"carry the death penalty in China, and other sentences are more severe"
I wonder what you would consider "more severe"?

Fuck off with your tl:dr, you've obviously come to the wrong place, Reg readers are not put off by an article with more than 140 chars.
PS Is "citation needed" the end of research as we know it?
PPS I could find out myself, but it's much easier to append "Citation needed" & let some other fucker do it for me :-)
Umm, bet you had ITC lessons at sKool & passed.
I'm over 50, I did A level CS (late 70's) the only times, since then, that I've ever seen Powerpoint used (in anger?) is by clueless sales droids (AKA road twats ^H^H^H^H^H warriors [heh])
My colleague, Alan, who is a "proper" civil engineering Project Manager, you know >£250M projects & multi year time lines, would rather you spit in his ear than use Powerpoint or, FFS, Microsoft Project :-) I s'pose project managing a web page is entirely Powerpoint land...
PS To the "road warrior" last week that said, essentially, that "Because I earn a multiple of your salary I'm better" go shaft yourself you smug, useless, parasitic twat!
OK I'm off, beer o'clock
Read your "ICT" history on wikipedia then?
Billy was definitely unwashed, whiney, "evangelistic" & shrill (at least he was in '85) but he had a "vision", which sort of makes him a "visionary".
We may not like that "vision", nor where it took him/Microsoft, but you can't airbrush him out.
PS: Still use WP5.1
There's really no need mush, the strength of your argument should carry it, SHOUTING is for lesser minds.
Heh, reminds me of a "shit-for-brains" director I worked for back in the day, used to title his (always very important) memos using the following:
Title: Centre, embolden, uppercase, underline.
Armstrong, where are you now?
Use of the word "Simples" indicates that you, Sir, are a Prawnus Maximus..
I've had a gmail account since 'before' you needed an invite. I read, and fully understood, the terms & conditions at the time, I will carry on using it. No problem to solve.
My grasp of logic is not sufficient to allow me to understand your mindset: It's provided free, there's no "hidden" T&C's, it's actually a great service ~for free~ and all you have to put up with are a few adverts, assuming you use the web client. (tip: use IMAP)
Anyone with a touch of sense that is. Merkins OTOH, understand "Shareholder value" & other utter short-termism bollocks and the like; drive a good, profitable, sensible company into the ground; but give a good dividend. Yup that's OK & that's "business".
Sorry it's utter shite & the bane of the western business world.
I've been reading (what became) El Reg since Mike & John's second CIX newsletter. Post new-fangled-interweb El Reg has been a permanently open tab in my browser (Opera - natch) since the late C20th & a daily/hourly good read. Having said all that; it was the advent of comments (moderated by the delightful dearly departed) that took El Reg to a new level.
Some of your responses^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H cutdowns were sublime:-)
Good luck in future endeavours.
Got stuffed! x x ©
"Obligatory <insert shite here>" ~ We really don't care! Oh! and please don't include a link, what's funny to you is just meh! to the rest of us.
"Playmobile or it didn't happen!" ~ Really?, no! You are not funny. Not. Funny. Any. More. Go. Away.
"Citation required" ~ This is not wikipedia, it's El Reg. now fuck off back & concentrate on deleting stuff you know fuck all about.
"I call <whatever>" ~ We're not playing poker here, if you want to call a bet, do so, elsewhere! Don't use this shite phrase for "disagree", if you disagree please articulate your disagreement, then we can all laugh at your stupidity/not laugh at your inciteful comment, rather than just ignoring the post completely.
Nuff said, my next lecture will be at the Wigmore Hall, natch :-)
Where's the sodding Grenade icon gone now?
