They exist to praise regionalism of the different autonomies(regions) of Spain by local politicians

What is up with that? Here in the states no one would even think of doing something like Californi-ux or Tex-ux, or Illini-ux. If some school district or state school administration wanted to switch to Linux they'd just choose edubuntu, or CentOS and be done with it. Why roll their own when they're perfectly suitable distros out there already.

The new deal, for the holdouts is worse, imo.

It's even worse than you think, because it was TWO free games for both the PS3 and PSP, for a total of four. AND FreeRealms and PS Home content worth about $20 for each, AND the month of PS+, AND an additional 30 days of Music Unlimited if you subscribed to that.

Not only that, but those who took that deal still get 1 benefit choice from the new deal, either a game, the themes, or 3 months of PS+

The funny thing is, if you took part in the "welcome back" deal, which I did, you could get two games out of those choices for each platform, for a total of 4 games. In addition to a month of PSN, FreeRealms and PS Home goodies (about 20 bucks worth of stuff for each), movie rentals and a Music Unlimited 30-day extension for those who subscribed to that.

So those who didn't take part in "welcome back", actually get less stuff than those who did who can still get one of the benefits from the new settlement. Either a game, themes or 3 months of PS+

Which version? The PSP or the PS3? IIRC the PS3 versions physics are the way they are because you're supposed to be doing in-air tricks for boosts all the time. I found that feature annoying. If you want something more traditional, there's Little Big Planet racing, ModNation Racing's spiritual sucessor.

Aren't those the "Welcome back" games? They haven't listed the games in the new deal as far as I know.

Ars Technica says those who didn't take part in the Welcome Back get two choices from 3. (PS3/PSP game, Themes, 3 months PS+), those who did get 1 choice of the three. And apparently those who get 2 can choose two of the same benefit, a la two games instead of 1 game and themes.

Why does it matter what direction the fuckwad-*ist direction goes? What relevance does it have to anything?

(Also you'll find social justice people defending basically all the other things you listed, except that's the first time I've ever encountered the term "swole" and honestly, anti-redhead sentiment is just not nearly as high as say, anti-trans sentiment like you were ridiculing)

All the formatting will basically convert "correctly," but the spacing and rendering are often way off, making the document look like you didn't pay enough attention to detail (exactly the OPPOSITE of what you want in a job application).

Sometimes that is a typeface issue. The fix is to make sure both machines have the exact same ones available.

That's entirely a distraction.

Being a racist isn't, in and of itself, a problem. Racist actions are a problem, and being a racist just happens to be a motivator for making a bunch of racist actions.

Taking racist actions without being racist is...not a particularly important distinction.

We're not talking about a comedy club here joking about how each ethnicity drives, after all. From the article:
