WTF Wednesday – Weird News Wednesday

News regarding Mittens and Co.

1. For counties, the greater the dependence on federal aid, the greater the support for Republican candidates.

2.  “His eyes are just so blue. It’s like looking into a Smurf’s anus.” – Jon Stewart.

The Daily Show 8/13: http://on.cc.com/NgSZDk

3. Mitt Romney campaign rep freaks the fuck out on CNN when questioned about differences between Romney’s and Ryan’s Medicare plans. Tim Pawlenty responds by suggesting the anchor doesn’t speak English.

4.


5.  Reddit: “My name is Rob Zerban. I am the Democratic Congressional challenger to Rep. Paul Ryan in Wisconsin’s 1st District.”

“Don’t tell me what you value, show me your budget, and I’ll tell you what you value.” -Joe Biden, 2008

“Maybe he should say it again.” -Reddit, 2012

“Paul Ryan Shirtless.”  Gross Internet.

Bee tee dubs, I just moved a lot of shit across state borders, so I’m going to reserve the right to be lazy this week about posting.

Also I put up ads, so don’t worry, you don’t have spyware, probably. They’re pretty unintrusive and I can take them down at anytime. Selling out feels pretty good.

Here’s my full review + heckler story + info on his recent reddit drama.

Remember, I get paid for this (unlike all my other projects), so remember to hit the “like” the button on the Suite101 page:

MC Chris The Monster Hunter Tour 2012 at The Knitting Factory

In a middle of the act, a young woman in a Batgirl T-shirt threw a plastic cup in the air close to the stage. An empty cup had been tossed onstage earlier, but this one had liquid which reflected blue in the stage lights as it burst through the air.

“You don’t throw a cup at digital Woody Guthrie!” the performer exclaimed.

The crowd was torn with boos for the woman and cheers for mc chris. He instructed the audience to clear a path so the woman had an exit route for the door. The woman instead climbed up onto the stage and appeared to ask for the artist for a hug, but he brandished a portable stage fan defensively to “blow away the stench.”

Pretty much anyone who likes to watch things on the Internet is talking about the “Stop Online Piracy Act” and http://americancensorship.org/ – the official site against the proposed bill.

I don’t want to rehash all the reasons why this $91 million lobbyist lovechild bill is a vague, terrible piece of crap that unreasonably expands the power of copyright holders and violates due process. The Center for Democracy and Technology is doing a great job of rounding up bloggers who list those reasons already.

I wanted to point out the awesome investigative journalism work by a group of ordinary Redditors.

These guys and/or gals went through every single one bill’s sponsors’ websites and youtube accounts and found them violating the very copyright laws they’re trying to expand. All but 4 out of the 25 Representatives had infringing videos.

The list of these Reps is the number one upvoted comment on Reddit’s official anti-SOPA thread:  http://www.reddit.com/r/announcements/comments/me5e9/american_censorship_day_stand_up_for/c3071a3

You go, citizens of the Internet, you go.

So I linked to my own blog, different articles, on Reddit twice.  There is no rule explicitly against this practice. But I was banned anyway.

The rule clearly states:

Feel free to post links to your own content (within reason). If that’s all you ever post, and it always seems to get voted down instantly, take a good hard look in the mirror — you just might be a spammer.”

Within reason.  They really need to create a specific quantitative guideline (1 self-promotion per week) otherwise its just arbitrary who they or the “report” button says they can ban.  My account is relatively new.  I don’t link to a lot of other stuff because, most popular links are already up, and they don’t do duplicate links.  The few comments I  have posted have been well thought-out and insightful.

I’m not the only person to complain about this issue in particular and being “silently banned” by IP address:

How I Got Banned From Reddit

Silently banned from Reddit…

FormerRedditUser

This happens all the time with Reddit. Rather than outright ban users, they mute them without any indication. The muting is done by IP address, but the ability to see your own comments is done by user name. Ostensibly this is to fight spam (like a honeypot), but there are indications that it can be invoked automatically with the report button — apparently the oversight on report is intermittent, and the user is frequently just muted until an admin looks into it. An associate of mine pointed otut that this has the convenient side effect of maintaining the user’s ad impressions without allowing them a voice.

If you have a reddit account that you don’t care about getting IP banned on (like a work computer), reddit this shit, and the other links I posted to.

I’m sticking to StumbleUpon from now on.
