I don't know why, but I wish I understood what the hell this was all about.

Numero Uno?

now he knows how those poor record companies feel when their artist's music is ripped off and traded on the web! feels cruddy don't it?
2002-02-07 07:31:41 AM  
er.... great!

2002-02-07 07:35:22 AM  
i dont think he'll be bothering with the fark tags..
2002-02-07 07:38:26 AM  
Score one for practical purposes of the internet!

now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to hit my head against a wall until I pass out.
2002-02-07 07:43:43 AM  
Manic, the internet detective!

Good job.....
2002-02-07 07:45:54 AM  
Wow, I didn't think Google used META tags for its searches. What a doofus I am.
2002-02-07 07:46:17 AM  
Good prose.
Screenshots not only of exellent quality but capable of grabbing the readers interest in the issues at hand.
Astute and witty observations about metatags in general and how he was wronged; and finally, obvious and overwhelming evidence this guy needs a blowjob. Badly.
2002-02-07 07:46:39 AM  
He didn't NOTICE his titles were - arrgh, I give up. ::slams head on desk multiple times::
2002-02-07 07:51:48 AM  
Where does it say he was homeschooled?
Not that that would be surprising...
2002-02-07 07:54:07 AM  
Well, it amused me. Screw _you_ guys. I'm going home.
2002-02-07 08:02:06 AM  
I've seen these META tag crooks before. We should throw the book at them. Every last one. Throw 'em in the hoosegow and toss away the key. Track them down and eat their livers, I say. Dammit it takes time to come up with meaningful META tags. I've written a few myself. I had to think about them for a long time. Maybe because I'm dull of wit, but that's beside the point. You unsympathetic bastards try writing a few META tags yourself, then you'll see what he's talking about.

(I could use a good blowjob myself!)

Don't hate on homeschoolers...I was one from preschool through 8th grade and now I'm a freshman at the Rochester Institute of Technology...although I'm not sure if thats good or bad. Homeschooling isn't all bad like the liberal media would have you believe.
2002-02-07 08:15:36 AM  
I wonder how much traffic the thief's web server can handle....hmmmm
2002-02-07 08:17:41 AM  
as buffy said, "it's not just for crazy religious people any more"

I think Manic has good standings to kick the twirp around - not that i care about copyrights and stuff. Copyrights just give me the right to copy stuff ;) ... but anyhoo...

2002-02-07 08:30:13 AM  
I thought meta-tag copyrights dont allow you to use registered names, like coke or amazon, I've heard about a couple of webmasters who got in trouble by using a big corp's name. I think Manic is a bit too anal and should relax.
2002-02-07 08:44:18 AM  
I don't understand why it's a problem to steal someone's Mensa tags. Would they be less smart?
2002-02-07 08:52:59 AM  
No, you did not read the above wrong, it is not a typo and I'm not crazy. It happened. God help us all it happened and I still don't know why.

It happened on Alice. Boss Hogg and Deputy Enos showed up at Mel's Diner, the setting for Alice, and tried for some damn reason to try and buy Mel's Diner! Again, I am not suffering from heat stroke or dementia. Enos was not in favor of Boss Hogg's plan but being a bit of a chicken and just an employee...

Well in the end Boss Hogg of course didn't get the diner AND ended up with his car filled with cement.

I truly thought I had imagined this but have recently seen the episode pop up on cable so I know I am not crazy. Really!
2002-02-07 09:00:02 AM  
I would steal someones Mentos tags. They're the Freshmaker!
2002-02-07 09:02:42 AM  
Be sure to check the guestbook. I see the Fark Forces have been busy... and many of them are in need of antibiotics for that little problem with number one...
2002-02-07 09:09:21 AM  
As soon as P-diddly has to sell one of his Bentleys to make ends meet, I will stop downloading music. Or until they stop playing them for free on the radio.

Or when I get my $20 back for that crap-ass Gorillaz CD I bought...talk about piracy!
2002-02-07 09:11:33 AM  
It's always exciting to watch when Internet nerds fight.
2002-02-07 09:24:48 AM  
Whats a meta tag?
2002-02-07 09:26:50 AM  
Good for Manic...

Though he should remember the old proverb:

Arguing on the internet is like competing in the Special Olympics; even if you win you're still retarded.

And just to avoid undue wrath, no I don't know who originally wrote it, and I'm probably paraphrasing.
2002-02-07 09:40:00 AM  
1) Why the farg would you want to skank someone else's Meta tags, are you just that lazy or what?? I'm very serious could someone explain it to me, cuz I think I am missing something.

