You must realise GCHQ are doing exactly the same, and that everyone's data is at risk?

Re: Stop the rot

His son may well have serious mental health issues. A "critical thinking course" is something you might consider.

Re: You Sure?

In the UK it's fine to use the name of competitors' brands, just as long as nothing you say is defamatory.

Well he's clearly right about the school, and now it's much more public. Jacques Szemalikowski is very obviously not fit to be in education.

Brits are so outraged by Amazon, they voted it TOP for shopping

Burch
Holmes

Astroturfing

Seems to be rather a lot of Anonymous posts here defending Amazon to the hilt. Why would you be ashamed? Unless it's one or two people posting dozens of times.

We're not stupid. Unless they pay their taxes I will never use their services. I urge other non-anonymous cowards to do the same.

Re: Amazon user since 1997 here.

It's not fairly competitive. They have an advantage over companies which pay UK tax. I say shut down their UK operation completely until they pay their way. They'll change their tune.

Google, Amazon, Starbucks are 'immoral' and 'ridiculous' over UK tax

Burch

These companies cannot be shamed

That's a waste of time. Change the rules so they can't get away with this, and if they fail to comply tell them the UK will not allow them to do business here.

Re: Christian beliefs and ideals

Neil Armstrong: US space program 'embarrassing'

Burch
Mushroom

Bully for those guys

They got to live the dreams of millions, and think that space exploration is more important than real people trying to live decent lives.

Landing on the moon, as cool as that is, didn't actually propel humanity forward. It was a willy-waving exercise with the Soviets.

Tell us oh great ones. What did the moon landings give us?

Anti-gay bus baron rages at being stuffed in Google closet

Thumb Down

Missing the point

The man aggressively chased other bus providers out of markets across the country.

Doesn't sound to me like Google has done any such thing by the way, he simply sounds like a paranoid headcase.

Beyonce's belly: Most important thing ever, on Twitter

Burch
Holmes

So, if I have this right

An extremely famous woman (arguably the most recognisable living woman) announces that she is pregnant, and the news is spread widely via social media which is largely used to exchange snippets of information.

The only less surprising thing is Reg posters falling over themselves to prove how little they care. It's OK guys, nobody was accusing you of anything.

Google's anonymity ban defied by Thomas Jefferson

Re:distributing your ideas still wasn't cheap

It wasn't, so the viewpoints of the wealthy would obviously reign, much as they do now in the mainstream media. I don't think that is a useful way to judge quality.

Twitter

This rather depends how you use twitter. I don't follow people who tell me what they had for breakfast. As a way to find links for news and comment it is currently peerless. Perhaps you only follow tedious people.
