Not really, but it could be if we lose Net Neutrality. I don’t know if there’s a way to make the alert thing work properly on this blog, and I’m not feeling up to learning something complicated right now, so I’m just doing this.
(I swear I’ll have a more fun post sometime before long.)
I don’t have very much to add, except that part of the problem is this:
And it’s not even close to the only reason so many people feel like this:
I think one of the main reasons why people get more annoyed by ads when watching videos online than when watching broadcast/cable television (and certainly my reason) is because the former has no real filter against repeating the same ad too close together.
Watching just one episode on Crunchyroll, I just saw the same ad seven times; three times in one break; and yes, literally twice in a row. Which is worse than usual but not unprecedented.
Except this time the ad being repeated so many times was the worst kind of ad; a political ad funded by a superPAC.
(I started to dissect the horrible content of the ad itself, but it’s not worth the amount of time it would take to finish. It was simply a particularly extreme example of how ads for horrible candidates are often full of euphemisms and dysphemisms so inaccurate that they should be considered false advertising and slander respectively. And it told me exactly what I need to know to vote against the jackass it was for.)
Once again an issue thought settled surfaces again. Which is happening a lot since the current administration appears to have “undo everything the previous one did” as a goal. But the people who voted them in should be with everyone else on this one.
Read this, especially if you’re a Final Fantasy fan in America.
Personally, I never thought FFVII’s ending was saying that humanity was gone, though, only that Midgar was abandoned.
