It's interesting that some people here absolutely revile corporations for trying to get richer when it is something that offends them personally but it's ok when it offends anyone else.
This board, taken as a whole, has weird politics. Well, maybe just childish ones. It's almost like libertarianism, but it hates corporations.
By and large, though, this is a board unwilling to make any sacrifice and unwilling to admit anything it does is wrong. "I don't steal games, I copyright infringe, and it doesn't harm anyone." "I don't demean women or other minorities, I make jokes. They're funny and no one should be offended." Heaven forbid anyone do anything that you dislike, though, suddenly their last name is a euphemism and they should be shut down and burned at the stake,.
Stop and reflect for a second - the only thing most people on this board feel are holding them back and wronging them are corporations (or, to a lesser extent, others that feel they're being wrong.) It must be nice, then, to be that comfortable. Imagine if everyone could feel that way...
What?? Women being sexually dominated by men in society is a significantly older phenomenon than any corporate entity in existence. (Other than the "Holy" Catholic Church maybe). So what exactly is your point? That coporations use stereotypes to increase their profit is basically saying that fish breathe water...Please point to an example where someone said its ok to do that??
I have a nifty blue line!
