As a rep for the store, they can trespass you... Tell you that you need to leave the property and that if you come back you will be arrested for trespassing... (they do it all the time in Vegas)

Lame. If I don't want ads to the point that I go install adblock, why would I want to undo that? If the site has a loyal group that wants to view ads, they already have the means to whitelist. Also, a website can put a plea 'please show our ads even though we know you will not clickthrough' on a site now. If adblock ends up pestering me - it's fork time, and the first cool mod would be autoblocking of sites with 'no really, do you want to see some ads?' tagging to support this stupidity...

We are considering purchasing a device of some kind to help condition the air quality within our home. Stand alone devices and devices that tie into our HVAC are under consideration. Several of our parrots (Congo African Grey, Moluccan Cockatoo, Goffin's Cockatoo) naturally generate a fair amount of very fine dust/dander. This is potentially harmful to other parrot species, especially macaws. Reducing the danger of bacterial growth and infection is also a concern. We also have a Doberman, two chihuahuas, and a foster chihuahua. Despite our menagerie, we manage to keep a fairly clean house. The desire to do even better by improving our indoor air quality leads us to look for options in addition to regular vacuuming and changing our HVAC filter weekly instead of monthly.
Under consideration are HEPA, negative ion generation, and ozone generation. HEPA filters seem to require more maintenance as they trap everything (including bacteria) and need frequent cleaning. Negative ion generation seems to cause particles to attach themselves to surfaces and therefore additional action needs to be taken to remove the particles from the environment. Ozone generation is touted by many products but the US EPA seems to state there is no benefit in reducing bacteria or odors without generating levels that are dangerous to people, pets, and plants (http://www.epa.gov/iaq/pubs/ozonegen.html). There are multiple products that use any one or multiple combinations of the three.
Have any fellow Slashdotters out there needed to modify their environment's air quality for biological reasons and if so, how?"
Your most private thoughts that you share with your psychotherapist have been scanned and merged with your general medical records, where they are now available to anybody who sues your insurance company over a fender-bender auto accident, if your hospital is like Stanford Hospital & Clinics (and most are). That's what Patricia Galvin found out when she sued her therapist, clinical psychologist Rachel Manber, for disclosing her therapy notes, even though Manber assure
