Network Solutions Opts Customer Into $1,850 Security Service

bitbucketeer It's what they do, dammit! (405 comments)

The reprobates at Network Solutions re-enable auto renew every couple of months, forcing me to log in and turn it off again. Someone should write a Firefox add-on to do that automatically. The cretinous chimps have also been guessing the new expiration dates on expired credit cards in order to charge those auto renewals.

bitbucketeer Out of print? (309 comments)

If an intellectual property isn't worth keeping available for sale, then the copyright owner should lose their exclusive copyright. Copyright is to promote the progress of science and useful arts, not facilitate their abandonment and loss!

bitbucketeer Re:Anyone who votes negative doesn't understand ta (394 comments)

This humorless nerd, however, can read English and understood the poll to be about my tax bill, which my employer overpaid. When you go to McDonald's and buy a Big Mac combo and pay with a twenty and get change back, would you understand that McDonald's paid you to eat their unhealthy meal?

"The socialists believe in two things which are absolutely different and perhaps even contradictory: freedom and organization." - Élie Halévy
