Re: Good old Paypal - Did you know?
Dear me, the standard of commentators on here has lowered somewhat since I was last on.
Not too sure about this
Guideline number 7 seems a bit off. There are plenty of people who are paid to act on behalf of many organisations, in order to promote their goods, services, or act as online reputation managers. Not quite sure why it would be that this is something which is not permitted to be said.
All that guideline number 11 needs is "and no Daily Mail readers" added to it, and it could be out of any sixth form college debating guide.
It was a satirical statement
I live in the UK, like the vast majority of posters on here.
A couple of years ago, that would have been commonly understood on here.
One of the few form of racism still acceptable. I wonder why that would be?
I live in a country which embraces the freedom to disseminate information without undue government censorship.
Instead of wasting time disabling js
You could have used that time to simply search for an authoritative source of information, rather than the deranged ramblings of a bunch of unemployable neckbeards.
Surely the people who are most likely to be subject to these measures are the people most likely to know how to open a CD tray and stick in a GNU/Linux live CD?
Write a letter, and send it 1st class recorded. It'll get there tomorrow , and you'll have your proof of them having received it.
Tor is not the issue
Isn't this merely a bruteforce mysql attack or similar?
I'm not quite sure how the compromising of a service would render a protocol used to connect to that service as being 'unsafe'?
Sure is paid posters in here...
More censorship, and restrictions on freedom.
Great, just what the UK needs.
That probably explains the magnificent job which EDS do of looking after central government IT projects...
He caused some electrons to be moved around which had the effect of some people seeing an advert on a monitor, it's hardly the 'crime' of the century.
I don't even have a bank account.
I pay for absolutely everything with cash. I never leave the house without at least a grand in cash.
What have you done which ranks alongside the work of Pasteur?
Why so anti-Christian?
I can understand it in 14 year olds who are annoyed because their mum took away their xbox, but why on here?
Probably a good thing then,
that he lives in a country which values freedom unless you are found to be guilty.
Is there some reason
why the police think that the normal course of law does not apply to them?
If they have information that a site is being used for crime, then go to court, and get an order to close it.
If they're not going to do that, we simply have a police state where the police censor information they don't approve of.
"The identification, exposure, or termination of employment of or legal actions against current or former insiders, leakers, or whistleblowers could damage or destroy this center of gravity and deter others from using Wikileaks.org to make such information public."
I'm sure this is all just a big coincidence.
How are they going to ensure
that the people watching the streams are complying with the terms of the DPA, with regards to such things as data storage, SARs, and such like?
Sounds legally dubious to me.
It has been obvious for some time
that the US DoD has been carrying out a campaign against both the site, and the people who run it.
I asuume that when you say 'Teh lulz'
that you actually mean criminal charges for disrupting the normal operation of a network.
How will all the angsty teenagers have straw man arguments now?
It's not really explained here
what the dickens does this case have to do with the US?
The company that wants to send its customers to prison.
A simpler solution
would be to never call them, and to not give them your phone number.
that's supposed to be a good thing?
Proportional representation is the way forward.
deserves a medal.
we think a measured WTF is in order.
Is this official El Reg policy?
The education is not free
It is paid for by taxes, not from money which appears out of nothing.
GNU/Hurd is the way forward!
>whilst there are some GUIs for linux, that is the minority.
The minority of what?
>I wouldn't want to experiment in there without a hazmat suit and a box of rabbits feet.
Yeah, we have these things called 'Certs'...
Someone is annoyed that they can't work out how to burn an iso to a CD...
If you can't be bothered to read a man page, and expect everyone to spoon feed you answers, then it's probably best that you don't engage the GNU/Linux community.
It's probably not for you.
If you can't come to terms with reading a man page
Then you probably have no business being a sysadmin.
I haven't been following this much, but this DEA sounds like a way for companies with lots of money to bypass the bothersome task of actually having to take people to court to show how they have had their rights infringed upon.
The idea of running around record shops and independent retailers attempting to get them to sell your 'zine is totally unworkable ...
If it's popular, people will buy it.
I'm a regular on WoS. Why does such a site still exist? Because, even though there's no money left in it, people still want to talk about it.
Get your message prepared, and people will listen to it.
militant atheists making juvenile statements akin to "chrischuns sux0rz!!1111"
Tell it to BSD users?
Why not, both of them probably post on here anyhow.
Why does it matter what name is on it?
It's been signed for, and delivered to the addressee.
What difference does it make what name is used?
Making available for download a torrent file which points towards files hosted by other people is not a crime.
Denying access to that file by means of an attack on the network which hosts the torrent file is a crime.
You sound sorta stressed out there.
Maybe you should use some of your baking skills and heed the advice of http://forums.theregister.co.uk/post/861612 ?
I lived on a Council Estate (in Glasgow, for what it's worth) for 20 years
And never once was I assaulted by anyone other than the police.
If he gets it back unaltered once the police have viewed it
Can I just say
This is like SEO?
Pushing your link to the top?
Well I never.
Well, I know how to make the border change colour on a ZX Speccy, and I can totally hack Kevin Toms Football Manager to give my team a zillion quid.
I'm sure with suitable training I would be able to work out how PLOT, DRAW, CIRCLE and POINT work too.
wouldn't your beef be with the government then, rather than those who choose to block whatever they wish to in their hosts file?
>The religious mind relies heavily on ignorance.
And of course, classifying billions of people whom you have never met, as 'ignorant' must be the absolute apex of intellectual enlightenment.
I'll be glad when the school holidays are over, and all of the angsty 15 year old 'rebellious' crew are back in school.
The possibility that current employees or moles within DoD or elsewhere in the U.S. government are providing sensitive or classified information to WikiLeaks.org cannot be ruled out. It concocts a plan to fatally marginalize the organization.
