I don't know what you folks do with furniture. In normal use, IKEA is durable enough and well-designed. It looks flimsy but in my experience is more durable than many other heavier-looking pieces of furniture.
In any case, if something breaks in normal use, email IKEA. They have a customer service that works. At the very least they can mail you broken parts.
Every movie should have a voluntary payment option like this, directly to the studio. I will use it every time I watch a copyrighted movie past its 1/3 length.

I've never been to a conference with a junk submission accepted, or a junk presentation. Many conferences in my field reject submissions that are real but low-quality, even for a poster session. Talks are always competitive. I chaired a conference last year. We rejected some submissions that were uninteresting or poorly written. For most of those, the submission was read by two professors before rejecting it. We received no computer-generated submissions.
I sometimes get spammed or "invited" by suspiciously looking conferences. I never go to these. Why would anyone attend a conference that is lower-quality? There always are good conferences around. You have a choice.
