Aight, I'ma give you a completely unrequested, free-of-charge rant right here. And let me clarify first that it's not any one person who's pissing me off; it's the fact that multiple, numerous people apparently cannot read and continue to do exactly what I asked them not to.

If you like one of the "Movies in Fifteen Minutes," I am glad. I am delighted, I am overjoyed. If you repost the entire thing on your journal/website/blog DESPITE the fact that there is a clearly stated, boldfaced warning at the end that says, "DO NOT repost this parody 1) without my name or a link back; 2) with any changes to the wording or language; or 3) in its entirety on your journal, on your website, on a message board, on fanfiction.net, or on ANY OTHER PAGE ON THE INTERNET without my written permission," I WILL find out about it, due to a little thing called Technorati, and I WILL come over to your blog, and I WILL ask you, very politely, to take it down. Really, can't you 1) save us both some time and 2) prove that you can, in fact, read?

So far I've had to ask half a dozen people about Phantom/15M alone, and each person has very kindly taken it down and apologized. Again, it's not that any one instance or person that pisses me off. It's the persistence of humanity at large to delight in posting things that do not belong to them, even after being asked not to, that drives me nuts. Why? If you want to impress your friends with funny things you found, I promise you--a link to the page will impress them as much as the whole thing, AND it takes up less space in your journal. So, in conclusion: Do not post it on your blog. Do not post it on a log. Do not post it on your site. Do not post it late at night. Do not post it on message boards. Do not post it near fjords. Do not post it on your coffee cup. Post it and I WILL FUCK YOU UP.*



* Where "fuck you up" means "request depostification in a polite and gentle manner," but that doesn't rhyme with anything.
