Fuck you, Part II.

Seriously, fuck you. I know, I said it before, but: Fuck. You.

So some Not-for-Profit publishes stuff you don’t like. Okay. Spokesperson to said Not-for-Profit has tried to talk to you for nigh two months, a fact you have ignored because it was, well, terrorist-style, or something. Okay.

So you bomb said Not-for-Profit’s website and DNS entries. O … k. Different people swing different ways, fine by yours truly. But why the flying fuck don’t you stop being, well, an asshole?

Asshole: Somebody who acts like a poop-shoot even though he (or she, this is an equal-opportunity thing) knows he (or she) had decided to ignore the straw to cling to, ages ago. And now bitches about it, using all the lever he (or she) has at his (or her) disposal.

Like, two months ago. Before all that Wikileaks stuff got published. You guys were approached. Not in an arrogant way, not at all. But hey, we’re in charge, so, eh, fuck you?

Well, enjoy the ass-biting. Also enjoy said ass-biting, certain media with no interest in journalism. You got the stuff weeks ago and dedicated more than 40 journalists to it. That’s what you got out of it? Seriously?

Get a new job. Or see your reverend. Or check your balance. Whatever, just stop this nonsense. The people who know, know. Those who don’t care, well, won’t care. So for fuck’s sake, stop this idiocy.


The police enjoy their sport way too much.

Flattr this

So you really like this Kneubühl dude. Robin Hood of Biel! Kicking the establishment’s arse left and right! Standing against huge governmental opposition, still: no kowtow from him! And the police, ha! The police are clowns. Can’t even capture a pensioner! Just look how they deal with this situation, what their plans were to arrest Peter-Hans! Amateurs!

Yes, because you know all there is to know about the Kneubühl case. It’s in the news, after all, so we all saw how stupidly the police acted, heard their reasoning, know of their braindead plans.


Do you really believe that the police will publish their every move in the media? Let me rephrase this – do you think that what they claim to have done and what’s still to come is The Truth™?

It must be, as it’s in the news. No matter that the fugitive is very likely reading the same papers, watching the same TV shows you do. Receiving the same information you do. The police apparently enjoy their sport, so it’s only natural they publicly present their strategy onscreen. It wouldn’t be fun if the opponent didn’t exactly know what they were doing next, now would it?

When the media cater for search patterns.

No, I won’t frame it, so I’ll leave out the author’s name and obvious keywords including “r+ssist” and “k+pftuchm+dchen”. (Google tells me those are the most prominent search terms I could use, so I won’t.) If you read this blog, you already know what I’m talking about or wonder, again, about my booze consumption. Anyway.

It puzzles me how so many people go rampant on FREE SPEECH even though there is no censorship. I mean, the book in question is being re-printed, as we speak, for the 250000th time. Does this sound like censorship to you?

Also, the whole “nobody dared openly telling the truth before” thing. Duh? If no-one did before, why the hells do you think this is such a topic in political circles? Where do you guess does the Nazikeule come from? A beard in the sky?

This whole discussion is stupid beyond belief, hence no trigger words for you today, GoogleBot! (Awww.) Deal with it, nothing to feed the Fear Machine here. (Okay, there’s tons of self-righteous blog postings out there, so fare thee well!) Sorry, but I don’t enjoy being another brick in the wall. (That was uncalled for, I just log what people write.) Yes you do, but fuck, you are getting fucked by SEO. (Don’t rub it in, please.) Okay. No harm meant. (Thanks.) Don’t mention it.

Reality check: You’re not the Media’s customers.

No, you’re a necessary evil. The real customers are advertising companies and all them salespeople that want to peddle their goods. Most TV formats are interruptions to the ongoing flow of publicity and marketing, their content shrewdly determined by what-people-want-to-see. So the audience sits through this ad fest and believes itself understood and informed.

Sometimes, the Media work hand-in-hand to ensure what-people-want-to-see is what-the-real-customers-want-to-have-associated-with-their-product. Woah, loads of hyphens right there. Apologies.

This also goes for magazines and many newspapers, the latter being a tad more aggressive than their TV counterparts: Let’s make sure there’s a world-wide ban of distributing content which hasn’t been properly licensed from big news agencies. After all, we all print the same stuff to save on wages for reporters. Gods forbid if people could actually read those news without advertisements; our customers wouldn’t be happy about that, would they?

So – support public-law offerings (you pay for them after all, hence you are the customer), and: the Indies. Buy shows on DVD or online if they are worth it. Take yourself out of the equation, atta boy.

Facebook is worse than WWII.

Stop bitching at Facebook, there’s a good chap. I know it’s “in” to point privacy-aware fingers, especially if you’re working for an old-world media outlet. Sure, we all want to protect our jobs privacy. But bashing online services for things your own company has been dreaming of doing for years makes you look like a sore loser.

It gets super-stupid if you bitch and moan just to use some of them cursed technologies yourself. The Swiss TV show Kassensturz is a prime example. Let this screenshot speak for itself:

Seriously. Stop it. Read the News Posts, check the settings, and you won’t need guides such as the one from the former ReclaimPrivacy project. If you have enjoyed any form of liberal upbringing or education, you know what to look for without them parts of the press that are mortally afraid of the Wobble telling you how evil some companies can be. You know: Explaining “security issues” that a) have been around and well-documented for months and b) aren’t really concerns as, after all – it’s bloody Facebook. You want to be found and share information, don’t you? Why else sign up for a bleeding social network?

You can still turn crap off. Or quit Facebook, Twitter et al. Just don’t be a Cussing Lemming while playing all-high-and-mighty about not being a Social Media Lemming.

I enjoy circular arguments.
