I WILL WIN!

A Note to the Media, Concerning Virginia Tech:
Tuesday. 4.17.07 9:07 pm
Note: I've mirrored this post here. If you have any problems commenting, please comment there.
I noticed your presence at the student-led vigil this evening. Well, I noticed two of your stooges. I don't know who they were, but they were cameramen.
I was a bit disgusted when people began taking pictures during the moment of silence. Not just the media, but even the students. However, that's not the point of this post.
A girl broke down crying, she was sobbing, as if she knew at least one of the dead. I don't know if she did, if she didn't or who she even was, but for more than one of you to come and try to film her is sickening.
We moved to stop you, and you kept trying.
Well here's something about us. We're persistent too. For you to try to take advantage of one of us at such a time is DISGUSTING. Especially when students have made it known that your presence in such a situation is NOT wanted.
Not only did you get snippy with us, you wouldn't go away. One of use came up to your lens, and started singing. You STILL wouldn't go away. It wasn't until we started a small mob, and moved between your camera and the girl that you gave up. Even after our first movement, you wouldn't go away, and we had to FOLLOW YOU AROUND!
How can you be such a jackass, so inconsiderate, all so you can "get the scoop"?
You weren't the only person to do this. Thankfully, the second guy was short, so it was easier to block his assholiness.
Both of you need to be fired from your positions for being so rude, callous, disrespectful, and inconsiderate of us during such a trying time.
The world knows we mourn. They know we are upset, and they know that we hurt. In the meanwhile, keep your damn cameras out of our faces unless we're okay with it.
Filming a girl crying while her back is to you is low. I don't care that we're in public. I don't care that you've got an almighty press pass.
What the both of you did was WRONG, and I hope you both lose your job. I hope your editors see your footage of us moving to intercept you, I hope they realize that you're an asshole, and I hope and pray that you get it through your heads that it is nowhere near appropriate to act in the manner that you did.
In the future, when you "do your job" to "get the scoop" so you can have footage that someone else doesn't, please, please, PLEASE, be more mindful of what you're doing.
Also, a note to Metro.co.uk:
Titling a story "The girl who led to massacre" is WRONG. I don't care that she's dead and can't contest it. Her family is still alive, and I'm very certain they miss her dearly. I can't believe that such a thing would be said, even if she may have been (in)directly involved in the events that followed. It is in no way her fault that the guy she broke up with (or is rumored to have done so) snapped.
"This is the face of the teenage student who may have sparked the biggest gun massacre in US history." THIS IS NOT ACCEPTABLE FROM ANY MEDIA OUTLET.
(Note: They've changed the title, but the opening sentence is still the same)
Dateline, you are horrible. I don't know if this is actually true, but given how the rest of the media has acted, as well as Dateline's style of reporting, I would NOT put it past them.
Tokyo Broadcasting system, you are horrible. (For those who don't have Facebook, it's a TBS reporter looking for friends of Cho.)
It's going to be pretty hard for healing to start if the media won't go stop harassing students in their time of mourning.
A Note to Burger King:
Friday. 10.6.06 3:54 pm
Dear Burger King:
I enjoy your food. Perhaps a bit more than I should.
However, I don't enjoy that you seem to have phased out the honey (flavored sauce) in your restaurants.
What am I supposed to flavor my chicken products with now?
Now, a Note to religious groups.
Wednesday. 4.25.07 1:04 pm
As NuTang knows, I've been angry with the media following last week.
Now that the media has more or less left down, the religious zealots are here.
ZOMG! Take our pamphlet!
Do you know God?
You're a heathen, you can be forgiven!
Free food! Free drinks, snacks, and fruit! Just be proselytized to!
Religious people, go away. If we need you, we'll find you.
Methodists, you can stay. You give hugs, baked goods, and wishes of well-being, without any proselytizing. Keep doing that, and you'll stay awesome.
A note to the Commonwealth of Virginia:
Saturday. 2.24.07 7:10 pm
Don't apologize for slavery.
I don't care how many crazy, disillusioned people whine and gripe and do whatever to make you think that you SHOULD apologize, you shouldn't.
No one alive today is directly affected by slavery. If they are, they're probably in a nursing home. No one alive today that had relatives during slavery times, has owned slaves. If they did... they're dead.
I refuse to accept any apology, because the thought is ridiculous.
I'm going to write the governor a letter, as well as my local congresspeople, and any one else that was involved in voting for this damn apology.
I'm going to tell them that they're ridiculous.
A formal apology isn't going to change anything, it's going to make the black people think, "oh crap! We got an apology, reparations can't be far behind!"
it's going to make the white people think "Hrm... stupid whiny black people..."
To those who think we at NuTang are mean:

I quote for you, a section of the NuTang TOS.

