You're still going to need a key for "open" beta, so what exactly is the problem?
Because when it comes to open Beta all you'll have to do is sign up and you're in anyway. Unless SE has a different description of "Open Beta". The amount of work involved in handing out the amount of keys they gave out hardly seems worth it for a couple days of testing time.
You're making assumptions that don't even necessarily make a lot of sense. It's possible they'll let any one in, but it's also possible they won't. They are, after all, requiring an application for open beta, so open beta might not mean to S-E what it means to other people.
If Pikko or Vlorsutes want to cry, then they are welcome to cry on my shoulder, because they went through a lot of trouble to get beta keys out to people quickly. Any one else though really wasn't inconvenienced any more than they chose to be inconvenienced. Edited, Aug 23rd 2010 3:54pm by KarlHungis
