    Why oh why do Apple fans keep trying to paint Schmidt’s time on the Apple board as dishonest. The purchase of Android was openly published, and happened almost a full year before he was elected to Apple’s board. He further recused himself from all iPhone, and iOS based discussions, citing a conflict of interest. But no, clearly simply being part of a company that competes with Apple is enough to be considered a “traitor”.

    She should not expect to have her home or life threatened because she talks about women in gaming.

    You have a strange definition of expect. To most people you expect something if you can demonstrate an pattern where in the past similar actions have elicited similar responses.
    So ask yourself this, in the past -
    Has analysis of sexism in games provoked extreme responses, included threats of violence?
    Have women commenting of games in any critical way received threats of violence?
    Have women commenting on sexism in tech received threats of violence?
    When the commenter is a public figure have the threats been more extreme?
    And lastly, were you surprised to hear about the treats against Anita?

    I am explicitly stating that I in no way condone, this behaviour. I think that the culture in which such reactions are expected in abominable, however to equate someone saying that the reaction was expected, to them saying that Anita should have been silent is unfair, and doesn’t help the conversation.

    So you discount the iPad on versatility, not cost?

    Would you at least consider that the issues may be a result of a lack of socialization, rather than an increase? Or at least due to the extreme opposition the bill has faced, and the compromises it has entailed? Large chunks of the western world manage perfectly well with either fully, or partially public heathcare systems, what makes America so unique that such a system is impossible there?
