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.

Excluding Intelligent Design Principles From the Search For Alien Life 308

from the irreducible-simplicity dept.
KIdPanda writes "Prompted by pictures of man-made structures in the Utah desert, a SETI astronomer explains the sometimes-ambiguous difference between seeing the hand of God, alien intelligence, or nature. 'In my photographs, Shostak's SETI-trained eye — standing in for a pattern-crunching computer program — searched for an unexpected increase in visual order (or, in thermodynamic terms, a decrease in entropy caused by the rebellion of life against universal decay). A road or a tended field is mathematically simpler than a mountainous jumble or naturally varied vegetation. ... But there's an obvious problem: nothing is simpler than a sweep of blue sky, or the inky blackness of space. If simplicity is the benchmark, space itself is evidence of design."
