@rammedury Yes, I agree. Online advertising has gone too far and Ad-blocking gives readers a tool to fight back.

@virsanghvi Your website disallows the "Alt" Key! Very annoying alert when I use "Alt-Tab" to switch windows; I don't have permission?! Why?
These day there have been frequuent occasions where I have regretted not having my camera. Planning to carry it along to work from now.

@whoisvaibhav The danger with this can be tiny droplets that tend to form in Compressed air. Ever faced that problem?
@i_r_squared I would've probably do the same thing Sirjee. But that still doesn't make it right.
@i_r_squared I read this news on Metro; it did not say what happened to the read robber. If he was let off, then that is bad indeed.
@i_r_squared I can understand why he could've been irrational. But there have to be boundaries you shouldn't cross. What he did was illegal.
@i_r_squared Well then, we disagree there. If a guy climbs into my house, I have the right to drive him out; not to climb over his.
@i_r_squared What would've been justifiable is if he had caught and handed him to the Police. But that wasn't the intent here; revenge was.
@i_r_squared Agreed he was traumatized. But to gang up on an already fleeing robber and beating him up black and blue? Not justifiable.
@i_r_squared @deepakshenoy Not in the house! He chased the robber fleeing down the street and then beat him up! There is a difference.
Went Paintballing this morning, an interesting experience. Hurt my knee in the game though and only now am realizing how bad the pain is :(

@whoisvaibhav Good point. Though I am still unconvinced that you can equate Ad-blocking to stealing. If content is precious, restirct access
@whoisvaibhav While I agree AdBlockPlus goes against the business model of the Internet, it give users leverage against uncontrolled ads
@whoisvaibhav The two are extreme views. Leaving choice to the authors will make pesky popups and unwanted cookies the order of the day!
@whoisvaibhav Interesting thoughts. Have you read http://bit.ly/6FZNFP? Ads, even when necessary, can be a nuisance. We need a middle-ground
Tried Thunderbird over Outlook a while ago; didn't notice any advantages. I dislike the lack of PST support. Is Thunderbird v3 any better?
