  • Feb 11 2010 Fubar sure was unique and Special, but blanking your computer once is enough, it would be nice if we can file class action suite against Fubar instead of submitting a federal claim (witch I haven't submit, have you?)Hopefully the court can rule out since, creative work of many people that saved on they computers can not be fully represented by monetary compensations, Fubar employees have to be out butlers for a week !
