3Pax Dickinson was fired for gross, sustained offensiveness on the company dime. This has made it difficult for him to get venture capital. He writes on a neoreactionary blog asking that people check their non-asshole privilege and stop discriminating against people just expressing themselves. He is, of course, a libertarian.

-8For when TempleOS just doesn't cut it: Cre@tion of civilization, the "Stolen Fire"... actually language. Modern Computing (an Oracle?) showing the light of the superuser, Periodic Table prescient knowledge, and/er the light of "soligion." Re-reading eX odus from Linux to right (before 9/11).

51Fox News pundits strike again, telling their US audience that the English city of Birmingham is exclusively Muslim and is a no-go area for non-Muslims, and that Muslim religious police in parts of London use violence to enforce Islamic dress.
