I've never heard of this before, but my life is now complete since I have lost the game.

There's so many reasons it rocks. For one thing, it's generically named. This is the sort of thing that would have become a secret society type of thing (like Discordians who laugh at people who don't know what "Fnord" means), yet the point of the game is actively against that. It's to spread to everyone everywhere and conscript them into playing whether they like it or not.

The best way to announce loss of the game, IMHO:

"isn't it true that when the prime minister of the u.k. declares on national television that he has lost the game, the game officially ends?

least, that's the rule where i live."

It's hilariously self referential, gloriously unsecretive, and viciously gripping.

And, by the way, you all lose. 8) Now go forth and make others lose 8)

So, judging by the rant I'm hearing and the reactions I'm reading on the web, I fail to see where the RIAA is being particularly soul sucking. They were going after some guy who died during the course of the lawsuit.

The RIAA heard about his demise and allowed 60 days for his estate to mourn and get its act together before resuming the lawsuit.

This apparently is generating all kinds of negative publicity and I've heard it claimed that they're dropping the lawsuit. I hope they don't. They feel a crime has been committed and -- however wrong they may be -- they're entitled to pursue that.

Lots of people seem to be making this out as the RIAA going after a dead guy instead of pursuing a suit filed before the guy died.
