Censorship has become a serious issue, and not only in the media. As a community, we are heavily influenced by the media and other sources of information- however, we tend to overlook the fact that there is not only much bias but also skewed perceptions of events and reports in the news today. The media does a poor job portraying things as they really are in order to follow a sort of convention and to keep their show on air or their papers in stores. As a result, most of the time we are being fe...

Abortion...

If people are so against the death penalty and killing animals...why is it right to kill an unborn child? No you haven't see the baby but if your pregnant it's a HUMAN CHILD!!!! Why kill an innocent thing and think that's perfectly fine when we are so against killing animals and etc...I'm sorry the only one way for me to even possibly CONSIDER (not saying yes) would be if someone was raped that's it. So tell me why it's ok to kill a little baby?...

Hacktivism does more good than harm

awesomeness
Zulske

RESOLVED: Computer hacktivism does more good than harm. Before I present our main arguments I'd like to provide a proper framework for today's debate. DEFINITION: Hacktivism First, it's crucial that I will define the most important term in today's topic, "hacktivism." Hacktivism is a combination of the words "hack" and "activism," however, it is extremely important to remember that the word "hacktivism" is different in both meaning and spirit than the word "hack/hacking." Voters, please do...

"Yay Osama's dead" I have been seeing a lot of this knidove thing on social networks and the news stations that I watch and even calls to pull out of places like Afghanistan in the wake of this unfortunately, we're not there to kill one person. Whether you believe that we are there for oil, to find WMDs, to stamp out terrorism, to fight a fight that was brought to our shores as the US president said, to bright stability to the region or just to control it. I think we can all agree that killing O...
