Not to Godwin the thread or anything, but "I was just following orders" didn't work well as a defense at the Nuremberg trials. Just sayin'.
"There'd better be some sort of concrete proof"
Game companies don't provide ban evidence to end-users, because cheaters always request it so they can improve their cheat progs so that their next account can avoid the banhammer.

Vault-Tec stock is up!
Simply coming back with "ok, we get the message - you don't like SOPA. But i don't hear you jackoffs coming up with any better ideas, do I?" is bully psychology. it is a sorry attempt to rephrase the conversation as "well, do you prefer A or B?"
but that's not the issue. the issue is, "does this problem need to be solved at all?"

2) I'm pretty sure that if you took the action to "delete your profile" with such a short turnaround time, then the spouse's login to your FB account would undo the "delete" action, anyway. Logging in to a FB account during the "deletion waiting period" cancels the deletion.
i think the only reason ps2 backwards compatability was included in the ps3 was to help drive adoption rate for the ps3. as ps3 adoption went up, then ps2 backwards compatability was phased out, until it was gone and the ps3 stood on its own.
it's not like sony really wants you to have a single device to play all their games on - they just wanted the new item to have a better sales ratio until a critical mass of buyers had been achieved.
mod parent up.
first you give them generous caps.
then, once they're used to it, you crank it down and siphon out the money from their pocketbooks.
