Social Networking recognition

Postby Taco Island on Thu Jan 29, 2009 6:13 pm

In the off chance that I log into myspace.com and do anything more then check messages I noticed something very disturbing.

In the Details section under the religion preference they have listed Scientology as an option. Normally I have myself listed at other and go on about my Pastafarian ways but seeing Scientology there really bothered me.

I know that the cult and scam does have the first amendment right to exist and scam as they do but why is it that Myspace chooses to recognize a fake, scam and cult posing as a religion but does not recognize the one true carbohydrate lord and savior?

I proposed to myspace.com that if they are going to have a fake religion as an option that they need to add Pastafarian as a choice being it is a true faith unlike one proposed by a failed sci-fi, con-artist, pedophile.

I have been emailing them politely for the past few days though they continue to ignore me, well my one man crusade to be recognized needs to be stepped up and I ask my fellow believers to help. If you use myspace please kindly inform them that Pastafarianism is real and needs to be accepted especially if they recognize a dangerous cult, they don't have to remove said cult but accept and add our faith as a valid option.

Fuck THAT shit.


Facebook has a Pastafarian option. Don't use MySpace. Ever. It sucks.

Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one.

Facebook comes reasonably close to rocking. Not that it rocks, but it comes close.
"Mit der Dummheit kämpfen Götter selbst vergebens."
("Against stupidity, the gods themselves contend in vain.")
-- Friedrich Schiller (1759–1805)
Reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, doesn't go away.

English isn't much of a language for swearing. When I studied Ancient Greek I was delighted to discover a single word - Rhaphanidosthai - which translates roughly as "Be thou thrust up the fundament with a radish for adultery."

Close your MySpace account, and TELL them why you are closing it: point out that their competitors offer something that they don't. Then they will listen.

*Timidly puts up her hand. Explains that she only got a Myspace account because her nephews asked her to, and now has a Facebook account for the same reason. Wonders why she has either, as she only logs in once in a blue moon. Goes and hides in a corner when she realises the whole point is to amass as many 'friends' as possible and she only has twelve total on both. Including sons and nephews.*

I've got about four MySpace accounts for different bands I'm in, and it's a good way of keeping track of all my music buddies. Other than that... meh.
