An Amazon list

I've just found out that Amazon.co.uk has a list of all I've bought from them. From this I found out:
1: I can rate items without reviewing them, which I had just been wishing for ten minutes prior.
2: I have bought one thousand, four hundred and ninety-two items from or via A.co.uk in the last twelve years! Friggin' eck!

Averaging one item every three days?!

By the way, what happened to your recent O2 post?

I removed it. Although I still think it strange that they charge for Internet use which is happening on my own wifi, they do only charge if I don't top up ten Pounds per month, so I let it lie. It's the cheapest deal I'm liable to get.

Yep, one per three days!
Though I know there's a woman in this neighborhood who buys something similar from them *per day*! (And I think that's mostly books, mine is all kinds of stuff, there's barely anything you can't buy from Amazon, and the one-click thing is so handy.)

You should list it all here if that could be done easily. It would be interesting to see all you've bought. You know, the variety of the stuff.

Or not. Heh heh heh.

You idiot. That would be too much work for a lazy ass like Eolake. Even for a Dane he's a lazy fuck.

eolake said...

Ah Josie! Good to see you.

Yaa, Ah'm super-lazy. I prefer to think of it as "holy idleness", but of course these issues have been debated up and down the millennia. It's a pleasure to continue the tradition.

You really shouldn't be proud of it.

Pop! said...

Nor should you for criticising anonymously, coward!

Anonymous said...

Look who's talking, "Pop!"

Moron.

Link to my Web site not obvious enough for you, Anonymous? Realisation that I might, in addition to a mundane Internet presence, have a humorous profile on Blogger, beyond your mental capacity? Difficulty of signing up for your own screen name too high for you?

Who's the real moron/coward, hmm?

Definitely you, considering your web site and your other blogs don't reveal much about your real identity. Which of course you know.

You're still anonymous.

I'm sorry Pop I do not know what I was thinking. You have a screenname and webpages that mean others can see what you wrote. I guess that is an identity after all.

I'm still anonymous :(

Nice try Pop. Thanks for proving your idiocy. (I'm kidding - that wasn't a nice try.)

Someone’s having an identity crisis here — and it isn’t me! For all I know, each of those anonymous comments could have been posted by a different person, some of whom have the sheer hypocrisy to tell me I don’t have a “real” identity when they are the anonymous ones. What’s not real about my identity? Define “real”! Are some of you troubled by my omission of a photo and a postal address? How would such information make me any more “real”?

How is this hilarious discussion any less “real” than if we had met for a few minutes on a train and then never seen each other again? In a sense this is more real, since there is a record of it having happened. I don’t think any of you, however many there are, have considered the implications of your accusations, else you would have realised that however “anonymous” I may be, you are more so.

I don’t even have a problem with anonymity usually. The thing is, I thought the early anonymous comments in this thread were jokes, so I wrote a jokey response. Someone seems to have replied seriously and I assumed the anonymous comments were by one person, which may have been my big mistake here. Now I can hardly believe I’m being insulted for being “anonymous” by people who are literally anonymous!

I'm with ya. It does not matter one bit *what* name one uses online (and *most* people use another moniker than their civil name), but I think using one and sticking to the same one is common curtesy.

I agree with that. I think the point is just that most of are not much less anonymous than using Anonymous. The only reason I created an account is so that I wouldn't be impersonated and wouldn't have my comments lumped in with many of the very unpleasant anonymous ones. But, really, I'm still basically anonymous.

Pop! said...

That’s unnerving — I’m not used to being agreed with on the Net. Basically I agree that I’m fairly anonymous when I’m online — but I don’t believe many people are much less anonymous when they’re out walking, for instance, so I thought it was funny to be told off by Anonymous for being anonymous.

Anonymous said...

Anonymous only told you off because you told him/her off - you said that someone can't criticize if they do it anonymously. The point is that you too are anonymous.
