It's not floating, per se (is that right? i dunno how to use it. tying to look smart :x)

It's really sinking. If you sink down to to your warez repository, I, a former torrent mad warezer (not to worry, i didn't warez Darwinia - got it as a gift) probably knows where you got Darwinia.

On TPB (former piraters should know. there's relatively nice people there) numerous commenters said on the torrent:
do you know how hard this develpoer hav had to get this game a publisher in the first place??? do them a favor and support small undependent game developers by buying the game instead.... i mean plz, there is a limit to what you can download whith a good conscience...
Enjoying it so much I've bought it.

Dr4g0n, you really don't have the brains to fill an eggcup. Go and rot in a corner somewhere, rid us of your stupidity.

I've said this before and I'll say it again:

If I ever see you round here again, I'll track your IP address, send in the bouncers and have them tear your fingernails out and then rub salt on the bleeding flesh.

You're an idiot.

A moron of the highest order. You're so stupid it's a wonder you can remember to breath. Intelligent ideas bounce off your head as if it were coated with teflon. Creative thoughts take alternate transportation in order to avoid even being in the same state as you. If you had an original thought it would die of loneliness before the hour was out.

On an intelligence scale of 1 to 10 (10 corresponding to the highest attainable IQ) you're rating is so far into negative numbers that one would need to travel into another quantum reality in order to even catch a distant glimpse of it. Your personality is that of a rabid Chihuahua intent on destroying its own tail. Your powers of observation are like that of the bird who keeps slamming into the picture window trying to get that other bird it keeps seeing. You are walking, talking proof that you don't have to be sentient to survive, and that Barnum was thinking of you when he uttered his immortal phrase regarding the birth of a sucker. You are, at varying times, tedious, boring, earth shatteringly hilarious in your idiocy, childish, moronic, pathetic, wretched, disgusting and pitiful.

You are wholly without any redeeming social grace or value. If God ever decides to give the planet an enema you'd better run like the wind because anywhere you stand is a suitable place for The Insertion. There is no animal so disgusting, so vile that it deserves comparison to you, for even the lowest, dirtiest, most parasitic member of the animal kingdom fills an ecological niche. You fill no niche. To call you a parasite would be injurious to the thousands of honest parasitic species.

You are worse than vermin, for vermin do not pretend to be what it is not. You are truly human garbage. You are a fraudulent, lying, predatory charlatan. You are of less worth than a burnt-out light bulb. You will forever live in shame. You have nothing to say, and Godwin's Law does not apply when writing about you.

You are the anti-Midas, for all that you touch becomes valueless and unusable. Mothers gather their children close when you appear. You are an aberration, a corruption, a boil that needs to be lanced. You are a poison in need of being vomited. You are a tooth so rotten it infects the whole body. You are sperm that should have been captured in a condom and flushed down a toilet. I don't like you. I don't like anybody who has as little respect for others as you do. Go away, you swine.

You're a putrescent mass, a walking vomit. You are a spineless little worm deserving nothing but the profoundest contempt. You are a jerk, a cad, a weasel. Your life is a monument to stupidity. You are a stench, a revulsion, a big suck on a sour lemon. You are a curdled staggering mutant dwarf smeared richly with the effluvia and offal accompanying your alleged birth into this world. Meaningful to no one, abandoned by the puke-drooling, giggling beasts who sired you and then killed themselves in recognition of what they had done.

I will never get over the embarrassment of belonging to the same species as you. You are a monster, an ogre, a malformity. I barf at the very thought of you. You have all the appeal of a paper cut. Lepers avoid you. You are vile, worthless, less than nothing. You are a weed, a fungus, the dregs of this earth. And did I mention you smell? Monkeys look down on you. Even sheep won't have sex with you. You are unreservedly pathetic, starved for attention, and lost in a land that reality forgot. You are a waste of flesh.

You have no rhythm. You are ridiculous and obnoxious. You are the moral equivalent of a leech. You are a living emptiness, a meaningless void. You are sour and senile. You are a disease. You puerile one-handed slack-jawed drooling meatslapper.

On a good day you're a halfwit. You are deficient in all that lends character. You have the personality of wallpaper. You are dank and filthy. You are asinine and benighted. You are the source of all unpleasantness. You spread misery and sorrow wherever you go.

You are a fiend and a coward, and you have bad breath. You are degenerate, noxious and depraved. I feel debased just for knowing you exist. I despise everything about you, and I wish you would go away. I cannot believe how incredibly stupid you are.

The only thing worse than your logic is your manners. Maybe later in life, after you have learned to read, write, study, spell, and count, you will have more success. True, these are rudimentary skills that many of us "normal" people take for granted that everyone has an easy time of mastering. It just wouldn't have been "right". Sort of like parking in a handicap space. I wish you the best of luck in the emotional, and social struggles that seem to be placing such a demand on you.

P.S.: You are hypocritical, greedy, violent, malevolent, vengeful, cowardly, deadly, mendacious, meretricious, loathsome, despicable, belligerent, opportunistic, barratrous, contemptible, criminal, fascistic, bigoted, racist, sexist, avaricious, tasteless, idiotic, brain-damaged, imbecilic, insane, arrogant, deceitful, demented, lame, self-righteous, byzantine, conspiratorial, satanic, fraudulent, libelous, bilious, splenetic, spastic, ignorant, clueless, illegitimate, harmful, destructive, dumb, evasive, double-talking, devious, revisionist, narrow, manipulative, paternalistic, fundamentalist, dogmatic, idolatrous, unethical, cultic, diseased, suppressive, controlling, restrictive, malignant, deceptive, dim, crazy, weird, dystopic, stifling, uncaring, plantigrade, grim, unsympathetic, jargon-spouting, censorious, secretive, aggressive, mind-numbing, arassive, poisonous, flagrant, self- destructive, abusive, and socially-retarded.

How can IV afford to allow the game to be downloaded sans copy protection when their sales are as meager as they claim? I would like very much to see the company survive (and prosper) if only as a symbol of freedom and brilliance in this axe-grinding, conveyor belted, money raking Industry (capital I). IV have shown us a tremendous amount of trust and respect in this decision, but we, the gaming public, cannot be trusted! Too many of us are selfish, greedy children who are unconcerned with the harm we cause. While I was extremely pleased to be able to play my newly purchased game immediately, for IV's sake, I'm baffled by the decision to forgo any type of copy protection system.

Basically, because copy protection just pisses people off and gets cracked almost instantly. The one copy protection system that kinda works is Starforce, but that is EVIL - it installs a driver. IV didn't want to piss their customers off. They were prepared for the flood of warez, but to be honest I bet that would've happened anyway, even if it was delayed slightly.

In addition, there's no copy protection for Linux - UT2004 and Doom 3 lacked copy protection in their Linux versions - offering a loophole even if there was uncracked copy protection :P .
Don't think about The Game.

True enough, but even still I should think that weak protection is better than none at all (even with a Linux backdoor). I mean as it is it's so effortless to pass around (especially given the file size) that I'm afraid younger, more naive gamers (or older, less-honorable gamers) are going to get the idea that it's okay to pass around, even if just to their friends.

You could say there was a good community effort on warez protection. It's called WAREZ_RELEASE.

I bought 2 copies of darwinia today. (one for me and one for my brother)

And I selected euros as currency, because it would have been cheaper both in pounds and dollars.

I think Introversion have well deserved the money.
