Actually, during the 90's, Iron Maiden kind of sucked. When Bruce Dickenson left, they they weren't as good without him. And his solo career got nowhere without them. In 2000, he returned though, and ever since they have been even better than they were in the 80's. Now, over their past 4 albums, they have shown that they are one of the best Prog-metal around. It's been a great comeback

Go read Nancy Kress' novel Beggars in Spain. She had an answer to that question, and probably not not one you would like. When those in power realized they no longer needed the underclasses, the lower classes were eliminated. With prejudice, outside the US, at least. Seems grimly plausible to me.

Never understood this line of thought. Sure, hardware will cost a little more on the PC side, but the cost of software will more than make up for that over time. When I can get a PC title for 25% the price of its console equivalent this argument makes no sense. In the next generation of consoles, software prices are getting a sharp increase, thus making an even better argument for PC gaming

Yeah, yelling and screaming will certainly get people to see your point of view. Here, try it for yourself:

Next time you want to reason with someone, you stupid, shit-for-brains numbnut fuckwit, don't scream at them.

And if you aren't interested in reasoning with them, don't bother.

This is what I think Blizz/Activision will say if you complain. What are you gonna do, go play another game? Even though they are losing subscribers, they have enough that they really don't care. I don't play WoW, nor do I even like it, but I have some relatives who are so addicted to it that Blizzard executives could break into their house and rape their children, and they would give it a pass. This is meaningless on that scale.
