Well done sir.
There is a vital difference between user experience and user results. Where the result will land is a matter of the project itself. The user experience should always be good, but the results have to rank higher than some conveniences. Beyond those vague criteria, I have little I can add without more specifics on the project itself.
Not its relevance to my question, particularly with my specification of what my question was not. my question was why users should GAF, not why politicians GAF.
Exactly. You are paying for guaranteed uptime and (in my opinion it's ridiculous that this is considered business-only, but) an unblocked Port 80.
People seem to be willing to call this "commercial" use too readily in this article's comment section here. I find the trend towards calling browse-only internet service disconcerting. I see no reason why I shouldn't be able to run a noncommercial box or series of boxes at home that provide myself, family, and friends, with access. Either you have internet connectivity or you don't. Arbitrarily determining that use is "commercial" simply because the average user does not use their connection the same way is asinine.
the imaginary line between business and personal usage is not drawn in any way that reflects the actual meaning of the words.
AC doesn't bother to comprehend a post before responding. Go figure.
What I want to know is why in the world the publisher deserves a cent for a game already paid for. Not why they legally can put it into their license, but why they deserve it.
Nukes?! I prefer to use Chinese Needle Snakes.
I actually left the fire service four years ago with a hereditary medical issue after a bit over two years professional and several years volunteer service. Landed back in IT.
My time serving definitely changed my view of what constitutes heroism though. The threshold seems to have become much lower than it once was, reserved for the Davy Crocketts and William Wallaces of the world. Now it seems to be applied to practically everyone in one way or another.
Okay, but kiddy porn is abuse. Not the same thing. It's fucked up that kids (15-17) get prosecuted for sending/receiving nudes, though. And I think I will stay away from your kids anyway. They'll probably try to steal my candy and video games.
I find kids are always on my lawn. I yell at them, but they ignore me
The article lacks numbers, but I have a feeling their asking price was far above and beyond the threshold of reasonable amounts. I just don't care enough to delve into it at 4:59 in the afternoon.
That's my impression as well. The domain owners seem to have played the WIPO, along with any (likely) dislike the WIPO has for men like Paul who would dismantle countless copyright extensions and protections that he feels overreach the reasonable limits of copyright's intent.
...it doesn't actually look like Paul is guilty of anything but refusing to accept a settlement that was unreasonable in the first place. I already didn't trust the WIPO before, and this certainly didn't help improve their image in my eyes.
