Proposed alternate hypothesis: Your media provider has such a complete monopoly that they don't need to provide customer service, and instead find it cheaper to give you the runaround?  What you see as incompetence, they see as a cost-saving solution?

It sucks you can't get 'em electronically.

This process (80% of the stuff lawyers do) is about to get automated by deep learning systems which can do the job infinitely faster and an order of magnitude more accurately.


Have you tried turning the forum off, and then turning it back on again?

And then Junk became Prime Minister.

... That's how it works, right?

If you're going to do some Covert Ops in the name of Discordia,
keep your head down, and Keep Your Fucking Mouth Shut.
A mowhawk is as good as a target during Police Action.

The wise spags toss a wrench into the Machine™,

They strike against Authority, but don't put it on the Internet.
They subvert the paradigm, but don't stick around to watch.
They mindfuck the people, but don't pat themselves on the back.

If two people know a thing, it is not a secret.
Getting away with it means staying away from it.


Wow.  Strong contender for best thing I've seen all day.

Good observation re: socioeconomics.  Incidentally, I got to Level 6, and it gets a lot easier to take out portals.  Make the game a lot more fun, in that you get a lot more involved in the competition.

Dok speaks truth.  The Culture of Fear has been bred so swiftly and strongly, but without a real, legitimate, honest target; and so the culture begins to feed on itself, as we are the only things that exist to that Culture.  The rest are fantasies, ghosts, imagination.


With respect,
We've all heard big Donkey Show promises before sir. The current administration rode in on them.
The people need results, and that means complete deregulation. Do you have the courage to tear down the barriers that a robotic opponent might not?

You mean a game that is entirely based upon the physical location of the user's phone at any given moment could be made by someone OTHER than the company best known form mapping every roadway in the country?

I'm not sure what your complaint is, especially because I'm pretty sure you couldn't develop this game as universally WITHOUT google.

Looking at the Intel map, it occurs to me that the reason Resistence keeps winning is because they simply have more people playing.  I wonder if it's a narrative choice: It fits in with the "brave humans fight the alien menace" story, whereas I feel like I'm playing the "bringing progress to humanity" story, where the Resistence are more like Neoreactionary luddites preventing mankind from advancing.

Then again, I may be reading too much into all this, and people choose Blue because it's a primary color.
