I think he thinks it's idiotic to create an earth-wide network of computers and then start arbitrarily limiting access to its contents.
Because that's what I think. Or would you rather PoeTV be an all-American site with no smelly foreigners voicing their nosy opinions? That kind of defeats the whole purpose of having a network spanning all nations.
How does one-starring this video punish hulu? It is an insanely impotent gesture that, at its most effective, would prevent people who are capable of seeing a video from watching it out of limp-wristed bitterness.
No one on POETV is going to magically allow Canadian residents from watching Hulu videos so maybe they should just grow the fuck up and deal with it maybe?
1. PoeTV has to link to somewhere.
2. Hulu provides a permanent "where."
3. If the PoeTV link goes to one of the bajillions of temporary locations of this video it will go dark in, at most, a day.
4. You poor huddled masses yearning to link free must sadly find one of the bajillions of temporary locations of this video and watch it for yourself, there.
5. If not for the PoeTV link to Hulu, you might never have been informed that there is a (marginally, in this case) funny skit by Conan O'Brian about North Dakota.
6. Which you can now find. With google. Or you can cry some more. Or you can move to America, GOD SHED HIS GRACE ON THEEEEEEE~
I can't view this and I find everyone's rage over one-star votes hilarious, so one star.
That's a shitty list of reasons.
If there's a better video on (youtube/liveleak/video provider that's not blocked by country), and you post the Hulu, then one star.
If it's only on Hulu, then suck it the fuck up - it wasn't meant to be watched by you.
Hey dudes heres a link that works in Canada:

O’Brien’s take seems ignorant
Conan O’Brien’s sketch of North Dakota on NBC’s “Tonight Show” that aired on Friday, June 12, goes to show O’Brien has never visited North Dakota.
By: Michael Pick, Fargo
Conan O’Brien’s sketch of North Dakota on NBC’s “Tonight Show” that aired on Friday, June 12, goes to show O’Brien has never visited North Dakota. Where did he get the idea that visitors to North Dakota are murdered for their money and that this is why the state has over a billion-dollar surplus?
O’Brien’s three-minute “Tonight Show” attempt to make the people who live in North Dakota look ignorant and stupid failed. Mr. O’Brien, come visit and meet the people of North Dakota before you stereotype us.
You left out the last line from that story.
I think we all know what it is.

this is not comedy
I was wondering how they were going to make this into a "people in flyover states are stupid" joke when North Dakotans are exhibiting a great deal more discipline and foresightedness than most Americans.

I'm one-starring content that all PoeTV users can't see, because the strenght of this site is being available and open for everybody around the world.
You're welcome to start your own AmericaTV site, but I wouldn't like PoeTV turning into one.
What an utterly meaningless gesture.
The idea that people enjoy things that you can't fills you with such a simpering rage that you issue an ineffective flail at something that will never, ever impact Hulu.
If something worthwhile gets knocked off the front page so that it can't be enjoyed by people who have access to Hulu, it will not result in people having a greater understanding of your intense suffering (because they will not know that it existed having never seen it because it didn't show up on the front page) but will instead needlessly miss out on a small bit of entertainment.
I'm sorry your life sucks, but don't subsequently make others life suck marginally more because of it.
Cube, what I'm saying is FUCKING DIE YOU RETARDED LITTLE FUCK.
I'm Canadian and I'll 5 star anything you 1 star.
I hope that submitters will try to find the equivalent clips on YouTube or some other international site before posting a Hulu clip, but if they can't, then at least SOME people can enjoy it. If ever PoeTV begins to categorically deny other countries access, then we'll have a problem. But meanwhile it takes me all of 1 second to realize it's a Hulu clip and hit "back" (or upwards of 10 seconds if it's like 3am, which it often is).
It would be nice if people started putting (Hulu) in the title or description, so that the rest of us at least get a little warning. That's about all I ask.
This is not a good reason to do a thing, nor a good thing to do.
Also a Canadian, don't be an idiot, Cube.
takewithfood, good call on including Hulu in the title.
To be honest, if even there were a YouTube clip of this, it would be useless to submit it, as I've seen how other Conan clips get taken off YouTube in a manner of days or hours.
I agree with cube
also, i enjoy the rage at the rage
If I don't like a video, I'll 1-star it. I don't like videos that are geographically blocked.
It's just that simple.

The anti-Hulu sentiment of PoeTV's Know Nothing party DISGUSTS ME.
DOWN WITH NATIVISM.

Why don't you come over to hulu and see why we're giving it stars?
I'm sure every Canadian on this site would love to do so, except the CRTC is apparently run by horrible, boring assholes who don't want anyone to have fun and thus block everything anyone from Canada would want to watch.

making idiots mad
ps if it says hulu in the title, and you still bother to vote on it
(it being the video you have not watched)
then youre a gigantic tool
I am still going to one-star Hulu videos even if they are titled "A Hulu video on Hulu hosted by Hulu: Hulu" because the exposion it causes is far more hilarious than the video itself ever could be. However, in full disclosure, MaulLove (or someone) changed the title after most of this fagdance.

"faggots butthurt over hulu" is going to be linked to a lot of videos in the future.
|lolcoolj - 2009-06-22 |
Voting one because I could see it and it was still not funny.
