Re: We are not doing anything illegal or immoral
"Give to caesar what is caesar's"
Commonly misunderstood. The pharisees' question was designed to elicit a response that was either seditious or look bad to the jewish nationalist audience. The reply would be understood by the audience - Caesar should be given what is rightfully his - i.e. nothing, without actually saying anything that would land Jesus in hot water with the Roman authorities.
Morals and the Law
The moral person requires no laws, for he knows what is right and acts acordingly. Laws are put in place for the immoral and the wicked to force them to behave in a minimally acceptable manner. Those bleating that they obeyed the letter of the law and thus have done no wrong are clearly members of the latter groups rather than the former.
It is time to reach for a bigger legal stick with which to beat the wicked back on to the right path.

Re: "Protest the funerals"?
... for He makes His sun rise on the wicked and on the good, and makes the rain fall upon the upright and the wrongdoers.
Yes the press is already governed by laws - those laws that apply to everybody. What Cameron is arguing against is laws specifically to regulate the press.
What we have here is a first. A PM who hasn't responded to a situation where the existing laws are not being enforced with a "We need more laws." I find myself in agreement with Mr Cameron - and that too is a first.
Just get your friend to carry your lanyard/rfid to all those lessons when you have better things to do.

Well there will be savings resulting from any reduction in data download, and less need to respond to law-suits against copyright claims which will reduce admin costs.
Re: Not theft
adj 1: bringing or deserving severe rebuke or censure
I'm not sure how you stretched my meaning to include condoning and then extended your error by stooping to personal insults.
Reprehensible yes, but not theft.
So ask the user
Hey Mr advertiser why don't you ask the user to change their settings if they visit your site with don't track set? You can explain the advantages of your enhanced experience. Make a good case and people will opt in surely.
Will someone take these out the back and shoot them?
"Wireless Asociation[sic], formerly the Cellular Telephone Industry Association (CTIA). It argued that jailbreaking should not be allowed because users buy handsets, but don't necessarily own the software that runs them."
So replacing the software I don't own with software that I do own is wrong. How is that for fucked up logic.
Re: something is amiss here....
"governments are CRAP at running services like this"
"Virgin Media ... exit service I received, was absolutely dire"
"BT ... I was getting 2 - 4Mbps max"
So privatised services are the solution?

Sending your daughter into a life of slavery in Saudi Arabia is still ok. Priorities - has anyone seen them?
+1 for the last line.
Capitalism's only promise to us proles is that the free market will provide cheaper, and better, goods and services. Marketeers and ad-men ensure it doesn't even do that.
The exam boards compete for examinees - and so it is in their interest to offer examinations that 'support' greater success in the candidates. So no surprise that pass rates and grades achieved continually rise - the few exam boards that stood firm against the trend went bust.
Re: Not likely
Actually, though the Catholic church does not allow condoms or other contraceptives to be used to prevent pregnancy, it recognizes that it is preferable to spreading disease. If your intent in wearing a condom is to prevent the spread of HIV then this is considered less immoral than unprotected sex, though still considered less preferable than abstinence.
The same would be said of taking an oral contraceptive if the intent was one of mitigating an existing illness rather than preventing conception. Indeed the pill itself would not be considered evil only the use to which it is put could become so. Taking a drug to treat an illness is a good thing, regardless of what other uses that drug could be put to.
See http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-11804798 for some coverage.
Since when has being dragged round the shops been child cruelty?
Actually you can buy the galaxy tab in germany. Only Samsung's german subsidiary is barred from selling it, while other retailers are able to continue selling and restocking the galaxy tab from other wholesalers or Samsung subsidiaries.
All public servants in London are paid at a higher rate than equivalent jobs in the provinces. This extra expenditure is covered by higher subsidies from central government rather than local taxation.
And this benefits us how?
Why would anyone other than Apple shareholders want this? Would it result in a better market? Even a better iphone?
So if he's late, he wastes even more time in a pointless 'punishment' that seems to me to be more like dick waving.
3.7G - for an o/s upgrade. Seriously? I mean its not as if they have to include all the world's drivers as they have a small platform set.
“I generally tell Mac users that if they care about security, they should upgrade to Lion sooner rather than later, and the same goes for Windows users, too.”
What? You 'generally' recommend? How's that been working? Recommending a product before it is yet available. I bet his clients have been loving that.

Science and religion not so incompatible after all.
More than one constraining factor
Three factors play a role - available sunlight, rate at which CO2 can be absorbed, and uptake of water. Denser forests may increase the rates for two of these.
No - he said he's moving distro. He could stick with Fedora and use a different DE, such as Xfce. If he wants gnome 2 then move distro - but eventually this option is going to disappear as other distros shift from gnome 2 to gnome 3.
No longer a crime for the police and associated agencies.
The prime characteristic of a police state is that the police are not themselves subject to the rule of law.
"Legal advice was taken beforehand and it was advised and expected that we had a reasonable chance of winning our case."
And you didn't spot the vested interest here. Of course the lawyers 'believe' you have a reasonable chance when it is a guaranteed unreasonable payday for them.
Yeh, and we need armoured foot knights and longbows just in case we need to give the French another kicking.
Tanks have gone the way of the battleship.
God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
Courage to change the things I can,
And wisdom to know the difference.
bzzt to you too
Tornadoes are deep penetration strike aircraft - not so good for 'defence of the realm'. So no, that is no reason to have them sitting at home.
I'm offended by this app but ...
I have no absolute right to go through life unoffended by other people's views. I am more offended by those who wish to suppress the views of others. The tyranny of the majority is tyranny non the less.
However, the real cost lies in the risk to those involved...
No, it doesn't. Their loss is society's gain.
