Normally I would have left all the shoutwire stuff alone, but slating bulshoy really isn't right.
Hello fellow TANners,
I'm not sure if you have all seen this but shoutwire has started it's latest "look what we're gunna do!" project. If you haven't seen it it is Here.
Now besides the fact that the design looks like it's been drawn up by a three year old, the thing that really was uncalled for was saying Bulshoy 'stabbed them in the back'. Bul left because he was fed up of basically single handedly maintaining the site, with shit all getting done about the problems. Suddenly when there is a max exodus to TAN and TAN starts offering all the things that shoutwire so nicely cut out, they can miraculously get things fixed? That's wishful thinking.
First they don't have someone who extensively knows coding like Big does, secondly they admit manually moving articles through with the '15 hour rule', and now they are trying to appeal to file sharers by claiming a day of torrents. If people want torrents they tend to go to torrent/streaming sites ya know? Shoutwire doesn' t need all that.
Anyways, Bulshoy spent the best part of 3 years maintaining that site and until he left he was the main spam deleter, often at times the only one. Not only that he didn't leave and cause a massive fuss, he simply left and came across to TAN. Now if he'd posted an ed bashing Shoutwire, or maybe deleted some stuff, or abused admin privs, then yes you could say he stabbed them in the back, but he didn't. He actually specifically said to people in the TAN chat room that he wouldn't stab them in the back as he promised dock he wouldn't do that.
Which nicely comes around to dock. If anyone reads that ed that has read any of zero's stuff before, they will know that is not zero. It is most likely dock as he has a penchant for creating other nicknames and pretending to be other people. So it seems that although Bulshoy promised dock he would not stab him in the back, dock obviously didn't see that agreement as mutual.
So to summarise, shoutwire is claiming loads of new changes (how many times have we heard that), that they are fixing all the spam and ads, and now are offering the stuff that they said they wouldn't do. They are still deleting comments and are still deleting blogs that are not spam, are actually a legitimate blog (the one I posted about TAN but was in no way telling everyone to leave shoutwire).
Oh yeah and in firefox you still have to click a link 5 times to open it. Sometimes you just can't resurrect a ship that's sunk.
