Well, it’s practical. This has to be the cheapest method of governmental family planning assistance of which I’ve ever seen. Truly, this is brilliant.

mo’ momo: so you feel like shit
See, this is why you shouldn’t mess with Canadians. Because not only did we popularize the concept of brutality in team sports (there’s no “I” in “ICU!” Oh, wait…Canadians say “I” will put “U” in intensive care, “C?”) but our motivational speakers don’t natter on about lathering your positive vibes over the pectorals of the Universe or scattering the rose petals of your dreams on the cosmic winds. They just straight-out tell you what to do when you feel like shit.
Canucks do not mess around. If we’d had momo during the War of 1812, our Foreign Minister and his biker chick would be enduring CSIS‘s interrogations from their private quarters in the White House.

Hello, and welcome to the WordPress.com forums. Have you read sulz’s excellent guide to asking for help in the forums? And have you read Andy’s explanation of the differences between WordPress types and which forum to choose? And have you ensured that you are sober, of at least the intellectual level of a three-year-old beagle, and calm? No?

- ellaella Member May 14th, 2008 at 8:23 pm1) There’s no need to shout. Please disable caps lock.
2) What sort of business? WordPress.com blogs are non-commercial.
3) If you need technical help, could you specify what’s giving you trouble?
4) What’s your url, starting with http:/ ?
- homeworkermom Member May 14th, 2008 at 8:27 pmIM SORRY IM NOT SHOUTING …MY CAPS BUTTON IS NOT WORKING RIGHT NOW MY HUSBAND IS GETTING ME A NEW KEYBOARD RIGHT NOW AS WE SPEAK LOL…
WHAT DO YOU MEAN ABOUT NON COMERCIAL? I AM NEW TO ALL OF THIS SO I AM TRYING TO LEARN…I AM PROCESSING REBATES FROM HOME AND DOING A LIL ADVERTISING AS WELL
IS THIS WHAT YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT?
- raincoaster Member May 14th, 2008 at 8:29 pmYes, that’s against the rules here at WordPress.com.
If that’s your blog, you’re in the wrong forum anyway.

