In Topic: Have I missed anything?

We should do this! Then, we should dig up that legendary old thread (does anyone remember the username of the guy who wanted to do this?) and tell him he's not crazy after all.

Vipejc. It wasn't really a single thread, it was a combination of several threads over several months. A small selection here, here, here, here and here.

Hey Moe, nice to see you're still around :)

I haven't been on for quite some time either and I feel I somehow lost touch with GDNet as well. Good to see some familiar names here on this thread, now that the rest of the site feels like an alien planet of some sort ;)

Replace 1 TB of pirated material in the OPs statement with 1 TB of child porn, another illegal activity. Most people instantly would be shocked. However, both are illegal things to have on one's computer, but for some reason people in this thread are taking the viewpoint that piracy isn't as bad and thus not a kickable offense.

This is a very bad analogy. There is an entire universe of difference between music piracy and child pornography.

In Topic: SOPA

As ChurchSkiz said. Governments are notoriously incompetent and technophobic when it comes to technologies they don't understand and that they perceive as a potential threat to their power monopoly. And they're notoriously competent at retaining this said power and associated revenue streams with all means, even if that means undermining the very principles of democracy they are supposedly built upon. Nothing new here.

I haven't followed this SOPA deal, but from a quick look it seems indeed messed up. Then again, copyright law by itself (and patent law even more so) is messed up and is in dire need of a major overhaul to modern standards, especially with respect to the ever more prevalent global networking environments people live in today. Copyright is obviously an important concept, but criminalizing major parts of the population for minor infringements is just ridiculous and archaic.

3 pieces of coal and a 33% off Valve games... Wow...

Similar result for me - 3 coal and 2 coupons...

Clearly Valves' random number generator doesn't like us :wink:
