    I use torrents. Why does that make me a criminal. 

    So I live most of the year in another country. I have premium cable in my house in USA but I am never there. The only way to watch the shows I like are by downloading torrents.

    But everyone says that torrents are costing the movie companies and cable companies gazillions of dollars. WHY? How did I cost them any money?

    I have the right to sit in front of my tv and watch all the TV shows I like. But I am not there and can’t sit in front and don’t have enough bandwidth to watch over the internet.

    So why am I “stealing” from the studios and such? This whole copyright law bullshit is out of control

    You can’t sell used Panties on Ebay. Why not?? 

    Yes, it is true – you can’t sell used panties on ebay.

    Buying or selling worn panties is a particular art for certain people only. Anyone can sell a pair of used panties, but only those in a special league know what to look for and understand how buying the right panties from the right seller is most satisfying. [ebayername] caters to only those who fall into the category with higher standards. It is an amazing experience and well worth it.

    Well, I’m not into the whole used panties and “get a whiff” thing … but I respect other people’s diversions (diversion, NOT a perversion!). Ebay however, doesn’t feel the same way, banning the sale of used panties.

    Why? Who does it harm? There is no law against the sale of used panties. And contrary to some schooled-at-home-lawyers, there is no postal service law that prevents the mailing of previously worn undergarments. One idiot posted that it WAS illegal to mail as used panties fell under the “hazardous materials” act!

    Maybe some of you can explain to me in comments WHY a woman shouldn’t be allowed to make money while staying at home selling her used panties on ebay. Because I don’t get it.


    what does ebay have against used panties and hot mom's selling their drawers?

    PS: Make sure you read those rules! You can’t even sell BRAND NEW CHILDREN’S UNDERWEAR on ebay.

    Amazon cheats affiliates! Someone doesn’t care. 

    There are supposedly more than 2,000,000 (2 million) affiliates all trying to earn $3-4USD from Amazon.  Even with these terribly low commissions, Amazon still tries to shave money from affiliate payments by finding ways NOT to pay.

    Here is a great example.

    My neighbor (same building – hence same shipping address) mentioned to me that he was looking for a new camera.  Quick as a flash, I wrote down my website and asked him to look online and see if anything on my site would fit the bill.

    He looked … and placed an order for the camera .. then placed an order for memory cards, then placed another order for something else.  All went through MY site — MY AMAZON AFFILIATE site using my links.

    My control panel on Amazon registered the sale.  The items were shipped.  My neighbor received them and was happy — nothing was returned or charged-back.

    Months later … where is my commission???  No posts in my account or notification to tell me why I am not getting paid.  So I complain.  The reply astounded me.

    … the items listed in your account’s Orders Report were flagged by our system as ineligible for Associates advertising fees.

    … This can also happen if we have determined that the [b]orders resulted from you requesting or encouraging your friends, relatives, or other people you know to purchase products through your Special Links[/b].

    …  Associates are not eligible for advertising fees …, or ask people they know to routinely place orders through their links so they can earn advertising fees.

    So the rules are you can’t ask people you know to place orders through your website!!!!  Can you believe that?

    My commission would have been around $30.  Imagine if Amazon uses this tactic on a measly one out of 50 affiliates … That would equal millions of dollars each month that Amazon doesn’t have to pay in fees to the affiliates.

    What a great ripoff.

    PS:  If you are interested, visit http://thetruthaboutamazon.com/  and see what others have to say.

    Or search for “amazon rips off affiliates” on any of the search engines.

    Yes, Amazon cheats the small guy.
