    Apparently the Westboro Baptist Church plans to hold one of its jerkwad demonstrations at the funerals of the Sandy Hook victims (is there anyone's death they WON'T show up for?). Unfortunately for them, their announcement got Anonymous' attention.

    I think Anonymous is a lot like Batman. Their version of justice isn't always in line with the law, but in a world so far gone, it's the only kind that's still true justice. Anonymous is the hero this world needs.

    You know it's just a matter of time before someone shoots them, right? The WBC that is. Really looking forward to that myself.

    In response, the hacker group Anonymous posted personal information of church members online, including phone numbers, home and email addresses.

    The complete corporate takeover of every aspect of our lives continues: in case working for McDonald's isn't already trying enough, chances are that they didn't deign to give you Thanksgiving off, and guess what? You might not get Christmas off either.

    In this case I'm just as teed off at the general public's role in this: seriously, how in heaven's name are there so many people jumping at the chance to eat mass-produced junk on one of the few days a majority of employers still let employees go for? If you're willing to play the corporate pawn to this extent (for Pete's sake, do you feel anything when you look at these people's faces when you place your order?) you're almost as bad as they are.

    So? Thor has a day too y'know. It's not like people get special treatment on Thursday.

    I see your point though, haha -- I don't mean to shit up your thread or anything. Yeah that is bad.

    Ooh, ooh, I got another one!

    Instagram was planning to change its terms to allow it to sell uploaded photos without informing or compensating the uploaders - with no way to opt out except deleting your account before the change is implemented! Since then they've apparently promised to go back to the drawing board on this (in its own words, many of its customers are apparently "confused and upset" about what its real goals here were), but exactly where this goes remains to be seen.

    Here's hoping that this is one case where the free market actually works as intended, and any service provider with such awful terms sinks beneath the waves.

    That reminds me of a quote I saw Niero reference once.

    "If you're enjoying a free service, you probably are the product"

    Something to that effect, paraphrasing here of course. I might even be wrong about seeing Niero reference it. Who knows?

    edit, I think I found the quote -

    I hate the way all the politicians seem to be trying to shift this into a discussion about the wording, and whether or not he said 'pleb', and disregarding the fact he swore at a police officer. As if any regular person wouldn't be arrested on the spot for that :|

    I wouldn't say boo to an officer, nevermind anything else.

    Lol. No wonder the UN don't let you kids have guns. You'd shoot a cop just for hurting your precious little feels.

  14. #3594
    The UN? Man I hope you're kidding. But yeah don't be a dick and bring up guns otherwise the boring sorts will show up and actually debate gun control.
