Bitterwallet's National Who Cares Day - who, what and why?

29 October 2010

Who cares?

We do. And we know you do, too. Which is why Wednesday 17th November is National Who Cares Day.

What?

It's a day to take action against friends, family, colleagues and strangers who abuse Facebook, Twitter and other forms of social media with their prickish self-important noodling.

Why?

The idea was spurred on by avid Bitterwallet reader Paul, after he sent us this screenshot from Facebook - regardless of its origins, everyone will identify with it:

Bitterwallet - National Who Cares Day

The trouble is, when you point out that people are sharing information that makes you want to put your eyes through a threshing machine, it's you who's labelled the troublemaker, the outcast. No more. We're all for putting the social into social media, but that doesn't mean putting up with status updates that reads like somebody transcribed dinnertime at toddling group.

So..?

...what can you do? Good question. You'll find different sizes of the logo on this page - download it for your Facebook or Twitter avatar. Everyone who does stands to win prizes for their support. Keep tuned into Bitterwallet for more details, avid readers.

    Who cares? You do realise that you've given your readers a stick to beat you with, any article they deem to be of substandard quality is probably going to be responded to in this manner - it's the new WTF IS DIS REAL

    For those who care, it probably came from Lamebook (great site). Not that anyone cares.

    @Morocco "You do realise that you’ve given your readers a stick to beat you with..." But it's only complete cunts like yourself that actually try to insult the articles...Oh well, half terms is nearly over with...

    I really like pies!

    lol @PaulH Indeed. The most amusing thing is when said complete cunts get sand in their vaginas because Bitterwallet, a consumer blog, has covered a consumer issue.
  • Nobby
    If you really want to piss them off, resize one of the images to 5000x5000 and post that.
  • Morocco
    LMAO@ PaulH. No kid, it's only complete cunts like YOURSELF who post such childish and content-deficient comments trying to slag off other users... Since you're so observant, you'll notice that I haven't actually tried to insult an article on here and neither was my comment above an attempt to. You utter fucking cretin, get back to watching Jeremy Kyle.
  • Nobby
    It's a bit early to start publicising it. I'll have forgotten about it or got bored with it by the 17th November.

    @Morocco Oh my - you sound like such a tool.
  • Morocco
    PaulH - The only reason I "sound" like a tool, is because you're reading this out loud, in your own voice. Tool.
  • PaulH
    @Morocco Tool...
  • Occorom
    I agree with PaulH. Morocco is the tool. I can't help but feel that he should consider growing up and getting a life instead of outpouring his obvious anger at his own inadequacies on a random consumer blog.
  • Morocco
    Is that the most considered and intelligent response you can muster, you mouth-breathing, slavering fuckwit? What a pity, mugged off on your precious internetz. How can you live with the shame? I await your next predictable response when you're taking a break from Warcraft and / or chain-masturbating over Japanese cartoons.
  • Morocco
    I can't help but feel PaulH is forced into posting under two identities to make it look like there are other people that agree with him. What an utter cunt.

    @will Obviously you do, or you wouldn't be responding. Cunt.

    Shut the fuck up, all you of you.

    Anyone who uses Facebook or Twitter is a cunt.
