Worthless, indeed.
2002-03-21 08:44:51 AM  
Wow! An Ananova post.
2002-03-21 08:46:22 AM  
OK, I'm curious... What is the "long story" about Ananova and Fark? Were they rippin Drew off or something? Or has the Drew Curtis Presents Drew Curtis' Fark legal team instructed Fark management to keep quiet about all of this?
2002-03-21 08:46:44 AM  
An Ananova post about Ananova being worthless? Obvious, indeed.
2002-03-21 08:47:03 AM  
And I quote from the submissions page, "Articles from the following sites will automatically be rejected:...Ananova (long story) ."
Anyone care to tell the long story to a newbie?
2002-03-21 08:48:23 AM  
End the Jihad Drew and bring us those tasty tidbits of poorly researched or just plain made up shiat that only Ananova can deliver.
2002-03-21 08:51:06 AM  
Ananova was ripping stories from fark, writting stories on them and then posting them.

This was found by Drew linking to a 2 years old article (I don't recall what) on some newspaper and poof, few hours later there it was on Ananova, like it was yesterdays news.

They of course did all this without crediting either fark OR the actual article fark linked to.
2002-03-21 08:56:19 AM  
They did the same thing with Japan Today too. The editors at Annanova are arrogant gits.

2002-03-21 08:57:16 AM  
Monkyman: Thanks. That wasn't so "long".

Worthless bastards!
2002-03-21 09:38:27 AM  
shut the hell up
2002-03-21 09:38:56 AM  
So sad. Now Harmonia is reduced to wtiting silly rants in completely unrelated topics.
2002-03-21 09:39:45 AM  
wtiting = writing
2002-03-21 09:39:51 AM  
Harmonia is hepped up on goof balls.
2002-03-21 09:43:20 AM  
Funny how many conservative media shows there are complaining about how little time conservatives get on the "Liberal" media.
2002-03-21 09:43:23 AM  

Excellent! Can I use this "proof" of liberal media bias in other forums? (Properly attributed , of course)
2002-03-21 09:44:18 AM  
the media is right-wing pimps working for Bush.
2002-03-21 09:44:48 AM  
I got it from another forum Silverlock (I dont have access to US TV schedules) so go for it!
2002-03-21 09:46:38 AM  
Thanks for the summary, there, Harmonia. I wasn't sure where you stood based solely on your previous post.
2002-03-21 09:52:34 AM  
harmonia daddy wanted a boy didn't he. you cut your hair short and played in the mud but he just wouldn't love you like he would have done a real you're angry...successful happy people are gonna have to pay.
2002-03-21 09:55:42 AM  
As far as rants go, Harmonia has nailed the truth of it.
2002-03-21 09:58:56 AM  
harmonia probably never played dodgeball as a kid, or if he did, he sucked at it.
2002-03-21 09:59:28 AM  
I am a boy Batfink, do try and keep up.
2002-03-21 10:03:32 AM  
quiz: what is harmonia's occupation:

a) tobacconist
b) haberdasher
c) lorry driver
d) unemployed
e) guy who likes to answer a question with another question
2002-03-21 10:16:02 AM  
Technical consultant Cliff.
2002-03-21 10:23:34 AM  
Damm Harmonia! Why'd you post all that text?
2002-03-21 10:24:20 AM  
i just wanted to use words that sound british
2002-03-21 10:24:58 AM  
harmoniahey ill accept you're a boy but it's not my love that you need. it must have been hard for you to be rejected at such a young age but you've just got to move on....take up badminton or something
2002-03-21 10:30:52 AM  
(wandering vaguely back towards topic of thread)

Mr Allwood says: "This is absolutely no reflection on the underlying strength of all the businesses that have been written down."

In otherwords, although business is technically worthless, its worthlessness is not an indication that it is worthless. WHAT THE HELL ELSE can it be a reflection on if not underlying strength.
2002-03-21 10:34:52 AM  

Thats a cissy game m8, I prefer 5's at footie.
2002-03-21 10:45:33 AM  
"I prefer 5's at footie."

