I don't know if this is the right place for it, but hey. After FF's effective 'reboot' and rebranding, I've noticed the little banner at the top of the screen both here on the forums and on JK3files and I'm slightly concerned, to be honest. Instead of a nice way of advertising the latest in FF news and generally important/brilliant tech-y announcements, it seem to be a rush of teenage-angst-inspired nonsense. I've seen updates for a few things that interest me, which is a good sign. I'll put off buying Halo Reach, but at least now I know why half the people on my XBL Friends List have stopped replying to messages. I liked the film 'Machete' for its ridiculous, over-gory nature (no doubt someone somewhere has complained about violence and humour being linked) but even the ad for that focused on Michelle Rodriguez and Lindsay Lohan. Most of the notifications refer to cage fight ring girls and a particularly worrying one this week referenced... 'MILF Monday.' What next? Celebrity upskirt shots? Don't get me wrong - I like girls. I just think that this is lowering the tone of FF. It seems like the sort of stuff that might interest a 12 year old boy who has just discovered what a 'bajingo' is. Am I the only one who thinks this?

You're not alone, to be honest. I have many concerns of my own aside from this - this is actually a minor issue to me.
I'm not a member of FF's or Break's corporate circles. So I'll do the only thing I can - just sit back and watch.
