Legal "Alan Turing, the Enigma codebreaker who took his own life after being convicted of gross indecency under anti-homosexuality legislation, is to be given a posthumous pardon. The government signalled on Friday that it is prepared to support a backbench bill that would pardon Turing, who died from cyanide poisoning at the age of 41 in 1954 after he was subjected to 'chemical castration'." Justice.

Well guess what, arseholes, I was right.
...
They can't handle the fact I proved them wrong, leaving the arseholes above with high votes.


Do you think you charming way with words might have something to do with that?

Its an emotive subject, & I happen to think you're about right with your opinions on it, but you're flinging a lot of invectives around at people who are basically just suggesting different legal ways of delivering the same kind justice to the wrongly persecuted.

No.

See, in the Engelbart thread, I said something to the effect of:

"Cue the responses that say recognition of one person magically reduces the amount of recognition available for others"

In that tone. Sarcastic, yes, but not offensive at all.

but you're flinging a lot of invectives around at people who are basically just suggesting different legal ways of delivering the same kind justice to the wrongly persecuted.


This subject came up before and I was exposed to the same, unchanged, nonsensical arguments there so I saw no reason to start all over again. Start off from where I left off before, with the realization that they're arseholes, with their magical dwindling supply of recognition and pardons.
