My entry last night was more tongue in cheek than anything else, hence the 'amused' for mood.

For those that are wondering, I was pointed to fm_status when tugrik originally reported the outage. He had been very clear with what the problem was, and some idiot posted 'So what do you think it is?'. Well. I couldn't resist replying to that comment with something mocking. It's not a very nice thing to mock someone that is clearly intellectually inferior, or at least doesn't have as high a level of reading comprehension. Hence my entry.

It turned into a really fun icon-war with feren, amichele2, and a few sallies from roho; if anyone wishes to view the carnage, please do so before Saturday. I will be deleting quite a few of the icons, as they aren't my usual style, and some of them are decidedly Not Work Friendly.

Thanks to those that did take me seriously- reassurance of my inherent goodness of nature are always nice, even if the person giving them is more gracious than they should be. I'm not as kind to my fellow man as I should, I'm still a work in progress, as it were.

And now, since I've procrastinated long enough, I go back to work!

I'm begging you, please don't delete the 'not work friendly' icons! Sometimes it's my only source of affordable porn.

;p

My god man, you're on the internet! The whole purpose of Usenet newsgroups is free porn!

Well, that and MP3's. But mostly just porn.

Alton Brown, my hero! Nah, Usenet is really too moody, and I never get what I want. Uhm... not certain I should post *where* one would go for good porn, depending on if you prefer written or visual...

What classification does a.f.f. fall into, then?

Blatant stupidity and public displays of acute retardation.

So what you're really saying here is that Usenet can be divided into not two but three services: MP3s, porn and mind-numbing asshatitude.

That pretty much sums it up, yes.

I tend to regard Usenet as an interesting but decaying artifact, an object lesson in the evils of the lowest common denominator.

I dunno... usenet is more about advertising where you can find porn than actually finding good porn to begin with. It's one long infomercial that just leaves you feeling like you wasted your time and you still don't know why oxyclean works.

Huh. I've never had a problem finding an overflowing cupful of whatever type of porn I was looking for on usenet -- there's such a huge variety (think alt.binaries.pictures.erotica.hamsters-and-duct-tape and you'll see my point)! But hey, whatever blows up your kilt.
