I’m going to hand these insult donations out instead of Christmas presents for my co-workers, George Costanza style.

Your parents call you The Nickman?
Gina Riley: Oh, come on, John. That’s a bit old hat, the corrupt IOC delegate.
John Clarke: Old hat? Gina, in the scientific world when they see that something is happening again and again and again, repeatedly, they don’t call it old hat. They call it a pattern.

I think we have worked out how to switch off the overlay, pop up ads. So hopefully, they are now less intrusive for users. Any further feedback welcomed.

Let's pass the bucket. I'd gladly chip in to not see ads.
The spiral of silence refers to the idea that when people fail to speak, the price of speaking rises. As the price to speak rises, still fewer speak out, which further causes the price to rise, so that fewer people yet will speak out, until a whole culture or nation is silenced. This is what happened in Germany.

If you do not speak, you are not being neutral, but are contributing to the success of the thing you refuse to name and condemn.

I'd be concerned about any parents that name their son The.

Edit: think further I wish my parents did that.

The ads need to go. Start a fund for donations to cover costs.

No offence GE, but this whole advertising thing is a bit....... out there.....

I'd happily donate to get rid of them.
