And for the record, I support Puerto Rico becoming a state this November, Guyana petitioning for statehood (since they do seem to want it), Taiwan petitioning for statehood (since some want it and the US has the only legally-recognized international claim on the island), and Cuba petitioning for statehood (should their government fail them).

 

Oh, wait… lol.gif

See, that's exactly what you want; you want either everyone to be corrupt or no one to be. Otherwise it's not fair.

While the people questioning the UK judge's decision may well be wrong, they did wait for the decision.

 

You are prejudging the process based on the location of the trial.

 

And don't worry - once the jurors find out about Sir Jonathan Ive's association with Apple, I'm sure our centuries of hatred towards your country will overcome any Apple home court advantage.

You obviously know nothing of juror selection process.

[1] THE MATERIAL WAS NOT OBSCENE.



[2] THE ALBERT HALL HAD, IN FACT, BREACHED ITS CONTRACT. But



[3] AS THE ALBERT HALL IS A ROYAL INSTITUTION, IT WOULD BE IMPROPER FOR AN AMERICAN MUSICIAN TO PREVAIL IN A CASE LIKE THIS

How come Fredaroony gets banned but Shaun is still around? The last few weeks he has been doing nothing but spewing venom. I'd think his little outbursts are just ways of begging to be banned, but the moderators are having a little fun letting him make a complete joke of himself before he is put out of the pasture.

 

Then, of course, in true Hindu tradition, he will re-incarnate with a different avatar.

 

The relationship between AI and these trolls is like Cloud Atlas.

Why should Shaun be "careful"? He has a valid point.

If you think the British Judge is corrupt who is to say that the American Judge is not also corrupt.

 

Is that pommie judge a Chelsea FC fan?

 

Who sponsors Chelsea?

 

I wonder if there could be a link.

In another thread, it was stated that the British judge was a Chelsea fan. That does not, of course, establish that his decision was biased.

I was asleep. I don't sit on here 24 hours a day. I can't be bothered to debate it with you. Let's say you're right and I'm wrong. Happy now?

Banned for simply expressing a different point of view? If that's the case then so be it.

You can't just insinuate favoritism willy-nilly. His presentation borders on nationalism.

The mods here do post just like everyone else. The tone of his posts hasn't changed from what it was prior to becoming a mod. Why do you feel the need to associate a moderator's personal opinion with something official? It's not like they would ban you for disagreeing.

I was angry after all the personal attacks. Feel free to put me on ignore if that offends you.

You should try reading some your own posts. Once again if this offends you please just put me on ignore.

I pity the jurors. Imagine sitting through weeks of a trial full of arcane tech details. *shivers* Patent matters shouldn't be settled by jury trials—the issues are too complex for non-experts and take so much time being chosen for the jury is a serious penalty.

I'd love it! I'd pay for a front row seat. Do the bailiffs bring you popcorn?

And since this site is obviously under the authority of the EU, we have a few months to censor that before we're punished. lol.gif


Presiding Judge Lucy Koh also presented her own questions, asking whether jurors knew any Apple or Samsung employees, read any books about the parties, owned stock in either company or had strong feelings about the case which has received fairly wide coverage in the mainstream media.

 

Now, were these her own questions in that Apple and Samsung hadn't asked them themselves? How did they not think to ask something so simple? Because in the juror pool, there WERE Google and Apple employees, stockholders, and relations. Is this saying that had the judge not asked these blindingly obvious questions, they would have made it onto the jury?!
