The old school D&D might have been light gang activity compared to the new breed of RP players out there..this gang of MMORPG players is a few million strong and if you can't do your role in killing whom they choose your gonna be taken out. They have uniform requirements in which each piece of clothing you wear is giving a rating and if your rating isn't high enough then you are relegated to the level dog until it does.
Over and over again the sub-leaders of this massive organization gather together hovering over their computers using long distance communication to bark out orders and requirements which must be complied with or die. When will it end? Who will stop this horrible phenomenon of gang activity?
I'm a 35 year old housewife, who never even finished high school. But over a year ago I realized we were paying way to much for nothing with cable t.v. We cut it off, I hooked a computer to the t.v. and we've been just fine with hulu, netflix, and the occasional Itunes and Amazon purchase ever since. It has saved us a ton of cash and we find we spend less time watching t.v. now and more time in other activities.
No it's not the name brand that's important it's the cost of those particular brands I was alluding too. Which let's face it are more expensive than generic smokes and a bic lighter. The fact is somebody found them and didn't think "Oh well she can obviously afford more" and decide to keep it. They were kind enough to send them back regardless.
I once accidentally left my cigarette case at a bus stop down town. There was a a full pack of Marlboro's in it along with my $20.00 zippo and my identification card and $30.00 in it. 2-3 weeks later I received it in the mail, everything was inside it and there was no return address.
I know it's not the same as having something stolen, but this story reminded me of that.
This indeed seems to be a manipulation of the law. It sounds like the guy was upset his footage & song were used without permission, not that he was trying to silence Moore, whom I'm generally a fan of.
I don't why they aren't but I'll tell you who I would like to sue is Skype, they advertise an unlimited plan which actually is limited. Most people won't see the little fine print when they buy but here is there "Fair Usage Policy"
Calls to phones and mobiles and Skype To Go* calls are included in your subscription subject to a fair usage limit of 10,000 minutes per user per month, with a maximum of 6 hours per day.
But the plan says Unlimited calls* to landline phones worldwide. well that's not really unlimited is it.
LOTRO Subscribers are actually making at out pretty good. If you have a look at this forum post Here
Subscribers & Lifetime subscibers get to keep everything they already have plus we get free content updates, as well as 500 points a month to spend in the turbine store for free. Lifetimer's get it without having to pay the monthly subsciption free essentially LOTRO is paying them 500 turbine points a month to play a game they already play. Pretty sweet if you ask me.
As far as LOTRO dying it's actually doing quit well Turbine already had this in the works before WB bought them.The acquisition just went through & The beta starts on the 16th you don't develop a beta client in a matter of a months time.
Also you might wanna check out the interview with turbine Here
I don't know Mike I think your wrong about it not having a lasting effect. I know I sure haven't forgotten about Google refusing to hand over information, when both yahoo and MSN just rolled over. It was then that I decided to drop both MSN & Yahoo.
I very much prefer doing business with a company that doesn't just hand everything over as opposed to one who does.
And how does this outdo my subscription with netflix?
Netflix cost less and lets me get copies of a movie at home, plus I have the added bonus of Netflix on demand. Believe me I learned a long time ago the hard way that anything with best buys name attached is something you should stay far away from.
I don't see how they can actually charge the charge the guy, talking about suicide isn't a crime. Especially considering that the people who died didn't even live anywhere close to him.
Is the guy a doctor? if so then that holds a whole other stigma I guess, but if it's just some random person who decided to tell people how they could accomplish a goal they already had in mind, whether one agrees to it or not, seems a bit like stretching the law to fit the circumstances to me.
I don't understand this, when Techdirt had the article about WB wanting us to wait a month for their releases a bunch of commenter's were irritated by this, saying how retarded WB is and how they will just wait until the movie comes out they still aren't going to buy. Here's somebody irritated enough about it to actually try taking to them to court and all I see are comments stating that somebody is just looking for some action. TBH we should all be rooting this guy on and maybe even helping out in the hopes that we can put an end to this nonsense, chances are it won't work anyway but You don't know unless you try right?
