I’m over on Stumbleupon doing that which I have not done in a long long time - just hitting the Stumble button and letting it take me where ever it takes me and let me tell you folks, it isn’t pretty.
On the rare occasions that I was sent to a fellow Stumbler’s page inevitably whatever had been thumbed up no longer existed thanks to the great Stumble Purge of 2011 so it was pretty much slim pickings as far as original material goes.
Therefore, I took it upon myself to help SU help themselves by thumbing down all material that is/was no longer germane to their issues, however and because I’m a good person I did give myself a very strict criteria to follow lest I be accused of indiscriminately wielding the power of the thumbs down so I limited myself to nixing the following:
A) Slow to load - if it takes forever to load I probably don’t want to waste a second of my precious life on it so down went the red thumb.
B) Fattening - I’ve seen pictures of the Stumble staff and some of them are looking a little pudgy. So, if it was a recipe for anything over 100 calories per serving I gave it the old heave-ho not because I’m a mean bitch but because I’m a mother and I care.
C) All articles about creativity - It’s fairly obvious, at least to me, that creativity has no place over on good ol’ SU - so I thumbed down all crafts, all interior decorating hints, all lists on how to jump start one’s creative flow, anything and everything about creative writing - if it had creative or crafts in the title I thumbed it down.
D) Any title to any page that was spelled incorrectly - You may think “u” is a nice substitute for “you” but I think it’s just laziness and should be thumbed down on general principle.
E) Pages of lists that contained only 7 or fewer list items - Seriously, if you can’t think of at least ten things to support any of your cockamamie suppositions then, quite frankly, you’re just not trying and your cause is worthless to me. Give me TEN on a top ten list or give me nothing at all, I say.
Anyway, that’s what you’re Auntie Red has been doing for you today - cleaning up SU and making the world a safer place for us all.
Cloggy:- A wonderful example of MizRed’s prose, and SU threw all this away.
