Happy's Blog

Instead of putting all those shitty episode summaries into one entry, these assholes decide to create an entry for each episode and release them one after the other. I would be more forgiving if the entries contained pictures or more than one paragraph, but most is not. They usually contain a couple of sentences describing some bullshit connection between the episode and the writing of a literary master. It might even include a sentence about how they felt while watching.

Since MAL only shows recent entries, it's annoying when one person blog entries covers 8 of the 16 entries. It's a waste of goddamn space. It pushes other users' entries out and once that happens, it might as well have been sucked into a black hole because you'll never see it again.

FUCK! I'm going back to playing more Dead Space.

Which is why I put the 'pretty much for my own benefit' disclaimer above my blog. Post-It notes would make a mess of my living room so my MAL blog is easier. I leave the 1000+ walls of text for my proper blog!

And what's more annoying? When they're all marked as private!

I'm sick and it's cold so I'm more irritable than usual. Sorry Owen, you just happened to be the one who had the most blog entries on the list.

Ummm... Why so serious?

And pictures aren't necessary if that's not what you're looking for.

Le gasp!

I thought that the above-described method of MAL blogging was the intended method of MAL blogging, given that the MAL blog is vastly underpowered compared to today's popular blogging platforms (WordPress, etc.), and that you can't really do the complex stuff with it that you can do with a real blog (which you can always set up for free anytime!).

Sooo I thought that the MAL blog was for quick jotting down of thoughts after seeing an episode, as opposed to writing essays. I'd be interested in hearing your theories on the purpose of the MAL blog :)

One last thought: the contents of the posts (and their apparent value to you) should not be something you judge in determining whether or not someone is abusing a service.

For someone whose nickname is 'Happy', you sure don't seem very.
