YOU don't have a problem with this because it doesn't affect YOU. And having your name expire *twenty years or longer* after you've supposedly served your time isn't rehabilitation --- it's an extension of sentence. Ask any sex offender, including the ones on a list for say......statutory of a 17 year old. The mob mentality, the iPhone apps showing nice little maps where you live, etc.

Many of them would tell you that prison is almost safer.

Sony Joins the Offensive Against Pre-Owned Games 461

Posted by Soulskill
from the saddle-up dept.
BanjoTed writes "In a move to counter sales of pre-owned games, EA recently revealed DLC perks for those who buy new copies of Mass Effect 2 and Battlefield: Bad Company 2. Now, PlayStation platform holder Sony has jumped on the bandwagon with similar plans for the PSP's SOCOM: Fireteam Bravo 3. '[Players] will need to register their game online before they are able to access the multiplayer component of the title. UMD copies will use a redeemable code while the digital version will authenticate automatically in the background. Furthermore ... anyone buying a pre-owned copy of the game will be forced to cough up $20 to obtain a code to play online."

You assume the people that voted for him were idiots. I take offense; I voted for Pres. Obama specifically because of his policy suggestions. If you disagree with those policies, fine --- but don't try to lump everyone together and say we're blind. *I* am not.

I'm on a late-2008 24" iMac, 3.06Ghz / 512 Geforce 8800. My computer lags so bad in Dalaran after the 3.3 patch, I feel like a kernal panic is due any moment. One of the *first* things I noticed from the graphical changes they talked about was this weird fog in the Stormwind background behind my human paladin on the character select screen. Something drastic was changed, and not necessarily for the better.

And that attitude is exactly why we have programs such as MADD -- to provide facts, not wild internet theories. "A couple of beers" is why I recently stood in front of my commander, and witnessed my troop lose a stripe (for DUI). "A couple of beers" also killed my best friend when I was 19.

Maybe....just maybe if you're a ginormous food-addicted beast will it have a lesser effect on you from "a couple of beers" than me. But that's not what kills people. It's their feeling of being superhuman; of how it won't happen to them; how 2 beers and drive becomes 6 beers and drive later on.

I'm not attacking you -- I'm attacking that train of thought. If you drink.... even if it's just one .... CALL A TAXI. Please.
