More Sayville.com Shenanigans

Posted by dakeeper on March 17, 2007

Ok, here’s a great idea. Let’s post a picture of a chimp with a gun and post it with a blurb about ‘criminals from other towns coming into Sayville’. Wtf are you thinking?? I’m into funny stuff but c’mon, that was just lame. Not only was it bad but you just had a 19 year old white kid get busted with serious drug charges and another white guy put a gun to his neighbors head causing the gunman’s white wife to kill herself with another gun. The whole ‘we’re innocent pigs in toyland’ crap ain’t flying dude.

If, as it is so apparently clear, that you want to be funny, please be original.

Accountability Ashmountability

Posted by switters on March 14, 2007

You know, whenever I’m feeling stress at work over things that I’m held responsible for but I may or may not have control over, I start fantasizing that I have one of those jobs where you are not held accountable in any way for the things you say or do. You know, like a TV weatherman or, I don’t know, the president of the United States.

A timely message from “DaKeeper”

Posted by switters on March 11, 2007

In the process of trying to delete some stored files from this blog, I came across the file that DaKeeper (aka The Keeper, aka Heretic) uploaded as his avatar. Now that I’ve seen the original I’m sure he was quite disappointed that wordpress doesn’t show it as an animated image, since it conveys such an important message. For anybody who is interested, you can click here to see the original. There’s no sound, but you don’t have to be a certified interpreter for the deaf to make out the message.

A Little Story about Sears and Stupidity

Posted by switters on February 11, 2007

I’m at Sears Hardware last night and the guy ahead of me is paying for something with two hundred-dollar bills. The cashier does some little magic thing and reports that she can’t accept one because it’s fake.

Sayville.com Troll Infestation

Posted by dakeeper on February 5, 2007

It’s official:  Sayville.com is troll infested.  Just read the current posts and you can see how lame they are in trying to spark meaningless discussion (as if it really isn’t meaningless after all).  I’ve chosen to ignore Foxfan and her friends, if they are not other people at all and not just the same person.  I found it funny that she would think someone would try to find her if they knew where she had lunch….

 Anyway, I long for the days when we could hate each other over the Library.  When is the next hot debate coming up?

Another Correction for Newsday

Posted by switters on January 8, 2007

I am writing this as an open letter to the editors, altought it has long been quite clear that editing is one of the aspects of running a newspaper upon which Newsday places little value (other such aspects include journalistic integrity, accuracy, and respect for their audience).

Sayville’s Changing Face and Newsday’s Continuing BS

Posted by switters on January 7, 2007

In case you missed it, Newsday featured an article today called “Sayville’s Changing Face.” Millpond pointed out some of the articles, uhm, inconsistencies, on the sayville.com forum (if they delete the thread, you can see a snapshot here). Good work Millpond, but you missed two biggies. Read the rest of this entry »

Holiday Vandalism

This is my response to The Keeper’s question on the “Walgreen’s Take 2” thread and the “Disheartened Thread” in general.

I’m a little sick and tired of these ‘activists’

Posted by dakeeper on December 2, 2006

“There’s a perception that black male youth are more dangerous, more violent and more likely to be armed than their white counterparts,” said activist lawyer Ron Kuby. “That concern about young black men permeates the police department and results in police shooting black youth under circumstances where they would not shoot white people.”

The Banned Walgreen’s Thread

Posted by jimh on November 22, 2006

When Switters posted some of the deleted threads, the most recent posts were missing, I guess because Google hadn’t cached them before they were banished. Beginning with my first post on the thread, I have it all saved on my computer, so, in the interest of the historical record, I am posting it here: Read the rest of this entry »
