Myspace is horrible (63)

It combines the worst of embed-happy geocities pages with the blog potential for easy to make unreadable design and layouts.

I HATE myspace. It has a HORRIBLE layout, and people make it worse by throwing in repeating background images, bright text I can't read, and pictures that stretch the page. Its building for complete newbies to the internet (I suspect that they're also blind, which is why they haven't noticed how horrid their page looks). They must make it as flashy as possible, and add background music that will probably crash my browser.

I must admit, everytime I meet someone who is an active myspace user, I lose a little (read: a lot) of respect for them. Yes, they drop to the "I'm-a-desperate-teeny-bopper-attention-whore" category, and get added to my 'next to kill' list.

>>16 says everything. I actually have a lot of RL friends who are on myspace. Really don't know why or how the fuck they do it, plus they force me to make an account and visit their puny shitty pages.

Best Yoshinoya Rant edit ever.

I hate myspace for all the reasons listed so far, but other people are pressuring me to get on there too. These kind of things don't bother my friends as the aren't uber nerd net lurkers like me. Is there a way to join myspace and still stay true to who I am? I have this terrible feeling that after registering I'll also become some idiot emo kid crying every night into my blog that no one comments on my blog.

What, exactly, is it that makes you people so enraged that some site exists somewhere? Is it really that hard to just not go there, that you need to rave and rage about it?

22 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2006-06-07 23:14 ID:Epac7tnP

When it comes to myspace, yes, it is really hard to just not go there. All of my friends are registered there, and my sister is practically addicted to it. For as much time as they spend there you would think that they would eventually catch on to the fact that none of them know how to design a webpage worth looking at and move on, but instead the site just continues to grow and grow.

For sites other than myspace >>21 has the right idea, you can usually just ignore it and go on with your life. But Myspace has great influence in whats going on in real life too, so sadly that option isn't open.

23 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2006-06-08 11:46 ID:Heaven

So who rememberes when the "space" in "myspace" meant "storage space", and myspace was the place you got your warez?

24 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2006-06-09 15:52 ID:3crOfbhM

I never understand what was so bad about Yoshinoya. I eat there almost every day for lunch during work. And it only costs like 5 bucks.

25 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2006-06-12 00:41 ID:Heaven

I'll bet >>24 just orders today's special.

26 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2006-06-17 12:52 ID:2VYwsumh

I went to myspace once, there was this emo kid that made his profile page very dark with black gothic stuff as the background....but he also set the text on black which makes his page unreadable. Nice.

27 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2006-06-18 02:25 ID:KkutqUS/

Of course. He wants to share his sorrows with the world but he doesn't want you to actually be able to read any of it. You just wouldn't understand.

28 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2006-06-18 04:27 ID:2VYwsumh

A typical emo 'thing', really...

29 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2006-06-23 03:12 ID:18gjLaVK

The page is black. Much like his SOUUUUUUUUUUUL~

30 Name: giz!5s6eFGE9Lo : 2006-06-23 04:59 ID:zK+iB57r

all my friends, even my best friend who basically never uses the internet any more (at least before this) use or whatever.
i really don't see the difference. sure it's ''secure'' and all but it's just a sheltered myspace, no?

31 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2006-06-23 07:29 ID:am8UeJJ+

They all have their respective groups.

MYSPACE = Emo / Indie
FACEPARTY = Chav / Whore

32 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2006-06-23 09:25 ID:R7Bb9Lg2

*CHAN = Weeaboo

33 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2006-06-24 00:38 ID:q677LRhT

LIVEJOURNAL = real people on internets. and dramawhores too.

34 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2006-06-24 02:25 ID:pzfAa8W7

Livejournal users are not real people.

35 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2006-06-24 05:10 ID:Heaven

They are vampires.

36 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2006-06-26 18:31 ID:jftK8Yh3

I would take a Livejournal user over the emo losers over at MySpace and Xanga anyday.

MySpace is the nasty littered polluted trailer park beside the on-ramp to the Information Superhighway.

I looked around on it briefly a couple of times. All I saw was illiterate 13-year-old girls, creepy emo kids, and truly disgusting tattooed trailer trash housewives. If you saw these people on the street, you'd think to yourself, "hmm, the circus must be in town."

And the Web design is invariably ghastly. Unreadable text over contrasty busy background images (admittedly, in every case this turned out to be a mercy in disguise), pages with five different stupid-ass music videos embedded in them that would be stupid and unwatchable even if all five didn't play simultaneously, pages laid out all as one long page about twenty screens tall.

It's like the pages at WebTV a few years back, but more bandwidth-intensive (just TRY looking at one of these pages over dialup, I DARE you). MySpace is a crime against the Web.

One time, I was in a bathroom stall, and a couple of girls walked in. One of them I knew to be a brat, and both of them were eleven or twelve, and were talking about a joke they heard on Myspace. I decided to avoid said brat, and I wanted to hear the joke, so I stayed inside the stall and spyed on them.

I forget most of the joke, but it had to do with two people (one a 21-year-old, but I forget how old the other one was in the joke) making a "mayonnaise sandwich" on the top bunk of a bunk bed and a 12-year-old on the bottom bunk getting confused. In other words, it was a stupid 'dirty' joke that made little sense to me.

Then the girls caught me. I expected the bratty one to threaten me or something and thne run ou and tell someone that I kicked her or something, but she didn't. I guess I scared her by sort of spying on her while she was telling her joke to her friend.

I also agree that Myspace is mostly ugly, from what I've seen. Small text on gaudy backgrounds that you'll usually need to highlight to read it. It's overrated, too.

myspace is also horribly slow because it uses coldfusion.

