Yelp Review Results in Defamation Lawsuit

Source: http://kdvr.com/2015/05/18/yelp-review-gets-couple-sued/

Yep, Footprints Floors believe they can sue someone for a review which was an honest opinion. I realize the couple doesn't want to waste a lot of money on such a shitty company, but they should've counter sued for even more. These fucking idiots think they can censor negative reviews on the grounds that "the review lost us customers"? Hey, idiots, maybe if you didn't provide shit service to this couple they wouldn't of needed to post a negative review. GENIUS, RIGHT?

I will continue to laugh in the faces of companies like this that think they have the right to censor things they don't want people to see. Footprints Floors, you do not have any authority over what people say, nor will you ever. I sincerely hope they fuck over another wrong customer and that customer is smart and posts another negative review which includes "Come get me, Footprints Floors." Pathetic company.

Revenge - Thoughts and Review (TV show review)

SPOILER WARNING: The first part of my review will be a condensed overview of the show and what I think of it. The second part will contain spoilers.

The best way to describe Revenge is by using its own name. It tells you what the entire series will be about. Revenge is about a girl who is seeking revenge against the people who framed her father for murders he didn't commit. Revenge is filled with various plot twists and stories and side stories that make the show more interesting. I binge watched this and just finished it today. It's a really good show. If you haven't seen it, I strongly encourage you check it out.


SPOILERS AHEAD! DO NOT READ BEYOND THIS POINT IF YOU HAVEN'T SEEN THE SHOW OR YOU'RE NOT UP TO SPEED!!

When you figure out what the actual story is about, you realize 'This isn't going to last long as a series' simply because it's a show about wanting revenge. There's only so far you can take it before it gets completely repetitive and boring. They nailed it with this show. The characters were perfect and amazing - all of them for their roles. I especially loved Emily VanCamp. She is freaking beautiful. There was a part in the beginning of season 4 where I stopped watching and debated whether to continue watching. This was when it turned out her father was alive, and then proceeded to go after his own daughter thinking she was an enemy. It was just one of those things where it's like 'Really? This storyline?' Despite that, it was still a good plot twist.

As much as I loved this show, I'm glad they ended it (final episode was on May 10th). They started with Amanda trying to get revenge, and just cycled through the characters, each wanting a different form of revenge. It goes back to what I said about it being repetitive an idiotic. I do believe Revenge had another motive for its plot - show how bad revenge can harm the ones you love even if done for the right reasons. People may not think about that or realize it, but this show perfectly showcases that.

(Blog Update) Enabling Blog Comments?

Hi guys. Initially, when I decided to make blog comments available on my subreddit only, I mainly did it for my own convenience. In due time, I hope to have a lot of blog articles posted. If someone comments on something from 2013, I want to make sure I know about that comment and can respond if necessary. However, I've noticed I get no comments from people. I suppose that was my own fault in thinking everyone had a Reddit account. >_>

I want to ask you, the readers, should I enable blog comments on all future posts? I may go back and enable them for past posts...maybe not, as that is a lot of posts. :P My biggest concern is spam bots posting shit that no one wants to see. I don't know, I may enable it from now on, we'll see. Comments are enabled on this article, so please give me some feedback.

Principal Takes Away Student's iPhone 6 and Refuses To Return It To Her Parent

Those that know me, or have read previous posts know I'm 100% against kids having phones in general, especially iPhones or other smart phones. Initially, I misread the title and thought it said "refuses to return it to her (the student)". That is not the case, The principal is refusing to give the phone back, period. If this was a case of the school holding it until after hours, I could understand that, but this is blatant theft. It's not even normal theft, it's grand theft, a felony, as a brand new iPhone 6 can go for $500+. If the situation was that the phone was being held because it may have evidence of a crime and the school is investigating, I could understand that, but it's not the case. My only guess is that either the the teacher or whomever took the phone found something they didn't like, so the school has confiscated the phone permanently. Or, it could be as simple as the principal personally feels no kid should have an iPhone, which I whole heatedly agree. However, that does not justify grand theft. The latter may be more likely considering this dumb ass woman provided an old flip phone as compensation. Is she fucking stupid? You're stealing a $500 phone and compensating with a flip phone that is most likely less than $20?

I hope the parent(s) contact the police. The school does not have any right to keep property that does not belong to them, especially when the person who bought the fucking phone, an adult, is there to claim it. What is going through this stupid woman's head? Does she really think she's high and mighty and everyone will roll over and obey her agenda?

Every day more idiots show their face.

Teen Titans Go - Why Is This A Thing?

Those that grew up watching Teen Titans were excited, yet skeptical when Teen Titans Go was announced. As with most spin offs, there was a fear they would completely ruin the show and ruin the possibility of a second, equally amazing Teen Titans. Sadly, they did ruin it. Teen Titans Go gives off the feel that they were trying to go for a show that little kids and babies could get into. There was less action/fighting and more stupid, silly moments. The animation style is in very poor tastes compared to the original, going back to my assumption they wanted this to appeal to the very young audience only.


