Ignoring a game or forgetting it's existence is a ridiculous statement.
Why? You pirate or purchase every single game that is released? Talking about a game gives it attention and spreads word of mouth, whether negative or positive. Downloading a game shows interest, publishers aren't dumb and they hired companies who track this long ago. Buying the game supports their aim with DRM. Pirating the game reinforces their belief that DRM is helpful. Ignoring the game completely hurts them a lot more than anything else you do. Bitching on messageboards about DRM doesn't really seem to helping does it?
Jerykk, I don't really have the energy today for a long circular debate and I find you an uncompromising poster who is unwilling to ever concede anything so you win, enjoy the spoils of victory. I will say that while I am warming to your view of personal piracy as a consumer but as usual you push it to the extreme.
