Also a good one here. It may well be too late for free software, because we didn't stop the cancer several stages before it metastatized to where we are now. Maybe all that's left is palliative care, and handing real innovation back to the megacorps - which will suck, but this is the world you demanded. http://benjaminrosshoffman.com/construction-beacons/
Time for this one again. You think ever weird dude you tolerate drives away ten women?

I wish I had words to describe how really bad and unacceptable ad hominem argumentation is. I've written thousands of them, but seemingly to no effect.

Well, the pile of wooden chunks I had stashed in a corner of the backyard to wait until I could dispose of them, has disappeared. That saves me having to figure out how to do the disposal. If someone who actually wanted some wood chunks took them, great. But it makes me wonder A. is one of my neighbours now mad at me in the incorrect belief I was just going to leave the pile there forever? and B. if I leave something out that is not garbage, do I have to worry that that may disappear too?
