It seems to be an unfortunate truth that individually people are pretty
collectively they are vile!
I agree. That seams to be a universal flaw of the human race.
Especially, in a ccorperate environment where very few people actually
do all the decision making.
I have to say between my communications with Lucas Licensing and my
talks with Sony Entertainment I have become totally disgusted and lost
all respect for big name corperations of any kind. Any time I have a
valid concern, issue, suggestion, etc I get blocked by some peon
guarding the gates to the castle. All they will say is thanks for your
e-mail, phone call, but we can't let you speak to so and so for such and
such regulation bla, bla, bla.
This seems to absolutely hold true for game access. The larger the
less response we get, where as I've had some great conversations with
or small groups of games about access issues.
Been there done that. Main reason is major companies have hired a bunch
of flunkies to man the phones, e-mail, who's job must be to discurrage
contact with them. The minute you mention access issues with the large
companies they thank you for your suggestion and say whatever to get you
off the phone as soon as possible. The more honest ones come out and
tell you legally they can't take suggestions for their products and
services and give you the big kick in the pants to get lost.
In my experience smaller companies and definitely the open source
comunity are more willing to at least here you out. On Linux if i file a
bug someone looks into it fairly rapidly. If I make a suggestion someone
on the development team will state if it is possible, feasable, or at
least seriously consider my request. I don't feel major corperations do
