SOPA author I think Lamar Smith needs to be monitored. He is protesting WAY too much, which I think is simply a diversionary tactic. He's probably in some airport bathroom right this very minute exchanging child pornography with Rick Santorum.

Revcb - Great stories this morning One of your best headlineups ever, Revcb
The Dark Tower's Skynet evolves from 4chan.
Graphic designers ruining the web to be honest, im glad that we dont have the bland and boring pages we used to, check out some of your favorite websites using the waybackwhen machine, they are awful. Now, on the subject of website sizes: the average web page is now 1MB, and its growing, in large part, thanks to embedded ads and stupid content. Does anyone remember popups? yea, those were sometimes huge and annoying, and NOW, its ads that scream at you. If you run Firefox with AdBlockPlus, and NoScript, most pages are only a few hundred kilobytes now. Youtube loads up with only using 485KB. Its the ads, and nothing more. Block them, and most sites go back to being small again. Oh, and FYI, I just checked youtube with ads running, and it was a little over 2MB, and then once I blocked ads, i got ~485KB. Also, websites with infinite scrolls(think facebook here) get infinity large. I just loaded facebook to check and see, but on first load it was ~1MB, and then I scrolled for 30 seconds, and it loaded a whopping 28MB worth of stuff, and that was mostly bland stuff, with no pictures. Imagine if pictures were enabled. I feel bad for people with caps, because if the current trend continues, just plain web browsing will be close to 250GB per month. I already do 30GB in just browsing, and go way over charters 500GB cap every month for gaming and everything else.
Re: Graphic designers ruining the web All of which was nice and dandy. But there was a downside: webpages began to put on weight. Over the last decade, the size of web pages (measured in kilobytes) has more than septupled. From 2003 to 2011, the average web page grew from 93.7kB to over 679kB.
Yeah and in 2003 the best speed I could get was 3 Mbps now I'm getting 30 Mbps for the same price.

Blockwho? First off, who still deals with Blockbuster? Also, there's a shocker... all of the devices they "support" are made by Samsung. (excluding the mobile apps)
I cannot speak for everyone, but the first thing I did after powering up my premiere was remove blockbuster from the menu(s).