> ColdFusion is slow. Because ColdFusion is another layer of abstraction above a J2EE server, ColdFusion execution times can be slower than competing languages. Historically, the initial loading of a ColdFusion page had been slower than many competing scripting languages, but since ColdFusion 6.1, pages are directly compiled into native Java class files.

in spite of the ENTERPRISE J2EE crap, it still DOESN'T SCALE.

myspace has Tila Tequila, that's enough for me :P

41 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2006-08-03 13:50 ID:AHYoMFQo

Tom is the devil.

42 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2006-08-06 15:18 ID:Heaven

myspace is horribly slow because it's gay. sage.

43 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2006-08-08 07:42 ID:52loqVpF

it servers the same purpose as gaiaonline and livejournal. basically like ethnic cleansing for the internet minus the ethnic part.

44 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2006-08-08 07:53 ID:W1E2UBwc

Myspace is the back of my existence. i don't know about anyone else, but when i turn on the television and see sucky movies and THEN at the end instead of showing a real site to promote their horrible movie, they list a myspace link, it KILLS ME. don't tell me i'm alone on this one.

45 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2006-08-08 12:06 ID:zblOca9g

I have to say i actually really like myspace. I mean i used to have very similar opinions to all of the above, and im probably confirming your worst fears by saying that once i signed up and made my own i was hooked. Anyway, i do really find it useful for staying in touch with people who i only meet for a short period, or who i have otherwise no point of contact with. Its also a handy little ego boost when i feel like one. I dont really disagree with anything you guys have said (that Tom is the devil there is no doubt) However, im someone who tries to look on the bright side, and i think that for all the scum on there, there is also lots of very nice friendly people and honestly talented musicians... its just a matter of finding them. Its just like real life, of course most people are idiots or worse, but that doesnt mean you should condem us all.

46 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2006-08-13 15:45 ID:OGDL0jGf

I fucking HATE that.
That's the problem with a lot of sites, they have good ideas and are usually made reasonably well, but the majority of the people who use it are scum.

Myspace isn't made reasonably well, though, in my opinion.

47 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2006-08-16 07:14 ID:AJYyK5Bt

Seriously, what the fuck? Some dumbass marketing executive thought it'd be hip to embed their advertisements in HIP NEW SOCIAL NETWORKS or something and it pisses everyone off.

48 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2006-08-16 08:58 ID:R7Bb9Lg2

did anyone hear about the 3 guys who met a underage girl over myspace and raped her?

oh wait, there's been tens of incidents like that

49 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2006-08-17 02:38 ID:Heaven

I like Facebook because you can't fuck upH^ customize your profile's stylesheet.

50 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2006-08-26 04:54 ID:Heaven


myspace is owned by newscorp, the same mob that owns fox studios and so forth. they bought out the parent company for about US$580m in november last year.

did you hear that, kids? myspace isn't as hip and alternative as you thought.

51 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2006-08-31 02:19 ID:Heaven

facebook is to gmail as myspace is to yahoo

oh and sage

52 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2006-09-04 00:27 ID:DY5a1rHL

I used to have the same views as a lot of you...I still think Toms the devil, or at least the creation of said overlord. However I was still pressured into creating a 'profile' by some of my friends.

For a while everything was ok with the world, my friends sent me random comments wich were occasionally ammusing.

However than things started going to hell, bands started to infect the place and you can't log on anymore without seeing the all familiar sign saying 46 friend request, all of which are from bands you have never, and will never hear of again.

To add to all of this the server is over-populated meaning you have to try at least 3 times to login if not more.

Sure the random comments are still fun but I still stand by my old saying: 'you either love myspace or you hate it' And recently I've begun to hate it with a passion!

53 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2006-09-26 09:24 ID:IOuB+lZJ

myspace can suk it

54 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2006-09-27 16:37 ID:CJdY2Z84

Did you mean bane?

55 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2006-10-01 15:04 ID:1VG8IC4y

Tru dat. I bet most of the people who made their profiles all customized and junk don't even think if the page is compatible with other browsers, plug-ins and shit. I saw someones page embedded with 20 fucking youtube videos, a dozen high-res pics and a myspace "music" player. Dumb bastard must think every PC out there comes with his temp cache.

56 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2006-10-04 16:53 ID:gJpRd0WC

I'm surprised that barely anyone has pointed out that most people on Myspace are dumbasses either way.

57 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2006-10-04 17:01 ID:Heaven

You guys missed out on the mini-raid yesterday.

58 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2009-07-24 14:19 ID:4VEYCS3I

Myspace is the worst thing in internet culture next to O'Rielly and the white man's news.

59 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2009-07-24 14:21 ID:4VEYCS3I

Most people on Myspace are dumbasses anyway. True, although, even if you WERE very smart AND on Myspace, some CEO would steal all of your jokes and content before the next day after you put it on your page. Myspace is AWEFUL and has no user friendly content except garbage. Garbage is the only user friendly content featured on Myspace.

60 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2009-07-24 14:32 ID:4VEYCS3I

Myspace has been reduced bugged out, viral nothing better than the latest upload from an 'All-American' Missouri shanty town on Youtube. completely useless unless you're someone's famous band pumping advertistements into the media conglomerate of lies and stolen material. Nothing on Myspace is original content except maybe a butterfly, a rainbow and maybe a song (if it dosn't sound already absolutely aweful.)

The uselessness of Myspace outweighs any benefit for anyone with a brain, unless you are the content-stealing know nothing governmental tycoon bent on world destruction - then you would just love all of Myspaces' features. You said it best when you said Myspace is horrible.

61 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2009-08-11 16:16 ID:c6in70dD

Myspace is still the best place to go to check out bands and such. but you don't even need an account for that, unless you want to contact them.

62 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2010-05-25 22:17 ID:QqO0Il5o


or look at their pictures

63 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2010-06-24 19:25 ID:Heaven

Even though Myspace is actually better than Facebook and Twitter.
