Well to me there's a difference between being bullied at school, where the law says you have to be if your a teen, and being bullied on a site that you can voluntarily sign up for and leave as you please. I have a hard time understanding why anyone, young or old, would opt to allow themselves to be harassed and badgered instead of just leaving a place like Secret. School is another matter - the children don't have a choice whether or not to go.

This is a "peanut butter not crunchy enough" lawsuit.


I never heard it quite put that way, but yeah, this lawsuit is garbage.

I've been saying this for a while now. So much of videogaming history will be lost to the ages because of dying hardware and more recently online server requirements. There are ways around a lot of these things but in 25 years will anyone be able to find a playable version of Diablo 2? Maybe, but the real question is will anyone be able to find a playable version of Diablo 3? Whether or not someone 25 years from now would want to play such ancient games (by future standards) isn't the point - this is our gaming HISTORY. Nobody values the Liberty Bell based on well it rings, nor do they judge the value of the USS Missouri based on how it could perform in a modern-day sea battle.

That's the danger with the indie bundles. There are just so many of them and most people are only going to pay the minimum if that's all that they are required to. It's pretty shifty of them to reneg on a promise like that though. It doesn't bode well for their future.

It's not that you can actually get dumber by reading something.

Sometimes it feels that way though...

I had two people on my ignore list for a time, but I since emptied the list. It's not like you can't see what they say when people quote them anyway. I try to ignore the idiocy but it's more convenient if you never have to be exposed to it in the first place. Mostly I try to get along with everyone now.

Certain people will say things that will make gy head spin but that's just the internet; it's unlikely that they are the same in real life.

The multiplayer in this game is a min-maxer player's wet dream, and a nightmare to people like me who just want to enjoy the experience. So I played the first game 99% in single player and loved it. I'm extremely glad that they listened to fan feedback and enabled single player.

I'm getting tired of hearing about women's issues all the time in the press, I can only summon so much empathy before I start to think "well do something about it then". If writing about their plights is doing something then maybe...stop doing so much about it then

Seriously though people are pricks on the internet, many of the examples are things where something has gone viral or the person was exposed to large public attention. It sucks but that attracts the weirdos. I think they get a different kind of harassment which sucks but there are a lot of lonely people and weird people who act out on the internet because it provides them a sense of anonymity. I'm sure Adam Orth or CliffyB would happy to tell some of them all about the harassment they get.

Edit: they disabled comments for the story which was really lame.

Verno stated my exact feelings on this matter and this latest clickbait article. This has gotten so silly that it's hard to take the issue seriously anymore. Which is a shame, because there is an issue. But overblowing it by several orders of magnitude by posting article after pointless article about it because you need the attention or your site needs the extra ad revenue about only serves to deaden everyone's sensitivity to it until no one cares anymore.

I'm no fan of Microsoft, and their callous wording about people losing their jobs aside, but in this instance I have to say that if anyone Nokia is the bad guy if you are dead set on finding one. Nokia knowingly agreed to this merger knowing it would put thousands of people out of work. Shareholders get a payday, the little guy gets shafted.

Two thirds of them were Nokia employees...

That would then indicate 1/3, or about 6000 workers WERE Microsoft employees, wouldn't it? That doesn't exactly paint a rosy picture for Microsoft, redundancy notwithstanding.

In other news, Nokia employees didn't get a bonus for 2013. Their CEO got a $25 million dollar bonus.

That shit ought to be illegal.

How dare a company fire people! You should have your job until you don't want it anymore or are deemed incompetent! These evil fucks and their changing staffing needs.

I don't think that is what has people miffed. I think itt is more how a company can sound so callous about tossing 18,000 employees and their families out on their asses in a middling job market in a middling economy.

Me, I'm thinking more about the millions upon millions of dollars Balmer got as a bonus when he left for basically screwing up everything he touched royally during his tenure.

You understand it's the corporate communications department, not the executives themselves, writing these messages, and they're doing it heavily under the eye of legal, right?

Why wouldn't he? More importantly does it matter? They are speaking for the company, and these execs are the public face of the company.
