I used to use KDE, but I switched away when I realized that none of the apps I use are Qt-based. Let me know when I can use a Qt-based Chrome or Firefox, a Qt-based Vim, and when SWT/Qt is stable (with a Qt-based Eclipse release). Until then, I'll continue using Gnome.
Plus they are really pushing Akonadi hard, and I don't want to run it. And so many bugs I have voted on the KDE bugtracker that never get fixed...
It's really too bad. I love Qt as a toolkit.
Ah, I think I see what you're saying. The banned player should still be able to play single-player campaign without the ability to gain achievements. That would be fair, yes. Maybe they just didn't think of that... I know I didn't.
You're getting too caught up in the details of the analogy. Fine, let's say they don't take your gun, but they revoke your shooting license. Or we could switch the analogy to something like competitive sprints, where all they can do is ban you from tracks.
I actually own a gun. Your analogy isn't quite right.
Let's say you like to shoot competitively. Someone finds out that you've been cheating in order to get your trophies. Your trophies are taken away, and your gun is taken away, but you can to pay $60 to buy another gun.
Losing the money is the risk you take when you cheat, I guess. It pays for Blizzard to keep things fair, though, so I am still all for it.
In my opinion, yes it does. It's a competitive game. There are many people, including me, who are proud of our "achievements." Someone cheating to get the same reward is grounds for banning. It's the same way in most things competitive... I'm not saying you should buy the game, but I'm saying I don't agree with your particular beef with Blizzard. I'm a customer, and I approve of what they're doing.
In order to make it through the day, do these Japanese rely on a bunch of people calling them? Somehow I don't think phonecalls are going to motivate a "sluggardly housewife" (from TFA) to do more housework.
Also, where are the examples? This article is no good without examples.
