I don't have the best radar for irony, but I think I am picking some up.

The money did not influence the outcome of the trial. It merely paid for lawyers that had a winning argument already. What is immoral about that?

Nothing at all, I was merely around for the community of it.

Hobbyists don't usually drop 10k+ on little ASIC farms, that is left to misguided investors.

"Science"

Not only do I agree that these phrases aren't necessarily meaningless because they were not intended to be hold meaning, but IIRC the 'researcher' said the average ratings for these statements were about ~2.3/5 or "relatively profound" - something that strikes me as merely being worth pause, rather than this genius scholar's successful trickery in getting plebs to believe in like, totally fake philosophy that he like, didn't even muse on.

As a Schengen state, how effective could that be?

It may be sour, but is it wrong?

I'm really not happy about this either, and fake quotes are usually quite obvious, but as a title here it ends up being just as dishonest as cheeky, and does little credit to the cause as such.

I didn't see any quote by Murdoch in the article.

Ugh, don't we have a swanky and well funded internet-based startup to fix this yet?

Surely, but it won't be easy. As far as I know the Federal Arbitration Act provides practically no oversight of arbitrators, and instead just exists to make whatever trash said arbitrator puts on a slip of paper is legally binding, so we must then look to case law, but in the supreme court instances the rulings have consistently ruled in favor of unbreakable waivers of rights to trial.

All thanks to the supreme court for allowing a table of life-long partisans to disregard the right to a fair trial.

Iceland has truly handled 2008 the best, but don't forget that somebody always gets burned.

I'm plenty skeptical, of course, though this is at least better than magical cubesats to beam "WiFi" to consumer cellphones.
