Slashdot's Disagree Mail

samzenpus posted about 6 years ago | from the good-things-come-in-small-packages dept.

It's funny.  Laugh. 100

Ernest Hemingway's micro-story, "For sale: baby shoes, never worn," is one of my favorite examples of how less is sometimes more. Sometimes a few sentences say it all; you don't always need a hundred pages to convey an idea. Most of the mail I get is brief and to the point. Others are just brief. To be honest, I appreciate the short, crazy email more than the long rants, and they can be just as funny. Read below for this week's mail snippets.

The less we talk about this first guy, the better. Let's just hope that he found love and a treadmill someplace.

On Mon Aug 25, 2003 ******** wrote:
"Hello, I am a 'generously proportioned' male (375 pounds) with a less than generous penile length (4 inches erect). I seek a vendor of quality inflatable sheep who can give away free samples as I am unemployed. Best regards."

I'm not really sure what this message means. I didn't get the cryptic first mail that he talks about, but it sounds important.

On Sat, 20 Aug 2005 ******* wrote:
"Be well advised that my last email contains information about the persons that this script was, in fact, not written for. this section contains authorizations as to ensure that authorizations would work. Also be advised that the infromation therein is no longer valid."

The last two are both from people who obviously used the wrong address. I can assure you that I never accused the second guy of any sexual impropriety.

You can turn it off the front page, but NOT off the RSS feed. So it's still possible to be inflicted by the Idle crap by accident.

Taco, if you MUST persist with Idle (in the face of mostly displeasure) can you not have it as a totally separate site? It's only fair isn't it? Those who don't want this crap need never see it, and the cast-offs from Digg can go to the new Idle site any time they want. Is this not fair?

I agree man.  These arent even half funny anymore.  Also, I get the impression that more people write bullshit stories to slashdot now than ever... hey perhaps we'll make it to the disagree mail!  It all becomes a bit of a pathetic show at this point.

Disagree mail is fun when you keep one message a week... That one message that almost made you piss your pants laughing... and then pick the 10 best of those for an annual publication... so you'll have some quality entertainment.  You might consider offering the weekly picks in a gzip.  But surely the rest of them is /dev/null fodder.

This time's disagree mail is just crap.  Wtf do we care about some guy wanting inflatable sheep.  Or is it just me getting old that i can't giggle anymore about a fat guy and an inflatable sheep.  We also *know* there's some dumb stupid users out there.  Wtf do we care about some nitwit asking for a road atlas at a slashdot address??

HEY CMDRTACO FSCKS INFLATABLE SHEEP and POORS HOT GRITS down a CHILD PORNOGRAPHER'S pants PLEASE SEND ME ATLAS!

Surely this comment will be linked from the front page now.

Re:Please, read what you write before you post it (4, Insightful)

Luyseyal (3154) | about 6 years ago | (#25415417)

I tried Digg for awhile, but the comments system is crap. I have never peaked at Slashcode, but IMNSHO, the Slashdot comments system is much better. I like it better than Fark and K5, too, though K5 is a close second.

My other big complaint about Digg is I hate all the pap that's always on the front page. At least with Fark, you're GOING for the funny. I don't visit Slashdot for funny. I visit it for interesting tech and science news stories that have been culled down from a great many. I also visit it because real scientists post things on Slashdot.

I can find more specialized content in a variety of blogs, but /. has a mix of things that I am interested in, with a great comments system, and that's why I come back.

Seriously, though, idle IS pants.

Peak? You think Slashcode is the peak? The peak of what? The peak of programming excellence?

Methinks you meant "peeked". Sorry for the spelling flame, can't help it...

