hmm…I never thought it would happen… lmao… duh. That is a no brainer here and it took them this long to figure it out. They must thought people where dumb not to figure out if you can watch/listen then someone can find a way around it.

Well shove a pickle down my pants and call me “Billy”… people wanting to do something so badly that they end up figuring out a way to do it… just like they have for over a decade… who could have guessed that something like this would happen? Literally every reasonably-intelligent person on earth, what’s who!
