Re: Bloody big state Tories
At least at the end they say she wasn't a real person but is a pity they felt they had to do that when everything else is pretty accurate.

Not really, you could be someone with a green card or visa and live/work in that area so engagement with local auhorities would still be seen as able to engage with them. Realistically public forum is just that, the public, so you don't really even need to live in that area etc either.
The easy answer is to not use social media certain ways. Maybe don't allow comments, have all questions through a different webpage where they can define their T&C's themselves? Or do what others do, if it's swearing or abusive or libelous you can still remove their posts, just not ban them.
Every time you do one of these quizzes or add an app for something you accept the terms. And yes it still also includes a list of your friends. If you don't want to share that information then you have the choice of not accepting the terms. It really is as simple as that.
And yes if we have stupid bloody friends that do that then we need to look at our friends rather than Facebook. I didn't use the Analytica app but a friend did so shared some info. But what info and what impact did it have? I'm British so didn't get to vote in the US Election and my Brexit decision was not changed by anything either. Yes bad that people have my data but what actual impact did it have?
The reason Peston and other newspaper journalists are 'at the top of the pile' are they are the ones with the widest reach and have written about many people!
I'm not going to get something from Google saying we are removing things from your Blog as not that many people outside my group look at it! Peston et al should see it as a sign of their influence and nothing else.
Noone wants Google to take things down, and yes this is an overegging of the situation but it shows how stupid it is when a private business has to judge such things. It should be up to a proper legal system to remove things if they indeed have to be.
The legend is not lots of cartridges, it's MILLIONS.
Lots of cartridges and equipment used to make them were thrown away around that time as the factories were being changed, that is not denied. It's the scale that is the issue. Finding a few isn't the same thing.
Would be happy to see them find millions though, will make for a good tv programme.
The basic answer is these people have the contacts and do the work to know people who will donate massive amounts of money in terms of time, exposure, cash and resources.
If you went in as the Oxfam CEO for free you have saved them £150,000. But can you get an event together than can raise £3 million for Oxfam?
It sounds mentally high, but there are reasons behind it.
I got my Hotmail account in 1997 when I left university as it was the only way to have an email address back then as we didn't have online access at home (soon changed that though).
I've kept it as my main contact email for many reasons, had different work ones, even ones for websites I ran but have kept mine all this time as basically, it works!
Well your original would have the EXIF data and you could prove creation of photo, maybe even other versions taken at the same time. Not to mention you could bring the kids out as evidence.
More likely a company selling something in Korea uses the photo and you never know about it until a friend on holiday sees it.
Considering how easy it is to find where images came from via even Google Images and Tineye a lot of likely image theft will very easily prove it's not a diligent search. It's fighting that point that will be the issue.
People cheating in photography competitions, big fashion houses stealing designs etc have all been proven using basic searching that a child could do. A lot of what is on tumblr for example can often be tracked down very easily with only a small amount of effort. It's making sure that people not doing that don't get away with it.
And as a friend said if someone is stealing something off DeviantArt then it's very easy to prove it's yours
It's not hidden, you know what you are doing when you buy it, the bit I find odd is the whole only buying one, no resale through THEM as there would surely be a market for that at some point. Some people will want to buy more than one, some people will break them etc so I'm guessing there has to be a returns thing somewhere.
A lot of what we 'own' we don't own these days, but unless you want to do anything out of the norm with it noone really cares. You get the use which is why you spend your money in the first place.
Noone is forcing you to buy any product.
This story misses out the basic point that the majority of people who vote, whoever they vote for, are not members of a party.
You don't have to be to vote for someone, you on;y sign up to be a member if you are really interested and want to help more, maybe get involved in doing more than voting.
But member numbers ultimately mean nothing.
From what I saw on the times I was at the Olympics most of the seats not filled weren't the businesses (they gave most to their customers as it was an amazing publicity thing) but the OBS and media partners. And of course noone wanted to see anything but the biggest teams and events.
Not to mention that with a lot of the foreign visitors at games once their team had played they buggered off!
I was at a double women's basketball game and after Australia had played several hundred people just left.
It's not as simple as some people think it is.
This means nothing. Using the system isn't the problem, it's what the company did that is illegal.
Even if individual users were breaking the law using Megaupload that is NOT the same as the Dept of Justice etc using it. That they are/were allowed to use such systems on government systems is a more interesting issue. Normally that sort of thing is massively clamped down on and blocked, just like torrenting or any p2p system.
as we all know this is a legal requirement on the case of the networks, and I can see why many elements of the iphone app's and services need the information, not least for the ability to use the phone and wifi.
I can see how legacy information might be useful so it is left on the phone (although more likely that it takes up so little space it doesn't matter).
For me it's more the matter that it is available on the pc you sych to.
And also the fact that the app to look at it is Mac only! I want to see where I've been!
I can't see how these people are going to be able to walk in and get more than one. If they are reserved then you are only supposed to be able to get one per person. I guess there will be some people that have other peoples numbers and are collecting them, but is that actually allowed? Not from what I've heard, but who knows?
The funny thing is if they are reserved they can go in at anytime and pick theirs up. If they've not then they'll be out of luck as I can't imagine there will be any spares for sale!
If I wanted to stand in front of your house and take pictures of your children I could do it and I wouldn't be blurring faces.
It would not be illegal, so get over yourself.
This is a great thing. The problems with the system are where idiots have moaned about something and got sections removed. I can't even see my own house now because of some idiot complaining about their house being visible.
What they need to do now is redo some areas that have been messed up and do more deals like they have with the National Trust to use the trikes to do roads/paths where cars can't go.
If you want to complain about anything, look at the birds eye view on Bing Maps. That really will give you more information about your houses, ways in and out etc. All Google Streetview is doing is showing what I could see if I walked down your street. Or would you want to stop me doing that as well?
I am very surprised that we've not seen big adverts for this though.
