I was just reading this article on Cracked.... (I should probably put in a warning about NSFW and "adult language"... wait, I did say it was on Cracked already.)
Network issues due to mishandled demand? TOS getting in the way of user experience? Bland status messages that tell you nothing except that the problem is being worked on? Service crashing because of something someone else did on a different server? Problem's supposed to be fixed, when it's still going on? Does any of this sound... vaguely familiar?
I read the whole thing, and all the while a little voice in my head was saying, "Welcome to our world.... sucker."
