: the reality of the pax event.

Actually, they fucking did. Don't believe everything you hear online. https://na.leagueoflegends.com/en/news/community/community-events/riot-pax-west > Right next door in Room 613 **we’re hosting a variety of sessions to support women and non-binary folks who are interested in getting into games professionally**. Stop by to learn from and get to know some of the badass women of Riot! Tentative schedule below, but all subject to change—stop by the room Friday-Monday for a daily schedule. Emphasis mine. Then if anyone complaining about getting excluded bothered to look up the room Riot was hosting this in, they'd see that the room is pretty tiny https://www.wscc.com/sites/default/files/find-it/files/WSCC_%26_TCC_Floor_Plans_Capacities_%26_Dimensions_May_2015.pdf This conflict was started by misogynists looking to pillory Riot, and Riot played right into their hands. You have an event in a small room that Riot clearly wanted to be a sideshow to the main event elsewhere, but misogynists outraged that females were getting special treatment made it out to be a lot more than it actually was. They never talked about Riot's main event. They never mentioned exactly what room it was in. They never mentioned that Riot said it was explicitly female-focused. And you know what, their campaign of misinformation and insults succeeded. They convinced the public at large that this was a major Riot event and they baited an easily baitable rioter into saying outrageous things. Daniel Z Klein needs to shut the fuck up and stop fanning the flames, but the only thing that I can fault Riot for is failing to take into account that many people want to work at Riot. This event wasn't a "fuck you" to men that its detractors want to make it out to be; rather it was just focused on recruiting women. Riot should have announced a broader recruiting agenda, but honestly the community's response to this destroyed the chance of this.
: Riot, there's only one way I can see you starting to get yourself out of this mess.
1 is actually a very risky proposition under California law. It can be done, but in order to be legal, the reason for firing needs to be divorced from the political speech component. Any Rioter employed in the state of California could go on twitter and say that in their opinion, anyone complaining about the PAX event is a manbaby and Riot would be unable to do a damn thing about it. You know there is no way in hell 2 is going to happen, because the organizers sincerely believe there is nothing wrong with limiting an event only to women. And honestly, there's precedence. You don't invite men to a bachlorette party and you don't invite women to a bachelor party. A big part of both of those is that you can do stereotypical gendered things without fear of judgement from the opposite sex. The most you can hope for is that riot releases a statement about how they planned for this to be a smaller, more intimate event and that they didn't expect such an outpouring of interest in how to get women more involved in the game industry (because if you actually read what the entirety of the talks were focused around, it was this). 3....lol nope. Assuming that I went to PAX and I was interested in the panel, I'd then have to find a way to take additional time off work to attend the new panel, all on short notice. Honestly, this is a case where Riot could actually make a great PR effort at showing their attempt to make a more inclusive culture, by hosting a rerun of the panel virtually. I am an introvert, and I find conferences to be a bit intimidating and tiring. One of the things that Riot has been notorious about is its treatment of introverts. Even before the Kotaku article, people had always talked about how if you had an idea at riot, you had to be brazen about pushing it. That's a terrible environment for introverts and by doing all of their recruiting at cons they don't really do anything to promote hiring more introverts. Plus, it's obvious that many people who had no plans to even attend PAX were interested in these talks, and what would be a better way to ensure that everyone gets to hear them?

You forget about the Spanish American War, where we took the Philippines from Spain. Furthermore the Monroe Doctrine isn't an isolationist doctrine - it very clearly establishes an extraterritorial sphere of influence over the Americas and we definitely did fuck with the politics of other nations.

It's taking it out of the hands of money-grubbing corporations. I'm a network engineer that's worked in education/research. We hand out gigabit ports like they are candy. If I saw ISPs charging an arm and a leg for access and then investing it in their equipment I'd understand, but they aren't. Instead of investing it, they turn around, add data caps and boost the price. The government has subsidized a good chunk of the ISPs infrastructure and in return they promised to deliver a certain level of service. We let them keep the money anyways.

I made a post about it quite a while ago when the fed gave up ownership of it to some private company. ICANN has zero control over net neutrality. They handle stuff like domain names and ip addresses. They can't mandate that Autonomous Systems treat traffic as equal regardless of origin. That falls with the FCC, who regulates ISPs as a utility. ICANN is still a company formed under Califonia law. They can't do whatever they want.

Typical conservativespeak. You cannot have a proper democracy without a vigorous opposition. Trump won, which means he will have the duty to uphold and defend the constitution.

He's occasionally smart when it comes to business but he's made his fortune manipulating politicians and the public and using the law to advance his ends.

Good luck. Fucking hate issues like these that'll cost you time that adds up and opportunities cause its slow.

: Would requiring employers that pay below a certain wage to have fixed schedules improve quality
If you're hourly your employer should be mandated to have you work on a fixed schedule. Any time worked outside of that schedule should be treated as time and a half.

: So, it's been a few weeks, how do you feel about Trump now?
Trump is doing exactly what I feared he would do - put people in power who will serve to enrich him.
: Is Edward Snowden a patriot or a traitor?
An idiot. I can't consider him to be a traitor because the stuff he exposed needed exposing I have trouble calling him a patriot however because he's hiding in russia.

: GD a little help
hmm so 5+ hours running off of the flash drive and no crash that combined with the built-in diagnostics failing to come up with anything makes me think that the issue is in fact a driver problem or hardware compatibility issue between the ssd and Intels fancy raid storage mode. So after much consternation I managed to get the laptop to boot Windows in AHCI mode, so I guess it's time to let it sit overnight and check for a crash in the morning.

If a rma was an option that would have been done. Instead we have a tech come out to repair it. Which has already been attempted once to replace the failed motherboard. after which (last thursday) he declared the hardware was fully functional. Besides I like trying to debug this stuff. There's a decent chance the issue is in fact a software problem, in which the answer is to ditch windows (I don't need windows).

And thats fine. Just don't include me in it. I don't know which ones were confidential, but the fact is they were confidential. The fact is, even if they weren't hacked, keeping confidential information on your own private server is illegal. THAT'S THE BIG ISSUE. And where's the proof the RNC was hacked? Hell, quick look up on google says those reports are false and that a dude went on CNN, fucking CNN and said that was false. > “The intelligence is wrong,” Spicer told Smerconish. “It didn’t happened. We offered the New York Times conclusive proof that it didn’t happen. They ignored it. They refused to look at it because it didn’t fit the narrative.” http://dailycaller.com/2016/12/10/rnc-spokesman-slams-wp-nyt-report-the-russians-never-hacked-us-video/ You act like Hillary would be any better than Trump would be and you blind yourself with your bias to keep it that way despite the fact Hillary is just as bad as Trump. Hillary would be just as much "killing ourselves" as Trump. Edit: Hell, and even if both get hacked there's a difference between even both of them and HILLARY'S PRIVATE SERVER WHICH HAS CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION ON IT That is the big issue, the confidential information on the server. But you choose to blindly ignore it because you like Hillary.

Hillary would be just as destructive if not more so than Trump because she's shown not only how underhanded she is, but just how little she's held responsible for her actions. She'd be able to do whatever she wants with little to no contest. Congress can stop Trump. They wouldn't stop Hillary. congress won't stop trump because it's controlled by republicans republicans who did stop obama btw and would have stopped hillary too the last time obama did something major was when democrats had control of both the house and senate for the next two years there's gonna be nothing stopping the trump train
