As someone who has used both, I don't really understand where this sentiment is coming from. PGAdmin is a way better GUI tool than anything that comes with myqsql, and at no point did I ever run into something that wasn't clear and easily accomplished with the GUI for the basic stuff you'd use mysql for. Of course outside of the ease of use argument mysql is a joke compared to postgres too :).

As someone who occasionally follows the SC happenings in Korea, I can attest to the fact that this is a huge story there. The fame of these players really is comparable to that of football or basketball stars in the states.

More to the point, there is real talent, years of honing your skill, and real fans involved here. That's what makes this match fixing a real deal. That's too bad, this young sport deserves better.
