So they used babes in bikinis to advertise ... so what
So he killed an elephant, never mind one that was going to have to be put down anyway.... whatever.
How is buying popular searched for domain names unethical, sounds like good business practice to me... you meam they're a business out to make money... whatever

oh you mean the company listened to their customers and dropped their support for SOPA... oh yeah, that **** has got to stop, can't support a company that will change their minds just because their customers tell them they're wrong....

you got to come up with some better reasons, some actual real valid reasons.

Or how about add other options for login like generic openID vs FB and twitter. Not everyone uses those services, and if they do -- maybe they don't want to link their neowin account with those accounts, etc.

errr. it's not called getting aught with your pants down when you publicly and very officially support something. and then they listened to their customers, unlike many, if not most other companies.

gives them a bonus point in my book.

[/quote]yes they "listened to their customers" /s

more like they reversed the decision to support SOPA because they were afraid to lose a lot of customers due to the backlash
something any company does to cover their ass if a backlash is big enough

By listened to their customers, you mean control the outrage, loss of customers and revenue? They didn't do this from the kindness of their heart and the respect of their customers. They did this, to stop people from jumping ship like rats off the Titanic.