But being in Scotland, what would you know about footie ;)

[Disclaimer: I don't care much for kicking pig skins, I just like winding ppl up about it]
2002-03-21 10:47:45 AM  

Tigger: I think the Orange bloke meant something along the lines of "the stock market thinks they're worthless, but we don't. Honest".
2002-03-21 10:48:33 AM  
and in the excitement, I've completely forgotten how to use HTML. Bum.
2002-03-21 10:56:20 AM  
Hey Harmonia, is that Bartcop material? Looks familar.

Proof Harmonia (and Bartcop) are right.

How the hell did we get thrown into a political debate
2002-03-21 11:10:43 AM  
looking back at this thread, I think it would be a stretch to call it a "political debate"

but to answer your question, harmonia started it with his unwarranted text assault.
2002-03-21 11:18:07 AM  
Hey Cliff

Was Haberdasher thrown into your list by chance, or was that a Spinal Tap reference?

I'm sorry, we're all out of brown. Do you wear black?
2002-03-21 11:22:08 AM  
Hey wait! This is easier._Potemkin

My complaint about Harmonia
It will truly surprise some people to hear me say this, but I insist that Harmonia is full of it. Wait! Before you dismiss me as self-indulgent, hear me out. While it is essential -- and among my highest priorities -- to ratchet up our level of understanding, honor means nothing to him. Principles mean nothing to him. All he cares about is how to reduce human beings to the status of domestic animals. His peons have learned their scripts well, and the rhetoric comes gushing forth with little provocation. I hope I haven't bored you by writing an entire letter about Harmonia. Still, this letter was the best way to explain to you that Harmonia's refusal to admit the obvious -- that his underlings are cut from the same mold as sordid conniving-types -- must rank as one of the most horny disinformation campaigns in history.
2002-03-21 11:22:21 AM  
by chance. I have never seen Spinal Tap
2002-03-21 11:22:55 AM  
I am very sad.
2002-03-21 11:26:49 AM  
you said horny
2002-03-21 11:37:25 AM  
the media is a joke anyway, and politics are all about money and inside deals. maybe when harmonia realizes this he'll become disillusioned like me and will stop RUINING PERFECTLY GOOD THREADS WITH OFF-TOPIC RANTS.
2002-03-21 11:46:52 AM  
I am presently hard at work on a new Harmonia tag. it will be posted shortly.
2002-03-21 11:54:27 AM  
here we go.

Kerouac, how touching.

You have my dimples just right too.


2002-03-21 12:09:56 PM  
To all those who asked... not sure if this has been answered already, 'cause I'm too lazy to check... but the reason Fark doesn't post stories from Ananova is because at one point Ananova was stealing articles from Fark and not crediting them... Basically, Fark had posted several year/+ old stories from previous Fark submissions, then on the same day, Ananova also reported some of these very same stories, despite the fact that most of them were over a year old...
2002-03-21 12:34:07 PM  
Yeah we got it, thanks all the same though, i was curious why the Ananova stuff suddenly stopped.

NEVER MESS WITH THE POWER OF FARK! See how worthless they have become without the tens of thousands of Fark referrals a day.
2002-03-21 01:34:56 PM  
It's common practice for news organizations to rip one another off.
2002-03-21 02:42:36 PM  
So sad that soon Annanova will be a Virtual unemployed crackhead welfare mom.

Off topic , I like how Harmonia makes one cameo appearance and Fark Nation starts frothing at the mouth. Harmonia aims to get attention, he shoots, he SCORES !!!! Harmonia, the Farker Farkers love to hate. Here's a beer for you Mr right / left wing Harmonia - man (can't read your posts really, too goddam long)

Would say World Citizen is a close second to him but I think WC is on sabbatical, or one of those Catholic priest rounded up for paedophilia and had his computer confiscated.
2002-03-21 02:57:51 PM  
About a year ago I sent an email to Drew complaining that Annanova never provided sources for their stories and are a waste of time. Too bad we still have news sites on Fark that are just as bad.
2002-03-21 04:00:41 PM  
oh, you sent an e-mail, did ya? I'm very proud of you!
2002-03-21 04:16:50 PM  
good god, get a life you guys
