Remarkably enough, advertisers find adblocking immoral. Here's an article claiming that it's like speeding. Actually, it's like telling a pick-up-artist that he doesn't have a right to sex with you.

Thanx to Metafilter

I always thought I don't eat like a normal person. But maybe it's normal not to eat like a normal person.

Amazon announces in the first paragraph that it has a bad policy and in the second that it is snooping on you in ways it refuses to reveal. It wants to keep its subjects from reviewing the work of writers they know. Stupid and only selectively enforceable, like Facebook's Real names Policy.

An elitist is a person with ability who tells the masses not to obey the rich white guys. If you don't believe that, consider this article about Donald Trump as anti-elite politician.

(And let's hear it for the Chicago brewery that renamed their Donald Trump beer "Chinga Tu Pelo.")

Jonathan Rauch argues that same-sex marriage MUST NOT lead to polygamy, of which the only possible form is one man, several wives.

I first encountered Wayne Allyn Root in the pro football magazines, where he was offering his services as an investment adviser. Now he has moved on to defending America against same-sex marriage, which threatens to infect the rest of us with the diabolical notion that marriage can be something other than a tiresome duty. Amanda Marcotte mocks him, including pointing out that his statistics don't work. If he applied those arithmetical skills to beating the spread, it's no wonder he needed a new gig.

Thanx to Pandagon.
