    Obviously, there's plenty to be angry about. But am I the only one who thinks this is kind of pathetic?

    Yes. You are the only one. No go crawl in a hole and STFU. ;D

    Just kidding. I like the idea that I can finally bitch about specific work-related shit somewhere. I mean REALLY like it.

    Yes. Of course that's pathetic. I mean, god knows we don't start 17 threads about how pissed off we are.

    How dare someone compile them all in one spot!

    There was a Web site in the 1990s called Newsmait.com. Oh, man. It made our old board seem meek. Those news-side people were bitter, bitter, bitter. There were threads on specific newspapers and it was just brutal.

    I have my place to vent, thank you very much.

    Poisonkitchen.com also was a pretty vile place. Each newspaper had its own forum to just bash away.

    I've read two pages and already come across the word Asshats and Fucktards. I approve.

    Yeah, I forgot about PoisonKitchen.com. That was a snakepit.

    They had Web sites in the 1990s?

    I know you're kidding, but I checked and Newsmait died in 1998. It did seem new and subversive at the time. It's amazing when you think about what the Web was like then.

    Of course. They were all in Times New Roman and had flying toasters.

    Are you kidding man? Do you know what kind of hassell it was to get porn back then? You had to go into an AOL chat room, talk to people, hope they had some doctored fake nuddie pictures of Jennifer Love Hewitt, then offer him the fake nuddie pics you had of tiffany amber theissan, wait 20 minutes for the upload to work, hope he was a man of his word, wait 20 more minutes to download said pic, pray to God when it opened that it wasn't secretly a picture of a dude, close the curtains, set the music and then beat it like it owed you money.

    Or so I've heard, of course.

    Nowadays, all it takes is typing in http://www.y into your web browser and you get an auto fill that takes you right to the website you've spent far too much time on, 20 seconds later you're watching two girls, one cup and the rest, as they say, is history.

    God I love technology.
