I'll admit, it's been a long time since I signed up to the site, so maybe my memory is pretty hazy, but isn't the default alignment Neutral, therefore giving people a grey username in the forums? Do these spam things all really sign up, align themselves with Microsoft and then post useless trash?
I've never really understood the alignment thing, I read once that it was a sort of hold over from Comicvine's format that involved sidekick and nemesis points(?) over there, (I read one line like this once, years ago, so I could be very mistaken.) But I'm sure the default isn't Microsoft, is it?
(I was kind of sleep deprived a few hours ago when I noticed this, and it's been bugging me since I woke up. I posted this in GD instead of OT because it's sort of a question about the site.)
