domestic dissent

LJ links, Wal-Mart, and the Supreme Court suck today.

What is up with LJ today? I keep seeing links like this that fail to open comment pages or links: http://api.viglink.com/api/click?format=go&drKey=1111&loc=http (and then the link address).

Speaking of being pissed off at authority, did you hear that the Supreme Court threw out the Wal-Mart discrimination case - not because of merit or lack thereof, but because the "class-action status – potentially involving hundreds of thousands of female workers – was too large."

Um, isn't that what a class-action suit is all about? Largeness? With this precedent, I can see corporations planning to market crappy or dangerous products simply marketing it far and wide enough that they can't get sued.

Fuck the Supreme Court. Also:
