it's bad enough having web "journalists" pull informal comments and post them as news, now we've got idiots harvesting email addresses.  i can see how sites like gameilluminati have definite benefits.

More love.

Hey, you know what? I think EVERY site on the internet should have a little More... button, and a little forum button, where everyone and their dog can post inane crap into a fancy .txt file about what they just read.

This is so much better than PlanetHappy ever was. muchas amore!

<Whisp> "
<Gabe> I got that too.
* Gabe blames Hulka
<JJZ> He has 2 first names!
<Jove> never met a mailing list I liked past the first three days...
<JJZ> 3 perhaps, depending on middle name.
<m0nty> hmm
<m0nty> "elaborate rouse"
<Whisp> I don't use it to post with
<Whisp> was he here when I mentioned it earlier?
<None-1a> ok now that took some trying I got the thing
<JJZ> There was an elaborate rouse in the game Rouge Spear.
<Whisp> damnit, that's the last time I use my real email address online
<Whisp> I thought we were free from lamers
<Whisp> what's pissing me off more is that he won't answer
<m0nty> the most elaborate rouse I ever saw was in that Wallace and Gromit
  animation
<m0nty> it took him 5 minutes to get up
<Gabe> Are we talking ruse?
<dolo> hehe
* dolo grins
<JJZ> Well, some of us are maybe.
<dolo> it's not a mailer... just wanted to make sure planetcrap people are
  aware the site is coming down
<Whisp> I don't  care
<m0nty> dolo + sub-editor = good article
<None-1a> heck when was the last time I used my @home address on PC
<dolo> must have been a long time ago...
<dolo> hehe
<Whisp> why did you put me on it?
<JJZ> Hm.  You'd think that the planetcrap people would be most aware.
<Gabe> A ruse is a wily subterfuge. Rouse is to be aroused or stirred.
<Whisp> Like I could miss it
<Whisp> You already told us here
<JJZ> It was a rousing battle.
<Whisp> we already knew anyway
<Whisp> take me off.
<dolo> gabe: in my context does it matter if I spell it ruse or rouse?
<dolo> whisp: that was a one time mailing...
<Gabe> Who the fuck is talking to you dolo?
<m0nty> dolo, yes
<Whisp> And if I get another I will complain to GSI that you are sending
  unsolicited emails
<m0nty> I'm a journalist, I should know
<dolo> hahah
<dolo> okay buddy
<Whisp> Thank you
* m0nty grumbles about amateur pseudo-journalists
<JJZ> Well, wait a mintute, it does matter if you spell it correctly.
<Gabe> I read a book once (the dictionary). It does matter.
<JJZ> Ah, the evil spelling chastizing with a typo.
<Whisp> I appreciate you trying to help, I don't appreciate emails I didn't
  ask for
<dolo> Is a chip on a shoulder catching?
<dolo> delete it then
<dolo> it was 2k
<dolo> big deal
<Whisp> I just want to be sure I don't get any more
<dolo> you gonna write 66k complaining about it?
<dolo> sorry if you feel violated...
<dolo> hehe
<m0nty> hmm
<Whisp> 66k?  words, or kb?
<m0nty> dolo, you don't come out of that IRC log looking like a genius
<dolo> i just delete spam
<Whisp> no wonder morn didn't want to sell you PC
<dolo> hehe
<Whisp> or even talk to you
<szcx> um, wtf?
<JJZ> If you're arrested, you should plead dolo contendre.
<dolo> Monty: those who look like geniuses seldom are.
<szcx> okay, you know what?  take me off your "announce" list.
<JJZ> contendere
<m0nty> I mean, of course he's going to be insulted if some guy he's never
  known comes and demands he give over his site
<m0nty> what did you expect?
<Gabe> Be nice to dolo, he had a breakdown awhile ago...
<m0nty> the reason morn posted it as a humour piece is that the joke is on YOU
<dolo> gabe: hasn't everyone?
<Whisp> And if start getting other stuff at this address, I'll know it was
  you, because this the ONLY time I've used it online
<Gabe> I can't speak for everyone.
<Gabe> I didn't though.
<dolo> monty: it takes a special intellect to be able to laugh at a joke
  regardless of its aim.
<Whisp> No breakdowns here
<JJZ> I love to laugh.
<m0nty> I keep getting reminded every now and then about why Americans have
  the reputation for not understanding irony
<Whisp> I'm having a temper tantrum now though
<m0nty> this is one of those times
<dolo> bah...
<dolo> there's not enough love in the world
<szcx> nobody likes a spammer, dolomite
<dolo> okay szcx: define spam.
<Whisp> unsolicited email
<dolo> what is the fucking name of the channel you are in?
<Jove> unasked for mail
<dolo> planetcrap
<szcx> unsolicited email pimping a product or service
<dolo> what the fuck was the email about?
<dolo> fucking planetcrap
<dolo> closing down
<dolo> okay
<m0nty> we KNOW dolo
<dolo> did i sell you a toaster???!?!?
<Jove> did he solicit it?
<Whisp> wow - thanks for the newsflash.
<m0nty> you're not telling us anything we don't know
<JJZ> Wait, Planetcrap is closing?
<dolo> did I ask you to buy my product?!
<Whisp> I didn't ask for the email
<JJZ> Oh, man, I've not been so sad about such a thing since I heard they shot
  Kennedy.
<Whisp> I'm personally in favor of opt-in being the only legal way to get on
  mailing lists
<JJZ> I heard last week.
<dolo> okay it's not a list
<szcx> you're pimping your site, that surprisingly enough has banner ads
<dolo> it's a BCC
<m0nty> Who shot who in the what now?
<dolo> i just bcc'd you all
<Whisp> then what is it dolo?
<Whisp> please don't do it again
<dolo> szcx: i have a little host file that disables the banners... you want
  it?
<Whisp> even if you don't understand why we object
<Whisp> please just accept that we didn't appreciate it
<dolo> we?
<m0nty> I hadn't really encountered the part of GSI which people dislike
  before, but I think I'm getting a taste now
<dolo> I count a few of you who don't.
<dolo> but for the others who might give a shit about pc... it was worth the
  risk.
<Gabe> http://www.planetcrap.com
<JJZ> I'm not sure what's to accomplish?
<Whisp> me and sczx both have said something
<dolo> monty: i don't work at GSI
<Whisp> I don't know about the rest
* m0nty throws up his hands in disgust
<m0nty> it's useless talking to him
<dolo> it's about your fucking site dufus!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
<Whisp> just please, no more email of any kind.
<dolo> don't you care?!?!
<JJZ> Hm.  Brand new application compatibility update autodownloaded.
<Whisp> Yes, but I already knew
<Gabe> Hey, I cared enough to post a story about it.
<Gabe> About the spam anyway...
<dolo> gabe: dufus: it's about planetcrap. it's not spam.
<dolo> ack.
<dolo> no wonder planetcrap is closing...
<Gabe> Oh, it is about the spam.
<JJZ> I've always felt it's "doofus".
<dolo> what spam?
<dolo> i sent a few million bcc emails about an interview with MORN, of
  planetcrap. It's called promotion.
<Gabe> We knew about our site, doofus.
<dolo> How do you think I told everyone about the Kevin Cloud interview?
<dolo> Same way.
<dolo> Email.
<Gabe> Spam.
<dolo> emailed the news sites.
*** Gabe sets mode: +b *!*@Kingston-ppp128724.sympatico.ca
*** dolo has quit IRC (Quit: )
<JJZ> Oh, that seems overly harsh.
<Gabe> Bah
*** Gabe sets mode: -b *!*@Kingston-ppp128724.sympatico.ca
<JJZ> Just the banning.
*** SteveD has joined #planetcrap
<JJZ> The rest I'm content with.
*** SteveD has left #planetcrap

The pink team returns fire:
(reprinted here so you don't actually have to visit his site)

Planetcrap IRC losers decided to attack us for trying to spread the word about Morn's attack on me in ICQ. I have a feeling that the blood being drawn goes a little deeper than Dteam. I think it's a handful of people who hate GSI and they are taking it out on us. Yes, I emailed people who frequent the PlanetCrap site -- if you posted something there you certainly might have received an email from us. If you don't want any more, hey don't worry we won't be covering any more Planet Crap news. The email was directed at specific individuals who would be interested in reading an interview about Planet Crap closing. They call it spam, but isn't spam that substance you get in the inbox from Mexico, Portugal and China? Buy this product! Buy that product. Send money... Well nothing said in my email was about that at all. It was a link to an article about PlanetCrap closing down. Well I guess this is the Christening of the Dteam site... to be in our first fight! Kewl. Can't wait to see how many rounds this will go. I have to warn you, PlanetCrap, I have some money ready to buy your URL when you go defunct.

On the bright side, its not your usual spam. On the not-so-bright side, its still spam.

Another negative is that it has an anti-Morn slant. Even though its just a chat log, it was still sent out as "Hey, I got dirt on Morn, wanna read?"

You mean dolomite@planetquake.com ?  I agree.  It's stupid how dolomite@planetquake.com types out his name in an attempt to prevent spam and then spams others.

Now, are you my friend, or my enemy?

First, you post an ICQ log without asking Morns permission.  

Then, you spam everyone here, which is akin to walking into a prison wearing a "Fuck Me" sign on the back of your pants.

Then, you make a threat ...
I have to warn you, PlanetCrap, I have some money ready to buy your URL when you go defunct.

Yeah ... we're friends.
