ADVANCE NOTICE

In support of the SOPA/PIPA Blackout currently being planned by Reddit, Wikipedia, Minecraft.net and other leading web services, the Ginever Service Alliance will not be operating any of its services tomorrow (starting at around 0:00 UTC and lasting approximately 24 hours). Search engines will be issued with 503 errors in order to prevent there from being a significant impact to our page rank.

Apologies will not be provided for the inconvenience, since this blackout is directly intended to inconvenience users in order to bring a wider awareness of SOPA and PIPA to the general public.
Here's me on the scale of caring. I am at zero.

Mojang - "changes for changes sake" should be their new motto. Most of the changes made to Minecraft over the last 18 months have been a pointless waste of time that serve no purpose and are unconstructive.

It was decided at very short notice.
