This is probably a permanent thing and applies for many areas, some people plow earth with tractors, some with horses, and some by hand...
Some computer users ( somewhere into 90% ), don't even know that you can search ANY site for a single word they are looking for

it's a shame really that same applies for money, but it's measured how much of a fucked up and usually immoral personality you are to get over other peoples heads.

To be honest I couldn't care less what's in their hearts, as long as their actions mirror what they say. They're a faceless corporation, not my grandmother; if the CEO secretly wants to murder elephants, well that's none of my concern, and neither is their secret feelings towards SOPA; as long as they don't screw the pooch by creating corporate policy for it, I say let them be.

thank you, I guess, for pointing out that earthquakes and tsunamis do indeed suck and destroy stuff. People will just get compensations and move on to somewhere else. There were definately WORSE ( disasters than this and It is worth taking for what it is. Also there are areas that are intentionaly and knowingly made into deserts/toxic lakes or whatever, and it's no disaster at all... so... 12 miles radius is not that big of a chunk to ward off and let smolder in ruins, wouldn't be the biggest or out of proportion dead-zone of the world.

you must have missed the later added content. new breed of AI uses quite advanced tactics, and even tho they are so far focused on taking you down, not keeping themselves alive (that's what PVP is about) they pack quite a punch. and in 10 days these new breed AI npcs come in a form of incursion, that should fuel both pve and pvp content fuse .... im not sure this will end well, but there's only one way to see.

+ - PayPal stops WikiLeaks payments->

Submitted by mpawlo
mpawlo (260572) writes "It seems like Wikileaks is finally starting to learn that corporations do not provide free speech or services as such. This week Wikileaks has not been able to use Amazon's cloud service, then its domain name hosting got into trouble, then some of its other hosting disappeared and now Paypal "permanently restricts" Wikileaks account. This due to EULA violations, namely "payment service cannot be used for any activities that encourage, promote, facilitate or instruct others to engage in illegal activity". The Web and the Internet is fantastic to facilitate free speech, but in practice there is no real safeguards for it, when the sh*t hits the fan for real. You may be a supporter or a non-supporter to Wikileaks, but that is in my opinion the real story here."

It is much easier to suggest solutions when you know nothing about the problem.
