Microsoft From Bloomberg: "Microsoft, the world's largest software company, provides intelligence agencies with information about bugs in its popular software before it publicly releases a fix, according to two people familiar with the process. That information can be used to protect government computers and to access the computers of terrorists or military foes." The lid has officially been blown off.

This is really getting ridiculous. I did not say that China did it because they already knew about PRISM


What? Where did I ever state otherwise? (Hint: I didn't). If you're really that incapable of basic reading comprehension, that would explain a few things...

you created this in your own obtuse mind


Hey look, I have my own personal copycat - how adorable.

In your next reply, be sure to include something along the lines of "no, YOU have bad reading comprehension" (if you're going to be lazy and witless, then you might as well be consistent about it).

You are the one arguing that China did it ONLY to prevent their citizens to get information abroad. A big and narrow minded assumption if you ask me. So burden of proof applies very well to your case.


You really are fond of the "I know you are, but what am I" schtick, aren't you? Hate to break it to you, but I never actually claimed that domestic censorship was the only reason for the GFC - just the primary reason. And 3 posts in, you STILL haven't provided anything to back up your claims, other than vague supposition.

Also, burden of proof doesn't work that way. You made the initial claim, you failed to substantiate it in any way, so the burden of proof was (and still IS) yours.

I guess you only studied history on USA books.


Too bad I'm not actually an American, genius. I was waiting for someone to make that lazy assumption - and you were the first one gullible enough to take the bait, congrats!

The rest of your arguments are all alike, just nonsense ramblings or full of assumptions about not said things.


Right, that must be why your counter-"arguments" have consisted of nothing more than dodging, backpedaling, and willful ignorance.
