Comment: Steam User Score beats traditional scores (Score 2) 135

its a good direction, but someone should come up with an adjustment because:
a) pissed of payers rant more
c) pleased customers usually don't care about feedback
b) too many "happy" reviews that list more negative than positive points
x) positive reviews of sorts "please give them 1-n patches to fix a quadrillion bugs before you vote negative"

the fruits of modern technology abused for corporate interests. that is a big part of what is killing classes. instead of making life better and easier for everyone its all about profits for a few lazy thiefs. ofc those in power have an interest in destroying the lower classes, else their system cant work - be it technology, silly laws, propaganda and religion.

what terrorists ? wasn't that the plan of the secret US government even before 9/11 ? its just what some people predicted long time ago. oh and now its a surprise. self censored press, few more "inner security" incidents that lead to regulated/controlled press. see german history, same shit happend there.

Sure suddenly she is pissed. after months of playing this down and going along with the US. And ofc the reason can't be that the EU parlaments position against the NSA spying (suspend SWIFT etc. ) was just published yesterday and she has to position herselfes with the EU now. despicable politicians and their shitty games, really fuck her.
