Comment Don't tax the new thing replacing the old thing!! (Score 1) 439

Never, ever, never but never, tax the new technology to fund the outdated technology it's replacing! That would be like taxing cars to fund horse and buggies, like taxing MP3s to keep the audio cassette industry solvent, or like taxing online commerce to prop up brick and mortar stores. Horrible backwards thinking that only a politician could spew.

Valve Trademarks 'DOTA' 141

Voice actor John St. John recently said he was recording for such a game in a post to Twitter. The tweet was subsequently deleted. Last year Valve hired 'Icefrog,' lead developer for the original DotA mod.
