Re: Debates on Discord?

And I think I have better things to do with my free time than trying to convince some random person on-line to go vegan or vegetarian. Convincing some influential linguist that my linguistic theories are true would mean a lot more to me, and I think I have better chance at succeeding at that. That ...

Re: Debates on Discord?

In my experience, trying to debate veganism on-line is futile, you won't convince anybody even after years of trying. How do you know that? Many people simply like to argue even though you may already have installed a seed of doubt (about eating meat/dairy) in their minds. Either way, if you only c...

Re: Debates on Discord?

Anybody? In my experience, trying to debate veganism on-line is futile, you won't convince anybody even after years of trying. Anyone who responds to you is likely very delusional, and has apparently spent years studying nonsensical apologetics. People are simply dishonest with themselves, there is...

Re: Climate Change Script; Need Some Pointers

Teo's idea is good, focusing on the harms of pseudoscience, and talking about the consequences of doing nothing about climate change if it's true and if we can afford that gamble (for people on the fence). Then cover the evidence. Anyway, what do you think about this article I've written? Can it be...

Re: TOR browser

You can just write them down on physical paper (or at least half of them) then reuse the other half. The chance of somebody getting that paper is very small. Well, it's very convenient to be able to log into various Internet services from the university computers. And the chances of somebody gettin...

Re: TOR browser

However, any encryption *can* ultimately be broken by quantum computation if you know part of the data being transferred Is there some efficient quantum computing algorithm for breaking obfs4? I am not aware of that. Quantum computing is good at prime factorization, on which HTTPS relies. Obfs4 rel...

Re: TOR browser

Of course, IP address provides limited information, but if it's a site you don't trust TOR or another proxy can make a lot of sense. It's not just the IP. TOR also prevents sites from identifying the repeated user using cookies, and, perhaps more importantly, by downloading external JavaScript from...

Re: Carnism as compared to Statism

His praising of Nicaragua was more to direct criticism towards the policies of other countries (such as the USA) than to state that he agrees with communism. What policies of the USA? At best, you can say he criticized the *lack* of policies. therefore it's completely inaccurate to state that he wa...

Re: TOR browser

And, what do you think, is the obfs4 protocol in and of itself actually way more secure than HTTPS is? As far as I understand it, somebody who has intercepted your HTTPS message can actually decipher your message, it's just that would take about 50 years for a modern computer to do that, because it ...

Re: Carnism as compared to Statism

He was talking about Nicaragua, not the Soviet Union. What difference does that make? As far as I can see, he was talking about both. Besides, his comment was more to criticise the policies of the United States rather than to praise Nicaragua. Er... no, see his quote. No he wasn't. He lost the 1932...