For those that may have not seen this show, let me show you a comparison. The first image will be from the original Teen Titans, the second from Teen Titans Go.






Teen Titans go looks like garbage compared to the original. In general the art style is garbage.

Another huge critique is that the original Teen Titans delved into character story lines, and developed personalities for them. Teen Titans Go has none of that. All the characters are just silly, laughing fools, especially Raven. For those that watched the original, Raven was not the type to laugh and make jokes. At times she did, but it was a rarity. Teen Titans Go has shit on the original, and not surprisingly, people who have never seen the original think this show is the shit, which it isn't.


It's really sad Teen Titans has been turned into a watered down, pathetic kids show that offers nothing of value.

ProBoards Is The Worst Forum Provider You'll ever Find

ProBoards is one of the biggest forum providers out there, which is unfortunate considering how trashy, pathetic, and rude their staff are. I had the displeasure of being a member there, and while at the time I was an immature kid who made mistakes, they were worse. Their staff were biased. They'd suck the dick of veteran members, let them break rules, and shit on new members, giving them infractions and bans. There were so many veteran members who should've been banned long ago.

The worst one of them all is Patrick Clinger, the guy who owns the company. He makes it a point to be a dick to everyone except his staff. Probably because he knows they'll abandon him in an instant. Clinger comes off as a nice, caring guy, but in actuality, he only cares about the money, and whatever gain he can get. This has been proven so many times over the years.

Throughout the years, I've seen a lot of customers of ProBoards be unfairly shit on, and PB always gets away with it. Tonight, I was browsing their support forum, and someone posted that they got a take down notice for a picture that contained an animated woman exposing a little bit of her breasts. Now, the picture in question was an Andy Warhol picture. I've looked up this picture, it's a legitimate work of art. Yet, PB essentially wants to force people to pay so they can post nude content, even if that content is actual art. They've offered no compromise, nothing, just "talk to the abuse team", which will result in this guy being shit on even more.

Ricky, the admin who responded, said that PB wants to maintain a family friendly atmosphere. That's fine, but this fucking picture is featured in public libraries. PUBLIC LIBRARIES!! Where in the fuck has the common sense gone? Oh, right, PB has never had common sense. It's a fucking joke. I'd understand if the picture was legitimate porn, but it's not, not even close.

Logistics Comapny Review

Logistics Company puts you in the shoes of a dock worker. A very big aspect of this game is in the name: logistics. In the game, you will be given either containers or pallets that you need to store either storing spaces or a warehouse, both of which can be purchased.

This game was released November 5th of 2014, making it four months old. Normally, for a game that is so new, you'd be okay with the bugs and patiently wait for the developers to fix the issues. The biggest issue with this game isn't even a fault of the game - the developers have given up on the title already. This is not confirmed, or something that the developers have straight up said, however, the last update to the game, as well as the last developer/staff interaction we had was in December, the exact day they released an update. To the developer's credit, they fixed issues that had the game crashing. However, we have gone three months without any sort of word from the developers. I was told that development stopped in November, meaning they had this update done in the middle, or toward the end of November, and just completely stopped development after that.

Lets move onto some of the bugs that have been encountered and reported. The first one I encountered was that a train was supposed to have two of the same company brand containers on it. However, after receiving one container, it'd leave! The other container would then be accepted onto the second train that was there for different cargo. While the train took the wrong brand container, it of course didn't end the job because it was on the wrong train. I reloaded the game several times, but it was a constant issue. This indicates that two of the contracts were conflicting with each other.

The second issue was that the truck you pick up and remove pallets from will often despawn when you're still on it. Most of the time, the truck waits until you're off of it, and then drives away. When it does despawn, you're left out front, possibly with a pallet that you're now supposed to drive all the way around (slowly, I may add, as forklifts aren't fast) the warehouse just to get back in and unload the pallet or park the forklift back inside.

Another issue was the physics. My truck would often get stuck on fences, light posts, and/or walls. Sometimes if I tried hard enough, I could wiggle it free, but most of the time the truck would have to be reset.




Looking on the Logistics Community Forum, there is no community anymore. Yes, you may get one post or two from myself or someone else, but those are either bug reports, asking for help, or asking if the developers are even around.

It's really sad and frustrating to see that the developers put money and time into this game and got it released, got one update out, and then abandoned the game all together. The saddest part is that this is a fun game with really good graphics, and does what a good simulator game should - make you feel like you're actually a worker. When you take on a lot of jobs, and end up with multiple containers, you find yourself wanting to stack them together and keep them appropriately stored so you know where they are, you know how many there are, and you know if you're getting a little more containers than you can handle.

I got this game just a few days ago, and already put in 20 hours just because of how addicting and fun it can be. However, because of the lack of updates and lack of proper fixes, there's a good chance I'm not playing this game again.

I do not recommend this game, especially with it being $20. It is simply not worth that much, and unless the developers get their shit in order, it will never be worth more than $10 (but even $10 is being generous in this instance.
