Continuing with the WatchMojo Public Relations nightmare of the past few days, we have Top Hat Gaming Man back with another video explaining this situation with a little more nuance, and a little more detail and focus on the issue at hand: The hostile elements of the “apology” that was sent to Larry Bundy jr, …

WatchMojo Responds To Top Hat Gaming Man’s Video

In the previous article, I shared a video from Top Hat Gaming Man regarding the issue WatchMojo stealing research from GuruLarry regarding video game consoles which failed to sell. Not just that, alone, but also the quite rude email they sent to Larry regarding this after they had taken the video down – this itself …

Ah, another day, another batch of insanity on the internet. Today, we have an event that happened yesterday and I just now got to writing about: WatchMojo, you know, the YouTube channel that does nonstop top 10 lists?

Here’s Ashens First Video, Because I Had Nothing Else Ready To Post Today

So, Thursday has become somewhat of a “too busy to post on Xadara” day for me – indeed, the past week has been slightly more busy than normal, so I haven’t had the chance to get going on too much in depth content – hell, it’s only usually the last hour of the day I …

Photobucket: It’s Not That You’re Charging, But How Much You’re Charging

As the Photobucket drama continues, we’re starting to more often see tweets and other such content criticizing those complaining about the changes Photobucket made last month. They virtually always seem to follow this same pattern of insulting those complaining, followed up by making the claim that the reason for the hatred is that people just …

One Alternative To Photobucket – Postimage.org

Nearly a month after Photobucket somewhat wrecked a pretty substantial chunk of the internet by locking hotlinking of images behind a very pricey paywall, users are still searching for alternatives, both common ones you would think of, and obscure ones that may be more fitting of niche uses. I, for one, am going to give postimage.org …

Apparently, People Are Actually Paying For The Top Tier Photobucket Account

In an amazing example of what amounts to a successful hostage situation (that is, successful for the hostage taker) it would seem over the past few weeks since Photobucket Screwed Over The Blogging Community  that people have actually been paying $399 for the account plan that allows hotlinking. …Are you fucking serious?

The Cost Of Photobucket Image Hosting

I’ve been letting the Photobucket drama play out over the past week without much commentary – after the initial hit, I just wanted to see what they would do in response to the criticism lobbied against them, and the results are about what I expected: Photobucket isn’t changing anything, beyond allowing one particular type of …

An MLGW Payment Kiosk Error Spawns A Bill Payment Hoax

I’m still trying to get all the details on this one, but I think I have enough to be able to write about this accurately enough, so let’s get to it: It would seem today that, for whatever reason, an error in the bill payment kiosk’s for Memphis Light, Gas, and Water (MLGW) would “not …
