Dear DTOID, f*ck you, sincerely, me

Dear DTOID

I am sad. I've been lurking around here for as long as I can remember. This is/was my favourite gaming news site and now I'm soon forced to leave and never come back. Why? The goddamned advertisment whoring business going on lately. I don't own a car, I don't want to own one and especially not a bloody Chrystler. I curse your name out loud everytime I click a dtoid video link, instantly regretting my mistake. I don't want to sit through the chrystler ad (which is unstoppable once it's started by the way) every fucking time. Now, this alone has gotten me to force myself to read Kotaku instead, even though I don't fancy their layout nor their lack of humour. Still, I check back here, from time to time, just being super careful not to click any of the infernal videos.

Cue dimming out the entire window, displaying the most ass-awful piece of advertisment ever. It takes over the entire screen and shows some emo kid with wings or something, flashing fancy animations in my sore pre-morning-coffee eyes. I instantly swoop my cursor all over the place, looking for a way to bring swift deadly vengeance upon this creature, to no avail. I have to sit through the whole thing in slow-mo snail speed before a tiny "x" appears in the upper right corner.

I don't have any pretence of thinking I'll be missed but this was the last drop. Fuck you and good bye, nice knowing you.

Don't copy that floppy!

Just felt I had to share one of the best things I've ever seen. Apologies if this is older than the Internet itself (infact, I know it to be) but I first saw it just a few days ago.

See, the RIAA was right all along. Now go learn the lyrics and lay down some stone cold truth on your fellow pirates. Also, first try at this Cblog business...   read
