Go fuck yourselves! Why do you think I want to wait ten seconds to download a 2MB file that will be finished downloading in less than a second in the first place? Why does there need to be a delay at all? Why can’t you just redirect me directly to my fucking file, instead of making me click on your stupid “Click here if it does not start” link? For that matter, why do you need to stick your stupid HTML pages between the original download link and the file anyway?
Go fuck yourselves! Why do you think I want to wait three minutes of commercials in the middle of a program that’s only twenty minutes in the first place? Why do you need to be a delay in my program at all? Why can’t you just put all the commercials at the end of my fucking show, instead of making me watch them or “using Tivo”? For that matter, why do you need to stick your stupid upcoming show banner on the bottom of my programs anyway?
If it’s one of those sites hosting a large number of files, the delay may also be partly to serve as a disincentive to downloading everything, then setting up your own version of the site, hosting the files yourself.
I’ve been thinking, and I do sort of blame the networks, and people who make soul-sucking advertisements. I mean, their job is making the world a worse place. This is a moral failure! We should not have to excuse it just because it is part of the system, and it gives them a paycheck.
I’m mad as hell and I’m not going to take it anymore?
I thought the message was put into the downloads page after Internet Explorer started putting a bar at the top which people had to click to allow possible malicious downloads to occur. People didn’t notice the bar and got pissed at the web page, not realizing it was IE stopping the download.
