    Getting angry when your friends email you with "halo 3 actual gameplay," or a "new xbox beta picture" or perhaps occasionally stating that the link has GTAIV gameplay like how it all began.

    Well here is the simple way to not getting rickrolled in 3 easy ways!

    1. Simply, if there is a link, taking you to, say, youtube, theres no other way to check if its not a rickroll except by either muting your speakers and clicking, or recognizing the video link letters.

    2. On MacRumors, right-click the link and click "Copy Address" and paste it in your browser. If it leads to a youtube link with ytq at the end, it's most likely a rickroll

    3. Click on it and watch the rickroll and pause at 2:07

    Gosh...rickrolling is so last year. It's been replaced by some other song, you can read about it in this Macrumors thread.

    Rickrolling is the worst name for the worst internet phenomenon ever.
