Shocking as it is, I believe it's a legal requirement for local authorities in the UK (this error originates from Exeter City Council by the looks of it (useless website, fantastic people if you track them down in person)) to have this sort of feedback system on every single one of their services. For example, if you go to see them in person about a problem, next to the door on the way out is a touch screen featuring the same three faces, asking for feedback. Local authorities are then required to publish the feedback they've received, and how they're listening to the comments (hence the "your comments answered" link).

And for the original poster of that error, go see them in person on Paris Street if you can. The staff are generally helpful (with a few exceptions...)

The employees learned that if you have any suggestions, you should just keep them to yourself.

And I wondered to myself, When management saw that there were very few suggestions and fewer every year, did they then pat themselves on the back and conclude that all the employees must be completely happy and morale was just great? That everyone believed that the way the company was being run was just that best that anyone could possibly imagine? They were, no doubt, then baffled when people quit. If he wasn't happy here, why didn't he talk to someone about the problems? We went out of our way to ASK for suggestions!


Are you discussing China, the DDR or the Soviet Russia?

He's discussing companies. Companies are the same in capitalist countries as in communist countries. (So are governments.)

In capitalism it's man against man, but in communism it's the other way around.

Actually to clear that error from steam, right click the game in the Library, go to Properties and then click on the Local Files tab. Then click Verify Game Cache. Once that completes, you should be able to play the game. Got this one myself and found the solution on the steam forums

"So how do people like the website?"

"We haven't had any complaints."
Here's xkcd's obligatory quotation from tdwtf.
