+1 I'm not saying goodbye to Avast, but I was and still am amazed by the whole non-sense with the pirate thing etc... they might be trying to sell the product to 6 years olds... I mean this isn't even funny, but completely pathetic, and ridiculous.

ps: this said, watch the language, I agree with you, but no need to be rude, there are enough words to explain yourself about that okay?

Where is your sense of humour ? I thought it was fun.  Plus it does not detract from Avast's capabilities and you do not have to install it

my sense of humor...there's no humor there that I can see, just cheap "hustling" with kids.

I believe the proper way of saying that in pirate-speak would be "You scalawags, I shan't be acceptin' of yer shenanigans!"
Though to be honest, I thought it was a rather rediculous thing for them to do, and I hope they didn't spend any real amount of time coming up with it (no more than say one person doing the "translation")

How about "Talk dirty to me" language. Now that would be funny!

Lol, i might be biased since i'm around avast! guys for quite some time now, but i find it fun. In fact i love the way how it announces VPS update, even though i had voice and popup disabled before. Also as the timing was right, i was just watching the Pirates of Caribbean trilogy like 2 times last week :P

Donno, Talk like a pirate day with Pirate English "translation" makes AVAST Software closer to the users and not just a multi-million corporation churning out yearly versions of their security software and milking clueless users with it. But i guess not everyone like a more personal company that's delivering free goods to us for years already and hopefully more to come.

I've been around as long as you and since it is not forced upon us, it doesn't even deserve comment. For those who like it-- have fun.

I can see why some people may not find it funny, but you have to remember its optional and its not like they have halted there antivirus production for it so I dont see the harm

also try to keep your temper as its not like the end of world or anything

Ye see, avast is a nautical term and a pirate might say "avast matey"! You scurvy landlubber's who stop by with your scuttlebutt should be put ashore.
