says the guy from a country where a man producing normal, straight porn can go to jail because of 'obscenity' laws. A man from a country that still allows man to beat their wifes and children.

Nice try. Come back when the boy scouts stop being homophobes.

Well, that's Italy and Greece mostly. So much for the advanced part :) That royalty thing is only a façade...

says the guy from a country that not does not guarantee free speech but instead actively encourages censorship. the same country where you can get fined (a LOT) for including facebook like buttons, twitter or google+ plugins, youtube videos, flickr images or similar retarded shit on your blog.

the same country where you're forced to duplicate the information in the public whois database as an imprint on your website, because apparently whoever made the laws on that couldn't figure out tech from the 80s. where links to other websites count as approving of and including the contents of on your own website unless stated otherwise.

where it is illegal to write software that might be used to circumvent copy protection unless you're working in security.

and all that is just IT. do i need to go on with all the flaws your weird country has?

there is a difference between 'free speech' and slander, generating hatred or plain old deception.

Btw, the 'Impressum' contains a lot more information than just duplicating whois - again, to protect the innocent.

But I do not expect anything from someone hailing from Tübingen....

Not only that, but they fail at the collectivism they hold in such high regard, remaining broken into dozens of increasingly Balkanized countries and unable to get their collective act together.

Wouldn't that make most debuggers illegal? What do you do, license them to programmers after the socialists run background checks?

Not Prussian enough? Why, he's way down there, caught in Lutheran Suebi austerity, trapped between absurd French monks, beer-bellied polka-dancing Bavarians, and hooting, man-slapping Ostriches!

"protect the innocent" my ass. the only(!) additional information for any website hosted on its own domain is that it explicitly names a contact responsibe for the content and in the case of companies it includes their tax ID. both of these could've easily been integrated into whois.

but i wouldn't expect someone blinded by patriotism to consider anything might be at fault in his beloved Germany. and just to clear this up, I'm not actually in Tübingen of my own free will. But if push comes to shove, Württemberg (except Tübingen) and Bavaria are the only sane places in Germany to boot.

that would be how it had to be done if anyone doing IT regulations in .de had the slightest clue. Fortunately they don't, meaning tools like 'dd' aren't illegal either.

that's pretty much it. and to top it all off we have a Green nutcase mayor that couldn't get traffic routing through the place right if someone tied his nuts to a car battery every time he did em bad. Fortunately the retard is usually busy crying over Stuttgart 21 on his baby break.

You really need to join reality.

Your make believe world will limit you.
Indeed. He needs to know that Christians haven't just been "waking up" to the fact. They've been at it for ages.

The only reason they are limited to doing that crap in the third world is because they've already finished the job everywhere else.

Christians are the quintessential religious imperialists. Muslims are just uppity noobs. I'm positive that most of the eventual backlash against Islam from non-Muslims will come from proper no-god-but-jesus types. They have what no one else does. A capacity to inspire such extreme hatred and malevolence that can make the muzzies shit their britches. They can fight fire with fire.

I dunno. Nobody has ever wiped out any religion and its people (never mind several simultaneously) with the brutal, remorseless efficacy of Communists, and they are totally secular.

Yes. But communists are muslim allies. So we can't expect them to resist Islam.

Are they? The U.S.S.R. had a hell of a time with them, and the OIS still is. China is trying to wipe out the few they have.

They might use some as puppets for proxy warfare or resource exploitation, but so do the powers of the free world.

What specifically were you referring to? Was communist India a Muslim ally?

Yeah, I was referring to the enemy-of-my-enemy kind of alliances.