Re:Please, read what you write before you post it (1)

Luyseyal (3154) | about 6 years ago | (#25417883)

Your correction is incorrect because you are alleging I used the wrong word, which is false. The problem is I misspelled the correct word. I suggest brushing up on your usage rules. ;)

The Firefox spellchecker doesn't fix all, does it? Peek/peak is not a distinction I am accustomed to making -- certainly not one of my spelling/grammar pet peeves -- despite being a decent speller for the most part. I can't even remember the last time I typed either one... checking my email, it looks like Jan 23, 2008 was the last time I wrote either peek or peak (it was peek) and now I remember that that was an email my wife and I were working on together to send to an important recipient and she had changed the spelling to be correct. She's an English major.

Idle, where you make something out of nothing.

Digg is now just another vehicle for SEO spammers. Lots of noise, not so much signal. A lot of really bad misinformation makes the front page. Apparently a democratic system of information dissemination that receives no vetting or fact checking and receives the attention of battalions of sockpuppet armies doesn't produce the highest quality stories.

My Theory (4, Interesting)

scorp1us (235526) | about 6 years ago | (#25415245)

What spammers did was to use a slashdot email address as a destination. The idea is that a random, unsolicited yet strange email would solicit a reply, at which point you now have a validated email address to sell. Each message played to a particular emotion in hope to get a reply.

Each tactic:
Humility
Severity
Compassion
Offensive

While someone might not reply to offensive emails, that psyce might reply to calls for compassion. Or vice-versa.

This is actually good (1)

Anonymous Coward | about 6 years ago | (#25415293)

Knowing that any letters may be posted publicly, even stupid ones, is a deterrent to sending stupid emails. I have seen it work for a political site I was running in 2002. We had abusive, targeted malware, and/or threatening emails coming in regularly until I started posting them, including full headers & reverse DNS info in the case of the malware.

How exactly has slashdot [b]made[/b] you read anything? Did Taco or ScuttleMonkey come to your house and pull a gun out and force you read this article?

Well, I guess this answers the question, " Do inadequate fat men dream of inflatable sheep?"

How can he be sure?

Anyways...

Don't you have to touch the circle before you go off on a tangent?

These aren't as funny as someone thinks they are.

Good. Now I can finally rest.

Haters (0)

Anonymous Coward | about 6 years ago | (#25415585)

So I have this philosophy...

I keep a few Demotivators posters up on my office wall. "Motivation, Inspiration, Mistakes, and Consulting". As soon as the place I'm working at stops seeing them as funny and they become "a symbol that I am a bad employees with a poor disposition" then its time to move on as that company is not a place I wish to work for any more.

What does that have to do with this? The haters above, making comments about the professional level of this website and its image, and how dare they take make light of themselves... you guys are falling right into that category. Seriously, lighten the fuck up!

If you heads are so crammed up your asses that you cannot enjoy a humorous post once a week and consider it a slander on the name of Slashdot... then seriously.. there is no help for you. Please walk away from the computer and leave the rest of us to have our laughs and then go back to work. You people REALLY need to pull the stick out of your ass.

ad0n (1171681) | about 6 years ago | (#25415809)

these posts were quite humorous, but the last few have been sub-par at best! perhaps this should be a monthly feature when the quality warrants it !

Bill, Shooter of Bul (629286) | about 6 years ago | (#25415931)

I agree, the lunatics aren't amusing enough. Its time to resort to shadier methods to keep quality high. Feel free to contact me directly samzenpus to discuss your alternative options to this grog. On the positive side, I think this weekly feature has convinced me that not every insane person is funny or interesting. They are just as boring as regular people.

This is becoming pointless (2, Interesting)

rickb928 (945187) | about 6 years ago | (#25415953)

These look more like misaddressed emails. Not so entertaining. And not very unique. Maybe it's time to go biweekly with disagree mail???

Re:This is becoming pointless (1)

mqduck (232646) | about 6 years ago | (#25422301)

It was always pointless. Just chill dude and stop taking it so seriously.

Get this shit off of slashdot.
It belongs on Digg and other retarded aggregators.

If you really hate idle that much, it takes less time to disable it from showing up on your front page than it does to tag all the stories with "idleispants" etc
