An individual who seeks to minimize his tax obligations or a government that feels that it is ENTITLED to tax everything that moves?

First one. Second one can be seen to come along as a result of the first. I'd like to think if people didn't dodge taxes we wouldn't see so many of them.

Sure their games are glitchy but...

Every single aspect of Alpha Protocol apart from the choices/consequences system is utterly mediocre.

So very true. It wasn't the fact that there was a "win game" button that made me dislike it. Those buttons are not all that rare. It was the fact you could collect SEVERAL "win game" buttons and just not even have a challenge anymore.

WikiLeaks Gives $15k To Bradley Manning Defense 321

wiredmikey writes "The Web site supporting Bradley Manning, the Army soldier charged with leaking a massive number of US classified information to WikiLeaks, posted an announcement on its site today, saying that WikiLeaks had transferred $15,100 to the legal trust account of Manning's attorney. WikiLeaks has been publicly soliciting donations specifically for the expenses of Manning's legal defense following his arrest in May 2010. The contribution by WikiLeaks brings the total funds raised and transferred to Bradley's civilian legal defense team, led by attorney David Coombs, to over $100,000. Supporters say that a 'vigorous defense' for Manning is estimated to cost $115,000."

Slightly worse, I'd say. You're a single person, so you can just point at a color, whatever it may be, and call it good. They have to pass a resolution to create a committee to appoint a group to review the plans, and then squabble about who gets what in their state.

It's precisely BECAUSE something could go wrong. A full day on a site like Facebook is more than enough time to see any major issues crop up, yet isn't long enough to deeply impact their service*.

*I know, I know..."Facebook" and "service" in the same sentence. Hurpadurp.

The juvenile side of me wants to make a joke off of "long enough" and "deeply impact", but I'd rather just say this: A full day on facebook is also a lot more likely to cause thousands of grandma's and others to claim the internet is broken if something goes wrong. I hope ISPs are going to be ready for support calls.
