I get that this is a plug and all, but we did this yesterday...

There was so little good music in the 80's it's not worth revisiting. Hence "The Goldbergs" will fail to get carried into the spring.

Seems like a very specific niche.

Those are incredibly lame. Why would they pay to promote that/ They should be embarrassed.

There is a "Plug" tag? How long has that been around?
Is this one of those "if you were a total farker, you would know" things?
 
2013-09-24 02:39:12 PM
It's pathetic when people use memes as marketing tools.

It's been around for a while.  I don't think it's a TF thing.  Maybe just not used too often.

That's not so impressive.

Also the time stamp is wrong.  This posted at around 1:15 east coast time.  Link has been main-paged for 90+ minutes and it's got just over 600 clicks.

/wondering why the time-stamp changed....

Nice try grammar nazi! But you aren't reading it correctly. Maybe quotes would help.

Probably bumped it to try and get some more clicks.

/the number of paid placements masquerading as headlines here is getting ridiculous
//currently, three out of the top ten "headlines" are Featured Partner or Sponsored Link crap
 
2013-09-24 02:52:13 PM
SO I have TF, and the sponsored links make it past adblock? Gee
 
2013-09-24 02:55:18 PM

It's been used twice in the last 24 hours. For the same farking "story".

/I've seen it plenty of times, so I don't think it's that rare
 
2013-09-24 02:56:08 PM
Is the Plug tag broken for the sponsored commentless Buzzfeed articles? Why come it's not used there? I'm guessing there aren't comments for those so they don't get ripped a new one.

Didn't click this one either.

There was tonnes of good music in the '80s.  Its a shame you missed it.

When I first saw the sponsored links, I immediately understood why there were no comments with them. All we do is complain about them. And for good reason. Drew, we understand you need to make the website profitable but don't interrupt our experience. Also, make Total Fark ad free. You can't possibly get $5 per person each month from the advertisers.
 
2013-09-24 03:32:33 PM
See actually what's going on here, they purposefully included a comments link because they thought farkers would come up with better greeing card sayings that they could steal and profit from.

Here's one for you lame ass company:

Hey,
fark you. No fark you. No fark you.

You'll have to do your own editing and replace the a.
 
2013-09-24 04:43:13 PM
dumb show, dumber e-cards. I won't bother watching this show as there are much better options out there.

1100 clicks in 3+ hours isn't so impressive. Just by comparison, the story above this one has been posted a shorter amount of time and it has 6000+ clicks.

ABC could reach more people, and cheaper, by opening the window and shouting.

(not to mention that I'm sure someone in ABC's marketing dept just loooooves reading threads like this in which the majority of posters are expressing the opinions "show sucks / this method of advertising the show is sucky and intrusive / Fark sucks for allowing this kind of hamfisted marketing")
 
2013-09-24 05:29:24 PM
Sorry. I've boycotted ABC and my affiliate, except for the weekly "Shark Tank" addiction, for being incompetently run (BOTH the network and affiliate).

picturescrazy: Also, make Total Fark ad free. You can't possibly get $5 per person each month from the advertisers.


This was the big reason I stopped paying for TotalFark after four or five continuous years of it.  Once I started having to see ads, I no longer felt like I was getting any great benefit.

I'm glad I was born in the 80s. I was too young to remember any of it.

SPONSORED POSTS SUCK
 
2013-09-24 06:14:08 PM
We should come up with a name for these kinds of posts. I decided that everyone should call my FIL's mistress/girlfriend "Her" since we never could remember her name or kept getting it mixed up with former mistresses. We should do something similar.
