What's the deal with sellers selling repo labels that don't read reprinted or repo label?

    I couldn't name a member here actively involved in piracy/counterfeiting, it' more of something that is discussed and cheered. Look at anyu discussion of a rare game that is 'repro'd, like MUSHA. There is no shortage of cheering by members here of repro rare games being sold on ebay.

    Any game that is pricey and rare seems to the hooray counterfeit crowd all riled up for fakes, like Battlesphere, MUSHA, loads of SNES game...to many to list really. I may have sounded like Atari Age was involved with it directly, which is not the meaning of my words

    This sounds more like an overall problem with communities surrounding these individual consoles than anything AtariAge-related. I know many people here have spoken against the various Battlesphere reproductions, and I have personally removed posts advertising such reproductions. It definitely seems to be more tolerated with some consoles, though. I'm sure it's easy to pick some specific examples of individuals "cheering" on reproductions, but I don't think it's fair...

    Oh, I would have loved that. How often does a sealed game from that early in the Atari 2600 cycle come up to auction? Would love to know, too, what catalog was in it...I would just buy that.

    A great role for McCauly Culkin... they didn't make him an exaggerated cartoon character, he's just a normal kid, probably the best role he ever played.

    No need to look him up when he's been in a number of movies, TV shows & commercials. Host of "American Grit" & big supporter of the Make-A-Wish foundation. I could care less about him or that girl but won't pretend to not know.

They never show The Three Stooges colorized film shorts on TV. The colorized versions look pretty good.

    I forgot what I saw a few weeks ago on TV, but they had orange skin and gray teeth thanks to 1980s technology. If those Three Stooges were done in 2004-2006, I bet they look 5,000 times better.

    I think the colorized shorts were done for the DVD's since they put in 2004 as the copyright year in the title card.

    Also, the colorized versions of Punch Drunks & Men In Black remind me of the 3 Stooges game on the Amiga...

    Zuckerberg should have protected the data no question, but how about blaming Cambridge Analytica? They stole the data in the first place and/or used it for purposes other than what they claimed. Thankfully (at least) 2 state prosecutors are looking into them...
