Put down the pitchforks, folks. It was a joke. I was just playing along with PA’s commentary. The flood of email was incredible. I was surprised to see that so many people thought that such an apprehension of rights as proposed by the Penny Arcade gang was even possible (or legal), not to mention that my reaction to it would have been so passive.
It was a joke, and most of you fell for it. There is no need to send hatemail to Penny Arcade. There is no need to boycott Penny Arcade, or to write your congressmen. Tycho and Gabe are not the devil. We were just joking around. It’s sort of what we do for a living.
Your regularly scheduled Winter-een-mas post will be up later this evening.
