This isn't about the tech, it's about the politics. If I wanted crappy political/social articles, I'd read /.

It's very much tech & privacy. A network of automatic license plate scanners has been installed all across the US. The reasons why has political connotations, but can't be explained without mentioning them.

Besides... the pipe is the place to vote on and discuss what should/shouldn't be here... Problem is, almost no submissions are coming in, which needs to change, first.

Well more folks are gonna have to get out the word, simple as that. I started on Soylent but frankly they are swinging farther left than Slash and when its coming from a socialist commie pinko like me? You KNOW its too damned far left! That is what happens when you end up with a couple of Social Justice Warriors in positions of power, it ALWAYS comes down to political agendas and pushing their beliefs...I swear SJWs are worse than fricking Scientologists! this site seems a lot more like what those of us escaping Slash wanting but there really needs to be more getting out of the word, hell I wouldn't have even known this existed if a Soylent poster wouldn't have mentioned it...maybe somebody should contact the sites beyond and try to get pipe listed?

While I don't have the strength ATM to crank out a bunch of articles (had to have a wisdom tooth extracted via surgery as it was wrapped around a major nerve, needless to say OOOOWWWWW!) what I CAN do to help out Pipedot is let the guys here in on a little secret on having tons of timely articles IF you want this site to be actually about tech as opposed to political BS. Just go to Dailyrotation and Freshnews, these two feeds will give you dozens of timely relevant articles to choose from in everything from science to OSes, hardware to networking, just grab a handful of those and spend 20 minutes whipping up a summary and tada! Instant relevant news. Again I'll be happy to help when I'm not going "OOOOWWWWW son of a bitch!" or being woozy from painkillers but until then it'll be an easy way to keep the line a rolling.
