re: /pol/ thread and beyond (++, 4/10/20) Unraveling Threads of Everything Thread - kingbob
During the cold war, a honeypot was typically an attractive female spy who was tasked with seducing a target in order to either extract information from them or put them into a compromising situation for blackmail purposes. It would make sense for Hugh Hefner to be a CIA agent using his mansion as a...

[quote]A. serve the entire population in a given area ISPs have to do this? [/quote] As I said before, they sorta do, but sorta don't. Because they're not utilities, they get to skirt serving everyone completely and instead get to shoot for B.S. metrics and benchmarks. Basically, the i...

[quote]Cartels are simply the outgrowth of the limitations of the classical definition of a "monopoly." We sanction monopolies because they restraint the free markets.

The pro-Trump shill in this Thread is the 100% flip-side of the coin, accusing anyone who disagrees with his idiotic stance. Centinal assumes everyone is disagreeing with him because they're paid Reddit trolls. If he managed to read this board and get to know the posters, they would see that many ...

Exactly. You can run your rural home off of a windfarm and solar (you might lose power in the middle of the night when the wind is calm and it will be expensive as all get out to set up) while getting your water from a well, but you have to go through an ISP or wireless provider (Verizon and AT&T ...
