Re: Help the Iranian people

Sounds like a good cause. Too bad this sort of thing is illegal :/

Re: China, Oxford, BMW, Nissan were hacked by Turks!

Meh, good for them?

Oh, and speaking of Zone-H, something I can't figure out, when it lists time, attacker, domain, OS and the mirror, does it mean the OS the hacker used, or the OS the server was running?

Re: Popsci artice, Chinese hackers

Is it just me, or does hacking make the world a much more interesting place? In any case, I thought non-malicious hacking was called "programming" by people, at least the ones who know little of the work. But it's not like people haven't had this conception that hackers are evil scary net-...

Re: Which linux is best? and why?

If you've never used Linux before, and just want to get something up and running, then Linux Mint is for you. However, "learning the ropes" wouldn't hurt either, so you might want to go with something like Ubuntu or Debian. I definetly don't recommend Arch for a first time user though. I ...

Re: Carrying Firearms

minors do not fully understand the power of a firearm, especially with video games (and i know i sound like a friggin' parent), hence they would not realize the consequence of using the gun they carry. This is quite a misconception. Again, I've been messing with guns since I was 4 years old, and ha...

Re: Freedom of speech (was:this is why i hate ethics class)

The government shouldn't censor speech, I just feel people should have the decency to act appropriate under certain circumstances.

Your teacher is kinda crappy.

Re: Animals and Humans

I honestly think that a lot of people end up trying to justify a lot of the things they do through rationalization. Thing is about animals, they can't argue back. So whether taking out all your aggressions on a bunch of hapless puppies is an amoral act or not (I could be doing the same to small chil...

Re: Ethics at all?

I honestly, don't really believe in Ethics as a whole. To truly understand Ethics, one would have to be either a) Omniscient, or b) A God (Who would probably be omniscient anyway). As humans, we can't really develop ethics, or 'right' and 'wrong', due to the fact that everybody has differing views,...

Re: Forcing Medical Treatment

It is most definitely unethical to force someone to do something they don't want to do, but then again, his parents are forcing him to be denied medical treatment because of their beliefs, so that doesn't make them any better. As young as the kid is, he should be able to make the decision on his own...
