Facebook page making money from Our Lord

Postby The Dark Noodle on Wed Mar 13, 2013 9:16 pm

I would like to draw peoples attention to this facebook page. I feel they are trying to make money from Our Lord Noodle.

https://www.facebook.com/ImTheFlyingSpaghettiMonster

They post a great deal of non FSM related images via lolspots,com when you click on the thumbnail to see the image they get paid for the click.

They are now gauging the people who like the page about a new blog, when I asked the question in not venganza.org good enough my posts were deleted, those that liked them and myself barred from posting on the page.

I think the page is "Tinned Pasta"

After trying several times to talk to the Admin of the page I sent them an email with a picture from google maps to try and get their attention, here is the text of the conversation so far

Are you going to keep running away from people that ask you questions?


His response

interesting... we have a butthurt alert... well cos i blocked you from my page... do you wish to go to war dear Freddie... I graduated with a bs in Computer engineering.... do not start a war you cannot finish


My reply

Michael,

I have no desire to start a war, I was merely trying to get your attention in the hope that you would be mature enough answer some questions. well it appears that I was only partially successful, I got your attention but your response leads me to believe that there is little hope that you will ever show any maturity.

I will ask you the question anyway and see if you can prove me wrong.

Do you actually understand The Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster?
Why are you trying to make money by exploiting the idea and reputation of The CotFSM?
Will you ever enter into a public discussion about your actions?

Many people have invested a lot of time and effort into The CotFSM and for you to come along and try to make a quick buck off the back of their work puts you in the same category of person as those seedy Televangelists who fleece the public so they can fit out their bathrooms with gold taps.

Regards

Rev. Dr. Jo. Freddie PHD


Should he respond I will update the thread.

The conversation continues.....
Michael wrote:lmao.... is this because of the lolspots. that appear on my facebook wall.... are you really that hurt about it.
list of my other pages using lolspots
(1) https://www.facebook.com/UnlawfulHumor?ref=hl
(2) https://www.facebook.com/ThatsTheGSpot

Also last time i checked.. my page is called Flying Spaghetti Monster... nothing to do with Church of FSM. it also states comedian... that means nothing done on that facebook page should be taken seriously... Also CotFSM has no problem with anyone using their trademark or name as long as they dont sell any of their products... please stop messaging me and find a solution to your hurt.
"A: It’s ok to use FSM materials for your own use and to spread the word – I’m happy to see it. There have been a number of sports team and club shirts — I can provide high quality images/vector designs for screen printing, just let me know.

That said, it’s not ok to *SELL* FSM products."

That is a slight improvement, would it not have been better to respond the first time someone questioned you, instead of just blocking them? That is the action of one who may feel the person has made a valid point and does not wish to have it highlighted. It is hardly consistent with your stated aim...

“i want to set it up in such a way that everyone can post on it… and talk about any topic they feel we should all discuss… doesn’t matter weather it is politics, faith, reason, conspiracy or whatever… rather than a forum… the person with the wild idea post his/her idea and we all discuss it ”


The lolspot posts are seldom if ever FSM related, if they consisted of original FSM related material that may be different, but they are neither. Puerilely a revenue generating exercise. Lolspots aim - "Your facebook page is valuable! Why not make money from it now?"

You may not be selling FSM products, but using the Flying Spaghetti Monster to make money still goes against the ethos of the idea.

His other facebook pages are still using lolspots, but at least he has now stopped tarnishing Our Lord Noodle with them.

:lurk:

Well still no sign of lolspot posts on the page, he is still using it on his other facebook pages but no longer seems to be trying to moniterize Our Lord on his FSM page any more.

While I don't see the point of him setting up the other website, he does not seem to be trying to make money off it.
