I'm guessing you haven't worked for a corporation. This is how they work 
inside. No matter what you know, you dare not leak it out until someone in 
power says it's ok. And it's not just a CYA thing about the profit. There 
are stupid laws governing how corporations operate, many passed in panic 
after Enron-like debacles that have no connection with reality but make 
legislators look like they're "doing something" about the problem.

Ideally we should all switch to supporting small indy developers but it's 
harder to get customers for your servers if they don't see the game 
plastered all over the game magazines, and that takes Big Corporation ad
