To all the people who want /v/jailbait banned, why don't you also want subs that feature homosexual porn banned also? submitted by MGHOW to AskVoat

I think our terminology should distinguish between these two types of media.

Kind of like putting a dude who was taking a piss in public while wasted on a "Sex Offender Registry"

Regarding questionable content submitted by Atko to announcements

gilbertsmith 1 points 14 points (+15|-1) ago

Atko is doing us all a favour by running this place. It's more than enough work just fixing bugs and trying to improve the site itself, without having to worry about whatever daily crisis pops up (EuroHost, PayPal, etc). He doesn't deserve to have to put up with this kind of crap.

Eventually, subverses like those will attract law enforcement. It's not just porn, I imagine before long the admins will have to pull the plug on piracy subverses as well. And I'm OK with that. I don't want this to be some Pirate Bay type of site where it gets shut down every few months and pops up on a new domain. If the price of that is no child porn, borderline child porn, pirated material or other illegal things, I'm OK with it.

Microsoft is giving away Windows 10 to anyone who tests it. (not just for people who own 8.1 or 7 anymore) submitted by BlurryScreen to technology

Windows Store.

Apple did this too. OS X Leopard was the last one, retailing for $129. Then Snow Leopard came out, and featured the App Store. Apple made it super cheap, $29. Why? Because more people would upgrade to Snow Leopard, and get the App Store, and start buying stuff off it, which Apple got a cut of. Eventually they stopped charging at all, and the last few OS X releases have been completely free.

Now Microsoft is trying to get in on that. Windows 8 had the Windows Store, but people preferred 7 over 8, didn't want to pay to upgrade, had a fine computer running 7, etc. So now they make Windows 10 (which everyone is expecting to be the new Windows 7 and be awesome) free. Now everyone running 7 or 8 should hop onboard the Windows 10 train for free, have a Windows Store, and start buying apps from it. Microsoft gets a cut of it.

That's the theory anyways. If it's anything like the Windows Phone store, there'll be nothing on it but garbage and no one will bother with it.

This is as stupid as when they killed off Archie by having him take a bullet for his gay friend.
