be sure to by my new book "How to recognize and control Web-rage" for 29.95 and my other book "How to recognize and control your children's webrage" for 39.95(because kids are that important).

of course, we all know THAT THESE RAGES-OF-THE-WEEK ARE COMPLETE BULLshiat. but buy my books anyway.

i dunno what it is but i want it
2002-02-25 10:51:07 AM  
More "we're all victims" whiney shiat. What's wrong with this country? Soon this will lead to litigation.

If you get frustrated, do something else...even the article says this. This is a non-issue.

Isn't the UK working on legislature to ban this?

Cosmiverse making up news stories. OMNI magazine sues for copyright infringement. Batboy to join closing ceremonies in Olympics.

If I see one more political thread with Fb and Harmonia, I swear I'm gonna lose it and do something crazy!

Web rage is contagious; this article is spreading it
2002-02-25 10:57:02 AM  
Perhaps it should be required that oralse.cx(SFW) be the start page for the entire Intarweb.

Who could possibly feel enraged after seeing this?

A day in the life at the 'Stress Doctor' school of management:

"Uh, Boss? See, I am getting really tired of all the pop-up adds on the booby sites I visit. I am feeling 'web-rage.'"

"I respect your frustration. You are a victim. Go pound your desk, Johnson, or punch the guy next to you."

"Yes, sir."

2002-02-25 11:00:19 AM  
Well, I hope you are all happy now. Look what you have done to the Internet. I need to qualm my frustrations by getting into my double parked Ford Excursion, hitting the freeway, and going "Bug Hunting".
2002-02-25 11:00:42 AM  
I am haveing severe web-rage because that page is veeeeerrry sloooooow
2002-02-25 11:00:44 AM  
What I hate is when people do web pages where the print is so small, it makes my head hurt! Especially when they are a web-page that is linked from Fark and they look like they have something interesting to say... unlike this post.
2002-02-25 11:00:58 AM  
This should be labeled Obvious.
2002-02-25 11:01:50 AM  
Well...some of us are stuck in the 56k doldrums. Rage is the correct word.

I miss you, DSL! I miss you, cable modem!

Mostly rage against sites like NFL.com or NBA.com that load their pages with so much crap, they load incompletely or full of broken pictures.

Rage against Geocities sites for celebrities that have nothing but blurry video-caps for pictures.

Rage aginst the dropoff of frequency of interesting topics and humor on XE-Entertainment.

Rage against Cliff Yablonski because he never updates his site.

Rage against MBTA.com in Boston because their webpage is completely useless.

"When the Internet is outlawed, only Outlaws will use the Internet"

"The Web doesn't stab people with a No.2 Pencil, People stab people with a No.2 Pencil"

"Blame Jeb for the Rebs that have rage from the Web"
-the Rev. Jesse Jackson?

"These d--- psychos!! One computer show, that's all it takes! and Bam!!"

Zardoz: I'm sorry man....why are you stuck with 56k? It sounds like you had Cable and/or DSL at one point; what happened?

I guess if I was a writter and I didn't have anything to write about for my coloumn I'd write the same story.

Ouroborus I already did that. Do I have to do it again?
2002-02-25 11:14:25 AM  
I'm reminded of John Cusack from 'Bullets over Broadway" throwing open his window and screaming, "I'm a whore!"

Only I'm not a whore.

And like, online.

Perhaps not.

Man, the porn downloading was so slow yesterday, I beat the living crap out of my roomate. But today I took a little walk around the dorms, took some deep breaths, and when I came back, I had a whole giant page of high quality porno sitting there for me. My roomate was very relieved.

Seriously, if you hit the person next to you because the web is downloading too slowly, I think you may have a problem.
2002-02-25 11:16:26 AM  
I swear people, If some of you were given a gold bar you'd biatch that it wasn't bright enough! Let's all take a deep breath and think about how technology has progressed in only the last decade.

Yes, I am stuck on dial up (5.9K/sec) and I "expect" things to be slow. I on the other hand have made friends with people all over the world, communicate with relatives, transfer video and photos, etc....

It is getting faster and better everyday but it will never be good enough for many of you huh?

Just my 2cents.......

Web rage??? You gotta be kidding. How soon 'til someone comes to my house and shoots me for saying somethi................................

Is it just me or does the average smart user only get web rage when looking for app cracks with all those farking pop-up XXX pages. Now that is irritating. But just normal web use, if some one gets irritated at that, then they need to just repack up thier computer and send it the hell back from where it came.
2002-02-25 11:24:49 AM  
can i be a hero for not hitting the guy next to me when my porn downloads too slowly?
2002-02-25 11:25:10 AM
