Plays into this too...


Someone thought it would be a bright idea to have online registration with the IRS. So now people will think it's more legit if they did sign up. So that email could have more of a chance to be taken seriously...

It was really odd as I read this I was thinking to myself this sounds awfully a lot like the arguments that spammers gave me when they found out their account was turned off. Of course it's not fair to lump them into the same category as that because they place these ads on the sites and not just cram your own space full of stuff. I think this guy needs to take a step back though and really look at what some people are doing that may or may not be members and see it's a reason for the ad blocking. The over abundance/overkill of advertising on a web site. The advertisements that cause malware infections. The tracking that goes on. I believe Ad blocking would be less used if advertising were more responsible - even just by solving the malware issue alone.

For me I have only watched the trailers and the one trailer that was put together. I try my hardest to avoid all other information about the movie and can so I have done so very well. I especially ignore everything right now even "spoiler free" reviews. I want to try and relive the experience I had as a kid. You knew next to nothing going in and came out with an imagination running wild. I have emptied my cup and I await till tomorrow to fill it.

Banning is a bit heavy handed. They should have just created a Yoda translator plugin for their website and forced those users to have it for a week.

"He’s vowed never to take an invention to school again."

This is the true shame in all of it. First thing when he gets back to school he should do is start an engineering club. I'm sure after the settlement he'll be able to give a nice donation to the club to keep it going for a long time and really stick it to them.
