And in news we have only just received, there was a rockslide at the Mount Rushmore National Memorial a week ago, with the result that George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Abraham Lincoln no longer appear on either side of Theodore Roosevelt. This shocking event, which occurred on June 2... *innocent face*
Okay, I'll buy a wood chipper so the good people at Reason can feed DOJ bods into it. Where should I send it, and how much do you think it would cost me to send something so big and heavy via Royal Mail?
Re: Re: When Microsoft stops using mega-DRM, I'll believe that it doesn't work.
Actually, the games were successful because they don't have DRM. So many people (justifiably) want games to be plug and play, and DRM-ridden games are very often the opposite. So when The Witcher had DRM patched out and its sequels didn't have any, customers were naturally happy to them because they were guaranteed to install correctly, amongst other things that DRM prevents.
The fact is that the U.S. government and the DOJ committed very serious crimes, and a hell of a lot of people all over the world believe that they should own up to them. And that’s why I believe that the NSA should be charged with war crimes in the United States where they will face due process, and they'll have the opportunity -- if they dare face the justice of the United States -- to make that case in a court of law. But obviously my view on this is that they committed and are accused of very serious crimes. Just sayin'.
Being extremely thirsty one day, I went to my local shop and took a bottle of Mountain Dew, then opened it and drank from it. I had the entire bottle finished by the time I paid. I suppose in your eyes that I committed a crime just like Egor Homakov because I consumed a product and only yhen paid for it. You'd best not eat at any restaurants if that's your thinking; they operate that way all the time.
The lack of details leaves the door open for abuse. So why not fight fire with fire? Any time you film police interactions that get cop blocked, edit the footage to add in the sound effect of a nightstick impacting on a human body. How long do think it would take for Dallas PD personnel to follow the spirit as well as the letter of the law if everyone began doing that?
