    I really like this place

    Post by Heat on Mon Jan 24, 2011 2:40 am

    Why?

    Because I don't have to deal with those Scientology ads that I always get on BZP.

    Why does a "religion" even need advertising?!

    I would of hoped you had more reasons to like this site...
    But still, this forum has its share of bad advertising.

    I have plenty of reasons to like this place, I just picked this one because I was complaining about the fact that BZPower hosts advertisements for a cult.

    XD +1 Blackout, +1.

    I don't remember much of the Scientology ads, but they do have ads that I doubt should be on a children's site.

    We have our lame share of "Shoot this duck and win an I-pad" advertisements.

    But, I guess thats not so bad compared with some of the ads on BZP.

    We have also had adverts for the highly anticipated (by me) Shogun 2: Total War... And as I can see now, The Lord of The Rings Online adverts. That game never worked for me, plus it was a stupidly long download time.

    In fact, I barely see that many ads. And if there are some, I ignore them. On BZP, however, they're filled with flashy colors.

    I once got an ad that tried to open some weird program that was probably a virus.

    Sir, here in America, people exist who listen to horribly blatant violent language from downright CRAZY people.

    It kind of sucks. I'm REALLY glad most of the people I know personally don't listen to them.

    I don't know who Glenn Beck is.

    Does he accuse Muslims of trying to conquer the world?

    He accuses all liberals of destroying America and secretly being Communist, uses radically violent language...and cites no evidence WHATSOEVER, save for pictures of Hitler, Stalin, and Mao.

    And people listen to him. *shudder*

    Regardless of political views, having terrible people is something universal. Not sure if that used correct grammar...

    When it comes to political insanity, nothing beats Jaroslaw Kaczynski and his horde of religious fanatics.

    I admit that I had to look this guy up, but...

    What's wrong about him? He opposed Communism and that's always a good thing. As I see it he was just some President who died in one of very few plane crashes. Poor guy.

    Yeah right.

    When it comes to political insanity, nothing beats Jaroslaw Kaczynski and his horde of religious fanatics.
    You've got a point there. Kaczynski is nuts.

    I admit that I had to look this guy up, but...

    What's wrong about him? He opposed Communism and that's always a good thing. As I see it he was just some President who died in one of very few plane crashes. Poor guy.

    You're talking 'bout Lech Kaczynski.

    He was the sane one.

    It kind of sucks. I'm REALLY glad most of the people I know personally don't listen to them.

    ...IN AMERICA!

    Seriously, though, could you give me any names?
