So they can leave a voice mail along the lines of, "This is NAME at HOSPITAL, please call us at your earliest convenience as we have someone here who has listed you as a point of contact."

Then when you get out of that long highway tunnel and can pull over you can check your voice mail and go to the hospital.

You don't NEED to be instantly accessible, there is nothing wrong with being QUICKLY accessible.

Yes they are.

If Amicus chooses not to buy or play the game, he will tell his friends about this decision and why he did it, doing his best to make sure they follow in his footsteps.

If Amicus chooses not to buy BUT play the game anyway, he will tell his friends that the game is actually rather awesome (if it is), and some of those friends may decide to buy it anyway because they don't have a beef with EA.

Oh wait, was that not the end result we were supposed to reach?
