I like the part where Michael is the one responsible for the $6.5 MILLION, oh and that part about seizing assets, generally the whole making his life miserable for being a bad person aspect makes me smile. :)

It comments like this that make me really wonder what kind of world we live in.Michael donnely has a wife and 2 children. He clearly beleived that what he was doing was acceptable, or he wouldnt have filed the case asking for judgement in his favour. I dont think he is a bad person, he merely saw a market for a product and made it, so he could support his family and give his children the best future possible. How the thought of a husband and father living destitute, and his wife and children living in poverty because he made a product that made your computer game slightly less enjoyable, makes you smile says alot about you as a person.A little perspective here would be good - did he sell drugs to anyones kids? kill someone? steal a car? nope. Blizzards cost of $1mill per year over a playing population of 11million is 9c per year, or less then 1 cent per month.

Well I've concluded you're a bad person for feeling that way, so I'm sure you'll have no problem with me hoping you get horribly disfigured in a car crash. Wait-- what's that you say? That's mean of me? That's an unreasonable thing to hope happens to a complete stranger? Ahh, so what you're saying is that disliking someone based on a cursory examination of their character *does not* actually justify people acting like such complete douchebags that they wish ill on complete strangers. Fancy that.

I agree with Nat here. Guys, guys guys, just because something is illegal, does that mean that people will automatically not do it, even though they can make an EXTRAORDINARY amount of money for it? Hmm, NO. Let's take drug dealers for example. There are lots of drug dealers out there, with families, and kids, and whatnot. Do they know what they do is wrong? Of course. Why do they do it? Lots of fast/easy cash. As long as they don't get caught, they don't give a damn. I believe it's the same way here with Donnelly. He's just a greedy prick that wanted more dough than he knew what to do with, and he knowingly acquired it through illicit means. He deserves the full extent of the law to be exacted upside his frickin' head. His wife and children, however, might not have known what he did was illegal. If nothing else, strip Donnelly of all his money, through him in jail, and leave enough behind for the wife and kids to get by until the wife gets a decent job. There. Problem solved.
