The self appointed forum police told me to start my own thread if i hate MySpace - so i wrote a poem ;)

I hate MySpace and it's social cliques,
It's lists of "whoes cool" all appear to be dicks.
I hate the way it pops up songs.
And how emo kids whine on and on.
The designs that are used look like scat
Like anyone can read your whining on a background like that!
It's always trying to hook me up,
with 14 y/o losers who IM me: "WAZZUP!!??!~#%^#"
It signs me out when i try to search.
It's like some preteen social anxiety church.
I hate the way it spams me crap,
about stupid bands i'd like to slap
I hate it's shoddy interface.
Oh dear God how i hate MySpace.

OMG - She's... she's the Anti-MySpace!

Super poem, Elli. :)

To me, most of it looked like they took anything you could put in a web page, threw it in a blender and set it to "Puree"

MySpace is ugly, I much prefer LiveJournal,
with an interface like MS, who needs a urinal?
Yes Emo teens wine, bitch and say "I hate life!
angsty and lame, full of anger and strife.

"I updated again, nothing special" it says,
the same entries repeated over days and days.
"I've got stuff to say, I'm one of a kind!"
inundating us with every thought on their mind.

My last thoughts on MySpace, likely as not:
"everyone's got one, I need one" is not original thought.

I refuse to get involved in MySpace, to even go to the site. Facebook is bad enough... :P

oh no the Beast is spreading into other forums!!

Q. How do I delete my account?



A. If you wish to permanently terminate your MySpace account, start by clicking "Home" in the top navigation menu from any MySpace web page. From your personal home page, click the "Account Settings" next to your default picture. From your "Change Account Settings" page, click the "Cancel Account" link, found just above the "My Account Settings". On the "Cancel My Account" page, click the "Cancel My Account" button. Check the email account that you used to create your account. Follow the instructions in that email to delete your account. Keep in mind, cancelling your MySpace account will PERMANENTLY REMOVE all of your profile information from MySpace, including your photographs, comments, blogs, and your personal network of friends. This information cannot be restored. You may re-register with your current email address after canceling, but you will need to rebuild your personal network from scratch.

How is that different from LJ?
12/19/2005 03:43:46 PM · #15
Much of it isn't. I haven't seen a unique MySpace yet though - can you customize the layout? Cuz not so many do. It just looks like the next one. At least in Xanga you can have skins and in LJ you can set the style you want. :) I dunno - MySpace looks like a junk drawer.
12/19/2005 03:48:09 PM · #16
I don't really consider myspace and livejournal to be the same thing so I wouldn't compare them especially. But they've both got plenty of whining, bitchy, angsty, lame, "I'm so special" material, for sure.

hehe, nice poem Elli :-)
My son had a myspace setup for his band, it worked for me to keep up on his gigs and stuff going on with the band. I went once a little while back and actually tried to start a page and all that, and yeah, it was a pain, and I kept crashing and I think I actually set it up, but I've never been back!

2 sign ins 5 are you sures later and it told me i had to wait 48 hrs before my account can be cancelled.
shew they dont like to let a gal go do they?
12/19/2005 04:08:22 PM · #22
I admit, that I'd love to see the site suceed. But they need some major re-structuring and a lot less hassle.

I actually revisited and well it seems like it's improved very slightly but still relatively annoying as all get up.
12/19/2005 04:12:00 PM · #23
what kind of sites are they??

12/19/2005 04:12:46 PM · #24
journaling, photo blogging, and basically a "spot" to put your stuff, thoughts, etc.

In addition to what mavrik said they are, for me at least, the biggest source of annoying hot linkers on the entire internet and a site on the whole I wish would be shut down immediately.
