      Typical.

      It is illegal in matter of fact for the wealthiest of pigs to not become twice so wealthy in a year, after so many billions - happiness can only be achieved with blood, starvation, oppression, and never ending falsehoods uttered by the government whores on a tv screen.

        Some of them are unbelievably irritating, especially those for the various high-street banks. They are always trying to convince you that they are your great friend. Everybody knows that they will screw you over if given half a chance. The Sainsbury's ads with Jamie Oliver always used to leave me screaming at the television as well. I can't stand him, as you may have guessed.

          Chris I'm hoping the mind will evolve to where it automatically believes anything said on tv....but in the meantime, I can hardly wait for the infomercial for miraculous itchy balls cure in low cost, convenient once per day capsule form.

    I always used to mute the sound whenever the adverts came on, as I'm not interested in watching a meerkat trying to sell me car insurance. I don't want much TV nowadays, but I'm fortunate that most of the programmes I watch are on the BBC, so no adverts.

    It is in regard to the Dish NEtwork Auto-hopper, which is user enabled. It doesn't work on all programs (like sports events). We all skip commercials whether we mute, walk away, or fast forward through a dvr recorded program.

    I thought I had seen it all, but no, there is still more nonsense and greed to come. When I've recorded a show I always fastforward the ads. Is that illegal? It appears the "big boys" are trying to flex their muscles once again and to prove what.
