No, things haven't changed much. The DS and 3DS also have very easy methods of piracy, and that didn't stop either of them from absolutely dominating the handheld market.

I'm pretty sure GP's "piracy dooms systems to obscurity" meme is borne of the oversimplified copypasta about the failure of the Dreamcast.

And proved you are either anti-freedom yourself or a psychopath - the only types of people who would not instantly see that this is the only logical definition.

Yeah, there's the circlejerk event horizon. Nothing left for me to do here, so I'll just let you get back to fapping to your slightly-right-of-Ghenghis-Khan Harpy-queen.

I doubt it'll make much difference in the long run, after seeing how .top, .info, etc.. turned out - just more playgrounds for spammers while the registrars get to rake in fees for useless registrations for "brand protection". Legit companies will still have a .com, legit organizations will still have a .org (or a .com), etc.

Maybe after some time, one or two of these new TLDs will get some legitimacy. I expect, though, this will just end up making me spend that much more time updating my check_helo_access and smtpd_sender_restrictions pcre files...

Neither group gives an airborne copulation at a ventrally rotating toroid about "liberty", they just declare their own particular doctrine to be $liberty and then claim the other side is anti-$liberty, which becomes semi-true if you allow for inline evaluation. It's just like the zealous supporters of a certain licensing when they declare that their license is "free as in freedom*" (*using our specially crafted definition of freedom). If that redefinition is rejected, there's nothing on either side but propaganda and bullshit.

First depends on what resources you're talking about. There's plenty of worry about the sustainability of quite a few resources, including ones which will likely be further used up in making this robot worker army.

Second, recycling offers neither 100% efficient returns, nor is it free.

Third and fourth are wishful thinking, at best.
