I have to say I haven't seen much of that, and as you've just registered, maybe neither have you, perhaps because you weren't here seeing it? These people all debated everything long and hard, as did ISI. You also seem to think ISI is a part of some evil empire, please do some research on ISI as a company, or even any of it's history involving the community. ISI shouldn't be held responsible either for you not knowing about activations and the like, I didn't work for ISI back then, and even I knew about that (I only ever used two). Did you even try to contact ISI when you got to five activations? If you had, you'd have been given more... It DID carry on unless the activations happened on different IPs and then it's a little weird for the same person to need to do that... It's a little strange to be judging a company so harshly when the interaction you'd have seems so minimal... In any case... If you purchase, and then can't accept what you've got for your money, ask for a refund. Make a decision and if rF2 isn't what you want, please find something else which fits the budget and requirements you have (just like everything else in life whether it's groceries or a new car). The truth? Either buy the product or don't. The product is what it is, is priced what it is. If you don't like that, you do have a choice you can make which involved not paying anything. Don't buy it. You can't blame someone else for that.
