A Digital Rights "Annoyance"
« on: February 21, 2011, 09:36:36 AM »
Not going to rant on DRM. Not going to rant on DR.

I go to this web site with something I'm very interested in. Oh. I can see the video. For free! Ok. Click. Advertisement. 30 seconds. Ok. No biggie. Almost done... I can deal with ads. It's ok. They pay for the show... Almost done... kk -- sure your ad is great. Love it. Almost done... and... OK SHOW~! "This video cannot be shown due to..." F*** off. Click Close.

Bait & switch is one thing, but bait & screw? This is new. :P

If you're going to show ads... jeez... At least be decent about it. I'm ok with ads. I'm not ok with suckering me in.

I am sick of blatant deception on the web.

Bait & screw? I've heard ether is the best bait.
