Paper Clips v. The Internets

I watched Paper Clips on DVD this week. I had an interesting experience surrounding the rental of the DVD.

As I was participating in my rental transaction with the Blockbuster employee he informed me that they were just putting Paper Clips back on the shelf. He said that Blockbuster had previously asked them to remove it.


So upon returning home I fired up the Google thing and found a paragraph from the Anti-Defamation League mentioning that Blockbuster's removal of Paper Clips from shelves was just a rumor.

The ADL posting was two months prior to my rental.

I suppose Mahmoud Ahmadinejad could have complained. I sure didn’t find anything offensive.
