Better Together gets mauled for its #PatronisingBTLady ad
I've previously been saying "From a self-interest PoV, I'd probably benefit from Scotland staying, but if I lived there, I'd vote Yes in a shot" But after the sheer level of talking down to people in that ad, fuck it, run free Scotland, and I'll just blame the idiots who made this.

Allowing acceptable ads in Adblock Plus
'Starting with Adblock Plus 2.0 you can allow some of the advertising that is considered not annoying. By doing this you support websites that rely on advertising but choose to do it in a non-intrusive way. And you give these websites an advantage over their competition which encourages other websites to use non-intrusive advertising as well.'

Sounds good. I block individual ads using Opera's build in blocker, but tend to only do it if the ads are irritating me.

BBC News - Bono One charity advert faces TV ban
Apparently you're not allowed to air adverts if they're designed to pressure politicians. Which seems a bit silly.

Neo-Nazis tricked by T-shirt that changed message after it was washed
Attendees at a nationalist, right-wing concert in Germany were duped into wearing souvenir T-shirts that at first bared a pro-nationalist stance and symbology but later revealed an anti-far right message offering assistance after they had been washed.
