    I mean in this case I'm being sarcastic/ironic or whatever, because of your "alts are bourgeois" quip. :-p

    But it means what its always meant: An ideology based in maximizing individual liberty and protecting property rights, even in instances where those liberties and where property rights operate to the detriment of society at large, because of an idealist/deontological commitment to a certain set of values which are claimed to be dispositive of human dignity.

    What do you mean by socially progressive?

    I mean probably a liberal, specifically a social liberal. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Social_liberalism One step to the right of social democracy, two steps to the right of democratic socialism.

    But it depends on what you mean by "socially progressive."

    Well if that doesnt get someone in to prison then your legal system is well and truly broken.
    Why would it? The person who received the request probably allegedly was a completely different person than the ones actually wiping the server clean and they can always claim that the message did not reach the tech personnel until a wipe was already done. Classic Rhodesia solution to the problem. And then claim how important it is to do the wipe as voting history and such is extremely sensitive information and not wiping the server is surely a huge privacy risk. Or something. There may be a slap in the wrist for not acting sufficiently quickly to prevent the wipe, or from not communicating clearly, but the end result is just a promise to improve the practices for the next time the court might request such materials.
    Sounds like bullshit to me.

    There are other, better, and more balanced new articles on this.. But this one has an interesting bit of info that others seem to have missed..

    The jury had heard testimony on Friday and Monday from accountant Cynthia Laporta, who described how Manafort and Gates doctored financial statements and backdated loans.

    In questioning Laporta on Monday, a prosecutor asked the accountant about a $US10 million ($A13.5 million) loan purportedly received by Manafort from Russian businessman Oleg Deripaska in 2006.

    Laporta, looking at a summary of loans to Manafort and his businesses, said she could not see any indication that the loan from Deripaska had been paid off.

    an aside to the Gates/Manafort thing,

    "West Virginians serving overseas will be the first in the country to cast federal election ballots using a smartphone app, a move designed to make voting in November's election easier for troops living abroad."

    It's probably going to be a shit-show.

    And whoever is running counter intel is sleeping at their desk. Using university positions is the usual vector to place someone in another country. Are they not watching critical projects (like voting machines)?

    And it's stupid expensive to buy and even more expensive to run. Scrap it!
