    Trolling?

    If someone could explain how the following post is trolling (CoC: "Trolling is posting in a way that provokes emotional responses.")
    I'd be very grateful:

  2. Re: Website ToS violations now legal - jailed?

    The point of my thread was that there's no need to argue about it any more. It's being officially clarified as legal.

    Re: Apple's lawsuit about the Galaxy Tab

    But I do understand it. I just don't care if I use it correctly.

    You're just paraphrasing me now.

    Re: Apple's lawsuit about the Galaxy Tab

    But I don't care what it means...Apple sue for their bottom line (sensibly).


    If it were a single dimension that would be true. With multiple dimensions it's shape.

    Every company on the planet would LOVE to be the only player in their market, Apple included. Apple don't sue for holistic purposes, they sue to improve their bottom line (which is perfectly...

    Um, you ignored half the logic in the sentence: " Majority rules that system, so by definition posts that stay visible are the ones most people want to discuss."

    So they're the same except where they're different? That applies equally well to any two objects on earth.

    Er, didn't mention "killing" or "disallowing", just "moving".



    "Better" assumes that new posts are of more value, which is not necessarily correct.

    64 bit Flash works great for me.
