Remember, this is Ubisoft, so Uplay is installed. Plus, in many cases Steam. The update was a DAY ONE download. This means it came down immediately after the game was installed, so saying that the user couldn't connect to the internet for some reason doesn't really work. And if the user couldn't get to the internet for the update, how did they get to the forum?
If a company makes a forum, do you believe they have an obligation to help people who have not paid for the game?
"There's lots of information law enforcement would like to have, and even may legally have the right to have, but which they cannot have. And that's been true throughout history, and law enforcement has survived and crimes have been stopped and criminals caught and prosecuted."
Best, truest thing I've read on the internet today.
That just sounds so wrong on its face. Patented seed...
I'm pretty sure that just those two words make Monsanto the most evil company in the world. Because they weren't making enough money selling bug spray. They had to own the rights to food, too. Who wants to bet they're working on "patented water"?
You see, this is the sort of ignorance I have to deal with everyday
Does it pay well? If you "have to deal" with "this sort of ignorance" "every day" it sounds like a job to me. Why not step out and tell us about it instead of posting as an anonymous coward. Are they hiring? I'm pretty sure I can suppress my morals and be a paid troll if the money's right.
Do you have any other accounts besides Monsanto, or do they keep you busy enough putting out fires on the internet?
Monsanto is also attacking democracy. Read this little story about one small Oregon county, home to a growing and profitable organic farming industry, that wants to ban GMO planting just in their own community. This is a small, rural place and Monsanto has already spent a million dollars trying to defeat this incentive.
I suppose you don't care about multi-national corporations buying local elections, either. They've got their product in the ground from coast-to-coast, but they just can't countenance that there's one little place that wants to decide for themselves.
Tell that to the neighboring organic farmer who's crop has been pollinated by Monsanto's "better living through chemistry" seeds and end up having to destroy their entire yield unless they want to pay Monsanto's license fees for a product they didn't even want.
Not even bugs want to eat Monsanto crops, and bugs'll eat anything. And you really, really don't want a company owning the rights to food. If you can't see what a bad idea that is, then you're a little dizzy.
Nah. The US has been doing stupid stuff in regard to Cuba for more than half a century.
Remember trying to assassinate Castro by sending him exploding cigars? Or trying to make his beard fall out?
Seriously. For the US, Cuba is like that one old girlfriend, who isn't even all that hot, who can push your buttons to the point that if you run into her at a coffee shop, within 48 hours you'll end up faced down naked on her front lawn crying your eyes out. Drunk and pleading with her to come back to you or you'll jump in front of a speeding semi.
Comic relief? After all, what's funnier than a bunch of grown men in short pants running around throwing themselves to the ground writhing in pain every time an opposing player looks at them funny?
Americans just let you Europeans call your little game "football" because we get such a big laugh every time we hear you say it. Europeans will say, "We're watching football" while on the screen there's a bunch of Madonna's backup dancers prancing around kicking a little ball back and forth while the people in the stadium tear each other apart like jackals. Just hysterical.
