Can we nip this "Paris Hilton" thing in the bud? We get it. You're pretending to be Paris Hilton. It's not very helpful, or funny; in fact, it is irritating to the point where I was debating calling "her" out myself.

Wow. I can't believe how quickly I got called out.

My feeling is that if someone drunkenly creates an account, you should at least be wait for them to sober up before calling them out.

No way. This one is funny. Because you know Paris Hilton is secretly brilliant and would say something is -4K.

My feeling is that annoying the hell out of everyone within (what appears to be) one hour after creating the account deserves at least a week off. You ought to be sober by then.

Look, this thread shouldn't be about me it should be about the monumental achievement of matthowie and all mefites. This is a fantastic website and we've over 30,000 users register (and 10k paying users). That's fantastic.

Here's hoping for another six years of fascinating FPPs and incisive commentary. This should be a celebration, not an opportunity to attack other users, regardless of how new, or clichéd she might be.

In this thread let's put the vitriol aside and focus on our accomplishments as a community!

Not sure what I think about Paris getting best answer in the dogs and Gatorade AskMe thread.

I have a question. Everyone seems to have a problem with Paris because she's obviously a sock puppet, but what guarantees do we have that the rest of us aren't sock puppets?

Think about it. We take for granted that all these different user names represent different people, but it is possible for 10-20 people to have 5 puppets each. Hell, who is to say that someone doesn't have 10 puppets, or 20? Who is to say anything, really, since no one really knows, including Matt?

You guys were played by dhoyt, but he was the only guy that got caught. Time for some of you to wake up and realize that as this place gets "bigger", it could be getting smaller too.

Well, yea, If I Had An Anus. If someone wants to make up 12 different sock puppuets who fit into the general landscape, who make meaningful comments, and all that jazz, let 'em. Why not. Not like we can really stop them all. But if someone is gonna use a sock puppet to be obnoxious, that's where I draw the line. This site is big, and getting bigger with constant additions to membership, and there will no doubt be some members who aren't "real". I can dig it, as long as they aren't annoying.
posted by ThePinkSuperhero at 8:02 PM on November 19, 2005 [1 favorite]


I guess all bannings amount to a user being tossed out because they are annoying. In Paris' case, however, she seems to suffer from a lower threshold of tolerance than her "real" peers. Would this n00b be tarred and feathered if her name was `justsally` and she made the same bad jokes?

She might find herself MeTa'd if her name were `th'Salicious1` and she linked her metafilter page with her myspace profile. But the snarks would be mocking, not murderous, and you can bet there would be a dozen young gallants rushing in to defend her. (Please don't take my imaginary girlfiend away.)
posted by If I Had An Anus at 8:17 PM on November 19, 2005


Yea, but the whole obnoxious part of Paris Hilton is that all her comments hinge on the one-note joke of her being this famous person. If justsally wanted to say everything was hot, that wouldn't be obnoxious to the point where it would stand out.

When I see Paris Hilton I think about the fact that Conrad Hilton was born in San Antonio, New Mexico which has a population of about 500 or something and is otherwise only noted for the best green chile cheeseburgers at the Owl Cafe. But, anyway, Paris Hilton is as far, far away from her family's origins as she possibly could be.

This is what I'm not getting. I've actually looked at Paris_Hilton's profile, where it as I write this shows 5 comments in MeFi, 7 in MeTa, and 3 in Ask. Of those, I looked at four in Mefi (all on topic), two in Ask (both on topic), and most of "her" comments in this thread.

No. Please stop being coy and just say what you mean. It seems that some people have a problem with Paris_Hilton because that user has 1) used an actual famous person's name for their user name and 2) sometimes posted comments that the actual famous person might say.

to be honest, i don't know how you can be bothered about such things in the face of the news on oral sex and cancer. i imagine paris hilton must be pretty upset about that too.

i've given up on trying to understand the whole online identity thing. when i think people should have a single identity online and off, people complain about "outing" anonymous identities; when i get my head round that they call anonymous posters "sock puppets" and get upset about them. presumably the idea is that within some kind of local environment - like metafilter - identities should be stable so that intimidation, mob rule, community policing, or whatever works properly; but that doesn't hold with $5 accounts, or more technical things like a lack of pki... but more than that, i can't understand why you're so upset by this thread. it's going nowhere as slowly as possible and all that's at risk is that taz ends up $5 poorer.

