  • Blizzard just went full Disqus. Never, EVER go full Disqus!

    I don't know if anyone here is planning on going to BlizzCon this year, but if you are, DON'T! In order to get your tickets this year, you're REQUIRED to install an app on a smart phone which gives them unprecedented access to your settings and your personal information. Installing the app allows them access to your phone settings, wi-fi/Bluetooth settings, address, phone number, credit card numbers with CVV codes, type of device and your personal location AT ALL TIMES even when your phone is powered down among other things. I never thought I'd see the day when there'd be a more spyware ridden piece of software than the Disqus commenting system or a more evil partnership than Sony and First4Internet, but the Blizzard/AXS partnership has somehow managed to do it.
