life is continually disappointing

Various free online 'RPGs' continue to try and mimic crap-Evony-ripoff's success at softcore porn advertising. I just saw one that consists of a girl in a leather bikini tied to a tree, bosom heaving. How heroic.

I wouldn't complain if the games actually WERE porn, mind. Truth in advertising, please!

As it is, though, it sends some clear messages about what sort of players they want...

I've seen that! I thought it was another Evony ad and I just passed over it without really looking.

Wouldn't most people who see that be like me and associate it with Evony? I don't even bother looking at the title that's there anymore when I see ads like that. They're all Evony as far as I'm concerned. :\

Google have issued a statement that their email system has been hacked by the Chinese, possibly using malware placed on people's computers. Browser games put client software on tens of millions of computers and could easily be used to farm for information such as email addresses. This article looks at the evidence.
