I think you mean "couldn't" care less. Ie. it is impossible for you to care less than you do about the feature.

but how do you know he's not actually super-stoked about the feature and everyone else just mistook his meaning? :3

what are you talking about? there's a save point just before like every single boss in the game, including Beelzebub. just restart your DS/i (so you won't lose any gems), pick it back up, and try again. if you're having your rear handed to you too quickly, try grinding a little bit beforehand or leveling up your dudes' crowns, or even switching crowns if it's giving you that much trouble.

@lz: that way you can have it if you want it, and if you don't, you don't -- it kinda falls in line with them offering all the different packages with the PS3 regarding internal storage and stuff, that they would want to give people the option. I believe the Kindle and the iPad both sell 3G/WiFi and WiFi-only models too, so they're not the only ones offering that kind of thing. :3

When NL needs staff, there's usually an advertisement on the main site and the Join the Team link will show an application as opposed to the 'thanks but we're not looking at this time' message. You'll fill that out, the admin staff will review it, and you'll be contacted to let you know whether they're interested or not.

As for 'perks', there's not many other than seeing your name in digital print, but i can safely say you'll be handsomely rewarded by the accolades of your peers, the legions of adoring commenters telling you you're entirely wrong and you should've given (insert game here) a (insert number here) instead of whatever you felt it garnered via the Scoring Guide, a shiny silver shield beside your username, and, of course, a generously rounded six-figure salary...
and by 'rounded', i mean that all the digits are zeroes, haha
