    The cloud. Everything is going to it. Photos, apps, movies, etc.
    And all of them are vulnerable to the whims of those who run the cloud
    you find them in. Morality changes from one year to the next
    (remember nudity and swearing on network TV in the 1990's?) no
    problem, they'll edit it "for" you, since there is no more ownership,
    physical ownership of products. Welcome to the "renters" world of
    computing, socialism for the techno-masses.

    Plus, and this is the best one, that poor Netflix streaming movie
    viewers are now finding, capping of download bandwidth and charges for
    overages are going to be the cash-cow for service providers.

    Rich is at it again.
    1. No one is forcing anyone to use the cloud.
    2. Many large businesses are starting to use the cloud
    3. I question whether Rich even knows the security measures in cloud
    computing that prohibit interference with data.

    Yes I to am not comfortable using the cloud, as I like things close to
    home, for many other reasons. But the objection posed by Rich is merely
    another fantasized Rishism.

    Not yet, but that is just the next step in the chain. Oh, and Ubisoft does
    force people to use the cloud for game saves as a part of their shit DRM
    scheme.

    Back to kindergarden with you two. Learn proper social behaviour,
    or at least broaden your vocabularity for name calling.

    Scatology is so anal expulsive, George ... you should have been
    better handled before kindergarden.

    And "X" (whew, what a *clever* name), calling a male a female
    sexual organ only displays your insecurity around the opposite
    gender, and your misogynist world view.

    Notice how the superior human, prime Aryan material, puts down
    everyone else into their place. Subhuman beings being the only
    ones daring to disagree with him, he rightfully uses swearwords
    to deal with them --- he can't beat them into submission by a
    brutal crackdown --- and shows his mastery of the language.

    Watch the absulute alliteration in "squirted ... squatting" and
    "terrible thing", an age-old Germanic rhyming scheme, in which
    he proudly proves his ancient Germanic ancestry. On the other
    hand observe his rather, ah, elementary knowledge of medicine and
    his misuse of technical terms, showing his unreachable phantasy
    of dissociating himself from the mental have-nots he belongs to.
    On the gripping hand, of course he lies with his last word.


    He's of course prime material for the SA, once he's learned to
    obey and love his German overlords. All the necessary elements are
    there: xenophobia, sexual supression feeding his hatred for anyone
    unlike him, subhumanizing anyone who disagrees with him, hiding
    behind a fake name, his complete recreancy (unless in a numerically
    well superior mob) and of course the complete exchange of brain
    for shits and prejudice. He's the kind of lemming following the
    common herd of his comrades that the SA needs, a stupid, blunt,
    but dangerous tool to smash enemies of the 3rd Reich. (He's
    too unsophisticated and too anger ridden for the SS.)

    BTW, you should do something about your homophobia and your

    You've got a funny way of saying "You're right, and I have no

    insane."

    Right. You were just trying to hurt me and used what you
    fear most. Which says a lot about you --- you're evil, you're
    a homophobe (see how he thinks homosexuality is perverse) and
    you're fascinated by cock sucking.

    You never thought, full stop.

    But that you come to think of parasite as the first thing
    suggests you project your self image again. Why do you think
    you're a parasite, George? Any special reason?

    You seem to need that. Maybe being finally in the open

    Aha! I did describe something close to your personal fantasy.
    Now you're trying to laugh it off. A sure sign of a solid hit.

    What did I miss? Do you fancy being tied to the bed first?
    Being shaved gently from head to heel? Your partner to have not
    a single hair on their head?

    Oh, BTW, I'm not projecting. I (and everyone relevant) knows
    my sexual fantasies -- and they are not the above.

    George shouldn't have resorted to name-calling tactics; ethnic
    slurs are frowned upon, especially.

    Although, "Kraut" has been commonly used, in Hollywood movies
    set in World War II. (It isn't considered vicious, apparently.)

    You're reading a lot, into his words (unless being satirical,
    of course).

    "SS" is familiar, but...what's this "SA" thing, anyhow?
