Ok I was willing to let it go in the headline, so everyone gets the topic immediatley, but can you get it right in the damn article at least? He didn't play "Doctor Who." There is no character "Doctor Who." The character is "The Doctor." » 1/27/15 1:17am Tuesday 1:17am

Actually, no it's not. It's vandalism. While I can't say I don't enjoy seeing this happen, given the loathesomeness of the original message, this is absolutely not a case for "the solution to speech you don't agree with is more speech." They cover up, hide, and yes, SUPPRESS, the original ad. It is tantamount to… » 1/27/15 1:08am Tuesday 1:08am

I like bill Nye. He gets people involved in science, gets them to understand the importance of science education and scientific literacy, but he is NOT a scientist in any meaningful way. He's neither qualified nor right often enough to be called that.

In fact, when it comes to high profile media cases like this,… » 1/25/15 9:14pm 1/25/15 9:14pm

Eh, some people broadcast it like a badge of honor. I don't really understand that but some people follow pornstars and webcam girls on the same twitter acct their family and friends follow too. I dunno.

On the flip side, I guess that's one thing by having only the "censored" versions on steam, if you do broadcast it,… » 1/21/15 11:24pm 1/21/15 11:24pm

I'd be lying if I said I wasn't ata least slightly surprised that there isn't already a 12 paragraph op-ed article posted on why we should all feel guilty about complimenting this art. Kotaku's usually first out of the gate with the empty sexism-guilt. » 1/12/15 12:03am 1/12/15 12:03am

This doesn't actually hilight a security issue at all. It's the equivalent of flooding your mailbox with so much shit that you can't get your actual mail. It doesn't mean your actual mail isn't still there, or that anyone else got access to it. All it means is YOU can't access it because you can't wade through the… » 12/28/14 5:40am 12/28/14 5:40am

Eh, my concern is that we'll be lucky to get a smooth reset like the last time. Eventually, if this keeps happening, less restrained powers will wind up in control. Or worse, no one will wind up in control, at least in the sense that they won't be able to keep track of all their cartoonishly bond-villain style nuclear… » 12/28/14 5:34am 12/28/14 5:34am

Sadly most good people are naive and still believe in human decency, and human competence. I think you and I both know that most people seem to lack one or both of those things. We have the benefit of reading about stuff like that online all the time, of creative ways to try and rip others off, etc. This guy probably… » 12/28/14 4:57am 12/28/14 4:57am
