I don't know how many times I have to say this until it sinks in:

THERE WERE SOME PEOPLE WHO CHOSE TO STAY, EVEN THOUGH THEY HAD THE CAPABILITY TO GET OUT.

Now - in that all-caps sentence, did you see anything implied that "all" people who stayed, chose to stay? Did you see anything implied that "most" people who stayed, chose to stay?

Respond to what I say please, and not to what you interpret.

I'll point out, that even now, after the storm is over, the troops are in, there are SOME people who STILL refuse to leave. Even though rescuers are knocking on their doors with boats at the ready, practically begging them to leave.

My opinion stands: Those who CHOSE to stay (as opposed to those who couldn't leave) are now seeing the results of their inaction.

A Cross post from TMC, since it relates to this thread (it was my post):

dead, and homeless - etc.

In light of that - we are donating a potion of sales this
month to the Red Cross, and also giving customers a 10%
credit of whatever they have personally donated, towards
next months hosting fees.

Get involved guys - people in this community were affected
by this tragedy, and next time, it could be you needing
the help.

Remember - what goes around, comes around. A good time to
do something good for someone else. Hate to sound preachy
and all, but - oh well

Nuff said above. And please - save the flamebait about corporate this and that for some other time

Care to team up with us again this time, Matt? (if you haven't
already - I didn't check the whole thread )

So how does this potion of sales work?

Does the player drink it and cause money to be donated to the Red Cross?

So, you don't care if they die!? They don't realise the consequences of there decision. When, they see the storm they will regret there decision, I assure you. They should be dragged out of the country.

Well, that's what I believe. I also believe you're sick minded. No one deserves to die, no one. They made the wrong decision, and they will see that once they see the storm.
