I'm not responsible for the site's funding. I AM responsible for the bandwidth I pay for. I'm also responsible for how the site is rendered on my screen. I did not ask for ads, either implicitly or explicitly, and was never asked if I wanted to see ads. Advertising is also an attack vector, so blocking ads is also about my safety.

the site is paid for by putting ads among the content. Luckily, I have taken measures to prevent those ads stealing bandwidth. I have never consented to being shown ads, its purely between the site and the advertiser. The viewer is not part of the deal, so don't bother the viewer with ads, unless he asked for it.

it sounds like slavery to me, because people are forced to work and do not get any wages. A workforce for the government should be paid at least minimum wage, and not be on welfare which comes with a lot of other restrictions. The system asks a LOT in return for welfare... more than a job, in my dutch experience.

nah.. 99% of the fun is the crashes. F1 is too safe to be fun any more, and the competition itself is NEVER shown. get rid of the races, put the cars on a roller setup to see who built the fastest car, and show us the construction process. because it's not about the driver. it's about the cars and how they're built.

the currently known tests do not test for high, impairment or being under the influence. They test whether there is THC in the blood or saliva. This is the reason why this test is not used in the Netherlands. The law clearly states that driving under the influence of marihuana is not allowed, but that is not something these tests can show.

The moon may be smaller than Earth, but it's further away.
