  1. I'd assume "country of residence" fails to allow an account from that country. Only partially sensible, as true leet PC users know to VPN *before* setting up the account. The unwashed masses less so. (But IIRC billing address etc can also prevent sign up/payment, so a stolen account is still partially more desirable to some, that and just $$$ cheaper if black market)
  2. I once looked up the track alignment/finding/tracking for HDDs... even the document to the specs and run down of the physical properties and results basically said "it's magic, just accept it".
  3. This. People really don't understand the things they think they understand.
  4. The commedian made a claim "you are a fraud, lol j/k". His rights for equality, means he gets to defend himself against that claim. Thus the court case and fines. Slightly different law, but it seems a similar "meaning" to defamation/equality etc. Quebec be like "we do it our own way here". But I agree, it needs MASSIVE clarificatoin (perhaps the guy had no deformation laws to fall back on?). Then, I'll spread whatever I like about you, get you banned from all forums and games, get you to lose your job because "you're not entitled" to any of it by law... except by "equal rights" laws. Right?
  5. Yes. So, in this court case. Did they go over, if this joke had a threat to the victim. That, as he was disabled, and had (possibly) social requirements (payments from social funds/job security/living expenses from charity). that this joke did or did not stop him getting those? I guess it would be better to rule "due to physical harm", but if the law only allows for this type of ruling, then that's what it allows for. We can argue deformation/slander, or what color of blue is "real". But America has those laws (as others have tried to establish) and Quebec has gone for these ones. [edit] Emphasis mine. He publicly, joked about the persons disability, repeatedly. I wonder if they could just do a like for like ruling, and put the comedian on British TV Gameshows (but 2 wrongs don't make a right). I really really don't bother to discuss many of these things with people. As the main error, is, they forget, life and society, people and reality, goes both ways. Just wait if some big popular/power wielding person (boss/teacher/counselor/comedian) spreads some "joke" about you having it off with someone and/or stealing from the stock cupboard, and how your bonus talks go with your next performance meeting at work etc. Society has realities. I wonder if the comedian realised them too?
  6. Yes. So, in this court case. Did they go over, if this joke had a threat to the victim. That, as he was disabled, and had (possibly) social requirements (payments from social funds/job security/living expenses from charity). that this joke did or did not stop him getting those?
  7. I have not read the court papers. Have you? Did he defame him and cause harm at his place of work/work applications? You think the court case was "he upset my feelings"? Not "he accused me of money fraud, now I cannot get a rental car/flat deposit insurance".
  8. Really, like threats and everything? Sounds dangerous.
  9. Wait. So, if the Comedian Doxxed this kid, then it's illegal? So, doxxing on stage, in a stand up routine is not protected "free speech"? So, you agree, some things are not allowed under free speech?
  10. But, if someone published his pin/password/bank details "lolz, jokes". You said *no* speech should be stopped by government...
  11. But that's exactly the point. IF it is regulated "business are allowed to", it is done so, through government. Or, what do you think a business is, and a government is? Like... Do they both have rules, or not? Both Apples and Oranges are eaten.
  12. So you recon, as a moderator of this forum... I can say anything about you, LTT and Linus, just say "lol joke" at the end, and never, ever, ever say something I should be told not to, have economic recompense from (a fine) or stopped from posting/publishing? Huuuuuh!?
  13. I'm still on a 3470... I have a board ready for getting a 4790... but pricing, and performance, means I'll just scrap that board and go straight to Ryzen (I want a sub 200w, like 100w system like LTT built in that video).
