There's sweet irony sometimes, couched as injustice. I'm getting some groceries the other day, and guess who I see driving the POS Ranger but the "Old Man". Now a certain set of plumbers here in Choice City probably know who I'm talking about, as well as maybe some of the local plumbing suppliers. I feel bad for you guys that you're still having to put up with him. He made work a poisonous environment, bragged about his days in the phone company back East, getting people fired and how you had to kiss his ass or he knew how to make your life miserable.
The "Old Man" is why I collect Federal Emergency UI Benefits. This person put his hands on me in an office, another one of those kind, also got physically rebuffed, and the police were called. Why they wouldn't press charges against Mr. Old Man, well, feel free to ask them. I kind of don't care,
I decided not to continue with this after creating an Anonymous Facebook account. It's not that we are tired of the struggle at all or technically incapable of it. Rather it had to do with principle, and holding the course with ones convictions when the water gets rough.

I found the link below just perusing the Alibaba website, after reading a story that Yahoo may be getting sold to them. Alibaba is kind of like Ebay, but not. What does Alibaba sell? Everything under the sun, moon, and kitchen sink, in wholesale quantities mostly. All from China, apparently.
Here's an example of how there are bound to be cultural issues, such as in translation. Browsing through, trying different search terms, I come up to the product linked here. Now maybe somebody was playing a joke, or the individual had a problem understanding the translation, but they seem to be brutally frank about advertising their product:
Today's coding faux pas is the King Soopers Balloons ad. Doesn't the developer have a testing server and check their work? This problem causes the area to the left of where the balloons come up to split at approximately 322 pixels from the left edge. So when you scroll, the screen splits right there, and the right goes up but the left doesn't, temporarily. If one refreshes the browser, that goes away.
What do you do when the interstitial blocks your users from reading your site? You're screwed. Unless it's intentional. In that event, you're wasting your bloody time on this viewer. There's text browsers, tor onion router, etc.
