A pirate radio station has been running in my neighborhood for over 4 years, running on the only quiet FM frequency and making my car Bluetooth/FM adapter useless in my neighborhood. The FCC knows about it and has done nothing. It seems they care more about doling out fines for showing nipples and saying bad words than performing their original mandate.

What we saw was that players were having such a good time they didn't want to leave the game, which kept our servers packed and made it difficult for new players to join.

Blame it on the players. Genius. "It's not our fault our game doesn't work, it's YOUR fault!"

So when your Wii breaks (and judging by the 2 that broke on my kids, it WILL break) you have to re-purchase all of your downloaded games? That's just bullshit.

If you send it to Nintendo for repair and you didn't modify the system, they will transfer your downloaded content to the replacement. At least that's how they did it when I worked as a Nintendo service rep about 2 years ago.

I wouldn't use another LG phone if you paid me, not even a Nexus. They just don't get software or support.

which is why i like to stick to carrier-firmware-free nexus fones. you're not dependent on the lazy carriers to approve the new firmware each and every time it comes out as long as there's a version for your specific hardware.

Anyone who is savvy gets a Nexus phone. There are millions of others who get suckered by some failed used car salesman at a mall kiosk into committing to some pile of shit that will launch with an outdated version and never get an update. Or, if they are especially unlucky, they will get an update which ends up causing more problems than it fixes.

Apparently you were confused by the term "men". You are thinking of the term "pansies".

Let me clue you in. Men don't cry over someone flirting with them. Pansies, such as yourself, do. If the worst thing to ever happen to me at work was the gay boss hit on me, I'd consider myself lucky. I wonder if any of you feminists have jobs that don't involve promoting some kind of bullshit "awareness". Bet you've never done a days work in your life.

WA WA WEE WA, YOU A REAL MAN, YES? HIGH FIVE!

@ Orogogus

What isn't clear to me is if the behavior continued after the woman made it clear it was unwanted and considered inappropriate. That is what would constitute illegal harassment as far as I understand the law. As the lawyer explained, it only becomes illegal after it continues past the notification.

See paragraph 76 of the Complaint and Summons linked in the article. It says she complained "throughout the course of her employment". Whether or not that is true will come out in the case, but fabricating claims is a pretty serious deal and any halfway decent lawyer wouldn't allow it, so I'd be surprised if it was false. Also paragraph 85 describes a harassing comment made after the email was sent. It also continues in paragraph 88.

Uh, I believe he owns the company.

As an aside, I wonder what people would think about this presented from a different perspective. Reverse the genders, and now tell me what guy would be crying over their multi-millionare female boss flirting with them...

(I'm assuming he is a multi-millionare, I don't know his actual worth. Someone in the know can enlighten me here.)

If it is unwanted, it is harassment, no matter what genders are involved.

Pretty sure just about every labor company hiring illegal mexicans beat you to the punch there. Oh sorry, you were trying to be witty. Guess you weren't aware that there is a world outside. Oh, and guess you weren't aware that that there is a world outside of the US, as well. Enjoy living in your little bubble. Minimum wage, hah.

Pretty sure your grandma would slap the shit out of you for crying over someone sending you a sex quiz link compared to some of the stuff she probably endured and didn't complain about. Grow a pair.

I'm going to hire someone and pay them less than minimum wage. Then when they complain, I'm going to tell them "oh boohoo, we used to have slaves here. Be glad you are getting paid anything." Wow, I can't believe nobody has thought of this before! I'll save so much money!

Everything is part of culture, if you exclude the trash, you are just setting yourself up for future trash,, because if no bad examples of past exist, how do you think people in 50 years will know how NOT to make identical trash all over again?

People don't produce trash because they don't know any better. They produce it because it sells. Pop culture is 99% worthless crap because the sole purpose of it is to make money, and to do that you pander to the lowest common denominator.

Most people that rag on IE do because it's cool to rag on MS. I have no use for that sort of hipster douchebag mentality.

Actually most people that rag on IE8 and previous do so because they are shitty browsers that were obsolete before they were even released and set back the progress of web technologies by several years. IE10 is actually a good browser and you won't hear me hate on it at all. But hey, enjoy the company of all the 60-year-olds running eMachines browsing the web as if it was still 2006.

Most people use IE8. Between blocking 3rd party cookies and using the private browser I don't need another browser. And I actually prefer it over other browsers. IE9 sucks though, and I hear 10 is even worse. Firefox is ok but awkward and Chrome is just horribly clumsy and ugly.

pffhfhahahahahaha

Who the fuck doesn't support IE8?

A better question is, who the fuck still uses IE8 in 2012?

https://www.google.com/chrome
http://www.opera.com

Take your pick.
