"Good morning, Pooh Bear," said Eeyore gloomily. "If it is a good morning," he said. "Which I doubt," said he.

Seriously, Gandalf. I can't believe that you called the man "dumb" for objecting to a scheme that left him unable to play a game he legitimately owns.

I emphatically disagree that it's in any way wrong to object without suggesting an alternative.

It is the publisher/programmer's responsibility to see that their copy protection scheme does not inflict harm on the legitimate consumer.

After all, copy protection is the publisher's need, not the consumer's need. Accomodating that need should be at the publisher's expense, not the consumer's expense.

SFI still has a lot to learn about keeping customers happy. They would be wise to read from the book of Shrapnel on customer service and satisfaction.

However SFI has been very kind and willing to improve so I am sure if they knew there was a problem they would address it.
