Don't worry, it takes way more than that to get me upset. Way less to be blunt, though.

"mk, I wish many on this site would quit being so thin skinned."

Likewise.

"Since 'this is second-hand reporting' do you or will you accept it? " On balance, in this case, yes. "If someone says the transcript existed, but is now a classified document belonging to a government and you can't see it will you accept it?" No. "Is PBS a reliable news sou...

"Why, mk?" Because establishing facts is essential for healthy debate, while the tactics which are substituted in their absence are not. "Only if it agrees with your position, I bet!" What's your wager? Post a reliable citation, I'm genuinely interested and will gladly help argue...

"My hypothalamus must be less developed, since my cravings tend to go towards basic taste directions, e.g. something salty, something sweet, something umami, &c." Good for you, though I can tell from your vocabulary that you're not six years old! And I had it a bit tongue-in-cheek back...

... it's the nouns. When you crave something, does your inner monologue say "I sure could go for a burger and fries right now?" or "I sure could go for McDonald's right now?" The merciless, reptilian, value-neutral hypothalamus has been taught a few words, and they are often priv...

The most unsettling part is that this guy held a position of power, and is so fundamentally disconnected from reality. Parsing Bennett: "I don't think it is either, because first of all, there is just too much that you don't know. " He's on the right track, but partially full of crap: ther...

"Apparently, you don't realise that Norway is on Al Qaeda's list. "

Can you please post a mainstream-media link to this list? (ie: a reliable citation of a statement by the organization itself)

Thanks in advance.

This isn't about censorship, it's about domain name to IP address mapping. That alone cannot effectively be used for censorship. Further, we're talking about a technical standard; someone needs to ultimately steer it, otherwise it wouldn't work! U.S. Commerce Dept. should certainly not have ultimate...

I too could not find stats from the offender side, however there were plenty of such stats regarding victims. That was my attempt to point out the irony of the "racist" argument: Bennett's "racist" argument would actually do more to lower crime by eliminating the most significant...

"with one man actually claiming that his words weren't bigoted, that it was just a hypothethical arguement." His argument was not bigoted, though it was presented in a way that betrayed an underlying bigotry in his patterns of thought. The ostensible argument was that coming up with a poli...

I bet there are many, many moderated lists and forums in the good 'ol US of A that would show you the door. Nice attempt (yet again) to attach official national pedigree to what happens to be a privately, legally-run website with multinational participants, and claiming no such thing could possibly ...

Looking forward to the better solution, Dr. C. Just don't ban these guys altogether. Sometimes this stuff, at the social level, is as useful as the context itself. Also it would just give them what they wanted and violate an important principle (either free speech, or democracy requires thick skin, ...
