This. You'd think people who hate the hell out of Steam here on GOG would be more supportive of Origin given the way it works (and shrill internet posts aside, their support is generally really good).
yes, but when you are one of the cool kids, then you are supposed to hate EA with a vengeance. It does not matter what they say, do or make - by default it is to be ridiculed.. This is how the cool kids show how unique and special they are - by automatically and uncritically regurgitating the same mantras as everyone else.
(god, I'm depressed today...)
