@pandabear: I thought I was reading something about Nintendo making a statement that any hacked pokemon that are uploaded to their servers may "mysteriously" disappear?

I sincerely hope this is true....

@pandabear: Well, that's what I'm asking. What is YOUR opinion on the matter; it's simply trying to get a conversation going.

I'll give mine then, cheating does involve a breach in trust and like Clonedzero trust is a cornerstone of any relationship, be it romantic or otherwise. Cheating to me says "I think I can get away with it and I don't respect you or your feelings," it's basically a giant fuck you. To put a wrinkle on the subject, what if we were on a "break," it depends what kind of break we were taking. What if there are kids involved? For me, as a guy without kids and in an ongoing relationship, I just see it as a matter of respect. I respect you and your feelings and I hope I get the same respect back. If you wanna bang another dude, go ahead, but let's end it so that I may not have a romantic relationship based on lies.

I emphasized the monogamous aspect of this question because obviously in more complex types of relationships, this becomes an even grayer area. Neither am I talking about fuck buddies.

But you're talking about hypothetical situations. You need to give specifics here. Not trying to sound antagonistic, and hey as a general rule it's a very bad sign and yes it should end a relationship. But there's not one perfect rule.

This obviously happened to you.... what are the details? (nothing sordid, just the facts)

Nope. If it happened once, it will happen again. Don't be a doormat.

fuck random people's opinions.

Agreed, random person.

How ironic on a few levels.

If that's all you do why bother installing Windows 8?

Are they sorry? Can you forgive them? Can you actually forgive them? What has change in the relationship to make sure it doesn't happen again? Who was the person? Why them? When? How often? Do you love them? How long have you been together? Is there a relationship worth saving?

Details. Work out the details. Some stay together and move on, some stay together and resent the cheater, some break up and regret it, some break up and feel better. There's no black and white... people cheat. What happens after is up to them... fuck random people's opinions.

Perfectly. Attacking and moving is responsive and given higher priroty than animation. It rewards creativity and learning while ensuring you can fall back on simpler moves if you need to. It is, in my opinion, the greatest character action game ever made.

Sounds like he's some kind of legal expert by day and a purveyor of boot-leg T-shirts by night.

Yeah, I actually remember a case like this from law school, where a picture of a boat had been flipped horizontally and then put on a t-shirt, and the Court found that the was no infringement specifically because it was 'sufficiently transformative'. IIRC the colours had been changed as well, so that's a bit different, but.......the dude might be 'legally' in the clear (copyright law is super fucked up right now). Still super shitty.

Really? Geez ... but still. This guy is profiting off the death of a person. Someone that worked at a big multinational corporation no less. If I had any hacking skills I'd take his site down... at the very least I can send him a dubious executable file and hope he opens it. I'll promise free money and penis enlargement...

I trade shit and I get shit. But that's ok, it's kinda fun really.

My biggest concern is getting hacked Pokemon. You can make them on your iPhone now and transfer them to your 3DS... any level or stats. I'd rather have a 20% complete Pokedex with 100% real Pokemon. Hope it doesn't fuck the tournaments
