Irony

Am I the only one who finds it ironic that, with a sticky thread about not providing help/info on copying DVDs, etc., there is now a very large banner ad at the top of every thread in every forum promoting the "Best DVD Ripper Software"?

It's been there for maybe a few weeks now.

If, by chance, this is some sort of targeted ad based on cookies/tracking related to my search habits or whatever, then that system is wonky. I have not been re/searching DVD ripping or anything remotely related.

No clue why the thread was closed, though.

Re: Irony

IB's sales department (covers all IB sites not just DVDTalk.com) doesn't care about the forum rules. Last year they even had DVDTalk.com sponsor a ripping product.

Re: Irony

It's funny that it's even a taboo subject, at this point.
