You're All A Bunch Of Whiny Fucking Bitches

It seems like there is quite a blob of blogs about Eve these days. I think it's great that technology and the meta-gaming aspect of Eve and the web have allowed the Eve blogging community to thrive and grow over the past couple of years. Unfortunately, it seems like a large number of people are starting to take silly fun writings about a video game way too seriously. At some point, several members of this community stopped being concerned with quality or entertaining or self-fulfilling writing and began being more concerned with their internet traffic, number of subscribers, twitter discussions, blog-pack recognition, in-game shout outs, blah, blah, blah. It seems to have come to even more of a head when CrazyKinux, self proclaimed "Blog Father" (and I stress the self-proclaimed part) decided to refactor and revamp his list of blogs that are displayed on his site and also linked to via Capsuleer.


A recap of last episode on "As The Eve-Bloggers Whinefest Turns":

- CrazyKinux states intentions to revamp blog pack.

- Roc Wielier responds.

- Kirith Kodachi responds.

- Hallan Turrek begs for support from his readers to vote for his blog.

- Alexia Morgan/Black Claw whines like a whiner.

- CrazyKinux redefines his revamp due to the backlash.

I feel like I missed something somewhere. Are we getting something out of being linked from the blog pack and getting an extra dozen visits a day? Is someone making money off of their blog and somehow this tiny bit of extra traffic makes or breaks whether or not you can buy a boiled egg for dinner tonight? If so, fucking let me in on the secret because I don't make shit off of this blog. I write it because I enjoy writing it. Maybe some of you have forgotten that that should be the main reason you are posting at all. If you really are concerned with increasing your video-game, internet-spaceships, blog readership then perhaps you should do it via some self-promotion and by posting quality writings, not by begging and bitching to be added to one of many blog roll-ups that exist around the community.

Additionally, I am tired of the attitude that everyone deserves a fair chance or that everyone is equal. Guess what. We're not. You know why I have traffic on this blog? It's because my writing is entertaining and because I am a fucking genius. If people aren't reading your stuff then it isn't because you're doing anything wrong. It's because you aren't as fucking good as I am or probably anyone else in the gigantic clusterfuck that is now the list of Eve blogs. Stop listening to all the stupid politically correct bullshit you got fed in kindergarten and when they stopped letting you play dodgeball so that no ones feelings would be hurt and realize that sometimes you're just not good enough. If the only way you can feel good about your life is to see higher traffic numbers on your internet-video-game-blog-that-means-nothing then perhaps it is time to seriously consider suicide, because it sounds like your life is going nowhere.

GROW UP DIPSHITS

Ahh Spectre, your ability to make me laugh astounds even me. Thanks for keeping your head screwed on straight :)

Squizz Caphinator said...

Screwed on straight? I'd say his head is screwed on crooked.. but he's definitely more fun that way :)

Y does it burn when IP?

Andrea skye said...

whining about the whining! Whiner!

PS i still hate you for another couple of hours, after last nite.

I can't tell you how much I agree. people just need to get over themselves and accept the facts. If some bloggers can't take the heat, get out of the kitchen.

CrazyKinux should just do whatever he feels like, and the community should just deal with it.

Lol, I noticed these posts infecting capsuleer as well. Post starting with an aside, then getting subtly on to the begging, like a Nigerian scam letter. Thank you for exploding their lame, fake-apology-strewn efforts into the conscious eye.

This is why I love your blog mate! Naked, raw truth!

If only ck would concern himself with actual content instead of boosting his traffic for his ads.

Would be nice if he did not need to stand on the backs of others for his blog content.

What a fucking fake!

As if we don't see that he's a marketing tool for CCP!

Ever notice how ck has a contest to show how great a game eve onlne is when ccp is having failures in the game from game breaking bugs?

Ever notice how this poser fanboi tries to make ccp look good when that crap happens?

Fuck him and his blog pack, let the quality blogs, like this one continue to thrive!

1- Anonymous posters are anonymous wusses. Grow balls.

2- If people get into the blogging thing to get recognition, they're in it for the wrong reason. Blog because you feel like it first.

3- I must bow before the genius that is Spectre. Now quit whining about whiners and get yer ass on that damn blogpack so the entire planet can read you.

Kirith Kodachi said...

I tried to think of something witty and cool to comment, but it all sounded like epic fail.

Suffice to say I think this whole thing got out of hand somewhere along the way.

And agree with Cosmik on his first point.

Venom Orchid said...

I <3 you, is that so wrong? I gotta say, not only are you funny but you stick to who you are. That is very very refreshing in today's world. Your reference to dodgeball is great, we are becoming pussified I think. When I was in high school I played tennis and often I would serve a very hard and fast ball to the chest of my opponent for a point. It used to piss off the parents who spawned the receiving child. I won't apologize for being a winner. :)

CrazyKinux said...

Well said Spectre. Honest-no-bullshit-fuck-the-whiners answer!

