I don't know who this person is and I have no reason to. First impression after 1 minute is that she is a dipshit. Yes, you "hate" the internet so much that you're posting a video all about it on the internet. I'm so fuckin sure. If she really felt what she's saying she'd just walk away and find a new hobby instead of making a big deal about "HEY LOOK AT ME LEAVING EVERYONE! I'M LEAVING NOW! ARE YOU SORRY YET? LEAVING NOW!"
Idk what her principles or beliefs are or anything so it's not that I disagree with those per se, I just disagree with her blatant attention whoring. You're not fuckin upset lady, quit lying.
John Holmes Motherfucker
As a rule, "Attention whore" is usually a boring person's description of a more interesting person. It's a pretty human impulse to desire attention. I know some people who don't want attention, but they're not on the Internet.
It's not hard to understand. I don't know who this person is either, but what I'm seeing is ambivalence. Whatever or whoever on the internet is stressing her, there are also people she feels a connection to, people she feels she owes an explanation to, whether she really does or not.
I've been there. She'll probably be back way sooner than she thinks. She's probably back already.
I dunno JHMF, I think you're way off base. I would agree that *most* people who call others "attention whores" fit your description, like how some people will call anyone cooler than them a hipster. You're a nut job if this video says "ambivalence" to you though. A very wordy 10 minute long video about why you're quitting the internet serves only one purpose: you think people care what you have to say and your feelings are hurt and you're trying to garner some kind of "please no don't go" reaction.
She cares a LOT is what I'm saying.
John Holmes Motherfucker
I didn't watch the whole thing, but she's talking about taking a break. It's not that big a deal , and anyone whose ever felt this way knows you get over it fast.
Holy shit, this woman wants ATTENTION? You mean she desires acknowledgement and positive interactions with other human beings? What a fucking weirdo.
THAT'S DAMES FOR YOU, AM I RIGHT.
There are at least half a dozen "I'm quitting the internet" videos here every week, every time by a male (they cannot be considered men) and you same white knights have a jolly good riff on them every time.
Why do you hate women so much that you feel they must be coddled and infantilized?
Can anyone point to a place where this woman clearly deserves to be treated like shit in youtube comments by equally sad people?
I am too lazy to find out. I've never heard of her.
Since when is deserving to be shat on in comments some kind of standard that dictates if it actually happens or not and if the fallout from it is amusing or stupid or both (like this)?
Wait, when was the last time there was a "quitting the Internet" video up here that wasn't Corky?
I know I should just not comment on this, but God help me, I can't help myself. I'm probably an attention whore, but I guess that makes me really interesting. THIS IS THE MRA HILL I AM GOING TO DIE ON!
I agree with Nominal. There are Quitting Forever/You All Should Treat Me Better videos on here all the time (maybe not weekly, but all the time). We had a whole week of them, inspired by Goronchev's amazing For The Haters video (it was called For The Haters Week). Usually they're men, because usually they come from men. NONE of them get the "c'mon guys leave the guy alone, he just wants attention - who doesn't?" treatment. Now I'm not going to say this is a gender thing - I'm willing to, but I'll set it aside for now - because she is pretty well spoken. However, after I watched four minutes of her saying ten seconds worth of content over and over, I checked out her channel and, SURPRISE, she's a makeup artist that seems to specialize in Sailor Moon and Final Fantasy shit. Perhaps if you lets be nice on PORTAL OF EVIL want to throw down, one of you might want to submit one of those Feminist Frequency videos or something.
Also, JHM is only saying what he says about people who call others attention whores because _he is an attention whore_, and to attention whores, nobody but themselves is interesting to them. You might say his creepy Boxxy obsession is evidence against that, but to anyone that's spent any time reading the deranged stuff he says about her (which I either don't recommend or STRONGLY recommend), it's pretty clear that he's obsessed with a woman that he made up and looks like a little girl he watches the videos of on the Internet.
John Holmes Motherfucker
Speaking as confrimed attention whore, Hooker is one of my favorite people.
>>You might say his creepy Boxxy obsession is evidence against that, but to anyone that's spent any time reading the deranged stuff he says about her (which I either don't recommend or STRONGLY recommend), it's pretty clear that he's obsessed with a woman that he made up and looks like a little girl he watches the videos of on the Internet.
What's pretty clear is that I've left myself open to easy, obvious attacks like this from guys like hooker who don't really feel the need to come up with an actual argument. It used to be embarrassing, but now it's pretty boring. But I feel the need to answer, and so I shall.
I have a therapist, a good reputable talk therapist, a man in his 70s who I've been seeing for years. I spent a whole session once telling him the whole Boxxy story from beginning to end, the whole thing in detail, and his final verdict on my obsession (no other word for it) was that it was, in his exact words, "reality based". In light of that, I find it pretty easy to disregard the diagnosis of the learned Dr. Hooker.
If you begin with the very reasonable idea that the internet is the most important cultural phenomenon of my lifetime, it's not as crazy as all that to believe, as I sometimes do, that Catie Wayne is the most fascinating person in the world. The way the internet responded to her as a girl, and the way she responded to the internet as a young woman, these are things had really never happened before. This is something new in the world, happening right in front of me in real time, and it's still playing out.
I think she's really cute and really charming, and sometiimes it feels like a crush, and that feels kind of sad, so I have to pull back,. But I don't talk to her that much. I'm much better friends with her mom, and I find that relationship to be a pretty good window on reality.
It's something that I'm going to have to move past one day, and maybe that's already happening. Usually, when I start to move on, Catie comes up with a big surprise.

