Share Links, Become Extradited To the US

chomsky68 Re:This bullshit has to stop. (244 comments)

Hollywood has become the National Socialist Party and they see everyone who uses the internet as a dirty Jew.

I think you need to look up the definition of Socialism.... If Hollywood was socialist the movies would be free for everyone.

and I think you have no idea what is the difference between Socialist and National Socialist

McAfee sued over pop-ups

chomsky68 chomsky68 writes  |  more than 4 years ago

chomsky68 (1719996) writes "Two California women have sued security company McAfee, accusing it of duping customers into subscribing to third-party services and passing consumers' credit or debit card information to the service supplier without their permission.

The lawsuit asked a San Francisco federal court to grant the case class-action status, and demanded that McAfee be barred from continuing the practice. The pair also asked for compensatory and punitive damages, which would be decided at trial."
