Wonder why this is? The Mythbusters love getting to the bottom of a myth, but sometimes the protectors of the myth hold the bigger stick. The crew was all set to air a show about how hackable and trackable RFID chips that are found in many credit cards are, when some big name advertisers stepped in to shut it down. In an undated YouTube video, which , Adam Savage of Mythbusters talks about how the MB's crew sat down for a conference call with Texas Instruments to discuss the tech behind the chips, and were surprised to find also on the line were chief legal reps from Visa, Discover, and American Express. The Discovery Channel was told if the show about RFID chips aired, the major credit card companies would pull all advertising from the cable network. Guess who won that battle? Suffice to say, there was no Mythbusters episode about RFID chips. Source Click here to view the news
How To Increase Your Post Count Without Being Banned Tip#1: Don't just say "Thank you" It's common courtesy to say "Thank you" when, say, someone compliments you. So, let's say you post a picture of yourself. Someone posts a reply saying that you look good. So you respond with "Thank you". That's normal. Only problem is, what do you expect the other person to say? "Thank you, too"? To which you reply "Thank you, three"? See what I mean? Don't just say "Thank you" because it's very nearly a conversation-stopper. It leads to nowhere. What you should do is add something after the "Thank you". For example, as in the case mentioned above, you may add a question like, "Do you think I should have put on pink lipstick to match the color of my pimples?" This will open up a lot of possibilities. Many people can respond to that in many different ways. You can reply and re-reply to their replies. Post count goes up. No, you won't get banned for this. Guaranteed. Q.E.D. isn't it? Note to admin: I have a handful of tips like these. If you don't mind, I will post them as separate threads because each tip is worthy of a discussion by itself. No problemo?
