OK hipsters, bloggers and online gods and goddesses

Johnny wants you to all pull up a chair. We need to have a little sit down, just like they did on Sopranos.

So, you're a blogger, contribute to a blog or you run a social network website. MANY of these sites are very up on the latest website bells and whistles. There is ONE troubling trend Johnny has seen and we ALL need to snuff it out before it gets bigger. The Flash Music Players or other free to add to your website media players that AUTOMATICALLY play music when you show up. THIS NEEDS TO STOP.

It's NEVER cool
It's NEVER bleeding edge
It's NEVER funny
It's NEVER a great indicator of who you are

It's simply stupid. So, citizens, if you travel to a site that is addled with some narcissitic hipster doofus' Fall Out Boy or Coldplay or Korn or ANYBODY leave them a note. Tell them they are losers. Tell them they lack basic online skills of not annoying others. If YOU are a person who does this kind of jackassery, here is your cease and desist notice.

We now return you to your regularly scheduled life.

You could install flashblock on your Firefox browser and never be bothered by thoughtless web design.

This was cool, for about two days, back in 1997.
