Use of Don Henley's well-known music implies that he supports the DeVore, which he clearly does not. In that sense, it is defamatory to Don Henley
What? How on earth does using this tune imply that Henley has anything to do with it? It is clearly meant to be silly. I had difficulty understanding what the heck you were talking about...
Then I saw you start to drift to talk about ripping off conservative's music (what?) and then onto demon sheep political advertisments (how is that relevant?) and then onto "Repugnantcan" (did I spell that right?) douchebaggery. That's when I realized that your rant is basically like grampa simpson yelling at a cloud. Why is this troll modded up?
Why are you suggesting a Firefox addon for a complaint about MSIE 6.0 in an environment where you can be fired for using anything other than MSIE?
Wow a little touchy huh? I'm suggesting flashblock to everybody. There are probably people out there who aren't as 1337 as you and maybe haven't heard of it.
the assumption by software vendors that their software is so important that it should auto-start
It is not exactly that they think their software is that important... it is a way of cheating.
When they "auto-start" the app when the operating system loads, they are pre-loading some memory and executing some initialization. So then, when you go to start their program.... BAM! It pops up so quickly! What a great piece of software, it is so fast!!!
And yes, this trick works on about 99% of users.
If you think the system is working, ask someone who's waiting for a prompt.
