In the News And thus, our true colours reveal. Since Obama was the young newcomer, technically savvy, many of us were hoping that he might support patent and/or copyright reform. In case our story earlier on this subject didn't already tip you off, this certainly will: Obama has sided squarely with the RIAA/MPAA lobby, and backs ACTA. No copyright and/or patent reform for you, American citizens!

You're missing the point. The irony is in the timing when he said that, he spoke of war while receiving the peace prise.


I don't see where StychoKiller said that, which was the comment I was responding to. And at least 3 people modded it up, so it seemed worthwhile to correct.

Is there any irony in a comment replying directly to me being oblivious to threaded comments?

Irony would be you complaining about people not reading through the thread while yourself, not reading back through the thread and realizing that StychoKiller's comment related to the original comment by SReilly who clearly pointed out the "ra ra war" comment during the peace prize presentation.

Neither the first level response nor StychoKiller's response did that, only other second-level responses (including your postdated one) that I did not respond to. I also do not complain about "people," just darknexus.

Additionally, SReilly's first comment is not clear that he means the timing of the statement is ironic, instead of its content — "the irony in that statement."

StychoKiller's comment also makes no sense if you believe he's talking about the "timing" of supporting wars.

But I guess I'm wrong because my comments don't fit in with the tone and "larger point" of the comments in total, which are receiving high marks no matter their factual content or originally. Jesus.
