Also I highly doubt EA is worse than pharmaceutical companies (making billions off of people suffering curable illnesses and diseases.. Yes, cancer is among them), oil conglomerates (Why are we still on oil?), and other greed-fueled companies.

Whoa friend, I don't have any love for Big Pharma but it takes a lot of balls to say that cancer is a currently "curable" disease given all the research that has gone into it without an answer. I would really like for you to answer this as my mother is currently undergoing chemotherapy and if there is a cure she could just go for that instead. Can you point me to a link? I'm pretty interested in this but I don't hold out much hope that you can point me to anything useful, IMO.

We only know the total amount of votes received during the entire competition.
-The site is a blog, not obliged to be objective in any way.
-Even if EA received 249,970 votes over the course of the competition, that's still a tiny number of people in comparison to the amount of people in America.
-People are idiots to despise the dealings of EA more than banks.

Pretty sure the people in this pole don't have many dealings with banks...

The only reason I could think of why EA was voted #1 is due to their greed and support for measures such as SOPA and online to play single-player games (Origin).

Great support? Is that why my friend who preordered ME3 on Origin, then changed his mind and wanted a physical copy (And cancelled the origin pre-order) got charged twice? And when he asked them about it, they "refunded" him? And when he asked them where the cash was, they disabled ME3? It took him 5 live chat sessions to get it sorted.
EA has horrible customer service, up there with Razer. (Who utterly refused to think my Lycosa was broken when it clearly was)

And not only are they greedy, they also (at one point) treated their employees like crap.
Also, look at SW:TOR forums...Nothing but horrible support. People getting banned for no reason, etc.

Blind hate...? Really? They have horrible support, they milk their games worse than Activision (The Sims 3. As fun as it is, you have to admit two expansion packs, two "stuff packs" and many bits of DLC in the shop is a little over the top) and tend to act like douches in general to their main audience.

Also, Cannabis has been shown to have anti-cancerous properties as well and guess what, that's also illegal. Think about it from a business perspective like them. Why allow a natural non harmful cure to be available when you can just keep pushing out your own drugs to simply treat the symptoms and keep everyone coming back over and over and bringing in money. Bottom line, they would rather keep selling people drugs and raking in millions of dollars instead of having a cure and not making money. A cure for cancer would be devastating for Big Pharma's business.

I feel this year they've done worse than Activision.

Why? Because Activision has simply done nothing.

Cancer isn't a disease its a natural cell mutation in which the telomeres of a cell have become so shortened that the cell mutates rapidly.


Thats #1.. #2 is the guys response about marijuana is so far off base you shouldn't probably concern yourself with arguing about it.
