2. I lost mine a while ago.

Firefox and the NoScript add-on will take care of ads.

4. No excuse



Hardcore judgmental there, ain'tcha?

To those like me who really ARE too poor to afford a star ( GAWD WHERE DO THESE PEOPLE COME FROM WHO DON'T HAVE ANY CONCEPT OF POVERTY???????? okay ranting over... )

to those like me, you have a reason not an excuse, and you should not feel humiliated or bullied by onehandle.

Star or no star, I appreciate all who contribute here.


Well, almost all.

9. No apology coming from me. There is no minimum.

The average sofa cushions hold more than enough.

Now attack me for 'assuming' that everyone has a sofa.

11. I am in no way attacking you


But I think you are being judgemental.

Some people have a lot to deal with; I prefer not to hear some people tell other people what their priorities should be.

The dollar you scrounge out of your sofa cushions may be spending money to you; to someone else, it will buy a box of macaroni and cheese for their kid.

Some people don't have checking accounts, ATM cards or credit cards. It's actually true, as unbelievable as that may seem to you.

Of course you can sit on a high horse if you wish; but those walking don't need your scorn.

10. you can get the star for as little as 1.00 for the whole year

You can even mail it in if you need to. I gave 10 bucks coz that's what I thought I could afford. Some give that every month. It's totally up to us now. I would not feel bad at all taking advantage of the offer and only paying a buck for the year if that is all I could do.

8. Ad Blocking software stunts revenue from DU

I know it's annoying to see ads jumping all over the place, but all that stuff pays back revenue (through page hits) to DU. So think of it as a necessary evil. Yes it sucks, but it keeps our site going.
