Netflix suggests a scary future.

I've had my Netflix account on hold for a while, but once in a while I log in and look over the queue anyway. Today I found a little notice informing me that an unspecified change had occurred with the edition they offer of one movie in the queue, the Kurosawa film of a Dostoevsky novel. Toward the top of the screen above the queue, after an exclamation point graphic, was simply the sentence:
The Idiot has been replaced by a different version.
Having forgotten I had the Kurosawa film in the impractically long list, my first thought was simply, "Well, that's what one could say in November this year if John McCain manages to win."
