Hey everyone! If you haven't heard about the legal battle this community may potentially be up against, please read about it here:
http://support.monsterfishkeepers.com/

And sign the petition here: http://tiny url.com/c8q6nqs (with no space between tiny and url)

We need your help. Please sign the petition and consider adding a link (unfortunately, it will need to be modified with a space...since tiny url as one word without a space will be censored with asterisks) in to your signature to help spread the word :)

The company that makes Monster Energy Drinks has teamed up with a notorious bully of a litigator, Continental Enterprises, which overreacts at even the slightest mention of a brand name. There haven't been too many instances where Monster has backed down. This is one...three cheers for Vermonster Beer!

...Now, let's make sure we are another!

(thanks to mellowvision for the link to that article, which provided a real frame of reference for me)

Why does bad stuff always happen to good people, and big companies that make millions (or billions) always get away with crap like this.

On an rc forum I was on, there was a brand of battery that was given a bad review by the owner of the site, so they made it so you cant say their brand name on his site and THEY removed the video from HIS youtube account.

This seems similar. Neither forum has the money to take legal action.

Would that black and green colors have to be together? I already see a problem with the add to the left for always quality aquatics.

This is a real :nutkick: to the forums.


I think I know what cans I will be using to test out my new airsoft gun tomorrow
:FIREdevil:

So, I take it you drank them already? ;) You don't want to be buying more, of course!

I would be feeling a little torn if this were Red Bull pulling this nonsense...but it happens to be *blegh* Monster. A fine blend of battery acid, carbonated cough syrup, and food coloring.

I hate the stuff, but my little brother likes it and saved the cans. If I bought more, i wouldnt shoot it, i would take advantage of my teacher having a high explosives license.

For some reason I cant get on AC on my pc.

Edit: working on my pc now.

put a thread up on an rc site, hopefully someone has the heart to just sign the petition. Posting that thread will be worth it if just one person signs it.
