Drupal sci-fi sex scandal deepens: Now devs spank Dries over Gor bloke's banishment

No sex outside marriage?

I think this is more a society's formalization of a common feature of many higher animals; the attempt by a dominant male to prevent access to his female(s) to ensure the propagation of his genes.

Often found in birds, I believe.

Not as far as I know directly linked to a belief in god(s) but more linked to "organised religion" which majors on organisational power and tends to conveniently forget the basic tenets of the religion they are supposed to espouse.

Most major religions seem to start out being about being nice to each other plus some very sensible advice about hygienic living. Then the organisation starts adding a few little rules just to "clarify" what the founder really meant.

So please don't confuse religion and "organised religion".

Startup remotely 'bricks' grumpy bloke's IoT car garage door – then hits reverse gear

I totally get the abuse, but

A dumb mechanism linked to a central intelligent server is a very strong system design (in technical terms).

All the mechanism has to do is connect securely to the central server and do as it is told. No issues about maintaining the software on the device. No issues about supporting older hardware as the intelligence is in the central server.

Nearly all the software will be mainstream HTML5 based and easily supported.

Just two small problems; the initial secure connection and the reliance on a third party to maintain the server.

So a strong technical design with a commercial flaw.

Fake news

Is in the eye of the beholder.

Where do you go with climate change, creationism just to mention two obvious candidates?

Removing fake news is censorship. Once this is accepted then the power lies with those who define fake.

Microsoft wants screaming Windows fans, not just users

Angel

Come on guys think positive

There are the first signs that Microsoft are beginning to listen to users.

Forced unscheduled updates are being eased up on.

Who knows, in time you may even be able to limit the telemetry.

If you want to influence Microsoft you probably have a better chance joining the insider programme than ranting here.

Disclaimer: nothing more recent than W8.1 and no, I haven't joined the insider programme.

Private?

I assume the commentards here are active users of docs.com and speak from experience?

Because the alternative is that private is the default but it was just too much trouble to set up the closed group so everything was set to public by the user.

My personal beer

As others have suggested the main requirement is that nobody else likes it so it is mine all mine.

Although having paid all that money I would feel obliged to drink it all (I hate waste) there would come a point where I would be bleating thinking "Thank $Deity only another 10 pallet loads to go (hic).

Bloke whose drone was blasted out of sky by angry dad loses another court battle for compo

Black Helicopters

Weirdly different approach to the law

In the USA people think it is O.K. to fly drones over other peoples houses.

Others (quite reasonably IMHO) feel that they have the right to shoot down a drone apparently flying over your property with intent to spy. Of course, shotgun.

Owners of drones feel that it is quite reasonable to go round mob handed to sort out the S.O.B.

Carrying a Glock suddenly seems to be a normal every day precaution any sensible person would take. After all lethal force seems to be an acceptable part of normal society.

Cue extensive and expensive legal battle.

In the UK it is illegal to fly drones over other people's property.
