I read the Terms of Service for Foxwordy, including the following prohibitions:

Build a competitive service or copy any ideas, features, functions, interface or graphics of the Service;
 or
Access the Service or take, post, publicly share or display any screenshots or videos of the Service or any part of the Service on or for purposes of any personal or business blog, article, advertisement, discussion forum, or online profile,

Foxwordy clearly wants to live in its own little bubble, unphased by critical thinking, competition, or criticism.

Nice work if you can get it +Robert Ambrogi

      Is Cloud an Offshore safe heaven for data?
Microsoft and the US government are facing off in the second circuit court of appeals over the tech giant’s continuing refusal to hand over emails related to a narcotics case from a Hotmail account hosted in Ireland in 2013.
Microsoft argues that its data should be protected by the laws of the land where its servers are located – a decision that will have major ramifications for cloud computing no matter which way it goes.
The case has made for strange bedfellows: Apple filed an amicus brief with Microsoft, as did the Electronic Frontier Foundation and Verizon, NPR and Fox News, the Irish government, the ACLU, eBay, and the Guardian.

A man sentenced to life in prison without parole on a marijuana-related charge walked out of a Missouri prison a free man on Tuesday, after spending two decades behind bars, and after many years of lobbying from family, lawmakers and advocates for the legalization of marijuana, who argued that the sentence was too stiff.
Jeff Mizanskey's release followed years of lobbying from lawmakers and advocates marijuana legalization, who argued that the sentence was too stiff.

Apparently the public outcry against the American penal - drug- industry which provides full-time jobs to tens of thousands of police officers, sheriffs, marshalls, judges, prosecutors, defense lawyers, drug testing labs, jailers, probation counselors and the industries supporting these, private prisons, food suppliers, has finally reached little old Missouri. I wonder if retraining of these folks is planned as decriminalization of Marijuana is our future.

Recent post from +Pirated Thoughts re: the inability to #copyright  a chicken sandwich. 
As a grand jury can indict a ham sandwich, we're trying to come up with a new saying using the "chicken sandwich." 
The First Circuit Court ruled that a former employee of Church's Chicken was unable to assert copyright protection in a chicken sandwich that he created.

It is no wonder that debt collection is always cast in a negative light. Not only are there debt collectors out there who illegally harass and torment debtors to the point of frustration and fear, but there are also countless horror stories about debt scavengers relentlessly trying to collect on zombie debts that haunt debtors. The motivating principle behind these types of debts and debt collection practices is to intimidate debtors into paying debts when there may be no legal obligation to do so.

Legal work will not escape unscathed. Innovation might be slow to reach legal departments, solo practices, and law firms. But even still, technology is making legal services leaner and more efficient. New labor models will impact legal labor as well.

Foxwordy wants to prohibit copying any "ideas".  There would be no Silicon Valley if people here didn't copy ideas and try to make them better.  Yet the founder says she's from SV.

This is utter fantasy.

Poor lost soul. A Judge sentences 4,000 children to prison as part of his million dollar kickback from the builder of the prison who would house these kids. 28 year sentence for the 61 year old disgraced jurist. Supreme Court tosses the 4,000 convictions.
Mark Ciavarella Jr. was convicted of taking bribes from developers of juvenile detention centers. The case, known as "kids for cash" led to the tossing of 4,000 convictions issued by Ciavarella.

It is right to question the judicial system that did not have safe guards to protect itself from such horrendous abuse. However, even it took a long time it corrected itself. In fact, all the people free by Innocence Project and there are hundreds of them also demonstrate exactly the same three problems -- 1. the system can be abused and manipulated by insiders; 2. it takes a long time often dozens of years to correct injustice done to innocent people; 3. very often people who abused system get away unpunished. Yet, the people who have power and could change these injustices do not want to do anything saying that system works because at the end injustices were corrected. It is very perverse logic and no doubt that if they would have such experience with justice system they would sing a different tune!

This case shows how pervasive government corruption is.  In 1999 two politicians, Langford and Marsh were terminated from their positions.  They filed suit against Atlantic City.  Langford eventually became mayor of Atlantic City.  One of the first things he did after becoming mayor, was to instruct the City Solicitor to settle the suit that he and Marsh, who had by that time had become a councilman, had filed.  The City Solicitor settled the suit for $850,000.  City Council approved the settlement.  The State found out about the settlement and appealed.  The NJ Supreme Court voided the settlement on the grounds that it was "infected with conflicts of interest and void as a matter of law."
    A new mayor (Bob Levy) was elected.  He appointed a new solicitor and told her to collect the $850,000 from Marsh and Langford.  Both Langford and Marsh claimed they had spent the money and had no assets from which the money could be collected.  The solicitor scheduled depositions in an attempt to find out where the money had gone.  In the meantime Councilman Tim Mancuso asked the solicitor to approve $600,000 fees to the city tax attorney, who was a close friend of his.  The solicitor told Mancuso that paying the tax attorney would violate both the state "Pay to Play Law" and state contract laws requiring such contracts to be awarded after public bidding.  
   Bob Levy resigned as mayor and Marsh was appointed mayor. Marsh went to City Council and spoke about firing the solicitor.  The minutes of that meeting were "lost".  Marsh moved to stay collection of the money that he owed the City.   On the day of the hearing on Marsh's motion to stay collection, he fired the solicitor.  With the solicitor gone the city paid the tax attorney $600,000.
     The solicitor sued the City, Marsh and Mancuso.   She was awarded $1.2 million in damages plus her attorneys fees.  Her suit against Mancuso will go to trial this year.
         There is a discouraging aspect to this case. The taxpayers are footing the bill to the tune of over $2 million for this lawsuit. The named defendants, who were certainly not working on behalf of the city, but merely trying to unjustly enrich themselves, will not pay one penny for their actions.  
   In cases like this the City should refuse to indemnify the defendants.  The defendants should not be allowed to profit from their illegal acts.
     
      
ATLANTIC CITY — An appellate panel upheld a $1.2 million civil judgment to a former city solicitor who claimed she was fired for retaliation by members of City Council.

“For the first time ever, one billion people used Facebook in a single day. On Monday, 1 in 7 people on Earth used Facebook to connect with their friends and family,” wrote Zuckerberg in a post on his personal profile.
“When we talk about our financials, we use average numbers, but this is different. This was the first time we reached this milestone, and it’s just the beginning of connecting the whole world.”
_“A more open and connected world is a better world. It brings stronger relationships with those you love, a stronger economy with more opportunities, and a stronger society that reflects all of our values,” _wrote Zuckerberg.
The last one is the best example of public BS --- we have one of the biggest humanitarian disaster in the Middle East with ongoing war and arm conflicts in Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Yemen, Sudan, etc... Refugees stream from war ravaged countries and poor African countries on a growing scale, growing  world economic with epicenter in China and Zuckerberg somehow sees improvement thank to the Facebook connections. I have only one question -- how deep is his head up his ass?

For the first time, Facebook recorded more than a billion active users in a day: Monday saw about 15% of the world's population log in to watch cat videos, argue about politics, stalk ex-lovers, and publicly complain about bad service...

+william reed​ you say you don't propose using social media yet here you are contributing to what you say is (dumbing down of society) fyi societal problems and idioms always existed social media just gives them a platform. One has a choice with whom they interact which then becomes a learning journey for some!

This is a worst type of conspiracy, entrapment, manipulating court and despicable and unethical legal behavior in history of sleazy lawyers. Frankly, the penalty for these scumbags is too low.
