I don't own one either, so I have the same reasons as that article.No, and this post pretty much sums up why:
Okay, I added you :knockedou
Yeah, I kinda slacked off on that one, so here goes.I'm anxiously awaiting this.
The article linked in this one is from June of last year, and since then myspace has turned all younger members pages to private. Yeah kids can circumvent that by entering a higher age, but that is a problem of the parents not monitoring their kids internet usage, not myspace's problem. Oh yeah, I just let my 16 year old daughter give her phone number and address out to anyone on the internet and myspace sent some pervert out here to have sex with her... How dare they? There are Eminem songs that drop responsibility on parents. I mean come on.10. People got hurt as a direct or indirect result of the site.
Well, it's a personal prefence here. But seeing as it's their myspace page there is nothing you can do about it. Would you not hang out with someone because you didn't like the color of their living room? Of course if you know someone well enough to go to their myspace pages enough for it to bother you, you would think you could muster up the courage to tell them that it's messing with the functionality of their site. Or you could just complain about it.9. Most of the ----ty backgrounds users choose
Nobody that I know that uses myspace ever even calls it that. It's a buzzword, like 'Corporate Footprint' or 'Nascar Dad's'. Only people in marketing, jerk journalists and people who complain about myspace use that phrase. See what kind of club you are in now? I do not see this as a valid reason to not have a myspace page.8. The phrase "Social Networking" makes me want to punch someone in the face.
Again, personal musical preference. Yeah people have crappy music on their myspace pages. I turn it off before I ever let it load up, and then I move on. If a song moves you enough that you want to share it with the world, I don't see any reason to stop you. This is kinda a pet peeve of mine, people who are such snobs about music that any kind they don't like is crap. Music is objective.7. ----ty Music
I mean really, this is a retarded reason not to have a myspace page. If you think there is too much crap on people's page, then don't put too much crap on yours. This has got to be the most misanthropic top ten list ever.6. Too Much Bull----
See above (misanthropic).5. I Don't Care What Johnny Football Star is Doing (or professing to be doing) Now
There's a reason why you don't talk to most of the people you went to high school with--you don't have anything in common anymore (not that you ever did except for the fact that you were corralled into a place where you were supposed to be learning something). Leave well enough alone, let it go!
The world would be much friendlier if people would forget about those they knew and move on to meet new people. In the words of the fake Kurt Vonnegut commencement speech: "Understand that friends come and go, but with a precious few you should hold on."
Me neither. I am there for the social networking.4. I'm Not Interested in Online Dating
Welcome to the internet. You are going to want to get some high speed pretty soon. All of my friends pages load up right away for me.3. Each Page Takes Too Long to Load
When you go to the grocery store and the cashier asks how you are doing, do you really think she cares how you are doing? Would you even want to bother her with your problems if you weren't doing well? No. Here we call it southern hospitality, but around the world it's called just plain being nice. Also, if you are so concerned about the lack of meaning ful communication on myspace, then have meaningful communication with your friends. It's up to you to do it, not your right to complain about it.2. Empty Communication
Because Writing A Paragraph In Bold And Capitalizing Every Word Is Fine Because Myspace Sucks And I Am Complaining About It. Also, since when are self-fulfillment, exhibition and seizing opportunity vices?1. After Carefully Considering the Word "MySpace," and Thinking About What the Site Really Is and What It's Used For, It's Evident That It's Nothing More than an Unsafe Website that is Tailored for Self-Fulfillment, Exhibitionism, Opportunists, and People Who Can't Let Go of the Past
Also..Again, personal musical preference. Yeah people have crappy music on their myspace pages. I turn it off before I ever let it load up, and then I move on. If a song moves you enough that you want to share it with the world, I don't see any reason to stop you. This is kinda a pet peeve of mine, people who are such snobs about music that any kind they don't like is crap. Music is objective.
This list has one thing I hate about most websites. Unecessary multiple pages. Couldn't fit all that on one page? Run out of e-paper? I mean jesus christ. Most websites do it to serve more ads, but if you don't have ads you are just being a jerk. At least on myspace it's all one page.
Myspace is however, accessible. People who wouldn't normally be on the internet are now able to use it to the best of their minor abilities, connecting with people and sharing pictures, videos and text.
