This is the best response of all of them.

Sad thing is I’m sure you’re right. SoE’s letter would read,

“Hey sheep. EQ2 has been deleted cause someone spilled Cristal on the servers while banging a hooker you paid for. We will not be restoring the game or the data, go play something else we made. Also, to recoup lost profits, we have sold your credit card information to Russian mobsters.

Go F yourselves,

Sony Customer Service.

P.S. We have charged you $25.00 for the hassle of us sending this letter.”




Man I hope that all of my BT books dont get deleted so I will never be able to play BT ever again. :P
Why argue if the glass is half full or half empty, when you know someone is going to knock it over and spill it anyways.

I was a Major *pain* before
But I got a promotion.
I am now a General *pain*
Yay for promotions!!!

After the first fiasco where some script kiddies used basic DDOS attacks/SQL injection to gain Sony's user's credit card and account information, I would not be surprised if they acted that way.

Don't worry, hopefully you bought physical copies (real books) and not PDF files ...

Electronic files are easier to protect.

In 2007, after writing for BT for 5 years, my laptop's hard drive died horribly. (My last back-up was in 2005. A specialist recovery firm offered to recover 7% of the files for $1100. Gmail let me recover most of my critical BT files, but...)

From this, I learned to be more cautious. I have an external back-up drive, and my next laptop (2008) had twin hard drives. I now back-up my critical files across twin hard drives; an external media/back-up computer; and SD chips, some located over 100 miles apart. It would take a dino-killer or lots of nuclear weapons to ruin all of them.

Meanwhile, my large book collection is in one location and I can't back it up nearly so easily.
