It looks to be blocking relayed email, from a domain that it shouldn't originate from. I would think that is what we would want... mail can't come from one domain and claim to be from another. If this is the case, shouldn't the mailing list actually rewrite that it comes from the domain of originating mailing list? Because it is essentially coming from the mailing list

It says that rock *must* be thrown 50% of the time. Not that there is a 50/50 chance of the choice being rock for each game. So the number of games *has* to be set out before gaming commences. As you draw closer to the last game, the odds will change to how likely rock will be thrown. This is very similar to counting cards in a blackjack.

The torrented version up to this point had 3 ways to go with this:
  1. - Rip from bluray and tell people trying to play it on a smart appliance that detects the cinavia watermark "lol ur stewpid. Get real hardware loser" or "OMG it plays on my laptop via VLC fine. Shut up n00b."
  2. - Maim the audio stream to an unintelligible mess to the point the water mark isn't detected, but deal with the fact that you can't even tell what you are hearing most of the time
  3. - Rip the audio stream from the DVD copy and match it up with the bluray video stream

The last was the most popular until recently where they are putting cinavia in the audio tracks of the DVDs as well now.