Oh, I think it's definitely a gender thijng. My feeling is that if we looked at some of these videos for which men are mocked, we're going to see some actual dickish bejhavior and not just emoting, or caring about dumb things like "leave JLAW alone"
Anyway, who can produce some links to these entires? I'd like to find out.
John Holmes Motherfucker
I have one more thing to say about this.
>>>but to anyone that's spent any time reading the deranged stuff he says about her (which I either don't recommend or STRONGLY recommend), it's pretty clear that he's obsessed with a woman that he made up and looks like a little girl he watches the videos of on the Internet.
Hooker says things like this over and over again in absolute earnest, without ever bothering to explain or prove them, and the reason for that is because he can't imagine that a young woman could really be that interesting or brilliant. He uses his own lack of imagination as if it were forensic evidence that need not be questioned or justified. He's not exactly stupid, but he's pretty ignorant.
I understand how it looks. I know what the first thought that comes to mind is. But some people just lack the mental capacity or the intellectual curiosity to ever consider a second thought.... annnnnnnnnnnnnnnnd fuck them.
Motherfucker, I think your Boxxxy obsession is pretty endearing and I didn't know about it until now.
Hooker is just jealous of your shining love lights.
How did you become friends with her mom?
Yeah. So, I rest my case.
John Holmes Motherfucker
Of course, you do, honey. That's what you always do with your case. You rest it. Hooker, you're about 30, and I'm about to turn 56.. Try to imagine an arrogant 17 year old telling you your business like you try to tell me mine. How seriously do you take him? How much do you think he really knows about you?
I became friends with Catie's Mom through the usual means. Twitter and GMail mostly. She's been very kind to me, and I wouldn't be able to do this without her.
Dude, I rested my case already. There are rules.
John Holmes Motherfucker
If you think the rules say that I'm supposed to rest my case when you rest yours, you need to watch more court TV shows.
So I did a search for poetv for "haters", and watched maybe 4 or 5 videos, and while I didn't see a lot of out and out dickishmness in the men who were being mocked, I did see a lot of weirdness. Which is something. I'm pretty sure I've actually defended Bronies and furries, but at least it's a thing, a premise, a reason to get on someone's case. Guys mock women for being women.
>>There are at least half a dozen "I'm quitting the internet" videos here every week, every time by a male (they cannot be considered men) and you same white knights have a jolly good riff on them every time.
Really? Every time? So it shouldn't be hard for you to come up with an example. I'm not saying it doesn't happen. Show me.
A "jolly good riff" implies some kind of humor, Even mean humor has value if it's actually funny. Calling someone an attention whore isn't funny. That's what usually gets me to object, when people are being mean without being funny, about something which doesn't concern them. If you're not following her on youtube, she 's not talking to you, she's not expecting you to be interested, so you don't need to make a point of how not interested you are. That makes YOU the one with the overly important feelings.
I'm not interested in this, and that's why I didn't watch 95 per cent of it.
Anybody remember that weird looking fairy girl exhibit from POE Red that said *weg* a lot? Eventually she found out that everybody was making fun of her. She came to the site and the dog pile in the forums on her was seriously fucked up.
I suppose I am resistant to the 4channish deathwish that some of you fat pathetic fucks commit to. That experience is really what put me off POE Red, and I like that this place isn't filled with sadsacks that do nothing but pick on people because they are fat, ugly, or social pariahs of some kind. They have to do something kind of bad to get on my list, you know what I mean? Watch from a distance at least, you know?
I guess you could argue that Sailor Moon anime makeup is evil. I hate almost all anime as some of you know by now, so I should really be in support of this as an exhibit. I guess she's attention whoring. Overall kind of boring though. Maybe she'll come back so that everyone can fuck with her some more.
I am also really happy to find out that a 50-something on here is on here and that he is obsessed with a youtube personality. That has been the most interesting thing about this submission.
Hey, I remember that stupid fairy girl! I don't know what the hell you're going on about, that was fucking hilarious!
JHM, your compass is off by roughly 170, you attention whore.

