses.

Ok so go be whatever you are. I don't care. Just leave me out of the loop. I don't care about you. Not a bit. I know your ego is so big that it offends. Tough luck. Life is tough. Wear a helmet.

Super Cali goes ballistic, Uber Pool is bogus: Ride sharing biz is illegal in the state, says regulator


Re: It wasn't supposed to be this way

So global warming is this big threat the libtards in Cali tell us to send mo mo mo MOOO money. So then when something comes along to help the supposed crisis they say no no no NOOOO it will cost US money.

Makes you kind of think that global warming is just a scam to grab money. Humm nahhh couldn't be? Could it?

With out a doubt.

Govt control? Hah! It's IMPOSSIBLE to have a successful command economy


Re: Inefficiency

You are wrong Harri Koppel.

Please google "Maxwell's Demon" for the physicist's reasoning why command and control won't work.

Quite simply put: It takes more work to micro manage it all than it takes to do the actual work!

Not to mention politicians are by definition corrupt.

Dead Steve Jobs sued by own shareholders in no-poach pact brouhaha


Re: disgusting

FYI: Please note that every entity involved like Apple and Google are controlled by people at the top who purport to be liberals.

That is the kind of dishonest you get from liberals.

Simian selfie stupidity: Macaque snap sparks Wikipedia copyright row


Riddle me this: A patent is 14 years and done right? How is it that stuff written in the 30's is still copy righted? I side with the folks who are eroding this ridiculous state of affairs. The whole thing is pumped up to benefit big corporations and the litigious. Thus too bad to the monkey guy.

Indie ISP to Netflix: Give it a rest about 'net neutrality' – and get your checkbook out


Re: Amen

Hold on a second. These ISP can start griping when I see every one of them that grips has a viable competitor in their geographic area. These broadband companies milk it for all it is worth and don't put any investment back into the system to improve service. Fact is we need 3 wired service providers for each area and then we'll start getting them to STFU.

NASA: Satellite which will end man-made CO2 debate in orbit at last


Re: Debate settler?

Yes we now know Man Made Global Warming is a complete scam intended to keep the funding going for the weak minded "spread sheet scientists" that endlessly sit and think up ever more dire predictions to recite to the lap dog agitprop press.

FYI: Does not matter how much CO2 there is in atmosphere for the most potent greenhouse gas is WATER VAPOR"

Poll: Climate change now more divisive than abortion, gun control


Uh yeah there is still doubt about MMGW. You must not read much.
