Slashdot's Disagree Mail

samzenpus posted more than 5 years ago | from the they-keep-coming dept.

It's funny.  Laugh. 135

This installment of Disagree Mail highlights a man's concern about illegal cloning in the Hollywood community, a guy who is sick of US imperialism and his low karma, and an example of the kind of people you don't want as roommates in college. Read below to find out just how crazy, angry and irresponsible it gets.

I remember watching Scarlett Johansson's opening scene in "Lost in Translation" and thinking that the whole movies should be about laying around in t-shirts and panties. I had no idea that Scarlett's beauty was enough to drive someone insane.

"Hello dear Ladies and Gentlemen! I would like inform you that Scarlett Johansson (actress) actually is a clone from original person Scarlett Galabekian last name, who has nothing with acting career. That clone was created illegally by using stolen biological material. Original person is very nice (not d**n sexy),most important - CHRISTIAN young lady! I'll tell you more,those clones (it's not only one) made in GERMANY - world leader manufacturer of humans clones, it is in Ludwigshafen am Rhein, Rhineland-Palatinate, Mr. Helmut Kohl home town. You can not even imaging the scale of the cloning activity. But warning! Helmut Kohl clone staff strictly controlling all their clones (at least they trying) spreading around the world, they are very accurate with that, some of them are still NAZI type disciplined and mind controlled clones, so be careful get close with clones you will be controlled as well. Original person is not happy with those movies, images, video, rumors and etc. spreading on media in that way it would be really nice if we all will try slow down that ''actress'' career development, original Scarlett will really appreciated that. Please remember that original Scarlett's family did not authorize any activity with stolen biological materials, no matter what form it was created in it was stolen and it is stolen. It all need to be delivered to authorized personals control in Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. Original Scarlett never was engaged, by the way! Her close friend Serge G. P.S. CONTROLLING ACTIVITY OF ANY CLONES IS US MILITARY OPERATION. H.R. 534, the Human Cloning Prohibition Act of 2003, was introduced to the U.S. House of Representatives on February 5, 2003. After discussion, it was passed on February 27 by a vote of 241-155. It now moves on to the Senate for consideration. This bill makes it unlawful for any person or entity to perform or participate in human cloning, or to ship or receive embryos produced by human cloning. The penalties are imprisonment of up to 10 years and fines of $1 million or more. These now join other nations as diverse as Norway, Australia, and Germany, which had already added cloning for any purpose to their criminal code. And in Germany where it carries a penalty of five years imprisonment they know a thing or two about unethical science."

I enjoy it when people include real world problems with their rants, like somehow connecting our karma system with geopolitical politics makes their mail more than just a tantrum.

A simple reply: "Go sell crazy someplace else. We're full up here." Ages ago, while selling computers at $BIGCOMPSTORE, I had a guy come in who was convinced that the people at Netscape were spying on him (this was back about '99). He insisted that he needed a new computer, and wanted a Mac because they don't have the same "intrusion issues Windows computers have." He buys one... Has us remove the modem and network port. Goes home. Three days later, he's back in and "this computer is infected too!" He was insistent that the fiends at Netscape had used a satellite to beam in programs to spy on him via IrDA. We politely took the computer back, then refused to sell him another, as this was the 5th one in a month he'd bought then returned, and the manager suggested he seek medical attention. The world is just chock full of crazy. Of course, that just means they fit in at /.

Tricky to say. One thing I've noticed about the past few of these is that these are all taken from before they started doing Disagree Mail. So they might have a massive backlog to go through and figure the corporate overlords who deemed this necessary will get sick of it before they run out, meaning they won't need to loop back like you described.

Yes, I'm operating under the belief that this was forced on Slashdot by their corporate overlords and isn't entirely their fault. So?

Gizzmonic (412910) | more than 5 years ago | (#26006527)

An old friend of mine used to work at a newspaper, and he would receive a bunch of email from a crazy woman who was convinced she could influence George W. Bush and Vladimir Putin through her TV. She also wrote about how local leaders were all part of a conspiracy.

In addition to being crazy, she was also rock stupid. Putin took a trip to Georgia (long before the war of this year) and she was wondering what he was doing down South.

Those were pretty good laughs. She also expected him to get her letters about local conspiracies published, which would have been tough to do seeing as he was the web programmer, not the editor in chief.

2) ask her if you can sleep with her sister.

Since when is slashdot trying to compete with crapbook and shitspace? Get this crap off the RSS please!

Jizz shouldn't be a problem (1)

Puls4r (724907) | more than 5 years ago | (#26006879)

After all, most of the folks that read this site have been storing it for years... and years... and years... and years...

Jizz (1, Informative)

Anonymous Coward | more than 5 years ago | (#26006949)

I store my jizz in a Jergen's Hand Lotion bottle, which I place in the women's bathroom when it gets full.

My eyes! (1)

Farlan (1145095) | more than 5 years ago | (#26007085)

This whole /. disagree mail segment seems to have outlived its hype. On a side note, the text on that background really hurt my eyes after reading... Anyone volunteer to write a /. an email about it? It would probably be featured here on the next one.

