Stuart in particular is really getting on my nerves.
It's got to the point where I'm actually more annoyed by the litany of witless moaning about those adverts.
Only about 5 times a day for the past 3 weeks.
MAN MARRIES A FUCKING GOAT
people have been saying for ages that i should become a teacher, so after working for four years as a bouncer i blah blah!! i've heard it so many times!
no-one else is.
now fuck off home.
i'm more annoyed about the primavera adverts. ARE YOU EATING A BAGEL?
I am at home. happier?
that's a load off my mind!
that's your mind empty now
three(?) years and you still can't use the boards. amazing.
and i was at the bottom of the page when i decided to reply so scrolled up quickly, hitting the wrong 'klaire' post.
we've come a long way baby.
you're never going to leave me, right?
don't you worry.
I wanted to see what the fuss was about - but there's nothing there!
I think this is all an in-joke by those trying to confuse the adblockers amongst us.
ok ok I'll get adblock. sheesh so much jip and I can't type in a hurry it seems.
which blocks adverts, it's truly great
it's great to have you back. truly.
I was just pre-emptively filling in all the usual replies to these threads
they are evil
looks like he is gonna give that girl on the front row a back handed slap
... DiS may be being sued because of the threads about those ads, so it's probably best we all just let it drop now, no?
link! that's amazing. like bad amazing. well, that depends actually. which of the following are getting sued?
2. sean adams personally
3. mick hucknall
ps. he'll probs get rid of the social board soon anyway. like the rumours board :(
and not like the olden days :(
but factually i reckon because it gives dis a bad name. everyone who isn't on dis hate dis and as sean said himself in that thread, some bands refused to do stuff with dis cos there were mean threads about them in the community.
i personally hope they get rid of the social board, maybe then i'll do some work and stop getting angry at wankers like alex-in-ciderland and suchlike.
but there were definitely less wankers. more fun! basically nostalgia is really cool and makes me look really cool. i also smoke cigarettes sometimes. do you think i'm cool?
yes, though XD
But, basically, someone made the point that, if Sean keeps deleting threads consisting of people complaining about GP, then he should also get rid of the threads complaining about the teacher ads (not quite sure what the actual point was, but that was the gist). Sean replied stating that "we" are probably going to get sued, so I'm presuming it's DiS as a whole. He didn't specify, though.
The people who made the adverts are suing the site they paid to put them on because people aren't clicking on them but actively blocking them out?
That's pretty fucked up.
... that appear to be the problem. Also, Sean didn't specify whether the advert people or the actual teachers themselves are suing, so again, I can't state either way.
It's not the fault of the website nobody likes the adverts, it's the advert makers for making something so damn intrusive and unwanted in the first place. That's like sueing a billboard company after you rent their space out and people start vomiting in front of the image in disgust.
Well, you get what I mean.
and bad about what we have done
they should take that as free market research then.
those are real teachers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11111
It's been deleted (See above^)
the thread about the George Pringle thread being deleted was also deleted? Right.
both crisps and affordable food?
knew what this thread was referring to until one just came on, over my music.
"hello im blah blah and im a science teacher"
So what?! i hate you!
no way could they sue DiS for people complaining about the ads
but I will say again: look at the eyes. They don't have the hollow glazed look of people who've been marking coursework 'til 2am with only a cat and a bottle (or 2) of red for company = not real teachers.
Or those ads were made in August.
Seriously though... teaching is the best fucking job in the world. I used to work in an office and I wanted to die - made me question the whole point of my existence. I actually think the idea of getting the DiS demographic (young, intelligent, bit alternative) into teaching is a fantastic idea. We need more teachers who have a favourite Fugazi album.
lad who says hes a maths teacher looks about 16.
Get a real teacher to tell it as indeed it is.
With a kicking soundtrack obviously.
kids trying to kill each other in the background. HELL YEAH. i have mates who are teachers and this is all they talk about.
I use Merzbow played through the IWB speakers as a discipline tool.
