I noticed this about a month ago. I can't believe it's still there (and still stolen).

Of course, you know why most of those people get caught? It's because someone else in the class (or four other someones as it happened in a class a buddy of mine taught) copied their papers off the same site. Which was the second site to pop up after google searching the topic.

Morons.

I used to love when the students would do that when I was a TA (especially on the weeks when I had 400 pages to grade and 100 pages to write while still trying to fit in Happy Hour in the Afternoon and 5 AM closing time). I used to look for the dumbest students in my class, find their papers, and if any long words were used; type the sentence into Google. Voila, paper found, F for the semester (or, if I was in a bad mood, get them suspended from the university), and less work to deal with for me.

For crying out loud Guru, I cant damn well DEFEND that disclaimer. But what I *can* do is make this the official

NETCOP HAPPY BIRTHDAY THREAD!

Yes, I know its early but Im going away for the weekend and cant wait around for whatever weird shit Scots has planned. So HAPPY BIRTHDAY NETCOP!

From this week's NWA TNA Rant

They then do a spot so simple and yet crazy that Im shocked its never been done before: Simon starts to do the superplex, but Storm jumps onto the middle turnbuckle and starts to powerbomb him down. Then, before that can begin, Swinger suplexes HIM, resulting in a four-man stacked superplex that nearly blows the roof off the place. That was truly crazy and yet totally safe. Holy SHIT sums it up nicely

From a NWATNA website news report

James Storm was injured last night on the TNA PPV during the tag team match with Storm & Chris Harris against Simon Diamond & Johnny Swinger. Storm hurt himself when he came down hard on his neck during the 4 man powerbomb/superplex spot. Despite his injury, he insisted on taking part in the War Games match that was taped for next week's TNA PPV. After the taping, he was taken to the hospital for X-rays. He was diagnosed with a mild concussion and neck strain.

Holy SHIT is right! Id hate to see a spot that AINT safe!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY NETCOP!!

I'd just like to say that:

OnlineOnslaught.com shall not be held liable for any direct, indirect, direct-but-to-the-left-NO!-stop-there-NO-wait-back-a-bit-to-the-right, indigent, incidental, stuff-al, special, spatulal, consequential, incontinental or exemplitudinous damages, including but not limited to, damages for loss of profits, your mom, goodwill, cheetahs, use, smell, data, Mr. Data, your stupid Rancid CD that you left in my house for like two months Chad, or other intangible losses like that bitch Ellen (whether or not Yaphet Kotto has been notified of the possibility of such damages).

We cover all bases.

Probably someone would have to tell 411...or Rotten Tomatoes. Presumably you've taken care of that with this post.

I take it you feel we're not getting enough mention over on 411, so you felt like stirring the pot? :)

Actually, I was reading the Terms of Service for a different site that I was on, and I remembered this was here. I think it's been like this since the redesign - which is when I was there last.

I guess no one actually reads TOS anywhere.

I think CRZ covers that in his "Manifesto" which came across as genuine, whether it is or not is another matter
Copied and pasted from the Announcement section (personally I think it should also be in the registration agreement);


    Hey, lookit me! I've got a giant bug up my ass again!

    THIS IS NOT A CHATROOM. This is a message board. This is a message board that I would like to have LOTS of people use. If I come on and see that there have been 300 posts in the past 24 hours, I would HOPE that that is closer to, say, a hundred people putting up three posts each than, say, two people putting up 150 posts.

    If you find that you and one other person have gone back and forth for three or four rounds in ten minutes or less, that's probably a good indication that you should take it to ICQ or AIM, because it's REALLY, REALLY ANNOYING to the people who come by a few hours (or days) later to have to slog through your "real-time" discussion.

    While I am looking for the world record in pageviews and visits, I am NOT looking for the world record in posts. I STRONGLY prefer *quality* of content to *quantity* (despite some of the crap I've "published" on the site proper). If my encouragment to *think before you post* is too subtle for you, you will find me being less subtle. This may cause you to hate me for the rest of my life, but I hope you understand that while it may seem to you that I'm being personally offensive, I (usually ) mean no offense.

    I AM A DICTATOR! Now, usually I'm a benevolent dictator, but that doesn't mean I'm any less a dictator. Hey, at least I'm up front about it. If I don't like what I'm seeing, I'm gonna say something, and if it keeps happening, I will use my iron will to make you so unhappy you leave and never come back. Of course, I'd LIKE for you to come back...just be less damn annoying when you come back! That ain't so bad when you really think about it.