You will not attempt in any way to commit arbitrage on NuTang's revenue-sharing program. This includes any form of unsolicited traffic generation, with such categorization up to the discretion of NuTang's management.
You acknowledge that NuTang does not pre-screen Content, but that NuTang and its designees shall have the right (but not the obligation) in their sole discretion to refuse or move any Content that is available via the Service. Without limiting the foregoing, NuTang and its designees shall have the right to remove any Content that violates the NuTOS or is otherwise objectionable.

You understand that the technical processing and transmission of the Service, including your Content, may involve (a) transmissions over various networks; and (b) changes to conform and adapt to technical requirements of connecting networks or devices.
Now, after you've read all of that (I'm sure you haven't), you will realize that the users of NuTang are interested in keeping NuTang a blogging community. Not for providing a place to dump your anime/manga/TV show links, not just for making money, but for blogging.
We aren't putting you down, we're just letting you know that as a community, we do NOT appreciate what you are doing.
I don't know if dave does warnings and things like that, but when you sign up for NuTang, you agree to the TOS.
If you can't follow them, you shouldn't be here.
We're not being mean, but there comes a point, where after having mentioned numerous times that you SHOULD NOT do something, and you continue to do it, people are going to stop being as polite as they were in the first place.
You've seen what happened to the others who were doing the same. There's been an open discussion on what to do with people who say that they want to host anime in the invite queue. Time after time, we've said no, we don't want them here, they're going to bastardize the spirit of NuTang. Time after time, we've grumbled that people were doing what you were doing, we were vocal about it, and if I'm not mistaken, it was confirmed to be a TOS violation by dave.
At this point, you are in the wrong, and you do not deserve to be on NuTang. To make a whiny entry saying "well, everyone is mean, I'm leaving", without telling the other side of the story only strengthens the case against you. It only confirms that you are not here for the sake of blogging or getting to know people.
NuTang is one of the most friendly blogging services I, or any of my friends have used. No one here will dislike you for being yourself. If they do, they ignore your blog.
When you constantly put yourself out in everyone's face and the act like the victim after you've annoyed everyone, you're only hurting yourself.
I'm sure I've broken TOS a few times, but if I were to be told as such, I would make every effort to rectify it, while not whining that everyone is mean.
RULES EXIST FOR A REASON.
NuTang is located in the United States.
If world news is anything unlike American news, then you should know that we have awful organizations called the MPAA, and RIAA, as well as a few others that like to sue people for exorbitant amounts of money.
Since NuTang is located in the U.S., it has to comply with U.S. laws.
To Whomever it is that Breaks NuTang:
Saturday. 3.31.07 4:17 pm
I'm going to be a bit immature with this, but I'm sure the sentiment is shared by the NuTang community.
YOU. FUCKING. SUCK.
Get a life, find something else to do. NuTang hasn't done anything to you for you to keep uploading whatever software it is that keeps fucking up the site.
It's not cool.
Oh, so we're mean? I've already discussed this.
We're only mean because we're tired of jackasses such as yourself doing the things you do. We come here to blog, have fun, and make a few dollars as an afterthought. There is more to life than making money, and the majority of NuTang is aware of that. Perhaps it's because we've been here for that long to know that NuTang isn't about the money, it's about the people.
Whoever you are, no one here likes you.
Whoever you are, you're making dave look bad.
Whoever you are, you probably shouldn't be here, because you're violating the TOS
Whoever you are... you suck. With teeth.
Whoever you are, I'm going to remind you once again: STOP IT.
Now, if I want to go edit this post, I can't, because you've broken NuTang, for the umpteenth time. Ok, I can, if I mess with things. That's not the point.
I hope you're happy. Actually, I hope you're quite unhappy, even emo. Go get laid or something.
