So, what you are saying is we were imagining it when ISPs throttled traffic from specific applications, or specific sites? That by forcing certain content providers pay extra money the ISPs are supporting the base line consumers?

Yes, in a perfect world, normal capitalistic forces would drive ISPs to be more responsible towards the consumers. However, you can't have the competition factors which might drive ISPs to be consumer focused when in a vast majority of locations there is a monopoly for broadband delivery. This becomes especially problematic when the ISPs and the content providers are owned by the same people.


Don't feed the Alex Joneses.

The suit claims that Trump's Twitter feed is a public forum and an official voice of the president. Excluding people from reading or replying to his tweets—especially because they tweeted critical comments—amounts to a First Amendment breach, according to the lawsuit.
Private property, the constitution does not apply. Because they are publicly traded does not make them a public institution or service.

This is true for people that aren't the POTUS. But the rules are different for him. No one is claiming Twitter is a public institution or service, they're claiming the account of the President is.

Nice for you to stop posting negativity, anti-SC, and REMOVED posts long enough to tell us that we should worship a president, because that's a good thing.

It's hard to tell because not everyone follows their medication schedule, but I think he was being sarcastic. I don't think anyone on either side tells people to worship their guy. Usually you make your candidate out to be a reasonable person trying to do the right thing and the opposition to be insane animals.

It's hard to tell because it's the exact rhetoric you see in serious comments sections.

It's the problem with reading comments sections...

Yes because Democrats love to cheat and hide it then call everyone else a cheater.

That's the truth.

If the facts were on the table the illegal votes for Obama and Clinton would be far higher than anyone would believe. In fact a recent study showed that as many as 6 million illegal votes were cast for Obama in 2008.

That number is probably between 5-10 million for Clinton in 2016. If you are a democrat leftist Saul Alinskyite radical you clearly want that covered up forever.

OMG! Millions of illegal votes cast! Let's hit the Googs and see what the exact number is.

one study found just 31 credible claims of fraud amid more than a 1 billion ballots cast since 2000

But wait! You can't trust the lamestream media! It must be true because it feels true in my gut!

Moran.

Did you mean Moron?

Get a brain, moran!

I... I'm not convinced you know what a "fact" is. I am convinced you believe too much Alex Jones, though.

It's wonderful that you mention "the truth" then cite nothing.

Since the diesel scandal hit American car companies too, I wonder if any American auto execs will be indicted.

Oh, wait, what am I saying. Corporations are people, but are never held responsible in the USA.

It's really hard, though, right? Let's take this as an example. It's something the CEO reasonably wouldn't have known about, so it's very hard to hold him responsible. If you hold the CEO criminally responsible for the actions of his employees, first off, where does it stop? If a UPS driver intentionally runs over a pedestrian, is the CEO of UPS criminally responsible? Second off, regardless of where it stops, we'd have to compensate CEOs far, far more. The possibility of jail for something an idiot employee you've likely never been in the same room as, or had contact with, sending you to jail is something people would want much more money to risk. We already overpay most CEOs, too, so...

If not holding the CEO responsible, you'd have to figure out who is. Again, in this case, the actual work was probably done by some code drones who weren't fully aware of what they were working on. Hard to hold them responsible when they were doing what they were told to and, again, may have had a reasonable excuse to not be aware that what they were doing would result in fraud. You could keep going above them to see where the buck stops, but that requires thousands upon thousands of man-hours of scouring memos and emails. This happens in civil lawsuits, because one side is willing to pay hundreds of thousands, if not into the millions, for that kind of discovery. Hard to do that on taxpayer dollars.

That someone is indicted is somewhat amazing, and probably comes from them lying to the government rather than simply leading to the death of citizens. We'll see what happens.

RIP. They added way more quest content at launch at beyond, but the continuous overhauls and eventual removal of resource gathering killed it. I had way more fun with this game in beta when you could thump anywhere, finding little nooks and crannies that were rich in minerals but still easy to defend, or causing some mayhem near bases that other people would join in on...

That ex-CEO has been crowdfunding and starting production on a spiritual successor called Em-8ER, if anyone's interested. I'm not getting my hopes up for it, but the intent is basically to make the game he wanted Firefall to be. They're doing a loyalty rewards thing, too, where you can get some stuff just for being a player of Firefall or they'll match you dollar-for-dollar if you were a founder. That process requires putting a verification link in your Firefall forums account profile, so anyone that wants to better get on that asap in case that site disappears soon: https://emberbot.jadex.eu/founders/

He seems far more interested in fighting on Twitter than making a game.

