"digital rights management" should read "digital restrictions management". I don't need software to manage my rights.
When Steam screwed me over and I found out how disgusting Valve's technical support policies are, I swore I'd never buy a game with DRM in it ever again. Yay for GOG!
Dungeon Keeper, which GOG.com gave away free the other day. How did this ever manage to fly under my radar? Love it!
Advanced Edition coming out soon! Because what we need is a hard mode...
Who needs a scripting system that can be comprehended when you can just copy-and-paste gibberish from other sources without ever understanding it?
You think there's something wrong with PowersHell? No problem: there's a scriplet for that.
Good god, it's been so long since I signed for a credit card transaction I can barely even remember it. Next you'll be telling me that the USA prefers to write on bits of paper to send money, taking ages for it to finally be transacted. I wonder.

Nice karma you got there. It'd be a real shame if something untoward were to happen to it...
/.'s lack of engagement has not been good: I definitely agree with you there. But assuming that the beta will plough ahead, ignorant of the feedback, is a childish, knee-jerk reaction. I shouldn't be surprised; this is the Internet, after all. I'm not sure what you mean by "when there's no Slashdot left?". I think you are delusional. The silly vandalism that's been caused by you lot won't cause
I am not Switzerland. I'm on the other side to you: I want my news for nerds and stuff that matters, rather than a crusade to release all my pent up aggression.
I think I should have quantified what made me so annoyed by it all.
