rcolbert (1631881) writes "The long-awaited and eagerly-anticipated release of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is upon us. However, there are some 'features' of the game that PC users are taking exception to. As of this morning, the PC version has achieved an abysmal 1.3 out of 10 user rating on IGN.com. It's clear that this is not a subjective review of the game, but instead a statement of protest. One major example is the requirement of Steam technology to make the game work. I find this ironic, since Half-Life 2 and anything else published by Valve has had a Steam requirement for many years, and yet this is the first game I'm aware of that has fallen victim to this level of online social activism. The question is, should IGN do something to moderate the protest when it's quite obvious that most if not all of the users who scored the game '0.0' don't own and have not played the game, or should they let the angry mob have their voices heard? What do you think about submitting highly negative product reviews as a form of protest? Is it the little guy standing up to the man, or is it intellectually dishonest?"
