Actually, eBaums is less than harmless. Almost all the content on that site has been stolen from other sources. The actual programmers, designers, and artists who created all those flash animations you like, took the photos you appreciate, and manipulated photos to create the humor you're laughing at are being screwed over. Each page view on Ebaums earns money from advertisers. While this may not matter to you, it matters to those who spent countless hours creating the material, only to have it stolen, to have their watermarks removed, and to have Ebaums brand it with their own watermark... essentially claiming credit for something they didn't have a damn thing to do with.

Ever had credit for something you'd created stolen by somebody else? Particularly something you've worked hard on? Now imagine what that's like, tossing in the fact that somebody else is being paid WELL for your creation.

Be aware of what you're supporting.
