I was reading through Dicle’s self-induced e-drama on her entry Glowing Like Angels last night, and couldn’t help but laugh. Not necessarily at the post itself — which in truth was pretty tame — but the resulting drama! Now, everyone knows I love to indulge so I got myself hooked right in there… I can’t believe how crap some of the retorts and replies are. In my day we actually made an effort on these things, coming up with creative insults and really getting into the nitty-gritty of why we were right and the respondee (responder?) was wrong. Instead, we’re left with:
Your a cold hearted bitch, die. I don’t see why your trying to put there sites on blast, hmm… maybe because there better than your’s? please… do us all a favor and kill your self :) Oh, you can make a snobby little reply. I really don’t care, I hope you get ran over by a car. LOL!
Anyone else twitching at the repeated abuse of your/you’re and there/their? The only actual insult I can pull from that is “snobby”. Oh noez, how harsh! I was accused of that just this week for calling Lana (see previous entry) a thief. It’s so lame, even a cry-baby would shrug it off.
The drama has also spilled onto the sites of those being called out in the entry, the hilarity being that my name was dragged into it before I’d even SEEN Dicle’s post. How’s that for having a reputation? A quote, from my old friend Kate:
If you honestly have a problem with celebrity images, please don’t be a douche by posting little jemjabella links on my comments “tehehehe”.
Aw. Obviously people who have the good sense to actually listen to what I’m saying are striking a nerve with poor little Kate. She then goes on to say:
How about taking it up with livejournal, a celebrity fansite or maybe perezhilton.com?
Celebrity image theft aside, it’s interesting to see Kate of all people calling those out who mock her publicly. Apparently we should all e-mail her privately. Funny, after posting the Pants Award last year that’s exactly what I did: I fixed her shitty dynamic includes code which had already caused her website to be hacked once. Quickly forgot that though, didn’t she? Was too busy playing ‘Miss Innocent’ to her visitors. At the end of the day Kate, if you can’t take the heat you should stay out of the kitchen. That’s a metaphor by the way, I’ll leave you to work it out.
The really sad thing is the amount of responses to the original post telling Dicle she doesn’t understand real web design. It’s sad, because I think these kids are saying this in all seriousness. They actually believe that cropping up a few PSDs of some stupid famous bitch [insert name here] constitutes “
web design“! I’m not one to burst these little bubbles (who am I kidding?) but the words “celebrity pictures” and “web design” only go together in the real world if you’re actually designing a website FOR a celebrity. No web designer worth their salt would present a client with a mock-up featuring the kind of shit these kids call web design unless they were deliberately trying to get themselves fired.
Anyway, no e-drama would be complete without the fun bingo card (courtesy of Jordie). Let’s fill it in:
Did I miss any?
