German Court: Google Must Stop Ignoring Customer E-mails

Triklyn Re:You are the vendor, not the product (290 comments)

i think we are the resource.

too avoid the obvious metaphor, we're alpacas.

on the google farm.

they give us food, and periodically shear us to make a profit from our wooly information. This google farm is also a zoo, and people pay to watch us. We're very cute. the farm also has no fences, but you know, this is where they give out free food... so you know, why wouldn't you come to the google farm to eat some nummies? and oh what nummies they are, some of the best nummies in the area... the area that, you know alpacas live.

Should Cyborgs Have the Same Privacy Rights As Humans?

Triklyn Re:Humans have too much (206 comments)

remember donald sterling and brendan eich? imagine that but 100 fold... now imagine that but forever. The public is judgemental and hypocritical as it is. the first thing that would happen would be a fucking market crash as each fortune 500 would have to do some restructuring to find corporate officers pure as the driven snow...

console gamers barely qualify as gamers... maybe for games that require two analogs, but not FPS...

Triklyn Re:Actions Against People Who Happen to be Women (1134 comments)

i've seen straight people being attacked for being gay and or a woman too. you'd have a point if only homosexuals and females got attacked for being homosexual or female. but again, scattershot... and more a symptom of societal ills for being part of that scattershot approach. but that's another discussion.

that's almost nothing compared to what's said between friends. I mean, smack talk is sometimes part of the game, mind game and all.

Triklyn Re:Catchup for those outside of the circle (1134 comments)

no, decidedly not, but as a gamer i worry for the state of gaming... and if some good indie games die because they can't get some decent coverage... you know, then i can't play some innovative games, and that'd be bad.

Triklyn Re:False accusations? (1134 comments)

considering, apparently it barely qualifies as a game, there are almost certainly superior and more deserving games, and he used a screenshot from this one when the other one he singles out he's also literally called an art project?

you asked for positive review, and yeah, in most people's eyes, a singling out as worthy among 50 competitors qualifies. also, i don't think it'd be possible to BS a full blown review of a choose your own adventure. game while keeping any semblance of credibility.

Triklyn Re:Astroturfing for Hillary Clinton (1134 comments)

the link you provided, says in the next line that that statistic includes in its definition of rape, consensual sex under the influence of alcohol that is regretted the next morning. if you're going to broaden it to that, then you've defined away the utility of the word.

Triklyn Re:offensive != offended (1134 comments)

I don't believe protection from our government is a strong enough free speech protection. I believe free speech should extend to the government protecting us from each other as well. I don't believe donald sterling should have been penalized financially for his speech. whether you want to go after him for decades of racial discrimination is a separate matter entirely. Brendan Eich was also done a huge disservice by american society. I'm frankly horrified by the direction of american culture and its implications. Social condemnation is in certain instances more punishing than government censorship, and frankly more arbitrary too.

I'm of the firm belief that one should be punished for their actions, and never for their ideas. the westboro baptist church, their contemptible but again, we should defend their every right to both hold their views, and live in our world, at the same time.

Is there anything that someone could say that should cost them a billion dollars? apparently so. because the american public is both fickle, reactionary and forgetful. social media makes it all faster, more brutal and less discriminatory than it's ever been before, the will of the common man.

Triklyn Re:One bad apple spoils the barrel (1134 comments)

i take issue with the classification. boys and girls play different games. girls tend to prefer the "casual" games. boys tend to prefer the hardcore games. As far as i'm concerned, girls can have those shitty games. God, i'm elitist, and i'm fine with that. because Q3A is was and will forever be the best fps. the gender ratio among "real gamers" is probably 80:20.
