Funny, yeah, but it's astroturf.

Oh wow, I posted this link on a comment a few days ago. It's amazing how these things get around. I also originally posted this link with it which I think is damned funny too.

HA! This is a funny site, and it has put me off using my phone in public.

Sorry Dodgy, I wasn't paying attention to that thread. Didn't mean to steal your link ....

I assume dhartung meant "astroturf" in terms of a corporate ad campaign made to look like an independent protest -- "artificial grassroots".

I'm not offended at all (and anyway I nicked it from cruel.com!).

This site is funny as a gag, I doubt it isn't one. Frankly this anti-cellphone stuff is pretty weak. Instead of getting mad at the cellphones you should get mad at the people who don't know human decency and use the phone at inapproriate times, or causes a hold up somewhere, like in line at a register. (Oh and I love "astroturf".)
