K, so even if they don't abuse the information (laughable claim), what exactly makes them think that other people won't get ahold of it and abuse it? The DHS doesn't have a good enough reputation when it comes to...anything...for me to believe that there won't be a cablegate-like leak. 10 million people probably just fired up a new version of LOIC...
Time for the Federal government to step in and make it a national requirement that all police/peace officers must wear, during all on-duty time, big dorky-ass hats with video cameras in them. The big ones, from the 90s, VHS. And they can't be shut off. And if the lens is covered, the officers stun gun will zap them and make them go "GURHKTTTPPPFFFF!" and fall over.
Whether or not it's the area in which they do the most suing, having lawyers give testimony on the search industry is like me writing a story on my dogs opinions on the current state of research in the field of particle physics. Yeah, they went to college. Yeah, they work a lot. Yeah, they generate a lot of paper. None of that means they know what in the fuck they're talking about.
I have a friend who is a writer. Several of the characters from his stories have their own Facebook pages. A few of the names aren't...well, the characters are from different planets, therefore their names are absolutely fake. So who goes to jail, there?
Our government is out of control. We need to hit the reset (commence fire) button.
I'm a very casual gamer, don't play many games and the ones that I do play, I don't play very much. The games I play usually "come to me," meaning they're usually from big companies and are advertised to death so I know they exist without trying to know they exist, nah'da mean? Also, 99% of those games are pirated by me. Fuck Activision. Anyway...
I played the pirate-hat release of this game and even though I probably won't play it too much, I intend to purchase this game. With money. Because of the pirate hats. When a company says "Hey Jeff, try this game, we customized a demo for you and your pals," I'll probably be interested in that company surviving.
When a company says "Hey Jeff, buy this game without trying it. If you try to try it before buying it, you're going to get your dick sued off. We'll probably sue your little sister too, just for the hell of it" ...well, that company can fuckin' tank, for all I care.
