Well I'm all for changes to the site, but we seem to be moving a bit backwards.

Sometimes you have to take a step back before you move forward, AlexSays — Ant did this to help pave the way for things that will be coming next. :3
speaking of changes, though, you might want to take a look at the Community Rules if you haven't done so lately :3

The law doesn't hold the ground it does in real life when concerning the internet because of so many variables. Like with the downloading music issue. Illegal in a lot of countries, but not here. Hard for laws to hold on a medium that is worldwide, you know?

which is why Sony's attempting to go after GeoHotz — because their gigantic legal team has told them that they don't have a legal leg to stand on.

Also, money always returns to a physical product at some point. It starts real, and stays real thanks to an economy where money is constantly in circulation.

not anymore. maybe in the past, but nowadays thanks to debit/check-cards, online payments, and direct deposit, it's all numbers on screens for the most part. it can take physical form, but that doesn't mean it always does, just like the software those hackers are downloading could be granted physical form (as a disc or pre-release review copy) but in practice often aren't.

@BedCommando: Regarding the massage example, the principle is there (and it depends on where you go whether they take payment up-front, same for the guy who fixes your air conditioner or the one who tattoos you), and as much as you attempt to deny it or skirt around it, the law is the law. If the hackers in this example are American and did their deeds on American soil, Sony has a presence here in the US and will certainly prosecute them to the fullest extent of US law.

also, that cash never has to leave the internet — you don't have to hold it in your hand to use it on eBay and Amazon, for example.

When someone hacks into a system and downloads software illegally, they've gotten something for free that every other person has had to pay for. You can't walk into a massage parlor, get your massage, and then just walk out without paying, same as it's illegal to pirate music off the internet. Theft of an intangible item or a service is still theft.

@edhe: you'd be surprised how many people use one username (or a similar username) and password across multiple websites. idk what's involved in a PSN account, but if someone gave them an outside e-mail address (for verification or something) or if they were able to get their e-mail address from one of those same-username website accounts and (god forbid) that person was silly enough to use the same password for their e-mail address as their PSN account, they are potentially super-screwed, y'know?

as for the second question, to apply for credit (in the US anyway), most places will require a SSN and leave it at that, but others will allow individuals to apply if they've got proof of residency and multiple photo IDs (passport, drivers' license/state ID, military ID, etc. and so forth). to be absolutely technical about it, though, there is no state or federal law requiring them to get a SSN from every applicant, and it's a felony in the US to use threat, duress, or coercion to try and force a person by fear or deceit to provide a SSN. they'd have to do their homework to dig up the correct line of laws and prepare to go that far with it, but yes, if you're in the US (which i know you're not, but others here are and should be aware of this) they could indeed apply for credit in your name if they had your information.

Sorry guys, but between this and the other thread, it's been proven that too many people here just want to be disgusting about what should be a very special day for two people (yes, royalty are people too).

what i've managed to pull up with Google so far seems to have said that if your TV isn't new enough to have an NTSC/PAL switch on it (or the option to switch available under the TV's internal menu), so long as you're getting a stable B/W image you should be able to get a color image by using component cables (as opposed to composite) to output your Wii's video to the TV (provided the TV has that option available).
if i've read correctly, it has something to do with the way NTSC and PAL differ with regards to color encoding, and composite is supposed to be standardized in all regions...? idk :3

I'd be interested in a discussion on it, but only as long as it's a sharing of fair opinions, and that no-one is directly linking goldfarming with outright hacking.

i don't have a problem with discussion of it either, so long as no one is attacking any user here for they choices they make. that's what i was warning you about before, Tasuki — popping off and blaming one person for everything bad that's ever happened neither solves whatever problems you and/or your friend(s) have suffered, nor does it serve any purpose here at NL other than to start a fight, which we don't need. :3

@Raylax: Please don't even do that — give your fellow users some credit, lol. Most of the time the spam is incredibly obvious anyway, and all your warnings do is make more work for us during the cleanup process, especially during the rare case when one of us is unavailable to knock it out as soon as it's reported and other users follow the example laid by others and also start discussing it. Just report it and move on.

Tasuki, i really think you have gold farming confused with something else as pertains to the account thievery and guild infiltration. the economy part of it could go either way, but gold farming doesn't involve breaking into accounts and selling everything off — not that i've ever known it to be, anyway.

@Starlight: it should be noted that while the core Anon players may have come out and said they didn't do it, that doesn't mean that there weren't other members involved. those core players can't speak for everyone, after all, and as part of Anonymous, they should know better than anyone else that what one does, all are blamed for — even if they haven't actually done anything.
