I was sucked in.

It sure does make addictive, doesn't it ;-)

Humor was stricken from TMF in a Kristallnacht of censorship, where only the pro-Wintel would survive.

You know, at the time I lived in the States, I would have never bothered with expressions regarding Hitler, Nazis and Reichskristallnacht, but since I moved to Germany I have become quite aware of the Germany history regarding the Dritte Reich. I read some books about concentration camps, the propaganda machine and the Hitler Regime in general. I have become touchy on this subject and it really disppoints me when people compare TMF to the censorship of the Reichskristallnacht. I've read enough to know, that even some seem to go as far as comparing TMF to Hitler etc.

Let's be careful how we chose our words. To compare TMF censorships to the Nazi Regime is humiliating those citizens who fought against these censorship <Deutscher Widerstand> and who serverly suffered under Hitler. To compare TMF to Hitler, is from my point of view, insulting those who were abused and killed by him. It is cynical to use these expressions.

Now I have to look at all these cheesy ads which do not have any attraction for me

Maybe TMF should give you the option to p-box certain ads. It works for trolls so why not for ads?
