    That is as false as it gets.

    Anonymous groups don’t use botnets, each user makes the requests from their own computer. Criminals use botnes to perform DDOS, but with lucrative purposes only.

    Privacy!!!! You just need to balance and avoid oversharing if you are too concerned about it.

    Why does he say that DDOS’ing is the same as a protest in front of a building? DDOS’ing is almost always performed by infecting user’s PC’s with malicious features so that they “protest” against their will.
    If a DDOS attack is actually performed by lots and lots of consenting people, then I agree with his analogy, but this just isn’t the case. Ever. It’s always because of malware.

    I use AddblockPlus with the “antisocial filters” that is very sadly not in the default filters to choose from so the average user will never know about it. Not claiming it is better then ghostery, newer used it but I use adblock anyway and am not totally paranoid so this + “self destruct cookies” (so awesome plugin) is all i need ^^

    … was just totally stupid in the first place like you. I made a mistake and called it “not free Software” while I actually meant “Open source” and you know it! So what is your point? What questions does he avoid? Ridiculous, useless or just already answered questions maybe?

    You Ron have obviously no idea of license freedoms. While it is true that the GPL and other open source licenses have not necessary be the “Free Software” In a Stallman sense I never claimed such a thing. Freeware and Shareware are not Open Source and I bet my Ass of that this uninformed interviewer referred to it exactly like that. He thinks that Shareware and Freeware is “the same” as “Open Source”. RS would never even try to convince Companies to use that kind of Software so the question …

    if privacy really mattered to you why would you publically post your name, which I was able to find, your linked in page, where you work, your office hours, your phone number to your office, your fax number for your office, A review on how well you are at being a lawyer, your education, your degree’s and that is all I found in less than 2 minuets. Just think how much I would find on you if I dug deeper, I am sure I could find where exactly you live, your home phone, maybe much worse.

    Its more about spreading the interview. Name me one site that is similar to youtube, nearly as active, and supporting only fsf approved audio + video formats. Now its ironically because you support this cause, and still use something it is against, and you know and belive it. The fact of the matter is most of the FSF campaign is against but using propritary software, pretending they are free by using linux w/ gnu packages or gnu/windows(retards think by having gnu software it makes it gnu os)

    Its because richard stallmen avoids particular questions, also you are just as dumb as try to make the interviewer out to be. Open source licenses are not freesoftware licenses, Open source just means you have the source code with the product or separate nothing else. actually shareware licences share a common ground with Free software licences in the since that they can be redistributed, but that is only if the “shareware” is following a pure share ware licences and not some bastardized one.

    Richard stallman considers ubuntu spyware because the results typed in are sent to conical, which then are sent to amazon and other companies. You can simply turn it off or install another desktop envirorment and never have to deal with it, but richard stallmen does not state this because he wants to go after anyone supporting amazon, because he is boycotting amazon for requesting user data which is used for shipping, and selling to ad companies, and search engines.

    Privacy is a huge concern and I agree it’s not fair how some companies are dealing with user privacy issues. Sad.

    The interviewer seems to have no idea about this. “How to convince companies to use FREEWARE and SHAREWARE?” Omg Freeware and Shareware are NOT free software, Freeware is just 0$ download but has nothing to do with open source licenses. And Shareware, if you don’t know what this is then look it up on Wikipedia but this is in no ways even related to “Free (as in speech) software”!

    1. Disapprove of and attempt to prevent, esp. by argument: “those who oppose capital punishment”.

    That’s how I understand oppose, perhaps you have another definition. You said:
    You’ve opposed democracy to communism as if those are the only choices.

    Perhaps you meant to say I oppose communism to democracy? If so then yes. In regard to as if those are the only choices, sure there are other systems, but I was comparing western system to china.

    Do you not understand the sense of ‘oppose’ in this sentence?

    I said opposed X to Y, not you opposed X.

    Never did I say I oppose democracy, if anything, I oppose communism because it doesn’t give the people a method to choose their own government easily if they don’t agree with the current one.

    That said democracy vs communism is not equal to freedom vs non-freedom. Democracy doesn’t equal freedom nor does communism equal oppression or the other way around. It’s how those in power choose to use the system, that is the point I was trying to make. I’m discussing ethics not political systems.

    7 mayo, 2013

    I don’t know if you’re implying I oppose democracy? Personally I support democracy than communism because democracy means there is “more choice”. That doesn’t mean that works all the time as intended, like communism, but it’s a bit more coice. That said, I don’t fully agree with how we run it in the west, I have my own ideas that would make it work better but I personally believe it’s better. I believe in freedom though & hold nothing against others who disagree with me as long as they the same.

    “Someone was taken into custody by the FBI” “Questioned about his facebook posts” “Questioned about why he was talking about the government the way he was” I would like to believe that you are smarter than that, that this guy obviously said or did more than what was on the surface. Service members aren’t usually the smartest guys in the world and often make incredibly stupid and violent statements on facebook and are never questioned let alone arrested – there is more to this story.

    See? This is one reason I don’t join the military. Nope, not me. I rather keep on playing Call Of Duty videogames where you don’t have to deal with these politics. Besides, there is a rumor that if you die in Afghanistan fighting the bad guys, that you aren’t able to re-spawn. Hell naw!! No fun in that.

    You have the RIGHT. Except nobody will listen to you, you’ll be called the criminal, you’ll be imprisoned. Assuming the cop doesn’t kill you in the process. Or at least seriously wound you, which you’ll have to experience. Never been shot, but I assume it isn’t pleasant.
