"YOU FAT F**K"

30 August 2007

The title of this entry seems to be the name I have acquired on YouTube.

The Internet is a strange thing and one of the things that I find the strangest is the rudeness and vulgarity aimed at someone who has done nothing to you and whom you don't even know.

Here are some comments which have appeared on some of the videos I've posted to YouTube.

A video I made, intended to be funny, about carrying scrapbooks from the living room upstairs, is one of the prime targets for these attacks.  If you don't like bad language, stop reading now:

what a fucking whining self-centered bitch. While some poor shmuck works 50 hours a week to pay for her renovations, she's stuck doing 2 hours worth of work.

Major attention whoring. What a fucktard.

She is too damn old to be making videos this boring. Grab a crossword puzzle and stay the fuck off of YouTube!

aint i glad that im yung and thin aww this makes me think being old is gonna suck

tht i dubble l she fkin sick as fuck tha fat twat

(I'm not even sure what that last one means.  I may be a "fucktard" but at least I can spell!)

I made a video to show the distortion I was getting on our Comcast and that sparked a few interesting comments as well.

it takes about a week for them to get a tech out to me. And you don't see me complaining, two days isn't that long, try reading a book or something, it will be educational.

After Peggy's friend Chris committed suicide, I made a video talking about my thoughts on suicide.  I received this note:

FAT FUCKING SHIT FACED WHORE!!!!

Go suck some balls you old bitch

yea..you are rambling, dumbass.

A video about one of the demonstrations at City Hall on Valentine's day, when gay couples attempted to get marriage licenses elicited this very confusing comment:

She's trying to take the attention off her an act like she cares about them, she acts like she cares about same sex couples. Then she tries to change the subject to immagtarion. She is the worst kind of scum... She is a pathetic liar...

On a video responding to some sort of a dust-up that was going on in a videoblogging group, I got these unlikely messages:

FUK ME URE BEAR FAT LOL SORT IT OUUT FAT GIRL FAT FAT FAT

OOOOOAHHH TUBBY TUBBY LARDO

On a video I made when I stopped, driving from Davis to San Francisco, two people commented:

why would you make something this boring, who cares, I'd rather watch static

Why would she think we care? It's an ugly woman's take on an ugly area.

On a video I made showing how to make Mexican won ton:

looks like a load of your fat ass shit in a pan

Those are just the comments that I didn't delete.  The "good" ones, as it were.  The really bad comments I deleted.  But, you know, it just boggles my mind that total strangers can heap all this verbal abuse on someone without knowing them, without having any interaction with them whatsoever.  I'm sure most of these posters are kids thinking they are being funny, and I actually don't even mind the insults.  Heck, you don't need to tell me I'm fat.  It's no news to me.  But the comments are designed to be so hurtful.

Is this what our society has come to?

PHOTO OF THE DAY

I just like this photo, which I took for a Flickr group
