ELV sucks

A friend gave me a link to an ELV product which I copied and pasted into my browsers URL bar. ELV then presented me with this completely useless warning on their webpage:

elv-sucks

Additionally they set a shit load of cookies. Obviously one or more of them are used to prevent this retarded warning.

I wonder why should I run an anti-virus program when I access a website? Especially when my browser is running on a Linux box behind an OpenBSD firewall? I’m sorry but I haven’t seens something this retarded ever.

So my recommendation is:

Fuck ELV. Never ever ever ever never ever buy something from ELV!

Also don’t visit their site, block and delete all their cookies.
