    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I don't understand @brad-t. I found him calling me out about my use of a pejorative term really useful and I now avoid using it. So with that he seems like a dude who is nice and doesn't want to make people feel bad. Yet he also is so randomly mean and catty to people on SF.

    WHY BRAD!?

    What a bummer, hope you had everything backed up to iCloud and security codes so nobody can access your private data [​IMG][​IMG]

    yeah but we don't have a bank holiday and I doubt people know the reason behind thanksgiving, so it seems odd to have it, it would be a bit like celebrating day of the dead, independence day or bonfire night, we already have our own bonfire night in june (midsommer) and "halloween" is in February here (fastelavn), so why take up other countries holidays.

    Don't. Sort wishlist items since the beginning of season. Kop when the time comes.

    Because the US is by far the largest economy in the Western world, and strongly consumption driven. Money doesn't rule all, but it's always a major consideration.

    Yeah, but I don't live in the US, so I don't see a need why would want to celebrate your holidays, besides maybe Spring Brake.

    If I wanted to live in the US, I would move to Seattle and buy CDW and make it into a less douchy version of CG.

    I'm not sure if you are being deliberately obtuse.

    European retailers are taking advantage of the US market. Two things. First, much of Europe is in recession, so growth is in the USA. Second, the inefficiencies in tax law enforcement makes the US market even more attractive.

    Has nothing to do with the actual holiday.

    I think you are missing the point, brick and mortars like grocery stores are doing Black Friday and Thanksgiving big time, which I don't get.


    Online is a completely different beast.

    Hmmm... interesting. I'd love to see the books on that. So, do people actually go for it?

    Yup, all the mayor grocery stores have had adds saying "remember to order your turkey for thanksgiving", a mayor news paper had article about making a traditional thanksgiving turkey and all tv adds for last week have been about Black Friday offers.

    wow, for real? That is incredibly dumb, but then again what else to expect from desperate retailers. Reminds me of when Halloween started being a thing 10ish years ago in France and they pretended it was because of the ancient Celtic tradition that predated the American one. Um, no, but nice try
