RTFL: Read The Freakin' License

After seeing this license agreement for the first time in a long long time I decided to say "hell no!" and delete the installation files. The installer was for a "free" FPS game called PRISM. But still, I shouldn't be surprised... it's a game sponsored by the US Army National Guard ;) Most probably came from the budget of the Patriot act (or some other citizen control law) :P

The moral: Read the F@#$%^ license agreement...
