What ad campaign was that?

A virtue signalling ad berating men for "toxic masculinity" and they used those words. It went down as well as Del in a ......well anywhere and their share price tanked immediately after.

The razor companies aren't too happy about feminists cultivating big hairy fannies, unshaven armpits and legs that look like they belong to Chewbacca - not to mention transwomen who feel the need to grow a huge beard.

Anyone remember that nude picture of the absolute hound with the giant muff that was a bit of a meme around here about a decade ago? It looked like the Jackson Five were using her box as a rehearsal room. It certainly looked big enough.

Yeah they do the absolute bastards.
I bought a generic, cheaper cartridge for a printer a while back, it was exactly the same as the manufacturers, but when I put it in I got a cartridge not recognised message.
So I popped out the chip from the old one and stuck it in the new cartridge.
I then got a message saying the ink had run out again.

Trouble is that Cartridge World seems to have gone bust. I always used to get my ink from them. But the two shops local to me have both gone.

Cartridge World are cunts. They're supposed to be able to refill ink cartridges, so I went in one time with an ink cartridge and the guy there said they can't refill that type, but he could sell me one they could refill next time. So great, I bought that one, probably Cartridge World's own brand or something. Then when it needed refilling I took the cartridge back in and was told they don't refill that type.

I wonder if printers have a series of secret buttonpresses to get them into some sort of service/engineers mode like you can with many other things. I've googled and can't find anything, but I bet such a thing exists. The secret will be closely guarded, because if you could bypass all that bullshit the printer ink industry would be ruined.

I print every I need at work. Sadly, they recently started using some recycled paper that is an off white. So, bought a ream of proper paper and keep that in my locker and use it when needed. One of the small perks of working nights.
