comment Is it known if Mojang is treating home family use of an account as a EULA violation?
@Frank: the thing is that it's not true that legal advice has no right answers. At least no more than how to solve a programming problem. And there are a lot of more subjective sites, like parenting: in fact, legal questions fall on the more objective side of the spectrum. With that being said, what's the problem with this question? It's reasonable and it's useful; he received very good answers. Why close it?

@Frank: so you are saying that non-professional programmers should refrain from answering questions on stackoverflow? Non-professional gamers should refrain from answering questions here? Non-professional pilots should refrain from answering on aviation? This is not how those sites work.

@Frank: we are not lawyers, but we can definitely tell people what we think is legal or not. This doesn't mean that we are necessarily correct, but the same applies to every single post we write here. I think his question is reasonable, why do you want to close it? AFAIK there are no rules forbidding questions regarding legality on stackexchange. And expecting him to hire a lawyer for this is ridiculous!

comment Why does steam keep asking if I'm over 18?
The cookie system, by the way, is not "clever" by any means and provides abyssal user experience should someone misenter their birth date. That, plus the annoyance of the prompt every single time, plus 1/3 of users (!!!) entering a fake birth date is very indicative of how bad of an idea this is.

Cannot be circumvented or gamed? Don't you just have to make up a birth date?

comment Is Angry Birds deterministic?
Guys, this whole discussion is nonsensical. In IT a program is deterministic if every time you run it, without changing the operating system settings, it always gives the same result. So if the program calls rand() it's not deterministic even if the number is not really random; there is no need to go so deep with the meaning of the word. We'll soon end up in a discussion about the existence of free will if we continue to try to go up the chain
