It's called "PR Spin".   If EA admitted to leaving the settings in the 
open, right in the .py files, they'd be admitting they were complete 
idiots, and I'm sure everyone would second guess thier thoroughness. 
Whoever wrote this doesn't have a fucking clue server admins even exist 
- as far as he's concerned, paint EA as the sole source of servers, 
label everything else as run by hackers, unverified, unranked, etc., and 
create a sense of fear for the casual nooblet to need to stick with big 
brother EA to be safe.

I have two words for them at this point:   Suck cock

Andreas, I'm sure you're sifting through this, and no disrespect 
intended toward you or the dev team, but damn - someone needs to stand 
up and put a kabosh on this bullshit, or just get out entirely.

Sorry for my anger and language here guys, it's just I thought for a 
moment we were dealing with Valve.
