As you know, MySpace is a blight and it's killing our fish and ducks. Every animated GIF-happy reprobate has a MySpace page and they spend hours changing their font color to the hue of their background images, adding public domain music they somehow feel describes them ("I load slowly"), posting bulletins about their rave nights, and advertising their blog entries about how they rawk and how kewl they are. It makes me sick.

That is why I have created my own MySpace page, so that I might kill it.

This same technique worked for Friendster and the DivX format; as soon as I adopted the technology, it began going downhill. I'm hoping to do the same for Plaxo, LinkedIn, and the Republican Party; I join, they fail. It is not lost on me that porn DVD sales are down since I began reviewing them.

So help me, won't you? Request I add you as a friend, complain that you're not in my top 24, send me naked pictures. Our interest will kill it. XPeeps is next.
