"Games Developer Gives Customer Support To Pirate Bay Downloaders"

It's not some tactic to push the message of "anti-piracy" by pretending to be fooled into assisting pirate customers because he knows he's helping pirates by being on a site "thepiratebay."

So, the only reason he would be doing this is because it's better to have pirates like a working game rather disliking a non-working game. Better to have people spread positive "word of mouth" about the game, than to have people spread negative word of mouth such as "game sucks. doesn't even work." A developer would hate to hear that more than they hate to hear about it being pirated.

It's a "grey area" whether he should be paid for his support or not. Too many things to consider; on one hand he does it for himself, but on other hand he should get paid for his time as well, but not for assisting pirates. Etc. etc. (a "grey area")

Microsoft Bans Halo 4 Pirates, and Some Idiots Absolutely Deserved It

This is a reminder to you why you shouldn't play these games; shouldn't support these services; shouldn't get suckered into online gaming services like this. Don't buy a game that comes with a life-time "Hall Monitor" or "Lunch Police Officer" attached to it. Don't buy something that requires you to connect to an online source first before allowing you to play. Please don't allow yourself to be Owned.

Remember the old days? You remember those types of games? Stick to that. Stick to it.

"Yahoo! will! ignore! 'Do! Not! Track!' from! IE10!"

Ya Microsoft, what's up with that? Why you keep screwing up on every IE release? Did you not learn from IE6? DNT is not quite a web dev pain, but still. And it does affect web dev in the future. Either way, this is a huge problem and I wonder why you keep pulling this shit with every IE release? Hell, now we need Server Vendors to modify their shit to bypass your shit. Apache is already on board.

The Most Pirated Games of 2011

Really? Don't you mean "Most Collected Games of 2011" ? Are those downloaders even playing it? Have you not seen the people buying games and apps from Steam or Apple, and not ever playing them? Ya...
