DICE on Bad Company 2 Servers

Eurogamer has word from DICE producer Gordon Van Dyke who explains that DICE makes "no profit" from the rental of Battlefield: Bad Company 2 servers, saying they are not publicly distributing dedicated server software to "protect the game's integrity on PC." While saying, "This does not earn DICE a profit," he leaves open the door to future policy changes by adding: "But we will see where the game goes and support it post launch."

I hate to break it to you, but you better start adapting or you're just going to be miserable and spread that misery in places like this. I'm not saying we need to completely bend over, but their has to be give and take. Things aren't how they used to be in PC gaming. People need to realize that. I'm just happy a company like DICE recognizes that the industry is changing, yet are willing to make compromises to give people what they want and still guard their product. It sure beats what IW has done lately. No compromise, whatsoever.
My opinions are going to be voiced in forums such as this and my "misery" will be "spread." That's why forums exist for feedback. My arguments tend to be backed up by valid reasons, I'm not just shitting on a game without explaining why.
You mention compromises and give and take philosophy. For PC FPS games I'm used to public dedicated servers, console support, free mod tools, free mods for about a decade. Dice are not going to deliver on these. They are delivering a PC FPS game though which I would have to pay for to play online. I give them money they give me an PFS game and some patches (unknown what patch support for PC will be like). Where is the compromise here exactly? Where is the give and take you refer to? Am I just supposed to grateful that they are releasing an FPS for the PC? Not good enough.
