So we noticed.

Without getting too snarky on someone I don't know: From whence did he materialize? I've said it a few times before (including in that thread), I don't understand why people will barge into other people's streams and say bad things about their photos or style -- then come back to attack some more. This community is pretty frigging large; if you don't like someone's stuff then move along.

Per previous bad examples, I've put the character on block status to keep him from taking on my pictures. (Which is more "real", his blue walls or my fading advertisement walls?) Say what you will about how prejudicial/unfair that procedure is, and he seems to be more literate/less venomous than other characters who've exuded negativity, but if people won't curb themselves I may as well do something pre-emptive to prevent the negativity from hitting my stream.

I think he's just jealous that YOUR pictures of similar stuff as he shoots get comments... and his do not. ;-)

Am I a loser for hoping that one day Malingering captures the one person in Santa Monica that I hate wearing her horrible outfits so that I can be all passive-aggressive and enjoy poking fun at her wardrobe?

Probably. But I still hope.

I'm just waiting for the day *I* show up with some remarks about my hair. I need a haircut badly. Hey, I deserve some pointing and laughing at this point.

Ok, I'm sorry I can't give a thoroughly based retort to this dumbass, too busy trying to figure out why you call something a Pearson correlation on the one hand and say it does something and then have a Spearman's rho that works exactly the same and say it does something else...

But on a side note - does MNCN have an appreciation group? I think not. I hereby command all members of this group to go a-whoring Malingering love. Because it's good and it's addictive and just because.

Right, back to my exam prep.

I am now flooding MNCN's photos with my own comments, which are actually HIS comments, cut and pasted. I'm bored.

LOL. You evil fiend.

I feel like this is all my fault. I was the one who originally engaged the troll. It's just that this whole concept of "If I don't like it, no one should do it" really gets under my skin.

That said, from now on I will restrain myself. If you ignore the morons, they just go away. My sincere apologies for stirring up the crazy person.

Please return to your regularly scheduled viewing of giant plastic breasts, asswriting and assorted muffin top

It's not really anybody's fault. He's the kind of person who needs to tell other people what to do.

Based on his aggressive manner, I'd say he's more of the type that thinks this proves he's a Big Male, rather than the Nurturing To Death type of busybody (like me!).

Morons don't always go away, but ignoring them at least helps one's own mood and makes it seem like they've gone away. And, I figure I've given his photos enough hits, so I'm bored too.

At any rate, I get to feel guilty too! :-S :-)

(And good luck to Kittster!)

I'm having a good laugh at the clipped comments that have been pasted onto his photos... he's not connected to the fact that it's his own words he's seeing, muahahaha!!

This was fun for a while, but now it seems to have lost it's luster. For the peace of mind of all of us who find your photos humorous please just block the guy already.

Speaking of, don't these photos look familiar?

What the fuck?

I've seen elsewhere that this rayena (sp?) woman is doing stuff she shouldn't with pictures but this is weird.

There should be an entry criterion for flickr, aka, must have brains and be a decent human being. Would mess with their profits but it'd be a start...

I think the word is "hijacked" -- these photos are under someone else's profile but are definitely Malingering's, right down to our comments on them still intact.

I'm down with the crowd who says we just ignore the self rightous assholes who barge into the photostream. You gotta know that MNCN is just LOVING the attention he's getting. And arguing with him is like shouting at a brickwall.

I think it would be hilarious to see any photo stream with some troll adding unwanted comments, and everyone else just continues on as if they didn't exist. That seems to upset that type of person more than anything.

Just my 2 cents.

@TGS - Normally I'd agree, but sometimes the point needs to be made that folks that go LOOKING for stuff, FIND it, then WHINE about it should be summarily de-Flickr'd. I mean how hard is it to avoid stuff you don't like? I haven't had any problems yet. Sure I've come across some questionable stuff, but I just make sure I don't go back wherever I happened to see it.
And I DEFINITELY didn't like that crack about "older people" and how I must be a moron loser too because I believe in freedom of expression.
I do not suffer fools well. Not at all.
:-D

@Mal - she even hijacked my photos of Milo! He's just an innocent cat! Gee, isn't that copyright infringement? Not to mention low.

BOCTAOE: I agree. However, this community has defended itself enough times that i feel any new a-holes who don't take the time to read the threads M. has put links to on her profile (much less, even look at her profile) shouldn't be given the time of day.

That being said, i'm not gonna get on anyone's case for engaging any assholes, or defending the photostream and it's patrons. I just wanted to get my opinion out there, and i'm not even the first one to voice it.

@TGS - You make an excellent point. Sometimes I have a hard time just letting it go by when people like that start in. It's like a mosquito bite that's juuuuust out of reach. Need to learn to think about sandpaper at times like that.

So, who volunteers to photograph a pink water bottle with a tube connected to it, with a box of Summer's Eve nearby? Title the photo "my new clever friend".

See if he connects on the fact that he's being called a douchebag.
