    To misquote Stacy, auto-play videos are evil.

  • Good Stuff

    The term/concept of channeling of psychic energy does not work for me. A good example is that President Obama is alive and well.

    However, I would like to make an experiment. It’s easy, just think 53 and goodstuff

  • Good Stuff

    LoL for the lottery tomorrow

  • John Bradley

    Please to be killing the auto-play video, at least so it’s not on the main page. Thanks.

  • Dianna Deeley

    Oh, please, kill the autoplay thing! It’s incessantly playing, and it is driving me bats! Please, Wombat, you’re my only hope!

  • Clavius

    Kill the autoplay. Do you read the comments???

  • Aaron “Worthing” Walker

    hey, video is auto-starting under the sports heading. i know a lot of people hate that sort of thing, so…

  • Wombat_socho

    I can’t figure out how to figure out which vids are auto-play or how to shut them off. 🙁

  • Wombat_socho

    Yes, in fact I do. I’m not on here 24×7, though, so some patience would be appreciated.

  • Wombat_socho

    I’m waiting for somebody to completely lose their mind over it…no, not really. I’ll deal with it.

  • Wombat_socho

    Done.

  • Dandapani

    That’s why they are evil 🙂

  • Wombat_socho

    I think I may forgo their dubious pleasures from now on. :/

  • Good Stuff

    still thinking?
