    Hell of a response for Christmas day.

    Just sucks to be the guy who was just getting up, getting ready for breakfast in his PJs and Christmas jumper... when the mobile rang.

    Isn't Reddit always at defcon 6?

    Wonder how much money they lost out on.

    Excuse me for being a pedant and unless I'm missing a reference here, isn't higher DEFCON level actually a good thing? :p

    You've obviously never tried to contact steam support

    Plus they have terms and conditions that aren't compatible with the law, they are about to get Rodgered by the EU over refunds anyway

    -never needed to.

    -Still no source for, 'in the world', nonsense.

    -'aren't compatible with the law', which court has deemed this so?

    -'about to' is not have been.

    -'Refunds', nah try again, it's about reselling digital media.

    -EU, oh you mean France, and just some poxy consumer association, pity Germany tried the same and Valve won.

    You really should check your facts.

    they did no such thing, what happened was the email newsletter, for the HIV group got send out with everyone emails visible rather than hidden.

    given anyone could be signed up to the newsletter (its not just for positive people, its for friends, family, partners of suffers etc) and it was just an email its hardly a massive breach.


    its a bit like if the McMillan cancer newsletter accidentally did the same thing.
