I’m not dead. I’m sure that disappoints a few people, but I’m like that. I just haven’t had anything worth posting about. But, hey, $.78 spent a few months ago solved that.
So, Religion:1 [where I waste the vast majority of my time] has been having some problems with spillover from Islam:2 lately.
Normally, this wouldn’t be a problem. Okay, well, it would. I should know — I was a part of the last spillover problem, and that shit still gets bitched about. But…this was a very special, weird e-domestic-dispute containing spillover.
And it turned into a strange revenge-botting. By which I mean ‘some idiot fills the room with similarly named sockpuppets to prevent others from getting into the room, in order to ‘shut it down”.
I’m jumping on a bandwagon here — hopefully early enough to get a good seat.
See that image over there? It’s a Ralph Lauren ad — obviously. One that…kinda got a bit of attention, because…well, look at it. It’s ‘shopped.
People noticed. And posted about it.
How did the company respond? By sending out DMCA takedown notices, because fair use doesn’t exist.
It’s going to work about as well as it worked for Scientology.
