St_Francis_P: She knows that a fool and his money are soon parted. The lack of integrity is hardly surprising.
Happy Hours: scam artists on kickstarter?I'm shocked!
Benevolent Misanthrope: Happy Hours: scam artists on kickstarter?I'm shocked!Indeed. I see kickstarter on the same level as Quibids these days - which is sad, because it could be and has been great. But every kickstart I've seen in the last few years has been someone who could afford what they're kickstarting, but puts it out there to see if idiots will buy it for them for a minimal return ($5 or less, or something like "I'll send you a thank you note" for a $5,000 pledge, for example).
SockMonkeyHolocaust: Doesn't she know that all she had to do was post it to Fark and suckers would fall over themselves to throw money at the cause?
Happy Hours: Quibids, when I first saw their commercials sounded too good to be true. So I looked into it a little bit and it just had scam written all over it. I don't believe for a second that I can get an iPad for $15.
Happy Hours: I also had Enron stock at one point too. They seemed legit. I was a fool.
Shostie: Happy Hours: I also had Enron stock at one point too. They seemed legit. I was a fool.I wouldn't beat yourself up over Enron too much. Very few people actually understood that the company was on an unsustainable path. Anyone who spoke up was shouted down. It was a mess.
ThunderPelvis: Pffft, everybody knows that little girls are over the world are prevented from even turning their computers ON by inconsiderate, sexist, dick-joke-making oppressors at programming conventions.
Happy Hours: I could probably write an entire book about how my trust has been destroyed - everything from cheating girlfriends and gold diggers to dishonest companies.Hmm....I wonder if I could get someone on Kickstarter to finance this book.
gameshowhost: Didn't some Farker just ask for money TO GO ON A JOYRIDE AROUND THE COUNTRY in return for some shiatty photos?
jake_lex: gameshowhost: Didn't some Farker just ask for money TO GO ON A JOYRIDE AROUND THE COUNTRY in return for some shiatty photos?Yeah, but I don't think that he pretended it was for some progressive cause or for some greater good, it was just so that other people would pay for him to go get farked up all over the country.
YoOjo: Rich people don't like paying for stuff unless they absolutely have to, fishes like swimming, sky likes being blue etc...
WhippingBoy: Feminism is about to eat itself.
Happy Hours: scam artists on kickstarter? I'm shocked!
Tumunga: SockMonkeyHolocaust: Doesn't she know that all she had to do was post it to Fark and suckers would fall over themselves to throw money at the cause?Or say she wants to get Uncle Biden a Trans-Am./do all the little girls call him, "Uncle"?
albatros183: She wants to write her own RPG, $800, Notebooks and pencils sure have gone up in price since the last time I looked/Off my lawn git!
