Can we ban a user for claiming Al Qaeda is a fictional creation?


Also, I mean ban from life, or at least breeding. Not just ban from this site, but I'd be ok with that.

Allegory of the Cave - read it.

Since the group is a fictional creation - a modern day Emmanuel Goldstein - i'd expect the game was made in Tel Aviv.

HA! MEMRI! the propaganda service run by an Israeli ex-colonel. Yep - more propaganda!

.. and it gets better. The game is hosted on MEMRI's servers.

Yeah, this is Al Qaeda work. UHUH.

I'm thinking the movie Gattaca was pretty prescient.

No privacy is fine as long as there's a robust set of laws and support mechanisms in place to protect people from discrimination. But most countries don't even approach that currently.

Na´ve at best. The US government simply says 'national security' and does whatever the hell it wants regardless of legality. If the information is available someone will abuse it, whether government or business.

This slow slide into totalitarianism turned into a freefall when cataloging of potential troublemakers (ie, informed people opposed to totalitarianism) became easy with the likes of facebook and the data it harvest and provides.

The best privacy is not allowing compilation and storage of the data in the first place.

Controversial God of War: Ascension trophy altered in upcoming patch.

Rated M game, where you decapitate people, gods, etc., and they fold to "Bros before Hos".

LAME!

This is what's known as caving into the PC crowd because a particular word might offend them.

Bullshit.

Whatever Anonymous. Unless you have proof that the CEO is a raging pedobear or the like nothing is going to change. 14 gigs of usless information, wow, BoA and the corporate world are just quaking in their boots.

hmmm. That stuff would be nice, but what's needed is not individual, but corporate corruption.

getting one person in trouble achieves nothing, exposing the activity of a corporation however, makes shit happen.

OMG OMG OMG SPACE HULK OMG OMG OMG!!!!! Please dont suck....

Dude, don't support the dickbags at Lame Workshop.

As much as I agree about the dickbag part, Im still dying to play a new version of one of my favorite games of all time.

While GW are dicks - they do make some of the coolest games. Spacehulk is just legend.

Ubisoft can go screw themselves.

They are quite happy to shovel product that doesn't work out the door and never have it fixed, while including the most invasive DRM schemes possible.

I'm not buying an UBIsoft product again - there's more than enough great games on the market that work and don't punish me for being honest and purchasing their product.

Hey, it beats reporting on an unarmed American kid shot to death by Israeli commandos for video taping their international piracy and terrorism.

The media is there to distract us, and lie to us, into supporting endless war and consumerism.

I understand people not liking how EA goes about making money and if I'd known about the always-on requirement at the time, I wouldn't have preordered Simcity. However, deger's attitude is just naive.

My annoyance is with the people who kneejerk "EA bad!" for everything they do. I don't love EA. I don't particularily like EA. I agree that EA does lots of scummy things. But sometimes they do decent things,

Since when? name one!

First it was MMO
Now it's microtransactions

I yearn for the days when you could buy a game and you owned it, you could play it online or offline, you could sell it if you wanted to, and it worked, and it wasn't compiling your personal information for resale.

Hahahaa. Yeah, good luck with that, anonymous.

Creston

Actually, they make a good argument. I wonder if EFF or ACLU will take up the cause.

No, they don't. DDoS is not a protest. It's denying access to others, which is illegal. A protest at, say, Walmart is perfectly fine. A protest at Walmart which tries to prevent people from actually entering said Walmart is illegal and will be broken up by the police in a heartbeat.

No judge is going to rule otherwise, and the EFF / ACLU know this full well, which is why they'll never touch this entire thing with a ten foot pole.

Creston

I don't think it's illegal.

It IS legal in Germany (last i heard).

Sorry - I should be getting this free considering I wasted $1000US on video cards to 'fix' the performance issues that were known by the developer and hidden from the community during launch by attributing the problems to nonsense.

NYC police amassing cell phone logs?

Which means the hardware and software is in place to compile the data.
Which means that someone other than NYC police is compiling the data.
Which means this third party is giving the data to other agencies.
Which means you have no privacy.

Just like the Nazi intelligence service in Germany, this system could be abused by an authoritarian government - which we already have.
