  • Replied in Nikon
    Agreed.  The point is integrity and character.  However, it's not quite so simple.  A person must be true to her values, and if her values only permitted her to manufacture items for her country's ...
  • Replied in Dilemna
    I have tried to figure out where this surprisingly common error originates.  Is it that we form an image of similar words, such as condemn ?  Yet, we indemnify , and even pronounce it correctly. Ma ...
  • Yes, the laws aren't made FOR the people.  They are made BY the people.  Hence my Latin aphorism. As I was careful to say, laws are intended to be applied equally, but they rarely are.  It does not ...
  • That isn't the problem at all.  The problem isn't getting caught, but doing something wrong.  If you can get past doing wrong, nothing else matters in the achievement of your aims, save perhaps ...
  • The author is all over the place and undermined her credibility as a result. She states, unapologetically that she doesn't fault the French for culturally doing what she impugns Slick Willie for ...
  • No.  If you aren't more curious than to use your valuable time in a contradictory attempt to convince us that you have so little of it, that's the only answer I think you may have time to read.
  • [In my best British accent...] "Oh, aren't they just."
  • Nature has rendered many things we take for food today genetically modified from what it was even 20K years ago.  Yet, we live eating these genetically modified foods.  I don't know for certain, ...
  • Exactly, but these people won't be told a thing...just like the dead driver.  She knew it all. There is the judiciary that determines fault and right.  Then there is the executive branch, including ...
  • More to the point, which of the two would be right for doing so...or wrong?  I ask this because what you have posted sounds like "tu quoque." (You do it as well.)
  • Two basic rules that would really simplify if all adhered to them: Do not feed the trolls. (DNFT) Feel free to disagree, but not to be disagreeable.
  • I see what you mean.  Those doing so make an error in reasoning, though, as much as the ad hominem is.  It is one thing to draw attention to assertions, or to objectionable conduct, but quite ...
  • You haven't answered except obliquely, so I'll assume you are actually asking me if I prefer a heavily moderated touch, including that repeat questions are heavily expunged. No, I don't normally ...
  • Is your question rhetorical, or are you actually asking me if I would like to be on a forum with the constraints you mention?
  • Replied in So
    The word 'loath' comes to mind.  It's a campy affectation, and it grates.
  • A code of conduct worth any investment in resources by the host must have the executive power behind it for it to work.  I think most public fora of this nature would need a substantial investment ...
  • See the mod's explanation and expression of regret.  We can all move one now, or are you going to insist upon some other form of contrition?
  • I agree with you.  Soon, men will be irrelevant.  And when the first female robot is on line, so will be the women. Last person redundant, please turn out the lights.
  • You have framed your dilemma, or a dilemma as it seems to you, as an either/or proposition. Why must one be at the expense of the other?  True, dollars spent on a tight budget can't be spent on ...
  • Whichever answers you are offered, they will all be relative and subjective.  Only you can decide how to value both your time and your money. I offer this advice: Firstly, learn what the real and ...
