It doesn't. Who said it did? The question was why the social norm doesn't match nature. And my answer is because we've modified the "nature" of death, we need to modify the "nature" of birth so that we don't run into overpopulation issues. We're living longer and surviving things we wouldn't naturally survive. We probably shouldn't be procreating at the speed "nature intended" because we're not dying at the speed "nature intended." There's nothing moral about the issue at all. People need to stop having so many damn babies, in their teens or otherwise.

Actually they do still update the game, with new features and content even. They release a new update every month. It's funny because it used to be when new features where requested by players they would often give the excuse "PS2 limitations." One of those limitations was inventory space, which apparently the PS2 didn't have enough memory for more. Now they've added quite a bit more inventory space, which has been sorely needed. Also the last expansion (Seekers of Adoulin) was never released for PS2 because it couldn't handle it.

lister king of smeg writes: What happened?

SourceForge, once a trustworthy source code hosting site, started to place misleading ads (like fake download buttons) a few years ago. They are also bundling third-party adware/malware directly with their Windows installer.

Some project managers decided to leave SourceForge – partly because of this, partly just because there are better options today. SF staff hijacked some of these abandoned accounts, partly to bundle the crapware with their installers. It has become just another sleazy garbage site with downloads of fake antivirus programs and such.

How can I help?

If you agree that SourceForge is in fact distributing malicious software under the guise of open source projects, report them to google. Ideally this will help remove them from search results, prevent others from suffering their malware and provide them with incentive to change their behavior.

As this story has been submitted several times in the past several days, by various submitter and is going around various other tech forums( , , ,) this submitter wonders has our shared "glorious Dice Corporate overloads" been shooting this story down?
