Has Pud gone soft? Perhaps all of the money he's generating from his email lists have given him an alternate reality?

The idea isn't all that bad: perhaps it is indeed refreshening to actually hear good news (or at least news that is not all negative) rather than just getting another confirmation that yes, 90% of all Internet companies are fucked; yes, you won't find a decent technology-related and high-paying job now; yes, all the shares you invested in are worthless; ...

Perhaps, just perhaps, the bubble burst is over, and the press reverts to just a tiny bit of positive dotcom coverage.

Or perhaps, I'm just reading too much into this news item. :)

So KBToys bought the festering pile of crap that is eToys.com for like $3.4 million or some ABSOLUTELY FUCKING REDICULOUS number. Hint, you stupid fuckheads at KB: ABORT MISSION and instead hire some high school kid to make that site for you in 2 fucking months.

i wouldn't say Soft.

he has just expanded.

Looks to me like it's simply a different url with a new header to get around corporate firewalls and censorware. All the links have a "FuckedCompany" header.

I saw that, but I wondered if perhaps he was going to split it off at some point. It makes logical sense of course for him to do that. Of course I wonder if the happy fun slander boards would be any different. If not, then Pud will post a 'lucked" company and his readers will tear it a new asshole... That could actually end up generating more business for the other side of Pud's world. Hmmmm.

Of course, you may be right. It may be firewall circumvention.

Ironic. I post the link, and only two or three weeks later, my company graces the site's presence... How weird...
