I mean the correct thing to do is not come to a conclusion until or unless more information comes to light.

No need to jump to a yes or no as soon as an accusation of anything comes to light.

People also don't generally benefit from making the accusation, and usually suffer because of it. If she's making the accusation in a public way, odds are she's tried in a quiet fashion and got silenced.

This, pretty much. Especially coming from the woman at the center of Gamer Gate. It's surprising, for her own well-being, both mental and physical, that she's made such a public statement. I believe her.

Now, normally I don't wish death upon people. I'm really, really not that kind of person.

Boris? Yeah, if he was found to have died from a stroke overnight I'd be actively happy at this point, since he's decided democracy is only good if it goes his way.

Sorry for being an ignorant, but is that Boris Johnson? I saw he's been in the news in a negative light but hadn't gotten a chance to read anything.

Yep. Guy decided that since our parliamentary democracy is getting in the way of a no-deal brexit (Should be noted that there isn't a majority for that. There was (And maybe still is or maybe isn't, depending on the accuracy of the polling) for a brexit, but not no-deal) he'll suspend parliamentary democracy, riding on the wave of "This is what you voted foooooooooooooor!"

It's just... Gah. Maybe the UK needs this to make people more politically aware, we've been getting raw dogged by politicians for the last decade at the very least and the collective response has been either "Meh" or "We need to do something" followed by nothing except maybe a day long protest that makes barely impact because it's only lasted a day.

I mean, I'll cross post my response from the Europol thread:

Quote
I think you're being somewhat harsh. The political class is largely the same everywhere, though admittedly with slight variations depending on culture. Also, I doubt Johnson wants to be a dictator. I get the impression he's being politically expedient and sees it as a way to buy himself two weeks' breathing room. It's a break in which he can develop and propose his own, rather than Mays', legislative plans to parliament.

Though I'd also like to add that you were a fervent supporter of the bid to hold a second referendum when the first didn't go quite as planned. In that light

This is normal.

Alternatively, dress up as a sexy gay pirate.

Why?

Hey, don't look at me. I don't have all the answers.

So I got this fancy USB 3.0 video card, it's kind of the more professional tier that bridges the gap between analogue and digital, like I could output my monitor on an oldschool tv if I wanted to, or upscale analog signal up to 1080p30, swap between interlaced and not... a bunch of stuff I don't need; I just took it because it has native support for the specific software I'm using, so instead of "going trough the system drivers" the software and hardware communicate directly.

It works as advertised, been playing PS2 for a day now, then I wanted to try the SNES... Then I found out the SNES has a 256◊224 resolution which my videocard manufacturer doesn't consider "broadcasting standard". Yes because the SNES and Megadrive were just too obscure of a gimmicky plastic urban myth for the resolution to be considered somewhat mainstream - standard you might say.


GUUUUUH fuck my soul  >:(
