MKM Open Thread (Mar. 26, 2012)

Welcome to your MKM Blog open thread for March 26, 2012, the day you discovered that I guess you wouldn't always root against the paparazzi

Hola, and a very happy Monday to all of you.  Here's hoping we have another great week with lots of funny comments, guest visits from various stars of popular culture, and no anonymous bitching about bad comments, bad commenters, or bad blogs with comments about comments.

Here's a Youtube clip to get you started.


58 comments:

  1. And even though we ain't got money,
    I'm so in love with you, honey,
    And everything will bring a chain of love.
    And in the morning, when I rise,
    You bring a tear of joy to my eyes
    And tell me everything is gonna be alright.

    3. Worst Hack was talking shit to the impostor Kenny, who couldn't even spell the name right. Even Worst Hack was offended by that travesty.

      Nobody fucks with the B-A-L-O-G-G-I-N-S. How dare this hack even try.

    2. That link took me to all the comments, and I don't even see econdave on there. I don't understand.

    3. I also don't understand why apostrophes get read as HTML in names here.

  3. These comments are pretty funny. I'm starting to think that if A.J. asked people to update their email addresses associated with their accounts so that he could send them each $100 in PayPal, half of the Gawker commenters would tell him to go to hell.

    1. Fuck... I got 4 starred, 4 unstarred and 1 banned account. Am I supposed to make face FB accounts for all of them?

      AJ is sending us $100? Ugh, just ugh. That's going to double my income for the year and totally screw up my tax return. I feel like AJ is trying to rape my PayPal account!

      This. I have threatened to leave at least seven times before, but now I am seriously, officially done with Gawker and I will never post again*! Good luck getting any pageviews without your most brilliant and entertaining commenters!

      *until tomorrow

      @Average Gawker Commenter & Another Gawker Commenter

      Hearted! I completely agree with everything you both said, and although I have absolutely nothing new or interesting to add to the discussion, I wanted to participate anyway and let you know that I agree with you in a substantive and intelligent fashion rather than just posting an idiotic +1 like the mouth-breathing jock imbeciles.

    2. That whole "Uwe's Basement" meme is more played out than making fun of Phin losing and getting a star, amirite?

      Delete
  5. What's this I hear about everybody losing their stars with the multi-faceted commenting system overhaul.

    1. Nick Denton made a reference to the "gamification" of commenters being a big mistake. Ironically, he appears to want to replace featured commenters with deputies of sorts, who start their own threads and moderate them for free. How this will be different from the pink/gray/starred dynamics is anyone's guess, but I see no reason to believe anything about our current comment system will make the cut: threads, promotions, stars, +1s, even jokes.

      Delete
    2. So why isn't everyone becoming hysterical over this? Surely it demands more discussion than the Hunger Games to whoever the hell this Phintastic individual is.

      Delete
    3. Everyone at Gawker did, for a while. But that was weeks ago and it still hasn't happened yet. I think a lot of Deadspin folks aren't aware of it, but most everyone realizes there's nothing you can do, so you just gotta wait and see.

      Delete
    4. I'm expecting that it will be like all the other times the system's been overhauled. It'll be different, and weird, and even a little bit scary, and then we'll all get used to it, adapt a little bit if necessary, and it'll still be the same group of people, making the same jokes. If +1s ever do disappear they'll be replaced with some equivalent system.

      I just don't think they're ever going to actively punish people trying to be funny. And I think that's the only way it turns into a discussion forum.

      Delete
    5. I agree with SV8. It will look different, but DS has always been about being funny. The comment of the fortnight post made it clear that serious conversation will be welcome, but that's just not our culture, and I don't expect they'll force that on us.

      If I'm wrong, though, I'm going nuclear with the 349 In Soviet Russia jokes I've been hiding under my mattress.

    6. I shouldn't have been so hysterical - I do think it'll be more or less the same, but the fact that they're not saying anything about it does make me wonder.

      @Phin The account conversion is just the first step. PowWow is a whole new thing that hasn't happened yet.

    7. Honestly I was just worried about having to start over with zero friends and followers. Having zero friends in real life is enough!

    2. Personally, I am completely fine with whatever ranking puts me on the same list as those folks.

    3. Ah come on. We can be honest about this stuff. I'm just trying to start a conversation.

    4. I'm not even saying they are bad, just overrated.

  7. Fine, I agree Top 5 guy. So, please produce your own recent greatest hit for our inspiration. Here's mine..

    2. Now that is a clever response. The link to your own comments was my favorite part.

    5. I have no idea what this means, and frankly I don't have the energy to figure it out. Yuni is a woman, not a "guy who," and she's cool by me. She knows baseball well and sticks to DUAN. My comment in her thread was silly at best, but, as I said - I was tired and it was DUAN. I really doubt she had a problem with it, but whatever. Go stir shit up somewhere else - I'm going to bed.

  8. I wandered over to Gawker today and got a notification that I had to immediately convert my account or face death. I created a fake Facebook, aligned it with my commenting account, and VOILA! I was done. Nothing changed.

    Replies
    1. I created a fake Twitter account for it, but was logged into my personal Twitter in a different tab when I started the actual converting process. My Gawker ID converted with my personal Twitter instead of my fake one. I don't particularly care that it synched up with the wrong one, and haven't noticed a difference since it happened. I don't think this is a big deal at all.
