Feb 15th 2010 4:33PM I always just offer to pay some amount. It's not a tip unless they say "just tips." Then I give them 5g and go on my way.

Dec 15th 2009 1:06PM These comments are filled to the brim with idiots. The article was pointless as well.
It doesn't matter what rights the government grants you if you agree to a contract that reduces those rights to nothing.
Ideally Blizzard would be engaging with its disgruntled customers instead of banning them from the forums. Nowhere in the forums code of conduct does it say users will be banned for being angry.
Dec 13th 2009 6:21PM Wasn't that MW2 screenshot actually of a group that was "boycotting the boycott"?
Dec 13th 2009 12:00AM ^ That kind of discussion has been all the rage on cable these days. If you don't like something, don't bother engaging in meaningful conversation, just belittle your opposition and start screaming.
Dec 12th 2009 11:57PM "The topics are infinitely complex, often times requiring high level education to understand completely."
That's some sloppy writing there. I'm sure the game isn't *infinitely* complex...
Anyway, the vocal minority exists in MMOs just as it does in all games. The worst case scenario here is that Blizzard stops listening to the community. Is that so bad? I don't think they waded through 20,000 topics on buffs and nerfs before deciding on the balance of siege tanks in starcraft -- but it was still a great game.
All the most vocal players need is a chill pill and an CM to be nice instead of talking down to them.

They're waiting for you to make them.
Dec 7th 2009 1:13AM Why would you buy one when paper is so much cheaper and faster?
I'm going to wait until the refresh rate for e-ink is less than 100 ms. =/
Dec 4th 2009 4:59AM I don't think there's any comparison between the two. The current crop of Google street view pictures are stellar, the usability of the app is top notch, and the locations covered are unmatched by Bing. If MS expands quickly, they might be able to catch up. But honestly I don't care if they do. I think Microsoft should stick to making (or trying to make) excellent software and let Google have the web.
