In the US when you buy a used car you can use it’s VIN number to check it’s carfax. The carfax shows you all the accidents, ownership changes, registrations, pretty much everything the car has ever been through.
So for the last few days I have also been visiting the People of Walmart and the Regretsy sites as linked above, and I don’t like them. A photo of an overweight poor person in bad clothes is almost funny, but the comments are so ugly and hateful that it saps all joy I got from the photo. The same with Regretsy. Since the 3 sites are pointing to each other, is that hate going to seep onto here too?
@ chiiro – their ads show couples of whoever at the car dealership and the dealer is spewing his usual nonsense and the buyers go “whoa, show me the carfax”. The dealer looks confused and the usual hijinks ensue. He tries to change the subject, blah blah blah. I can’t believe I just wrote this.
buttermilk, not sure about the POW comments, afraid to visit the comments section of a site that’s basically built on mocking people based on appearances, but I read the comments section of the Regretsy article about teaming up with POW and Lamebook, and apparently the members on there hate us all, so I guess we’re safe there :p
@lamebookpro, why are you directing that comment to me? I know what Carfax is..
In regards to POW and Regretsy, I haven’t checked out the former but there are very few websites where I read the comments. Failblog generally has an array of trolls, icanhascheezburger is overkill in the LOLspeak. I only checked out Lamebook’s because the latest comment is posted right under the entry, and it seemed like it was generally an intelligent bunch.
