Ahh the FCC, another bloated useless government agency that fails at even the basics of why it's there in the first place.

ever since they introduced their "downloader" to grab programs was the day I stopped using them. At the time is was due to the fact their downloader doesnt understand authenticated proxies. I still wouldnt use it anyway - this simply shows why.  
Its not the cough that carries you off but the coffin they carry you off in.

yeah I had to clean some CNet garbage off of a friend's PC. I'm not 100% sure of the chain of events, but somewhere along the line it had changed their Chrome address bar search engine, which is impossible to change back with just mouse clicks. Since when did CNet start pushing adware? Ridiculous.

Ventured outside of my trusted list of sites a few weeks ago, ended up with 7 trojans. Probably have better odds of not getting a virus in a Bangkok whorehouse over surfing the net these days.
