+@mattdpearce This needs a Law and Order SVU @FINALLEVEL ("Ice T") Meme like no other.
+@sharknoises Hahahahaha 69 though. (Appropriate reaction? I think so. *goes back to illegal streaming or whatever*)
You've been watched by, you've been streamed by, a cool striminal
+@pieandbeans 69% of millennials are the sex number
+@_bigjerk at first: "haha good one, no one would actually pen that" but then
strime is strimulating
+@parhamr NO. WE DO NOT CALL THEM STRIMINALS.
+@sam_kriss and we are always going to get it because we are good at internets
+@AMWUFFY it doesn’t help that the what, when, and where aren’t often provided by the companies that produce the content.
+@inspectorvector Won't somebody please think of the strildren?
+@inspectorvector with 4G you can be a smooth striminal..... #GetMyCoat
+@remotevoices Are Millienials ruining shitty geo-locked streaming media policies? [Gods, I hope so]
easy to mock when you're a *checks best practice guide* ... Knock-off Nigel?
+@AMWUFFY "young millennials"
If many media providers didn't make it so difficult to access their products, people wouldn't go elsewhere to find it.
+@ADAMATOMIC Not to be confused with "smoominals", or smooth millennial criminals.
+@Lewmzi You've been struck by, a smooth striminal!
I think they mean 69% of young millenials use YouTube, Pandora + others; and 60% use their parent's Netflix, Hulu, etc

Not on my damn watch.
Buddy, this is what I came here for
I didn't choose the striminal's life; the striminal life chose me.
now strealing in HD
watching one right now tbh
+@pmarca a) 69% != 60% b) "young millenials"? (is there another kind?) c) theoatmeal.com/comics/game_of… d) imgur.com/GxzeV
also the quality from legal sources is often fucking garbage
i've paid for HD stuff on amazon and paid for streaming services and then the quality is often trash
when the choice is "perfect quality and free" vs "shitty quality and paid" then, well...
really sucks for when i want to pay to support something i like and they give me no good choices :/
the oatmeal comic tho!...same for everything; music, games, tv, movies. Paying customers get punished...
allegedly millenial as a phrase refers to anyone born post 1980, so if the older ones are 36, then yeah there'd be 'young'
It says “Of that group,”
How many percent? ...Nice.
+@psygnisfive you've been hit by.......... a smooth striminal
+@pmarca was this self-reporting? 90% of males millennials hav giant penis
ahhahaha oh god i almost certain that was written as a joke but then it got by the editor and welp
reports like this are great because they show the increasingly desperate attempts of old media to get their heads round modern kids
guess I'm a young rebel, or Yebel, now. *sigh* portmanteaus suck.

(this is from a report by @anatomymedia on ad blocking and tv piracy, melodramatically entitled "Millennials At The Gate")
oh my god it is real
you're making this up
you can almost see 2 entire words of content on this page
With websites like that, I wonder who DOESN'T use #adblock'ers... @hilare_belloc @anatomymedia
pssst Firefox mobile supports plugins, so you can block ads on your phone/tablet
Not an Aged Care newsletter?
you've been hit by
It’s ridiculous to imply that this is criminal activity. Instead, how about USUC (“Users of Streamed Unauthorized Content”)?
"Why do people use Ad Blockers?" "To avoid Ads" is supposed to be some sort of deep insight into our evil brains
+@willmenaker A "whopping" 60%. Golly, that sure is a lot.
+@BRENTHOR they watch dumb ass movies for free, and the cops can't even arrest them
not calling them 'criminal streamers' or 'creamers' is a missed opportunity IMO
+@Juicebox_FGC are they smooth striminals tho?
Strimillenials
+@pixelatedboat the way they say "they watch what they want, when they want" sounds so petulant.
let's "take back" striminals like racists "took back" deplorable

+@dsturnbull this is a word crime worse than stories with a z
That's right. Fuck Comcast.
Not as though they work, how would they pay?
God damn, they really hate the idea of freedom. Like that is the main takeaway. @hilare_belloc
+@redbloodphill they might be able to avoid this issue if they didn't make people wait weeks or even months to stream legally.
