Health pros: Alcohol is EVIL – raise its price, ban its ads

What a load of utter hyperbolic shite. Alcohol in moderation does no harm whatsoever and in many cases is beneficial. That's established. Why are these clowns coming along and trying to frame it as the likely cause of the apocalypse? It does damage to families, does it? Alcoholism causes all the things they're scaremongering about and that's a different issue altogether. Unless they're trying to imply that raising the price and halt advertising is the cure for alcoholism? Which would be on an even keel with the laughable statement they're already trying to make.

Re: Strange

That's not always been the case. About ten years ago, a company I was working for were holding an education seminar and we'd bought about 150 original CRT iMacs. We had to have a team of people opening the boxes, switching them on and going through that setup, which included entering full registration details. So, you've not always been able to skip that.

Re: Dyslexic analysis disorder

Do you see the word 'suspect' in your statement, followed up at the rear by lack of evidence?

Re: People have opinions, it's not a crime.

Racist remarks are not opinion, they're an offence. You shouldn't be allowed to get away with it online any more than your should in public.

Re: Odd.....

UK Companies MUST allow the option? Surely you're having a laugh? For one thing, not all companies do it and one quick look around would show you that and for another, who's going to punish them? Are you going to go around suing them like some sort of low-rent, IT Batman?

You a month's free service because there was an outage lasting less than 24 hours? Is your life so empty that couldn't amuse yourself without Netflix for a few hours?

Thanks for bringing this to light. I've already donated once and I won't be doing it again.

Sex offender wins case against Facebook vigilantism

Re: People who

Well, that's clearly not true. A paedophile is someone who has a sexual fetish for children or young adults and a child abuser is one who sexually abuses a child. They're not necessarily the same thing.

Apple manufacturers: ARRGH, pesky iThings are impossible to make

FAIL

Difficult to manufacture with a low yield. That's expensive and congratulations Apple customers, you're footing the bill. You think that shiny new device is the most expensive because it's the best, do you?

Maybe if you took the time to watch the full video, you'd understand. I'd like to see you defend his other points.

I agree. This is further proof that lower the price of something doesn't stop people pirating it. At least we know that 13 losers, and counting, on here have pirated it.
