Wow, you're kinda dumb and selfish.

See, in the real world, where mommy and daddy don't pay for everything, some people actually have sites that need to be up and remain accessible to everybody. You might not put too much thought into a POS temporary website you've set up that probably didn't get much traffic, but imagine if you took any popular website on the net, and instantly increased the number of requests to its server thirty-fold. It would struggle. One or two people accessing your small-traffic site with modified configs aren't going to bring you down, but this is the sort of thing that can become very problematic to admins if it grows in popularity.

And really, that .03 seconds that you save...do you really need that? Perhaps a better ISP would be a more considerate solution.

Like I said, I'm not using those configurations. My speeds are fast, and my ISP is privately owned. No interference from big companies, and great service. Thanks, though.

Re: Get The Most Out Of FireFox (BroadBand Users)

So, you posted in the thread to point out my aggrivation over seeing people diving into these setting headfirst? With nothing to add except to play nerd cop in a thread on the internet?

Did you even have a point?

Nope. No point. Looking to waste time before another year of nothingness.

I love Firefox. It just ticks me off to see people messing with it with complete disgregard for the consequences of their actions.

And while we all have the right to be assholes, we also have the right to call others out as assholes when the time is right ;D

Re: Get The Most Out Of FireFox (BroadBand Users)

I must mention (in regards to wattershed's comment about undeath's "Mommy and Daddy paying for everything") that Undeath lives in a trailer outside his house.



Thanks for popping in wattershed.
