I said that they are against government in both their private lives and the business sector. I don't know how to say it any more clearly -- my brother is one and maybe giving you an idea of what he is like will help.
He HATES taxes. He hates career politicians -- he wants restrictive term limits. He hates government interference (regulation) in business. He hates government interference in personal freedoms, such as gun control, seat-belt laws, being told that he must recycle by his county government, etc.
Those are mostly all views I can agree with (except recycling -- I am all for recycling), but, the problem with some (not all) Libertarians that i know is that their views are just as extreme as those of the left-wing and right-wing nutjobs out there. I actually know some who plan to move to Alaska and hole up with their guns and tons of ammo. The same ones who bought truckloads of ammo as soon as Obama was elected.
Their is no word in English or any other language to describe how totally and completely retarded you and this idea are. Please do not infect the gene pool by procreating.
He's calling for us to push for state/federal legislation.... on an MMO forum... because he doesn't like server down time, not having his trouble ticket immediately answered, or microtransactions. Don't think there's much to worry about.
Regardless of what you want to call this, it is a business and needs to be regulated to be fair to the consumers. I really think you would be happier if they had a standard to go by and you could play the game whenever you wanted to without worrying about lag, disconnects, instant server downtime, etc.
Wow, out of touch with reality much?
There's such a thing is physical limitations. If you aren't happy with your level of service, then unsubscribe.
There's no possible way to accurately anticipate the kind of response you will get at launch for an MMO. Open beta is a way to help gauge this, but there's still limitations that prevent them from getting a real solid number of players or how that number will impact the servers.
The fact that you're suggesting they get fined every time the server goes down illustrates your lack of technical knowledge on the subject.
A piece of advice. If you don't know what you're talking about, ask someone who does or just keep your mouth shut. Don't go posting nonsense that just gets you flamed.
Short answer to your question. No, never going to happen, what you're suggesting is laughable as a joke at best.
I think gamers should contact their local goverment representative about establishing legislation so that companys who create mmo's have to meet a certain service level for their customers. This is not to just bash Cryptic, but if you pay for a game, you should at least be able to play it without worrying about servers going down every five minutes, server not responding messages, etc. The only only reason they can get away with this is because they don't have any rules or punishment if they disobey those rules. The trend will continue to get worse if people don't join together and put a stop to it. Microtransactions will get worse, etc.
I don't think i've heard something as purely leftist as this post right here. Congrats on making me laugh my ass off and think "thank god i don't think like this guy" lmao
The government doesn't protect you from bad business practices fool, the government has the power to punish those who are caught defrauding consumers.... O! might I add that those laws exist.
I bet your one of those guys that in-game money should be taxed to pay for government programs too right? lmao
I think i should stop before i disturb the other people here.
You mean like child labor laws, anti-trust legislation and the abolishment of slavery, just to name a few? Please, let's not go over the deep end.
There's a place for legitimate oversight and regulation. This ain't it.
well, in a purely free market (according to theory) menopolies (trusts) are impossible to create. the existance of such laws would be evidence that the society in which we live doesn't truly have a free market.
But i'm just being a lil nit-picky seeing as i'm tired and couldn't resist to read this thread
