"Do you think that putting suspicious elements under surveillance to combat terrorism is acceptable?"

Asked like that, I'm ok with it. Suspicious people should be watched. The problem comes when you are watching people for political purposes, or for "love" purposes. There need to be safeguards against abuse (for example, warrants). Because we've already seen abuses like that.

Due to the games coding, it just says 'Maintenance' thus causing even more frustrations for users.

It has taken several posts to get an official reply stating it is a DDoS attack
