Comment: Re: Missing some nuance (Score 1) 815 815

I think you may have also missed some nuance. I'm talking about civil war games, not "confederate-themed games" Having said that, I use Android, though I'm by no means dedicated. My current platform at least let's me get content from other sources.

While it's certainly fine for them to remove items featuring the confederate flag in non-historical contexts, as least in the sense that they have that right, they have not done any of this on a case-by-case basis. An Ars article has detailed some of the historical uses of the flag in civil war games that were pulled from the Apple store.

Comment: Grey market nonsense (Score 1) 408 408

What the hell is this lady talking about? This is just grey-market stuff, as long as they're paying for it. I suppose it's a TOS violation. Having said that, This is the very thing I despise about the auto industry, but that's a story for a different time.

+ - SF Says AdWare Bundled with Gimp Is Intentional-> 5 5

tresf writes: In response to a Google+ post from the Gimp project claiming that "[Sourceforge] is now distributing an ads-enabled installer of GIMP", Sourceforge had this response:

In cases where a project is no longer actively being maintained, SourceForge has in some cases established a mirror of releases that are hosted elsewhere. This was done for GIMP-Win.

Editor's note: Gimp is actively being maintained and the definition of "mirror" is quite misleading here as a modified binary is no longer a verbatim copy. Download statistics for Gimp on Windows show SourceForge as offering over 1,000 downloads per day of the Gimp software. In an official response to this incident, the official Gimp project team reminds users to use official download methods. Slashdotters may remember the last time news like this surfaced (2013) when the Gimp team decided to move downloads from SourceForge to their own FTP service.

Therefore, we remind you again that GIMP only provides builds for Windows via its official Downloads page.

Note: SourceForge and Slashdot share a corporate parent.

Experiments must be reproducible; they should all fail in the same way.