Are caturday updates next? (0, Flamebait)

LiquidDeath (771564) | more than 5 years ago | (#26007105)

/. idle is the new 4chan ?? Does the world need another 4chan? Idle articles are pure crap, keep idle off the main page.

Oh Come on you nancys... (1)

ethicalBob (1023525) | more than 5 years ago | (#26007123)

Reading Serges rants is 10 times more interesting than the majority of the hubris-filled replies of most of our /. brethren.

Flickfilosopher comment thread on this is great [flickfilosopher.com] .. it seems that Serge gets around, and has a lot of time on his hands...

and i didn't realize that was possible.
thank you for the enlightenment.

Mean! (1)

desinc (788828) | more than 5 years ago | (#26007167)

Damn, you guys are ruthless about bashing the admins.

This is slashdot, not the comment section for youtube.

Still, I keep reading disagree mail hoping that they'll get better... they haven't yet. (Except for shampoo, shampoo is hilarious - albeit I wouldn't categorize his writing as 'disagree mail').

Instead of complaining about Idle... (2, Informative)

BaronHethorSamedi (970820) | more than 5 years ago | (#26007363)

Set your preferences to filter it.

If enough people do that, maybe it will go away.

Re:Instead of complaining about Idle... (1)

HeronBlademaster (1079477) | more than 5 years ago | (#26007557)

That would only work if the admins bother to check how many people have the section filtered.

I should have listened... (1)

internerdj (1319281) | more than 5 years ago | (#26007387)

The top of the page said: "Idle.slashdot.org is a total waste of your time. Never go there."

Idle solution (1, Informative)

Anonymous Coward | more than 5 years ago | (#26007499)

Step one:

AdBlock Plus: Block http://idle.slashdot.org/* [slashdot.org]

Step two:

Hosts file:
127.0.0.1 idle.slashdot.org

Step three: there is no step three

Schizophrenia (3, Insightful)

FreekyGeek (19819) | more than 5 years ago | (#26007545)

The reason the nutty ones aren't funny to me is because I know exactly where they come from: Schizophrenics. And I don't mean the pop-psychology conception of schizophrenia as somehow being equivalent to "multiple personalities", I mean people with the actual disorder of schizophrenia, as in "A Beautiful Mind", not "Sybil". Paranoia and conspiracy theories are very common in schizophrenics, as are long rambling writings that are grammatically correct but nearly incomprehensible. If you want to see all kinds of the stuff, try working in a congressional office. They get deluged with the stuff.

It's funny the first few times, but gets old very fast when you start to see how sick these poor people really are. They literally can't help themselves, their brains send them bad information.

Re:Schizophrenia (1)

MobyDisk (75490) | more than 5 years ago | (#26008131)

That's a good theory. But I propose an alternative: The first post looks like it was created by a Markov Generator [wikipedia.org] . Like somebody was playing with a freely downloadable one, and pasted in some random newspaper page that had stuff about an actress and stuff about cloning.

Re:Schizophrenia (1)

drinkypoo (153816) | more than 5 years ago | (#26008781)

Honestly, I think schizophrenia is not really one of those either-or things, I think most everyone is a little bit schizophrenic, the degree to which we tend to dis-integrate our personal and work lives for example, it's just not healthy/normal. We cease to be ourselves in such situations...

Forget alarm clocks, scheduled printing is where (1)

piltdownman84 (853358) | more than 5 years ago | (#26007725)

I remember when I was in residence. The best prank was to schedule really odd print jobs in the middle of the night. Extra funny when it was on people that had no clue how to check if another half dozen messages were going to come out all night

Almost as good as changing their hosts file so hotmail, the school website, and all major news sites went to porn sites. Although I do feel bad in hindsight for that girl that got labeled as a lesbian because of that.

I want to change my nickname now... (1)

jason.sweet (1272826) | more than 5 years ago | (#26007797)

But I can't decide if it should be brad_pitt_the_nice_but_not_damn_sexy_non_clone or wet_frilly_knickers_outlook.

Oh Dear (1)

Dan Parker (966952) | more than 5 years ago | (#26007827)

Oh Dear. I see you're *still* having trouble putting 'text' on a 'web-site'. I know it's hard. Really hard. Let's go shopping!

Jizz puck? (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 5 years ago | (#26007987)

A Jizz puck coupled with a beating with a Cincinnati Hot Pocket should be just what the doctor ordered...

I Love Spam (1)

Graphic Twist (1374895) | more than 5 years ago | (#26008293)

I've seen that Scarlette/Cloning rant somewhere before...
maybe here [inquisitr.com]
and here [zimbio.com]
among the numerous other places. Thanks for posting your spam.

I Googled Scarlett Galabekian (2, Insightful)

thered2001 (1257950) | more than 5 years ago | (#26008927)

As any worthwhile conspiracy theory should be! The only problem here is this one isn't good.
