Yeah so it seems to me that either myspace is held very highly in someones life, or very very lowly. Personally, everyone I know has a myspace and loves it, except for a select few who absolutley loathe it.

I'm one of the ones that refuses to have a myspace on principle alone. But my brother gives his reasons, which I find fairly funny:

QUOTE
Yeah F****** Right.

Do people actually write, read or comment on blogs? Even the most popular goddamn profiles in this hell hole have like 20 comments tops on their blogs. Just proves to me how this place is some sort of cheap ego booster for "depressed" middle class teenager, mad over the fact that they got an RSX instead of an RL. Boohoo.

This place is so full of f****** vain emo/hardcore kids it's insane! I imagine some dirty hipster sitting at his computer getting on this s*** nightly playing "hot or not" but instead of "hot" he hits "add as friends"

"Like, OMG, your bands suck but I like your sweater and nice haircut ADD!"

Myspace is one big NonUglyEmos LJ community, thirteen million strong and counting.



I dont think its to be hated to his extreme, but what do you think?

I have one and tend to read the bullitins - it would be nice to have a friends page like Livejournal as opposed to having to log in, then click blog home and then read each one individually - yes it is like hot or not and like any such profile site there are more men (often with minimal profiles to get in to view girls pictures) then there are women - (on one the ratio was about 10 to 1)

oh and I have no comments on my blog (and very little angst too)

Yeah it's a bit weird. I'm on it and I get random add requests from people who are completely... well... all the personality of a goal post. 5 pages of friends requests a day and almost none of them could spell.

Saying that I have met some cool people through it. Got to take the good with the bad I guess. But if I get one more message from some cheap 16 year old crack whore wannabe that goes "U r so hot!1 aDD m3!!!!11" I think I'm gonna cut someone.

I got a myspace account last year just for the hell of having one, everyone seemed to so I thought there must be some appeal. Never went on it again. Not that there was anything wrong with it, there was just nothing to do and I though 'bah, why waste my time on pointless things like that when I could be doing more pointless stuff but getting fun from it too.'

My sister has tried over and over agian to explain to me why she likes it, but I don't seem to be able to understand. It just seems like another site dedicated to people posting their pictures so that they can be told over and over agian how beatiful they are.

I'm not saying that anyone who has an account there is horrible or anything, I'm just saying that it seems like a big game of Hot or Not to me.

It seems like a mass ego-stroking for people who like feeling tragic and unloved until some other online friend tells them what a special person they are. It looks very pointless and time-wasting to me.

Ditto. I found a few people I hadn't seen since 8th grade on there (which was 10 years ago now...). I made an account because it wouldn't let me message them otherwise.

I really don't like the format of it. I only use it to message those people...that's it. For actual blogging purposes I use LJ.

im guilty. probably every kid in my entire school has one. i dont blog in it at all though. i also use LJ if i blog. i think its kind of a cool way to keep in touch with people and stuff. but my page is awesome. i hate people who put pictures of their naked ass up in my face or sketchy people who request you and you dont know them. i know a lot of people though.... i have like 200 people on mine and i know all of them.

The only reasonable reason for joining Myspace I can see would be for finding old/lost friends. But I'm gussing most of you agree that alot of people on there are "some dirty hipster sitting at his computer getting on this s*** nightly playing "hot or not" but instead of "hot" he hits "add as friends"" ?

I kind of like it as rabbit wolves. I'll change it though tongue.gif

I think we already had a myspace thread. I have one and you can find me if you can find the matazone group that I started on there. We don't really use the forums anymore, but it's kind of fun to have the little tag on my profile, and it pimps out mata's site while I'm at it.

Do you think if there was a rabbit-wolf hybrid, that instead of taking huge chunks out of you when it attempts to eat you, it would take nibbles? huh.gif

Nah, that's what annoying small dogs do. Rabbits just panic and pee on you if they're scared. tongue.gif If there was a rabbit-wolf hybrid, it would probably roam in packs, bring down deadly carrots in packs, and sniff wistfully in the direction of the moon.

Apparently, I do indeed Myspace. blink.gif

I opened an account a little while back when a mate had a band space he wanted me to look at. I didn't do anything with it, it just kinda sat there. So today I thought I'd set it up properly just for the hell of it - hands up those who think I'm likely to regret this shortly? wink.gif

Actually, I regret it already if only because if I want to personalise it (which I'm such a sucker for) I need to use HTML, which I know is childs play, but I'm still backward enough with the PC that I'm not sure I can be bothered.

I'm sure it'll be like several other of my random accounts where I check it daily out of habit, meet a cool person who will always be a one off and then delete whatever else falls into my inbox. Ahhh, apathy, my old friend.

Anyone want to join my friends group to make me feel a little less pathetic? biggrin.gif

Even my slightly crazy LJ-addicted friends refuse to use MySpace for pretty much all of the reasons listed. They scream at anyone they find using what they refer to as "that filthy emo mess." It's funny watching the rivalries of online journals and forums as people are attracted to new trends. laugh.gif

I found yours on my travels and was really chuffed to find you like i-def-i. I discovered them from a mate who plays in Profane. Still trying to convince those guys into to playing somewhere south of Birmingham. biggrin.gif

I feel that how you use Myspace really does change the response you get from it. If you're blatently going to use it to get laid (pictures of you in your underwear or using a particularly offensive word in your title will do this) then you really shouldn't be surprised that you get twats contacting you.

I've made it reasonably clear on there that I'm looking for people to chat to and NOT some sordid net crap and I'm picky about who I allow to contact me.
