Been a lot longer than 6 months, I've been seeing these things on end user machines for over a year.
Friend, that figure is off by a couple orders of magnitude. I'm pretty sure that the administration itself claims to have created(or saved) only about 60,000 jobs or so.
I've had a really bad feeling in my gut ever since that raid in that South American country turned up a computer with genuine, fake validated vote information for an election that had never taken place. We really need a transparent, verifiable means of keeping the system honest. Treating a voting machine like a black box, to the public, is a huge disservice. It also makes it harder to catch signs of tampering when nobody knows how the damn things work.
You assume every administration doesn't wipe its ass with the Constitution in one way or another.
This may also be an aspect of the really odd way in which the billing system is set up, in which it is actively confusing as to how you cancel your subscription. Some people have made the mistake, in the past, of thinking that by canceling their character IDs, they cancel billing (under the reasoning that if you're being charged for individual characters already). In reality, billing is halted by canceling payments associated with the player's ID of the game itself.
This is further compounded by the fact that, as far as I know, the only way to modify your account at all is through the client itself.

I've been cleaning crap off of computers installed by ad popups for the past year now.
