    I'd like to start a new meme: "No means no" is a misnomer. It should be "Only 'Yes' means yes." Just because someone doesn't say "No" doesn't mean they've given consent. If she didn't say "Yes", there is no consent.

      I found it disturbing to see people on MY side spewing such bullshit nonsense about DOS attacks last week.

      If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the precipitate.

        I knew it was an overwhelmed system. I also knew that it would have growing pains.

        But then, I used to do it for a living, and knew it would stumble. I also realize it will get better. There are still more than 2 months to get signed up for those needing a policy Jan. 1. And for those who are just going to get one because they're required to do so, they have until March.

          Capacity planning, building for scalability, and performance testing should have been done... particularly for the amount of money that was spent on the website. CGI should never get a government contract ever again after the piss-poor job they did on this. I would expect a few bugs and glitches on a new application, but nothing of this magnitude.

          If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the precipitate.

          •  Sure. I agree with you on that. (2+ / 0-)

            But that's what you get when you contract it out privately.
