So, I was eating my breakfast Sunday morning! I started with “so” on purpose because everyone starts sentences with “so” these days, and I want to appear contemporary, init. I’m loving this.
So, I was eating my breakfast Sunday morning catching up with the latest news from the papers that still let you read their old nonsense for free, I mean, come on Murdoch, do you really think I’m going to subscribe and pay good money to read your propaganda rag, ROFL. “Oh”, I suddenly thought, I wonder what old Spiv is up to, so I grudgingly went over to his site to see if baldy was still online and fuck me, he was. That’s three days without a break, things are looking up. I only cuss on here generally when I’m thinking about Spivey, I’ve no idea why.
Well I couldn’t believe what I was reading, some naughty people over on Nutter Ickes forum have been having a go at my mate Chris, and he’s not happy.
I’m not going to go into the in’s and out of it here, but if you want to have a look, go here. However, it did make me waste an hour of my precious time this morning because like an naive gullible fool that I am, I clicked on the link to see what was being said. Thanks Chris, that’s an hour of my life gone forever, and at my age, they are all too precious.
I’m probably going to upset a lot of people here, but I don’t like forums. Within the membership there are a small a group of people who hide behind stupid id’s or whatever you call them, that they spent hours dreaming up, things like “Satan’s Sister”. Their goal seems to be to post as much as possible to get the “senior member” badge. Here’s an example:
“Cool, I think you can find things out there in others as it happened to me. I say dont wear the mask and let them try bully you and see how foolish they end up looking, you have the upper hand your smarter than them, youve read icke ”
OK, fair enough, a few errors, dont should be don’t, youve should be you’ve, and of course the classic your when it should be you’re. But the reply made to crease up:
“No i have never read anything by him, i will never be anyones sheep, i just live what i write about.” This is on David Ickes own forum for fuck sake. (sorry Chris)
Do you remember the 1980’s. Do you remember CB radio’s. “Breaker Breaker, 10/4 good buddy, catch you on the flip flop” The CB FM band (as opposed to the far better AM and SSB), was populated mainly by a group of lonely sad people chatting to truckers, or worse each other from the comfort of their armchairs. They would spend hours talking inane twaddle usually centered around what rig they had, or “brb” I’m going to make a cuppa. Well I am convinced the same people now get their daily fix of social interaction on forums, or Facebook/Twitter, or all three. I wonder how much my shares are worth now.
Back to what was being said about Spivey, this one is great.:
Spivey just got to many facts Wrong in his rants ……
and I am getting sick of rants about the “Bad Guys “…now I want solutions not complaints ….we know the shit in every headline is a lie …
Solutions please not how helpless we are against them …..
Just about sums it up, sit back and let someone else sort things out! Here’s an idea, why not start you own truth-seeking blog, do the work yourself and stop criticising others. If it’s good enough, people will read it, if it’s a load of old bollocks like what I write, then they won’t. (Bring me sunshine)
To be honest, the general tone of the thread was appalling. Some of the named members have retracted what they said, but the idea that Spivey is on a money making mission with his site is hilarious. As for feeling for anyone who donated, forget it. They did it from the heart, for something they all personally believe in. Am I stupid enough to be conned by his alleged money making scam, well that’s between me and my Paypal account, although Chris would never have known if I had, because my Paypal account gives no clue to who made the donation.
Of course, the other reason people post on forums like Nutters is to drive traffic to their own blogs, it also helps your Google ratings, which strangely “ping backs” from WordPress don’t.
I really believe that if you have something to say, don’t hide in the shadowy corners of forums, start-up a free blog on WordPress or Blogger (other blogging sites are available, terms and conditions apply, your home may be at risk if you spend too much time blogging) and put your own neck on the line.
Which gets me onto why we run “Alternative-News-Network.net”. See what I did there, added a link which all helps my Google visibility. In the old “PieReport” days we tested an idea of bringing together feeds from various truth-seeking sites. It became popular, so we set it up as a stand alone site. It’s visited by enough people to make it worth doing, not massive figures, last month it had 510,221 hits, so there’s a long way to go, but it’s better than doing nothing. Are all of the sites “the real deal”, well sort of. I did remove a few that made me uneasy and there are still a couple who I leave on there to see how big a hole they can dig, plus who am I to judge, that’s the job of the reader. ANN certainly doesn’t make money, but it’s just little old me, doing my little old bit. To be honest, keeping it online takes up most of my spare time, but I believe it does, however small, a valuable job.
Why do we promote Alex Jones and David Icke so much, that’s easy, although I refer to Icke as Nutter, I have followed him since the early 1990’s, read his books, and believe him to be 100% genuine. As for Jones, I listen to him daily, and don’t buy into the mis-info theories. I do also take what he says with a big pinch of salt, but generally find him a good listen. I may be wrong, but hey, does it matter? I’d rather promote Jones than Morgan.
As a side issue, nice to see TPV is being knocked before it even launches. Yes I agree about Peter Tatchell, he makes my skin creep as well, but a free, truth-seeking media outlet should air all views. Once you start censoring who appears and who doesn’t, you’re back to controlled media.
Back to my Corn Flakes, do they taste a bit soft to you?
