Seb this is not true. You do not have to register your articles to have the copyright for them.

EDIT: I just noticed that you might have meant that you have to put that little © at the end of the text. You don't need to do that to retain all rights for your text similar to not needing to write seb47 on your car for retaining ownership of it.

Quoted so that the OP doesn't get buried by copyright arguments.

If what you say is true (and I have no reason to disbelieve you TwoGun), then as you say, there is a thread of deceit and dishonesty running through that place.

I took up one of their deposit offers a few months ago to get $50 free ($1k deposit) + a couple of decent level tourney tickets. I then had to jump through hoops to get the tickets, and later saw that basically they were just giving entries into Gtd. tourneys, so they had very little to lose anyway - in fact it was an -EV situation for those who paid the entry fees. I have had two more matching telephone offers since, and I have declined to take them up - I guess I ain't a bonus whore anymore...

However it turns out, they have one of the worst CS departments ever. GG Absolute.

P.S. This kind of thing is why people play at PS, regardless of competition. Good CS rules for most casual players, and for many serious players too.
Let your plans be dark and impenetrable as night, and when you move, fall like a thunderbolt.


I get a penny here and there - it's like a flock of doves left and each of them pooped 1c into my account.

What the medications can't do - let Floyd do the rest.

*sigh* Used to be a good site.
