    @milkman: The release of the surveillance video seems like a character assassination attempt on the part of the police at worst, or an embarrassingly tone deaf and insensitive PR move at best. I can'...

    @Gnubberen: The Yoscast yanking the $50k to fulfill physical rewards seems ok; there's no way the five(?) man Winterkewl team could handle shipping any goods while developing a game. Now, that $100k ...
