Is that for real?
 
2007-08-17 1:45:30 PM  
Satire?
 
2007-08-17 1:46:52 PM  
I don't think anyone working for fark is dumb enough to download a trojan attachment from an email. This has failed attempt at satire written all over it.

... out the little turd

Hubba-wha?
 
2007-08-17 1:47:33 PM  
Heh, he had 4 alts. Surprising?
 
2007-08-17 1:47:36 PM  
Fark.com, a thoroughly juvenile, and entertaining, social news site where users pick the headlines.

Well they have us pegged.

klymen: Satire?

If you are being generous to the "author" .. yeah.
 
2007-08-17 1:48:14 PM  
no farking way

I thought the same thing. :-D
 
2007-08-17 1:49:40 PM  
This article (and the previous one it mentions) both state how the users and Fox News go hand in hand... I guess it makes sense if the Farkers are leading the Fox Newsies into a chopper blade or something....
 
2007-08-17 1:50:22 PM  
I admit it - it was me. I was interested in all the TFettes personal info...hur hur.

FTFA: "Drew Curtis. Curtis, far left,"

I knew it!
 
2007-08-17 1:51:05 PM  
Haha... that's funny. If this is a real story, I hope Drew nails him to the wall. :D

Gwendolyn: Well they have us pegged.

I know its thoroughly juvenile, but entertaining, that "pegged" makes me giggle.

Weird.

Valleywag isn't a satire site as far as I can tell...

FARK NEWSCORP AND THE A55 PIRATE MURDOCH!
 
2007-08-17 1:55:37 PM  
The guy probably just wanted a date with me.
 
2007-08-17 1:57:11 PM  
You'd think they'd get a more current picture of Drew, where he didn't look like he was 12.

Koggie: FTFA: "Drew Curtis. Curtis, far left,"

Gotta admit, that thought had me laughing at the article.
 
2007-08-17 1:57:55 PM  
Get em Drew, Kick his ass!
Tell us what his TotalFark login is so we can all deliver an internet cockpunch to this shweenbag.

DON'T FARK WITH FARK!

I heard Drew is selling the site to Murdoch for $1.3billion so he can retire to a small sheep far in the mountains of Nepal.

/not

All I have are these Nepalese coins. I don't even know why I bought the place.

I saw Drew just a couple of months ago. He still looks 12.

With a receding hairline ;)

Gwendolyn: Well they have us pegged.

Guilty as charged...
 
2007-08-17 2:01:34 PM  
Methinks someone is playing a prank.
 
2007-08-17 2:01:49 PM  
Curtis says he's "99 percent sure" it's Phillips -- and is now attempting to pursue legal action, seeking detailed data from Comcast, to remove his doubts.

And thus, it's unlikely Mr. Curtis will be commenting in this thread.
 
2007-08-17 2:04:34 PM  
Other than to find out user's meat world identities, why would anyone want to hack Fark servers? TF is only $5/month, damn.
 
2007-08-17 2:04:41 PM  
SpinStopper: I saw Drew just a couple of months ago. He still looks 12.

Yeah, saw him not long ago myself. That guy really gets around ;)
 
2007-08-17 2:05:08 PM  
FAKE

peck: And thus, it's unlikely Mr. Curtis will be commenting in this thread.

Fine. We don't want details..just satire or not satire?

netweavr: Methinks someone is playing a prank.

Yeah...the real world is not full of such perfect amounts of win and fail as this is.
 
2007-08-17 2:05:56 PM  
Fark isn't going to be bought out by NewsCorp, that would pretty much defeat the whole purpose of Fark.

/fake
 
2007-08-17 2:06:19 PM  
Just don't sell Fark!

Memphis Fox station launches blog aggregator
Posted July 30, 2007

WHBQ-TV in Memphis has debuted OnMemphis, a city blog aggregator. Web manager Darrell Phillips said the site launched three weeks ago and "it's doing well already and we haven't even begun to market it." Screen grab...

weird.
 
2007-08-17 2:07:30 PM  
To be fair, Drew was awfully mean to the guy for submitting Phil Spector newsflashes.

/or was that someone else?
 
2007-08-17 2:08:19 PM  
why would that be fake?

that was rather interesting, reading you dopes comments made me hesitate at first.
 
2007-08-17 2:09:02 PM  
Kitwilly: that was rather interesting, reading you dopes comments made me hesitate at first.

You answered your own question here bub.

Kitwilly: why would that be fake?

He was probably just trying to figure out how many alts you really have.
 
2007-08-17 2:09:27 PM  
Kitwilly: why would that be fake?

'cuz you're IN THE farkING THREAD?!?!?!?!
 
2007-08-17 2:10:02 PM  
That episode, in turn, got some News Corp. executives interested in Fark, for whom the site might be a logical acquisition.

Seems like the next logical acquisition after the WSJ.
 
2007-08-17 2:12:42 PM  
Kitwilly: why would that be fake?

It sounds perfectly plausible.

He wouldn't be the only one using alt accounts.

electricbuttplug: He wouldn't be the only one using alt accounts.

You're probably right: Account created: 2007-07-18 22:15:20

STFU.

Dancin_In_Anson: Gwendolyn: Well they have us pegged.

Guilty as charged...


Wouldn't it have to be the other way around?
 
2007-08-17 2:24:18 PM  
Why is it that this thing has not been redlit yet?
 
2007-08-17 2:24:31 PM  
Green? Hmm, maybe true then.
 
2007-08-17 2:25:26 PM  
Oh, It's on now.
 
2007-08-17 2:26:08 PM  
A look at either would be helpful to someone designing a social-news website.

Buuuullshiat!
