    Re: Big Brother Thread

    Agree on real names and etc. Youd find sites folding up all over the place.
    From my perspective? I wouldnt want to know real names etc because it would be alot of work and I wouldnt want to be responsible for having the information.
    Pretty nuch as it is...if a site administrator really wanted to spend the time
    he might be able to find the person attached to a static ip addy.
    But generally there is no reason to bother.

    But what the guy is suggesting would be a royal pain in the ass
    for site owners.

    The only thing even remotely similar that might be a fair idea?
    Users being able to put a lock on their usernames. So the same jimzinsocal that posts here is the same one that might post at PowerLine. But thats as far as Id ever go.

    Janis Joplin could really rock… One of my all time favorite female vocalists.

    Promote then, as an object of primary importance, institutions for the general diffusion of knowledge. In proportion as the structure of a government gives force to public opinion, it is essential that public opinion should be enlightened.

    Drivers to get parking tickets in the post from 'Big Brother' CCTV cameras

    Time to copy James Bond's Aston Martin and get some rotating number plates made up.

    Or a rifle.

    Some cities here are actually closing the cameras. They dont generate enough revenue to make the enterprise worthwhile.
    And we were all told it was about "safety" Sure it was.

    so, what's that blue blinking light on most cars near the steering wheel for?
    Max Plank: "A new scientific truth does not
    triumph by convincing its opponents and making them
    see the light,
    but rather because its opponents eventually die"
    Arthur Shopenhauer: "Every truth passes through three stages before it is recognized.
    First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is opposed. Third, it is regarded as self evident."
    Martin Niemöller:
    "When the Nazis came for the communists,
    I remained silent;I was not a communist.
    When they locked up the social democrats,I remained silent;
    I was not a social democrat.When they came for the trade unionists,I did not speak out;
    I was not a trade unionist.When they came for the Jews,
    I remained silent;I wasn't a Jew.When they came for me,
    there was no one left to speak out."
