I have no objection to doing a favour, particularly if the price is right.
There are limits though. That Other Eejit had the fucking gall to ask me if he could use my site to write a post about his site. I told him to fuck off.
Most of you will probably not be aware of his site. I think it is an invaluable site for the simple reason that it is a benchmark that marks the bottom dregs of the web world. Compared to that site, any other effort shines. He provides the ultimate example on how not to write a site, and for that alone, the world owes him a debt of gratitude. Heh!
For the last couple of days, he has been moping around the place complaining that no one ever visits, and he has discovered that it’s because the search engines won’t refer anyone to it. He has never had a single visit as a result of a search. Who says search engines aren’t intelligent? Hah! He wanted to write here to ask peoples advice and that’s when I threw him out. I told him that if he wanted to ask for help, he should do it on his own site [where no one will ever see it] and he got very upset.
Of course the reason no one ever visits his site is very simple, though I’m not going to tell him.
Every time he’s not looking, I take his site down.
