Assuming the Daily Fail got this story right this is just awful.  It's a major disability.

That stupid article can't make up its mind if it is the yeast or the wheat making him sick.

A fate worse than death.

I'd have to battle through it.
 
2013-04-12 09:35:07 PM  
Ironic? No.

Well, that's just terrible.

If he's alergic to the hops then can't he just switch to serving Budweiser?

Poor Bastard.  Fire him and hire me as his replacement.  He obviously lied on his job application.

Irony is saying one thing and meaning another. When divorced Republicans claim to support traditional marriage, that's irony. This? This is merely a humorous coincidence.

Im not quite sure what you asking. But let me attempt to answer.

Fark is like all priateable media. I would do without if I couldn't get it for free. And there are often ways around attempts to restrict access.

1)  "hit" in my post was a typo - check the context.  Should have been "him."
2)  yes, I do.  This stuff costs money to do.  You value the service, else you wouldn't be here.  He's not taking content from the other sites, he's directing traffic to those sites - they love him for it.
3)  So, you think you deserve for drew to pay for something out of his pocket, for your benefit, as though he's the government and you're a welfare recipient?  Why, what did Drew do to you?

No they are too busy green lighting trolltastic links to generate traffic.

Anything I write here becomes property of Fark to use as they wish. I owe them nothing.

If they don't like that, they can make Fark subscription-only, and I won't give a single fark.

The ads only cost you landscape on your monitor, and a tiny amount of bandwidth use.  Assuming you're browsing from work, it doesn't even cost that.  Plus, your access isn't being restricted - it's not as though he's blocking people who have adblock installed - which he could do, but isn't doing.  He's just putting a tiny line asking that you consider not being a welfare recipient sucking on his company's teat - that's not unreasonable.  You're using his service.

Makes me wonder how much ad revenue they would loose if it were subscription-only

No one claims you owe him something, but you seem to think he owes <i>you</i> something, if you think vitriol over a single little line is justified.  Don't want to see ads?  Fine, you'll see a little line asking you to reconsider, instead.  Get over it.

//I use adblock too
//I got over the little line.  There were many tears, but if you try, you too can make it over that emotional mountain

My brotther-in-law says he's allergic to beer: something in it makes him sneeze etc. like from pollen. He can have two brown ales before it gets to him though, but not one right after the other.

I think he can still drink liquor & wine easily but he rarely drinks anyway. Since he married my sister a generation ago he's become basically intoxicant free. In other ways too he takes being a provider, husband & father seriously and he's pretty good at it; those two are considerably more "family-oriented" than they were in their teens & 20s, while I've recently entered my 39th year of being 12.

Ads are annoying. Ad blockers etc are like muting the tv during commercials. So are people who mute commercials welfare recipients?

No my access isnt curently being restricted. But the could probably do something where you have to allow ads to view Fark. But they dont. I suspect its because they would loose traffic and therefore ad revenue.

Welcome to the marvelous world of cider and hard liquor.

Actually, I can't handle much cider. Sulfites make my sinuses all puffy, and most undistilled yeasty stuff has some sort of sulfite slipped in to make it last longer on the shelf. Except sake, but you might as well be drinking vodka. Or rum, which can actually come with some flavor.

Please, I crashed the funeral that "was" this lame friday night thread.

No, just the ones who go out of their way to threadjack to whine about it.

Fark owes me nothing. They could close up shop right now, and I won't give a single fark. I'll go somewhere else.

You're as much of a leech as the rest of us.
 
2013-04-12 10:22:14 PM  
I'll tell you one other thing, IamAwake. I'm not a leech. Against my wishes, people buy me TotalFark from time to time. Small sum though it may be, Fark makes money on me.

Adblock can block that.

Yeah it sucks but you get use to it. I'm allergic to ethyl alcohol too. First time I drank beer after just one I felt like I was coming down with the flu and face swelled really bad.
 
2013-04-12 10:54:22 PM  
It can't be that bad being a lager lout.  No wheat allowed under Reinheitsgebot.

Suicide is NOT funny.

I'm confused.  Isn't the major difference between ales and lagers top-fermenting yeast vs. bottom-fermenting yeast?

That would suck.

On that note: why does a Mikes hard lemonade make me turn bright red and sneeze? Just the Mikes, nothing else makes me feel like I'm walking through a hay field during harvest.

Probably mildly allergic to one ingredient or another.
