    Why would you link to brobible for that Heidi Klum story? They had a less-than-one-paragraph snippet about it that didn’t mention one single thing, only that she’s hot.

    I just wanted to say that I admire ur ethical approach to this site, Paul. Specifically how you don’t lift entire paragraphs from other websites and put a link at the end like it’s a simple citation. I notice a lot of websites that basically steal page views by using this method. I’m not gonna mention any but I think unless there’s a contract or a formal relationship then it’s pretty low when someone else does the heavy lifting and people just repost the juiciest parts of their articles effectively stealing content and page views. I like the way you encourage people to go to the source even though some of the places that you redirect to don’t show the same sense of fairness.

    With the shit security that we’re seeing from Microsoft and Sony, you can count me out if they ban XBL points. I’m not putting my credit card number up for grabs. Morons.
