With spring on the way everyone needs to get outside and get some fresh air and forget Netflix. I canceled mine because it's hard to find something to watch without being slapped in the face with some alternative or diverse life style. Be who you want just quit throwing it in everyone's face.

If you kick enough people off of the service it won't be long before you won't have a service to kick people off of. Just leave it like it is. No more than 4 devices can use an account at the same time. Or they could start charging for the amount of time that you use the service.

Why does Netflix even care when they already have a cap on the number of screens? This seems to do nothing but annoy the customer base.

Netflix: "We are really unpopular right now, people are switching off in droves. What are we going to do?! Oh I know, let's make using our service more annoying! That'll bring them all back!"

Who cares, kicked that service to the curb years back. Garbage content, and too Marxist for me. Their programming is race baiting and geared to a Liberal mind set. No thanks.

It's an onscreen prompt, I haven't read anything yet about shutting off services to potential abusers. "You promise you're not lying to us? Ok, then you can click yes."

There are so many other options anyway...I may just go back to DVDs.... They're much cheaper anyways, and there's always an exchange with the neighbors.
