Which ones run the banks?
Yup. That one.
Still a long way to go before we can be rid of the horrid thing, but this is one step closer.
I haven't used it in ages. When I come to a site like the BBC that says something like "Your technology is out of date." If I feel charitable I write them and tell them to get their shit together. Regardless of whether I write them or not, I close the site.
Welcome to the latest and most provactive episode of: government v.s. the people.

created by militant atheists
You mean the atheists runing around killing abortion doctors on the command of no god whatsoever, or the atheists blowing themselves up in the name of no higher order?
Or do you mean that the bad things that were not done in the name of a god are the fault of all people that don't believe in gods?
There is no such thing as atheist dogma, so there is nothing for militant atheists to be militant about. There are non-religious dogmas, such as Stalinism. Please explain how all atheists are responsible for, or support these. You know, like how all Catholics support bigotry because they subscribe to Catholocism.
Why should I store any of my media (or other data, for that matter) anyplace else?
There's no good reason to do that. Storage is dirt cheap. If you don't own a real computer you might find it useful. If you aren't storing it on your own system though, you should reconsider calling it 'your' media, because you don't actually possess it.
They wanted to charge me a fee to close my account.
I had a girl say that to me once when I asked to close an account. Wanted 8 bucks as a service charge. I said, "OK, never mind that, just give me all the money." She laughed and complied.
