MySpace: It is done.

I finished my myspace page this past weekend:

Click here and be my friend!

A couple of notes:

It appears that women are completely comment and message raped on the site. Most of my friends who are female have said that it's "sketchy" that a lot of random guys just want hookups (as in sex) or how random guys make weird comments about how "good you look"

I have had very obscure people find me ... like a girl that rode my bus in junior high school.

Pages load VERY slow .. don't know if this is a poor coding problem or just heavy traffic.

I don't see myself being there a lot ... it doesn't really make a lot of sense to me.

I have been hit by the "friend whore" phenomenon ... seems people will just randomly message you to be your friend ... what do those people get? Anything? Is there some merit to having lots of friends in your network?

I removed a lot of the people from my page that I initially "friended" for various reasons.

The MySpace servers have been flakey as of late. The site appears to be growing in traffic more than they can catch up on. It's probably the equivalent of getting Slashdotted on a daily basis. I'm sure there's some bad coding involved too.

I figure as much ...

But the way the pages handle HTML is certainly an issue.

did you delete my recent post?

fixyourthinking said...

yes, but not for censor reasons ... I enjoyed the info ... some of it I already knew ... thanks for posting it ... it wasn't in the appropriate space and frankly I think it's so embarassing that I couldn't leave it up.

I'm not going to report on it ... but I know "people close to the story" already know.

alrighty then....

sorry for posting in the wrong space...

guess I'll get back to flying to close to the sun and collecting my 30 pieces of silver....

- burning, I fell from the sky, betrayed...
