Re: Net Neutrality

The FCC imposing and verifying compliance with "rules that prohibit carriers from variably pricing broadband based on the origin of data" is not different in any meaningful way from "telling private businesses what they're allowed to charge for the goods and services they provide." These are just tw...

Re: Market Bubbles

It would be interesting if Limit Theory could be used to teach students why certain regulations help an economy while others hurt it. Or even just have Limit Theory be the test bed for simulating various forums of government and how long each type lasts before burning out. Then have the ability to ...

Re: Market Bubbles

Abusively sub-optimal socioeconomic systems are well within the range of possible systems that we might expect to see generated in a highly procedural universe. yeah, like completely unregulated free market capitalism /me runs That you think I'd disagree that "completely unregulated free market cap...

Re: Morrowind

Awwwwwwww. This is awesome!

I use what's-her-name's place in Balmora. I should load that up and get a screenshot; the place is crammed to the ceiling with all the loot I've collected (that I haven't sold before realizing I could summon and murder Golden Saints for soul gems....),

Re: Net Neutrality

Tal, nothing I've said was intended in a condescending way. If anything came across that way, that wasn't my intention. I've spent hours that I should have been sleeping laying out a detailed factual/rational basis for the FTC-regulation position. You may disagree with those points, but what they ha...

Re: Net Neutrality

It's sort of a done deal now -- until/unless Congress does what it actually should have done and encode a choice as explicit legislation -- but I hope a couple additional points are OK. (I can't stand people who spike the ball after a goal; I'm not doing that here. These are just a few last thoughts...

Re: Market Bubbles

preference of other players Did someone say sliders? :squirrel: :ghost: Heh. A "Gameplay <----+----> Simulation" slider, if more than just a meta-slider (controlling the state of other sliders), would be something. Actually, the nearly full form of such a thing would IMO look more like this: https:...

Re: Market Bubbles

Welcome, Schokotod! Interesting comment. Because Limit Theory is a game that has some simulated economy features in it, rather than a economic simulation that happens to be fun, there's maybe a question you might want to consider before getting too deep into specifics: open or closed economy? In oth...

Re: Net Neutrality

Flat, for what is now the third or fourth time, that's not what net neutrality means . It's not about charging Netflix more for using more data - that's already the case for both content providers and content and is never illegal. It's also not about the government controlling prices for data outri...

Re: Net Neutrality

A few days ago Ajit Pai mocked everyone that supported net neutrality, and joked about being a Verizon shill. He's corrupt, and knows it's quite obvious he's corrupt, and he's even willing to flaunt that fact because he's sure of "victory" and doesn't care what the public thinks about him. Tal, I t...
