Nothing wrong with it at all. If companies are going to force me to buy a disc that I cannot play and thus have no use for, I will happily sell it on and get back some of that money. If you must insist on selling me two copies of the same thing, then I'd rather have DVD + digital, thanks.

I completely agree.

What's the deal with the bot parking option? Confused

I'm going with "not unethical".

Bots, or programs that pretend to be people, default to choosing the first option on these polls, so users who create the polls make joke answers for the first poll option so as to get results that aren't completely skewed and useless.

It is, perhaps, a bit disconcerting that the top choice was chosen the most, but I have to assume some of those votes were from people as jokes.

Or there are a hell of a lot of spambots on this forum.

That would be really disconcerting to me, and perhaps ironic considering the fact that we're discussing ethics in a digital age. Forgive me, though, I don't mean to be too off topic.
