A couple of months ago, I made a post and quoted a Youtube user who said “This is Internet Wonderland. You can say whatever you want about anything even if you don’t make an idea about what you are talking about.”

I also gave a definition of trolling then. I had to explain what trolling is to a friend recently, checked urbandictionary, and happened to find this awesome definition:

Being a prick on the internet because you can. Typically unleashing one or more cynical or sarcastic remarks on an innocent by-stander, because it’s the internet and, hey, you can.

Guy: “I just found the coolest ninja pencil in existence.”
Other Guy: “I just found the most retarded thread in existence.”

So, if someone pisses you off on the internet, learn to cope with it. Because this is the internet, and, hey, they can, or LEAVE THE INTERNET.


I have been planning to post this for a long time, but I have been postponing due to laziness and other stuff. So, unless you have seen this so far, here it is:

Ugliest Website

This site is made for the Ugliest Website Building Competition organized by Hostgator – also my hosting company. Find the website filled with frames and animated background images and lame design here. If you lived the age of Geocities, then you know this one!


IMDB BanAccording to Advocate Gokhan Ahi, who wrote on turk.internet.com, the huge movie database site IMDB has been banned by the Turkish Court. The story is, the former-singer-now-director Mahsun Kirmizigul’s movie has been on the internet for download for a while. The company that releases the DVD of the movie (I guess) Boyut Yayin Grubu recently applied to the court asking for a couple of sites that allow the movie to be downloaded. According to Webrazzi, the sites include torrentturk.com, frmdivx.com, divxcity.org, turkdivx.net and imdb.com.

However, they have made a typo with imdb.com’s address, so they banned imbd.com, which is a parked domain that apparently tries to make money from advertisements when users type imdb.com’s address wrong. The ban, like the old ones on Youtube and WordPress, is DNS-bansed – which means it is easy to pass the ban by changing the DNS addresses.

The thing is, this court decision shows that neither the court nor the company that applied to get these sites banned know nothing about how things work on the internet. While the typo on the name IMDB is funny enough (I am leaving aside the fact that IMDB has nothing to do with piracy, and the fact that censorship is stupid in general), this also shows that no research, investigation and expert consultation had been done before the decision.


As a last.fm user has once said:

“Web 2.0 is a lie, tagging will not save us from the Human Condition.”

A tribute to Damla’s post titled “annum novum faustum” on Facebook (too bad she no longer blogs). This is named Christmas Back Home from xkcd.