- homeworkermom Member May 14th, 2008 at 8:35 pmI HAVE JUST NEVER DONE ANYTHING LIKE THIS BEFORE….SO I AM HOPING THAT MAYBE SOMEONE CAN HELP ME FOR MAYBE DOING THIS ON OTHER SITES OR SOMETHING
- raincoaster Member May 14th, 2008 at 8:40 pmNot here. We aren’t allowed to do what you’re doing, and we’re not using blogspot, so nobody here will be able to help you.
- homeworkermom Member May 14th, 2008 at 8:44 pmWELL THANKS FOR THE RUDENESS…I WAS NOT AT ALL TRYING TO BE RUDE I AM A PERSON WHO IS LOST ON ALL OF THIS AND WAS ASKING FOR SOME SORT OF HELP…I AM NOT COMPUTER LITTERRATE….I KNOW HOW TO TYPE BUT I DONT KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT BLOGGING OR PROGRAMS OR ANYTHING LIKE THAT AND I ONLY ASKED FOR A LITTLE HELP NOT RUDENESS FROM PEOPLE LIKE YOU…*I* AM TRYING TO LEARN….
- raincoaster Member May 14th, 2008 at 8:46 pmYOU WILL HAVE TO GO SOMEWHERE ELSE FOR HELP. WE CANNOT HELP YOU. I AM NOT BEING RUDE, I AM SIMPLY INFORMING YOU THAT WE DO NOT HAVE THE KNOWLEDGE YOU SEEK.
If I wanted to be rude, I could say something else entirely. Don’t tempt me.
- homeworkermom Member May 14th, 2008 at 8:50 pmDONT TEMPT ME GEESH WHAT IS THAT A THREAT? APPERENTLY YOU HAVE MORE KNOWLEGE THAN I DO ABOUT COMPUTERS…SO ALL I WAS ASKING IS FOR SOME HELP…SOMEONE TO TELL ME WHAT THE BLOGGING THING IS ABOUT OR SOME DAMN THING ABOUT THAT…I WAS NOT ASKING FOR SOMEONE TO GET INTO TROUBLE FOR DOING SOMETHING THEY ARE NOT SUPPOSED TO SO DONT BE A JERK TO ME I ASSIMPLY ASKING FOR HELP ON ANYTHING THAT I CAN BE GIVEN HELP FOR….SO LIKE I SAID DONT BE A JERK CAUSE I WOULD HATE TO CAUSE YOU MORE TROUBLE :) IF YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN….
- raincoaster Member May 14th, 2008 at 8:54 pmWelcome to the internet. What, exactly, do you intend to do to me and why should I fear consequences from someone so utterly brain-dead as to be unable to operate a keyboard, an obvious scam business, or a brain, however broken-in?
- raincoaster Member May 14th, 2008 at 8:55 pmI know! You should go to this site called 4chan! They have all kinds of helpful threads:
- ellaella Member May 14th, 2008 at 8:57 pmWhy is someone linking to a blogspot blog even asking for unspecified help here? Oh, I know…
- raincoaster Member May 14th, 2008 at 8:58 pm4chan. 4chan will save her.
- homeworkermom Member May 14th, 2008 at 8:58 pmWELL FORONE I WILL WRITE THE COMPANY ABOUT YOUR RUDENESS AND SEE WHAT I CAN DO ABOUT HAVING YOU BANNED….WHAT IS YOUR PROBLEM ANYWAYS? IS THIS HOW YOU TREAT EVERYONE THAT ASKS FOR SOME KIND OF FUCKING HELP? AND JUST BECAUSE I SAID YOU WERE MORE COMPUTER SMART THAN I AM YOU ARE GOING TO PUT ME DOWN FOR IT? IS THERE SOMEONE ELSE OUT THERE THAT CAN SEE HOW DISTURBED THIS IDIOT IS? WHAT DID I DO TO YOU THAT MADE YOU THINK YOU HAVE TO TREAT ME THIS WAY JUST BECAUSE I ASKED FOR SOME FUCKING HELP??
- ellaella Member May 14th, 2008 at 9:00 pmFirst you asked for help. Unspecified. Now you’re talking about “fucking help.” Which is it?
- homeworkermom Member May 14th, 2008 at 9:00 pmBECAUSE I THOUGHT I COULD BLOG HERE TO AND WANTED TO TRY IT BUT FIRST YOU CLEARED THAT FOR ME ELLA SO I ERASED WHAT I WAS TRYING BECAUSE I DID NOT KNOW I COULD NOT DO THAT IN HERE…I THOUGHT BEING ABLE TO POST ANYWERE WAS OK…I DONT KNOW MUCH ABOUT COMPUTERS AND THE PROGRAMS ON HERE THATS WHY I AM ONLY ASKING …. WHY IS THAT SO HARD FOR YOU TO UNDERSTAND?
