Has there ever been a better reason to use adblock? Does any user tech-literate enough not run adblock?

This is now starting to seem kind of unreal, like it's actually completely staged.

Yahoo keeps getting hacked all the time, it's a bit ridiculous. Even more so that Blues keeps posting links to some yahoo websites.

I don't know about it being illegal or not, but it is clear they were cheating by abusing an exploit.

This is very different to something like, say, card counting.

They're not corrupt, but they are pretty one-sided in their scientific reporting, so keep that in mind when you read their articles.

Got any recommendations for something else? I used to frequent Newscientist, but ugh, all that locked content got to me eventually.

A question, please.

What with all the revelations from #gamergate, ArsTechnica's senior video game editor, Kyle Orland, has been seriously implicated. However, what does this say about the rest of the ArsTechnica website?

Personally, I have never seen it as "gaming" website, I've always gone there for technology and science news and interests. Since the senior staff of ArsTechnica hasn't seemed to respond in any way to all these allegations against one of their own, can we assume that the rest of the website is just as corrupt and not to be trusted in bringing objective and unbiased technological and scientific journalism?

This is pretty common for Korean games for some reason. Lineage 2 also had this, the Korean version of the game was something like 5 years ahead of the NA version of the game. Same thing with Mabinogi, and I'm sure other Korean games.
Not really sure what drives them to do something like that.

Also, despite claims of this being a sandbox pvp MMO, there isn't even a hint of that when you start playing. It's all just mindless quests wow-style. If the game somehow does a 180 somewhere at a certain level and becomes an open pvp sandbox MMO, that would be insane. Who would design something like that, and why would anyone even bother playing it then?

Is it true all of the available land that you can build on has already been claimed? How? The game has barely just launched!

It's really hard not to read most of these in anything but Simpson's "Comic Book Guy" voice.

10 minutes on any public gaming server will show that yes, the gaming community harbors a large number of misogynistic children who exist solely to tear down anyone "not them". It's shameful, and anyone who tries to change that culture has my support.

24-year-old gamer me would spend a lot of time and tears arguing about #GamerGate. 44-year-old me wants to throw up his hands and quote William Shatner.

Now, get off my lawn!

Pray tell, who is arguing against that?

Ah, well those breitbart articles take the time to explain things. I wonder why there aren't more that simply explain the situation from beginning to the current like that.

Also, why is Ars Technica being called a gaming site? I go there for science, tech, and political news. Gaming pieces appear there maybe only once a month or something, which I don't bother to read anyway.
I wonder if this gamergate issue with their gaming writers also reflects the integrity of their other reporters...

I don't understand. There seems to be two meanings to gamergate. Go to a site like gamasutra or RPS or any of those, and you will be told that gamergate is about bringing attention and fighting against the sexism in videogames industry, and how those sites are fighting the good fight about it by bringing it to attention.

Then go to a site like bluesnews and the others, and you will be told that gamergate is about corruption of so-called "video game journalists" in the video game media.

It's in the gaming press' best interest to lie about what the movement is actually about. Despite it being a long overdue movement dedicated to taking a shamelessly corrupt media to task, they want you to believe it is about gamers being misogynist neanderthals since that is such an easily assailable position. Just more proof how unscrupulous and dishonest places like Gamasutra and RPS actually are.

Hm, well then how did it start? All those sites simultaneously fired off a "gamers are dead" article at one point, but what prompted them to do so?

And why such a huge contrast to how the same sites reacted to dorritosgate, which was basically the exact same thing?

Dafaq? Somebody needs to be sued over that. What makes them think they can take personal, potentially copyright-protected files, and just upload them willy-nilly anywhere they want without any user permission?

The only thing this "experiment" proves is that the standard pseudo-legal user agreement thing is not good at conveying important information to the user, especially when presented immediately prior to some kind of action the user is trying to perform in a hurried state.

Nothing new learned here, and somebody's time wasted. Also enough with the clickbaits please.

Actually this caught my eye until I read that the game will include prompts for you to fill in after. Meh. This isn't aimed at people that like to write fiction at all. This is aimed at people that have always wanted to, but never could. And unfortunately I don't think this is going to help push them over the bump.

Hm, I used to love playing this. It has the best gathering and crafting system of any game I have ever played. Unfortunately the rest is all a big "meh" and even the gathering and crafting becomes very grindy at some point.

Their list of improvements doesn't look too great to me, though I guess it's tailored to the currently playing people, and not folks like me that would love to play again if there were other changes made.

I would be very careful about using dodgy cdkey-reseller sites like that. Not least because sometimes their source of CDKeys are actually stolen.

But also because this:
