Miky- I assumed they'd invested in a cloud server to hold the plethora of games they host. Such a server, at their provider, has unmetered traffic. That would have been the first thing I did.
Rusky- The major fallacy was "you have no idea what goes on internally."

Serp and those concerned- I imagine they are using that technique. If you remember, that's what really set my hat on fire (Fred's outright anti-support for the idea until Sandy made clear they were going to make off with it).

Err, you don't. How is that a fallacy?

Special pleading is a form of spurious argumentation where a position in a dispute introduces favorable details or excludes unfavorable details by alleging a need to apply additional considerations without proper criticism of these considerations themselves. Essentially, this involves someone attempting to cite something as an exemption to a generally accepted rule, principle, etc. without justifying the exemption.

...

  • assertion that the opponent lacks the qualifications necessary to comprehend a point of view

Example: I know you think that I should be giving my money to the poor, but you've never been rich before. There are things about wealth that you don't understand.

In this case,
You don't work for Yoyo. You don't understand. :(

Uh, no.

Yoyo is not the most competent of companies. We all agree on that.

But you can stop bashing them whenever you mention them now.

Besides, there is something to the "you don't understand" thing. You have never attempted to run a company, much less a startup. Hasn't everything on Enigma so far been free (labor, hosting, etc.)?

I've never worked for YoYo before either, so I don't know any more than you. I fail to see how that is a fallacy, although I agree with the wikipedia example.

They could probably save space by using Josh's GMzip's technique. Integrate it into the browser plugin, and they'd lower bandwidth too. Perhaps that's how they already go about it? I'd hope

Also, Retro, why are you talking about compiling bash scripts?
bash applications, meaning, applications that run under bash

probably the wrong term; they're really just unix applications

Miky--
Roughly $140 has gone in, $100 has come out. That puts me at as big a loss as Yoyo, percentage wise. XD

Rusky--
Take an upper-level philosophy course; you'd be hard-pressed to find one that won't teach you about fallacies.

Oh, so I can't understand fallacies because I haven't taken a class?

All you need is ignorance and confidence and the success is sure.

Being likely to learn about fallacies when taking a class does not imply being unlikely to understand them already.

So what's the point of telling me I should take a class? I'm sorry, but it's a fact that Josh does not work at YoYo, unless he's been lying. He does not know everything Sandy and Mark do. That is in no way a fallacy.

Suggesting that I don't know everything Sandy and Mark do is not the fallacy; using that to suggest that my claims that they are inefficient are invalid is where the fallacy is.

I said "you really have no basis for judgement." You don't really know what they're paying for, so you don't know if they can pay for it with just their advertising revenue.
