Join the Fight Against Foursquare!

There are manly men, then there is the typical Foursquare user. If you read this blog, then you are cool and probably have no idea what Foursquare is.

Bascially, Foursquare is an ap for losers. Typically, Foursquare users are squishy do nothings who lack anything to be proud of. They spend their wretched brainless lives trying to be a fictional mayor of some establishment (or loser corner).

I would like to thank Jimbo for bringing this issue to light. I actually wanted to rail against Foursquare users ten days ago, but my bitchiness-in-every-post was starting to scare me. Jimbo gave me the courage I needed: IT'S OKAY TO BE BITCHY. LOL.

At the risk of sounding like a complete kiss ass...once again I totally agree with you. I understand the occasional "I'm having lunch at..." posts but these constant "check ins" drive me crazy.

Don't think I've ever heard of it. But the real news is that you needed someone else to give you the courage to be bitchy. Sounds kind of squishy to me.

*yawn* Brett, you have gotten so incredibly boring, predictable and egotistical.

Oh wait, nothing new. You were like that for the last two years on this blog.

So what's the difference between the Foursquare "check-ins" and some of the useless postings for a person's Facebook status? "I just woke up and i'm gonna kick ..." or "It's snowing here in ...". If I don't want to see the Foursquare updates, then I can block the app ... I can't block your useless status updates without blocking all of them from you.

Whew...good! I'm still in the "cool" category then. Because I have absolutely no clue what Foursquare is, lol.

Well, I use 4Square and it is helpful for finding friends around this city. And I read this blog - but I guess I won't anymore.

See, Brett, here's the difference between your post (and attitude) and Jimbo's.

Jimbo doesn't like Foursquare, and finds it annoying. He tells us he thinks it's annoying.

You then have to (always) take it up a notch and make it personal. You have to insult the users, calling them "losers" and "squishy do nothings who lack anything to be proud of". It never occurs to you to consider that there may be decent people who have an unfortunate habit that annoys others (like constantly posting about his meaningless tennis victories); no, for you, you have to take out the flamethrower and torch everything in your path.

That's why people think you're an asshole. Not because they disagree with your opinions (although they often do); because you lack any sort of social filter that lets you express your opinions without coming across like a complete jerk.

Kevin M.:

You have the gall to criticize me for publicizing "meaningless tennis victories" on Facebook?

Let me tell you one thing MOTHERFUCKER... tennis is a sport that requires mental sharpness, athletic prowess, balls of steel, and manly aggression. Something you'll never have.

The only SPORT you have ever played was putting panties on goats in gay rodeo competitions. That's soooo gay!

Brett:

You forget that I also wrestled steers - oh wait, I forgot, you never saw that because, despite being AT one of the rodeos in which I competed, you were too busy cruising the stands for hot men to actually pay attention to the arena. My bad.

And again, your reply makes my point for me. Instead of addressing the point, you have to launch into a personal attack on the choices other people make as somehow inherently inferior to yours, which they are not. My choices of rodeo events for competition are not better or worse than your choice of playing tennis.

But I didn't post every single rodeo score I got online, repeatedly boring everyone who didn't care about steer wrestling. And I didn't make blog posts complaining about how tennis is for losers who are too chicken to compete in a real man's sport, where you risk life and limb in trying to wrestle an 800-lb animal with horns to the ground.

The point is not that tennis is easy, or doesn't require athletic skills; the point is, in the grand scheme of life, it's no more "meaningful" than Foursquare. And again, it's not that Foursquare is good, bad, or indifferent; it's that you are so nasty as to belittle anyone who happens to like it as "squishy do nothings who lack anything to be proud of."

I happen to know a Foursquare user in California who is a gay Marine. He lost an arm to an IED in Afghanistan and then was discharged under Don't Ask, Don't Tell because one of his commanders found a letter from his partner while he was recovering in the hospital. Tell HIM he's a squishy do nothing who lacks anything to be proud of. Oh, and be sure to point out how important your tennis victories are to him while you're at it.

@Brett: You ever try to put panties on a goat? It's not that easy! What's really hard is the petticoat and the hoop skirt. They don't like that AT ALL.

Tennis is for pussies.
