Dear MySpace Users

Dear MySpace Users

Please, please stop hotlinking images. It’s obnoxious. More than that, I really don’t want to be associated in any way, shape, or form to your stupid page with pictures of you pouting in front of a mirror with a digital camera. I don’t want to hear “Don’t you wish your girlfriend was hot like me” pounding out of my laptop speakers as all your stupid little friends are all, like, “I luv u 4ever!!!!!” and “OMG, you are soooooooooooooo hotttttttttt!!!!!!!”

And believe me when I say that the world does not need to be exposed to your whale tail.

You have singlehandedly set the women’s movement back about 4 million years. I never once thought I would ever say this, but you know what? You are asking for it. Seriously.

You’re embarrassed by your parents? That’s nothing compared to what you’re going to face. In 15 years, your children–who will be parents themselves if they follow your example–are going to be so appalled at what you’ve allowed everyone to see that they’ll become born agains just to rebel.

Yeah, yeah, I know. If MySpace were a country it would be the 11th largest in the world. Unfortunately, Bush wouldn’t be able to go in swinging his WMD argument because he’d know that it was too stupid a nation to have WMDs. Though come to think of it, he probably has a page there. But that’s a digression from my main point, which is, quite simply this: You are scary, scary people. Now stop stealing my bandwidth.

  1. Yeah, I could do something to my htaccess files, but I like hotlinking my own images … can I do that?

  2. Theoretically, yes, although it depends on where you’re hotlinking to or from. If you’re hotlinking to your own images for your MySpace page, well…that’s going to make it difficult.

  3. Oh, you caught me. That was actually my own page I was linking from…. So that’s cool … basically I can just google and find a command for my htaccess file to stop people from myspace? YAY! And one of these days I might actually do it …. although it’s more fun to complain.

  4. Yup, complaining is always more fun. Particularly when it’s about “whale tails.” God help us. I just try and stay away from MySpace. Because I am a proud member of Generation X and am too lazy to try and keep up with the Millennials. Yay!