I don't have a problem with it. I was going to stick up for Paris Hilton, because I myself am a sock puppet by those standards. I mean, unless someone wants to believe that I really am a hyperintelligent, Grid-powered, conical planet-killing starship with an avatar resembling Sweetums from the Muppets and manly bulges for his mighty effectors.

I was just picturing different kinds of Paris Hiltons in my head... presumably the real one is Paris France Hilton, but there might also be Parris Island Hilton who's Queen of the Jarheads, or Paris The Dude From The Iliad Hilton who's, well, a dude.

If Saucy Intruder had just meant (or said) "Hey, Paris, that was a funny-once, so keep the references to your namesake to a minimum," that would be one thing. But (s)he didn't.

First of all, I must say I've probably come off as a bit agitated upthread, what with the call for bannination and all. Them's fighting talk! Sorry about that. Having said that:

It's a list of users with clever or ironic names who seem to have a problem with 'Paris_Hilton.' Simple. Not really worth all that work. Happy?

Oh, I'm reasonably content, but not with your point. It all comes back to the big dhoyt argument: think of my username what you will, but there's an email address on my profile and I check it regularly. Furthermore, my real first name is there and links to two of my websites, which contain my full name.

I wouldn't say that I feel this should be mandatory for all users, but I think it's obvious that if people take issue with a user it doesn't necessarily stem from the cleverness of their name alone.

I'm not bothered by users calling themselves Paris Hilton, Jesse Helms or marykate&kottkesbastardlovechild; it's the shitting in threads that's the problem. That last link goes to AskMe, and PH made a valid contribution to the thread IMO, but they were also being bullshitty and it's just not what AskMe is for. Then the buzz wears down and they suddenly get all sciencey and eloquent which I guess is an improvement. I just hope they stay that way.

But yeah, probably too much attention for Yet Another Silly Joke Account ©. I'll unclench now.

I'm seeing a trend.

Again, sounds like the usual behavior of most of us here

I don't think the comments were out of line for metafilter

Alright, fair enough. I was triggerhappy and reactionary - it must have been mainly the username that ticked me off. I'll drop it now.

Some of us like to have fun in a way that our coworkers [bosses really] might not appreciate. We need to maintain a vail of 'plausible deniability' for various stupid reasons. Especially if your shop is very on-line like mine.

What the fuck is going on here? What kind of drugs are you all taking?

You might catch yourself sliding in and out of a hallucinatory state after this is all over. If you do, just relax and enjoy it. It will soon go away. But for now... consider eating a nice sandwich.

... sliding in and out of a hallucinatory state ...

Word of advice: If it can at all be avoided, do NOT attempt to transfer Thunderbird profiles from a damaged to a rebuilt system while experiencing said states. The best of all possible result sets is a pounding headache....

If it's the real Paris Hilton, I take it all back. Girl, I love you and worship your trashy ways.

*drinks*

Ah, now I see. Wait, no I don't - it was an illusion.

*looks warily at the sandwich, eats it anyway*

*falls to the ground, clutching at throat and making "gawk, gawk" noises in throat*

I'm kinda amazed we got through a 100 comments about Paris Hilton's puppet without a single inline image.

Is there anybody left who is still taking this callout seriously? Because this comment in AskMe is 50% noise, because of the Paris persona. Which is bad.

The Lindsay Lohan Story

... 50% noise ...

Don't think that might have had something to do with the nature of that question?

I love the Lohan story and don't care if it's true.
posted by OmieWise at 11:02 AM on November 21, 2005


But it is true! That's the beauty of it.

(We know it's true because the real Jason Lewis has made public statements that he thinks the whole thing is disgusting.)

I came here via Paris Hilton's user page because I just saw she was #1 with a bullet on the MeFi Contribution Index. If she keeps up that pace, then I see a ban coming pronto and deservedly so.

Who the hell is Adam Savage ? I have never see his name while waiting in the grocery checkout line. Jennnifer Aniston is a celebrity. Bat Boy is a celebrity. But, Adam Savage ? Can someone link to independent proof of his celebrity ?

So.... whoever's #1...should be banned....?

Help me out, here. I'm not getting it.
