So I’ve said this before, though never here so I thought that it would be a good rant since I haven’t had one in a while.
Anyways, MySpace has been around for some time now, and it still boggles my mind to think that people actually like and use it! I mean, almost once a week now, I hear a story of someone getting their computer infected with a virus, that the got from MySpace! And if that weren’t enough of a reason to stop using MySpace, it also turns out that it’s home to a rather larger number of “online predators” and the like.
I realize that MySpace has been seen as a way to stay “connected” with friends, but seriously now, there are many many MUCH better ways of of doing this. I just can’t possible comprehend what people see in MySpace. Not only are the above point true, but SOOO many people just go so overboard on their profiles, that even on my high-speed internet connection, hell even the “super connection” that we have at work, I have seen profile pages that take over a MINUTE to load. You have to be freaking insane to actually want to sit there and WAIT for it!!!!
Then there is all the crap music, videos, and stupid flashing gif images that people embed into the pages, and post in each others comments. The single most annoying thing about ANY web site, is having a poor-quality, outrageously stupid, FAR to loud song that plays BY ITSELF when you visit the page. So there I am, surfing the net and listening to music off my computer, all the sudden I hit this page that starts BLASTING music, I don’t care what the hell the site is, I don’t ever stay there any long than it takes for me to close the tab.
But back to MySpace, and the flashing gif images that EVERYONE on there uses. I mean, what in the hell is up with those?! Do people really think that it’s cool to post them all over the place? “Hey look, I can post this shiny shit all over this place then suddenly I will be cool!” I swear…..it’s just, well I don’t think there is even I word that I can think of to describe how stupid it is.
So remember kids, there is no faster way to look like a moron, that to create a MySpace page that will cause others to grow old and die while they wait for it to load!
