Interpol has a top level arrest warrant for Assange from Sweden. The last one of those issued was for a serial child sex offender, and Assange is accused with what? Possible deception of the degree of contraception used? If guilty, he's certainly a bit of a shit, but an internmational criminal? Exceedingly suspect.

And deserves to die? Take a trip to Iran, this is the Western world, we don't do that.

It depends how somebody defines "evil", but there are certainly many bad human beings.

An innocent and honourable man would have faced his accusers in court. I doubt Assange is either.

For having consensual sex without a condom? Give me a break.

People should be treated as they treat others. If Assange thinks that some people deserve to die, then I don't see any problems with other people thinking that he deserves to die.

And I have no intentions of ever visiting Iran or any other primitive and barbaric, backwards countries.

That's what the rapist claims. Why do you take his word over the word of two women?

We shall see what happens when the case gets tried. Some people here are going to look mighty foolish for having been duped and supporting a serial rapist and molester.

Sometimes maturity is relative.

I am a highly evolved human being, though certain people who have not yet reached that level of maturity sometimes do take offense to people who dare to think differently and people who are not afraid of telling it like it is.

You just proved my point. If it was something as simple as that, and if it was consensual, you'd think he'd want his day in court to clear his name. I know I certainly would.

But instead he hides behind the legal system of my country, doing everything in his power to evade the Swedish authorities.

State your sources. List specifics. Give examples. Support your statements. Otherwise, it's just catastrophizing in the form of unsubstantited generalizing that smacks of self-referencing journalism.

Well, there are similarities between adolescent political passion and old aged fearful ranting. Each will spew forth nonsense (usually alarmist paranoia), arms flailing, whilst provoking nothing more than a shrug and head shake.

The fact that he only mentioned the iPhone and Blackberry on this makes me say one thing: false. Could and should have said smartphone don't you think? So F U Assange

Who's going to believe that guy over the word of two separate women?

Two women who accused Julian Assange of rape and sexual assault are "relieved" by a London court ruling Wednesday ordering the WikiLeaks founder's extradition to Sweden for questioning, their lawyer said.

He told them he wanted to show them the iTunes backdoor....

He said he's still in school in another thread- whether it be college or high school, it doesn't matter, because all kids are idiots.

Oh to be 18 again... When I knew everything about everything. I've gotten dumber and my dad has gotten smarter as I've aged.

All I can say is, if anybody finds what I write or contribute to this forum to be a waste of time, then they are more than welcome to put me on ignore and that should solve their problems.

I'm not going to change who I am, so people whining about me are going to find out that it is an exercise in futility.

Wrong. You are either mistaken or you are lying.

I have never revealed my age on this forum and I find it quite amusing to see people speculate.

I must've been mistaken. I though I saw you say something about a professor of yours, but I guess not.

I would think if I were you, I'd reflect in the mirror that people think you're childish. I, like you most likely, don't take a ton of stock on what others think- but if everyone thinks you act immature, maybe you do, and that's something you'd want to change. But of course- if you are immature, then you don't care at all about others opinions.

The amount of idiocy and sheer misinformed hatred against assange is staggering...
post #71 of 105
Assange is a fantasist. He had claimed he was going to release all this information that would take down a US bank and the deadline for that came and went without a single bit of proof. He talks garbage and until he can show the proof of what he claims, he should be regarded as little more than a crackpot.

He's a hero. And people are too stupid and brainwashed and frightened to see it. Especially my fellow Americans.

He is an individual with a seriously misplace Messiah Complex. The sad thing is, it seams, some of my fellow Americans are too blinded into worthless paranoia by conspiracy theories to see it.

The truth is I never heard of this guy before today's article. He could be a total bad guy. I don't know. I thought I read that this Swedish version of the rape charge was based on not using a condom and he was cleared of what we would actually consider rape because the sex was consensual. As to the "clear his name," maybe he feels he'd never get a fair trial from a court that would bring such a charge. I know I would not want to face a court such as that, and if I had lots of money I probably would fly the coup too. The real story is in the OBJECTIVE facts.

You could be an idealistic young adult. We all were that way once too. So we know how that defies diplomacy and self-control in dealing with others. Having the security of the Internet forum makes the lack of constraint in what one would say worse. If so, you will conform soon enough. Probably when you are charged with bring up the next generation.

Then again you could be several 16 year-olds having a good laugh. If so, It is working judging by the responses.

In any respect, I wouldn't consider myself highly evolved with such trash spewing out of my mouth.

Assange makes it sound like iTunes is just sending the contents of your computer to some hidden government base.

it's not.

The flaw was merely that iTunes had no system of checking the source of a software update as legit and thus agencies could use it a trojan cover to get someone they wanted to monitor to install software that gave them a back door into the computer in question. Social engineering at its finest and stoppable 9 times out of 10 with some common sense. Like if you get a pop up that says that there's a new update for anything and you didn't just turn it on or hit "check for updates" or at least have it running in the background, be suspect. Whether it's iTunes, Flash or something else

And according to reports, Apple fixed this weeks ago

You are essentially correct. Rape, like Murder, is a very specific legal term and in that sense, no he did not rape those women.

That said, in Sweden if you have sex with a woman and you don't tell her that you aren't using a condom that's still considered sexual assault. A lot of this case is he said, they said. He said he told them he didn't have any condoms and they were basically "whatever lets do this" and they came he never said a word. But neither is likely to be able to prove their side. Unless the punishment for this level of crime is life in jail or your penis being removed, most men would go and state their side with a very sincere "I thought she understood, it seems she didn't and for that I am sorry. I'm happy to pay if she wants to be tested for any STDs etc" and take the probation, the getting kicked out of the country or whatever. But Mr Assange likes to make himself into a martyr so it is no shock he's doing things this way