- raincoaster Member May 14th, 2008 at 9:00 pmI only treat really, really stupid, stubborn, abusive people this way. When volunteers in the technical forum answer questions politely and people find the answer is not what they want to hear, reasonable people don’t conclude that the messenger is rude. They simply get on with making their hot, steaming piles of money from their rebate-processing MLMs and get over it.
You make threats, you call people names, you get treated badly. Did you not learn that in kindergarten?
- raincoaster Member May 14th, 2008 at 9:01 pmIf you are going to write to the company, try and take the caps lock off before you do it. They totally hate that.
- homeworkermom Member May 14th, 2008 at 9:02 pmWHO MADE THREATS? WHO WAS CALLOING NAMES? WHO WAS TREATING PEOPLE BAD? YOU DID NOT ANSWER POLITELY EITHER SO I DONT KNOW WHO YOUR TRYING TO KID AROUND…
- ellaella Member May 14th, 2008 at 9:04 pmNo, homeworkmom, it is you who is rude and condescending and abusive and demanding and even more abusive.
Good luck. Ciao.
- homeworkermom Member May 14th, 2008 at 9:06 pmWELL IF MY SON DID NOT SPILL MILK ON THE KEYBOARD THIS MORNING THEN I WOULD NOT HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THE CAPS STICKING…MY HUSBAND IS BRINGING ME A NEW ONE HOME…SO IM SORRY THAT YOU FOR SOME REASON HAVE TO THINK THAT MY ASKING FOR HELP WAS IN THE WRONG BECAUSE I THOUGHT THATS WHAT YOU DO HERE BUT WHAT HAVE I EVER DONE TO ANY OF YOU THAT WOULD MAKE YOU TREAT SOMEONE LIKE SHIT JUST FOR ASKING FOR SOME HELP…SO WHAT I WANTED TO POST A BLOGG ON HERE WHY CANT PEOPLE HELP WITH THAT…I HAVE A PERSONAL LIFE AS WELL RATHER THAN JUST WORKING ONLINE…I DO HAVE A BLOGG IN ANOTHER PLACE SO WHAT…WHATS WRONG WITH WANTING TO TRY SOMETHING NEW?
- homeworkermom Member May 14th, 2008 at 9:07 pmCLEAN YOUR GLASSES ELLA AND READ UP HE IS THE ONE THAT STARTED THE NAMECALLING FIRST AND WAS RUDE…ALL I ASKED FOR WAS SOME HELP….
- raincoaster Member May 14th, 2008 at 9:08 pmYes, why not go have that blog in the other place…or that personal life…because sooner or later it’s going to dawn on you that you’ve been YELLING AT US FOR SOME TIME AND WE TOLD YOU WE COULD NOT HELP AND YET YOU ARE STILL YELLING AT US.
If you can’t stop yelling because your keyboard is stuck, what is that to us when you start swearing and threatening? I don’t think your keyboard is stuck on “fucking”.
- homeworkermom Member May 14th, 2008 at 9:10 pmEXCUSE ME BUT YOU ARE THE ONE WHO STARTED THE RUDENESS…AND THE THREATS WITH (DONT TEMPT ME) I AM NOT AT ALL YELLING AT ANYONE…IF YOU WOULD READ UP I SAID I WAS SORRY THAT I WAS NOT YELLING….SO GROW UP
- ellaella Member May 14th, 2008 at 9:12 pmWe still don’t even know the real problem, except it apparently has something to do with fucking.
- homeworkermom Member May 14th, 2008 at 9:14 pmELLA NOW WHY ARE YOU BEING RUDE? I WANTED TO KNOW ABOUT BLOGGING IS ALL….
- ellaella Member May 14th, 2008 at 9:15 pmYou have a filthy mouth, a nasty temper and horrid manners…none of which is caused my a wonky keyboard.
- raincoaster Member May 14th, 2008 at 9:15 pmYou ARE still yelling, an hour later. Why don’t you just stop?
- ellaella Member May 14th, 2008 at 9:16 pmAnd just for the record, I was not rude. Sarcastic, maybe. Rude, no.
- homeworkermom Member May 14th, 2008 at 9:19 pmYOU KNOW I WISH I COULD RAIN….JUST CAUSE I AM HAVING PROBLEMS WITH MY KEYBOARD…I AM SORRY I WAS NOT TRYING TO BE RUDE IN ANYWAYS TO ANYONE…. I HAVE A FILTHY MOUTH? YOU ARE THE ONE THAT KEEPS TALKING ABOUT ….OH WE DONT KNOW THE PROBLEMS EXCEPT IT HAS SOMETHING TO DO WITH FUCKING…. I HAVE A BAD TEMPER?

