(i know, i know... im an idiot a loser a fool who doesn't know what im talking about,,, meanwhile 12 year old's are pushing shopping carts from 4 stories up an innocent lady and they are laughing and telling jokes to each other about it.)

So the reason you are not an evil shopping cart dropper is because you never played a GTA game? I've played GTAs... I wonder how I escaped this fate?

Too bad we can't turn back the clock to the time before video games when nobody did any evil.

Having such a simple world-view may offer you some comfort, but your outrage has little or nothing to do with reality.

P.S., Your poo-pooing the game's rating is also silly. Do you really mean to say that we should eliminate all forms of entertainment from society that are not designed for children? Gosh, there are forms of entertainment for children that are not suitable for babies, so I guess all games, TV shows, movies, etc., should be written for infants? Sweet.

There is no nutritional valve in sugar.

Having seen the impact of sugar on kids' behavior (in spite of what studies say to the contrary) makes me agree that there is a downside to giving them free access to sweets.

However, not to be a pedant, I must point out that there is indeed "nutritional value" in sugar, which is a carbohydrate, and will absolutely keep you from starving if necessary. I'm not saying it's good for you, but I see that line about " no nutritional value" all the time, and it bugs me a little.

Nothing removed in deception, since none of the material removed changes the crux of the comment. That you would remove attempts to take the thread down a religious path, even though the first statement was about the irony of removing comments when referencing free speech. Somewhat ironic I thought.

I did not discuss the "irony" of deleting posts, but of locking the entire thread. I did say I would remove posts that tried to turn this into an argument over religion, since that is both far afield of the original topic and a rather touchy topic for a gaming site.

The purpose of these forums is to foster discussion of the topics at hand for everyone's enjoyment. The purpose of moderation is to avoid the discussions becoming acrimonious.

Well it would be unfortunate to have to lock a thread about the implications of free speech... if irony was inflammable we might start a fire... I'll most likely delete future attempts to take this thread down that path.

Wow. Did you think that comment through?

Meaning what? That my comment makes less sens if you remove a handful of words?

And with that here comes the R&P debate, that doesn't belong on a gaming site.

Just lock the thread now Blue, I'm sure it will not take long for this topic discussion to go from games centric to Religion & Politics.

Well it would be unfortunate to have to lock a thread about the implications of free speech... if irony was inflammable we might start a fire. I agree though, that there's no need for this to get into a religious debate, so having responded to that post, I'll most likely delete future attempts to take this thread down that path.

Ohhh yes, we cannot disagree with people's views anymore and get away with it. You know what, I am a Christian, we get bashed a lot as well. Yup, but I would not call it hate speech. For example, if someone kills a christian, they should be charged for murder. We start adding all this other bs to the mix and you will see homosexuals getting locked up for speaking their mind against Christians. I am not for hate speech regulation because guess who defines what hate speech is? You guessed it...the government and states...What exactly is hate speech? The bible and nature says homosexuality is wrong...Does that mean I cannot believe and have religious freedoms any longer? I am all for everyone being able to speak their mind. That includes the Christian, the muslim, etc...

So this inspired you to pen an impassioned response in favor of hate speech? Interesting.

For the record, they have not actually locked up anyone for the opinions they expressed there, so you can cancel the order for a phony passport, they're probably not coming after you either. And no one mentioned any "regulation," the band member expressed his thoughts on this topic, as has GLAAD. Since you seem to be all for free speech, you should be pleased as punch at how this all worked out.

Do you need to him to let you know when Christmas is coming too?

It's Arkham City dude!

(Pssst. He did announce the release... the eventual PC release will get more play.)

Seats? You were sitting?

I hate people that stand at a concert with seats.

As I mentioned before, we were literally in the front row. So it was not going to improve our view at all to stand, and if we did, we'd have had to constantly be checking behind us to make sure we weren't blocking the people behind us.

This is the only site that I visit regularly that forces them, and as a web developer (13 years) I don't recall one incident where this became an issue.

Okay, now I'm confused. I thought you were asking for code to remove underlines, but it sounds like we are adding code that forces them?

Can you clarify that for me? And as Sarris says in Galaxy Quest, "Explain as you would a child."

Now I'm really curious which HTML editor you are using.

It's actually the much-reviled FrontPage 2003.

You said FF was not creating proper links, not Chrome. And I said FF does, for me. You said your technical issue with FF was it not creating proper links; but that tech related issues works fine for me. So yes, my original comment still stands.

Yeah, I meant Firefox.

3) His HTML editor doesn't support the data format(s) which Firefox uses to include the web page title in a dropped hyperlink.

That's most assuredly it.

Blue, I had mentioned this a couple times in the past, but could you kindly remove link underlines in your CSS? This would make this site much easier to read in Chrome and go a long way in getting me to finally ditch Firefox.

Thanks

I'm sorry, but there are no plans to do this. For most users underlined links are considered standard, so removing them is a problem for more people than leaving them. If there were something I could add or remove from the CSS to make underlines optional, I would gladly do that.

So, either your HTML editor is using some archaic standard that FF ditched but the others still support; or something else is going on!

Right, it can't be that this is a bug in Firefox since version 1, because Firefox is infallible, and the fact that Chrome came out years later and works fine is because they are supporting some "archaic standard that FF ditched." I am growing more comfortable than ever before that you are trolling me.

I am not telling you to stop using Chrome; I could care less what you use. I am just saying; your main tech related issues works just fine for me.

Chrome not creating proper links in my HTML editor works fine for you? Trollbashing

Blue, When I drag and drop links with FireFox, it uses the Title property and not the link URL.....You must not be dragging and dropping properly!

Man, do you love disagreeing with me!

Or it is finally implemented in the latest version. Or you have something configured oddly.

Or we are talking about two different things. This works correctly when creating desktop shortcuts, but not in my HTML editor.

InBlack wrote on Oct 13, 2011, 10:56:
Are you being sarcastic Blue? Because both GTA 1 and 2 were open world sandbox games, they just happened to be in 2d, and were top down...at least thats how my frayed brain remembers them. Lets see here...home garage, check. Two or three factions that you can do missions for, check. Police reputation, check. Big living city with pedestrians and cars you can steal, destroy demolish, check. Hookers, check....Not to mention the fact that there wouldnt be a GTA3 without 1 and 2...

Fair enough, I guess my response really should have centered on the 3D part. I still stand by my main thought on this: If not for the last two games, the first two would be largely forgotten.

The point about there not being a GTA3 without 1 and 2 may be true, though I think the modern sandbox game would have been invented along the way anyway. In either event, GTA3 is the game that put this series on the map, and the GTA1/2 thing seems as relevant as saying there wouldn't have been GTA1 were it not for Spy Hunter.

What about the original release? This is like celebrating Terminator 3, what gives?

GTA3 was a revolutionary, open-world sandbox game.

The first two GTAs were top-down driving games that would be largely forgotten today were it not for GTA3 and GTA4.
