    NCOP approves Cybercrimes Bill alongside two others

    If I understand correctly this is the one which is largely duplicated in other legislation and considered mostly unenforceable. Also with a bunch of sketchy stuff relating to sharing things which will mostly not hold up in court if challenged. Wonder what changed to make it "acceptable" now.

    Didn't say it wasn't a process but somewhere someone came up with the main idea. "Think we'll just have to agree to disagree." And this is my point. Two camps who just think differently instead of one being right and the other wrong so they'll never agree. The only solution is a compromise but...

    This is my point. They didn't bet on feature phones but chose to stay with feature phones when the world was heading in a different direction. They couldn't manage to come up with a version for smartphones. When I say ideas I don't mean simple things like let's use this algorithm instead of...

    It's not an objective field you can quantify like that, why the 50/50 is the default. The problem with the "execution" people is that they forget where they would be without ideas.

    Lockdown regulations declared invalid and unconstitutional by high court

    LOL, it's not a misconception. This is the age old debate of ideas vs invention. One contends that inventions are everything while the other contends that nothing can happen without an idea. I'd put it 50/50. The only people who think ideas are worthless are the ones who've never had any ideas.
