2008-02-23 20:34:32   Re: the UNheralded return of late fees to Rochester Blockbuster Video stores...the clerk on the phone said they placed a sign explaining this policy up 30 days before it was enacted, and took it down 30 days later. Are we to blame if the clerk didn't make this new policy as clear as the dozens of commercials we viewed on national TV? We're to blame if we didn't patronize the store during that 60 day period when the new policy (probably in fine print) was announced? —MikeSmith

I far prefer Video Barn or Penfield Public Library (although I'm a bit biased as far as the library goes since I'm an employee, haha). —AdrienneDahler

That got remedied in the years since, but when I was out West I noticed that Hollywood usually had a better selection. Blockbuster is almost single-handedly responsible for the death of the NC17 rating. A rating which was intended to allow adult films of substance a rating other than X. What's odder about this is that they generally carry unrated films with similar content (that generally are not as good films as those that would get the NC17 rating). —TimRoy
