UPDATE April 23, 2009: After getting the inappropriate comment on this article from Slide this morning, my wife and I have decided to quit the game. It’s over. Any links to our SuperPoke Pets sites are no longer active and should be considered dead. Why should we pay for that sort of attitude from a company? We’re voting with our wallets and the answer is “No thank you.”
I enjoy playing Slide.com’s SuperPoke Pets and I’ve raved about SuperPoke Pets and ranted about SuperPoke Pets. Today, I am enraged — not by the game I have come to love — but rather by the lack of an artful and loving Slide.com technical response to what should have been a simple problem to solve. This is the story of a false accusation — an unfair incarceration of character if you will — and its ultimate unraveling in the light of indisputable, human, facts.
