Internet Challenge #4

Hi, another Internet Challenge for my readers!

This one has more of an immature, name-calling flavor.

Please provide an example of someone saying something intended to antagonize you.

It can be a comment on your own blog.
It can be a response to a comment of yours on another site.
It can be an attack in a Usenet flamewar from the mid-90's.

It does have to have originated somewhere online. Also, the insult must have occurred prior to this post. I don't want the insult to be from an email -- an interested party must be able to access the offending remark themselves.

If you provide me an example, please know that I will include a screenshot or the text of the remark, so if it's too hurtful to you, don't share it with me.

As with the previous challenge, the first person who submits an appropriate entry gets 2 IC points. You have the potential to get an additional IC point if you can point me to where someone called you Hitler, a Nazi or a fascist.

GET GOING, Internet People!


Lulu provided the first entry, but the link she included does not seem to work. Lulu, could you please point me to the proper link so I can verify the insult to your person within a broader web-based context.

I didn't understand the YouTube link provided by Russ, so I unfortunately cannot award an IC point to him without some further explanation of the insult.

The Imaginary Reviewer is so far the only person I have deemed worthy of an IC point for this Challenge, with a nice jab at his alleged musical tastes by a commenter here.

"Sweet idea for a blog. But then I read your favourite band is Hootie and the Blowfish so your opinions are worthless."

I am awaiting details from Lulu regarding her received insult. If it qualifies, she will get 2 IC points.

The tally thus far:

Some Guy: 2 IC points
Jin, The Imaginary Reviewer, Flannery Alden: 1 IC point

comments section...there are 68 comments, so here's the relevant bit.

"I didn't realize that you received some sort of special training when you started popping out the brats, dirty. I thought it was just a case of you forgetting to "keep your legs closed" as you so eloquently phrase it on your blog. If you are indeed trained in Early Childhood Education, my mistake, sorry."

Me, intentionally trying to get the rise out of another commenter on the subject of television and children.

Okay, the first one that came to my mind is a comment in one of my favourite imaginary reviews:

See the comment from 'tracey': "Sweet idea for a blog. But then I read your favourite band is Hootie and the Blowfish so your opinions are worthless."

I love this comment. She has so totally misunderstood my profile page it still makes me laugh.

I like this contest. I know I have something. It's just a matter of finding it.

Damn Damn Damn!
I delete all the super nasty comments I receive. They usually get pissed & send TONS more. That's where comment moderation enters the picture. Nothing pisses rude peeps off more than not being heard at all.
That said... I'm not gonna get a point this time around am I?!

How about I just insult you instead?

lulu said... is the link...

Scroll through the comments until you find the one from me directed to a lovely girl who called herself "dirty".
