Threadless and the people who worship them!

I Hate Threadless

Fuck Threadless and their oh-so-clever bullshit! I hate the cult of Threadless.

If you do not know what Threadless is, take a moment to high-five yourself for being awesome. Threadless is a website where people send in their cutesy little t-shirt designs and an online community of lonely teens and aging hipsters with tiny glasses vote on which crappy doodle gets produced on actual t-shirts. Once these shirts are produced all the Threadless zombies rejoice and cum in their panties because every week they can buy more shirts with precious scribbles on them.

Do I think every Threadless shirt sucks? No, but I do honesty hate 98% of them. Do I think anyone who owns a Threadless shirt sucks? No, but I really can’t stand it when people are obsessed with them.

You know how there are just some things in life you hate but can’t quite explain why? Well this is not one of those things for me, I fucking hate Threadless.

    Right back atcha.

    You think you’re such a rebel, but you’re predictable.

    We’ve got a bet going on that you are a middle class kid living off your parents while hating them at the same time…

    Talk about predictable… Congrats on being the 10,000th person to tell me I’m a loser who lives in my mom’s basement blah blah blah.

    RARELY do I EVER feel the urge to justify my existence to anyone on this site but just for fun, I will go ahead and break it down for you in order to settle your “bet.” First of all, I love my parents, who just so happen to be awesome. Secondly, I’ve actually done pretty well for myself thanks to being a hard working, self-employed entrepreneur for over 15 years. Lazy is the LAST thing you can call me. Currently I live in FUCKING PARADISE (Hawaii) with my super hot, super cool girlfriend and every day is literally as close to perfect as it gets. I’ve lived an incredibly interesting and fulfilling life surrounded by the most amazing, creative and inspiring group of friends anyone could hope for. I PROMISE you I have lived 10 times the life you have.

    I’m sorry that your fragile feelings got hurt over a bunch a fucking dumb T-shirts. Please google the term “tongue-in-cheek” you big baby.

    Going to the beach now, like I do every day. I love you mom and dad!

    Sorry if touched a nerve…take it easy man.

    Don’t worry about me and my nerves, I took it easy all day.

    Dude, I genuinely apologise for the snide comment about you hating your parents…it was a cheap shot, and I take it back.

    Now, don’t get all upset, I just want to point out something quite boring here, so there is no need to get defensive – chill out and learn something. You made four critical errors in your attempt to handle the flaming post with contempt:

    1. Don’t justify your existence to the guy baiting you.

    By completely ignoring his/her comments, you achieve this by default. It’s tricky, because the temptation to sound off is overwhelming, but it’s definately worth it, because everybody knows that it takes strength of character to resist pride (especially with an audience).

    2. Don’t tell the antagonist that you ‘NEVER’ feel the urge to justify your existence, then go on to contradict yourself and justify your existence.

    I don’t recommend this tactic, because ‘NEVER’ is a big word (especially in caps). Nobody is stupid enough not to see through this, we all know that you can’t have your cake and eat it. Choosing whether to stay cool and aloof or ‘shoot back’ at least shows decisiveness.

    3. Never tell the offending troll that you ‘RARELY’ feel the urge to justify your existence, but that on this occasion you will condescend to do so as a favour.

    Obviously, if you employ such a ruse be careful of CAPS, as they expose the true emotional state and don’t lend credibility to the statement. However; actually, this tactic has some merit providing that:

    a.) The occasion used to compromise your normal high standard of engagement as the premise for the favour is credible.

    b.) That the generous allowance given isn’t exposed as false by the contradictory use of angry words /caps etc. It weakens the credibility of the favour.

    4. Never break all of the rules of engagement in one go if you want to retain a modicum of credibility.

    Employing such a statement as ‘RARELY do I EVER’ flies in the face of , and goes on to beg the question: Is it rarely, or is it ever? Clearly if it is both, then it must be neither, since they are contradictory and cancel each other out.

    Cheers…

    Nerd.

  7. Ferguccioon 03 Oct 2011 at 5:08 pm

    yep…that’s true.

    Good luck buddy 🙂

    Sounds like someone’s a bit salty… Stop hating! You’re just another raging jerk-off the internet doesn’t need.

  9. You Just Made My List!on 28 Oct 2011 at 2:48 pm

    Stop loving! That’s your problem, you have no hate filter.

  10. boianxon 29 Oct 2011 at 1:37 pm

    You’re gonna die a bitter, angry, little guy.

  11. You Just Made My List!on 29 Oct 2011 at 2:16 pm

    Congrats! Your insult is about as unoriginal as all those dumb Threadless shirts you own. Keep up the good work!

    Threadless can eat me. I just read some chump say he can make tons of money elsewhere (sure, pal) and royalties are ‘boring’, and he stays at Threadless for the community. Well, good for you, shining member of generation no-nuts (demonstrated by the music created), I’m glad you found your community. I for one, expect my work to be paid and maximized in this world, and it’s people like this weakling handing work out for nothing or little who make companies think they can walk all over everyone.

    So you come up with the world’s best t-shirt design (not likely) and the Threadless says, ‘welcome to our community: here’s your 2k, we’ll make possibly millions in perpetuity, but good job, SUCKA’. What ripoff business and legal schools did these punks and their istock muggers graduate from?

    Screw your business and your name for life with that kind of attitude. You belong in HR at GE. Community, my foot.

    Threadless can bite me. The cost of inception is quite low on the net. The people who treat artists and designers like people who deserve to make a living, even profit, off their abilities are the people who will grow large stables of actual talent, instead of crying loozas.

    yeah, this thread hasn’t been posted to in a year, but I was really glad I found it.

    Groupon had a Threadless deal today — $10 for a shirt. So, I spent almost two hours going through all of their designs. Now, I have a mild depression that has come upon me. Those designs suck! Everything looks like it belongs on a greeting card. At least half of the designs are based on a minor pun that may elicit a “heh” but nothing worthy of spending money on.

    By filtering through almost 1000 designs, I found 1 and only 1 shirt that I thought was OK. Now, I have to ask myself, “Do I really like this shirt, or am I just picking it because it floated to the top of a cess pool?”

    Those assholes sell two designs I made and give credit to someone else, I fucking hate them, I contacted them four times and they did not respond.

  15. You Just Made My List!on 07 Jun 2013 at 2:48 pm

    Mark – As long as they made their money, that’s all that matters. They can pretend to be easy-going hipsters but they are as evil and corporate as anyone. Just because you have graffiti and skateboard ramps in your office it doesn’t make you any less douchey. In fact, it makes you more douchey.
