    Flash must die, please help

    Patching Flash again, I love it.

    I also want to avoid hijacks and cyber crime but don't want to make Yahoo my preferred browser while upgrading, thanks very much. At least you didn't propose an anti-virus product, this time. You people really suck, to put it mildly. I will never use any of your products again,

    I'd much rather see Flash eliminated from the internet landscape forever, a bit like the Ebola or smallpox virus. When that becomes the corporate message, please get back to me.

    Anyway, I am now done with Flash, you are uninstalled forever, you dirty little bitch. Don't call again.

    Let's start with The Register

    On The Register homepage right now, there are two separate ads begging me to activate Flash. Nope. Not happening. Perhaps El Reg can notify its advertisers that Flash advertising won't work with its readership. Let's set the example.

      I wonder if it's an opportunistic thing, contingent on browser & OS.

      I'm typing this on an iPad, so there's no way I can see the flash ads. But, when I use Firefox on my laptop, I do not see flash ads either. I do have the flash plugin installed, and it is up to date (the July 14 version), but then I have the plugin set to 'ask to activate'.

      In any case, flash needs to go away, and the best way to achieve it is to show the <strikethrough>awful</strikethrough> SWF* developers and advertisers that they are wasting their time and money because everybody is turning off or unistalling flash.

      * even my auto-correction agrees, inserting "awful" for "swf".
