I am highly disappointed in the comments section for this story thus far...

Well, I guess some people that have been around during the kickstarter have already died of old age, so you might want to excuse their absence from this talkback.

...aaaand the party has started

<who cares>

Let it go because right now it's just coming across as astro turfing, which annoys the holy fuck out of me.

Oh FFS it was obvious from the start that slick was an astro turfing account for EA (with the caveat that any sufficiently rabid fanboi is indistinguishable from a shill).

If Valve doesn't give a shit about hate groups being on their platform, why does this guy think they give a shit about him canceling his account?

They don't give a shit about anything but money. If the hate groups buys games, Valve is perfectly okay with them. Sad story, but there you have it.


I think that one of the ideas behind this sort of consumer activism is that is does impact the bottom line. Obviously not when one person does it but if it is taken up as a cause by a large group of people then the impact can be considerable - hence the reason that this particular whiny bitch it telling people about their actions.

Anyway the comments on this topic has been interesting reading. I have discovered that Valve exceptionalism even beats angst about online hate speech.

Maybe there's a problem and you're a terrible troll. At least be funny or original in some way, you're offensively boring.

You must be new here.

At least Beagle is a far more entertaining troll then fistingtime.

Ugh, Star Citizen. Can't even bring myself to make disparaging remarks now, everything has been said ad nauseam.

Well don't let that stop you. Oh I see that it hasn't, good job.

Incompetent troll or social experiment? I can't quite tell.

Right? I wish common sense judges like that were more prevalent, across the country. Not that it would work for every case, but a HUGE chunk of them can and should be decided by one person in a half hour or less. At the very least, someone like Judge Judy could examine your case and decide if it even deserves to be filed at all. But then the blood-sucking lawyers would raise hell in the face of such efficiency.

For demonstrating extreme stupidity on the internet I sentence you to ONE NIGHT OF REHABILITATION!

Even in the Soviet Union, during the worst of its dark years under Stalin, they didn't dare dismiss the work and findings of scientists at home, and even across the globe.

It's probably a bit late in the day to head of this particular piece of anti-trump hysteria but it reminded me of this editorial in Nature:

Sounds like the new attack vector will be the "white listed" programs, just attack ones that are common for most people to have installed like Adobe Reader.

We are heading into the eventual day when it won't be optional to install programs unless they're from the MS Store.

Not in the EU. If MS pulled this you can count the days till their next billion penalty.

So iPhones aren't sold in Europe?

The printer thing has been know about for a long time. A few decades I think? Still the article did draw my attention to the "Russia hacked the elections" leak so mission accomplished I guess.

Right now, laws are 98% correlated to what companies want, and only 50% (random chance) to what people want.

The link you gave does not appear to include the figures you are quoting, closest I could find is:
"A proposed policy change with low support among economically elite Americans (one-out-of-five in favour) is adopted only about 18% of the time," they write, "while a proposed change with high support (four-out-of-five in favour) is adopted about 45% of the time."

I wonder if Trump has finally gone a bridge too far by asking Comey to quash the Russian investigation then firing him when he refused.

No, he can do whatever he wants. He is the president. The greatest president ever who has achieved soooo much in just a few months. He makes America great again just as he promised!

Wow. In 2008, we all thought it could not get any worse than GWBjr., but Trump easily is the new all-time low when it comes to White House residents. He is very likely a coke addict and definitely an egomaniac, a narcissist. Unfit for duty in every way. Just like for serving in Vietnam back in the day.

Are you deliberately trying to undermine what jdreyer wrote with that nonsense?

Battlefield already did Vietnam, and it wasn't exactly their best selling title.

The Eve of Destruction 1942 mod was far superior to the standalone Vietnam game. Thanks to this discussion I have just discovered it is also now a stand alone game in it's own right:

Going to check out the demo what I get he chance.
