They deserved to be banned.
Now if they had only done it a few times and it was when no presentation was going on, you could say it's a little bit funny. But when you have
entire walls of TV's shutting off during important presentations when companies are talking about new products, you're taking it too far and you're
just showing that you have no respect at all for the people who are on stage trying to give a presentation.
The video Gizmodo put up doesn't show everything they did. I have a friend who is an admin on a tech forum who was there and he said it was funny at
first when only a couple were turning off. Then for a little while it seemed like it was happening every 5 minutes and that there had to be more than
one person doing it because it would happen in different areas at the same time. Then when presentations would start is when it got really heated and
wouldn't stop. He said one guy got soo angry he threw his remote he was using to go through his presentation and saw a woman get soo upset she
slammed a laptop.
Stuff like this was funny when I was 15 and did it at my high school. Which was around 13 years ago. I'm 28 now and don't find it very funny when it
can cause people to get fired.