|Monkey Napoleon - 2014-03-22 |
Just goes to show you that you don't have to have severe autism or some kind of debilitating mental illness to allow internet people to push you into making attention whoring videos of a questionable basis on the youtubes.
|Scrimmjob - 2014-03-22 |
As a subhumanoid, I find her words hurtful.
Make a 10 minute long video about how it hurts your feelings and you're quitting the internet! Why? Let me get back to you on that one.
I have sewer people in my family tree, so hearing her use that term as an insult is pretty triggering.
|SolRo - 2014-03-22 |
ah crap, I thought she looked like the lady who was taking apart the Apollo computer chips...I want my upvote back.
|Pillager - 2014-03-22 |

Man what a prude. HEY LADY COME TO MY HOUSE AND I WILL SHOW YOU THINGS.
OH THE THINGS I WILL SHOW YOU.
Mostly it involves beer. And making beer. BUT NEVER MIND ALL THAT.
p.s. SHOW US YOUR TITS
|StanleyPain - 2014-03-22 |
Sweet jesus, you make youtube videos about anime, get some fucking perspective. You're not fucking Joyce Carol Oates or something...dear lord...

Admits to talking about controversial topics.
Gets upset when said topic generates controversial responses.
The world is not your hugbox lady, and it's easy to stem the flow of vitriol if you have a mind to.

Oh boy, another woman who saw some Daria episodes and can't move on.
|Caminante Nocturno - 2014-03-22 |
Oh, man. It's like there's a pity party in my mouth, and everyone's invited, but only a bunch of fucking crybabies showed up.

I wonder how she will react if she ever gets her own Encyclopedia Dramatica entry.
|Fezren - 2014-03-23 |
Everything about this sets me on edge. Like nails on a chalkboard. Or crying babies. Or really dry porous things in my mouth.
Watching this video is pretty much the same thing as chewing on pumice stones.
|joelkazoo - 2014-03-23 |
The first vid I submitted of her had her calling out the assholes and letting them know she won't be intimidated, and this one...is her succumbing to the assholes who intimidated her. Damn.
That said, she has a husband and kids and an active social life, so good luck to her.

Why is this here? Why does the hopper fail us?
anything that does ^all this^ to the site should get through the hopper, really
|pyslexic dharmacist - 2014-03-29 |
5 because I watched over half the video and still have no idea who she is or what she does or why anyone would give two tugs of a dead dog's cock if she quits the intertubes forever.
