  1. There's very little chance of Hillary winning. The polls may show them to be about even, but that's after all the shit Trump has said. At this point, about the only thing he could possibly do to lower his ratings is dragging a baby onto the stage during the debates and raping it in front of the cameras. Meanwhile, Hillarys ratings are built on her maintaining her image despite all the skeletons in her closet. Any little slip-up is gonna cost her. As for question #2, I don't think they should, no. Would be different if we had proportional representation, but with our system, you can
  2. To be honest, I think the title "Community translation" is enough to ensure none will participate.
  3. The whole semantics about what is/isn't censorship aside, basically exactly this.
  4. It's certainly not limited to millenials. http://ncac.org/resource/what-is-censorship The big point here is that depending on the size of the one refusing to distribute certain information, that equals suppression. Take the road example I gave and apply it to the Internet instead. Suppose every single company offering hosting refused to deal with anyone wanting to distribute certain (legal) information. That would effectively remove that information from the Internet - which is quite clearly suppression. And if you're talking about refusal to distribute vs. refusal to make ad revenue
  5. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Censorship disagrees, as do the dictionary definitions. What this doesn't do is impinge on is anyone's right to free speech. To illustrate the problem: Say all roads were owned by one private company. That company one day decides that you may no longer use their roads to transport VNs. Whoops. But ok, let's say they don't own all roads, just most of them - sure, you can go to the guys who own the remaining roads, but you'll be at a severe disadvantage compared to those who can use all roads. Which is to say, at some point (or rather size), the question is whe
  6. Missed that game coming out. I'll read it in Japanese, but great to see it's getting a translation. Actually, if you could use some TLC, I guess I could help with that. There's been a translation out for Dustmania Grotesque for ages, as far as torture goes. No idea about the quality, though. As for femdom - as it happens, MG has an upcoming title focused on that. http://www.mangagamer.com/detail.php?goods_type=1&product_code=187
  7. Just wait until Maggot Baits is released and we'll be able to reassure you that euphoria is really tame (by comparison). Seriously though, just give the trial a go. If you can stomach that, I think you'll be able to enjoy the rest just fine.
  8. Just plan your drinking schedule such that you pass out around the time you want to go to sleep.
  9. Pretty sure they hand out special edition Salt Tengas to all new employees.
  10. If Secret Game does get localized, I wonder whether they'll go for Killer Queen so they can use the existing translation. I'm kinda guessing no, but I sure hope I'm wrong. That would be amazing.
  11. http://www.pcworld.com/article/3100358/windows/you-cant-turn-off-cortana-in-the-windows-10-anniversary-update.html And as far as "Win7 eventually won't be getting any new fixes anymore" goes, yeah, but for security updates that's 2020. Perhaps there'll be more support for Linux by then to make that switch less painful.
  12. Shinsekai yori Shigurui Phantom: Requiem for the Phantom Maybe: Black Bullet, Noir, Saraiya Goyou, Shiki, Texhnolyze Current season: 91 Days, Re:Zero kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu
  13. It's just a DRM. Never used Windows 10 so I couldn't say for sure, but my best guess would be the old SoftDenchi version you previously had doesn't run on Windows 10 so you need to install a new one.
  14. Seems a bit early to say. Does look like they didn't have enough support to do a clean coup, but it's looking pretty likely things are going to get violent.

  16. And now Konami-chan has suddenly started burning (or exploded into gore, it's a bit hard to say) and the world has three quite different images to look at instead of one. That's why tracing is good in a nutshell. Conversely, if neither of those derivative drawings existed, I would be very sad indeed because I happen to like them (well, not really). The argument kinda cuts both ways. Pretty much boils down to the same as the issue of copyright (and even more so patents) in general. iamnoob: I'm aware of the differences, but the basic point stands. But let's make it even simpler
  17. There's the legal aspect and then there's the rest. I can't really speak to the former (although I recall depending on the specific country some of it is indeed legal, very much depending on how long the sample is), but as far as the rest goes... Well, I listen to a lot of music making heavy use of samples, so I'm obviously biased there, too. Still, I just can't see it as a big deal. A few people mentioned scientific works - but in those cases, the important part is not whether you're using someone else's work as the basis of your own, it's whether or not you indicate that fact through pr
  18. There's something to be said about the similarities between sampling (music) and tracing. Both cases can go from "uses a tiny part" to "almost looks/sounds like the original". Where does this something like this fall on that spectrum? Dunno, I can't draw for shit, but it does look pretty different to me, basic pose being the same notwithstanding. But then I quite like the series, so I'm terribly biased here. Edit: Another thing to consider: Are the artists who's works he used losing any money because of it? Don't think they are.
  19. Spend a few hours to read up on the laws in your country, previous cases concerning whatever you're thinking of importing specifically, legal opinions by lawyers, as well as any laws concerning imports. Even if something is legal to own, it may still be illegal to import.
  20. If I feel like it, I'm free to become an alcoholic or gamble all of my possessions away. Changing the scale from one person's life to an entire country doesn't change anything about that since every single person only has one vote. Which is to say there's no difference between one guy throwing his life away or a large group of people deciding to throw their lives away. Any limit or condition put on the ability of the group to decide their fate themselves as they see fit equals doing the same to the ability of a single person to decide their own fate. But even if we disregard that, the fun
  21. What I'm really curious about is how Rooke replaces cheating with strategy in relationships.
  22. That's essentially what I did. +http://www.kanjidamage.com/ for learning kanji.
  23. Yes, this. Very much. I'd also really like to see a second season for Namiuchigiwa no Muromi-san, which seems just about as unlikely.
  24. https://vndb.org/v17972 One of the cutest things in existence.
