fumanstan, it's all psychological. You yell "DDoS"; everybody says, "Huh? What?" You yell "hack", and we've got a panic on our hands on the 25th of December.

Fucker!

The misuse of terms leads to consumer confusion.

And like I said, outrage over service availability is a given, but nothing I can control. Correcting people on the right description can be controlled.

Coke/Pepsi isn't really apt. Pop
It would be as if I hired 100 guys to constantly dial your telephone number so that you couldn't receive your normal calls and everybody started calling me a hacker.

Improper usage does have negative effects. I see people getting scared because they read about all these "hacks" and think their information has been stolen.

It says I had 257 hours, but I've hardly played at all. This must count Netflix viewing. My daughter uses it for that regularly.

237 here. And my most played game was Mass Effect 2 on 360 . At least I played 1% of their top games. And yeah, that can't be all game time either because the XB1 is our Amazon steaming box for the basement.

On average the community spent 10 hours on Halo 5? Doesn't that seem pretty low?

1084!

Doesn't seem close to correct, especially since I primarily play on the PS4 and do all my online gaming on that system. I'm sure it must be counting all the time my son plays Minecraft and Transformers on the 360 and the many, many times I forget to turn the XO off at night and just let it power itself down.

137 hours. Does that mean I lose, or win?

854 hours here and there's no way that's right. I guess I need to be better about shutting the thing down when I walk away.

Those steam-powered Xboxes were so unreliable.

Hrmmmm. I'm at 720. That has to include my Hulu and Amazon Instant.

I rose up on my gamerscore by 8,245. That's right. I did play Black Flag a lot. Supposedly that's my most played game. And the 30th of May was my most active day. I think I was finishing out achievements for Black Flag around that time.

2637 hours...Most of that is probably twitch in the background, though I do feel like I've upped my gaming time this year.

Only raised My GS by 4655 though.

Also a member since 1900...damn you Y2K!!! You've finally defeated at least one computer system!
