    In a strange turn of events fellow forum Monster fish keepers is being sued for the use of the monster name and potentially could destroy that aspect of our hobby and it's fellow forum group. In an act of solidarity between a fellow forum I ask you to take action and boycott monster energy drinks. The stuff's disgusting anyway and it's always idiots I see covered in it's branding, lets not let them harm our hobby, it's not like anyone is getting confused about it anyway and if they are then frankly they need help.

    I was reading about this in I think it was the economist and they called them patent trolls, kinda fits judging by their actions as of late.
    Juri, how could you do that, it tastes so bad?!

    I use half of a five hour energy drink for staying awake while driving...don't have to consume so much sugar that way. (y) Or a redbull....all of them taste poorly.

    It is sad the company has to be like that...it could be a positive affiliation. They could have sponsored the forum or done something positive with it instead.

    Have a banana, the potassium in them is meant to be brilliant for keeping you focused.

    Your right, they could have, but they're of the mind set that "we're here to wipe out everything that has the audacity of using the word monster" sad fact that the legal system allows such nonsense.
