Don't click on any links, folks. My son's computer was hijacked last week-for ransom. There a lot of assholes out there.

Never have, never will, click on any unsolicited links.

We have ever-new creative assaults against the integrity of the board, it ain't just kitchen furniture from the U.K. people. Porn links are extra-ridiculous. Seven billion of us, all built essentially the same, after how many hundreds of views/images/experiences would someone need to open a link promising more of the same??

As I said to a girlfriend, lo these many years ago, when asked why guys are always checking out other girls...

"well, when you've seen one boob, you've seen one boob. Gotta see 'em all!"

I don't remember if she thought it was funny or not, but I stand by what I said. Off to click some links!

Ah, once again, I have been drawn up short by those devoted to the Restless Search For Perfection.

What is "No script"?

I have been bummed out by YouTube's recent defeat of AdBlock; it was my secret weapon for years…

Within Firefox look for the add on 'No Script' it will effectively lock down all scripts allowing you to decide what you wish to run.
