I'm more interested how many of them actually own their games and downloaded the cracked version just to escape the horrid DRM...

As an example, I had to get a crack for Bioshock and Fallout III. I spent over a week on Bioshock going back and forth between CS agents until I finally said "screw it," and got a crack. The solution I was given when the same thing happened in Fallout III was to "upgrade" some parts of my system to something the DRM wouldn't choke on or go pound sand, so I got a crack for it too.

In both cases the games still ran off of the CD/DVD, the only thing that was different was the DRM was bypassed. It sucks that I've missed out on some releases since then but I've started checking up on what releases have what types of DRM before I buy and I've stopped buying games with bad DRM.

I've just got to ask, what's a "liberal fact"? Facts don't have political leanings. Facts aren't ideological. That's like saying gravity is right wing or red shift is centrist.

Ask Ruby Dhalla, MP.

In a recent letter to the editor in the Toronto Sun she accused one of their writers of disseminating "incorrect facts" about a bill she had proposed.

Forget political leanings, here in Canada facts can, apparently, be wrong!
