which is the last link in the submission. I'm an EFF member and re-upped last month and couldn't be prouder and their reasons are all sound.

You have the only browser out of 26601 with this fingerprint.
Okay. Now what? Also 26601 "browsers" doesn't sound like a lot when you're talking about potential billions. Not a big sample. But what do you do now? I have my browser set to remember nothing, so you can't really track cookies across sites well or whatever.
Also if you know anything about him he was a carpenter on the original Star Wars set not even an actor. He's a running example of winning a life long lottery for dumb luck.

No. Fuck their extortion. Adblock EDGE (the non-corporate-sellout fork of Adblock Plus) is more than enough thanks. If/when that stops working I'll use hosts (laziness makes the plug-in easier).
Fuck ads always and forever. This bullshit is worse than facecrook, "Hey, I have this great idea that will get people to PAY for us to track them!"
Don't be evil; indeed.
By the way if anyone here is in advertising or marketing â¦ kill yourself.
No, no, no itâ(TM)s just a little thought. Iâ(TM)m just trying to plant seeds. Maybe one day, theyâ(TM)ll take root - I donâ(TM)t know. You try, you do what you can.
Seriously though, if you are, do.
Aaah, no really, thereâ(TM)s no rationalization for what you do and you are Satanâ(TM)s little helpers.
Okay - kill yourself - seriously.
You are the ruiner of all things good, seriously.
No this is not a joke, youâ(TM)re going, âoethereâ(TM)s going to be a joke coming,â thereâ(TM)s no fucking joke coming.
You are Satanâ(TM)s spawn filling the world with bile and garbage.
You are fucked and you are fucking us.
Itâ(TM)s the only way to save your fucking soul, kill yourself.

"The rules prohibited ISPs from interfering with internet traffic, except as a last resort, and urged them to instead combat network congestion with âoeeconomic measuresâ such as new investment or usage limits.
Those limits have resulted in relatively low monthly caps for Canadians, but the rules have kept neutrality violations to a minimum."
If given the choice between investing in infrastructure and usage limits what do you think American ISPs would do?
Also, all the speed in the world doesn't do much good with low caps.
I don't read his long articles, generally speaking, but he has been an advocate against censorship and I respect that much.
No one makes anyone read the articles, and without even checking, I'd guess you can configure
The Haselton hate reminds me of the Jon Katz days, which is kind of amusing
doesn't have a monopoly on stupid (especially where gov't is concerned).
and it feels even more true today. Thanks for the repost, I had forgotten about it.
to buy lawmakers and "lobbyists". Where is the anti-rebate money going to come from? Exactly.
thanks to sales tax I can get the same thing (most of the time) cheaper from elsewhere (like NY) (although I've also had serious issues with both Amazon and Newegg's business practices/customer service - personally).

It'll be the new pulling the fire alarm/calling in bomb threat (taken way too seriously these days) =)
Looks like WoW themed Team Fortress 2 to me. Maybe they want in on that sweet sweet F2P money without letting their cash cow out of the pasture.
