WTF happened to the Jesse Jackson Story?!?!!
2001-09-27 10:31:25 AM  
I think I had some classified payments that didn't get linked up to any particular link. So if yours isn't listed and you paid let me know
2001-09-27 10:32:57 AM  
Neutrino : It had to be removed so we could hear more about these bloody classified ads.
2001-09-27 10:42:22 AM  
LAF, I only saw that story after Netrino mentioned it had disappeared...
2001-09-27 10:43:05 AM  
OOPS! Sorry Neutrino! I hate misspelling names!
2001-09-27 10:59:26 AM  
I don't like where this is going......

2001-09-27 11:20:23 AM  
as long as the boobies outnumber the ads, im happy.
2001-09-27 11:24:51 AM  
Reading advertisments makes you sterile.
2001-09-27 11:25:56 AM  
is it just me or are we having fewer links put up than before? it's 4.30pm here & I for one am bored of work.
2001-09-27 11:30:08 AM  
Well Londongirl that all depends if you are into the boobies links, but I was also thinking it seemed a little drab. Could just be a bad day, (one time when there were not enough stupid people in the world). Lets hope the FARK party was not a farewell to the FARK we have come to love
2001-09-27 11:32:09 AM  
Well I submitted a link which I thought was hilarious (by a guy at the BBc website) & as it hasn't been put up (sniff) here it is. it will make you happy and joyful in this mean old world.
2001-09-27 11:42:48 AM  
Londongirl : That site is awesome! I'm planning to make that one of my daily visits on the Web. Too bad we have to pay for good links now.
2001-09-27 11:44:15 AM  
May need to have hung around the BBC website a lot to fully get it. But I had a good laugh.
2001-09-27 11:44:15 AM  
Wow, boobie ads have taken over. Now I realize how refreshing it was NOT to have any ads. Hmm.
2001-09-27 11:47:18 AM  
London Girl, I posted that same one yesterday. Me thinks that adverts have become very important all of a sudden
2001-09-27 11:51:39 AM  
Drew: I'm glad to see that people are buying ads. Clearly running Fark like a PBS station wasn't going to defray the operating costs in any significant way.

Still, it doesn't take a math whiz to calculate that the current earnings from the classifieds aren't paying for more than a few six-packs. In any case, I'm going to check on the click-throughs when my week is up, and if it's good, I'll encourage the owner of the site to pony up the cash for an extended run.
2001-09-27 11:54:05 AM  
Sniff,,,,sniff sniff. Me smells a conspiracy. More ads, less posts. Hmmmmmmm.

Could this be the end of the Fark of old?
Could this be the dawning of FarkXP? (X-tra Promotions)
Oh for the days of 75 posts and 15 comments.
Now, it's the other way around.
2001-09-27 11:58:50 AM  
well I for one get very bored very fast so I would like MORE FUN.

but if we all put links in the posts... subvert the system man!
2001-09-27 12:01:37 PM  
Look with all the work he does I see no hassel in Drew making a buck or two.

Balancing that so that it does not cause a fall off in quality or community will be tricky if he gets it wrong FARK will kill itself and something else will come along to replace it.

Why was the site created in the first place?
2001-09-27 12:04:59 PM  
To show off a gopher's nuts.
2001-09-27 12:05:23 PM  
fair do's but it is the balance. just that it's been the same for the last couple of afternoons - about 3 hour pause with no new posts just when I really need something to stop self dying of boredom. wail. guess I should make my own entertainment

having said that i guess it's probably mid morning tea/beer/spliff break where Drew is.
2001-09-27 12:07:19 PM  
It can't be that nobody is submitting, I know I did...did you guys know we're having more riots here in tha nati? Another curfew till Friday, too.
2001-09-27 12:09:34 PM  
Riots? Curfew? really? I'm beginning to wonder if millennium world craziness just came late. what are the riots about?
2001-09-27 12:10:40 PM  
I have submitted a few things this afternoon (uk time) perhaps it will pick up in a bit <hopes>
2001-09-27 12:13:22 PM  
mmm, me too.

Tulip, you coming to the pub next Fri for London Fark Beerfest?
2001-09-27 12:13:32 PM  
a few months ago an unarmed black kid was running from a cop and the cop shot and killed was the 15th black kid killed by Cincinnati police in a very short period of time...the kid had about a dozen warrants out for his arrest but nothing more serious than a parking ticket...the officer was acquitted yesterday so like the Whitesnake song: here we go again
2001-09-27 12:13:53 PM  
If I had a community like this I would look to milk it for all it was worth but then again I am an evil CAPITALIST.

Lets see how it goes... If it gets too bad we all go elsewhere, it helps no one if we just moan. Maybe alternative suggestions etc...
2001-09-27 12:17:58 PM  
Id rather donate a few quid every now and then, than see the ads.

and im skint and a tight arse!
2001-09-27 12:18:17 PM  
LondonGirl, email me, do we know an exact location yet?
2001-09-27 12:19:28 PM  
I don't mind ads as long as we get links. & here we go!

midget: nightmare. we have grown men in Ireland ganging up to bully 7 year olds for being catholic. anyone else despair?
2001-09-27 12:20:45 PM  
Notice its all the Brits biatching here and none of our Yankee brethren are joining in.
2001-09-27 12:24:22 PM  
Tulip (& all Londoners) Kings Head, Gerrard St, chinatown. Friday week. I suppose from 6ish?
2001-09-27 12:25:13 PM  
our Yank brethren have ust started the day, whereas we're all jaded by doing some work.

actually I'm just killing time pre piss-up.
2001-09-27 12:26:15 PM  
thanks londongirl, see you there! Are we all going to wear fark badges or something!!!
2001-09-27 12:35:28 PM  
FatTulip you worry me..
2001-09-27 12:42:38 PM  
I paid, and am not listed, I believe.
2001-09-27 12:58:17 PM  
Damn! Sure wish I could come to the UK Fark beerbash. My wife and I spent a week in London in April. It was wet, cold and we drank a lot of booze....we loved it! Have fun y'all!
2001-09-27 01:10:46 PM  
I've been biatching, and I'm in the U.S.
2001-09-27 01:45:51 PM  
anyone interested in a minneapolis-st.paul FARKer party ???
i know British and Cowboybebop are Twin Cities folk.....
2001-09-27 02:40:32 PM  
Shouldn't this be a "plug" instead of "cool"?
2001-09-27 02:45:21 PM  
It should say $$$

Since I'm safely embedded in the Fark ways now, I suggest we cease the flood of new members after 10,000. It's good for thinning out the ranks of the newbie, and we'll have a truly knowledgable community of Farkers in a few months.
