Re: How do they get away with not complying with legal orders
"I mean, it's unfortunate that this means employees will be caught in the middle, and sometimes they'll be fired and it won't be possible to prove why, but how else is crime going to be eradicated from the face of the Earth?"
BTW, I did not say they would go to jail. You put that word in my mouth.

"In short, she argued that Microsoft knew that there a big and persistent problem with women being paid less than men for the same job – even when the women were found to have out-performed their male colleagues – but didn’t take steps to figure out why and fix it."
If what she alleges actually exists, then it's an open and shut case since there are clear laws against that. But instead we are told about the outcomes instead, which could have many other reasons for existing.
This is the same outcome-based thinking that says the fact that blacks in the US have a higher incarceration rate than whites "proves" the legal system is racist and rigged.
Re: It didn't stop the Trump administration reimposing sanctions and a travel ban
For decades the Russians have been friends with the Left, but that's not "us." Now suddenly the Left is calling the Russians nogoodniks, obviously because Hillary and then the rest of the Democrats tried to connect Trump to them in a treasonous way.
It was easy for them to abandon their old friends now, since the Russians gave up communism a while back.

I'd guess you threw in that ordinary question to come off less like the fanatic partisan hater you appear to be.
Yes I've wondered, and I have researched it too. Sure enough, the US is not as far left as Europe. And it's not just me that thinks so. Ph we have our festering pockets of liberalism, typically decaying cities run by Democrats.
If you want to blame me for the difference, I shant stop you. Don't agree tho.
Re: (But we don't allow political adverts on TV).
It's easy to say "Turn it off," but we all know that's not going to be possible for many. Those poor SOB's have little else in life, if you can call that "living."
My "TV" is the view I get hiking across beautiful places found only out of doors. No ads out there!
Well, there is the occasional billboard, but I have plans for those... >:-)
> "When did this become a partisan politic outlet, anyway - a very one sided one."
Actually the Reg is LESS partisan-left than it was a year ago, if you can believe it. Still pretty far left, but that's typical for anything coming from Britain or Europe. Part of the territory.
It was getting so ugly last year, that I guess the money people realized the politics was getting in the way of revenue. Would help if they sacked one or two of their contributors from San Francisco. Those folks make the Brits look like Margret Thatcher.
Re: Shop Local
China does buy a lot of US bonds, yes, but I fail to see why that should entitle them to be the preferred supplier for US Government purchases. There's an old saying that covers this:
When you owe a man ten dollars, It's your problem.
When you owe him ten million dollars, it's HIS problem.

"But those efforts have been met with disdain and mockery, particularly an attempt to justify the inclusion of right-wing bait-box Breitbart as a “trusted source” of news."
We get it Kieren, You consider all conservative thought to be illegitimate. Just so you know, we on the right consider the WAPO and the NYT to be Democrat house organs. Yet they are somehow treated as if they were unbiased, while news outlets that don't go along with the leftist mantra are "bait boxes."
Why does the Reg continue to publish this person's one-sided opinions?

Re: Narrative, tick
No, they are much more plausible than the DNC withholding the supposedly "hacked" computer from the FBI while hiring a private company to do that same "investigation." Sure enough, the well-paid-for verdict from Crowdstrike was that yes, it was those rascally Russians wut done it. Oh, and we must just take their word for it, since the Federal Bureau of Investigation was frozen out by the DNC.
I've tried DDG. Might be okay in some areas, but I've got work to do in IT and I search all day long. With DDG I get frustrated trying to reach the info I need. With google it's usually done in moments. This keeps happening.
I really dislike Google, but their tech results are far better. Sorry DDG.

Re: @Bronek Flaming idiot, social justice warrior and political hack
So according to you, if the US doesn't want open borders and many millions of global unfortunates flooding in, we must go to all the "bad" countries and sort them out. Um, let's say we did that, how long before you start vilifying us for our warlike ways?

> "...we found a fire around the hole at the deck of the mobile launcher..."
It sounds like something apart from the rocket caught on fire somehow. Yet it's to be assumed that the launcher's exposed parts will feature nothing flammable which could burn during a launch. That leaves either a straight up engine fire within the mobile launcher itself, or some sort of fuel leak associated with the rocket above.
Let's hope it was only a burning diesel engine and not some unruly fuel lines.
That sinking feeling
<em>"Oh, and the summer heat wreaking havoc on my CPU? The heatsink was broken. We're water-cooled now, baby!"</em>
How does one "break" a heat sink? Aren't they basically aluminum blocks with fins on? A hammer blow could do it, but that would wreck the CPU it's attached to.
Come clean Richard. I'm guessing you installed a bigger heat sink and forgot the conduction paste. Or perhaps some debris got in between. If so, you're lucky your CPU isn't a fried chip now. ;-)
Re: A word from Big John
No, I just decided to delete my registration here. I got tired of being silently censored by the staff here for my political beliefs. The ElReg editors in their wisdom placed me on their "must vet" list (secretly) which had the effect of holding up my posts while allowing my detractors to freely harass me.
After leaving I found I could read what goes on here with much more aplomb and a lot less disgust. Still slanted tho.
This organization is sick. They don't even see that what they've done is totally wrong and indefensible. I got that impression directly from one of the editors, who didn't even bother denying what they had done to me. BTW, I only signed up again a moment ago, just because I happened to see my name mentioned by my old antagonists. ;-/
I won't be posting under this name after this, because the same censorship would occur again. I wouldn't mind so much if they made it clear to everyone what they were doing to conservatives. It's the sneaky underhanded treatment that ticks me off. And since they were reading all my posts before allowing them on the site, I couldn't expose them for what they are. This is why we conservatives keep saying we're being suppressed by leftists. It's happening.
So enjoy your little protected bubble, guys. ;-/
