Yes — the Israel lobby is so strong that they affect what goes on in Children's Museums in Oakland California. Palestine WISHES it had PR Gurus with this much power.
The people who want to shut up Westboro Baptist Church (and the KKK) are the same people who want a world like this – a world where you CAN'T actually say whatever you want if it hurts someone's feelings.
If you don't want trolling on your dead person's tribute page, set up comment moderation. That's life. Deal with it. Don't be a pussy and whine to your government that your feelings were hurt. Government is not here to protect your fucking feelings.
As someone points out, 'It's similar to the Muhammad cartoons: Somebody makes fun about a dead guy, offending people who care deeply about that guy. So if those cartoons are considered Free Speech the same should apply here. Even more so because here we hurt maybe a few dozen people, with Muhammad it was many millions."
The amazing thing here is that the majority of otherwise-reasonable people will argue that this is a good thing. This is one of those emotional issues that turns most people fascist.
godDAMNIT if i'd known this was out i would have bought it then! This is just like their ATari-controller-to-USB-adapter: Sold out before I ever hear about it :/
This lets you put every Atari 2600/7800 game + manual onto an MMC card (only 32M is necessary, and most of that is for the 7800 games) and put that into this "cartridge", which, much like HDLoader for the PS2, gives you a menu of all your games, letting you pick which one you want to play.
Without having to find a cartridge.
I still have my 7800. I typically hook up 2600s so as not to wear the 7800 out, but goddamn, if I had one of these it would be hooked up this weekend.
