I guess we have to take your word on this regarding the reasons, instead of using Occam's Razor and just accept the most likely answer.
It probably is a nightmare for them. But really the problem is our own society.
It is a problem of society, but not in the way you describe it. It's a problem that people don't act like grown-ups and take responsibility for their decisions.
If I use a service by a company and trust them to upload my private photos to the internet and secure them, and said company is failing to do that and is breaking my trust, I should stop dealing with that company, or take the fight to them. It was my decision to trust that company, now I have to deal with it.
Further, if I decide to upload my private pictures to the internet I should know that something like that can always happen. If something is private I should just save the pictures at home or put them in a physical photo album. It was my decision to use cloud services, now I have to deal with it.
When a girl gets put into a easier math class because she is a girl, that's a problem.
I have never met any girl which was sent to an easier class. Quite the opposite, most girls (and so did most boys, actually) during my school day tended to say "math is hard" and chose to avoid the higher level classes. It's not the society's job to question that decision by a person, nor is there anything wrong with it. People decided they didn't want to do math at a higher level, so it's fine. It's time to treat grown-up people as grown-ups and accept and tolerate their decisions without using them to further some social engineering goals.
When a women can't get a promotion in the gaming industry because 'women don't game' that's a problem.
There are women in prestigious designer jobs, and they got there by hard work, effort and dedication, not because of their boobs. And you know what? I don't care about the gender of the person who created the game(s) I play, and I guess most gamers don't even know the gender of the members of the development team. So why exactly do you want and need more women in gaming development? What is the ulterior motive? Why do you care so much about the gender of game designers? Why don't you just let people who want to become game designers become it and let the others live as they want? Stop making this a gender thing and let people choose jobs because they're skilled and dedicated, not because they have a certain flavour of genitals. It's really that simple.
When a women is trying to point this out and then has her personal life dragged into the public and is threatened with rape and death, that's a fucking problem.
I agree. Those are criminal offenses, and should be treated as such. People who are on the internet and publish things can get attacked for it, and we have laws to deal with it. I fail to see how there is a bigger problem with the "gamer society" in general. Some absent-minded idiots did an idiotic thing. That's it. It's still valid to criticize the feminist faction and not accept that every critic is a supposed misogynist, or object that the videos by Sarkeesian are ridiculously skwed and one-sided. It's an opinion, and I'm not a "women-hater" because I don't agree with what she shows in her videos.
And guess what? IN those situations society needs to make an effort to level the playing field.
It gets down to the very simple fact that feminists and all the other social engineering types are NOT working to even out the playing field or the rules of the game, but to manipulate the result.
I wonder if the costs for implementing DRM, polishing the bad publicity and paying all those lawyers is really in the same order of magnitude as the "damages" by some people enjoying BBC content. And the only damage I see is that those alleged "pirates" are using BBCs bandwidth to stream the content. They wouldn't (because they couldn't) be customers of the BBC anyway.
So you argue that some men in shining white armor should come to the aid of the damsels in distress? Isn't it ironic how the harassed women are now used as a damsel-in-distress plot device in some gamer misogyny story?
So we should assume that women cannot achieve something on their own? Sometimes I'm confused who the real misogynists are in this discussion.
It's easy to complain, but difficult to do something yourself. Wouldn't it be nice instead of signing "open letters" or some other meaningless paperwork that developers and their supporters actually create the games they dream about? If there is the supposed conscience of the inclusion issues, I'm sure there is a market for their games, too. What's stopping them from developing them? And please act like a democratic and tolerant citizen and not tell the other part of the gaming community which games they are allowed to like or don't like, or developers which games they are allowed to develop.
I don't think they want to abandon Android. It's great for hardware companies, in that you need a quadcore CPU and 2GB of RAM to render a telephone directory or do basic multitasking.
- US: CO2 6,750,000 / 4,256,100 GWh=1.59 tons of CO2 per GWh
- Germany: CO2-810,000 / 617,600 GWh=1.31 tons of CO2 per GWh
It's certainly better than the US, but considering this big push the Germany is in for clean energy and the US is only half-ass moving in that direction, I'm a little surprised it is as close as it is.
This is because Germany now uses coal power plants instead of nuclear plants to produce the necessary electricity.
France is on the better side of this by far at: CO2-370,000 / 560,500 GWh=0.66 tons of CO2 per GWh
How surprising, nuclear energy is green energy.

Useful error messages are a technical merit. It makes development much easier. So they traded run-time vs. development time here.

I knew that Apple was an evil company, but I didn't know they dabbled in necromancy.
Nobody would say "he shared data on http", so please stop confusing the BT protocol with BT trackers.
Where's Germany? Did they not collect any data for it?