2) What the fark is people's problem with homeschooling??? And where did it say anything about him being homeschooled anyway, I know some cockhead didn't just feel that was a way to emphasis is stupidity, because that would be ignorant, close-minded, and just plain demeaning.

No, it is not just for religious fanatics. Yes, they do make up a large portion of it, but come on people, just because some asshole makes a stupid comment doesn't mean I think everyone who is publicly educated is retarded. Hell, tell me how many of you had indepth discussions on the likelyhood that God was merely early humans form of policing the masses during history class. Now tell me how many of you also had that discussion with your parents and siblings.

I do not believe that everyone should be homechooled, I believe that public education is where most people belong, alot of parent's just aren't capable of accepting the huge responsibility of being their child's primary educator. However, I think it has been proven on several occasions that the average homeschooler is any more ignorant than the average public schooler.

i own Manic.
2002-02-07 09:59:39 AM  
LOL - just seen the guestbook. Thank you all for the support.

(B0rg9 - duh - Google just makes him easier to track down, because he steals the Page Titles as well. It was also the easiest way to 'show and tell' without cutting and pasting the stolen META tags and leaving myself open for a pot/black accusation.)

(Homeschooling - I don't know for sure, but he just seems the type, y'know?)
2002-02-07 10:01:17 AM  
Oh, and it is true. Bug owns my sorry ass.
2002-02-07 10:01:25 AM  
God, I have stolen a whole bunch of etc etc.. and including tags. But the one thing I have always made sure of, was to changed the everything that had copyrighted information about the site that I took it from.
2002-02-07 10:01:48 AM  
Manic What type would that be????? (p.s. I'm really not a biatch, I promise, ask roXet, just very passionate about what I believe.)
2002-02-07 10:02:03 AM  
it's just metatags ffs, how anal can you be
2002-02-07 10:02:25 AM  
oppps.. I guess I cant dow a it deletes them. oh well.. as per say.
I have stolen lots of html, javascript and meta tags.
2002-02-07 10:06:28 AM  
Who cares? Where are the photoshops?????????????????

Galadriel: The headline says 'homeschooled halfwit', not 'typical homeschooler', m'kay?
2002-02-07 10:12:14 AM  
Jesus, they're *meta tags*, who the fark cares.
2002-02-07 10:13:09 AM  
In fact, I think I might go and steal them myself out of spite. Yes, spite it is!
2002-02-07 10:18:52 AM  
It would be Ok to quote META tags if you criticised or parodied them.


Why isn't this page in American?
2002-02-07 10:19:15 AM  
m'kay. Sorry if I came on kinda strong, I'm drinking coffee. It's just that sometimes I think people would be a little more open-minded and accepting about me having 666-shaped birthmark on my forehead than they are of me having been homechooled.
2002-02-07 10:19:20 AM  
careful checking out the guy's guestbook... looks like somebody hit it.
2002-02-07 10:22:17 AM  
The matcalfox guestbook is now definitely NSFW
2002-02-07 10:22:47 AM  
2002-02-07 10:24:32 AM  
Goatsex guy in the guestbook... the ultimate indignity.
2002-02-07 10:28:41 AM  

Hmm-homeschooled perhaps?

by the way, I have had the most unfortunate luck to have to deal with homeschooled students that have gone on to college. Almost always well behind in social skills and the sciences (I teach college science classes part time). I rarely see a homeschooled kid make it through a class.

Not dumb kids, simply not properly educated.
2002-02-07 10:31:45 AM  
2002-02-07 10:31:52 AM  
uhhh.. I dont get this!! Can someone explain?
2002-02-07 10:32:56 AM  
If he is homeschooled, just more examples to prove my theory that the homeschooled are generally socially malajusted uber-dorks as detached from social reality as they are from other schoolkids.

Galadriel, I'm sure there are some people who get through it alright ;)

I remember a homeschooled kid that emerged from his parent-bunker to join a musical at my college. While he was very smart and sang very well, he was a superfreak who immediately caught pneumonia upon encountering all those germs he'd been sheltered from all those years. He dropped out of the show. I can just see his mom feeding him soup saying "I KNEW I shouldn't have let you out into that bad bad world." He was like 17.

Galadriel: The headline says 'homeschooled halfwit', not 'typical homeschooler', m'kay?

And apparently your conclusion that the halfwit is homeschooled is reached solely on the basis of the misspellings, errors, and perhaps the act itself. Which makes it a blanket indictment of all homeschoolers. Replace 'homsschooled' with 'jewish' or 'black' and see if you think it looks like it's about a specific individual instead of a group.