One little "the-nit-picker-idiot-I-am": I never declared myself the Blog Father, though I did appreciate the gesture, I can't remember who did.

For all I care, you can call me your Wompa Wompa! :p

Love ya bro, and the next pint I drink will be in your honour!

Cheers!

I use Spectre's blog as an aggregator for the other EVE blogs I like to read. I am not entirely sure what a blog pack actually is or how it is supposed to work.

Also Spectre is the only one with a pony called Mrs Pilkins.

Michael Phoenix said...

fuck me, I think I love you Spectre.. i.e. I wanna have your babies. Since I am a dude, that means thousands of hours of research on how to make this happen, but happen it will dammit, because I want to produce offspring with someone who makes me laugh out-fucking-loud while at my desk at work reading the blog pack on my iPhone, prompting looks of confusion from co-workers.

Of course, I cannot tell them why, because they cannot possibly understand the significance of me laughing after reading post after post of whiners followed by pure gold on evenewb. Props to you sir!

Jaggins said...

I would marry you if you weren't so scary looking!

what a circlejerking of same faggotry

Anonymous said...

So much brown,nosing goes on its unbelievable. Spectre should just unzip so you can all blow him. Its been a well know fact that the blogging community has always sucked and consists of mostly self-absorbed douches, Spectre included.

Josh (GH) said...

@anon above me: What's the matter, afraid to show your name? Cry some more.

Hilarious how many people want to smack, but are afraid to do it with a name that can be traced to a blog or ingame character. If you're afraid to stand by what you're saying, you shouldn't be saying it at all. Pussies.

Omgah said...

These posts were spectre address the blogging community are kinda boring tbh. Not really sure what about his blog is entertaining anymore, but it presents excellent trolling opportunities.

Josh (GH) said...

Omgah I hate you.

everamblings said...

I agree wholeheartedly with your post, though I think you took it a bit too far. But then again, that it the freedom of writing for yourself!

At the end of the day, that IS what it should be about.

I also think your opinion of the my intentions may have been skewed, but whatever.

Always appreciate your balls out approach.

Spectre said...

Skye: Eat shit.

CK: Fair enough. It is what you refer to yourself as now though.

Michael: For 10 billion ISK you can have me for one night. All of me.

Anon #5: You boost my self-importance even further with your comment. I appreciate it.

Roc: I think you might be misunderstanding. Nothing in this post was really aimed at you or Kirith or CK. I was only linking to your blog entry and it's resulting comments to help explain what I was talking about in the rest of this post.

Omgah said...

I kinda want to ask http://www.evebloggers.com/ to remove me from their list. My blog is supposed to be super sekret.

Steel said...

Ha, was waiting for this post.

Ran across this article today and it seemed strangely appropriate.

Mynxee said...

There is a giant nugget of truth in this post's comedy gold. Made me laugh so hard at work when I read this, I had to apologize to my adjacent cube neighbors for disrupting their calm.

Yargok said...

Hm, to be fair, you kinda have the same stance as Black Claw, except the elitist part..

I was going to write a post containing something like "HTFU and stop emo-raging over blogfame for your made-up character.."

But then the funny part is if this post had been made by someone else then you, it had been met with much hostility.. or atleast many had not agreed openly.
So now they are brown-nosing you in a way ;)

astral dominix said...

lol self restraint really isnt your thing is it LMFAO

oh and for the record in the months i have been blogging i have made a grand total of 16 pence.. so no dont ever get in to it for money do it for fun.

Teister said...

I just wanted to pop on here and tell everyone I have no opinion on any of this.

I will say, however, that CK is a giant cumguzzling homo retard that if there were a god, he would give CK cancer. Not because of this 21 whiney carebear blogroll stuff but because he deserves it.

Also, I once banged Spectre and it was the best experience of my pre-teen life.

Michael Phoenix said...

"Michael: For 10 billion ISK you can have me for one night. All of me."

Sweet victory.

*logs on to grind for isk*

Oh and fuck you anonymous dickwads.

Anonymous said...

You guys posting with your carefully manicured names linking to blogs about internet spaceships are the real fuckwads. We can't be bothered registering for a Blogger account to pimp our pointless views and grow our epeens. You should be grateful that you have normal people commenting on your fucking losers' playground.

Giant Internet Faggot said...

Just for newest retarded anonymous guy, many people require that you have a blogger account to leave comments on their blog. Not every blog is awesome enough to allow anonymous posters.

Ancy Denaries said...

I can't really say anything but that I agree :D

antithaca said...

lmfao. vote republican?

ZedrikCayne said...

You're on blogger, so you *can* try and make a little bit of cold hard cash with it.

Hit your control panel and click the monetize link. Until you hit $100 they won't cut you a check, but they will pay you for advertisements on your blog.

k2 said...

so you come cry on the interent also, lol way to prove ur point that everyones a whiny bitch. even you

asdfasdf said...

complaining about people who bitch makes you exactically the same as them, exept you had to go somewere else and cry about it, instead of saing it to them, congradulations.
