“Umm, duh. Don't you think individuals who are reading the huffpo, commenting on this article, most likely are gamers don't know this fun fact already. Moreover, given the fact that all chat, private or public is recorded by the gamer might be something that would tend to scare away nafarious individuals. Given the availability of the "dark net" methinks that's more plausible.”

“Just out of curiosity what % of the Iowan population is subject to being "tied up" while home is "ransacked"? Do tell, or please point me to some info that (no offense) isn't your ancedote. Given the fact that most recent FBI data suggests that all burglary in Iowa is approximately 0.5% but since they don't track home invasions methinks it's even less than that for your observation. The point being seems like there's a mitigation of risk that doesn't exist.”

“Just for the record Billy Boy, Santa visits us Secular types on Winter Solstice. He's been doing this for the last 25 years in our house. Moreover, he does this because there are so many more Xtians in the US he has to get a head start. Forturnately, our daughters have carried on this tradition and have spread it to their room mates in college. That's right, us non-believers have an actual holiday that means something real....you know days getting longer, crops being able to grow, more time outside.

Celebrating your mythical being is just ridiculous.”

“Clearly you have not dealt with anyone of significant intelligence. Yes, "god" is a myth, just like the others you mention; just like I point out to people all the time. Seriously, you introspective look at atheism is trite at best, completely inane at worst. What you fail to understand is your belief does not give you any moral ground on which to stand. Allah, Thor, JC, all the other storybook heros are just that storybook heros.”

“I have been in contact with intelligent men and women and I still believe in Jesus Christ.  I do actually know some atheists and do actually have intereseting discussions with them.  My post has done just what I thought as many have commented.  What I will tell yu is that I do not feel that I am any better than anyone else and only hopoe that all could come to know Christ as their Savior.  It is your choice and I will always respect that.”

“First, I did not write the statement but if I am going to wade into this one, if a writer/commentator, because this is hardly a report, chooses to let fly with an offensive descriptive comment which does not go beyond imagination, then I say he has a right to what he writes, whether the reader finds it palatable or not.”

“I would be curious to for you to cite an example.”

Lady Lucifer on Oct 29, 2013 at 06:32:20

“I don't catalog them, but it's fairly easy to catch if you look for it. Take a look at:

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/04/09/mexican-singer-kidnapped-tortured-refusing-to-play-song_n_1412245.html

The first sentence of the sixth paragraph ("Narcocorrido is a type of...") is lifted from Wikipedia; the second sentence ("Corridos have chronicled....") from NPR. Neither source is mentioned anywhere on the page. This is just a small example, but if you look at HP with an editorial eye, you'll find similar and other offenses occurring with insulting frequency.

And don't listen to Chad. HP does call itself a "news aggregator", but this does not give it plagiarism rights when doing supposedly original reporting.”

Chad53916 on Oct 29, 2013 at 06:20:33

“Well, as a news aggregate, you can't really expect different. At least HP usually cites where they get it from.”
