10 years is a long time. Get get get get, get over it. People spend too much of their lives holding grudges.

The cynic in me thinks it's important that Sony be beaten over the head with this thing until kingdom come. It's just a shame this story never spread far beyond tech circles.

The rootkit scandal isn't a small matter. It's a serious act of irresponsible anti-consumer behaviour, and not one to be forgotten. Ideally someone would have gone to prison for it, but no. It seems reasonable to at least continue to hold a grudge about it, even, yes, after 10 whole years.
