Somehow I never manage to remember this, so a reminder to myself and everyone else: never read the comments on a news article or blog.

Repeat: Never. Read. The. Comments.

Opposing civil liberties is treason. Pass it on.

The First Amendment is a casualty in the War on Copyright Infringement.

An absolutely ridiculous story on how the US Government seizes the domain and equipment of a popular blog, realizes it (and the RIAA reps who sent them) made a mistake, but still doesn't return the illegally seized property to the owners of the blog until A YEAR LATER.

During that 12 months nobody got arrested, or even formally charged for any illegal behavior, so the US Government essentially seized private property of a business that was breaking absolutely no law whatsoever.

But, hey, we gotta protect those copyrights, eh? By any means necessary.

I'm willing to bet you've never actually seen a quick brown fox jumping over a lazy dog. UNTIL NOW. :)

All nationalists have the power of not seeing resemblances between similar sets of facts. A British Tory will defend self-determination in Europe and oppose it in India with no feeling of inconsistency. Actions are held to be good or bad, not on their own merits, but according to who does them, and there is almost no kind of outrage — torture, the use of hostages, forced labour, mass deportations, imprisonment without trial, forgery, assassination, the bombing of civilians — which does not change its moral colour when it is committed by ‘our’ side.

This is pretty great.

I think it's kind of awesome that +Tom Anderson is actually real and active on G+, and is using his (in)famous "Tom" icon from MySpace.

Fiddling with my circles. If you get new "I added you!" notifications, I apologize for the spam.
