I am sick of people telling us we publish click-bait
Holy smoke, hold your horses, he has, really arisen from the dead.
Having abandoned the master "Spamcaster Account" on Mybroadband, he has been hanging around behind the scenes, it would seem, and today he has decided he has had ENOUGH of all those, past and present, who make comments on MyBroadband's shitty news articles.
So guess what, outright censorship. Read the details here
What is funny though, is it took so long. But if you read in the article especially dear old Rudolph's comments you'll see they are fed-up with the DISQUS comments more than they are with those of us who "politely correct" their weak journalism
I'm angry today
So our good friend gets called out about his "garage sale".
So it appears to be all old wank, and he reveals where he lives, to be in that suburb of Detroit called Sandton
I'm having an open garage in Sandton this coming Saturday morning where a large number of vintage PC systems, motherboards, cards, drives, keyboards, etc. are up for grabs.
So as I do recall, he scored a bunch of stuff off the MyBB forum, and now he is giving it away like this. And rightly so he is called out on it:
And then he comes back with the following:
Firstly folks, this is a man who can afford to live in Sandton, so he earns at least 2 bar a year, probably more, so he has a bloody cheek to moan about the cost of moving. Yes, boss of the cartel with OOB shark and prepaid airtime theft, also offering food and booze? (not sure if he is serious or not but its all chump change for this high earner).
Now as to what toss, this cartel boss is "giving away", let's have a look see:
Whoops, no SSD or SATA drives there...
More ancient toss, and that'd be an Italian sportscar I detect (hmm does SARS know about that?)
An look, those are all the old "linux boxes" from Vodacon, now we know why OOB shark happens and calls are dropped
So much for the expense of having it moved.. you drove it yourself (probably too stingy to spend a cent with a removals company)
Mybroadband going strong....
I'm an asshole (he's an asshole, what an asshole)
Every time I hear that Denis Leary song, I cannot help but think of the one person I can honestly say fits the description- and its like my mind comes back to the same place every time. Yup, its THAT asshole. The one who believes he is LORD OF THE S.A. FURRIES (pun intended), Rakuen Growlithe!
Besides being in the butt-end of the gene pool (no surprises there) it's not enough to simply call this individual an asshole. We need to tell the sordid tale of what I even think amounts to the word "pervert" being too gentle an adjective.
So let's see what we have here:
Let's start at the beginning...
I encountered this individual when I started to contribute to a local furry forum (the infamous zafur.co.za). Bear in mind that, the forum requires moderator/admin approval of all new signups. I had waited over two weeks and nothing had happened. The way I got something to happen was by firing up mIRC, and see if I could find the site owner(s) on there and I did. I had to ask him directly "Please sir, can you approve my account"!
At the time, the place was already in a state of decline, with them running a very old version of forum software (phpBB V 2.x - remember that!). As anyone who has an existential hobby would attest, one feels motivated to want to help out there, you know the form- its a community after all. The response from this guy was straight "NO"!. I am like.. seriously dude.. what the fuck. If you wanna be like that.
So dear reader, by now you know what kind of person I am, I don't take kindly to fucktwats such as this one. In time I did learn what kind of fellow he was, and also I saw the history that was before my time.
Walk it off, Princess...
So my longtime nemesis is upset about something on my blog and
ohhhhh he has a frowny face now. As to what he is upset about, its
about this blog entry here.
Well Winston, here's a challenge for you- challenge each and every
point in that blog post with the truth and I'll publish that, instead of
what I wrote. And I want proof that what you said, is indeed true.
That's easy ain't it. But not so much if you've built a house of cards!
Jannie does it once again...
Its not easy to find a genius in South Africa, but, the former VodaCon and iBurps CEO is right on your street if you ever needed a genius. According to Jannie, milk no longer expires, as he clearly stated in this post (screencapped below for preservation as his friend will delete it from the forum as soon as this blog post is made known).
"Milk, petrol, etc. are all physical products and don't expire. Once you bought it, you take it home and consume it at your leasure.
So I wanted to alert another user on DISQUS about my blog. Guess what... our special crybaby friend has now blocked links to my blog....
First attempt was with a URL shortener.
Second attempt was a post, which I subsequently edited, and when I edited it... it got blocked.
BusinessTech, MyBroadband's own little fake news spew website spewed some fake bullshit click-bait today.
The response to this was quite heavy
Its a very strong response, and I am keeping it here because I am sure it will be sent to the fired furnaces below the Ministry of Truth!
It just never stops, Winston... The Ministry of Truth continues unabated...
Ban incoming for that user, pretty soon....
(oSo the local FAKE NEWS hub is hiring... and someone did point out their job advert:
As we know the business is run by a dutchman (our good friend Rudy), or more accurately nothing that became something through whichever means, probably not the ethical route as I've been told many times over the years. As I have myself worked for some of these "delightful" dutch people over the years, they rate only second to working for a boss of Middle-Eastern persuasion- they share the common trait of being bastard slave drivers - they honestly believe they are better than the people that work for them and love the sweatshop. Of course, that never did sit well with me, and hence the reason why I tend to get emotional about these issues. Anyway, from the advert:
You really must want to work hard. If you are looking for a "work-life balance" or just an 8-to-5 position, please don't apply. There is huge opportunity for growth here, but you will have to earn it.
In the post on the forum, it takes you to the link where you do the actual application. I honestly don't know whether to laugh or cry at this, as it is blatantly obvious that MyBroadband wants to pwn its employees. How disgusting!
This ad wasn't missed either by the readers on the forum, they actually called them out on it. Of course, no response. Boss of sweatshop doesn't care..
