My friends and I are in the middle of a discussion about video game sequels that surpass their predecessors. We've come up with a few easy ones like Mass Effect 2, System Shock 2, Devil May Cry 3 etc.

What are your opinions dudes?

Awesome! Will be using this offer to hopefully convince my 'on the fence' friends about the game.

That's shitty but like other people in the thread I'm not surprised you've had this kind of trouble seeing as you're an international customer.

Hell yeah! Beyblades were pretty huge, at the time, in my primary school, same with Yu-Gi-Oh!, Pokémon, and Jackie Chan Adventures trading cards.

I just hope that this doesn't kill off any potential openings in Aaron Paul's future career. He's great in Breaking Bad and I'd hate to see him disappear so quickly.

I am against putting the devil's semen anywhere near myself or my food.

Ethical is a strange word to use when discussing the use of AdBlock. It should be unanimous that it is unethical to take away the income of sites/personalities that go out of their way to provide content for their users/fans with no extra charge (bar advertisements.) However, that's not why I use the extension, I use it mainly because it eliminates tacky flash banners and pre-video advertisements on YouTube. I don't have it on all the time though, I tell AdBlock to stop running on sites like Giant Bomb and various YouTube users etc. because I like the site enough to sacrifice convenience in order to support them.

So in answer to your question, no, it's not really 'ethical' but I don't think that's the right word to use for this discussion.

@ch3burashka: I've had the same thought whilst using torrents (legal or otherwise.) Thankfully though I haven't received any kind of 'cease and desist' letters from my ISP and I hope it stays that way.

Awesome idea for a thread! Afraid I don't have any to share myself but I imagine I'll be coming back to this thread fairly often.
