Davidson got even though by changing the URL of the images so that McCain’s site displayed what’s post up above.

NEW YORK (FORTUNE) – On Wednesday night, Gene Munster was thinking
about going to the movies; but he did something else instead. He spent
$1.99 to watch a campy 1960s TV show on his laptop. The first season of
the Munsters — a comedy about a family of monsters and their struggles

Actualy makes sense to me. He should have been given a warning first if that’s what the department has done in the past with other cases. It doesn’t say for how long he had been doing it though.
