I can’t find too many complaints about this list.
I get a lot of spam every week asking me to exchange links with everything from online casino sites to penis enlargement sites (Yeah, that’s a link I want on my website). Lately I have started to get emails from bloggers asking to exchange links with them. This is becoming a pet peeve of mine when “legitimate” blogs start acting like spammers. All the links that you see on my blogroll are there because they are my favorite blogs to go to, not because I have some arrangement where they will link to me if I link to them. A blogroll should be a reflection of your interests, not some tawdry arrangement to try to get me more hits.
Workprints leak from studios. The studios are trying to lock down what customers do with DVDs and cable TV and PCs, but they can’t even keep their own house in order. They’ve got laws that allow them to get your name from your ISP and to sue you into bankruptcy for file-sharing. They’ve got laws to criminalize the math to defeat DRM. They’re after laws to let them design TVs and camcorders.
