MySpace Manners as Interpreted by a Little Kitten

Advice from Discouragement Kitten

DK RULESQuestion:
Dear Discouragement Kitten:

I have a MySpace etiquette question I would like to ask you. If your “friend” has a profile song that you really really like, is it rude to put the same song on your own profile? And if so, is there a statute of limitation, with when passing, said act would no longer be considered rude or “biting”?

Sincerely,

Manners confused

Answer:
Dear Manners confused:

What the fuck ever gave you the idea that I’d be a good source for proper fucking etiquette?  Is my blog titled Dear Fucking Manners Kitten?  No, it’s Schadenfreude – which loosely translated means enjoyment obtained from the troubles of others..  Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way – who the fuck cares?  Put the fucking ass cramming song on your profile – if your asstarded friend gives a cock – well then that’s a good indicator of what you’re dealing with.  Do you really want to deal with people that have worries like that float to the fucking top of their stink stack? 

While I’m ruminating on the issue – bad MySpace manners:

Unacceptable:

  • Reporting a profile to the MySpace Gestapo because your feelings are hurt – or because you weren’t sharp enough to butt rape them in type written confrontation..  Come on folks – lose with grace.  Move on, no one will remember in a week.
  • Creating malicious profiles that have no basis in fact because you’re not smart enough to outwit someone.  Why make yourself look more fucking stupid? (these are especially funny though when littered with poor spelling and at best questionable logic).

Acceptable:

  • Creating fake profiles reaming someone for being a pile of stinky vag gravy.  Some things are too good to pass up.  Just keep it between you and your friends.
  • Creating, maintaining or participating in blog groups to make fun of the morbidly obese, heinously slutty, fuckliciously retarded or anyone else that eye and/or mind rapes you by blasting their cocktardedness all over you – it’s probably in poor taste to search these out (although permissible because it’s funny) – it’s absolutely 100fucking% OK if they send you a friend request…

Get the Cock Over It:
I’ve seen a few bulletin complaints go by bitching about reposting content without crediting the original person that posted it.  Godcockingdammit – who cares?  Most the time the original post isn’t original content either.  It’s just something you found funny or enlightening – so someone has the same sense of humor or ideology you have – who cares.  Do you want credit for laughing at someone else’s work?  Who are these shitcock losers that police bulletins looking for uncredited reposts?  Unless the content you posted was spawned from your own noodle – get over it.  If you wrote it, made it or shit it – clearly state it in the bulletin and say that you’d like credit.

Love,
Discouragement Kitten

  2. Paul, MySpace has really taken off. I hear they have over 1000 unique users now.

  3. People hating on MySpace *cough*Paul Bayley*cough* obviously haven’t met the cool ass peeps I’ve met there, i.e., DK, Bagel, Soylent…

  4. MySpace is a great platform through which to network. It’s also completely frustrating, sometimes. I know I’ve met some totally kickass people there, though!

    @ Stepher: Thanks. RR wouldn’t be the same without you, either!

  5. Soy, MySpace is also a great platform through which to download ringtones, visit worm-infested cam whores, and learn about your neighbor’s candle fetish. That’s why I joined!

    Also, not that I’d call anyone out or anything, but Mr. “myspace.com/paulbaylay Last Updated: Sep 13, 2007″, you should really give this myspace thing a chance. Sign up, it’s free!

  8. For every 2 dozen teenyboppers, there’s a damn cool person on myspace. I’ve met quite a few awesome people there, and have also used it to keep in touch with awesome ppl I’ve met throughout my life. And Stiletto has some lovely photography on her profile ;b

  11. Hell, EVERY freaking llama is on MySpace. Who doesn’t have a MySpace page?

    I’ve used my page to meet like-minded peeps as well as keep tabs on which bands are coming to town and when. Oh, and the free concert tickets are a sweet bonus.

    The thing about MySpace is you never know what you’re going to get. You might pick-up a nasty virus if your system is not properly defended or you might score some White Stripes tickets. Hell, just the other day I received a sweet note from East Bay Ray in my email.

    The MySpace haters have been listening to too much network news IMHO.

  12. I’ll take the virus over White Stripes tickets. Unless I need to start a fire.

  18. I’m am one of these people who had a profile such as DK. A lot of the unique profiles have been deleted by the “gestapo”. some of us have switched over to regular profiles because recreating your profile and gaining back a fan base takes a lot of time and mental effort that some of us cannot provide. I myself had SHAKES which was a MJF parody profile that had a fairly large friends list. A lot of the people who really liked the things i did have added my personal page and I write regular blogs as a comic and they are well received. Much love to DK and R.I.P. Wheels, we all miss you.

  19. LB: I hate to be the heavy, but I really can’t blame MySpace. It’s in their TOS.
    I recommend you try a service that will give you more freedom.

    We use wordpress.com. They kick ass. We aren’t just “getting away with it” but they often put even our more subversive material right on their front page.

    It’s totally free (unless you want your own domain name, even then it’s a great bargain).

  20. I know what you mean on that, kids are on the site and they have to do what they have to do. (even though we all disable under 18 users from adding us)

    But thanks for the site suggestion, I’ll check it out and see what its about.
