You should stop complaining. He's right, you're a shill. It's nothing to do with pro/anti Microsoft bias, I just read your posting history.
IE saved the web? Really? Wow
It also gropes or irradiates.
Personally I'd opt for the groping, embarrassing but safer.
It's unlawful here in Canada too. Seems like they can only apply this in the USA.
Thanks for the info, but 45 for a game that you then keep spending on monthly still just doesn't add up.
Why isn't the game free? Wouldn't they get more subscribers that way? After all, it is the monthly subscription that makes them the money.
They seem to be deliberatly hampering themselves by sticking to the WoW model much to closely.
You see, I'd love to be playing this, but at 60 for the game and 15 a month, that's just too rich for my tastes.
I think the game itself should be free and downloadable, then charge a monthly fee for the online access. I'm going to wait for the cost of the game to come down
But damn, it's so tempting to buy
Exactly. If marketing material is more and more targeted and all pervasive:
- I would find it really freaking creepy. I don't care if it is relevent or not
- I would make a point of NOT shopping at anywhere that targeted me in this manner
Of course stores *may* realise that people don't want this kind of unsolicited hassle and start stating that they don't use this technique. You never know
Not all Senators and Representatives can be technically illiterate, can they?
Does anyone know of any that are more receptive, they could get the word out then among their peers.
The idea seemed doomed from the start, based more out of nostagia than actual practicality.
You'd one one of the team would have said 'Hey guys, when you think about it, this just doesn't add up!'
(Insert Imperial or Metric gag here)
You hear completly wrong. I meant exactly what I said and I stand by it.
"You are right, it needs legalising and regulating. Nothing wrong with the concept of prostitution, it's all in the implementation.
Right now that's what's messed up. Legalise, tax it, regulate and it will be healthier, safer and better for the economy."
This isn't the place for personal stories, but lets just say I have personal experience relating to this.
It's a sad day when you see more trolls on
But thanks for admitting you are a troll, you can now be ignored.
