Once upon a time, I used to read James Long's blog/website about his dissatisfaction with certain American businesses that don't want to do business with customers.
So, I was happening to look up where to get comic art boards, the best ones I've seen are from Bill Cole Enterprises (these are the very ones that Archie Comics use) and its the first hit in Google...
Unfortunately I get presented with this:
So right there folks, its 2018 and this douchebag thinks its just wild animals and 419 scammers that live in South Africa. But what this dickwad doesn't realize is that I can get to his site, just fine from Tor
So here is a company that is now BLACKLISTED in my personal list of companies who will NEVER get my business, ever. I urge you to not support these people too.
So I happened to find this site recently: weasyl.com.
I went and had a look because some other folks known to me use the site. One thing that did catch my eye was their Staff Code of Conduct page. I must admit many lulz were had reading through that. But let's bring your attention, dear reader, to the following section:
Staff members are forbidden from performing their duties while under the influence of any mind- altering substances. If there is any indication that a staff member is operating under the influence, they will be temporarily locked out of their account. Prescription drugs are permissible, although we require that they seek approval from the rest of the staff before performing their duties if they affect a staff member's performance.
LOLWUT, do I now have to get permission from some shitty internet forum I am volunteering at, to take my prescription drugs? Not even my employer has that kind of over-arching power.
So needless to say, I won't be using a site that has such draconian (and illegal) rules.