My friends refused to play this DM against me. Partially because, by the time it came out, they had moved on beyond Build engine FPS games.

But mostly because they thought I was a dick in games that rewarded dickery, and a game with sticky bombs and nukes was absolutely a game designed to be a dick.

How can anyone mention science and creationism in the same sentence without a "has no basis in?"

But the Kentucky museum with men taming dinosaurs is pretty spectacularly funny.

Race realists are the worst.

I had to look up that term. Not sure what you're saying. It sounds strangely hippie to me. Do you deny there's difference races among humans?

Edit: Tried to work with your comment. Couldn't.


Inherently? No. But taught in society? Yes.

A race realist is someone who would claim that, since the black community is more violent, cops are right to be more cautious around black people and therefore it's understandable that a higher percentage of black people get shot while unarmed.

But that's still racism, because it still says it's OK to judge people based on the color they were born.

Ok, now you're distracting from authority killing black people to "they kill more of themselves!" and "they need to clean the community!"


Those are different issues and bringing them up is worthless. And BLM has already made a difference in how the dialogue is handled in this country. It's already done a lot to shine a light on a problem.

Man, then you go into whining about how black people can discuss race and you can't. I'm out here. You're not based in reality, instead on fear-mongering. I'd question if you've ever spent much time with African Americans or in their communities. It doesn't seem like it. It seems like you just think what you see on the news is all there is, which is funny, because you complain about people doing the same to the police...

Which is why Amazon shouldn't let 3Ps in Prime Day. They're the ones that ruined it. In general, most complaints people have about Amazon at any time are due to 3Ps. Amazon is guaranteed to be the lowest price on the internet, but 3Ps almost never are. Hell, they're often 10x more. People don't get the marketplace, so they think Amazon is now a ripoff. Not to mention all the grey market and old product some categories are loaded with.

More white people are shot than black, true.

But there's about 5.5x more white people than black. I just don't get how you keep mentioning race then saying it isn't a factor...

But I think we can all agree that something pretty basic is wrong and needs fixing when a black man is pulled over 49 times in a decade of driving, as Mr. Castile was. It's not for nothing that "driving while black" is a common phrase. I'm really curious how many times people on this thread have been pulled over by police. In 30 years, I think it's about six times for me, and I used to do some crazy shit when I was younger.


A speeding ticket when I was 23, with the cop pointing out that he should have been towing my car away and arresting me based on how high he clocked me (only like 85, but in a 65.)

A speeding ticket when I was 30.

Pulled over for having expired plates when I was 31, then again a week later when the DMV screwed up and didn't properly update them.

That's it. Well, unless you count the time I brought a girlfriend home from college and, looking for a spot to make out, parked behind the middle school, not realizing the neighbors there called the cops for any car there after dark.

News Comments > LawBreakers Open Beta
3. Re: LawBreakers Open Beta Jun 30, 2017, 18:56 Beamer
 
Just downloaded it and did a match. I've been doing a ton of CSGO, so that's my reference:

* I skipped the tutorial and jumped right in. This game is a bit more complicated, with lots of class specific abilities. I really kind of ignored them

* You move slowly. Way more slowly than I expected. Makes CSGO feel fast. This doesn't match what I expected, so I think maybe either I don't know what I'm doing, or it's the game type I played

* The match I did was something called Blitzball. The ball is voiced by Justin Roiland and sounds exactly like Morty

* I had no clue what I was doing, went 11-16, and scored a goal. Match score was an A, and I leveled up

* The graphics are detailed but ugly. I don't know if it's the palette or what, but it's ugly

* It's chaos, but the type of chaos where you can chase someone. CSGO is the type where, if you see someone, one of you dies

* Enemies have a colored outline so you can identify them. I would call this a bit of an art design fail. Other games don't need this, because you can tell who is who from sight. This game requires an outline

* Seriously, it's chaos with kind of ugly graphics, so it took me the better part of the match to realize what was going on (weirdly, I may have had a goal before a kill.) Once I figured it out, killing was satisfying

Still think I may stick with CSGO for now. But I'll give this the 5 matches for the sticker to see if I like things more than Blurnsball.
