In the News "Peers and scientists including Professor Stephen Hawking are once again pushing for an official pardon for codebreaker Alan Turing. Turing's death from cyanide poisoning in 1954 was ruled a suicide, coming after his conviction for gross indecency at a time when homosexuality was illegal." The fact that he still hasn't been pardoned is an utter disgrace.

I just noticed this:

Case-in-point: you think that WereCatf was making an "all-or-nothing" argument. She was not.


Direct quotes from WereCatf herself:

Either call for pardoning for all the people prosecuted under the homosexuality-is-illegal law or none.


Either seek for pardon for them all and fail at that, or don't seek pardon for any of them.


Forget Turing, I think I deserve an apology. Or am I not famous enough for you?
