Hi Oovee, Spintires is great. Thanks. Unfortunately, it seems that many of us cannot play the game reliably. In fact, some of us cannot play the game which we paid for at all. We think that's a rather terrible state of affairs. As your customers we want you to address the following issues directly and specifically. 1 - Quality Assurance Prioritize stablilizing the core game and fully resolving game-breaking and save-breaking bugs. When you won our investment as customers, you made a promise. It's time to keep that promise. We're going to make the assumption here that this is an issue of company management/priorities. Developers almost universally care about the quality of their work. 2 - Transparency Customers often make speculative and totally unfair assumptions...

Dear Contact Center, We know the drill. We call our (somewhat) favorite service provider to make a change in the account details, service package, or just get a simple answer to that strange billing record. And then, the interrogation ensues - “what are the last 6 digits of your credit card… And your mother’s maiden name…And the street you grew up on? Of course, it is only for authentication purposes...” The thing is that with your complex authentication processes, we customers are left having way too much to remember. We are fed up with the over-reliance on usernames, passwords and “challenge questions.” (What was first your dog’s name?Seriously!) We end up experiencing rejection - and this is MY account we are talking about. The frustration continues to mount as we are...

Dear Jeff Bezos, bezosIn your position, I imagine that you rarely have an opportunity to receive feedback from one of your temporary-contract employees. I thought you should have some input. I hope you find this useful. Having just completed my maximum of eleven months of contract work Amazon allows, I thought I would share my thoughts on your practice of hiring a staff that is made up of temporary-contract workers. Although it may seem like the company is saving money — because you don’t have to provide temporary workers with medical coverage or paid vacation time — the revolving door of new hires encourages low quality work, inconsistent productivity and wastes useful resources on training. I joined the X-Ray for TV and Movies development team in its infancy. [“X-Ray for Movies...

Dear Morrissey, In the hope that you might consider bringing your much-rumoured memoir to The House of Eliot, I am posting this letter on the Faber website. Forlorn as this hope may be, I can only fantasise that at least you might read my letter through and consider the pleasures and prestige of being an author at Faber, the last great family-owned independent publishing house in the western hemisphere. I have been trying to persuade you of the virtues and wisdom of this for some years now. You probably won’t remember. We even corresponded at one point via a friend of yours, an author of mine, most famous for his biography of Roxy Music which ends just as the band are getting together. You see, we love the perverse and the contrary at Faber. And we also like to think we are the...

We believe that everyone, no matter what gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, religion or disability has the right to play games, criticize games and make games without getting harassed or threatened. It is the diversity of our community that allows games to flourish. If you see threats of violence or harm in comments on Steam, YouTube, Twitch, Twitter, Facebook or reddit, please take a minute to report them on the respective sites. If you see hateful, harassing speech, take a public stand against it and make the gaming community a more enjoyable space to be in. Thank you Andreas Zecher

Hi Sam! Thanks for taking the time to read this letter. As fellow YouTubers, we have much respect for others who put so much hard work into building their channel. It’s not easy, and you should be proud! That said, we’ve noticed that in your success, there has been a lack of respect in return…namely, for women and girls. You may have noticed that your latest video “Fake Hand Ass Pinch Prank” has garnered considerable negative attention. In this video, you sexually violate a number of unsuspecting women on the street, many of whom are visibly confused and upset at being touched by you without permission. One woman even says “I don’t like that!” while you proceed to laugh and touch her more. In “How to Make Out with Strangers”, made a year ago, you pressure women on camera to...

We believe this new arrangement, which will see The Open broadcast live on Sky with prime-time highlights on the BBC, will allow golf’s oldest championship to maintain its position as one of the world’s premier sporting events. I want to express my gratitude to the BBC, our trusted broadcast partner for 60 years. Our relationship developed through The Open’s renaissance in the early 1960s, golf’s boom years in the 1970s and 80s and more recently the height of its global appeal during the 90s and 2000s. We are delighted that the BBC remains a broadcast partner of The Open Championship for 2017 and beyond and, we hope, for a great many years to come. “We have considered this new agreement extremely carefully and firmly believe that by working with the two leading sports...

Dear Steve Carell, You were pure genius in “Little Miss Sunshine” (one of my all time favourite films), my brother became obsessed with you after “Anchorman”, I wanted to marry you or have you adopt me after “Crazy Stupid Love”, I hated that guy you played in “The Way Way Back”, and then you were mindblowing in “Foxcatcher” and I think you’re so awesome and now you are wearing #HeForShe cufflinks at the Oscars to support gender equality. Couldn’t be more proud. Thank You. Love Emma x

Dear Jimmy Kimmel, You've trolled humankind for years, but let's focus on the acts that have most recently infected the web. It was clear you found your YouTube groove last April when you humiliated interviewed Coachella fans in "Lie Witness News." The subsequent series followed a similar formula, exploiting high-brow fashionistas and overly eager digital savants. We get it, tropes are funny (albeit insanely obvious). We laughed anyway, because no one likes a know-it-all. We met twerk girl, the star of your most perfect prank to date — from the video's poor quality to the unsuspecting upload from "Caitlin Heller" (seriously, giving Daphne Avalon a fake name was brilliant), who just wanted to surprise her boyfriend. Everything but the stunt itself felt so organic that we...

What’s your favorite Woody Allen movie? Before you answer, you should know: when I was seven years old, Woody Allen took me by the hand and led me into a dim, closet-like attic on the second floor of our house. He told me to lay on my stomach and play with my brother’s electric train set. Then he sexually assaulted me. He talked to me while he did it, whispering that I was a good girl, that this was our secret, promising that we’d go to Paris and I’d be a star in his movies. I remember staring at that toy train, focusing on it as it traveled in its circle around the attic. To this day, I find it difficult to look at toy trains. For as long as I could remember, my father had been doing things to me that I didn’t like. I didn’t like how often he would take me away from my mom, siblings...
