    Yeah probably.

    Still, it's good to know some people still have brains.

    Yeah, a pity we (NZ) didn't stand up to them

    But it'll come around to bite them in the a.r.s.e., pissing off your customers is not a good way to grow a business.

    We are not the 'customers' of the government. They are the ones at the top who 'do the telling' and we are 'everyone else'

    Funnily enough, that is not the definition of democracy.

    Huh?? How did you get that from what I said?

    By "them" I meant the motion picture industry, and by "we (NZ)" I meant our government in particular (they should have told the Yanks to stick their

    antidemocratic crap (and bribe money?)) and us as well (we should have done what the Europeans did (protested)), but no, we just laid down and took it up

    the ****.
