  • Commented on A purely theoretical dilemma
    Well, disagree, but if you insist on "ants versus humans" analogy then fine. I routinely "lie" to ants promising them food and giving them subtle poison instead. I do this via a special chemical trap that costs the equivalent of...
  • Commented on A purely theoretical dilemma
    Generally speaking I assume aliens in these situations to be 100% telling the truth, because when you have FTL and true AI and all that fun stuff and are talking to a civilisation that doesn't, why do you have to...
  • Commented on A purely theoretical dilemma
    Or, alternatively, that it's those simulated mind that recognize it as a probable ruse that get "stamp of approval" as successful experiment products. You don't really know what kind of results "simulation admin" is looking for :-)...
  • Commented on A purely theoretical dilemma
    Well, demonstrating causality-preserving FTL should not really be a problem for a civilization that allegedly has it. If these guys refuse citing mumble-mumble-technobabble, the probability of them being some kind of starfaring 419 scam increases profoundly....
  • Commented on A purely theoretical dilemma
    LOL, indeed, FTL implies timetravel, so in fact they should already know how it all goes down....
  • Commented on A purely theoretical dilemma
    Given that vacuum catastrophes are supposed to be universal " Studies show that in all identified previous cosmoi, individualist tool-using sophonts with access to these technologies harboured splinter groups so deranged that they collapsed the vacuum energy." seems dubious. Vacuum...
  • Commented on Markov Chain Dirty To Me
    P.S.: while I appreciate Ninoy/Benu sticking up for me and going after the "suspected malefactors" that tried to dox me, a cursory google search suggests that "consultant dot com" is a free email service address, and cintel is about as...
  • Commented on Markov Chain Dirty To Me
    Didn't see it initially, but found it in "that archive site". As far as attempts to dox me go, this one wasn't very good, but since it "generated some job-related work" for you :-) I guess it would be prudent...
  • Commented on Markov Chain Dirty To Me
    Steve Post, a radio announcer on New York City's WBAI (kinda mostly actually left wing even now, a rarity in the U.S..) used to quip that "three lefts make a right" and/or maybe "three rights make a left" Oh,...
  • Commented on Markov Chain Dirty To Me
    This sounds weird. I've met a lot of radical leftists over the years because I am one. Anti sex-workers rights postions? Heard something along the lines a few times, but definitvly a minor position. I would not call a position...
  • Commented on Markov Chain Dirty To Me
    Perhaps that will improve as computing power (and sophistication) improves and as data sets grow. IMVHO, it's not just availability of computing power or ability to harvest "raw data" I totes adore the big data approach, but methinks it's worth...
  • Commented on Markov Chain Dirty To Me
    I suppose people like that must exist. In my very limited experience (anecdotal) there aren't many of them even among the offender subpopulation. Do you have reason to believe otherwise? (Not picking a fight, just asking.) Good question! Thing is,...

    "Media" i.e. printed newspaper reports from the 1920's & 1950's of the evil corrupting influence of the Saxophone & Television, respectively. Usually pushed by ignorant, but locally-powerful people & (always) christians. The late & extremely unlamented Mary Whitehouse was one...
  • Commented on Markov Chain Dirty To Me
    The significance of self-reports by perpetrators is generally dubious (in case of vandalism or other crimes) Entirely reasonable for perpetrator to attempt presenting the affair as a matter of reduced "personal" agency ("I just saw it in a movie! I...
  • Commented on Markov Chain Dirty To Me
    (Surprised that you say that the "media effect" is nonsense (by implication, nonsense in general but maybe misreading) but this is probably not the place for that discussion. Also, haven't poked through refs enough yet.) Well, I said "media effect...
  • Commented on Markov Chain Dirty To Me
    Re behavior, you're probably (?) not a regular here and are not used to the theatre/pageantry (and often, very interesting and obscure depths and nuance and hidden jokes, and obtuseness). I just hate to see fights escalate. (blockquote tag is...
  • Commented on Markov Chain Dirty To Me
    Nah. I gave up duelling some time ago. Too heavy on the paperwork. :-( "(Quote is intended to highlight HB's use of language to subtly, and also overtly, reinforce the perceived superiority of the poster in others minds.)" I got...
  • Commented on Markov Chain Dirty To Me
    "During the time-slip, presumably? Of course! I see you have a good taste for duels. Respect!...
  • Commented on Markov Chain Dirty To Me
    Sir, Saruman is one of my favorite Tolkien Characters, and thus I find your implication offensive. I hereby challenge you to a duel over UDP, at dawn, Martian time :-)...
  • Commented on Markov Chain Dirty To Me
    Oops, Bill, something weird happened and prevented link from embedding (I'm pretty sure I copypasted it allright) Here's the Palestinian terror source HB tried to use to prop up her CP claims. http://terrorismanalysts.com/pt/index.php/pot/article/view/73/html...
  • Commented on Markov Chain Dirty To Me
    "Not an expert in the field, but now that the fireworks seem to be over, would like to suggest that a plausible hypothesis regarding the somewhat contradictory findings in mainstream research on the effects of pornography on rates of...
  • Commented on Markov Chain Dirty To Me
    That seems to be all (actually, two INTERPOL links were dead as posted, which I reflected in webcite and archiveis) She also linked a bunch of utterly irrelevant stuff about Russia banning GMO and this somehow allegedly propping up the...
  • Commented on Markov Chain Dirty To Me
    Okay :( Then just noting for the record that Benu tried to use the aforelinked article as a source backing her insinuations that synthetic/artificial CP is harmful (and/or, according to alternate interpretation, noncompetitive versus real one) However, the authors (as...
  • Commented on Markov Chain Dirty To Me
    Dear sir! could you please return Benu's comment where he links this article: https://www.researchgate.net/publication/49644341_Pornography_and_Sex_Crimes_in_the_Czech_Republic It's a good article and it deserves attention, and it's extra-good because Benu posted it...
  • Commented on Markov Chain Dirty To Me
    Oh, swell, a full PDF, thankety-thanks. First thing of notice - the authors don't really make the distinction between "artificial" and "natural" child pron in the study proper, so results can not be used to back your claims regarding alleged...
  • Commented on Markov Chain Dirty To Me
    ============ Sorry, nope. You didn't read any of that material in your 5 minute response time. ============ ============ 41 minute, per posting time. ~2-3 minutes to write the post. Again, you make misleading claims (maximally charitable interpretation) ============ The arctic...

    ============= I'd post PDFs in Russian at this point, but it'd be a bit cruel. ============= ============= Hey, please do - but do remember that Soviet Union does not exist anymore, and GOSTs that may have applied to biological research...
  • Commented on Markov Chain Dirty To Me
    Finally you're posting sources. It is good, progress is being made. Now we can go through the fine papers you provided and see if your sources back your claims well. =========== In October 1989, Dr. Vladimir Pasechnik, the first primary...
  • Commented on Markov Chain Dirty To Me
    ============== Look, two things: #1 You're not as smart as you think. #91/2 are both correct. ============== ============== Oh, broseph, you're grasping at straws here. #91 being correct does not absolve you of the need to back your claim about...
  • Commented on Markov Chain Dirty To Me
    ======== think I actually understand the context here. HB is saying that 20 years ago there was a debate where someone was saying that synthetic CP could drive out the real sort. HB's counter-argument was not that synthetic CP was...
