Sid Meier’s Colonization: Is it offensive enough?

This piece is profoundly annoying on its own merits. I find it hard to believe that the author is so genuinely offended by Sid Meier’s Colonization, a game which should keep you too busy doing thankless micromanaging to experience the “guilt” the author describes. But what really drives it over the edge for me is his misuse of the abbreviation “cf.” (which should only be used when inviting the reader to compare something to something else, and not, as he is using it, as a substitute for see).
