SiliconBeat rejects me

July 18, 2005

I was trying to post the following comment on SiliconBeat’s inane story about the MySpace acquisition:

Wow, has the term “Web 2.0” become utterly content-free that fast? Last I checked, it did not mean “web company founded post 2001″… it meant “company that shares and consumes web services”.

Much to my surprise, my comment was rejected! “Your comment was denied for questionable content.” Tell me where the naughty bits were in that comment please, I’m always the last to know when I’m being questionable.

    It’s naughty to refer to 2001. That year has been struck from the record.

  2. Gabe Says:

    Maybe they have a Beavis/Butthead filter:

    Hehehe, she said “utter” … REJECT!

  3. Dave Says:

    Maybe it was a little too “snarky” for them 🙂

  4. jeffg Says:

    ..maybe they have you on a list of dangerous subversives, and are filtering your ip address or something. The mind boggles.

  5. Hey, we’ve got an open shop here. We didn’t see Joyce’s comment come in, so not sure what happened. Bring on the snark!

  6. Interesting. Silicon Bean rejected the “trackback” from my post at The Bay Area is Talking (dot com) for the same “objectionable content.”

    I thought it was because I said I deleted “Tom” as a MySpace friend.

    Anyway, here’s the trackback if you can get it fixed.

    My guess is the word “shares,” combined with high incidence of “web” and “company,” is triggering some filter that tries to block people pumping penny stocks or something.

    Frauline zey rejected your comment because zey were afraid people would find out about ze truth that zey are corporate nazi’s looking to take over ze world. And ze only reason Tom is on everyone’s friends list when signing up for myspace is because he is mine fuhrer, or so to speak, and wants to know your every move.

  13. You’re so interesting! I do not think I’ve truly read through a single thing like this before.
    So wonderful to discover another person with a few original thoughts on this subject.
    Really.. thank you for starting this up. This web site is one thing that is
    needed on the web, someone with a little originality!
