    Should trolling be illegal?

    As to when trolling should become illegal, IMO it would have to be based on when the trolling segues into active, provable harm. And MAN is that a dangerous area to begin treading.

    Should trolling be illegal?

    More an included crime. You need the same info either way. Doxxing just publishes the info. Swatting uses it to bring the cops in shooting, but people have been swatted without being doxxed when the person doing the swatting was also the person who found the address.

    Is Socialism theft?

    Oligarchies rarely advertise themselves as such.

    Should trolling be illegal?

    Basically: Doxxing Hey internet! Here's Jon's address, phone number, employer, children's names and school, and what he drives. Have fun! Swatting "9-1-1, please state your emergency" "Jon is at <your home address> and he's going nuts! He's already killed two people and is screaming he's...

    Should trolling be illegal?

    I don't see it as such. It's much more 'here's their info; I really hope no one does anything bad with it' vs swatting being a straight-up attempt to get cops to kill the person. Basically, doxxing is passive and takes a long time to do anything, while swatting is active and immediate...

    Is Socialism theft?

    Nope, I studied Computer Science, Philosophy, and Female Anatomy in college, and not always in that order. I do, however, read CONSTANTLY, and since 2000 or so I've read a ton of political theory. China is a strange bird. It calls itself a Communist nation (which isn't QUITE the same as...

    Should trolling be illegal?

    Here's a thread for you, Jon: "If there is no free will, then are prisons and punishment wrong?"

    Should trolling be illegal?

    IMO, trolling should only be illegal if it involves other crimes. Deliberately pissing someone off because you found a hot button you can push is rude and asinine, but it is also free speech. However, taken to extremes, you wind up with things like SWATTING, which absolutely 100% should be...

    Is Socialism theft?

    LOL It probably has more to do with my support of social programs. Anyway, we're way off-topic. In regards to the topic of whether or not socialism is theft, it is not and cannot be theft, as it is either a political or economic theory. Theft would be a specific implementation, and...

    Is Socialism theft?

    I couldn't begin to tell you, but it happened. Once here, a couple times elsewhere.

    Is Socialism theft?

    Amusingly, over at Conservapedia, when they got to this part in their Bible rewrite, they suggested replacing 'right' with 'Conservative' and 'left' with 'Liberal'.

    Is Socialism theft?

    Matthew 25: 31-46 The Sheep and the Goats 31 “When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit on his glorious throne. 32 All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate the people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the...

    Is Socialism theft?

    And hell, just look at that video you linked: saying socialism is evil is just the flipside of saying capitalism is evil. Both are simplistic arguments based on a profound lack of understanding of complex and nuanced subjects. It would make just as much sense to say education is evil or that...

    Is Socialism theft?

    Meh, to be quite honest, I'm neither capitalist nor socialist. Both have their positives, and both can result in hell on Earth when distorted by greed and the pursuit of power. Neither one is either inherently good or inherently evil. I personally support a capitalist economy with laws in...

    Is Socialism theft?

    Jon, by that logic, that means that taxes are also theft. That's actually a central tenet of both Anarchism and some branches of Libertarianism (mainly that following the writings of Ayn Rand).

    Is Socialism theft?

    With how unremittingly hostile the forum has become to non-conservatives, I normally CBA to reply to political posts here any longer, but I felt the extra information I could add was too important to not post it.

    Is Socialism theft?

    Also, don't forget that there are two major kinds of socialism: economic socialism and governmental socialism. Economic is the idea that property and the means of production should belong to the workers, and that the proceeds of said production should be split by all. There are different...

    Replacement for Access

    And for the record, my employer (more specifically, my director) last year instructed us to move our applications from Access to C#. We already had the SQL Server databases going. We're STILL doing the conversions, because about half of the 14 Access apps we supported were EXTREMELY complex...

    Replacement for Access

    Well, they could always set up SQL Server or Oracle systems, hire a DBA to run them, hire at least one full-time application devloper (cheaper than the DBA, normally, but not all THAT much cheaper), and then spend the necessary time required to convert the applications from Access to the non-VBA...

    Welcome to our new home!

    Well, we knew something like this was going to happen, but it's kind of a bummer to see the vast majority of the 'thanks' not get transferred over to 'likes' and reaction score. Still, I think I like the new format. Takes some getting used to, but the improvement in speed is really nice.
