For the life of me, I don't understand why all companies don't encrypt their databases, all the information, not just certain parts of it like credit card information.

I only have one question: How good was the encryption used for credit card information? Just because something is encrypted, does not mean it's encrypted well. I never elected to have them remember my credit card information so I hope those accounts don't have to worry about credit card information being compromised.

All I can say is that PETA goes too far. However, there are ways to limit the suffering of animals and I would consider it ethical to do so.

With comments like that from PETA, they really give the impression of being zealots and caring more about non human animals than humans.

Trail mix with stimulants and imaginary 'performance enhancers' that cost a fortune and do absolutely nothing, wrapped in a condescending, insulting marketing scheme.

Just what I'm looking to spend my money on.
Right on Blackhawk. I can sum up what they claim in one word: pseudoscience. The only active ingredient is caffeine.

Firefox takes advantage of some 3d acceleration features of grahics cards to render webagpage. Look into that and shut it down to see what happens.

The very idea of using same sex sexual orientation (that the best evidence shows is not a choice anymore than heterosexuality is a choice) as an insult is incorrect and therefore willfully ignorant.

Here is some hate speech for you.

The fact that peoples perverted or mentally deranged sexual state needs to be identified by them literally in front of every single thing they do is a sign in itself of the truth im stating.

whats next want to share with everyone that you are a "gay" coffee drinker? bottom line is you are sexually attracted to the same sex wich is ABNORMAL! and not something you should be proud of, ok with, or trumpet as loud as you can associating it with literally everything you do.

it is an OBVIOUS mental disorder plain and simple and its time all of society recognized that and dealt with it accordingly.

Homosexuality is found in over 400 different animal species. Homo-phobia is only found in one. Which one would you consider "natural"?
Hellbinder just got owned with the facts. But Hellbinder would never let the facts get in the way of his ignorant opinion.

IT also takes no courage to express disdain for the ourage againt bigotry. At least not anonymously on the internet. We can go on like that that infinitely.

I'm not outraged. It's typical and in many settings socially accpetable to use gay slurs. This incident is just a piece of the larger problem. The point is that Blizzard gave a guy a big stage to voice his gay slurs. Slurs that I hardly think they woudld embrace publicly.

So now you're just an anonymous complainer?

How about at least taking an anonymous stand?


Again, the pot is calling the kettle black. I did take a stand. But I will elaborate. I find biggotry generally disgusting, whether it's of the form of slurs based on sexual identity, gender, ethnicity or actions.

Blizzard is a huge studio with tons of fans. It does not behoove them to be associated with biggotry of any type.

You can say whatever you like, just don't expect people to keep silent when biggots say what they like. Also on a website, the website operator can remove anything he/she likes, for whatever reason period. I'm shocked that Blue does not want to be associated with biggotry. *scarcasm*

Gay biggotry is disgusting to me. All biggotry is disgusting to me. It takes no courage to be biggoted against a group with a particular characteristic.


It also takes no courage to express outrage against bigotry. At least not anonymously on the internet.

I'm not outraged. It's typical and in many settings socially accpetable to use gay slurs. This incident is just a symptom of the larger problem of prejudice and biggotry. Instead of anti gay slurs, substitute gender slurs or ethnic slurs. Then there would be even more outrage. The point is that Blizzard gave a guy a big stage to voice his gay slurs. Slurs that I hardly think they would embrace publicly.

Are you seriously calling an encyclopedia a source?

Also: http://www.michigandaily.com/node/62329/talk

[...]
Even Wikipedia's founder Jimmy Wales agrees that the online encyclopedia is not a citable source. He said in a 2005 interview with Business Week that "people shouldn't be citing encyclopedias in the first place."
[...]
I cited where I got my information. That's why it's a source. It may not be the best or even a good source or an authority but it is a source of my information.

I wish to point out that Eskimos don't have more words for snow than we do in English:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eskimo_words_for_snow

This is a common misconception.
