I've never heard that before. Oh wait, we're playing the "make up random nonsense"-game? I'll play!

Same here. Civ V was the last game I bought without at least downloading a cracked copy and testing it myself - it was such a huge disappointment. I still suspect the reviewers were bribed somehow, or perhaps tested the game before it got radically dumbed down, just before release?

It's not until recently that I dare buy games again, after watching reviews on youtube so I can see it for myself. I will never trust Firaxis or "professional" reviewers again.

Because it's very easy to use for people with their own domain but little tech knowledge, it has a massive amount of themes and plugins to choose from (which I admit can be a problem) and it has much less security issues than any comparable CMS.

I've worked with hosting abuse for a long time, and it's fairly rare to see a hacked WP nowadays - unless the owner of the site has turned off auto-updating. Hacked Joomla-, modX- or Drupal-sites are much more common.
