    Thanks for the explanation. I have been wondering about that for the past three months.

  • Christian Vincent

    Wow. This was shown to me, found by coincidence. Thank you so much for sharing this.

    If anybody can do it, (successfully bring attention to, boycott and cause action) the gay community can. Look at the history with equal rights, AIDS and marriage equality. And even better nowadays because more are with us. Russia picked the wrong group to f**k with.

    We took on COKE over at adgitadiaries……check Google, and give us feedback—-lots of direct links to the excellent work AB is doing on this.

    Stoli, Coca-Cola…..

    We need a list. And I think in a very short time, that list will be available. Woe to the corporate person who has to deal with this fan going at full blast when the $µit hits it.

    So far, the answer from The Coca-Cola Company is seriously lacking. Holding their feet to the fire would be a fine way to expand the boycott.

    Yeah, that’s going to be the way it is forever, because MS Explorer doesn’t comply with RSS standards, so you either have to develop to the RSS standard (which works for every other browser,) then write a whole big exception for formatting in MSE, or try to raise people’s awareness that using browsers which don’t comply to standards is like driving a car whose gas supply can suddenly send you careening over a bridge.

    Using MS Explorer 8 the ads on this site still are moved down over whatever is below, in this case the upper left corner of the video.
