The number of people playing at the same time.

The bigger question is, would Palestine be Horde or Alliance?

Trust me guys, Diablo III's DRM is a deal breaker.  Stick to the classics.

Now that I think about it, Palestine isn't very good at PvP...so definitely Horde.

No, it's still there. They've merged many of the servers but they just released yet another expansion late last year.

It looks like the 19th expansion was released about 5 months ago. I'm shocked...I don't know anyone that plays EQ anymore, and I know a lotta nerds.

Back in the day I used to play.  I think I was on Vishan?  Can't remember as I let the subscription expire over a decade ago.  It was slightly amusing and a decent game at the time and I had joined one of the guilds, mostly to have other folks to team up with.  Damn if that didn't turn into a constant butthurt festival of he said she said nonsense.

All I wanted to do was spend a night or so playing, have some wine with it, and be silly while killing shiat.

The guy the quoted sounds like an angry middle-child describing why daddy spent more time with the older Bro:

"He surprised us with his speech last night with just how much he flattered Israel, going on and on about its security," said Hussein Shujayia, 26. "What about us? There's no place for us in their arrogant pro-Israel policies."

I think those Palestinian protesters have a friend in America who also thinks Obama has no place for them... and cries about it similarly.

Because someone who noticed the Jew-hate before the Nazi party emerged must obviously have caused it.

I understand the appeal of MMORPGs, but the idea of having to mediate real human conflict while trying to do wizard shiat is nerve-wracking to me. Skyrim makes more sense to me because I like my wizard games as I like my women: heavily glitched and unable to acknowledge quests I've completed.

What's funny is that the Palestinians would execute Thrall for his past "collaboration" with Jaina Proudmoore.

Oh, sounds like he's starting to understand American politics.


Actually, he sounds like more and more people in the region. They're all waking up to the fact that nothing changes based on an American president's visit. Oslo was brokered by Clinton, but all of the heavy lifting had to be done by Arafat and Rabin. All of the other deals brokered by the US since then have been cease-fires of one kind or another, while the more concrete actions (Israel's withdrawal from Gaza, withdrawal from the DMZ in Southern Lebanon, the Palestinian elections) were done in-house.

// of course, nothing's going to get done while both sides antagonize each other because of the last time they antagonized each other in response to belligerence from the others...

I played up until last Dec. when they put in player levels and decided that I wasn't entitled to the 4 million plat I'd spent 12 years earning.

I'm pretty sure you didn't understand the topic of the debate.

I'm pretty sure you haven't played both games.

Stop whining Palestinians, and get with the program. Clearly all you need to do is overrun American banking, media and law with your foreign agents, bribe everybody who matters and use the news to torpedo anyone who won't be bought. It's a free country!

So, what did "cause it", then?

And on the whole, would you say that Political Zionism has been a "good thing"?

Good for the Jews of Israel?

Good for the Jews as a whole?

Good for the Palestinians?

Good for the world at large?

Why or why not?
