I think you mean gypped, and it's just as bigoted as saying you jewed someone down on a price.

That easy access via NZ is probably why this Saudi-Arabia-style policy stays in place.
If they actually blocked gamers from getting the games, things would change.

That's probably because you can't handle having your delusions challenged. When people don't have reason on their side, they often become violent in defense of their indefensible beliefs. It's sad.

The question is what do we do about it? How do we help people understand the issues of the day when they've been lied to for so long that they live in an alternate reality, and respond with defense mechanisms when their false worldview is challenged.
If you were really well informed, you'd understand that Fox News is a propaganda channel, and you'd understand that both Liberals and Conservatives have some good ideas and bad. Sane conservatives should despise what the know-nothings have done to the conservative movement.
That criticism of a "news" outlet that's earned every bit of it would drive you away from
I strongly suspect that the false-reality wingnut narrative has taken hold in you.
You've just given examples of right-wing lies, and made yourself an example of what happens when people get their news from Fox. Climategate wasn't an actual scandal. It was made up entirely by wingnuts. No wrongdoing was found at all, but a lot of stupid people still believe that "trick" refers to some kind of deceit when really it refers to a technique for working with the data.
Obama's birthplace has absolutely been proven as much as any can prove their birthplace. There's no such thing as a long-form birth certificate. It's just another wingnut lie.
Don't believe me, ask any honest conservative who hasn't been brainwashed by right-wing media and they'll tell you that you've been lied to.
It's misinformed rather than uninformed. There's been an effort among unethical conservatives to first deny global warming, then when it became obvious to deny that we've caused it. They don't mind killing our kids if it keeps the gravy-train running a little longer for the super-rich. We're probably already completely screwed because of these scumbags.
Napolitano is a 9/11 truther so far gone that he's appeared on the Alex Jones Show. He should not be taken seriously as any kind of thinker.
I think everyone who's smart enough to see through the Fox propaganda has a responsibility to point out that Fox lies to the viewers to make them believe things that are not true. Lying media subverts the democratic process, and we should all take that very seriously.
Who hates Fox News.. Anyone who would like people to be informed and sane. Check out the comments on the Fox News website some time. You'll find lots of hate and madness. It's sickening.
Even if TV and radio news were actually informative and quickly got to the point, it's just way too slow for anyone who can read and think faster than people speak. It's also spoon-feeding as opposed to going where your curiosity takes you.
You sound crazy. You might want to get some help for that.
Some companies do lay off their best people. A company gets too big, and the person cutting heads is completely disconnected from the people they're cutting, so they have no idea what the person contributes, just what their salary is.
At my former company, only the most junior people with very low salaries are still there. They no longer innovate, and can barely maintain existing systems. Apparently it looks good to shareholders in the short-term when they cut expenses.
Sound like you have a problem with your TV. That doesn't impact the rest of us.
I think that's the direction things will go once tablets are as powerful as office PCs, but that day is not today.
