    2016 USA Presidential Elections

    One of the reasons I've refrained from mocking during the U.S. election. Glass houses and all that.

    2016 USA Presidential Elections

    I look forward to the nightly news casts signing off with a "Look at the stupid thing the U.S. president said/did today." items that they always used to do during the Bush Jnr. era. I've missed them under Obama. Things are about to get interesting again.

    In what Top Gear episode did the convertible split in half?

    It didn't. That's just something Clarkson did at home. Though in the last episode of season 9 they make stretch limos and I think Clarksons splits in half.

    Ex-BBC boss admits firing Clarkson was a dumb mistake.

    Their mistake was thinking they could just replace the trio and carry on like normal. I'm not sure if that was stupidity or pure arrogance. I lean toward the latter.

    Things they will not be allowed to do anymore because of legal reasons.

    This is a good thing. The running jokes were tired as hell.

    2016 USA Presidential Elections

    Therefore a Hitler style president would be worse for me than a Stalin style president.

    2016 USA Presidential Elections

    So it's purely a numbers game? I'm probably being naive but I think Hitler's ideology and attempts at world domination were worse.

    Is there anybody here who, given that choice and only that choice, wouldn't vote Stalin?

    Officially remove the letters "I" and "S" from all world dictionaries. That'll learn 'em!

    2016 USA Presidential Elections

    I'm not interested in conspiracy theories either. It was just an example of personal information that could be used nefariously. I think you already knew that though. :) This is obviously going nowhere so we're going to have to agree to disagree. Though, as for people trying to hack Trump...

    Or the location of someone, her schedule for example, which could be used in an assassination attempt. They're unwilling to accept that it's valid to be both personal and a national security issue because it's Clinton. TC keeps mentioning the distinction in law without acknowledging that she's a...

    2016 USA Presidential Elections

    Yes. But the targeting of a presidential candidate for hacking makes it a national security issue and not a personal one. If you see what I mean.

    I wasn't arguing that she isn't an idiot nor that she isn't responsible for the lapse of security. I was simply saying that it's a security issue regardless of how sensitive or insensitive the information contained within is. Saying it was only personal information and then saying that it's a...

    You seem locked in to the idea that it's only a security issue if the information obtained was classified.

    2016 USA Presidential Elections

    I don't find those two things contradictory. It is a national security issue if a foreign country, or nationals of a foreign country, hack the private email server(s) of a presidential candidate from another country. The content only really determines the severity. Even if all they found was a...
