Targeting OS X is tempting because of 99% of all Mac users *knows* that "Macs can't get infected" (the Apple salespeople told them so), and therefore they don't have any kind of antivirus installed.

At work, I daily deal with Mac-users who gets their mailaccounts hijacked because of infections. It takes roughly 10-20 minutes to convince them to download and run Avast or something like that, but it's worth the "oh....".

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

It's not (not for the gTLD's). People who are anonymous either uses fake information in the whois, or (more likely) doesn't actually own the domain. Which can cause some interesting situations when they want to transfer the domain, and the proxy-service that actually owns it doesn't cooperate.

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.
