Fuck you Blogshares…

by statia on September 1, 2004

ETA:I’m moving this entry to the top for right now. Kat and I were talking about how much we hate blogshares, and how they just add your site, that you pay good money for, to their “game” without you even knowing it. You know, in the real world, companies don’t “magically” appear on the stock market. If they did, money wouldn’t be worth as much, or I’d be a very rich girl. You can read Kat’s entry about how much she hates them too. Join the bandwagon, or don’t. I just fucking hate that they don’t respond to your requests to be removed.

Does anyone know how to get yourself taken off of blogshares?. I emailed them with nothing back, and of course there’s nothing on their site about how to get yourself off of there(that I could find anyway, and I’m sure it’s because of the whole big stink in the early blogshare days). I think it’s bullshit that they just add you without you knowing. I fucking hate stocks. I’d like to kick the creators right in the taint.

Yeah, I noticed that a few months after we complained, all our blogs got put right back into the stupid thing. Don’t think there’s much you can do about it.

I’ve emailed many times and get nothing back. I have joined and claimed my blog and then joined the forums and asked for it to be removed and they have ignored me times and times again. This is the same thing that happened in the beginning.

Blogshares sucks ass.

Blogshares is the fantasy blog share game that refuses to answer peoples requests to remove their sites from the game. I have put in request after request and have been ignored. I know that Sporty has also requested to…

Why not just ignore it? Or does it send unwanted traffic to your site? My blog is on there. I was barely aware of blogshares’ existence until you brought this up.

Then again, it is kind of assy that they won’t take your blog off their lists.

my blog is not on there. i wonder if they add your blog with some sort of crawler (like a search engine uses). i have all search engines blocked from my site, so i wonder if that’s why my site isn’t listed.

I doubt you can be taken off. Blogshares grabs it’s blog info from Weblogs.com so if you ping there when you post, Blogshares has you. And unless you offer up additional info, they have nothing on you. Also, did you seriously just use the word “taint?”

The BlogShares Saga

You might have noticed that I have a link to BlogShares in my sidebar. It's there by request; I have a friend who plays the game religiously and she begged me to claim my blog(s) and play along. I know next to nothing about BlogShares or about t…

You can be taken off. They have a way to remove people that want to be taken off but they are refusing to answer those requests. I have sent in the last 6 months, a minimum of 10 requests for removal.
Not a single one has been replied to.

Oh lord, the sh!t I took for b!tching about this way back when…memories… Good to see they’re still being right arses about it!

Mine has been on there for over a year, and I never knew (I guess or cared). But the value thing…that’s just retarded.
