Some news websites now push modal JS dialogs in your face, claiming: "Blocking Ads hurts the sites you love! Please whitelist us!". Um… No.When I'm meeting the new client for the first time. http://t.co/4c5jbuJczDTwitter is like a city. You can live in a nice neighbourhood, but take the wrong turning and boy does it get ugly.

.@novolume sorry, it was highly reposted on tumblr. Only @iamgaz told me later which I RTd. https://t.co/Abaj3Vqjx4@thinman 😛@thinman I guess so, yes. Although "any context" is stretching it thinly :P After all, we DO have some pride, right?@thinman Sure it is lazy. But design biz is not art. It's art with a purpose, i.e. achieving the client's goals. Sometimes "copying" is ok.Coming of age is when you start referring to older tweets of yourself instead of replying. 😜@thinman Right. https://t.co/oTUAZo7WFp@juliendelrio Fair point. Still, once your gym's website looks like your lawyer's like your agency's like your butcher's like your sister's…@juliendelrio No, it's not very good for a business.
