    LePawel got a reaction from IAcKI in OFCOM to Regulate Social Media in the UK   
    I get you're passionate about this, but I disagree. Government body deciding what is or isn't news-worthy or worse valid on a public forum is a road to censorship, always.
    Newspapers that talk shite will die off with the generation that reads them. If you want them to stop generating these articles stop opening their websites, educate people around you to do the same. Government is not the answer here
    It's up to the individual to decide what you read/watch, you cannot force that choice down people's throats, that leads to indoctrination, control of the media when abused.
    Offense itself is subjective, some will find BBC news articles talking about cases of "rape, abuse, paedophillia" offensive, is just talking about these too much? what defines abuse? same for racial hatred, what is considered hate in one context is friendly in another, UK's "hate-speech" laws literally say it's up to the offended to decide what constitutes offensive content, there's no definition.
    UK already has laws against discrimination and abuse, and ridiculously strict ones at that, they are so seletively enforced however it's no wonder it sometimes feels like there's nothing in place.
    On top of that Brits are so self-concious and scared of speaking their minds it's a genuine minefield talking about anything "controversial" in my office, they're voluntarily surrendering itself to the Gov, but then it feels like UK was always about passing another law, that'll surely fix it (check: porn filter). It's conflict avoidance at all costs, because otherwise you're called an -ist and we all know that's like, super bad!
    There are very simple solutions to these problems, like classifying social media as either a publisher or a platform, and enforcing law based on that classification.
    You don't need more government bodies doing more pointless busy work while complaining there's not enough money from taxes to fund the NHS.

    LePawel got a reaction from TheSLSAMG in DeepText - Instagram tests out AI bullying deterrent   
    Say what you want, don't stop me from saying what I want because you find it offensive. I have a right to joke, you have a right to tell me you don't like it and I have a right to tell you go f yourself if I feel like it on top of it all.
    Private companies that operate virtual monopolies on modern communication trying to tell you what you can and cannot say, what "may be" inappropriate or suggesting you're out of line is precisely what stop me from joking and you from telling me you think they're not funny.
    Once you start censoring selectively to cater to a group of people, you'll get more groups asking for same treatment, ending up with UK Police proactively scanning twitter for "hate incidents", whatever they are or Canadian universities bringing a student to tears during a disciplinary meeting because she played a YT video they didn't agree with.
    The street is two way indeed and let's keep it that way.

    LePawel got a reaction from Taf the Ghost in Which GPU you have for video rendering doesn't matter as long as you have one   
    This just means that gpu rendering is bottlenecked by another component. 
    He should find which and do more tests based with different classes of that bottlenecked component.

    Sounds so pretentious... "My case manufacturer doesn't do TG therefore it's better".
    Or one of those "I don't like A therefore you are not allowed to enjoy it either".

    LePawel got a reaction from ARikozuM in theshadowbrokers asserts that the NSA pays Microsoft to keep vulnerabilities open, to be exploited   
    Another uninformed alternative fact spreading. They had a patch in Feb, they built it for all platforms for private, expensive support, then they released it on all officially supported platforms to the public in March.
    They only released it in May on XP/other old OSes for free because of the scale of attack and type of targets, they wouldn't otherwise.
    I love people that shit on companies before knowing stuff...

    LePawel got a reaction from cluelessgenius in Help me C# basic script wont work dont know why   
    You've put the 
    if(transform.position.y < -2.0f) { Die(); } inside OncollisionEnter function. This only gets called when you collide with something (like an enemy)
    You want to put that if statement in Update() instead (after the translate to avoid 1-frame lag) so that it get's checked every frame.
    Your code would only work now if you collided with something while already falling through a world.
