French Assembly Adopts 3-Strikes Bill 343

An anonymous reader writes "After lots of turmoil, including a surprise rejection and a European amendment against it, Sarkozy's 3 strikes law has just been passed by the French Assembly [in French]: 'The first warning mails ... should be sent in the coming fall. In case of second offenders, the first disconnections should start beginning 2010.'"

Submission + - EverQuest 2: Devs Grant Favors to Cheating Guild 1

An anonymous reader writes: SOE's small and generally quiet EQ2 Test Server is suddenly at the center of a major controversy. A guild proven to have enjoyed Dev favors on Test was transferred for free to a Live (production) server. No other Test players were allowed this "small kindness," widely known to be forbidden, and transfers from one Live PvE server to another usually cost a player $50 USD.

In an epic thread on SOE's official EQ2 forums, the new senior producer for the game (Bruce "Froech" Ferguson, taking over for the recently departed Scott Hartsman) insults and blames the other players for the fiasco, choosing a guilt trip instead of an apology. Red-names at SOE claim to be sorry that the player-base is offended but, in excellent political double-speak, never once acknowledge themselves as the source of the offense.