    Now, even given that I AM a dictator, my intentions are still pretty good - I want a place where people who visit my site can show up and talk about things. In a perfect world, there'd be a lot more talking about the site, but I realise that that ain't much of a starter on most days, for whatever reason. I also know that people like to personally email authors instead of leaving public comments, and that's cool too.

    I try to keep the subject matter on the forums pretty broad because I'd like to keep the membership pretty broad. If I sense trends that are limiting, I try to weigh in and let it be known. Again, this can be perceived as incredibly egomaniacal and offensive, but believe me, if you ever got to know me, you'd know that it...well, I suppose it IS at that. ;-)

    The reason this board is named "Wienerville" is I expect that there will be a lot of wieners around - message boards attract wieners. The ezboard, good God - if you were there, I don't have to tell you about it. It's really a paradox: I enjoy having the feedback and discussion that a message board provides available to me, but at the same time I so often find myself thinking SHUT UP, JUST SHUT UP whenever I'm on a message board.

    Part of this is 'cause I'm REALLY REALLY OLD, at least as far as this corner of the 'Net is concerned - get on Delphi and it's all 15 and 16 year olds, so it's no surprise that a fogey like me can get all frumpy and grumpy. That's probably why my attempts at shaping this board usually end up in sympathy to the people closer to my age (and above! Heaven forbid!) and why the ultimate "product," I think, tends to read more mature. These are the people who set the examples, chillen...if you're one of those revolutionary youth, ye best be fightin' the power somewhere else because it'll only end in tears if I start cracking the whip.

    Well, hell, *I* don't know where I'm going with this. It's just that I felt like it was time to put on the "brutal sumbitch" hat again and make sure that I was so vague that any true message I may have had would go completely missed, especially by the people I was targeting in the first place. ;-)

    Now despite everything I've said above, I *am* receptive to constructive criticism if you actually want to bring it up. Of course, I think it only fair to also tell you that I am far less receptive to constructive criticism disguised as outright flames, as well as constructive criticism on some other board I don't read forwarded to me by third parties. You CAN leave me private messages, though, and I'll keep our talks as private as you wanna keep them - or not, if you don't.

    OH! And I want more SUCKING UP TO ME! C'mon, where's MY....no, I don't even want to say it for fear it'll actually HAPPEN, and then it won't be funny at all. Those people can stay latched onto their deitys of choice, miles away from this board and blissfully ignorant.

    Final note is another repetition: if you're being shy, stop! I want to hear what YOU have to say more than the guy with 400 posts - believe me, we already know EVERYTHING that THEY think so bring us YOUR opinion instead! ;-)

Hey, the TOS magically got fixed all on it's on?

Actually, it only counts as fixed if you mean "doing a find/replace on Rotten Tomatoes".

They're still working on the "not plagiarizing" bit, which is at least consistent with the rest of the site.

411: WE TAKE THIS STUFF SERIOUSLY

Over at Weinerville, where some people are apparently HELL BENT on living up to that name, Zimmermans brother named Guru for some ridiculous reason - found something amusing about this site.

If you are of mind, zip over to Rotten Tomatoes.com and read their terms of service statement. Oh, nevermind, here it is:

Rotten Tomatoes shall not be held liable for any direct, indirect, incidental, special, consequential or exemplary damages, including but not limited to, damages for loss of profits, goodwill, use, data or other intangible losses (whether or not Rotten Tomatoes has been notified of the possibility of such damages).

Okay now check out what 411 used for OUR terms of service statement:

411mania.com shall not be held liable for any direct, indirect, incidental, special, consequential or exemplary damages, including but not limited to, damages for loss of profits, goodwill, use, data or other intangible losses (whether or not Rotten Tomatoes has been notified of the possibility of such damages).

HAW!! Funny.

Of course, it has since been changed. Well, altered just a touch. Its till the exact same statement really.

But, I simply HAD to grab Widro and DEMAND AND ANSWER:

Hyatte1com: so, which one of you geniuses used rotten tomatoes.com for the 411's TOS?

Widro: we both did, who the hell wants to write that crap?

Who the hell wants to write that crap yes, pretty much the PERFECT explanation. I have no further questions.

Except for one which I will ask because Widro likes CRZ so he wont

Im sorry, but just WHO, in their fucking RIGHT MIND, would even BOTHER to go check out websites terms of service statements and even NOTICE such a fucking thing? What kind of LOSER is this Guru to even have the time, or the INCLINATION to bother with this sort of nonsense.

Dude please go do something constructive with your life. Please.

Jesus Christ fucking LOSER.
