FTFA:

No obscenity, and especially nothing incorporating pedobear or goatse man, please! Or if you do, please make it extra-humorous â" we wonâ(TM)t use it, but it might afford us a giggle. (If you do not know what either pedobear or goatse man are, I encourage you not to google them. Really.)

Umm trololol?

If somebody produces an addon that gives an advantage over anyone else, paid or not, it's a problem with the game engine. Blizzard has had a long-standing policy of disabling specific functionality when it got out of hand. Patch 2.0 (burning crusade) got rid of all the old braindead button mashing mods that could practically play the game for you. This new policy will have no effect on what addons are actually capable of doing.

+ - Gates' Generosity Under Investigation->

Submitted by vashfish
vashfish (974328) writes "In a fit of irony, the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation is under investigation by the DoJ for being TOO generous. From the article:

"After the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation announced plans to donate five billion dollars to help rebuild libraries destroyed by Hurricane Katrina, the Department of Justice's Antitrust Division launched a formal investigation into the Foundation. Thomas O. Barnett, Assistant Attorney General, said in a press release that, 'The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the world's largest charity cartel, has overstepped its boundaries and entered into the realm of predatory pricing. How is FEMA supposed to compete with private charities?'"