- homeworkermom Member May 14th, 2008 at 9:27 pmOH AND DONT LET THAT SCARE YOU…I WILL MAKE SURE YOU LOSE YOUR FUCKING BLOGGS ON HERE1

@katm – sure, fruit too. Popcorn’s just so perfect with drama.
@diamond – LOL.
- sulz Member May 14th, 2008 at 10:48 pmhomeworkermom: if you’re still reading this, i think you totally misunderstood everybody here. when raincoaster said
Not here. We aren't allowed to do what you're doing, and we're not using blogspot, so nobody here will be able to help you.
she was not being rude at all. first off, this is the wp.com forums, where most of us volunteers (we are not staff but volunteers who take time to help other bloggers out but only on wp.com blogs because we are using it and therefore most familiar with it) only have knowledge in wp.com blogs. you provided a blogspot blog, and we don’t use that, so rain’s point is that since we don’t use blogspot, we can’t help you.
i understand that you are trying to learn blogging, but when someone says they can’t help, it doesn’t mean they’re rude. it just means that they don’t have the right knowledge in the product you’re using.
also, i think that nobody is obligated to help you. if they refuse just go elsewhere and seek help. there are plenty of resources on the internet to help you start with blogging.
homeworkermom Member May 14th, 2008 at 9:45 pmYOU MISSED OUT ON THE ACTION DIAMOND….SO FUCK YOURSELF AND THE BOAT YOU CAME IN ON….FOR SOMEONE THAT ASKED FOR SOME HELP YOU GUYS ARE A BUNCH OF FUCKED UP SCUMBAGS!

Rain and the rest of you have me pissing my pants. :)

wonder when staff will close this thread. we have had enough drama and
follow-up here and it has too much inappropriate content to be a
support thread any longer and should be moved into off-topic.
just my two cents……

No Caps Vivianpaige, even in acronyms! LOL
how to make a Dirty Martini REALLY dirty
Another from Married to the Sea.
blog fodder made easy: how to write epics!
We’ve all been there: When you open the Write Post page, the void looks also into you.
Here is the quick and dirty version of how to feed your blog on a majah scale: with EPICS! Who doesn’t like epics? They’re epic! Epically epic!
First: you need a setting. Rip one off from an existing epic and call it une hommage. We’ve got BiblicalBabylonianCarolingianArthurianGangsterianBeat Generationianand Space Operaamong others. Look at your (comic)bookshelf and pick one.
I’ve got The Book of Murderso Chicago in the Twenties, here I come!
Now you’ll need characters, several of them. Just try to write an epic without any character! We call that a Livejournal.
Now, if you get both the characters and the setting from the same epic, what you’ve got is a retelling (we call it “retelling” or “reworking of the archetype,” we do not call it a “ripoff” for that makes our lawyers quite defensive and we just can’t deal with that right now). And we’re not writing How To Write A Retelling here, are we? We’re talking about writing a brand-new epic! So you’ve got to steal your setting and your characters from, and this is the key, different epics, or even one epic and one Symbolist poem or one epic and an old radio drama or something. That could be good. They had the best hair on those old radio dramas.
If you still can’t find any characters you like, we recommend stealing them from this handy-dandy Characters for an Epic Tale chart from Tom Gauld (via Edenborough).
As for plot, just use one of these ready-made plot generators. Don’t say we never did nuthin for ya.
- romance plot generator
- Steven Seagal movie plot generator, and what is a Steven Seagal movie if not epic? Eh?
- Dan Brown plot generator for those who aspire to best-sellerdom
- Late night cable movie generator
- villainous plot generator
- plot twist generator
- the utterly random plot generator, which I swear the gods are using on my life right this moment
If you find your well running dry even so, just have a man come through the door with a gun OR add bo stick wielding flying cephalopod ninjas. Everyone loves the big squids! After that, who cares how you wind it up as long as the hero ends up with the girl and the villain escapes to cause sequels another day?
And, most importantly, it is a truth universally acknowledged that in the online world, every epic blog post must contain a direct link to http://raincoaster.com.
